Payon Plays Comeback to Stun Prontera, 3-2
The Prontera Post, July 2016
Payon’s Definitely Not Vince, The Godfather guild master, only had himself to convince that they were definitely not over yet minutes before the supposedly disastrous end of their Guild of the Month run, as a strong Left Prontera-based District 843 infantry laid waste to the battlefield, catapulting an impossible 2-0 lead for the GOM crown.
“Super duper happy, ’kaw ba naman mag-comeback ng gan’on ka-intense eh lalo na't straight win,” the Payon guild leader admitted. “Aaminin ko no’ng una, sumuko na ko lalo na nung 0-2 na ‘yung score. Pero sabi nga nila wag mawalan ng pag-asa. Lalo na ni Fafa Snoopt na siyang nagpataas ng morale namin. Kaya Bumangon kami at mas lumaban pa.”
Indeed, it was a complete turnaround of events as The Godfather crew clung for their lives like madmen on a cliff, but remarkably rebounded to steal the victory away from District 843, dismissing the Prontera squad in a nail-biting 3-2 upset to bag the July 2016 Guild of the Month title last Saturday, July 2, at the guild war arena.
“No’ng unang run ko po ang gusto ko lang po talaga magkaro’n ng VWing. Kaya no’ng natalo ako no’ng una, okay lang kasi nagka-VWing ako,” Definitely Not Vince recalled his previous campaign for the GOM throne, where his team lost to Aldebaran. “Pero this time, inisip ko gusto ko manalo para sa team Payon. Naniniwala po kasi ako sa kasabihang ‘there’s always a second chance,’ hindi lang sa pag-ibig kundi pati sa laro.”
Definitely ikaw na lang daw ulit Vince.
The July GOM championship kicked off with a semifinal round robin clash between the three qualifying guilds: The Godfather, District 843 and Yuno Troops, with the Payon horde easing through both of their matches, 2-0. Meanwhile, the Prontera army cleanly swept off their Yuno counterparts, 2-0, to seal a spot in the finals and face the Godfathers, who squarely thumped the Left Pronterans in the previous round robin match. In the finals though, Left Prontera showed no restraint and annihilated an anxious Payon troop, attacking from all sides to crush the Godfathers in two solid sets, 2-0, only one point away from clinching the tightly-contested GOM title.
The Godfather guild, however, charged forward to go all-out with nothing to lose by third round, and gained a leeway to break District 843’s positive streak, sneaking in a point, 1-2. A quietly distressed Prontera team further went downward spiral in the succeeding round, succumbing to their nerves that allowed Payon to force the match into a gridlock, 2-2. With full momentum on their side, The Godfather pushed their luck to the limits in the do-or-die fifth set, eventually subduing a downcast Prontera guild in a very unexpected upset, 3-2.

Upon winning the GOM tournament, Definitely Not Vince more than happily pocketed one “Champion” Expert Ring , 10 billion zennies, 30 megaphone and the azure burning helm, tailor-fit only for persevering, bonafide champions. “Susupport po ako sa running namin ngayon gaya ng ginawa nilang support. Give and take ika nga,” The Godfather commander said of his plans after the July GOM series.
“Ang masasabi ko lang diyan, magtiwala lang po sa’min, sa team. Magtiwala lang sa kapamilya dahil hinding hindi namin siya iiwan,” Definitely Not Vince added.
Congratulations to Payon’s The Godfather and Definitely Not Vince, our July 2016 Guild of the Month winners! Ciao!
