Hi fans, or spectators, or curious readers. It's been a while, and for that I'm sorry. I've enjoyed blogging about War Dragons, but lately I've been very caught up in perhaps a little of real life and a little of enjoying the farm too much to remember to blog here about "A Whole Lot of Nothing."
Almost a year ago already, I was promoted at work to Director of Support and a whole lot of other stuff which has kept me surprisingly busy. I used to think directors and the like sat around doing a whole lot of nothing. Well, I put that theory to rest. The other day I literally clocked 21 hours of work in a day. That is just wrong, but I'm told otherwise. "This is why you make the big bucks." As a fan of the book, "The 4 Hour Work Week," my opinion differs, but as a gainful employee, I'll stay shut on that.
How about taking a break from the game for medical or other reasons leaving your team entrusted to a friend then returning only to be mocked and not even accepted back into your clan but getting farmed instead? What do you think of that? Do you think a team's founder should be able to get their team back at any time or otherwise? Please take my survey. I'd love to know your experience and opinion, and please know you'll be kept anonymous in my survey.
Players helping one another out has become ever so important especially with some folks having Atlas and others not. The need for Farm teams remains. It is my hope that our Farm resources on my website and in our private Facebook group (please join if you're a farm fan) are assistive. The ever so controversial new Team Quests have caused at times extreme riffs in League Chat, to the point of people starting wars because a player didn't attack in the expected manner (I was one of them, but fortunately no one declared on the Farm because of it [laughs out loud]). I accepted the request to attack another team's member from League Chat who needed a quest. I was using my baby Jul and was so ecstatic she wasn't dead by 70% that I completely forgot that 1) it was lumber week and 2) I should have quit at 69%. I didn't get into trouble for it, but I did feel bad, realizing that I stole a little lumber that was quickly picked up by one of the fans farming me as a day to day hour to hour thing, and I'd have some trouble easily giving it back to the player.
People refusing to return something entrusted to them in faith just, well, suck. I'm usually more flowery in my speech, but I'm a bit angry today. That is when my vocabulary goes downhill, kind of like when you stub a toe? The same concept applies when you work your tail off in real life work or in the game to "help" people, then they deficate on you by not returning the favor to you, or just pretending they don't know you. I'm not going to get too deep personally with the above so as not to start World War III, but I want to say that it hurts. However, if those people actually cared, they'd be reading this anyway and wouldn't have done what they did or didn't do.
Some people conveniently forget. A quick last example from today in a private Facebook chat about "helping," (and in front of his wife as it was the three of us chatting), "Personally love ... I trust Alleviates .... she's "Sacred."
Until next time folks . . . stay well, blessed, and be "sacred" ~ Alleviates
