A Game of War Thanksgiving
Aspiring to be Thankful
This month we asked you our community what you were thankful for in Game of War. November is well known for eliciting thankful feelings, so TeamRealTips wanted to celebrate with you in our own special way.
So many times we see negativity in the community but just as often we see special moments. We wanted to instead take some time to really focus in on the things that make this community amazing. I was able to share with you in the original post some of the things I am Thankful for. However, in case you missed the Thankful November Giveaway, I will include it here as well.
What is Cinder Thankful for?
I have met so many people in the time I have played Game of War. Some of those people have taught me life lessons and more about who I am as a person and not always in the easiest ways. I have cried, I have laughed, and I have lost sleep but being part of this community will forever impact who I am. In the time I have played I went from a player who had no idea what they were doing to writing articles teaching other players how to play. I have made great friends and lost great friends. I am thankful for the lessons I have learned in this community and for the outlet the game has given me to truly learn what I am capable of doing. However, I’m mostly thankful for the people Game of War has brought into my life.
Of course, we wanted to hear from the community too. Another thing I am thankful for is the members of the community who took the time to comment and do so in the spirit of thankfulness. We have left names out of all comments in this article to protect the privacy of our community.
It was great to hear from some of our community. If you are not following us on Facebook you definitely should! Just click here to be linked to our Facebook page.
So without further ado. What were you guys thankful for and how has Game of War impacted you?
This November we are Thankful for Friendships
For some of our community, Game of War is so much more than a game but a place to be able to take a chance to rest and take a time out from the stress of everyday life. For others, it is in the friendships they have made.
“I’m thankful for the friendships I’ve made over the past five years 😍😍”
I am greatly thankful for meeting so many wonderful friends through GOW, many of whom I’m still in touch with and still playing with, so thank you ever so much.
I am thankful for all the people I have met along the way and my alliance that’s like a second family to me.
I am thankful for so many things. I have made lots of friends within the game (as well as enemies) lol. I’ve had good times and bad. Game of War is my go-to game and has been for 3 years now. Thank you Game of War.
This November we are Thankful for the Support from the Community
While we make really great friends while playing Game of War, the next comments are something that I love to see. The friendships we build in Game of War go from friendships to family. People who live on the other side of the country or even in another country become our support systems and oftentimes become closer than family. We celebrate with each other and we mourn with each other and that is what makes a family.
I am thankful for the friendships built. Thankful for the support given in game and in real life by so many friends during the last five years. The caring and love through my husband’s illness and death. Humbled by whole Kingdom paying homage to his passing.
GOW has given me so many new friends that I know I can call on for help, the game itself is one thing but when you link up with people from all over the world and share moments, help each other even though we never met face to face. Thank GOW for showing me there are still a lot of good people out there if we take the time to get to know each other.
“🙌I am truly grateful for the demi I’m in ESPECIALLY 😍 THE PEOPLE IN IT🙌love y’all ta pieces😘💋03/07/2018 my mom passed away as did a part of me.
😢So filled with loss and rage, the first thing I did was ask for forgiveness for my actions because I wasn’t sure on my reaction to the situation (they were so compassionate and supportive in many ways and times through it). Then the next thing I did was burn everything in sight so I’m also
🙌thankful for a place like GoW to vent and relieve the burden and stresses of real life🙌”
This November we are Thankful for our Alliances
Alliances can make or break the game. We continue playing because of the support of our alliance or leave because we did not make those meaningful connections.
I’m thankful for my alliance that even when I don’t have the money to buy yet another pack they still keep the faith In me. It’s a great family and wouldn’t want to miss them…
I’m am thankful for the new players I met in the Dragon War Dimension side. I’ve played for many years. Thought I knew the game but met new players and wow so much I did not know. Learned a lot in my present alliance smot 420! Many thanks to Smotpoker and all in the alliance. I would have to single out Smotpoker though from the beginning he would always help you in game. And even players that have been crushed by him and or us, help them to learn their mistakes. So yea some kool people.
We are Thankful for the Teachers we meet
So many lessons are learned in the time we spend in the Game of War Community. We are able to appreciate these lessons and hold them even if we do decide to eventually leave. We are taught these lessons by so many people. While some of these lessons are about how to play other lessons go much deeper.
I’m thankful for the friendships I built in the game. The people that taught me how to run as a rally lead. I was able to keep up before all the March size nonsense. I maxed old research and a few weeks later the silly changes started. I don’t play anymore, but I do miss the people quite often. The game was so amazing a couple years ago.
I have never ever played any games let alone online when I first started playing this game I was very shy and kept to myself. You hear about all the dangers of talking to people online.
I have learned to overcome my shyness and realized not everyone tells you a lie, I had to learn how to trust and believe in people that they are willing to help you. I have had more fun playing this game and have even shocked my children because they would have never believed there mother would play a game let alone talking to people online when I would tell them how evil it was. I have taken a different look at life and have met some very awesome people that I would have never met before because how shy I have always been, so I thank Mz for such a wonderful game.
I’m sure, such as yourself, many have met some really special people, made friends, and yes, maybe lost a few along the way. I am very happy to be a part of the Game of War community it has truly helped me to become a better person, in many instances a real leader and most importantly constantly being aspired to the higher levels of inspiration!! BRAVO, to you Cinder and Bravo to the community!!
This November we are Thankful for you
The community is what makes the game. The people are what keeps us going. Game of War has been around for five years and it has had its ups and downs but the things that make it worthwhile will last a lifetime. When it comes down to it this next comment sums up everything we all said,
I am thankful for the community!!!!
