I know I am basically a nobody on this forum, but for what it is worth, your attitude is commendable.
As for your Warstory, I didn't read it all, but I did watch it on the replay player and I have to agree that it was very haxy. Still, it was very well written and it looked like you put a lot of time and effort into it. I actually hope you don't get put off from the negative responses you received. Just roll with the punches and maybe write a warstory using a better battle. We need more warstories, and I think you could write a great one. Anyways, I am rambling. I hope you keep posting and have a good day (or night).
