I could be wrong, but are you guys located close to one another? I just see random SO members scattered around in remote places, which means more than likely, all the fleet will be scattered around as well.
I like the idea of each large guild taking a smaller guild under its wings, but that is already happening to some extent. Usually this is because those smaller guilds are willing to provide extra gates, or help keep tabs on what's happening in the larger guild's backyard while ops are underway.
we are all strongholded off in G49 and G50,we do have a odd member not in them galaxys but 80% of us are in them 2 galaxys,we have level 12/13/14 and soon a level 15 JG and will closly follow by a level 16.
when i started i had over 100 members in G50 alone,1 month later 75 of them members left us to form other guilds and later down the line we get farmed cos we are in there stronghold,im sorry but SO was the first guild to be formed in G50,i know this cos i waited for it to open and the second it open i was recruiting like a islamic recruiter on heat,today G50 is a bad place to be in,even though we have level 10-15 JGs all spread out in scanner free regions we still cant go back. now we set out to create another stronghold in G49,reason being that we can move from G50 to G49 very fast, but G49 is controled by the same people who control G50.
its not that we dont want to merge,its we refuse to give into the way AE works,i had a goal 3 years ago,i never reached it,just b/c i fell on my bum trying to fullfill my goal dont mean i cant get back up.
as long as SO has its JGs and epic locations then we will not merge, we want to be a top 10 guild,we want to form our own block,we want to have a slice of freedom like all you other guilds.
and like i said,merging will create more problems the solutions,i want to look at the ranks page and see balance not one sidedness.
to the small guilds of gamma reading this: SHOW ME SOME SUPPORT AND FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT FOR FREEDOM AND SAFETY.
do not quit cos you got farmed,fight them back. work with me small guys.
