What is a Guild?
On World of Warcraft, a guild is an organization of players who have joined together using an in game function that allows them to share a private chat channel, have a tag under their names, and access to a variety of resources a guild bank, and special in game perks like a faster hearthstone cooldown, and cosmetic perks like guild tabards, shirts, cloaks, and banners.
There are four things people do in World of Warcraft: We socialize, we roleplay, we tackle challenges created by the game environment, sometimes in groups, and we also face off against other players, sometimes alone or in groups. Guilds serve as a way to network with players that share common goals.
Sometimes multiple players without a shared guild membership band together in channels or in non-guild organizations.

Alliance & Horde Categories
A group may be an alliance of individual guilds, a player-run town, a family, or simply a guild that, for their own reasons, doesn't choose to use the official in-game guild system (perhaps they're a batch of roleplayers that prefer to remain in a raiding guild). There is no real classification that separates a "group" from a "guild", though all in-game guilds should be listed under the Guilds category.
