The main thing I find a bit difficult with this article is the poster's assertion he's happy to guild hop to get what he wants. Personally, I think guilds thrive upon loyalty. Ours has been together now for nearly 7 years, through thick and thin with a core membership, and we've seen a lot of guild hoppers along the way. We've had our lean times, and burgeoning times. As any guild who's stuck with it will no doubt say, it's just ups and downs. As far as members are concerned, and their personal aims, it depends on what goals a guild has; ours is to progress as much as we can through current content, with adult members who have family/job commitments etc. But nowadays we'd be wary of taking on new members who'd clearly shuffled about a lot. It's annoying for any guild to have a solid raid member saunter off to another guild they regard as better to get their loot or progression fix quicker. To us teamwork, and building relationships to function better as a team, is paramount. In this respect I suppose WoW is a social media, but some people might choose to opt out of that and simply go where they perceive the shinies to be. That really isn't about socialising but just personal gain. WoW is a broad game; there are many facets within it, sympathetic to different styles of play and socialising.
