Sea of Talent

   Posted by: Ditrick_Capone    in The Mafia Connection

Ever wonder who is behind that name you play with in DW?  Everytime you log in and enter  the game you will check out posts of people in the clan forum or community forum.  But really, who is the real person behind that funny name?  Doesn’t it make you wonder?

Let’s say Feltash?  Ever wonder who he is in real life, he is probably just one of the many people out there.  I guess you are right, he is just one of those guys who every now and then invents a game for people like us to play.

In the realm of the dark warriors, the gender that we acknowledge is the player’s gender he choses when he first registers.  The age that we talk about is the game age and seldom do we ask for real life age.  Going beyond age and gender, sometimes we get intrigued by how a person composes his post.  If we are to analyze a post, we can have an idea of a persons background.

Some posts are quite obviously done by a kid, perhaps a 10 year old, some are from an old fart wanting some little intelligent exchange or some “emo” just wanting to rant.  Most of the posts that are fun to read are those in the community forums.  You’d see very articulate posts, very funny posts, artistic posts, and down right stupid and idiotic posts.  Who are these people you ask?  I asked the same question many times over.

As a clan owner, I normally would ask my members their background to see what position in the clan I can offer them or up to what extent they can assist other members.  In the past couple of years I have discovered that DW is a “sea of talent”.  I have met a lawyer from Malaysia,  a nurse from Canada, an officer of a big firm in the UK, a construction firm officer from Indonesia, a plant manager from USA, a very artistic person and excellent blogger, an IT professional from the Philippines, a car garage shop owner in Australia specializing in V8′s, excellent musician, retired army service man,   a college scholar, son of a mafia, the list goes on and on.

So why don’t you do this, next time a post gets your attention, send this person an email and simply connect.  You’d be surprised to know that the person that has been attacking you all night long is a very sweet and gentle person in real life.  Not so long ago, a known outpost pillager dropped me an email, we had a fun exchange of mails, this coming from a person I hated for stealing my outpost tokens.  We have been at it for the past couple of months exchanging attacks but we respect one another in terms of gaming and it was fun to know a little more about the real person behind the name.

So come on boys and girls…..

Have fun and make the most of your gaming experience!  Make more friends!  Cheers!

DW and my Sanity!

   Posted by: Ditrick_Capone    in The Mafia Connection

Why do you play Dark Warriors (DW)?  Whatever your reason, I offer you mine.

I am Ditrick Capone, I am one of DW’s clan owners who lead a pack of mobsters and I have been playing DW for over 2 years now.

My real life work is one that is pressure packed and very stressful at times.  To relieve myself of stress, I play golf.  Unfortunately golf is a sport that needs to be played during daylight and on the average one can complete the game in 4 hours.  What happens when you want to “de-stress” yourself in the middle of the night or during rainy days?  Well, the answer to this is DARK WARRIORS!  Yes, I have discovered that DW can be helpful in keeping my sanity in check.

What is it about this game that helps me keep sane?  Well, the format of being in a clan and meeting other members is an awesome experience.  You can make friends from all around the world, learn from other players their culture and develop friendship that can extend beyond DW.

Keep Sane! Play DW!

Well aside from that, I find it amusing to be somebody else in a make believe world.  As my name implies, I am a mafia in DW, well lost in the medieval times (I hope I got the era correct), I think we have been transported back in time.  That is another nice thing, nobody will stop you from coming up with your own theme.

Oh and to add to just making friends in the game, I think a “DW couple” turned real life couple.  Awesome that such thing can happen in the game.  We all have our reasons, I’d like to hear yours………………………….

So for me, I play to keep myself sane in real life and make friends all over the globe.  How about you? Why do you play?
