    On Friday's eve January 20th, The Gold Diggers of Legends layed claim therein to the title and trophy of the cross shard treasure hunting championship; besting the Purple team and defending champions of Catskills. In a landslide victory the diggers won in grand fashion finishing well over ten minutes ahead of their rivals. With furious teamwork and precise tactics, the diggers took advantage of miscues and disconnects amongst their competitors en route to victory!

    Team Catskills ever gracious in defeat, resolved to finish their maps to the applause of all in attendance. Finishing the competition, the former champions congratulated those newly crowned, and wished them well in their first defense. Team Purple also requested the honor of a rematch if Legends is fortunate to hold onto the title for the forseeable future.

    All in all the night was a grand event to behold, win lose or draw everyone had a great time showed impeccable sportsmanship and represented their shard with great honor and humility. Both Legends and Catskills should be quite honored to call each team their respective representative! The Diggers of Legends enjoy the moment for now, for they know stiff opposition is forthcoming. They welcome any who wish to step forward and challenge their swiftness and cunning and look forward to the opportunity to showcase their skills, their team, and their home shard.

    Uhm... Didn't Legends go up against Great Lakes, not Catskills?

    Do they even proofread recaps of their events, or even bother to know WTF happened? :thumbdown:

    *shakes head* Um.... they were the "purple team"? WTH? Try Purple Llama's.


    Sad sad day for GLs.

    We don't even get respect when we are beat.

    *sighs*

    We have all had that friend who forgot all the details to everything we ever told them. We all came to the realization that they simply didn't care enough to pay attention and we stopped wasting our time with them. Fortunately that bad friend didn't charge a monthly fee to hang out with them.

    Then that somebody should go out of their way to fix the article ASAP and apologize to the Purple Llamas.

    Any bets on when/if either actually happens?


    UO needs its own Community Rep that actually knows WTF's going on.

    You know for a few moments I assumed I was crazy, that my own memory had to be wrong.....

    There's lots of good reasons to be optimistic about things but an error like this is weirdly demoralizing. Especially to the "purple team," I should imagine, and definitely to the shard who is quite proud of them and is not the shard named in the post.

    My sincerest apologies to the Purple Llama's. I did hastily scribble the recap and with both GL's and Cats EM's on site helping at the event,my brain blundered during the recap. The Llamas were a hoot to ride with and in no way meant to disrespect or dishonor them or thier shard! Edited version will be sent in this eve!

    I note that it is fixed.

    Many thanks, to you or to EA proper or to whomever it was.
