    Forum Friendships

    I was reading through the comments about a long time forumer that passed on last year and I noticed the outpouring of genuine affection and concern.

    What an odd thing this clash of clans game is. We get on here, complain and counter complain about goblins and barb kings, engineering and gemming, global chat and, of course, links to love gurus. As a forum collective, we seldom meet each other in the actual game and real life interaction between any of us barely exists.

    Yet the connections that some of us gain from this game, the genuine insights into human behaviour, the genuine attempts that occur here to connect on an international level, it is impressive indeed. When a forumer goes silent for a while, those of us that spend too much time here notice.

    I maintain a low profile, yet there are some of you I seem to interact with in forum posts as much as real life connections. I will give no list of my "Top Ten" forumers, as I would put myself in spots 1 through 8 anyway, but a comment of honest appreciation to all of you that rant on and rave on and clash on in these forums with me. You have escorted me through a most terrible Shakespearean lit class, four hours of library time last year, and even now frequent check ins to see who posted what.

    Keep being you, keep posting, and clash on, dear forumers.

    You truly are all valued. Thank you.

    Forget the top 10, I just want to crack the top 300. And don't tell me if I don't make the cut, I'll just tell myself I'm sitting at a comfortable #274

    But it is amazing how well I feel like I know so many people here, despite having never seen a single one of you in my life. Unless you count Lach's dab. I try not to remember that.

    The internet is a weird thing

    Nice post Op, I too prefer to lurk as working overnights tends to put me opposite to most people actually around me but acknowledge that downloading this mobile gaming app has had far far more positive results than I sorta ever imagined. It has given me thru these forums,clans,events and dare I say global a chance to meet and interact with clashers from around the world. Its ironic that quite a few of these people I have genuine feelings of friendships for and feelings of happiness or sadness as if they lived next door. Good luck in school, keep ending threads one comment at a time and maybe some time in the digital clash world we will cross paths and pass time chattering away in a clan somewhere on global or at a forum event....

    Indeed, it's a fun place. Even with my commitment to Reddit, I still hop on here every now and then to just lurk and read.
