    Girl no, woman yes. It all depends on the person though.

    No ! I guess depends on person.    If the female GM is married have a child and is a hard core raider I will never follow such person.  I've seen lot of cases and I was disgusted and horrified by females in games. 

    As a person who loves women a lot I can't accept them as nasty selfish rude gamers . But I guess not all are like this.

    Not   vg or boobies makes my point simply I disgusted by some people who have child but don't pay attention to them and in this case they give more attention to game.  

    And as a fresh teacher I can tell you parents changed a lot last 20 years. This new generation is selfish rude with 0 compassion for others. I thing this selfish attitude is reason why kids are so poorly educated they are thrown to their grand parents who are to old for this...

     

    Female gamer as a balanced  hobby    OK

    Hard core raid leader   NO never !

    The guild leader's gender doesn't matter to me, so yes, I would have no problems joining one led by women.

    And I think you're basing your observation on what's happening on some MMO that probably doesn't hold much appeal to female gamers.

    I have been in guilds led by both genders, usually high end raiding guilds.

    I haven't really come across the issue to be honest,  perhaps you just see this because there are more men in general playing MMOs.

    I admit the games where I saw more guild leaders were games like Everquest 2 which have a higher percentage of women playing than say World of Warcraft.

     

    Personally gender doesn't even come into my decision making when joining a guild, its more about player dynamic and performance.

    It's odd, but the only female lead guild I've ever been in was my 2nd one ever back in lineage 1 over 10 years ago.

    There have been a couple of husband/wife run guilds with co leadership, but i just haven't run into many for some reason.

    Well one reason is a lot of my time had been in EVE and the ratio is low there, but otherwise it should have been a more standard distribution.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    I wouldn't have a problem joining a guild run by girls. Its been awhile since I have run across that  but I recall years ago when Horizons was popular the guild I  was in called Rising Phoenix was run by a girl/woman  by the name of Neferia (dragon) and she was just  has much of a leader as any man.

    Meion,

    I've been in one guild where the GM was female. The gender of the GM and/or officers/leadership does not concern me. The attitude, ethics, and capability of the person in these positions is all that really matters to me as a member of a guild. I have seen some guilds before, where the guild was advertised as "all female", and male players were not allowed to join. I've never seen a guild advertised as "all male", though. Most GMs are probably male, simply due to the fact that most gamers are still male.

    Obviously yes, they do just as good (sometimes better) a job.

    I was in a PVP guild lead by a woman before and believe me, she could kick your ass around with the best of em.

    There are a few IFs regarding that topic. And gender would be the least important aspect. Most of the time you only associate your fellow players with their avatars.

    1) What kind of guild is it?
    2) Do I get along with the guild leader?
    3) Do I get along with the other guild members?

    If it's a raiding guild then people should be expected to behave in a professional manner. More often it's a partnership on time, so questions 2) and 3) are not that important.

    If it's not a raiding guild then questions 2) and 3) are more important. Ideally guild members would hang out together and play together (not all the time, but frequently enough).

    I remember a couple of clans in darkfall had female leaders, like oromea. even tho I'm pretty sure hardcore niche games like darkfall have even less females playing them than any other sort of computer game. even games like lesuresuit larry probably have more female fans than darkfall.

    Why wouldn't I? Different body parts between legs don't make anyone more or less qualified as guild leaders

    The only guild I was ever in had a trio of people in charge: two young woman and a young man.  For the time I stayed in it I thought it was a great guild.  It was the two woman who did most of the organising, since the guy had a lot of college work to plough through, and it was one of the most popular guilds on the server.

    Why not? Unless she has those ferrari size boobs which would mean it's very hard to operate the keyboard, I guess, cant think of any other reason. Oh what the heck, even that would not matter, as long as she and the rest of the guild is having fun!

    Where is the difference?

    Both male and female have leading qualities.

    I personally prefer female over male. Those guilds are much more "together". Personal opinion.

    Agreed. I don't care what gender, affiliation or even species they are as long as they are a good leader. 

    OP, don't confuse anecdote with fact.

    Yep, been in several guilds led by women, nothing wrong with that, didn't notice much of a difference to guilds led by guys tbh, just my own experience though. A guild leaders gender doesn't have any impact on how well a guild is doing.

    Probably not! I like girls just as much as the next guy but when it comes to mmorpgs I'm a competetive pvp'er. Just like I probably wouldn't join a girls basketball team or a girls soccer team. I'm not saying there aren't girls out there that are better than me but as far as the probability that a girl lead guild is going to be ownage at pvp.....mmmmmm probably not.

    If the guild leaders are compentant what difference does it make who they are?

    They could be cannibal aliens from planet Fsoodirken, wouldn't make any difference to me.

    I've never seen a female guild leader, but I wouldn't care if I was in one as long as the guild was laid back and not too hardcore.
  • SmoeySmoey CambridgePosts: 572Member Uncommon

    Why would it matter what gender they are?

     

    Welcome to the 21st Century, nice of you to finally join us. For the person that stated they would not join due to PVP reasons, most women that I have encountered are much better at PVP than their male counterparts.

    *facepalms* Honestly, I can't believe I'm reading this in the second decade of the 21st Century. 

    What does gender matter? It's the ability of a person to lead others, to understand the game they're playing and to make things happen for the guild. Not all of us are pink ponies and rose-colored glasses.

    The other thing: "Girls"? Do we call male leaders "boys"? Why not "women" or "female" or whatever? 

    Female gamer as a balanced hobby OK Hard core raid leader NO never !

    Would the same be said about a male gamer as a hardcore raid leader? Why is a father's responsibility to his children, according to you, less crucial? 

    Sheesh.
