Most of you have probably heard of the "Madden Curse," where players featured on the cover of the Madden NFL series of games have tended to suffer some kind of big injury, see a significant drop-off in production, or experience major personal problems. Here's more info if you haven't heard about it:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madden_NFL#Madden_Curse
Anyway, did you know that Warlight has its own version? Many of you have heard of the prestigious Poon Of Our Ngenyanga (P.O.O.N.) award, where the Poon Squad honors an outstanding player each month. We've now passed the year mark of giving out this award, and have had 12 different winners over 13 months. Of those 12, 5 have disappeared under circumstances with varying degrees of mystery. Let's take a look:
March 2015 - Monsi
One of the original members of the Poon Squad, and one of the best, most active players on Warlight. Suddenly, around October, he started getting booted more often, and disappeared completely around November. He came back on Christmas, but was never as active as before. A few weeks ago, he silently disappeared again.
August 2015 - ieatpubes
Once called "the god of 1v1" by OxTheArtist, and was known to play in 50-60 games at once. Had to quit Warlight cold turkey in February to focus on his demanding real-life job.
September 2015 - Chris Peacock
The one-time winner of the Poon Squad Promotion/Relegation league, the first winner of the award since we changed the name from "Poon Squad Member of the Month," and one of the best all-time Warlight players. Had to quit a couple months ago to focus on school. Is currently a member of the Fizzer Appreciation Group, but is not active.
December 2015 - Jesse906
Vanished. He was a dedicated Poon and a skilled player. He once got his multi-day game count into the 70s. But 44 days ago, he just stopped showing up.
January 2016 - EvanHitman
A true work horse of Poon, he announced this morning that he would be taking a leave of absence.
Anyway, have a great weekend!
