In the game of Tribalwars, perseverance and determination are often far more important than the ability to precisely click your left mouse button. And Lori912 deserves to be recognized for exemplifying these traits. Outnumbered, outgunned, and left to fend for herself for much of the time, Lori never stopped logging in. While many of her fellow frontliners dropped off over time for whatever reasons (kraig, Gorillaz, Spunky, nitto, RP, Vent, etc), Lori kept on trying; when events outside of the game took a turn for the worse in RL, and she was presented with a good and convenient excuse to step away from the world of defense, she did not. She stuck with it through and through.
After all of this, when it comes time to choose between personal glory and silently helping her friends get the victory, Lori volunteers to leave Calm. in order to get sc0ter to join with the necessary secrets to stymie SPAM. In a 72 hour period of extreme selfishness and selling out friends, Lori presents a shining moment amongst the storm clouds, giving one more sacrifice so her friends can have a shot to win.
And that is our Silver Lining moment of the game.
As a result, I have decided to make a donation of premium to Lori. Hopefully she uses it to play another server and be a valuable addition to any tribe.

Congratulations. You deserve it.
This is a very belated THANK YOU to Scott and Val and all the others who have spoken up on my behalf. (And sent me PP!) I typically avoid the external forums because of all the crap...but I am humbled by the nice words and sentiments that have been shared here. And I even forgive you lmavor for the not so kind remarks.
I never expected anyone to take notice of anything. It was bittersweet to give up a possible win with my tribe and the friends that have had my back for so long in order for sc0ter to win, but I wasn't going to let sc0ter take that opportunity away from the others just because of his hatred for me. I have met some REALLY great people in this world that have had my back and they deserved a shot. Winning would never be important enough to me to sacrifice friends. Not that it mattered in the end. Turns out some of the Spam guys aren't too bad either, actually glad to see a couple of them in the winners circle! texaspete is a helluva opponent, and fun adversary. Congrats to the bunch of them.
I am now just hoping to see the west pull it together and actually give Spam a taste of it's own medicine.
