Modification: Hide Guild Tag Function

Recommended Posts

This is a quality of life suggestion that I believe could be easily implemented by the Star Wars the Old Republic team at BIO-WARE.

Currently there is an option in game to hide guild name-plates (this is under preferences: name-plates) which is a somewhat helpful feature. However this function hides ALL guild name tags for ALL players that you can see (including ones own guild tag).

I propose that this function be modified by the developers so that the player may also select to hide their OWN guild tag from other players.

This would work in the same way as displaying (or not displaying) titles next to ones character name.

The end result would be other people would be unable to see what guild you were in if you chose not disclose that information. If one wished to display their guild name they could still do so (same as where we are now).

 

Why you might ask, is this necessary? Well, for the majority of us we did not choose the name of the guild that we currently inhabit. That was decided a long time ago by the four founding members. In some cases we join a guild only to have the guild name changed at a later date to something less desirable (from our own point of view). Some players are unhappy about the new name but they do not wish to leave on the account of their friends within the guild. This is just one example of how this proposed modification could be beneficial.

 

Not sure how to end this post. Here's a smiley?:o

My need to know a griefer's guild to report them to their guildmaster outweighs your comfort with the name.

 

I agree with this.. When they allow special characters in names, sometimes it is difficult to differentiate and the guild name is essential.

You know who all he Guildmasters are?

 

I have a couple thoughts on the OP's subject. I don't join guilds with names I don't like. They might be full of good people, but I don't want to display some stupid name. Even if you didn't display the guild name, I would imagine it would show up in player searches. So if you're really actually asking for complete anonymity and using other reasons to support it. you'd better consider all the factors.

 

You could always offer to buy your guild a name change if it's stupid.

Errr, no, what an absurd idea to begin with. The dumb possibility to be in more than one guild already reduces the honesty in this game to almost non existent, hiding guild tags would even add to it if that is even possible.

I also don't want people in my guild who are ashamed wearing our tag AND I want to know if people are in a guild and in which one in many situations. I see not one single sense making point where someone could come up with such an idea, really. You shoud try to send an application to Bioware, they sure are looking for people who don't think things through thoroughly. :-)

 

While we are at it: I would love to have a limit of guild memberships to one per faction. That would bring so much more integrity and honesty into the game with almost no effort. And people would have to make a stand and a mature decision and can't be such pathetic opportunists like many sadly are.

I for one would love this, it is SO frustrating having awful guild names constantly popping up on my screen whenever I go to another area. Just why? Most of the names are vulgar and offensive too which really spoils the game imo.

 

This request isn't what you're asking for. You want to hide the conquest banner. OP wants to be able to be a part of a guild but not make that membership known to others.
