I wonder if the official site will do an article on THIS...

I don't think so -- and that's why I mention it here.

Decided to go to the Wiki and update Leviathan's new winning streak (36), and noticed something.

This week will mark a first in the history of Vana'diel.

Siren has been undefeated in Besieged since Treasures of Aht Urhgan has been released.

Sometime this week (it'll take two more cycles for it to do it, so probably sometime either Friday or this upcoming weekend), Siren will become (barring disaster) the first server in the history of Vana'diel to win TWO THOUSAND Besieged battles.

It stands at 1,996 now.

-- We interrupt this blog post to bring you a special rant. --

OK, FUCKERS!!  THAT'S ONLY THE FIFTH RMT TELL I'VE RECEIVED BETWEEN MY DYNAMIS RUN YESTERDAY AND WHEN I'VE BEEN ON TODAY!  GO TO JAIL, YOU RMT FUCKER SCUM!!!

-- And that's basically what I tell them before I blist and GM them.  (That one poster from BG was right -- they've really been upping the pressure during the Memorial Day Weekend.)

There's only one way to stop this.  No trial accounts on the main servers.  Trial accounts get their own server and an automatic transfer to the main servers once they shed trial status.

It took them, with 24 calls, precisely SIX MINUTES to send back the "multiple call -- thank you" post.

Now, returning you to your more peaceful blog post. --

Siren is only four wins from the magic 2,000.

I wonder if Square-Enix is going to give that server the props they deserve.  Probably not!

Looking over the list, Lakshmi and CaitSith are battling it out tooth and nail for the 2nd and 3rd servers, Leviathan fairly safely ensconced in 4th.

On the other end, unless Fairy has gained one more loss, there is only one server in all of FFXI which has lost the Astral Candescence 50 times.

Take ONE guess.  (The Asura Disease is alive and well, and they can go piss on themselves for it.)  Asura has 52 losses as of May 12th, when they secured loss #52.

Probabbly not, and we'll just go about our business of defending Al Zahbi anyways.

Update: as of 4am this morning we're at 1998 wins w/ Mamool Ja @ level 6. Win #2000 should come sometime this afternoon.

Starcade, now from Leviathan said...

Depending on where in the cycle you are.

I got 1,996 from the wiki dated 5/25, which would mean that 1,999 would probably be the end of that cycle. But it should come, basically, within the next day or two.

The whole point of making that post was the article that the main site did on the Apathy "victory" over Pandemonium Warden. A "victory" I still believe illegal and bannable.

If they're going to jump all over themselves to give false legitimacy to an illegal act, why not give real legitimacy to an act which is probably even more incredible -- not only 2,000 wins, but 2,000 CONSECUTIVE wins.
