As I write this blog, we are nearing the 24 hour mark to the start of the next campaign. I’m rushing around finishing last minute touches to my character and personal life. I feel confident, excited, and ready for the challenge which motivated me towards completing all my tasks.
Last evening, our guild, Epic Synergy, spent some time in Cyrodiil. After about three hours, we really started to get a good synergy going (no pun intended) and I logged off for the night. Realizing that I will need an Army to stop the endless red zerg, it was all about others today. We talked strategy, crafted gear, went and leveled skills and got ready for a week long adventure. The closer and closer the event gets, the tighter and tighter our community becomes. I’m sure this won’t come easy as people love to troll community members, so I expect Monday to be no different. But a lot (and I mean a lot) of people have been supportive so this will be a great event!
This morning, I rushed off to finish the last bit of house work and literally picking out seven shirts and pants I plan on wearing for the week. The only decisions I want to make will be in game. I even moved a small refrigerator downstairs so I can have a near endless supply of caffeine. Then my wife went and picked up a massive amount of fattening, Emperor-approved food. You know, hot pockets, candy bars, the stereotypical gamer food. I don’t care this week, it’s all about quick and easy energy needed to thwart off the purple army.
I do have to be honest, not all the news I received today was good. A long time family friend, my Dad’s closest, suddenly died. He meant a lot to me, helping our family throughout 20+ years. Helping me working on cars, talking, and drinking an occasional beer. Today I shed a tear and plan on attending his funeral Thursday. This only galvanizes my resolve to work towards my goal and that all of us should do the same. Life is short, do what you love and this was a sudden reminder of that. For most of us, ESO means more than just a game. It’s our social outlet, what we do for fun, or an escape. We must not lose sight of what’s important, and that’s each other in game or out. So, I welcome all of you to join in for or against me and participate in Cyrodiil. Thanks community, you are what motivates me to help others.
Sorry for your loss man.
Looking forward to smashing some purple shields with you deltia. Lets get multiple AD emps
Let’s get it done.
a stable supply of coffee and peanut m&m’s = victory! throw in a few pizzas and you might end up as the longest reigning emperor on haderus hahahaha
Sorry Deltia for the lose, just keep smasing purples ;).
Have fun, will follow your rising, you deserve it!
Sorry to hear that Del, seems as of late I’ve witnessed quite a few of saddening things. One of my buddies had four of his friends tell them they were recently diagnosed with cancer. My German Shepherd pup of 13 years, and the last of his distinguished line, who has been fighting an immuno-disease all his life is nearing the end of his suffering.
I’ve been hunkering down to create videos of my dungeon adventures with Overdosed and preparing to keep up with your streams while I’m not able to play myself. My friend, we are about to get this party started!
As much as I am able I will bare my shield for you brother, whether I live for the typical three seconds or not, I hope to put in some work.
Let’s get to it brother.
Thanks man, let’s crush it.
Sorry for your loss, brother. We’re ready on our end, no stopping till the mission is completed and the enemy terminated.
Speaking of got run to the store myself…. need some gaming MRE’s for this week, lol.
If I hadn’t been on holiday I would have been tempted to make an AD char on NA and grind to vet ranks justto help out! Goodluck!
Looks like it could be a competitive campaign.
Nocturnal thought we would check it out last night to find No Mercy teaming up with the local DC to crown Ariana Kishi (self proclaimed worlds greatest dk) emp and push AD and EP to their gates.
Looking at the AvA forum, it looks like some of the more organised guilds are targetting the buff servers for some lag free pvp against greater odds (granted those odds are mostly pve players looking to protect their buffs).
All looking like it will be a fun week.
Nay nay sir, no filthy AD will be crowned Emperor while I’m able to stop it!
Sorry to hear about your loss. I have truly enjoyed your videos and the knowledge you have shared. I will see you out there. Unfortunately it will be through the sights of my bow. For the Covenant and Emric!
