Who says nice guys finish last? Fricks may be known primarily as an overall fun and positive-vibes guild, but they can still bring the heat when needed. They reached Crystal ranking in the second GvG season, finishing in eighth place overall, and are part of the resurgent POWER alliance that was recently formed by current season leaders Team Casualty. (See here for more on the POWER saga.)
Tell us about your guild. What sort of activities do you focus on? What sort of members are you looking for?
Fricks was founded on launch day by Veetus. The Filthy Casuals merged into Fricks several months later, and today Fricks are a very solid guild in the world of Albion. Fricks as a guild are all about community. We like to promote a wholesome and fun environment for our members and we feel we do a good job of that. Our focus is definitely PvP, but we experience every facet the world of Albion has to offer.
If you want to have a positive player environment, love to say “Fricks are recruiting” and want to experience a lot of PvP activities, Fricks are probably a great fit for you.
Where is your guild primarily located? What regions in Albion do you focus on?
We are based out of Sunlit at the moment, located in Northwest Mercia. We are very much a team. Being a part of a POWERful (see what I did there?) alliance has Fricks going wherever the alliance needs us. Usually that is in Cumbria or Mercia, which is nice because that’s close to home for us.
Do you have any particular rivalries or ongoing quarrels with other guilds?
This tends to change from season to season. Last season, I would say it was Conflict, as we had countless open-world fights with them over Anglia castles. This season, it’s more of a conglomerate of guilds, most stemming from the broader alliance between OOF and POE.
What were some of your most memorable battles/activities?
Most definitely this skirmish against the EGO alliance, battling over the Creag Rudd castle. Which was beautifully showcased in this video that Flufferpope put together:
What does your guild do for fun?
We have our own songs. (Full album coming soon.) We roleplay from time to time. We form gank parties. We dungeon dive. We do faction warfare. We make memories and memes and even freestyle rap in Discord.
What is your guild's approach to the game? Do you have any sort of overarching philosophy?
Being uplifting and respectful and having fun is how I approach the guild, and I think most of our members feel the same way. I think the fun will be had if all the other things are in place first. All you need is love!
What are your goals for the future? What is your ultimate goal in the world of Albion?
It’s interesting to me that we started out as “just” a Twitch-based community guild, but over time we grew into a strong end-game guild joining hands with meaningful alliances and making a splash in the game. Our goals are to to continue doing what we’ve been doing and creating content for our members – though I think we could be creating even more content like in-guild events with in-game contributions/raffles and loot as rewards. Our end-game goal is to simply have a great time playing Albion Online.
