Honestly? The perks are not worth any of the headaches this "deal" will most likely ultimately cause. The other officer is basically just politely attempting to poach you and members of your guild for his own personal means (whatever those may be, which is probably an effort to fill numbers out). This has bad idea written all over it, especially since your current guild is in the teens and worked hard to get there. If you abruptly try to convince everyone to move just to save a few levels and gain a few perks, then you may be the target of a lot of resentment aimed your way. Some people will probably even quit you and your group altogether as a result.Putting myself in their shoes, if I were chugging away on a guild and doing perfectly fine, and then someone approached me and said, "Hey! Someone offered us a way into a level 25 guild and even offered to change the name of their guild to the name of this one, wanna go?" I'd probably feel like the person asking had no faith in us as a group, or me as a person. Or that they valued those few levels over our effort.While guild perks are nice, they are definitely not the end-all, be-all of guilds. I am actually kind of sad about what guild perks have effectively done to anyone trying to start a new guild-people just don't want to join low level guilds as it stands, and it can be really difficult to get people recruited to that end. You've got a good thing going, just keep at it! Don't buckle, and don't take the snake oil salesman's offer of promises of a greener pasture if you move. He's requiring you to literally destroy your old guild in order to make this happen (I am assuming he cannot rename his guild to yours if yours still exists as such). It's not worth it.
