Looking for Guild Defiance, FFXIV, GW2, and more
Wow. When I first pitched the idea for this column, I figured we'd get a bit of interest, but I never imagined we'd get as swamped as we did. It seems that a lot of you out there are really in need of a good guild!

For this first "real" week of the column, I'm going to go ahead and list every submission we received so far because I think everyone should get their info out there, and the sooner the better. If you're a guild leader and you find someone in this list who interests you, just send me an email showing that person's submission at shawn@massively.com with the subject line "LFM - (game name)" and I will pass along the contact info. And most importantly, if you find a guild or guildie through the column, let us know!

And now, the list!

There were some great suggestions in the comments of last week's post, so keep those coming, too. If you'd like to include any additional info for these submissions (like server, goals, or what you're looking for in a guild), go ahead and add them in.

I would be willing to start and lead a new guild based on later-than-usual raid times.
