Being First Is Hard Work (in General)


FailBoat[SG] November 15 2007 2:33 PM EST

I mean really... How do you guys handle this heavy of a load?

Godpanda November 15 2007 2:34 PM EST

Seriously. It's like having to drag your 500 pounds of gold to the bank. Hard stuff, man...

48xVanished48 November 15 2007 3:02 PM EST

Wow.. Your clan came in first place.. Once.. Amazing.

QBOddBird November 15 2007 3:07 PM EST

Congratulations on being in first! =)

That having been said, it's taking first and keeping it consistently that is a difficult achievement. If you can keep that up with 4 N*B characters in the clan that will soon cause a Clan Score Penalty, then I will truly be tipping my hat to you all. ~_^

Hey, we're just happy to of moved to first. And if you check our numbers, its everyone pulling weight together and working hard to move us up.

Not to mention Ebony buying all of her BA this morning and burning through people...

Seriously though, we're just having fun. If we hold it, we hold it. We don't, who cares...

No touchy my Clan Bonus! No touchy! :P

"That having been said, it's taking first and keeping it consistently that is a difficult achievement."

... <sarcasm> unless 4 out of 5 members in your clan frequently have winning streaks in the thousands. </sarcasm>

Its also because all of the top clannees are to high compared to your clanmates to attack them that low.

FailBoat[SG] November 15 2007 4:36 PM EST

Bah, ya'll are just trying to belittle our taking over. But we won't let you! :P

Godpanda November 15 2007 5:16 PM EST

Too high?

Excuse me?

To my knowledge the only person who DOESN'T farm me in Ranger. That's IT.

So do your research.

QBRanger November 15 2007 5:31 PM EST

Thanks for reminding me GW.

Your back on my list.

[RX3]Cotillion November 15 2007 5:35 PM EST

Heh... Grats... To GW ... 'ha ha'. (just kiddin')

Mem November 15 2007 5:52 PM EST

Well played. It's not easy reaching the top. But can you keep it?

(Only if I keep having 19 hour days of school, I'm sure...)

"Its also because all of the top clannees are to high compared to your clanmates to attack them that low. "

Which also means that this clan in particular isn't even taking many (if any) points away from the top clan/s and still they managed to sneak into first. Yes staying there would be nice, but let me think back to a previous clan GW was in...
First it was "top 5 no big deal, get into the top 3", which Legion did.
Then not only did they make it to the top 3 but they managed to get in and out of 1st (don't recall how many times but I personally saw it at least several).
I say let them have their cake and enjoy it,
GREAT JOB DIES EASILY, you obviously do not.

Sorry if it seemed that way, I was just responding to the seemingly cocky nature of the first two posts. The way you were talking, it sounded as if you were saying 'this was easy!'. I just wanted to put in the reminder that getting there is the easy part, staying there is the hard part....after all, Majestic Moose put himself into 1st with over 20k+ points as a 1-man clan by saving bought BA. =)

FailBoat[SG] November 15 2007 8:56 PM EST

Held First for most the day. I think we're doing nicely.

BA Burn....

GO!

I see i've been used in a picture without my consent, or knowledge. Your going to be hearing from my lawyer.


But anyway, 'Grads on your #1 score!

(However short it may be)

Lol.....

FailBoat[SG] November 16 2007 1:22 PM EST

*yawns and looks at ranking of Clans*

So, where are our haters again?

Mem November 16 2007 2:08 PM EST

/me looks...

Battle Royale (15,668)
Dies Easily (13,913)

FailBoat[SG] November 16 2007 2:24 PM EST

Who is still getting the 15% bonus? :P

And yeah, I know we're totally getting beat by BR now. Looks like they're back on the ball.

Mem November 16 2007 2:26 PM EST

Just you wait until you start taking a hit to your cps because your clan is over the VPR limit...

FailBoat[SG] November 16 2007 2:28 PM EST

Whats a VPR?

FailBoat[SG] November 16 2007 2:33 PM EST

Just looked over the Wiki on it. We've still got a while to go unless my N*Bs push forward hard. Trust me, I'm watching that limit. Turned down two people and closed the join policy on my clan already.

FailBoat[SG] November 17 2007 3:16 AM EST

So seriously, after two days of sitting in the Top 3... this is really a pain in the butt to maintain.

Don't give me that, "Your Clan members are too small" bull either because we're getting farmed by some power houses. Its kinda starting to get ugly.

My respect for those that normally hold the Top 5 went up over the last 48 hours and my respect for my Clan has gone to a level I never knew exsisted. The guys and girls of Dies Easily have shown me how hard they can work and how honored I am to be the "Leader" of the Clan they want to stay in.

Well, there's certainly a noticeable gap between the Top four and the rest of the Top ten :D. Almost as noticeable as our Clan score relative to first place.. ~__~.
