They are paying customers , they have the right to keep their names.
For situations like this there are pieces of code that prevent 2 guild with the same name on the save server.
I work in this industry and seeing something like this makes me sick. I hope Trion sorts this out. That GM should be unemployed... period.
That is a horrible story. What a load of bullcrap if it's true.
Sorry OP, I feel for ya.
I almost felt sorry for you then I found out the guild name. Now I don't care.
Just have the online support team change your guild name back to whatever it was and add a title in front of it so it won't match the other guild. Something like " The famed [insert guild name]" or anything flashy enough.

It doesn't matter if the other guild had 10000 players and you have 1. You had created the guild name first on the server. They came to your server later and totally screwed you over.
There is probably something in teh TOS that covers the co-opting of names of notable groups. They aren't celebrities, but they are known in mmo circles.
Fire GM Giant IMO..

This doesn't really add up, Lotham was the Goon Squad server in beta. So you took their name on the server they played on in beta and expected to keep it?
Why would you want to have the same name as a guild known to be the biggest ******bags in the mmo community?
Not to mention they universally suck at pvp.
I think this whole thing was staged by Goons for publicity and as a cry for attention.
