What happens when the Leader leaves the Guild/Team?

When the Guild or Team leader leaves, whichever player was part of the Guild or Team for the longest period of time takes over leadership. It is not based on status or rank within the Guild or Team.

Ex: even if the longest standing member in the Guild is an Initiate it will be this player who resumes leadership if the previous leader decides to leave.

If there are no other players in the Guild or Team when the leader leaves, that Guild or Team is then disbanded and the Name and Tag become available again.
