I am seeing a lot of people shy away from being in guilds and also larger guilds killing smaller guilds by soaking up all the players. It is very hard to build your stronghold when the currency needed is from very old mods and by taking that into account it makes for a huge problem because strongholds never regularly was updated with each passing mod and thus all the gear became irrelevant and people didn't want to do anything to help the guilds anymore.
Where if with every mod the stronghold should have been updated to this would have kept people coming back and putting forth effort to build it. Now people just make guilds to use as extra banks because it is a lot cheaper than buying zen and purchasing bank slots. I propose adding currency from all the mods that have been released since strongholds was released to relieve strain on smaller guilds also to add a vendor to sell vouchers to donate to your stronghold by using stronghold marks to purchase these ACCOUNT bound vouchers also making it easier for smaller guilds to progress and it would give people more reasons to grind an donate for marks.
As of right now stronghold boons are locked behind very very long builds for smaller guilds and people shouldn't be forced to join large guilds if they don't want.
Also before anyone starts complaining about the voucher system you can still sell the ones you acquire from boxes too because there will be people who buy them either because they ran out of marks and need to just a small bit of donations and they don't want to wait or they don't want to grind at all and just prefer to spend diamonds to get them.
This is for those guilds with basically less than 50 people in it really or thos 15-20gh who have had a huge drop off in player leaving the game and need extra help to keep growing.
