Your name and surname. Uta Haertel. The name of your League? The name of our League is Blood Diamonds. Yes, that’s it. Really? The interview is over. Very well. My name is Angelika Arnold. I also have a pretty cute name here in Stormfall and in the Blood Diamonds League. They call me a hamster because I’m small and snappy. I am Garry Paskalwis, and I have been playing with the Blood Diamonds for approximately 3 years. It’s fun for me. I started playing the game “just for fun”. I checked it out, and I enjoyed it. I was in a couple of different Leagues, but I didn’t like it there. Too many arguments and so much anger. But here everything is in place. So my name is Margot Gross. I play with the Blood Diamonds, and I’m the Captain here. I was introduced to the game by a friend of mine who I used to play iSkat with. He kind of forced me to play it. He said, “Play until level 15, so I can get a reward”. My son started playing the game when it got available on the Facebook platform. And I asked him “What are you doing?” and then I started playing very carefully and I really enjoyed it. And I am still playing. For almost 6 years. My name is Ronnie Shulz and I’ve been playing with the Blood Diamonds for 3 years now. People quite often tend to underestimate us. Some Leagues tried to defeat us but failed. They thought they could smash us, but when push comes to shove we are all there to fight. Even if we’ve been idle in the chat for 100 days, when it comes to a battle, our weapons are at the ready. 5 interesting facts about this League? Well, I love the sense of humour this League have.
We joke a lot in the chat. For me, the life of the League happens in the chat. If the chat is out of service or if the chat is dead, the League is dead, too. We are a dedicated community. And that makes the Blood Diamonds unique. Because on many other servers chats are dead. Sometimes you have to mute the chat of the Blood Diamonds to keep it quiet. What keeps us together? Well, the joy of playing the game and the shared desire to do something useful for our League. You do not play like a lone fighter; you play as a part of the team who try to do something good for the League. We have a common goal. When the crunch comes, everyone starts following the chat and is always there, when it’s needed. And that’s what makes playing interesting. You don’t have to write or be active all the time. Otherwise, the chat will get a bit flooded. But if you need someone, they will be there. Maybe too late but still there. If you’ve got to know people from the League better and you happen to have personal problems, they will be there for you. That makes our League simply unique. That we are all a little crazy. We are a small and crazy League; everyone in their own way. And yes, that keeps us together. Sometimes we wind up each other a bit, and it’s also fun. We have people from Denmark, the Netherlands, and other countries in our League. You can get along so much better with people who you know personally. You can tell for sure if they are being honest with you or not. If you only text with each other, you can only assume if they are sincere with you. But if it’s a person I can meet and talk to, or a person I have spent a couple of hours with, then I can tell for sure. I know the guy. What is interesting is to meet the real person you have been chatting with in the game.
And just to have a nice evening, laugh. And it is also interesting… to give an interview. Because we’ve been playing together for so long. We tried to get together years ago. And now we have finally made it almost after 6 years. It is really exciting. Just to meet and get to know the people here better. To enjoy the gathering and leave a good impression. To have fun with the guys today.
