Chronicles From Leghumper’s Perspective
Ok, so CHRONICLES might be a bit of an over exaggeration, but for now, it at least got your attention!
Tonight begins a new chapter in our Kingdom (#94) and in #106 as we enter a 2 day MERGE EVENT with the loser being absorbed into the winning kingdom.
It’s a scary thing, though really, if that’s the only 2 outcomes, I guess it’s not really THAT big a deal, as either way, we are merging.
What do we lose out on if we lose?
The cool name “DAHAE”, (I pronouce it Dah Hay, but It could also be French, like “De Hey” or like Tatoo from Fantasy Island as in “Hey Boss! Da Hay! Day Hay!” or like “Rerun from that old 1970s show What’s Happening? “Da Hay HAY hay!”)
Our Bookmarks? I barely use them.
Our landscape, knowledge where everything is? Like when you stay at a friends house and it’s dark and you don’t know where the light switches are, you fumble around, trip over the dog, etc?
Our very IDENTITY!?! For as long as we’ve played this game (Or at least many of us, who have never been in another kingdom, like the guy who marries his high school sweetheart and has never been with another lover) we are DAHAE! We tell people in real life we are DAHAE, we tell our spouses and our kids we are DAHAE. (Now, don’t get me wrong, no one really cares, but still, we TELL them…..)
SO as we move forward in a few hours into the event, it’s scary. Will our allies find other allies who make them no longer need us? Will our enemies find new friends to make them a new threat? Will they be better than us at everything relegating us to 2nd class citizens in our own new home? Will we meet anyone we like? Will we be the outcasts? Will they make fun of our avatars and make us cry? The future is unknown. At least staying in our own kingdom, as dysfunctional as it is, the dysfunction is known. The unknown is SCARY!
Humans don’t do well with unknowns. Especially intelligent ones. Intelligent people will try to find order, explanations, try to put things in their proper places and see things that have some sort of SENSE! Luckily, I’m not all that smart, so I only worry about where I’m gonna have to port my SH and farms in the new kingdom if we lose.
But really, The UNKNOWNS. Human being HATE unknowns. When was the last time someone handed you a box, unlocked, but said, whatever you do, DON’T open it. Drive you batty? Open it anyway?
How about someone who leaves you a message “I need to talk to you right now, it’s important” and then no details? If you’re like me, you will then begin texting, calling, yelling out your upstairs windows, passing notes to your friends in study hall, sending out smoke signals, whatever you can do to find out WHAT that message was all about.
It’s scary. I don’t like it. In a few days, the dust will be all settled and either win or lose, we’ll make do with what we have. New friends, new enemies, new landscape, etc.
My HOPE is that our new combined kingdom will be working together for a greater good. Whether its to kick some hind-quarters in KVKs, or to perhaps put together a kick-buttocks Super Wonder team, or perhaps some other direction that makes sense for the new DUAL KINGDOM as a whole.
From my very first blog, I’ve stated I’m not a fan of the “attacking civilians” type of play. Hitting our own kingdoms players while on tiles, or just hitting a SH just because it’s a “War Game’ has never been my style. Hitting an enemy? Attacking Outlanders, strategizing at the wonder? LOVE that stuff! Love the rush, the heart beating out of my chest in that moment after a rally lands but you don’t know if your getting your hero back or you’re burning your target. LOVE it.
I would hope that the new kingdom-mates we acquire or join with will have the same philosophy and we can continue to grow, and progress, rather than perpetuate the infighting and drama that can destroy a whole kingdom.
As of this moment, the KVK merge event hasn’t started. I’m excited. Looking forward to it. I, and my alliance, and my alliances allies, will be fighting hard for Dahae, to KEEP dahae, to WIN for Dahae, and hopefully after it’s all over, our new residents and us can work together for the greater good and start a great WINNING STREAK of KVKS and tournaments!
If we end up winning one of those tournaments that allow us to change our kingdoms name, I’m pretty sure it will be unanimous when the vote is held and the new combined kingdom will take the name “LegHumpersHome” as really, it’s what’s most important. Isn’t it?
Thanks for reading this far, thanks for enjoying my other blogs. (or at least reading them and/or pretending to enjoy them)
Perhaps signing off for the last time as a Dahae resident, perhaps signing off for the last time before another kingdom comes and joins us. Time will tell.
Good luck Dahae! Kick Deriere!
Kingdom: #94, DAHAE (For now at least)
p.s. To our future allies, friends and even our enemies, I hope you do well in this event, I truly do. I hope you finish as high as 2nd place in this event. It will be a great feather in your cap to be able to tell our loved ones “Hey, we did well, we lost only to the great Leg Humpers Kingdom” and there will be much rejoicing in the land.
