Hey guys, Matt/Destabilise/I Less Than 3 You here..on my first ever acc..as I lost the password to I Less than:icon_redface:
Just wanted to drop a quick few paras to say well done to FORK, great to see you eventually won officially after this long time. I must offer a special mention to those who have been in the world from the start, that takes some commitment and dedication. It may only be a game, but that's the reason it can be so tedious and unpractical to continue for such a time. Remaining on the same account for 3+ year is quite some achievement in my books.
Unfortunately, as you all know, the man who started the tribe with me didn't manage to make it, but through no fault of his own. However Michel solely lay down the path for FORK's victory, giving the tribe the vital foundations it needed to succeed mid game. Brad's leadership qualities along with Brandon's commitment and dedication right at the very end ensured that FORK followed this path to victory. FORK would not of won without the three of you, that is indisputable.
However, tribes don't just win with quality leadership (although it is strongly advised..). Players who are constantly willing to sit and go over and above expectations in war are the reasons tribes make it the end. FORK din't have an abundance of them, but the ones they did have were the back bone of the tribe. Streak, Lexi, Hells, TWM, Anti, Muso and a few more I'm sure, along with those already mentioned, made this win possible. Even though this is a war game, fighting is not the only thing people enjoy about the game.The varied personalities in FORK made day to day engagements a little more fun, well, for the most part. To give an example: We all know of Brad's stubbornness and of Nile's self proclaimed inability to ever be wrong..no idea how you guys managed to co-play in a civil fashion! We also can't forget Kiwi, one very angry sole.
As I said before, in my opinion, having the commitment to last a while on this game is actually harder than playing it. It is something I struggle with as those who played with me will be aware of..lol, and is why I deem it the ultimate achievement to have made it to the end from start-up. Big well done again guys, I hope you're all taking a well deserved brake, although I suspect most of you won't of! Goodluck whatever world you're in, along with RL.
Hey Jace, nice to see you around, was a shame we didn't keep you on the world longer. I just thought I'd reply to one of your top moments ( I'll spoiler it as I don't want it to take away from the main thread)[SPOIL]
1) Recruiting .Sam and Kasra from Pacman. Silly trolls actually convinced Matt they couldn't stand DaBearo and that being on the other side of the world wasn't a big deal
In regards to the recruitment, me and Michel discussed it and came to the conclusion that if they were trolling or serious, it wouldn't matter either way. If they were trolling, they leave in a few days, who really cares? ( as did happen). We had nothing important undergoing at the time. We'd also learn their true intentions in no matter of time. If they were serious and Pacman attacked them, would we of supported them? Hell no! Sure on paper we'd lost villages, but they were never our villages in the first place and we'd of weakened the No1 tribe in the world at the time in the process, through loosing their best players and troops. We knew what we were doing:icon_wink:[/SPOIL]
