The Demographics of Guilds
The majority of players have someone in their guild that they know in RL, whether this is a friend, a colleague, a family member, or a romantic partner. The most common categories were friends (59%) and romantic partners (35%).
In fact, the majority of players (59%) joined guilds where there was someone they knew in RL (i.e., before they joined the guild). This also lends support to data we've seen elsewhere that MMOs play a role in maintaining RL social connections.
