That's right, fellas. Yours truly will be running an alliance on Fantasy 1 when it resets. I'm just getting a head start now.
BUT ROBIN HOOD, WHY SHOULD I JOIN YOU?
Because I'm Robin Hood. I happen to be one of the oldest BD members here. Battledawn started in 2004, and I was right there with our lord and savior Michael when it all began. That gives me street cred. Right, MaliceWolf?
IF YOU'RE SO OLD, WHY DON'T I KNOW WHO YOU ARE?
...I may have taken a ten year hiatus from the game to join the military. The REAL military. I'm out now. I've popped in the SPAM channel every year on April Fools day to announce my return (I like to think they fell for it every year. ...don't judge me.)
OKAY, WHAT'S YOUR PITCH?
Come join me, Robin Hood, in Robin's Merry Men (MryM)! When Fantasy 1 resets, we'll settle there.
HOW WILL WE COMMUNICATE?
We will use a Discord server; I'll set it up, and I expect my fellow Merry Men to utilize it.
Look, if our enemies launch an attack at 2:00am, and one of our members sees it, he/she needs to be able to sound the alarm. Discord is a perfect application for that, as I'll have one text channel set specifically for important alerts, so everyone gets the notification via phone.
THIS SOUNDS LIKE A SUPER SERIOUS ALLIANCE, I DON'T THINK I CAN COMMIT!
Don't worry. I don't actually expect you to wake up every time an alarm goes off at 2am to move troops. I plan to play pretty passively. I know, I know... people will yell at me for playing "Battlehugs" instead of BattleDawn or whatever, but when I say "passive" I don't mean "never attack." I just mean we'll try to get along with everyone, which likely means less war than usual. Hopefully that also means less screaming at each other via carrier pigeon.
THAT ALMOST SOUNDS TOO CASUAL. HOW DO YOU PLAN ON WINNING?
My winning strategy is simple: have fun. If you're playing to only win the round, but meanwhile getting no sleep and spending hundreds of dollars in donations and frankly being stressed out all the dang time, then you've already lost. My alliance will have FUN, and when the round ends we're going to come back together as the same group because we enjoyed ourselves. THAT, my dear friends, is how you win BattleDawn.
OKAY, FINE. WHAT KIND OF PLAYERS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
I don't care about your experience, or your achievements. All I ask is you communicate, and keep high spirits. Seriously, if you want a fun BattleDawn experience, apply in this thread.
