Definition

A GvG Season is a set period of time of three months during which Guilds can compete and earn Season Points to participate in a ranking system also known as the Season Rankings. They can reach one of the five guild-ranks that currently exist in Albion: Iron, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Crystal.

History

GvG Seasons were introduced to Albion Online on December 2017. Between the GvG seasons, there are off-season periods, when guilds cannot score points. The first four off-seasons lasted for 2 weeks and the subsequent ones for 3 weeks each.

Events

Invasion Day

Three times during one season, at the beginning of each GvG Season and two times during the season, Invaders will spawn and claim ownership of all resource teritorries in Albion, resetting the ownership of all resource territories. On predetermined days all guild-ownership of resource territories will be set to unclaimed. This event is also known as Invasion Day. After all territories have been claimed and fought over by the guilds of Albion, the Season Scoring begins and guilds can start earning Season Points. A detailed GvG Season schedule is published on the official forums prior to a GvG Seasons start.

The Season 7 schedule can be found here.

Double Scoring

After the third and last Invasion Day of a Season, the scoring changes and all the points earned count double for the Season Rankings for the duration of the last month of a GvG Season.

GvG Season Scoring

Guilds can score their season points that count for the season rankings through various activities:

  • guild challenges by filling in the guild challenge progress bar through the same activities that count towards the individual Adventurer's Challenge
  • holding resource territories: the number of season points scored at the end of each territory's primetime depends on the continent of the territory and on how long the Siphoning Mages inside the territory have been alive
  • killing Siphoning Mages on enemy resource territories: season points are scored on the kill of a siphoned mage and the number of points varies based on the continent of the raided territory
  • holding castles and castle outposts during their scoring timers (either 19:00 UTC or 01:00 UTC)
  • crystal realm GvGs: the participating teams' guilds will score season points for wins, partial wins and partial losses at the end of the match

Guild Challenges

(please add info in Guild Challenges here once it is available)

Guild Challenges reward season points by filling in the Guild Challenge Progress Bar through the same activities that count towards the individual Adventurer's Challenge.

When the Progress Bar is filled the guild receives 300[1] season points.

Territory Season Points Scoring

At the start of each resource territory’s primetime on the first day after the season starts, scoring is enabled for each territory.

Claiming and holding territory during the end of a territory's primetime will award Season Points and Siphoned Energy to the Guild holding it.

Scoring begins at the start of each resource territory’s primetime when scoring gets enabled for the first time in the season.

Points from holding territories are scored at the end of each territory’s primetime.

Daily Points

Season Points Generated by Siphoning Mages:

  • These mages draw the raw power from the territories and collect it on their person before passing it on.
  • They spawn dynamically (1.5h 2h, 3h, 6h) until the maximum of four is present.
  • They position themselves around the GvG capture points in each territory.
  • They can be killed by any player from a different alliance.
  • If you kill another guild’s mages, they drop Siphoned Energy.
  • When killed they give season points shared among the guilds of the players who killed them.

Season Point Scoring via Castles and Castle Outposts

A guild holding a castle or castle outpost during its daily scoring timer will be rewarded with season points based on the table below.

Castle and castle outpost scoring timers are either 19:00 or 01:00 UTC.
