    In memory of Memorial Weekend - NO to Darkhome under Siege

    This weekend there will be a war - Darkhome under Siege. For the last three wars we have been successful in a Top 50 placing.

    We have decided as a Guild not to participate in this war.

    We don't believe that these wars should be so frequent. We certainly believe it should not be on Memorial Weekend. Though we have good representation across international barriers, we believe our American members should not have to fight wars on this weekend.

    It was bad enough that we had Easter Weekend, which was difficult for our Christian members. Then it was Mother's Day - making it uncomfortable for our families. But enough is enough.

    We all have choices. We can fight. Or we don't. We can fight with gems, or we can do it gem free. Ultimately, we have a choice to take a stand. And our decision is to say NO to Darkhome under Siege.

    This weekend The Crusaders will not be fighting. We will spend time with our families. We will honour Memorial Weekend.

    And we will be back for the next war.

    Thank you for reading this message and we respect the decision of our guild member and every guild to do what they believe is right.

    The next battle is scheduled for Father's Day. Are you not going to honor fathers by sitting that one out?

    In the UK we honour our fallen on the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, we call it Remembrance Day.

    If we follow the lead of a reason not to play a game on a weekend to a GOBAL game we will never play.

    I respect your guilds decision not to participate, please do not blame GREE for providing a platform for me to play whilst you are not.

    Good for you guys. And what's with the haters? Holidays or not, any guild can choose to fight or skip the war.

    I have to admit that this is annoying for me to fight on weekends where there are holidays. But since this is indeed a worldwide event, this would make no sense to try to avoid some weekends. This would then be too complicated to GREE. I understand this and I accept it. Nonetheless, I have to admit as well that having wars every two weeks is way too much! We are all having our families, personaly lives and having war every two weeks is too much. This is especially true for me since I also play Modern War. I am officer in both factions/guilds..... I am loyal to my fellow members but this is indeed hard to play as often. Once per month was much better.

    Note that since this is a worldwide game, any attempts to boycott or make pressure on Gree will most likely not work. There will always be some players or guilds that will try to win in those situations. My salutations to you and your members for boycotting this war but I am affraid that you may regret this choice later on. However, we all need to remember that this is a game and should stay a game. Perhaps, you are right by not participating.....

    Thanks for the feedback and as I have said we respect the right of every guild to do what they believe is right, for various reasons.

    To have a war every two weeks is unsustainable. Simple as that.

    While, yes, this is a global game, it seems to be targetting *American* Holidays. We just had a war for Mothers Day weekend, and look, now 2 weeks later, another War. Then I am sure Fathers Day weekend.

    What happened to once a month or every XX weeks?
    Now, since Fathers Day is the last weekend 'holiday' until September, are they going to target mid week holidays? Or are we not going to have a war until September?

    Good for you, we fight gem free this war

    Most of the guilds we have faced are also fighting gem free this weekend. A few (FUN) choose to use gems, forcing others to do so. No respect for them. And because not many are using gems, we are close to the same place we normally are. If all members were online instead of at the lakes and rivers, we probably would be. 2 weeks between wars is not enough. Gree would have understood better if guilds like FUN weren't such butts about being first at all costs.

    Overalll, it is good to see that most guilds are indeed honourable and fighting gem free. We were concerned about the level of support and decided to send the strongest message we could.

    I suspect as we go forward in the game there will be other changes, such as alliances between guilds. We are open to discuss a more collaborative approach with guilds that are top 25, or top 75 or top 100.

    A guild of guilds at different rankings could become a very effective way of dealing with too frequent wars, grouping active players together, keen to fight a specific war.
