Definitely Not Vince
July was indeed an action-packed month for our featured player: Vince. He celebrates his birthday July 22, exactly 20 days after his spectacular victory on July 2nd, Saturday. It marks the day our [Payon] second Blue Burning Helm was claimed by our birthday celebrant. This was the second time he chased after the elusive crown and it all paid off.
This humble hero started just like every rags-to-riches story ever began. When asked about his modest beginnings, Vince had nothing to say but being vigilant and staying grounded were keys to his achievements. "I was just a farmer then, hunting for items like Costume Coins and selling them for a profit. That was how I managed to start building my equipment in the game". His story with our beloved savepoint started out when he was just visiting the Payon Common Grounds, our usual hangout spot. He was not initially part of the Team but his younger brother was, Fred, who recruited him.
"I was officially part of the team around January 2014, roughly the time when Payon won our first crown" he said. His dedication to the team was surely acknowledged and he was promoted as part of the Payon Core Team, those who represents Team Payon in most affairs. He expressed his feelings of appreciation to those who stood by him throughout his campaign. “Yung mga kasama ko na tinuturing ko ng kapamilya ko at kahit na hindi pa kame nagkikita kita-in real life, sobrang laki ng tiwala ko sa kanilang lahat. Pano pa kaya kung magkita-kita na kame diba?” he said as he anxiously awaits the upcoming Annual Payon Grand Eyeball.
When given the chance to be a candidate for Guild of the Month competition last January, he never thought of any higher honor. He had to face the odds and battled out with his brothers-at-arms, the Knights of Rounds, against Al De Baran's Inferno guild led by Dante Alighieri.
A true hero's story needs some setbacks too..
He suffered defeat, a recipe for creating his inspiring story. However, he gained a token he was thankful for even today, the Victory Wings obtainable only from Hijod Castle drops. “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,” he said on his interview upon winning his last Guild of the Month feat outlasting District 843 of Left Prontera.
His guild, The Godfather, played hardest on the early rounds of the match until the tides turned to their favor. This milestone will mark the halls of Payon’s history. The road to victory could never be easier as Vince had to suffer from a heartbreak in the middle of his struggle for the crown. Pain teaches us to grow, and so he did. He is now looking forward to extending his knowledge to those fresh faces seeking home in the Land of Archers and has this to say: “Advice ko lang is leap of faith at trust lang samin sa Team Payon kase di ka namin pababayaan once you decided to join us.. at kahit na sino at san ka pang savepoint galing noon, welcome na welcome ka samin”.
Of course, a true Godfather always ends his encounters with his blessings: “Binabati ko nga pla ang mga pogi kong mga kapatid sa Payon. Sila Nam(gay), Mandy, Loui, Louis, Kenn, Brix, Kevin, Fafa Berto, Mark, Nanami, Martin, Karl, Neal, Kenzo, Calvin, Jasz, Bok, Vhen, Argie, Cearic, Jonie, ang kapatid ko si Fredo(minty), Jess, Fafa Penn, Fafa Greg, Fafa Jumz, si Lemuel na d n nagparamdam, Abby, ate Kucchi, Fafa Glenn, Bok 2, Jerome1, Jerome2, Yves, Jai, Kyle, Jarbs, JL, at Fafa Rod at higit sa lahat sa gumagawa ng article na ito, Fafa Nico! Binabati ko rin pala ang Team HUGEL/ MALAYA/ RGEFF/ MGEFF/ SATIVA/ UPPRONT kung hindi dahil sa inyo guys wala ang BBH ng Payon kaya thank you sa inyong lahat specially to my Payon family <3 God bless us all!”.
From myself and Team Payon, congratulations and more birthdays to come, Vince!
