First Castle Defense Experience

The other day, I participated in my first castle defense. I was at Goddard along with my clanmates at Infinity and the other alliance members, setting up positions within the castle. It was a surprise to know that there were only 2 of us from the academy that was there. The others may be in hiding because they don't want to lose their precious exp points.

I knew that the battle would start at 8 PM and was very excited. Unfortunately the worst happened. The time came and I got suddenly disconnected.

I immediately went to work to restarting my PC to get back into the game. When I reappeared I was with the Goddard Castle Teleporter. I then read on the Alliance chat that the throne room was being attacked--the enemy got in!!! I raced to the throne room and it was swarming with opponents and their alliances. I was very surprised to see so many characters in one place. Probably the same reason why it lagged like hell as well.

Eventhough it would take damage, I jumped from the balcony straight to the the location of the Seal. Unfortunately, an Orc hit me and I died right there and then. I was expecting to be revived in the throneroom but was surprised to see myself in Goddard Town. The castle was lost!

Our Clan Leader Jercouzen then reorganized us to attack the castle-wave after wave. Unfortunately on my third time the disconnection again happened. This time, there was no going back. My ISP said that they were repairing the damage but it would take time. There was a strong rain outside and could not leave my family.

It was only today that I knew the castle was permanently taken over by our foes. Trash talking was all over the forums today. I decided not to post there anymore as it would further enhance the flame surrounding that thread.

Yes, I lost 25% of my exp that night but it was something I'll never forget.

^^ Glad to see the person I recruited is so committed. Too bad I was working and anyway I have left Infinity (not due to being afraid to lose exp).

Next time during siege, u can buy a scroll to prevent exp lost.

Thanks to you I became a part of history. Too bad to hear that the one that got me into the clan has left. Nevertheless, I bid you good luck on your endeavors and may we see each other in-game soon.

I was talking about the majority of the academy that didn't appear when I spoke of those who were afraid to lose exp. points.

Yep, I'll buy that scroll next siege.
