UPDATE: Stonehills have withdrawn from the War. Event is Canceled :| Hey guys, it's me, your friendly neighborhood Corinthian, with an important announcement. But first, a question: DO YOU LIKE WAR? I hope so, because this weekend, on Saturday, July 15th at 6 AM PDT/2 PM UTC/11 PM Tokyo time, The Observers will be hosting a 1 hour system war against their sworn (not really, we don't swear) enemies the Stonehills. But sir, I'm just a humble forumer. What care do I have for your humble war of the wet noodles? Putting it simply: If you compare the two clans, you'll notice a few things. If you check the EB history, you'll see that the Stonehills have anywhere from, say, 7-15 players active. The Observers, meanwhile, have anywhere from 1-5 players active in any given EB. Sure, we have a couple that hit off the Battle List or designated personal farming targets, but the size gap is huge. That leads to the next comparison - the CS of the opposing sides. In this regard, I am currently #1 in my clan with a little more than 41 mil CS. In the opposite corner, the Stonehills have players approaching 100 mil CS active. Half of The Observers active players are newbies who just got their 100 Legend turn-in, or are working towards it. Corinthian! What are you doing? Why would you walk your clan into this David and Goliath of the Tinies match? I'm glad you asked. The reason is, the Stonehills really want to flex their rusty joints and do a system war with ANYONE around their size. Unfortunately, despite much petitioning in world chat, only The Observers are man-enough (dumb enough) to accept their offer. However, the Stonehills want to pretend they are at war, so we need members. Ideally, members without more than 120 mil CS, but anyone who wants can participate. I won't be kicking folks for this, but both of us will be EXCLUDE-ing members of our clans who are opting out of this match. This will probably be chaos. However, when's the last time you had a dust-up outside of the Legends system? Let's be honest - you were only hitting an OSF or getting your participation badge, anyways. At the worst, this will be worst than indi. At best, this will spark competitive hatred that will last beyond the war for some players. You could even join the Stonehills, if they will take you. So what are you waiting for? You don't have to join now, but don't forget to sign-up below and get ready for the in-tents action. This war organized by two folks who have no idea what they are doing. Any discomfort, fatigue, exasperation, tiredness, annoyances, or other bother is to be accounted for. By joining, members agree to pretend they are fighting in CC, claim to have bought thousands of potions, and otherwise make it appear like something is actually happening during the war. Silent participants are excused as long as they claim they were asleep, even if they were the top participants.
