Do you remember the March of the Guilds contest? It was a very special event where all Revelation Online guilds were eligible for once-in-a-game-time rewards – an original theme song, composed for the winning guild by Revelation Online's award-winning composer, Neal Acree, along with original artwork and guild logo designed by my.com's artists – all of which (and more) was up for grabs simply for explaining why the participant’s guild was the place to be.
After the winners of the March of the Guilds contest were selected, both Neal and the my.com team set out on a mission to create music and art for “Illusion”, the winning guild, and we’re happy to say that the rewards are now ready to be unveiled! Before we do that, we’d first like to express one more thank you to each and every guild for their past participation, and we'd like to respectfully tip our hats to Neal Acree for joining us on this creative adventure.
Without further ado, here are the rewards for the March of the Guilds contest:
Now, close your eyes and immerse yourself in the sound of Nuanor:
We also caught up with Illusion's leader, Mizuno, to hear what she had to say about the game and the contest:
Who is Mizuno? Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m a gamer, living in Germany and playing a level 79 Spiritshaper. In real life, I love to take photos of my friends and cosplayers all around the world.
When did you create your guild and who founded it?
Illusion was created on the first day of the Open Beta (27.02.2017) and the Founder was Nutoma.
How did you come up with the name Illusion?
Illusion was not the original name. It was renamed when a new leader took over the guild. New leader. New name. New image.
How did you prepare for the March of the Guilds contest?
I decided to participate in the contest when it was announced but I didn't have much time. That’s why I took videos whenever I could (my group still hates me). On the last day, I put together the entire video in only 7 hours. I cried and flamed a lot, but with the moral support of my in-game husband, I did it in time.
How many of you are there in Illusion?
We have about 60 active members at the moment.
Are you currently recruiting new members and if so, do you have any special requirements?
Yes, we are. If someone wants to join, they have to be active, have reached level 59 and have a semi-progress play style. They also need to be friendly and non-toxic players, because a harmonious coexistence is vital to us.
How do your members benefit from being in your guild?
We have a level 8 base with 5 guild buffs. Guild bosses are done every day and we participate in all PvP parts. Help with dungeons, skills and other questions is another benefit along with our good working alliance. The most important benefit: We are drama free!
Do you have any special moments or experiences that stand out in Revelation Online?
The most special moment with Illusion was that we achieved 1st place in the August Tournament. Personally, every day is a special when I can spend it with my in-game husband, guild members and friends.
You visited Gamescom this year in Cologne, what stands out as the highlight of that visit?
I had two highlights. First, I surprised a good friend of mine. I told her I couldn't make it and she cried when she saw me. The second one was the my.com staff members. It was a pleasure to meet and talk with them, most notably the European Lead Community Manager!
Finally, is there a message that you'd like to get out to other Revelation Online players and guilds?
Stay strong and find your own truth in the game.
"The March of the Guilds" was a very unique experience, one we were extremely happy to take part in and we hope Illusion members enjoy their rewards as much as we did putting them together. Once more, congratulations to Illusion and thank you all for taking part in this special contest, as well as Neal Acree for his musical-magic!
