GUILD means A Group Of Gamers in an online gaming context.

A GUILD is a group of gamers who form a team to compete against others in MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games).

Most GUILDs are focused on a specific game, but some play together in various games. GUILDs may be formal features of a game, but many come together through play.

In most other types of online games (i.e., those that are not MMORPG), GUILDs are known as CLANs.
