Today I finally sent out KVK role mails. I take my job seriously. It started last week when we laid out the plans for Round 2 vs k394 and k64. We are typically unified and since we started accepting all troops and stats for KVK the interest has only peaked. In fact we napped KE last week because we didn’t want to hear the, “I want to do KVK but I still have troops in the alliance hospital”, story.
Monday I started my KVK tour across k207 visiting at least 10 alliances to recruit. I use Mail All in every alliance to send a canned message – basic plan and roles I need to fill. This way the replies go to me and not the r5 of the alliance who then has to mail me the details. Things get lost in translation. I usually stay anywhere from 2 to 12 hours in each alliance. Most like to just chit chat and others ask for advice. It is fun.
I basically interview everyone who responds and ask them for availability – gold for ports to other kingdoms, troop counts, and preference. 99.9% of the time everyone who responds gets a role. I guarantee it.
Of course I use a spreadsheet! How else could I possibly review the massive data and organize it logically to ensure everyone gets a role based on their available time to play, troops, and general knowledge of the event? I use the spreadsheet for mailing templates. You can copy a row of cells and paste them in game – instant custom message!
It helps people to know exactly what is expected of them. We usually get a handful of first timers and even people that have participated in the past may have a new role this time around. Sampling below of actual mails. It takes several hours to format the data correctly but once that is done it only took me 30 minutes to send 45 mail messages. Individually. Makes people feel important when it’s customized.
On to the birthday celebration. I haven’t yet put together the secret post with videos that talk about some big thing. If you read my About ♡ Purls page recently you’d know already. The post is in draft format and it does talk about an early birthday present from GH.
Speaking of, here he is in action. He knows I dislike being the center of attention. I also dislike birthdays … so of course he went into KC. He also blew up Line Chat in every room we share … love the man.
Best. Husband. Ever. He went out of his way to make me feel special. I appreciate it as much as I dislike it lol.
Overall a good day.
