Thanks for the suggestion. I appreciate the intent, so thank you.
Unfortunately, that wouldn’t make sense as we actually have fewer than 10ish inactive/low activity accounts left and I’m not the kind of player to ditch half my mates. We’ve actually got a pretty good vibe going on inside the guild, which is nice. Gift requests are easy, people answer each other’s questions, etc.
If you’re trying to judge “inactive” by the gift counter which is a count of recent gifting activity, that yields quite a few false positives. Not everyone is into gifting while others like myself make heavy use of it. For example, the 3rd player on our current rankings has zero gifts, but he/she actually plays alot and always makes the climb in trophy ranks every time they reset and engages in chat periodically. That’s the same with many others of those with zero gifts that are quite active in playing, just not into gifting. Different players have different play styles, which is fine. Everyone’s gift requests get filled without issue regardless.
I took over as guild leader maybe a month ago and have been sorting out the dead accounts in as fair a way as possible. I took screen shots of everyone’s profiles when I started and as new members have been coming in and have looked not just at gifting totals, but also Renown progress, current trophies, highest trophies, hero levels, and comments in guild chat over the last several weeks for indications of activity.
I’m assuming the Guild isn’t crazy with openings. So merging would actually mean we would be setting adrift several dozen active members. If we were fewer in number, it wouldn’t be a bad idea and one I’ve been a part of in another game.
That said, I do like your idea SilverMoon from a different angle.
If there are dying guilds out there with a few active members looking to join a more active guild, I do have several spots I’m looking to fill where a player could come with some of their guild mates. So feel free to hit me up and we’ll see if we can work something out.
