Advantages of a Guild

Guilds offer many benefits to the player.

A Place to Communicate

Every guild has it's own mini-forum, where users can post and other users can reply. It's a very simplistic feature as it need not require much. Moderators can delete messages or threads if they are problematic.

Posting on this forum has a cooldown of once per minute, to prevent spam.

Attack / Support Board

View all of the incoming and outgoing attack and support commands from every village in the guild. This helps players coordinate their attacks and defenses.

Status Board

View all of the villages in the guild, their scores, their constructions and army sizes. This helps players understand what their guildmates are doing, and then fill in any gaps they see on their own.

Resource Board

View resources for each village in the guild, and allow for sending resources to guildmates.

Dungeon Board

View dungeons that other players would like to undertake and have requested for help on, and commit resources to help them if desired.

Forming a Guild

Anyone can form a guild. However, guilds are limited to 50 players (not villages).

Guilds have three recruitment settings: open, invite-only / request, and closed. Guilds with open invitation allow anyone to join as desired. Guilds with invite-only / request invitation require a senior member of the guild to invite any newcomers, and newcomers can apply to the guild. Guilds with closed invitation cannot have join requests, but can still send out invites.

Guilds have 4 roles: leader, moderator, member and basic. Leaders can appoint new moderators and leaders, as well as take any moderator actions. Moderators can only take moderator actions. Members do not have any special functionality, but can view guild boards. Basic members do not have any privileges whatsoever. Leaders and moderators can set the default role a joining member is.

Moderator functionality includes: inviting a player, kicking a player, managing invitations, managing messages on the forum, and viewing the audit log.

It is advantageous to join a nearby guild, as players can much more easily support each other this way.
