I enjoy war in general. My first war was hosted by Anika and Jeffy was our war lead. It made a wonderful experience and desire to participate in other wars. - thanks guys... I participate in wars to recreate the camaraderie and fun from my first war. I try to encourage others to be part of war for it, but most of all I want new comers to war to have the same experience I did with you guys. This war, what can I say... it was a different experience at times. We at times, worked well together, but other times it was difficult. Morale was low and you could see the imbalance before and definitely after the DQs departures, this did not help the spirit of the team. Most of all, outside influences did not help the team. Outside influences- hits, tut snatching, and individuals not allowing learning experiences of growth can caused a deficit in the team, too. Sadly, we experienced all of this. How to make it better, first and foremost- allow your TEAMS to lead and learn. It’s not always about the win. It’s not a winner mindset vs. a loser mindset. War is a growth opportunity and supposed to be a fun experience. It’s supposed to allow a team to strategize and work together. It makes a team have to acknowledge each other’s strengths and weaknesses. A team can only do that with open minded leads willing to listen and being dependent on their team for communication and instruction. A lead is not a dictator, but a guide. A lead should never think it is their way or no way. A lead should set the pace and be an example of sportsmanship. How to fix: A lead should be a active participant of the war- not an outside source. Another issue to acknowledge -what about DQs? Rules are rules, but DQs should of had representation to plead their case. Some DQs were unnecessary and viewed as possibly done over previous interactions and biases. How to fix: Having an unbiased council of peers to determine if DQs should be dropped not just an individual or individuals. All in all will I war again- yes. Would I war again with Freshmen Psi- hell yeah! What should change- a few things. If anyone reads this long winded response and you were new to war and on Freshman Psi, please don’t let this experience influence you negatively on future opportunities to participate in war. I hope to see everyone again in war. 🏆 Well done Senior Alphas, you definitely deserved the win. 🏆 To the group that made this a memorable experience, you know who you are- 🌚 CPs make you strong and double plunder, keep the color name dates going, and thank you for the memories. 👏🏼 PHANTOM CRATES 👏🏼 🎖 The real MVPs are those that fought through the difficulty and continued strong even after there was no way to comeback. Thank you to the mods in creating the event. I would like to see a rematch of some sorts and adjustments made to make the experience next go round smoother.
