On server 1, it's not that rare. Many guilds have inactive leaders and no champions or officers or have champions and officers who won't take leadership. Veterans or regular members who might be willing just can't. Players park in inactive guilds because they are tired of guessing wrong about a guild or because they are frustrated with the actual search (non-)process provided by the game itself.
It is easy to say to move to a new guild, but difficult to move to one that actually fits since there is really no way to check out a guild until you join it. At least let searching players view the guild wall and observe guild chat for 20 seconds. Double the size of the motto field. Post guild war rankings on the profile page along with a temple completion rate. These would make moving on a lot easier and much more successful.
