Said my hellos to a couple of friends in guild, then proceeding to click on the Join Battleground button. Sometimes I like to queue solo.
Got in, it was BG weekend and cracks my knuckles in anticipation of the ensuing bloodshed.
I know we can't win all games, but when we win we had to fight tooth and nail for it and when we lose it seemed always easy game for Horde. Despite this, I still love my Horde pals in this server.
Per usual, no one cared about Stables so I took the liberty to defending stables with the lone healer whom the rest of the group left alone.
Game goes on, a few skirmishes in stables here and there. Throughout the entire game been calling out incomings from where I can see, but things are looking bleak for the Alliance. Nothing new.
No one seems interested in defending stables, so I stayed there with the new healer friend I made. Over the course of the battle, I simply do my job staying put there and making sure not a single Horde tapped the flag.
Game was almost over, and keep in mind I'm still defending stables. Keep in mind me and heals had good synergy. Nothing tapped the flag.
And then the clarion call cometh:
"Everyone should obey Gottfried - Sisters of Elune". (sarcasm)
"So it must be easy to sit on stables and watch your team died, huh?"
"Defence? More like you're not playing".
"Lawl, u all are noobs".
"You're from an RP server anyway Gottfried, your contribution means nothing".
"RP'ers only do the @%%!@ job of 'Defence' anyway".
Thank you for the kinds words to this humble Knight of Arathor.
I'm Gottfried, and I'm standing guard at Stables. Alone or with like-minded friends.
It may be a thankless task, but someone had to do it.
