# 5 Welcome to the mmo Guild Club!

Guilds traditionally have been the lifeblood mechansim for player retention in mmos if the content and direction of developpment failed expectations. If they were not properly supported they also became the "mass exodus" achilles heel of mmos as well.

Given that friendships created within these communities can last throughout the life span of the game and move onto new games etc; they are highly rewarding just on that count alone.

Finding a community that suits you both in what you can contribute and what you want out of it is half the fun. When you find the right community, you'll wonder why you stayed "solo" for so long, having missed a whole new world of gaming benefit that mmos were initially designed for.

Enjoy your new community Commadore Bob
