Within every Region, there resides many individual players. While every person is unique, we all tend to fall into a “type” (or multiple types), which holds true across basically all Castle Building games. Today we are going to take a look at the types of players that make up WWR. Many players are combinations of these, so get ready to claim some badges!
We all know the Whales. They are the biggest and most recognized across the game, and monthly observation of the Whales can generally be seen at the ACP Event (please note whales are not always on display). When new things drop, they are the first to max them out. While many people like to mock the Whales for the amount of money they spend, let’s face it, they are a big reason the game is profitable and we get to keep playing. Appreciate your Whales, but have fuel handy for a bubble!
This player is always on the game. When they say they are going to bed, AC chimes in with “see you in two hours!”, which usually ends up being 20 minutes later before they pop up into Alliance Chat. Let’s be honest, they were probably there all along. Casual players also will turn into the 24/7 gamer during events such as Raid Boss Parade, Syndicate Invasion, and RvR. The 24/7 players are exceedingly helpful in sounding the alert when the casual player is being zeroed, and always finish every event possible.
The Casual but Well-Balanced at Life Player
This category encompasses a good chunk of players. These folks actually pay attention to their work in real life, and play after work and on the weekends. They tend to be low to mid-range spenders and fairly solid in their account. Conversely, they also tend to be the ones the 24/7 player is trying to get online while they are being zeroed because they are actually sleeping or out at a club. They also will log off to venture into the real world for vacations and NOT CHECK IN. Let’s be honest, that just sounds exhausting. I bet they’re just lurking and pretending to work, to be honest.
The Social Butterfly
The Social Butterfly mainly plays for the interaction and community. These are the players who spend large chunks of their day chatting it up in Alliance Chat and Region Chat. This also the type of player that spends lots of time on LINE or Discord playing with stickers and emotes (ok, that’s me. I have a sticker problem).
The Free to Play
Do you know a f2p player? Of course, you do because everyone knows at least one of these players! The f2p grinds hard (also may fit into the 24/7 category), and makes sure everyone knows their free-to-play status. They will wear their badge proudly, front and center. Let’s face it, many of us envy the free-to-play for their tenacity, and probably bank account balance. That being said, don’t be one of those free-to-play that whines about Region naps and acts like a Carebear. Protect your f2p investment and rock on!
The Region Troublemaker
Not to be confused with the Region Troll, the Region Troublemaker creates their anarchy with actions as opposed to words. These are the players you will find giggling behind their keyboards as they steal tiles, and swoop in for the last Syndicate kill hit. They also take delight in breaking any and all “rules” a Region may have set up. Are there six marches coming at you from four hours away? Yep, thank the Region Troublemaker. Often the Region Troublemaker is also a Trap looking for a good time. Alternately, they really just like to see the world burn.
The Region Trolls
Not to be confused with the Troublemaker, the Trolls spend most of their time in realm chat throwing the most inflammatory statements out that they can think of. Is it highly offensive? If the answer is yes, they’re on it. These are also the players you will find posting your own region’s cords in Kill Events. The block button is a useful tool against the Region Troll, as well as reporting them to the publisher if they are breaking Terms of Service. Or just don’t feed them! Don’t be the Region Troll. I call KC word vomit for a reason.
The Continual Quitter
Let’s face it. WWR is like Hotel California. The Continual Quitter tries, oh they try… but they can never leave. This is the player that seems to weekly send a goodbye email but then pops up three days later, their Base grows 25 levels and they win an event title.
Let’s face it, most of us fit into several categories. I’m a Semi Well-Balanced, 24/7, Social Butterfly. Where do you fall?
WWR Club badges will be virtually given away in the comments section!
