With guilds becoming increasing popular, It's almost certain that guilds will be taking control of all the land in Cyrodil campaigns. Being such a big part of the game, we need a place for guild members to schedule raids, converse and discuss the game. Upon release of TESO, do you guy's think Zenimax should have a section of their site dedicated to guild pages?

Although most game developers have this, I'm talking about a really in-depth, yet simplistic interface. It would show territories controlled, it can be linked to facebook or even your phone. Alerting you when a Keep your guild controls is under attack. Private forums for member's only, and various other features.


Also, I understand we have free website's to make guild pages. But guild's are going to be so enveloped in the world of Tamriel, we need a direct line of communication from the guild, to the game.

I'm more than certain they will. They've been making comments about an Offline Page to find guilds so I'm going to say, Yes there will be Guild Pages.

Well, they have been saying they want to integrate existing social networks like facebook or twitter. Maybe this is how?

A war map would be awesome, showing guild/alliance movements so you can keep track of it on your phone.

Something like you see in the civil war in Skyrim.

It would be awesome, but I doubt it.

Forums and such should be confined to a guilds website.

I would just go the route of World of Warcraft and use the same in-game guild interface. A tab with a calendar that allows you to schedule events, with times, dates, event type, etc. Also have a tab with guilds news & message of the day.

You suggest doing an awful lot of what every other game has done.
The idea is to be innovative.

Yess thank you Avidus. That's just the the thing, we want this to be the upgraded version of all MMO's in every aspect that they can make it. It would be preferable to keep everything very organized.

It would be a unnecessary luxury and would put more stress on zenimax. All you need is an in-game guild calendar to schedule events. I'm indifferent about the cyrodiil maps, but the forums for discussing things is really unnecessary and should be confined to a guilds website.

It wouldn't really be much more stress, if you have the war map in-game, merely take it present in on a forum, done and done.
If it is an exact replica of what you would see on a map in-game then you just have to feed the information onwards.

It saves people who are not currently playing the game the effort of logging in to check if something has gone sour.
It also grants the opportunity for the community to get a lot more involved is large movements, for example;
A battle of a huge scale starts out at Chorrol, and this is a vital point for your guild or your own interest, you can then log in, participate, then carry on as you were.

Since the game is linked into social media, I don't think its too much to ask, I would consider the games own forum to be a part of the social media that should be involved.

For me if they don't crack the guild system, then it could be a game ruiner.

*Should they have a way of registering player based guilds ? YES
*Should they have rules on how guilds run themselves ?NO
*should they have rules on how guild operate? NO
* "do you guy's think Zenimax should have a section of their site dedicated to guild pages?" ....NO thats what sites like this are for.
* "But guild's are going to be so enveloped in the world of Tamriel, we need a direct line of communication from the guild, to the game. "
...........Im not sure about this or what it means..........build a guild website and hire a clan voice server ? or do you expect the developer to do that for you?

Zenimax's job is to make a playable game that we can all enjoy.
How we as players interact in that world should be our decision I do not want them to decide on how I play the game, I just want them to provide a world where I can decide how Im going to play in it.

@thren

Well with constant battles taking place, back and forth between factions there has to be some sort of notification system. The best way would be having guild pages as close as they can to the game, so a map could be updated on controlled areas.

Maybe a "faction" link/notice might be a possible answer to what your asking for. Anything linking "guilds" though, is a bad idea and a slippery slope. I dont see Zenimax putting something like that in their official site. The dynamics of in-game guilds is just to complicated and unstable.

Perhaps, a simple link to this information that individual guilds can include in their guild websites. Even then, they could only show overall battleground progess, NOT strategies. Anything linking strategies is extremely open to abuse. If your not logging in, then overall progress is the most you need anyway, really.

Thats all assuming that making an all inclusive Cyrodil progress monitor, is actually feasible. Lets be honest here, none of us know anything about the new engine theyve created for this game, and how it really works yet.
