A Guild System in Destiny?

Would you like to have a guild system in Destiny? This is a list of various ideas that could be used in Destiny's guild system. My (and those who contributed to this thread) basic idea of a guild system would include: [b]Corporate Glimmer Fund[/b] - Anyone in a guild could give to a clan fund that would let the clan have special weapons marked with their emblems, colors and faction logo. The leaders of the clan would invest it in weapons, armor and anything else a clan could buy. The Glimmer in the fund would be able to be invested into any weapon or armor using the clan trading system. Once you bought using the trade post, you could keep it for yourself or send it to the clan's armories. All weapons would be returned to the armories of the guild once the player was done using it in his/her gaming session if it was owned by the guild. >>[b]Armor & Weapon locks EDIT:[/b] Weapons and armor would be level unlocked like a level 20 weapon for a level 20 guardian. They'd be locked till your guardian was the correct rank and then you could use it if you wanted. [b]Bases[/b] - This would be a base that would store the clan's armor, clan starships and weapons. A place where everyone could gather to discuss clan events, etc. & a place where you could store your personal ships, locked where only you can use it of course. >>[b]TRADING POST:[/b] Also somewhere in your guild/clan base (thanks to Exorf for the idea) would be a clan trading system that you could use to trade with others in your guild, other guilds, and possibly other guardians in the Last City. >>[b]HANGAR:[/b] Since we know one cannot fight in space battles, if guilds/clans could have clan battleships (idea by Colonel Akoli) that would be large enough for every member's starship then it might be used for a cutscene leading into a raid or public event. [b]Squads[/b] - A squad of six with a leader, a second in command and 4 members. Looks like we already have a squad of six from the first Destiny ViDoc, but had to throw this in. [b]Colors[/b] - The clan could choose it's colors that would be used for every weapon and piece of armor it owned. [b]Faction[/b] - The clan would be allowed the option of being dedicated to a certain faction, so if there were faction battles, they would be able to play together as a clan. Each member could also have a private allegiance to a faction when they were not playing with the whole clan in a faction event, clan raid or something else. [b]Clan Logo/Emblem[/b] - The leader(s) might be able to choose an emblem out of many choices (like H2, H3, HReach). The colors chosen as the clan's colors would be used on the logo of the clan which would be printed on all weapons, armor and any other property of the clan. The Tower might be one of the better places to put this as it seems to be the center of trade, hangars for your ship, & maybe an armory or two. Maybe Bungie could also have a watered down version of this for fireteams where you could have a fireteam with a certain faction selected, a place to meet at the city and a hangar for all three of you to park your personal ships. And before you start wondering, I'm not a WoW player. Remember this is an idea thread, so if you think of something, I'll add it to this thread and you get the credit for it. This isn't necessarily what Bungie will do, but it's nice to think about till the launch of Destiny.

  • Wait...didn't Bungie say this would be in the game just before they launched it ? I'm new in Destiny so this is disappointing. Maybe I assumed it had this...wth I never saw Bungie reply on any thread that actually had ideas that would really improve the game for all. So much for hearing us...all they've been doing is bug fixes and nerfing. But perhaps that's all right ,I don't know...my philosophy is "I don't know" ,I'm just trying to stimulate a debate.

  • Who didn't like guild perks in WOW? I don't see why they wouldnt put something like that in the game.

    • A guild hall would be cool. Like certain high level raids offer trophies of sorts to decorate your clan hall with to show your achievements.

    • i like the idea of it all, but it would need loads of tweaking. i was dissapointed with the lack of certain features like guild halls in guild wars 2, but i find that the clan halls in warframe would make a great template for something like that

      • I don't think guild houses and whatnot will be a thing, but guilds definitely will. Bungie was a part of the "pants guild" if you remember.

            • I can't say I really like this idea!!!!!! I always look at a game as a challenge you choose your path you strive to achieve the games objectives with what YOU have obtained during the game..... This sharing of assets will give players an unfair advantage on levels that are hard for them as there just go back to there Guild Hall select the items they think they will need to beat the level & blast through it like a DREADNOUGHT!!!!!!. Where as they should of been finding ways to beat it with the equipment they have..

              • Absolutely. The more ownership people have in a community of people (even as small as six), the more investment they have in the game. If Destiny really wants to write the book on customization and investment, they need to do things like this.

              • I absolutely love this idea. I think this should be in the world somewhere. Each large clan has their own little base of operations in Last City and have a system like the one you have described. This would, honestly, be perfect for my Regiment.

                • Let me get this straight is this a guild that is over all the guilds or is this just a new type of guild....cuz it would be cool if there was an overarching guild that kept everything in check for all the guilds
