Blizzard introduces guild mentoring program
Blizzard has introduced a guild mentoring program, an initiative hope to steer more players into guild involvement. On a set of selected realms on Battle.net, one guild of each faction will become a mentoring guild that will pull new players into the world of guilds.
The World of Warcraft is huge and with the upcoming add-on, which seems to be shipped soon, the community in Azeroth will grow once again.
- "Azeroth needs more heroes to rise through the ranks and your guild can help. We’re looking for a few good guilds to volunteer for the new Guild Mentoring Program. Guilds participating in the program will take part in identifying new players within selected realms, offering to invite them into the guild, and teaching them the ways of Azeroth as they level and reach the end game content," was announced yesterday.
Guild leaders are to submit an application to community-EN@blizzard.com with detailed guild information. The guild leader and recruitment officers that participate in the program will receive MVP status on the forums as well as recognition for their guild as being participants in the program.
The program is meant to run for a period of three months.
Azeroth -- It’s a land of turmoil, harsh and unyielding for heroes of the Horde and the Alliance as they struggle against enemies from within and without. For those stepping forth for the first time into this implacable realm, life can seem overwhelming, but surviving in this hostile environment is not insurmountable with a little help. Will your band of brothers and sisters, heroes and mentors, heed your call for aid?
