New gold star milestones achieved
We have a clutch of players achieving new milestones in the number of games completed in the cause of The Fighting Warriors.
As a team, we recognise key milestones of completed games with gold stars displayed with pride within each individual’s team avatar. They start with a single star for 500 games completed building up to five stars for those with more than 2,500 team games finished.
We already have two with five-star Warriors, and now we have a third in the shape of ilpo from Ulvila in Finland.
Ilpo is another of our longstanding team members having joined the team back in August 2005. Many congratulations to him.
sonofander_pict from Recife in Brazil - already one of our two 5-star Warriors - has just become only the second team member to complete more than 3,000 games for the team.
And in recent weeks we have had four more players move beyond 2,000 games to attain the four-star avatars.
These are fisherboy2 – Ross from Vancouver in Canada; desmondvan – Matt from Victoria, also in Canada; our vice-captain earlkarjohn – Earl from Hampshire in the UK; and chesscommander from Dendermonde in Belgium.
Moving past 1000 games completed for the team and gaining a two-star avatar is sycv – Sidney from Sal in Cape Verde.
And we have three Warriors who have now attained their first star having completed more than 500 games for the team.
These are quid_pro_quo – Caroline from the UK; fisherboy46 from the Algarve, Portugal; and jurgmay from Bristol in the UK.
Congratulations to all of you.
Our Gold Star Warriors
All Fighting Warriors players proudly bear the team Avatar when they go into battle in the name of the team on the Gameknot website.
This is something that all team members agree to do as one of the conditions of being a member of the team. The avatar above is the one that all new members will display on the Gameknot site.
Many of our Fighting Warriors have been committed to our cause for many years and have racked up huge numbers of games in our name. We seek to recognise this through the avatar.

We have just one Fighting Warrior who has so far managed to attain the remarkable achievement of completing more than 3,000 games for the team.
This Warrior is our very own Bill Hardin who plays for us under the username Kudzu. He has already gone a step further by completing more than 3,000 matches for The Fighting Warriors - a true Warrior.
Bill joined the Warriors in October 2005 and he lives in Newnan in the US state of Georgia.
