Guild Ball has not always been a tool of the guilds. At its purist form, it’s a game of community, a game of nations. In the Homeland Cup, coaches assemble their team rosters based on their players’ homeland, not guild affiliation. Will you choose to lead the ferocious Skaldic nation, the refined Castellyians, the cunning Erskirii, or the devious Raed to victory? One thing’s for sure, this is an event like no other! This event will run for approximately 8 hours (includes pre-event setup and organization), and is the perfect event for players of any skill level interested in trying out an exciting, new way to play Guild Ball.
