I've said this multiple times and in various places, but after seeing that yesterday's "Dark Side Territory Battle - Geonosis Qualification Requirements" announcement had the word guild 16 times (you can check it), I think CG must be realizing how important guilds are. I mean, they're the main reason a big chunk of the player base stuck to the game after the Revans fiascos, for example. Being part of a team makes the game much more fun.
And, at the same time, CG has been asking more and more from guilds. Most of the new content is guild-directed, and cannot be played unless you are in one. So guilds are not even optional anymore. Even if you are a casual player.
So, please, CG, give something back to those guilds.
-Raise the donation cap!
-Make ALL GEAR donatable
-Make it possible to claim your donations even if they aren't fulfilled (sometimes you just need one piece but you need it now)
Those are givens. But I'll go further:
-Make ALL CURRENCIES donatable! Let us help each other with our farmings
-Allow us to donate character shards!! (There should be a choice "Which shard do you want converted and which do you want keep" in the store)
You know guilds are what move this game forward. Allow us to move with the game.
