I don't remember a lot about my past in DD but I sure as hell remember all the great times I've had with all the amazing people in the community since I returned to the game early this year. When I came back to the game I really thought I was going to play for a few days, get bored then quit again. That probably was going to be the case until someone I met in game invited me to the DDRnG discord and the rest is history.
My favourite moment ever was playing around with gravity and speed altering items that IHDC made for us (thanks again for that). We sat in a call for 12 hours at least, running around like maniacs on all kinds of maps, flying way outside the boundaries of the maps. We spent the last few hours on Lifestream Hollow PvP yeeting each other across the map with the knockback from our staves, complaining that Escev's staff had a faster animation every time we died to him. The word yeet has never been said so much in one call, my throat still hurt days later. Thank you Manyu, Jeol and Escev for the amazing memory and memories.
A close second had to be helping Lolzcoolcat get Ultimate Defender. The whole thing just devolved into chaos until one thing eventually broke all of us. I placed a warrior minion after trying to explain why they're the best minion in the game and within 30 seconds it got stuck running into a wall. We were laughing so hard that I had to leave the call to catch my breath multiple times. Thanks Washboard, Jeol and Lolzcoolcat for that one.
I have to say thank you to the CDT for saving this game, it is so much better than I ever remembered it. When you look back on a game you have played in the past you're often blinded with nostalgia and fail to notice a lot of flaws. Since I've come back to the game I've seen that the CDT actually made the game what my nostalgia goggles made it look like, a truly incredible feat.
And thank you to the events team for making all these interesting items over the years and setting up a fun time for everyone on your own free time. Gaia's is the best event item and if you think otherwise your opinion is wrong :). (Or maybe this upcoming item will surpass it, :eyes:)
