Proposal Overview Guild Land with member housing and activities
Goal of Proposal Offer a new Guild Upgrade to unlock Guild Land. Once unlock
Offer different Size of lands you can research (for different guild size/budget)
Offer Different Type of lands, so we get the feeling we have our own.
Proposal Functionality Create a new Category for Guild Land upgrades Using Guild Merits and Influence, the guild unlocks Guild Land (Level I). Once unlocked, you can research one of three size of land (You can upgrade to the bigger map by paying cost-smaller map cost)
Big - Size of a full map
Normal - Half the Size
Small - Quarter of the Size
Once the new map becomes active, the guild leader has the option to select a "theme" out of a few, once he does, the map is generated.
A new map grants the guild a map instance with their own Castle/Manor/Estate. A new button is available from the guild menu to teleport to this map.
Should be customizable with stuff you were able to achieve as a guild (new type of achievements)
Able to research commodities like crafting, guild bank, vendors, etc.
Security on a granualar level
Allied guilds can be invited to the map
Guild Land (Level 2)
Unlock Land Lot 1-25 (small)
Unlock Land Lot 26-50(small)
Unlock Land Lot 51-150(Medium)
Unlock Land Lot 151-250 (Large)
These land lots would be use by guild members to build pre-determined house from a list. These houses would be paid/built using guild commendation. Why? Well it shows they've been active with the guild, doing missions and such for a while. These houses would also have a monthly rent, something cheap, like 1g per month. That 1g would go towards the guild treasury, and it's also a nice system to see if players become inactive. If you haven't paid after a second month, the house is vacated/destroyed. Items are sent via mail in a bag to the old owner of the house, and someone else can take that plot of land.
Should be customizable, able to show titles in form of trophies or objects inside your house.
Using a mix of guild commendation and Laurels, you should be able to unlock your own Waypoint(added to the hero panel), Personal Bank, and show the crafting tables of your active profession.
You should be able to set permission on who can enter your house and also different options for more granular security.
Guild Land (Level 3)
Unlock Guild Keg Brawl
Unlock Guild Sanctum Sprint
Unlock Guild Southsun Survival
Unlock Guild Crab Toss
Right now activities can't be played as a group, but what if Guilds could start them. Not only start them, but if you research them, they'd be available in your map instance, for all(guild members) to see? Imagine having keg brawl tournaments, with those not playing, watching the game from the side.
Create team before starting the activities
Only start when everyone is ready
Schedule activities/tournaments on the new guild Calendar
We could even push this further, instead of having to use guild Commendation and other currency to build houses. What if there was a forest, a mine, some farms, and you'd need to gather stuff, bring them back to the castle to be processed, and then it could be use to build houses and such? Make the guild work for their stuff, as a team.
What if we have an (infinite) dungeon inside this instance, so the guild can go deeper and deeper as a team and gather rare minerals for more stuff within their guild instance.
Associated Risks Number one risk for Guild Halls and all of the above, is that it will move a big portion of the population to these instances.
