Guest Post: Guild wars pit friend against friend

This article has been brought to you by Seed, the Aol guest writer program that brings your words to WoW.com.

World of Warcraft is a social game. Blizzard made this clear with the recent addition of the Real ID system. I myself have made use of this. Being an officer in several small roleplaying guilds on both Alliance and Horde sides of Cenarion Circle (US), I have found that there is a great bit of planning and organization required in running official guild wars. Currently, the Alliance guild I am an officer in is in a heated battle with a Horde-side guild. Both are roleplaying guilds. Both guilds (in the roleplaying sense) have similar ideas -- both are pro-Horde/pro-Alliance, respectively. One may hate the other side more than the other, but the hate is there.

These guild wars bring a certain fun dynamic to the game. Having a sworn nemesis, whether it is for a character of your creation or a friend from an opposing faction, is just a great way to enjoy the game. Plotting someone's demise, thinking of strategies to take him down? It adds another layer to an already multifaceted world.

Call for Submissions: Declarations of war

Does your guild have a declared mortal enemy? Many PvP-oriented guilds (especially those on PvP or RP-PvP realms) keep world PvP and storylines popping with formal guild wars. How do you find a like-minded guild to battle? Do you set rules of engagement? Do you mix in scheduled events, or are things best kept fresh by keeping them loose? How do you prevent incidents from becoming rancorous or personal?

WoW.com is accepting article submissions on managing guild wars in World of Warcraft. Submissions should be between 750 and 1,000 words. We will not accept articles submitted under player names or pen names; please use your full, real name and email. Artwork is not mandatory, but any you choose to include must be your own work or from creative commons.
