I've not been able to actually log into game for quite some time now due to illness, but one of the things that keeps me going through all the therapies, ops, etc etc is this particular forum. Shutting it down will be detramental to my well-being and health.

can't help it <evil elf girl
So i have to get my 2 pennies worth in for what i believe to be what needs to be said to defend our server, our pvp community (they hate to admit it but they do need each other!)
and this thread!
Yes, there are ingame wars between creep/freep players, tribes and kins, as well as the love to hate 'certains' lots of flaming, accusations, sarcasm, banter, tongue in cheek comments and all out slander, but that is Gilrain through and through.
I think we'd all be totally horrified and at a loss if it was any other way. This is as much a part of our community dynamics as its not to other servers. - Did that make sense?
Gilrain is a much smaller community than most other servers, with a totally different outlook to the game than players on the larger servers have because of that.
So ofc our ingame and forum relationships will be different, the people here have been around for years and years, with a large number of pvp'rs having been around since launch and our low numbers means that things are more personal in certain ways which is why there is much more passion in our written words.
Other servers pvp forums are boring in comparison to this one. ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Way i see it, our enemies enemy is our friend, bringing down this thread with all its history of things past will enrage creeps and freeps alike.
Gilrains pvp community does have its opposing sides, but in one thing i truly believe it will unite in ourtrage and dissapointment against an enemy far crueler than Sauron himself!
THE THREAD MODERATORS and closure of this thread.
So please just leave it be, and enjoy it for what it really actually is at face value.
A place in which disgruntled freep/creeps vent their views, to get it out their systems so they can then go back to give and receive more abuse.
That's our way, its how we are, its what we know.
Our PVP threads have been closed before for the same reason, but that hasn't changed our community. What does that say about our community dynamics?
Another thread closure will not achieve that end again. Gilrain is what it is. A love/hate community. We love to hate and hate to love.
Imho, despite being abit ott at times, taking this from us again will not achieve that goal.
And anyhoooos. IF it was a nice clean thread, you wouldn't have to check it n clean it up, n that's what keeps you paid!!!!!!!!!
And i would like to end this post with a quote which, from the passion and conviction in which it was voiced, instilled a ferocity that gave way to a legendary stand from which tyranny was abated.
Picture the scene setting...
Leonidas, face to face with the emissary of the all powerful Persian tyrant Xerxes, is being counselled by him to speak with care, as his next words will determine the fate of his kingdom of Sparta, its people and the fates of Greece overall!
Head bowed in contemplation, he looks to his Queen, she gives him the slightest nod, knowing her husband and kings mind.. imparting with that gesture the undeniable truth.. we are Spartan, We are born to this end
He turns to Xerxes emissary...
"Madness" he says, echoing the last word of the emissary's council.
Leaonidas grows in stature, conviction, pride and intent and shouts,
THIS IS SPARTA
I say... THIS IS GILRAIN!
did y'all like my little story! ????
