Are Guilds Needed in GW2?
"With the release date rapidly approaching, guild recruitment has never been more emphasized. In fact, I have even begun searching for a guild I can call home over the last couple of days. Furthermore, many articles have been created over the last 24 hours, describing what you should be doing in the next two months before release. One of the most common features in these articles is that you should be in a guild. For many this has translated that to be effective, you need a guild. I largely disagree, the majority of players do not need to be in a guild. While socially effective and fun, do not think for a single moment that you need a guild to experience all the content in Guild Wars 2. Guilds have traditionally been "required" in MMOs, but may be considerably less critical for Guild Wars 2.
Previously, in many MMOs (specifically before the Looking for Raid feature), having a guild for end-game content was extremely important. In fact, to even see or compete in many of the raids or reach high into the rated PvP brackets, a player almost "needed" to belong to a guild.
I'll reiterate the question, are guilds needed in Guild Wars 2?"
