Albion Online War Report #9 Details
For the ever squabbling guilds of Albion, it seems to that those guilds forever at war with each other and now, By renewing Faye, the wars can come to the Royal Lands as well. After many unlimited battles as well as attacks between the two factions of the SNOW and CDC alliances, seemingly, the stalemate has been broken. With regard to the borders between Mercenarios (SNOW) and KDS (CDC) have been moved back and forth almost every night with neither side being albe to hold on to their victories.
Now, though, it appears there has been a breakthrough. The CDC alliance has rallied themselves and found victories at the highly contested castle fights in the Creag Eyach territory for the past two consecutive weeks. In order to claim the castle and the valuable relic coffer that spawns there, they successfully saw off a seemingly weakened SNOW alliance as well as defeating a contingent from Echo of Silence during the last encounter.
The other major player in the region, Envy, did not attempt to show in any great numbers, however a small roaming band of them came along with the intention to pick off some isolated players travelling to the area. There were reports that The Gentlemen also travelled very far north from their home plot in order to get some action and blockaded one of the entrances to the zone.
Unlike the previous week where the battle for the castle continued on long after the relic coffer spawned, everything was over 30 minutes in advance. There was even enough time for the CDC alliance to stop for a photo shoot to commemorate their success.
In the days following the castle fight, the once highly contested Siege Camps were left open for the CDC. There was little SNOW presence which indicates their focus may have been elsewhere, such as the area around Welcoming Shadows and the territories further west that is held by the Dread Pirate Roberts (SNOW) as Envy has been incredibly active there. This led to the CDC alliance having control of where the battles were fought and ultimately meant they gained an edge over their long-term rivals in the area.
Things have finally quietened down. At present, both Mercenarios as well as KDS being rather passive in regard to conflicts fought between each other. Perhaps to both sides looking to contest the heavy presence in the area, nonetheless, once this mutual opponent is pushed back, we will able to see fighting once more.
