No matter what the level of the player, trains seem to form a kind of universal connection point. But the fact that there are norms regarding what to do in a train situation also gives the community methods for evaluating the player who caused the problem. Starting trains is a not infrequent method of “griefing” other players (causing havoc), and groups of players often decide fairly quickly, sometimes through public debate, whether or not a train was unintentional but excusable, unintentional but “dumb” (caused by poor judgment and probably avoidable), or intentional and therefore a grievance.
For example, when fighting the Sleeper—a particularly tough mob that would only appear once in the game—was first successfully undertaken on a server, other players cheered the guild who accomplished it. Indeed, in one case a player argued that by taking on difficult new mobs, high-level guilds help out the entire server: They should be given a medal and a monument for being DIFFERENT! . Probably one of the only top flight guilds server wide going a different road and doing something original.
Groups, for example, are formal collections in which people, once joined together, can monitor each other, use a private chat channel, and all gain experience points based on teamwork. The formal group in EQ also has a leader who can invite and disband members. At the guild level people are now able to bring up a tool that allows them to see all the members of their association and where they are in the world. All guild members share a “tag” on their name identifying their guild affiliation. Guilds also have automatic private-chat channels and can set “messages of the day”—broadcast messages that all guild members see when logging in.
