Hai dere, GD!
Sorry for interrupting all of the exciting election posts. I’ve just had this post in the drafts for quite a while and thought I’d finish it up. I’ll be covering up the erupting topic known as top tens.
It seems like every single top ten there is always a specific group of armies that are extremely pissed off. Nonetheless even if the top ten was like amazingly perfect, somebody will always get mad because they think they deserved this or that. I’m even someone to be blamed for this sort of reaction. Once I retired from major armies I noticed something, that the top ten is taken way out of proportion. Yeah, the top ten is useful for new recruits and leaders to have an understanding where armies stand.
It’s just a top ten. Who gives a crap where you stand? As long as you know your army is amazing then it shouldn’t matter what one person says about it. If GD gets tenth, awesome. If GD gets first, awesome. All that matters is that you, the soldiers, know that you joined for the awesome army and not just because of GD‘s top ten rank. It goes for any army, honestly.
A few days ago, a friend of mine came on chat and decided to hold a conversation with me. My friends thinks that we, the Global Defenders, have been striving desperately to get back into the major top ten ever since we’ve dropped out. I kindly disagreed with my friend, promising that if GD were perceived as this that I would try my best to change it. Global Defenders are not another army that just cares about the top ten. We’re here to carve out our own history. Think of it like what John Winthrop said when he first landed in America.
For we must Consider that we shall be as a City upon a Hill, the eyes of all people are upon us[…]
