Over the weekend, Cameron Dunn, Studio Tech Director of ArenaNet had an update for the guilds out there that are still experiencing issues as a result of a bug in Guild Wars 2′s guild leadership system:
First of all I want to apologize for the radio silence on this issue. I should have kept everyone up to date with our progress in tracking this down, and sadly I didn’t. I apologize.
However, I have some good news. We are pretty sure that we’ve found and fixed the bug with guild leadership. The fix will be going out in the next build.
I can’t officially tell you when the next build is, but let’s just say that you don’t have to wait very long from this point.
Once this bug is fixed, hopefully both the entirely missing guilds and the guild permissions problem will be things of the past. We also have a solution in the works for restoring missing influence, but that’s something the community team can tell you more about as it becomes official.
Apologies again, and I can’t wait to get this next build out and make everyone’s experience better!
Good news on a fix coming for this long-standing issue.
