Once again, members of the VIP council got an amazing gift from Glu. We actually got many awesome gifts, but this was THE gift. I'm both extremely grateful and honored to be among the lucky few who get to sport their own created legends!
Once I got word of the arrival date, I was a little more than a tad excited. And anxious. I kept refreshing and refreshing. Each time, I'd go straight to my inactives list, which was sitting at 72/75. Early this morning, I happen to notice that it read 73/75. OMG, it's here!!! I kept scrolling and scrolling and ugh. I was soon reminded that I had just pulled Kris Davis just minutes prior from a CvC match. False alarms can be cruel.
I felt like 2-3 days passed, but apparently, it was about an hour. Or so the clock claims. Anyways, I decided maybe it was a good time to take a shower. You know, change it up. A few minutes pass and before I could dry up, I grab my phone to check my messages. 'He's adding them right now.' WhaaaT! I quickly turn TSB on. Fortunately, being on android, I was able to get fully dressed before it finished loading.
Anyways, I go straight to my inactives again. 74/75. Oh boy, here we goooooooo! I'm scrolling and scrolling and almost at the very end or maybe it was the end. I actually don't remember. Either way, it was a lot of scrolling and BOOM! Hallelujah! Capped in all it's glory. Yes, capped! At d10, it read, 'Nikko Raiyu.' 535 hit/491 power? Man, that's way better than Scioscia! After that, it was a blur. I'm pretty sure multiple screenshots were taken and shared across many chats. I also remember restarting my app to make sure it was real. In hindsight, that made no sense. lol I also remember friends and club mates took turns congratulating me. I was one happy camper!
GLU did us a monster by capping our legends to our tier. Last year, I believe the council members had to level their legends on their own. Or at least, partly. Either way, with the lxp squeeze as is, many of us in higher tiers would've been SOL w/o help. And help they did! They left the skills at zero, but as you can see, mine didn't stay at zero for very long. Also, as agreed upon with my club mates, I'm no longer allowed to say that WoH is too easy.
A bit of background on my legend. Nikko is my 12 year old son and Raiyu is my 1 year old son. Hence the name, Nikko Raiyu. I chose a switch hitting SS with double late innings so I won't ever have to worry about chasing a WoH finisher. @snowy24
If you can share your legend, that would be great. I already peeked at your profile, but maybe you have a story to add. @Dpow14
, thank you so much! I really appreciate all the help and insight you've provided. In particular, thank you so much for being so considerate. You're awesome sauce! Also, if you can share your legend, I'm sure others would love to see him too.
Success and failure are merely two sides of the same coin.
