Guild Ball takes place in a land now known as the Empire of Free Cities. The lands of the empire are made up of a vast range of climates, cultures and landscapes, each controlled by a sovereign City. Mob football is a game generally played between neighbouring towns and villages on feast days, which accounts for its popularity. At its core, players on opposing teams clash and struggle to control a leather wrapped inflated pig's bladder and attempt to kick it into the opponent’s goal. The powerful Guilds took advantage of the huge popularity of the sport and invested great sums of money, creating professional teams and structured leagues. The public went crazy as the game was elevated to new heights of spectacle. Guild Ball was born amidst a blaze of interest and publicity, and with it a whole new business and revenue stream for the Guilds. Games are now played out in front of immense crowds, whilst behind the scenes the results can mean fortunes are won or lost on the kick of a ball.
Fisherman play style is all about movement and raw goal-scoring potential. They are dominant in the early game and can easily draw one or two goals ahead very quickly. However, mid to late game they need to be wary, especially if they lose a player or two. They excel at movement and kicking the ball - they are practically all about offense. Their combo play revolves around (re)positioning and exploitation of space. Whilst not entirely equipped with raw damage soaking defence, they instead have far subtler defensive options that focus much more on space control.
