Being unbanned from the pilots/players page (Thanks Kenneth Hicks) was a revelation. I’d been writing blind for a while, blind to the opinions of other pilots in the Mecha Galaxy.
Why was I banned? Well I’m known for being opinionated and maybe I said a few things I shouldn’t have. But, hey that’s me and I served my time. That’s all I’m going to say about that.
So, time to pick up on a posting about ‘How do you become a Legendary Pilot?’
It’s a great question and has been answered by ‘Do something special that you will always be remembered for!’
Guess I should be legendary for serving the longest ban from the players page to date!
Joking aside what does qualify you for the ‘Legendary Pilot’ Status? Well, no-one really knows. Brian D Wise who started the thread has 400+ Medals, 8 of which are KOTM golds. He says ‘you would think i should have qualified by now at least’ but clearly he hasn’t.
As for myself I posted the facts that… I have 32 x K.O.T.M. Gold Medals & 18 x Clan Wars Gold Medals. Add in that I helped edit and write for the Mechanomicon and I write for the Galaxy Gathering. I’m not legendary and it hasn’t concerned me in the slightest as I Don’t see myself as legendary! I haven’t bothered with my total medal count before but decided to tot them up to find out how many I had for this article….560 Total Medals to date!
Not a bad haul at all! But i’m not the only pilot with some impressive medal hauls. John D has more KOTM Golds, Daniel Chung has more total Golds for KOTM and CW (yes you should get the Legendary Camper award!) and Yan The Flame is in the same boat, beating me for overall golds in KOTM and CW.
So, if none of us are legendary then I guess we just haven’t done anything ‘special’ enough to have made any of us legendary. Nick’s answer is to ask Ambrose Cogsmith but I don’t think anyone should just ‘ask’! Legendary status should be earned! There should be someone out there who nominates you for something special, something that makes you stand out from the rest of the Mecha Galaxy crowd. So, maybe it’s time to get out there and EARN a legendary status rather than just ask for it. But that’s just my opinion…
