Correspondent Ben Avery recently released a two part guild Interview with one North American and one European guild about issues in the game and how they feel the game has measured up to expectations.

In part one Ben speaks with the North American guild known as Primal Instinct.

Introduction to Primal Instinct

We are a PvP guild, majority of the guild is made of players who played Anarchy Online (Funcom’s other MMO) for years, the members were on the same (and even opposite sides) of the war in AO, it was not a problem as "faction" differences were never really taken seriously by any of us (we are not role players), friendship with people on opposite sides was normal, you could kill him in PvP and still talk, raid, have fun etc.

PvP and PvE were separated and it was pretty common to have people of opposite factions interact on daily basis (outside of PvP) be it buffing/talking/raiding or whatever. When we heard that Age of Conan is ready for launch (end of 2006) we picked up the people who played/stopped playing AO and organized them.

The game was delayed and most of us either went back to AO (at that time another expansion was launched and Silirrion became the Game Director after some time) or to other MMO’s.
