Tell us about your guild. What sort of activities do you focus on? What sort of members are you looking for?
BFG is a collection of mature, like-minded individuals who strive for excellence both on the battlefield and in our interactions with others. We focus on open-world dominance without relying on territories or allies to outnumber our opponents. Our primary focus is ~10v10 battles - wherever we can find them. We also participate in ZvZ, 5v5 content, and more rarely, ganking. We are always looking for more competitive players who want to have an enjoyable time.
Where is your guild primarily located? What regions in Albion do you focus on?
We are based in the city of Caerleon. While Mercia is our main playground, we also travel throughout Siluria from time to time, all in the pursuit of (others') hard-earned loot.
Do you have any particular rivalries or ongoing quarrels with other guilds?
While everyone besides our guild members and our alliance members is an enemy in the open-world, we like to maintain at least 'neutral' relationships with most guilds so that the potential for mercenary work is always there. Those who rub us the wrong way can expect no kindness though...
What were some of your most memorable battles/activities?
The above battle was definitely fun and memorable, especially when considering how easy it was to set up. To be honest though, we have too many memorable moments to count. Most of our fights have explosive conclusions. Getting famous (or infamous) from our many Reddit posts has always been memorable as well. Finally, getting our first command mammoth from an enemy during a Warcamp fight and splitting its value among the guild members who helped take it down was most definitely a great moment.
What does your guild do for fun?
We enjoy killing others and having them kill us. We also enjoy analyzing videos, theory crafting, and improving ourselves. Finally, we love to have a good time through either text or voice chat in our Discord server.
What is your guild's approach to the game? Do you have any sort of overarching philosophy?
FrostClaw and Surlo, the two guild masters of BFG, established the guild with a number of foundational tenets that were not all present in any existing guild. We sought to be, and continue to be, non-toxic, highly competitive, striving to improve, and masters of open-world tactics. We have a low tax, no mandatory donations, equal loot splitting, and no mandatory content in order to help our members feel relaxed and rewarded while playing. Finally, despite our insistence on not being toxic to others in-guild or out, our in-game actions always tend to be cut-throat; we will do what it takes to better our guild and those who are a part of it.
What are your goals for the future? What is your ultimate goal in the world of Albion?
In the future, we would like to have our guild hit the cap of 300 people and be entirely full of core members. We want everyone in the guild to be comfortable and synergize with any and all of their fellow guild members. We want our enemies to cower when they see a BFG guild member appear on their screen. Ultimately, we want to become the uncontested, strongest open-world presence in the game while maintaining something that few, if any, other top guilds can properly maintain: inclusiveness.
Anything else to share about your guild?
We understand what it takes to become a top guild in the current state of Albion, and we're striving to reach that peak. We will not let anyone hold us down, and the ideas that our guild was founded on will never fade from our minds. We love the game and we love how real people can be shaped by it.
