I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank KANO for introducing Guild Wars to Viking Clan. In my opinion, it has made this game fun and rewarding, resulting in an all around enjoyable sporting and gaming experience. Guild Wars is an optional component to Viking Clan and therefore if you have cause for complaint, simply leave and go back to doing daily points. There is no need to whine and complain about a fighting feature in what has always been intended as a fighting game. I believe I am enjoying Guild Wars now because I am not in first place and I am not under any pressure to get a set amount of wps. Virtual trophies look real nice and pretty on your guild page but the truth of the matter is that its always more fun to be involved in something like this from within the pack and to be viewed as an underdog. Last week, my guild of 14 or so finished in 4th place ahead of full guilds including both N1 and VKF in facebook. I am proud of this (as much as one can be for a game). This week the fun continues but it is bordering on asinine nonsense. I`ve been watching as guilds try to bring down RVV by bulking up their guild and discarding members who have made meaningful contributions, in some cases, for months and years. It is one thing to take the time and effort to build a guild and forge relationships and friendships and to witness those guilds perform like finely honed machines, it is another thing entirely to comb through the attack group and grab a bunch of disparate folks. This treat of the week approach is doomed in the end to fail as egos get in the way. It is a venture that while it may work for one week, is doomed to be lost to history just as the vcr, crimped hair, and glow in the dark clothing has gone before. This flash in the pan conscripted nonsense says nothing. I would have admired ONE`s accomplishments far more had that well knit group that I fought against while in RVV stuck it through. The new ONE is like a Ben and Jerry`s flavour, a freak show novelty item that will be forgotten soon enough. Johan has in sense, become Johan Steinbrenner, with his merry band of New York Yankees. You can buy your way to the top in this game. We see it with players all the time. Apparently guilds can now do this too. I suppose it can be said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but in this case there is nothing to be applauded or admired in this quest for the virtual trophy.
