Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad they are adding things to the holidays. But this Contender suit thing for Day of the Dead is not my cup of tea. I logged on and bought one … then when I realized that I have to duel other people who are wearing the suits in order to get the achievement I said ‘screw this’ and logged back off. Sure, at some point a friend will need the achievement too and want to trade duels. (I probably should have bought one on Alliance too just in case … oops.) But I don’t care enough about random achievement points to bother with it until then.
In other news … I hadn’t taken the other obsession far enough yet, so I bought a print of Khmelnytsky to hang on my wall. Now he watches over my campaign for Cossack domination.
I walked into the main hall at Chernigov the other day and was greeted by this large gathering of Cossack colonels. Someone’s city is going to be in big trouble when this group shows up to start a siege.
