MMO guilds are groups of players in online games who band together to defeat challenges and socialize. They come in various sizes and types, focusing on different tasks such as raids, PvP combat, or helping lower-level players. Guilds communicate through tools outside the game and players should be careful when joining and sharing personal information.

An MMO guild is a group of players in a massively multiplayer online game. Guilds can be large or small and can consist of players who know each other outside of the game or players from many different geographic areas. These groups band together to defeat challenges in the game that require multiple players to complete, and to socialize and connect with other players.

Guilds come in a variety of sizes and types. For example, a group of close friends who all play the same online game together might form a small MMO guild made up of only the people they know. Other guilds are extremely large and can have hundreds of members. They can actively recruit online players to join their guilds, especially players who own in-game items and armor that give them an edge when fighting enemies in the game or completing difficult in-game tasks.

There are many types of tasks and styles of play in many online games, and an MMO guild can choose to focus on one type of challenge or task or multiple. Many MMO games feature raids or dungeons, which are instances that force players to team up to defeat lots of extremely challenging foes and foes. As a result, some guilds focus on raiding. Other guilds may form to help lower-level players advance their characters, or to take part in player versus player (PvP) combat, in which players fight other players rather than battling computer-controlled creatures and enemies.

Some online games use other terms for guilds, such as clan or crew, but groups with these names operate much like an MMO guild in any other game. Guild members are often referred to as “guilds” by MMO players. Guilds often communicate through tools outside the game, such as instant messengers or voice chat clients, such as Skype, Ventrilo or TeamSpeak. Many guilds prefer to communicate via voice chat to keep players’ hands free for play, and some guild leaders, or guild masters, require members to communicate via voice chat during certain matches or raids.

Children and teenagers who play MMO games should be especially careful when joining guilds and communicating with guild members. While it’s easy for someone to feel like a long-playing true friend, it’s pretty easy for some people to hide their true identities and motivations in an online environment. Players should always be careful to keep their personal information, such as real names, phone numbers, and addresses, private to maximize security.
