The year is almost over. 2019 is coming to a close and its a time where we all tend to sit back and reflect about the past year. For the final Time Capsule, we are going to read about everyone’s favorite Game of War memory from 2019.

Appreciating the Team
We all have our alliances that have our back through thick and thin, and here one player shows her appreciation for her team.
Looking back this year, What stands out is how appreciative I feel to have the opportunity to play with such an amazing group of friends in our alliance. Pivoting from being an easy target.. to enemies thinking… No … I think Not! … LoL. We are truly iron sharpening iron.. growing our accts through time and hard work.. and having a blast along the way.

Taking the Hits
This year in the game, the hits have been huge! While Demi’s side may be used to seeing big numbers, not everyone on Dragon is used to it. But, with risk comes reward!! Big hits can also mean a big opportunity to show your defensive skill.
The most memorable part this year for me was taking a hit from KITTY and almost capping. When I started Dragon Dimension I was in the hiv3 HIV training alliance. I’d watch KITTY battle for the wonder and win almost every time. I could only dream of taking a hit from her and not losing all my troops. Now almost a year later I’m in the same alliance and was able to almost cap a March from her. It felt amazing to be able to be in a war with someone I always admired… And not lose everything I had.
Do NOT Drink and GoW
We have all done it!! Well, hopefully just those of us of age. But sometimes mixing alcohol and Game of War can have interesting results.
I have been known to drink and GOW and it was one of those times. The end of KvK and a rally was called. I jumped. And what! “Can not join a rally in another Kingdom” my stomach dropped. WTH!!!
Somehow I managed to ancient port without noticing and was now stuck in a kingdom our alliance had just rampaged. My sweetheart Awe told me email alliance to see if anyone had a giftable port but stubborn me, I didn’t want to admit what a dumb move I had just pulled.
For two days I sat left in a kingdom waiting for the backlash while begging MZ for their magical ancient port! Funny thing, when I finally caved and asked if anyone had a giftable port in our alliances, I was home within minutes! This alliance has taught me more about watching out for each other, taking care of each other than any alliance I’ve been in. It’s one of the few alliances where everyone is made to feel welcome and at home.
Thank you, Asia, King, our resident badass TT and of course my sweetheart Awe for getting me home safe to my wonderfully badass alliance. And special thx CM. What a cool idea to time capsule our adventures here in this crazy GOW game

Sharing the Memories This Year
The one ironic moment from the year is when two players shared the same memory! Read on to hear each side of the story from their own point of view.
I’d heard a few folks had been burning to a certain 5k troop solo so figured if try it for myself. SW came around at just the right time, a chance to mix it with the best. Immediately set my sights on DarkKing as the current emperor and got him at the 3rd attempt after several different variations of core recipes and gems. It was honestly worth it just for the scenes in KC”
My favorite memory, or at least a recent favorite memory, is when I got burned out of the forest during Super Wonder.
I got a notification on my phone saying that my city was under attack, and then I logged in to see what was going on.
I had to go back and forth from city view to map view a few times before it showed me that I was actually on fire.
Once I saw I was burning I started laughing hysterically. The last time I was burned was back when Ctess still played and there was a dragon glitch, so this was funny and unexpected. I do give props to the guy that burned me. He managed to send the 5k troops while I was holding SavageArab’s dragon, which was good timing for him, bad timing for me!!
Saving the Best for Last
Sometimes you work all year and then it really pays off at the end. In this next memory, sometimes you don’t have to spend the most to place the highest. You just need a family around you that’s willing to stick with you till the end.
Our first attempt at Super Wonder just a couple of weeks ago. We went in not thinking we would be able to compete because 2 others had very high hero 3 levels. Once we realized that it was very difficult to defend, we decided to stick around for the long haul. We didn’t have a team of any sort outside of our own alliance set up and not really any experience at a super wonder event prior to it. Ended up finishing 2nd thanks to a great effort by our entire alliance. Only to turn around the following week and get first place in kvk for the alliance and individual.
Wrapping up 2019 and Our GoW Time Capsule
Those of you that know me, my most memorable moment was definitely the birth of my beautiful little girl. A little girl that I would not have if not for Game of War, because I met her daddy through this game!! Game of War has made a lasting impact on my life in a way that I never expected.
