On December 2, 2011 the Pre-Launch Guild Program came to a close. One of the great things about the program was it gave guild leaders and guild seekers some great tools for meeting up. Players had the ability to create guilds, manage guild ranks, accept members, as well as search for guilds based on an extensive set of criteria.
Once created each guild was given a space on the site with public and private forums, and guild leaders had the ability to moderate those forums. BioWare allowed players to do on their site things that could only be accomplished through in-game functions and third-party guild hosting sites.
Now that the Pre-Launch Guild Program is closed, all of the features that were part of the Guild Headquarters site are now gone. The guild sites and forums remain, but not for long. According to the official Guilds FAQ, “approximately 2 weeks after the official release of the game (Dec 20, 2011), the Guild Headquarters will be removed from the web.”
