I've been playing Toribash since 2012. Once I hit black belt, I was barely active, but one day I just wanted to break some toris, and I randomly started talking to this dude, Bloodrec.
And... he was really cool. It's kinda hard to make me laugh sometimes, but Bloodrec had it covered. I could see right away why he was in a clan called Satire.
We became good friends very quickly. Bloodrec is a good listener, and he's pretty wise for his age. After a few days, he was begging me to join his clan, even though I'm not the greatest Tori player. At first I didn't want to. I wanted to make my own way and get stronger on my own. I also didn't feel like I was good enough to be in a clan. But Bloodrec told me that Satire isn't about being the best player. It's a clan of friends who care about each other and have each other's backs.
That, I could relate to.
So I hesitantly decided to join and give it a shot, and was totally surprised to learn that Bloodrec isn't just a member, but the founder and leader of the clan. It made perfect sense.
And I'm really glad I did. Yesterday marked one month of being in Satire, and because of you guys, I'm active on Toribash every day. I've improved more as a Tori player in one month, than I did in five years of going it alone. I went from having a few blue colors to having a full blown unique tori that gets complimented almost daily. I have more TC than I ever imagined, from you guys buying my head textures. Now I'm forging flames and making 3D objects, and I'm more involved in Satire than I've ever been with any other group of people. You guys aren't just my clannies, you're my friends. I know you have my back, and when I have issues, I can come to you without worrying about being judged or having rumors spread about me behind my back. In the month I've been here, we've gone from rank #165 to #26, and I couldn't be more proud. I'm honored to be in Satire and call Bloodrec my leader, and I can't wait to see us in that #1 spot. Satire forever. <3
