Summit1g on WoW Classic guilds and why players shouldn’t worry about the ‘meta’

Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar has reached out to World of Warcraft players with some advice about how to get into guilds, and it certainly goes against some suggestions from the game’s online community.

The Twitch streamer, who has over 3.8 million followers on the platform, has been playing the popular multiplayer game for a number of weeks and has found himself being constantly advised to make decisions by members of his chat.

However, on June 16 the former CS:GO streamer explained why players should not choose to play with a character they don’t like, just because a guild is looking for somebody to play a role in their team.

Blizzard EntertainmentGuilds give World of Warcraft a social aspect by allowing players to group and raid much easier.

“Right, not every single guild is looking for top, top, top, top D or DPS,” summit said during his June 16 livestream. “Not every single guild is going to be like ‘yeah, fuck Clothies let’s just bring a fuckload of Warriors and Rogues.’ Not every guild is going to do that. Those are the fucking try hard guilds. Get in a guild to have a good time.

“Do whatever the fuck you want,” he added. “This whole stupid meta in WoW Classic is dumb as fuck. Play what you want. You don’t want to go engineering, God forbid? Don’t go fucking engineering.”

For those who aren’t aware, the guild feature allows players the opportunity to come together and complete common objectives as a unit. Some of these groups are, admittedly, looking for specific people to join them on their quests, but as summit explains, there’s not really a need to play with a character you’re not comfortable playing with.

Yet, perhaps working with one that you enjoy, and sticking with it, may give you a good chance of linking up with others in-game too. At least, that’s what he’s been doing anyway, despite having some frustrations with Rogue.

Whether or not many of summit’s viewers will take his advice on board remains to be seen, but he’s always been a streamer that will play games he wants to play and, clearly, he’s taken the same attitude with character selection on WoW.
