Yeah, it's been a long run. I remember early on being in Elite, a tribe that warred Cruel for a whole 5 days. By the time Elite had disbanded I'd quit to take a break for a couple months (initially I was supposed to go co-play in Cruel, but that just didn't happen), then I came back, and from there the rest is pretty much history. I worked my way up the ranks of Cruel through being on of the top accounts in the 800813 war early on, leaving the main branch of Cruel to be in charge of Vil3 to get all the new 800813 recruits working with the Cruel players, to get to know them and guide them. Becoming one of the most offensive accounts in the Mayhem war. Despite the council early on having concerns about trusting me due to talking to Pack, I made my way to being a Baron of ~CT~. I helped guide the direction of the tribe. When the council was very inactive, I negotiated the Turtle/Cruel merge and then the new Tribe name/tag (I guess I take credit for starting endgame). Later I would organize the largest OP on w72 (Age made the nuke orders for one of the targets, but I sent them out), with the OPs totaling 13,886 Nukes donated (probably 10,000-11,000 or so were sent on time/correctly).
Some personal shout-outs:
Sanj: Man, from early on when we met, we never thought we'd end up winning together.
Naz: Darn it Naz, I saw you go yellow again, that was what, the 10th time now (guessing at this point)?
We were both in Elite, and here we both are winning together.
Aman: Always enjoyed the intellectual conversation. If for no other reason, you're awesome for having annoyed Age during the 800813 war.
Lord Tartar: Probably the most respectful member in ~CT~ "Yes Sir. No Sir."
Roland: You were definitely able to hold your own as a defender. You would dodge everything you could and lose pretty much no troops even if you got hit with hundreds of nukes. (We know you'd put your troops in barbs).
You got that last village when I wasn't on. It was fun launching at each other on the last day.
Death Grim: You noob.
Farmercy: Paul, despite everything that has been said this world. Good game. Regardless of how you got to where you are or how you maintained your position, you did hold your own until the very end.
This is my shoutout for Age:
Age - At least now that the world is over maybe you won't be trying to kidnap any animals.
Agenroe-Knightmares ....: thanks for the shout out BY THE WAY haha
Agenroe-Knightmares ....: I have gone out of my way to hate on you and kidnap your dog for the last year and a half haha
I'm sure I'll see you guys around on other worlds or in various skype chats.
