First of all I want to say, Order of Violence is a stupid name and I like the activity level we have had in the last few days.

Pro- Almost instantly doubles the raid attendance. (Should be able to do both raids in 1 night)
Pro- OoV's leader Alth says he will buy max guild size this weekend
Pro- 100 vault size instead of 70 (Shark raids will increase vault size)
Pro- If we merge then we don't have to compete for members against each other.

Con- We have been working to increase Guild services (Ventrilo, Forums, clean GV, etc)
Con- We are 49 players they are 15 (About same amount [10+/-] show up to raids)
Con- We lose our guild heritage.


I am going to publicly say that I am against the merger but I am presenting this to the guild as an option that we should consider. Alth will not merge into our guild, and he said he will be giving the guild over to another player he named as "wolf" when he quits (maybe Fortunawolf). Valorian will most likely outlive all of the currently players, but we will have to compete with Order of Violence if we do not merge in order to make sure it does. I have a feeling that their well beings conflict each other.

Before we make any decisions, let's see how the raid attendance goes for the rest of the week

I don't get what this means. Do shark raids increase the vault? If so, can we focus on that and get our own GV to 100, thus nullifying this pro?


I am also against the idea. Attendance ebbs and flows. I don't think we should jump ship because they currently have solid attendance. If we have a big guild, we can continue to hold the line and keep people coming (or send 'em packing). If GV size is really the deciding factor then we can work around it with mules and the like. I do think we need more GV discipline, but that is beyond the scope of this thread. :-)


It seems like a fair-weather choice. I also second what fry said, and let's at least wait to see if we can keep improving attendance.


Valorians!

I think they mean that if we start shark raids, we will need more GV space for shark raid related items.

Possible loot for the shark raid is a shard (1/5 i believe) of a guild vault upgrade.  5 of these items would increase our capacity by one, i think.

Stick with your guns.

I can't really attend raid times but I do kill minions. Spend all my adventure points on it now that i'm 14. The only advantage for me is if the merger brings raid times closer to times I can attend. If not then it really doesn't matter.

i'm thinking of yes.... if we can split the raid time...
i don't think it'll change our tradition much with the extra 15 members
cuz we already have addition of 25 members since before chonas left
but if we merge i suggest they merge into us, not otherwise.

Pretty sure this topic is done. Everyone (including me) hates the idea! =)

Well, the current voting is only a 10% sample rate for the total guild population, and it's not a landslide (No by 1 vote). 
This comes back to the question of getting members to come here to the forum and actually read what's going on.


Maybe we can continue discussing during raid chat? I know that's still only a slice of the guild, but it's at least more data.
