    Somewhat of a farewell...

    Hi everyone. This is a rather long post, so bear with me. But before I get to the main point, Iím going to tell you a little story.

    2 years ago, I was listening to the radio, when I heard the DJ say Iron Maiden had a mobile game in the works. I remember being incredibly excited. Flash forward to summer of 2016. Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast was available to Maiden fans worldwide. I canít recall downloading any other game that quickly. First impressions were fantastic. A solid RPG, built around the best damn heavy metal mascot ever, Eddie the Head. I felt like an ecstatic little kid. I vividly remember my first ever 5 star: Visions Eddie. I thought he was amazing. It was only until a short while after that I found out he was infamous for being cow-milking Fín VE on the forums. I was determined to cling to him. He reigned as my champion for what felt like ages. He was somewhat recently sacrificed, near the 1-year anniversary of the game.

    Now, to the main point. Itís not something I imagined myself saying, but Iíve thought long and hard about it, and made a decision. Iím putting Scone-8461, my main account, the one Iíve been playing since launch, to rest. Iíve made some really stupid decisions as of recent, like sacrificing VHE, Mystic Eddie, the Birds, and Edward the Great. Couple that with the pattern this gameís been following (Events, buff/nerf updates with fuck all content, followed by more events), I put Scone-8461 out with a bang. I said goodbye to everything: my hard-earned and sentimental Eddies, Bastion, my Magus Chopper (which I nicknamed ďJoelĒ), and my Clairvoyant. The only thing left is the Grim Reaper himself, or rather GRE, to symbolize the accountís ďdeathĒ.

    However, Iím not done playing. Last week, I decided that I needed to breathe some new life into my LOTB foray. I started up an alt account, Sc0n3-8222. My new adventure began. Iíve already earned Mystic Eddie and the Witch Doctor. Iíve already made some stupid decisions, like sacrificing Eddie, Wicker Man Eddie, and Soldier Eddie, but they didnít go in vain. Iíll take my 2 5-stars. Iíve made steady progress through Underworld. I plan to nab GRE, play Night City/all new playable content, and do everything I did on Scone-8461, but with a new account. For any of my troopers on my old account, feel free drop me and/or add me on my new account.

    TL;DR: I terminated my old account with a bang, and started over. Was it a stupid decision? Yes. Do I care? No.

    Sometimes even the best of us need a refresh to keep things interesting. I've considered restarting as well but I'm sitting on so many materials that it would be a shame to let it all go. Next time I'm in I'll definitely add your new account.

    Starting anew was a good decision, couple of months ago I made some terrible decisions with sacrifice etc. aswell. Request sent.

    We have cheated death and he has cheated us

    But that was just a dream and this is what it means
    We are sleeping and we'll dream for evermore

    I still can't understand why anyone ever sacrifices a non-dupe Eddie...

    .. especially any of the default 4 knowing that you can't get them back and at least 1 of them will be needed to complete missions later.
