Albion Online - Chicken Kiss And Their Rivals

# Chicken Kiss Battles WarLegend at Raven Rock. Non-Aggression Pact declared with Money Guild.

Chicken Kiss have established a name for themselves during Closed Beta, standing as a firm stakeholder in the West. However, immediate sources from the guild confirm that sporadic battles have been taking place over the past few weeks. Kyljys, the War Master of Chicken Kiss, provided us with a first-hand glimpse of their most recent skirmishes against their rivals.

“Our main rivals at the moment are certainly WarLegend and Money Guild. We have had a number of encounters in the open world, typically resulting in a large-scale battle. Overall, the fights have been really entertaining back-and-forth battles. Simply put, you win some, you lose some,” Kyljys explained.

Apparently, these large scale battles have been cultivated in attempts to sustain control over crucial real-estate in the world. Namely castles, which provide boons for any guild in the form of currency.

Kyljys: “We have fought over the castles in Raven Rock and Redwood Redoubt against WarLegend. At the moment, WarLegend has control over them, but I do believe we will have the upper hand very soon.”

We asked him how exactly they would gain control of the situation and if they had any unspoken alliances that would support Chicken Kiss in the endeavor. His response was firm. “We haven’t been in an alliance for a while because we simply feel that we don’t really need one.”

Although they currently aren’t adopting any support in the form of an alliance, Chicken Kiss has been in numerous alliances in the past for a variety of reasons.

“The most recent alliance we were in was the SSS alliance, which included Echo of Silence, The Covenant and Valhalla. The goal for the alliance was to control the black zones, and push into Festerfoss. Overall, we succeeded pretty well; we pushed Money Guild into Festerfoss and meanwhile, our allies controlled the rest of the black zones in the West.”

Despite Chicken Kiss no longer being part of the alliance, they set out to show exactly what the guild was capable of and achieved their goal in that regard. They have not only managed to break into Festerfoss, but have also proven they can compete in the top Guilds vs. Guild battles.

In more recent news, Chicken Kiss and Money Guild have come to terms with one another, and have derived a stringent non-aggression pact in order to direct their goals elsewhere.

“Even though we fight Money Guild almost every day in the open world, we are currently in a non-aggression pact in regards to sending Guild vs. Guild attacks towards one another.”

We asked Kyljys for a bit more clarification on the matter.

“The non-aggression pact was formed after a number of days of GvGing in Festerfoss. We quickly realized that this war would lead nowhere, considering it is pretty much impossible to take a building plot with 40 defender bonus, if the battling teams are equal in terms of skill,” he explained.

Clearly busy with his duties as War Master, Kyljys was cut short on time for our dialogue. We asked him one final question before letting him get back into the action. What does the near future hold for Chicken Kiss?

“I think the goal we have set out for ourselves can really be described in one word: Improve. Our main goal for now is just to continue focusing on developing our Guild vs. Guild teams.”

Without much else to explain, Kyljys was adamant that Chicken Kiss has been, and will continue to conquer their objectives.

“The focal point of the guild for this beta has been to compete with the best GvG teams on the server. I think we have succeeded in that regard fairly well. At the very least, the French wing of Chicken Kiss has. Now, we just have to make the other wings of Chicken Kiss just as capable and we’ll be as strong as ever,” Kyljys concluded the interview.

# Battle ensues in Fungal Marsh!

Prime (formerly known as Money Guild) is no stranger to territory warfare, as they have been one of the dominant forces during Closed Beta. In fact, they are one of the few guilds to hold and maintain real-estate on both the Eastern and Western continent of Albion.

They are currently in two-way contest for control over the black zones on the Eastern Continent, pitted against rival guild Stardust. The zones in question? Fungal Marsh, Wart River and Headsman’s Haunt. Fungal Marsh being a rather valuable black zone to control, with the latter two being red zones with direct line of attack into the black territory. If Stardust does manage to breach into Fungal Marsh and take control over the zone, Prime’s ally Red Army will surely prepare a counter. Red Army is the largest stakeholder on the East, essentially meaning Stardust will have their work cut out for them even if successful in the upcoming days.

A total of four Guild vs. Guild battles are scheduled to take place, assuredly shifting the control over the area in favor of one guild or another. In the coming weeks, the area may witness an entire shift in control, so this is certainly a GvG hotspot to keep an eye on. The image depicted above displays the current state of affairs taking place in Fungal Marsh and the vicinity.
