Is Guild Management Affecting Your Albion Trip
The guild management tools for ao are a joke. This needs to be solved time now. The entire game is centered guild warfare. It's ridiculous that guilds don't have things like guild banks, custom ranks, customized permissions.
Want another admin who can do help you out? For them to have sufficient admin abilities to do anything, they have to be right hand or master of coin. Which also gives them full access to the guild vault...
Need a place for your members to store mats for guild use? You need to give them FULL access to the chests... No in between. No partial access, all or nothing.
The solution is you have your lower members give the mats to higher ranking members whom can then transfer the mats into the chest. This leads to another problem as you'll need at least one high ranking official babysitting the guild chests all day.
Want to keep track of guild spending? There is no ledger, there are no spread sheets of any kind to keep track of any silver going in or out. Hope your right hand isn't embezzling because you'd never know.
There is literally no point in there being a master of coin rank there is nothing in the game to support it's duties. An accountant with no ledger and no bookkeeping. Hope he's not embezzling either.
Want to keep track of your guild recruitment? Nope, you have to manually look through the list to look for who is new and who may have been kicked by a salty warmaster. Good luck if you have more than 20 members.
The solution is "then don't promote them to warmaster", yeah but then you have to start all the gvg's yourself and have no ability to empower your members without giving them more power than they need to do their job.
I've played fps games with better guild systems than this. They didn't even need guild cohesion. Hell clash of clans has a better guild system than this.
I love ao, but your guild system is bare bones. For a game that focuses on guild so much this if not an area that can be put off.
When my friends ask me about ao as to whether it's worth it, I say absolutely. When they ask about the guilds in the game I'm to embarrassed to tell them the truth.
Me: "Oh the guilds? Yeah... they'll be great.... eventually..."
Me: "They're great..."
