    A good world is a world where it is hard to predict what will end up happening. We all have fun putting odds on our favorites with "Top 10 Tribes" reviews, top players, hypothetical fights. There have been times when a clear winner rose: from the first month of this long world, up to a month ago.

    From 69.4% to 60.1% From a tribe that was barely half a percent away from the world win to a tribe slowly descending the spiral into oblivion.

    This will feel like bragging, and it is. It is a shout out to everyone in Regime who has pulled this together, because today the tribe went from a lost hope to climbing above the halfway point to the WD. With an op on a recent tribal leader - one that consistently writes members of Regime to mock them - the tribe reached 35.1% WD.

    It obviously isn't a world win - far from it. And Destiny is still a tribe significantly larger than Regime is as a whole. They have more nukes, more defense, more villages, (more leaders...). And yet currently Regime is bringing the numbers closer together.

    Regardless, this is a milestone, and one that I feel should be marked. This tribe could have hit delete when it was at its lowest and yet it shouldered the insults, the mockery, and the steady stream of village losses as it watched Destiny hit the point at which there was obviously no return.

    You're demons, Regime. You bristle, you snarl, you bleed, and you keep walking through the storm of arrows. The enemy looks at you and cries, "Foul!" because they are incapable of believing that you were able to do this. No matter how anyone feels, no matter how anyone replies to what you have done, you deserve to feel good about this accomplishment. Tribal Wars' history shows that few tribes have turned things around at the last moment. And its history shows that no one has done quite what you have done already.

    You made it to 35.1%

    Each one of you will be here for the other half, and I look forward to it.

    Perhaps we should just go inactive for a month. Give Regime time to catch up with a day.
