Three castles, three spots for a custom guild logo, and a single evening to achieve victory. Given the reward, the participation in the last event of this part of the Beta was as high as anticipated and a lot of different alliances and guilds tried their luck. Yet, in the end, only three guilds could win!
After losing Morfe Castle (more on that later), Echo of Silence was able to secure the castle in Scoat Fell by ripping it out of the hands of Luna Prima with a well-timed attack. Roughly 40 minutes before the end of the event the deal was sealed.
“The event went well for us, our main goal was to just get as many fights as possible rather than directly aiming for a logo,” Oldbear of Echo of Silence starts. “Even while outnumbered significantly in certain fights we fought nearly everybody involved in the event and we are glad we managed to get so much action over the four hours we spent roaming around and we are proud of all our 50 members that stayed to fight against the odds. Our only regret is not having enough time to cross the map to assist Valhalla with their own fight, as they were holding off outnumbered as well.”
On the other side of the continent, Valhalla and KDS fought a close battle for the reign of Steamspittle Steppe Castle. The fight was decided in the very last seconds of the event and KDS emerged victoriously. Klien, raid leader of KDS, elaborates: “Ever since the announcement of the event we tried to get all our members back into the game for it. The fight was really close as Valhalla did great in defending the castle but thanks to the TY alliance, Haus Stark, and Bravate we were able to achieve victory. We highly appreciate the support we received from everybody that help us in securing our logo!”
The third castle in this event was claimed by SayMyName. The TY alliance, which SayMyName is part of, started preparing for the event the moment it was announced. They set their eyes on denying Echo of Silence the Morfe Forest castle while improving their own open world synergy as an alliance.
Saymeth, the leader of SayMyName, gives some insight into their plan: “On the siege day, we grouped up four hours prior to the end of the event in front of Morfe Forest castle. With a lot of back and forth, we managed to take the castle from Echo of Silence and prevented them from retaking it several times. The final result was four out of five won battles against them and once they realized they couldn’t take back their home castle they went off to take Scoat Fell castle instead.”
After they had secured their own castle, SayMyName and the TY alliance went off to deny the EoS alliance another guild logo by supporting KDS in taking the Steamspittle Steppe Castle from Valhalla.
