2 merges, we are holding rank 2 on the guilds stuff but our server has many russians, spanish people etc so they all make their own guilds which is nice.
Also I refuse to go through an online dictionary and translator to communicate with people. Either they understand basic english and are welcome or they don't understand and can just take footinarse airlines to somewhere else.
There is a huge influx sometimes, currently we have 49 active people and over a course of a month or 2 there is some variance, but it usually seems to fill up.
The upside is that guild wars is great to organise as everybody that reads the strategy listens and as 2nd guild we also had a great arena wars event due to great and easy communication.
So it has benefits aswell
