Can’t believe I haven’t done a post on this before.
So, my Officer role in Unemployed is to be Events Officer. I organize all guild events that have nothing to do with raiding/pvp/instances, so basically everything that doesn’t really involve game play.
It’s been a while since I’ve held any events, since everyone is pretty caught up and busy with Wrath of the Lich King, but I’ve had a good number in the past. If you are in a guild who likes to do stuff together other than raiding, I’d recommend some of these ideas to try to bring people together. Most of these have been held by Unemployed already, but a few of them are ideas I’ve had in the works for some time now, just waiting for the right time.
Events like these are a great way to get people together in a fun situation – since raiding can get pretty stressful and full of tension, doing some just for fun activities can be a great way to get everyone playing nice and remembering that everyone is on the same side.
So starting next week, I plan to have a series on guild event ideas that I’ve tried or hope to try someday. I hope this can find it’s way to other Guild Event Co-ordinators out there!
