Guild hopper is a term used to describe players of World of Warcraft who join a guild for the sole purpose of gaining loot, then leaving to join another guild. It was possible for this type of player to gear themselves up in a very short space of time by gaining drops from boss kills with their guild.
If you’ve been in a lot of guilds, chances are that somewhere along the line someone you know has considered you a guildhopper. You may not fit the definition above, but whether you left your guilds for good or bad reasons often doesn’t matter since all we see when researching guild history is the number. The question is do you think your guild number is a bit over the top, or is all fair in WoW and loot?
As a sidenote I’d like to point out that this poll is two days late, I have had horrendous flu and will be spamming you all again shortly.
“People I know in-game always call me guildhopper. Every guild I join seems to want too much from me, like being extra polite to their members even if they’re idiots.” – Anonymous
“I wouldn’t consider myself a guildhopper, though I have been in quite a few guilds. It all depends how settled I feel there.” – Clbull
“I actually shy away from joining guilds. There’s too much pressure to be social when you don’t feel like it, and since the patch there’s even less reason to bother.” – Filandria
