This is the information so far (GW2 Wiki) concerning how guilds will operate for GW2.

Guilds are formal groupings of players. Guilds will be available to players from near the start of the game, will not be (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild)racially (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Playable_races)-exclusive, and you may join as many guilds as you would like per account. When a character logs in, it will be able to choose which guild it would like to represent. A character can also switch which guild they are currently representing through the interface without having to log out, but they can only gain influence for the guild that they currently represent. (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild)[2] (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild#cite_note-1) While representing that guild you will appear active on the guild roster and have access to the guild chat. Guild membership will also allow greater out-of-group interactivity, with guild members being easily located on a map, current activities visible on the guild roster, and other ways to keep track of fellow guildmates. (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild)[3] (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild#cite_note-2)
Guilds will be able to work towards (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild)guild achievements (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/index.php?title=Guild_achievement&action=edit&redlink=1). As guilds do things together in the world, they earn influence. Guilds are able to spend influence on many things such as guild storage, a calendar, and experience flags. Guilds are also able to claim (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild)keeps (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Keep) in (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild)WvW (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/World_versus_World). They will be able to fly their guild flag from the keep and use influence to upgrade their keep, fortifying it against attacks. (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild)[4] (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild#cite_note-3)

Even though guilds in mechanics will not be racially-exclusive, there could still be the chance for those wanting race-exclusive guilds (requiring members to only play for that guild on a given race); will see how everything turns out in the end. So far I feel the current forum rules should still cover what is given here concerning Guilds in GW2, whether there will be Alliances is yet to be seen. As more information gets released, I would imagine some changes to how this forum will work.


Guilds (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Guild)
Will I be able to reserve my Guild Wars guild's name?
We don't know.
Will my account be able to join multiple guilds? Yes. Each character will optionally be able to join a different guild.[22] (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Frequently_Asked_Questions#cite_note-incGamers-21) All characters from the same account in a guild will show as a single member. If one character belongs to a guild no further invitations are required to add more characters to the guild.[26] (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Frequently_Asked_Questions#cite_note-25).
Are any features being added to support guild-based activities in-game? There will be guild achievements added and guilds may hold keeps in World versus World. There will be a guild calendar and you can participate in guild chat from a web browser.[22] (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Frequently_Asked_Questions#cite_note-incGamers-21)
Will guilds be segregated by character race? No. Guilds will be restricted by race only if the leadership chooses to restrict it.
Will we be able to create an alliance with our guild? We don't know.
How many members can join a guild? Higher limit than in the previous Guild Wars, up to no limit.[27] (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Frequently_Asked_Questions#cite_note-26)
Will guilds have a Leader, Officer, Member ranking that limits their guild-management options? We don't know yet.
Will guilds have a way to recruit without using chat channels? We don't know.
Will there be guild halls? Guild halls will be released sometime after the game has launched. [28] (http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Frequently_Asked_Questions#cite_note-27)

Multiple guilds for each character?? Weird...

I wonder if Alliances are gone.

07-02-2012, 11:08
I really hope not. We have quite a few "famous" GW1 alliances, and would be a total shame if they could not have in-game support in GW2. I really doubt ANet would get rid of that, rather successful, element from GW1 though.

Agreed; I'd be crushed if the GWO alliance couldn't resurface :( Though, I guess we could all combine to a GWO guild...

Fae's blog on the beta Guild info!

No word on alliances.

21-02-2012, 00:03
Nope, nada. TBH, I'm kind of guessing they'll come after launch. But hey, they could surprise us.
