Guild Question

I'm posting this here because there doesn't seem to be a Q&A in the Guild Category, only people looking to join or recruiting for Guilds. If it needs moved, please do so.

I'm in a Guild that has a Leader that has not been active in almost a year. There is only 1 Elder, and about 5 or 6 members who actually play. The rest have all been inactive for months.

Can the Elder kick the current Leader - or promote someone else to Leader?

Those who do play in this Guild are interested in re-vitalizing the team, but we have no Leader and don't want to go looking for another Guild.

    Unfortunately, no. Elders do not have that power over the leader. It sucks but you'll probably have to have a do over. Gather your fellow guildies and start fresh. Good luck!

    No. No one can banish the Leader.

    def just take the active players and start a new one. No need to keep getting rewards for the 2/3 of the guild that you say are not playing at all.

    Thanks guys!

    What benefits does the Leader have that Elders don't?
  • TJSTJS Member Posts: 4,501
    No real benefits other than no one can banish a Leader. To be honest it can be less benefit as the Leader is the only one who can advertise for new members (which is 100 gold for 24hr ad)

    FYI: @TJS if you trust your guild members the mantle of leadership can be passed to another player and back. That helps in spreading the cost of advertising.

    @sicBryan good question:

    Here's some helpful advice for running a guild (previously posted here..

    1) Use an external chat for all members (make it mandatory for joining) (LINE, Groupme, Slack, etc). (As to why see 4).
    2) A guild should be able to function with 1 leader and/or 1 elder. (Don't use the elder position as a reward for performance (that's what gifts are for). Even with an absent leader the guild can fully function with 1 trusted elder.
    3) Only promote to elder users you fully trust.
    4) When the shit hits the fan use 1) to regroup.

    I'm aware of this @zbot but in the case of this discussion, he's guild leader has left or inactive.

    I was in a guild that was in the same boat. We were trying to figure out how to all migrate somewhere else together without using a third party chat ap. (Not everyone was willing to bother going down that road, but wanted to move together) And this was all because we had an absent leader.

    So one member started a dummy account, started a new guild with a unique name (made it easier for everyone to find it later), and then relayed the new guild name via the chat of the old guild. Everyone jumped ship together, and 17 people successfully moved together, and the formerly absent leader was taken out of the equation.

    Pretty easy this way.
