Of all other parts of the update I'm really quite positive, and I'm looking forward to it a lot. It's just this one thing that really bothers me. Here is why:
"Automatic inactive Leader change: If a guild leader doesn’t log in for 45 days, his rank will automatically be changed to a lower hierarchy rank (see above for hierarchy). The highest hierarchy member, if not inactive in the last 15 days, will automatically be named Leader. If no member fulfills these requirements, nothing will happen until a member does."
IT does sound a bit materialistic, but for a good guild leader, that is what they play for, to achieve just that. Being the guild leader, and especialy the guild creator with such a vision in the back of their mind a guild is like a child of the leaders morals and values. If the leader decides to take a break from the game, the guild should be able to continue in the same fashion. But passing the guild over to someone else, without the leaders consent; the consent of the creator, mind, heart and soul of a guild. That is cruel, thievery almost. Your child will always remain your child, you can't transfer them to their next best parent automatically. I would feel victim of a huge theft if this happened to me. I've lead several guilds in Dofus, back in 2005-2010. Those guilds still remain on characters of me. They symbolize a huge chunk of my memories of the game. Occasionally I log on in the guild that once was big, full of laughter, the ghost of that time still reflecting through the logo of the guild... It makes me happy I can still log to see that. [if someone decide to quit for a year, they should be able to come back to the guild they loved, guided and created. The materialistic part: it's sort of their property. Sets don't change to their friends when its not used for 45 days.]
Risking to lose that on Wakfu sounds rediculous, terrifying and saddening to me. I don't think I ever felt so upset about a choice Ankama's made.I don't want anyone taking over my baby, my vision and my hard work. They may lead it in my spirit when I'm gone, I would love that and appreciate it highly, but its still my memory and my creation with my sweat and tears in it.
[other or the same opinions, let it be heard to Ankama?
Thanks for reading.
