I have submitted my application, thanks for the opportunity.
Just opening doors..
Been in Iron Bank of Albion for a bit over a week now and I must say it has been a really vigorous experience so far. Leadership is great and friendly. I know some people might think that it is annoying to have to apply by a website with questions etc. But behind all that there is a fantastic guild with great people who all strife to one common goal. If you even slightly consider to apply, don't hesitate.
Out of curiosity, if you are modeling your guild after the Iron Bank, will you be loaning money (silver or even gold)? Will you remain neutral, meanwhile, indirectly financing wars and other political plays?
I'm wondering if a player guild could actually be economically dominant, unless it has hundreds of members and most if not all are playing Market PVP.
I'm hopeful Iron Bank is more unique than a run-of-the-mill guild that plays the game the same as nearly everyone else.
I'm wondering if guilds at some point could actually be in control of billions, with a B, of silver in liquid assets and that could become the true power of the game.
I remember back in EvE when it took 3 months to have 10 million isk, but 10 years later players were able to be billionaires in the same amount of time.
Albion's markets are regional, so it might not be that difficult for a guild with enough silver to manipulate and then dominate those local markets.
