Who deserves a castle??

Since the illustrious Guild Fair is starting soon, which guilds do you think are going to occupy each of the five castles on your server? Please explain your reasoning. There are only five castles per server, so choose wisely!

Rule: You may not name your own guild.

Feel free to reserve your answer until after the fair.

    I deserve a castle. But as for the guilds participating I'm not really sure tbh.

    Edit: GREED BEFORE NEED @lexmax

    I honestly think the largest guilds will be the first....

    2 months into release this will change as the guild structures WILL change, as they always do.

    The biggest question is, Which guilds will stay alive through the first initial months? This will  be the make or break time frame that determines if a guild will stay together or fall apart

    I haven't chosen a guild yet but have talked to alot of different guilds. I think it's too early to tell. 

    In Archeage, on my server the 4 biggest guilds each had a castle as soon as they were released. At one point one guild had 2. But it changed so much it was hard to predict.

    I'm thinking the guild with the best node will probably hold a castle for sure.

    It's hard to determine who will own the castles as we don't fully know the mechanics behind claiming a castle nor do we know much about the guilds that will actually be playing during release. Browsing the forums, not many guilds even stand out to me as being well known.

    I don't think you talked to us, I know this because I saw you post about L2 being your favorite MMO and I have been keeping an eye out for fellow L2 veterans

    My guild has always been a relatively small guild, because we only invite people we enjoy playing with us (whether it's people we know in real life or people we meet in the game itself. A reason why we're not taking part in tomorrows guild fair.) But what we've always done fairly well with is interaction with other guilds, large and small - whether you call it diplomacy, alliances, guild friendships, or whatever.  

    It's this sort of networking between multiple guilds that I think may be interesting for cities in AoC.  Sure, very large guilds may be able to take control of an entire city itself.... but I suspect that it's going to take multiple guilds in cooperation the majority of the time, regardless of guild size. 

    Now will that apply to castles as well?  Possibly.... even if the game mechanics don't account for guilds in cooperation to officially share a castle, I could foresee a guild within an alliance of guilds claiming the helm while the allies take advantage of the resource.  Of course, you'd have to trust your allies wouldn't you?  Oh, the intrigue and political drama that could unfold in such a circumstance....   heavy is the head that wears the crown.  Its' that sort of intrigue that I love to see in games. You can't create a game specifically for it, you just need a system in place that allows it to happen.

    With such a long wait it's hard to tell.  I've looked at some guilds out of curiosity to see what's developing but there's a long time to choose.  I do think it will have to be a well organized and all inclusive guild that understands economics and recognizes that even the little people or solo people are an important part of the whole. It's going to take much cooperation not just how big or strong you are.
  • Options
    If there are only 5 castles per server, multiple guilds will have to be able to claim one castle.
  • Options
    There can be guild wars to fight for castles or territory. Maybe if the guild becomes top 100 or somewhere up there they can start the construction of their own guild house. And maybe a small guild can have a tiny guild house, like Jorrvaskr in TESV: Skyrim.
  • Options
    Guild house is separate from castle.
    But, yeah.

    Strictly following the rules of the subject line (and consciously ignoring anything else that doesn't serve my own ends.....)

    Who deserves a castle?  / raises paw........Me

    Why, explain your reasoning?...........hummmmm because?

    I think I reasonably answered all the questions (and I'm not a guild!). :*

    What I'd like to join is the Guild for all those who want to be Intrepid Explorers on their own...! Can there ever be that sort of Guild?
    I'm the type who'd like to be off exploring uncharted areas and return to the Guild for a weekly chat about my adventures, probably whilst winding down in the Guild jacuzzi (*) before going off to the bar? Then the next day I'd be adding to and restocking from the Guild Store before setting off again in a different direction....
    Sometimes I might like to take one or two stealthy and cautious others along with me as company. 
    Where would I fit in?
    (*why do you think I so love my towel!?)

    Can I be on the server where @nagash and @Umji both have castles, because that way then I'm guaranteed to meet my life goal of dying with laughter.

    see now compare my castle to a orks and you see why the dead alway win

    Of the current guilds I don't think any will have a castle, by launch (2-3yrs out) I doubt any of the current guilds will be around in enough force to secure them.  It is highly likely that 3-6mo before launch the hard core guilds will open recruitment and start taking names.
