------ Your Creed Life ------
[Originally posted on Discord - but no relocated entry posting on forums for better character limit]

Hello everyone, it’s time for a contest. Basically, it’s to write about your Creed life/journey and the best ones will be rewarded with prizes. Genuine, interesting stories are what I am looking for.

Post your stories here in one single post

Things you can talk about: -

  • How did you encounter creed
  • How long have you been playing, have you quit before? If so why did you decide to come back?
  • What has been your highlight?
  • What made you happy on Creed?
  • What is your goal on Creed?
  • Any regrets? Bad trades that ruined everything? Did anything bad that you wouldn't have done again?
  • Will you let your children play Creed in the future?

Please note the above are just ideas, you talk about anything as long as it's creed related. Troll or fake stories will easily be spotted. I am interested in the story rather than the presentation. As long as it's readable I do not care about punctuation or spelling

Please only post your stories in this thread and nothing else. Any questions or discussions should be talked in #zapdos-chit-chats on discord.

The contest ends in a week or so. A definite time will be announced later!

Of course for prizes, you can enter for the prizes, or simply to share your experience. But the prizes will be of course be worth the time.

Heyo everyone, !
I'll put a small disclaimer here saying that this may actually just feel like bs lol

Spoiler:

I'm glad that Creed was a part of my teenage, it feels nostalgic whenever I login because of the sheer amount of time I've spent on trying to get self-created achievements that nobody really cares about. I'm glad I got this chance to bring some of that bs to limelight. I started playing after a lot of the active community had left, so I only had a small circle of acquaintances (mostly because I didn't even know how to interact properly) and a lot of free time that wasn't really going to good use. It would be a bit boring to talk about big 5050 wins or training goals or say the best userbar/signature I created, because when I started off, those were some major ways people enjoyed the game. Me, in a typical edgy teen phase wanted none of it. This is a small snippet of an edgy lil teen who was looking for his own grinding "fun" in Creed.

You see, fighting the dude in the dark alley with a bunch of junkhead robots to raise your favourite coloured mon to the highest level in game was too normie for me but I still enjoyed the battle grind coming from a bunch of other online rpgs. So, I started snooping around what else we could gain from grinding battles all day long. Leaving experience points out, cash was the other obvious reward you could get but the direct cash you get scales off of the level of the mon you kill and the dark alley dude was very inefficient for farming cash. The other non-obvious reward to farm would've been coins you'd get from the captcha, but you'd only get 1-5 coins that time and it would require you to enter text so another slow inefficient method. Add to that "who even cares about coins" as a reason so I stay in my edgy character. Neither of this embraced the idea of consistently being able to grind the same thing for a set underwhelming reward with no sense of accomplishment other than the number of hours you've sunk into it. That was my image of grinding, that was the kind of fun I wanted to have. A mundane exercise to just pass time because I just had that much free time in my life. It didn't feel like battling would be a grindable thing, so I moved to trying out stuff like maps, dungeon, scrambler and fishing; all of which didn't engage me enough. I would continue to do other things until I realized that there was just one more non-obvious unimportant super duper absolutely cool thing you'd gain from battling pokemon - clan credits.
What's the big deal with credits? Firstly, it has very limited usage and you cant trade it with people so it's account bound. Secondly, there is no other way to obtain them other than fighting pokemon/trainers over and over. These two make the grinding dream plausible, but the final nail in the coffin is the existence of the credit cap that existed in the battling system. Any pokemon at or above level 2000 when defeated yields the same amount of clan credits [409026]. This means anybody could do this as long as they are able to kill a pokemon above level 2000. Anybody can do it and hence, the time spent doing that 'easy' thing gains value, it works as an achievement. When I realized that this could be farmed, I felt a surge of excitement that only me, as a kid who wanted to have a fun grinding experience in creed could feel.

After that point, I started grinding like crazy, I'd gathered well over 200-300b cash that went to multiple places like Casino City's clan vault, safe donation to the bank and just spamming the hell out of buying mart items lol. I was even considering grinding for ultra balls to have the most of them in game but 6m felt too large of a number and I got distracted more by the fact that I could buy random swap pokemons for a measly 3 battle worth of credits. So well, the edgelord in me kicked in and I got a hoard 100k random swap mons. The worst part about this hoard was that it would just hang my browser if I tried to send any pokemon or make a trade or even just open my box page, so I had to get them out of my account to somewhere that I wouldn't access a lot. Also, you could only trade your first 5000 pokemon (iirc) from the box so I had to load the trade page multiple times to just transfer pokemons, that was huge amount of time there too, which was only worsened by me accidentally sending over a rainbow pokemon to the storage account for which I had to send all of them back and forth once more. It was a very dumb idea but hey, I was at the peak of my grinding and my time finally had some value, it was time well spent. I'd also grinded a lot of points from battle tent and hangman, but it was just so easy to lose currency through 5050 it didn't last long. All of this feels so dumb to me right now but I used to hold that hoard with pride, it stroked my ego and I could feel good about myself. Idk if there's any sort of learning I've had from this but I just wanted to tell this to someone to just satisfy my younger self and I think he'll be happy knowing his grind was compiled and cemented somewhere.

This may not have been worth your time, but it's true to my grinder's philosophy of time having no value. Thanks for reading!

Hi everyone,

Before I start this, I just wanted to thank everyone for the warm welcome. I know only few remembers me. I am very happy about the timing of my return. There's already a lot of players being more active, a lot of contests and promos gradually became active again. When I came back, there has been a few changes that I am not familiar with and I am quite happy and quite disappointed with 2 specific updates.

First, it is about 50/50 trades. Before I quitted (I just can't remember what year it was), 50/50 trades is still on Creed, and it was actually the main reason for me to leave. I lost all my pokemons including my training team (Level 9,999 Colored Golurks with exactly level 999,999,999,999 exp. and Level Transfer is not yet available by that time). I am really glad that it was removed.

Second, it is really about the Level Transfer feature. I am quite happy and quite disappointed with this update. I understand the main purpose of it, for easier training for other people, and I am happy for it. I am just quite disappointed because with that, you can easily get pokes with all digit's the same. I thought that pokemons with cool exp could save the rates of the unbase pokemons but now, because of the Level Transfer, you can get that very easily. I also think that it invalidated my previous contest way back before I quitted since my prizes are Level 999 Pokemons with exacty 999,999,999 exp. But I am now okay with this since I think that only few people care about exact exps.

Lastly, I am so happy that I had won big contests. Just like what RKD said, I really came from rags to riches in Creed. It was really epic and I really cannot forget the feeling. I really appreciate every contest held here. The game really helped me relax from real life as well. All in all, I am really happy with the Creed Community.

That's all! :)

P.S.

I think only me and catcherpro were the only two to get Pokemons to 999,999,999,999 exp. without the Level Transfer feature so it is really a memorable time to me.

In case you are curious regarding the contest I mentioned and held before, below is the link:

A bit long, so click le spoiler tag to read.


Spoiler:
I had first discovered Creed at the age of 13 when I was browsing around on Facebook while procrastinating on doing my homework. I forget exactly how I found the FB page, but I think it was through recommended pages. I skimmed through the profile a bit, thought it sounded interesting, and made an account on the site.
Being a young kid, I wasn't allowed to add anyone I didn't know irl on my FB account, so Creed was actually my first experience with random internet strangers and it was really nice getting to talk with people who shared more interests with me since most of my irls didn't care about video games (or at least not most of the ones I was interested in). I ended up making several new friends over the years that I was active on Creed and I had a blast chatting and playing with everyone. There weren't that many toxic or "bad" players that I interacted with either, so I'd say it was a really great first impression.
It was 2014, I believe, when I joined my first RP on the forums and also where I met some of my closest Creed pals. I hadn't actually RPed prior to this, but I was a writer and decided to give it a try since it didn't seem all that different from normal writing. I ended up really enjoying it, and I'd even say it was probably my biggest highlight on the site. There was a pretty closely-knit group of us RPers; BlueLink, Umbreon, Tman, and NessUnderling, just to name a few of them, and I'd say that our RP shenanigans were what made up like 70% at least of the forum activity back in the day, but we all had a blast. I have a lot of fond memories of us staying up until like 3am just RPing about random stuff and even have a few docs saved of some of my favorite RP moments. We all stayed together until the RP community as a whole quit in 2016 and I unfortunately lost contact with most of them from that point so we haven't spoken or anything in quite some time. Despite that though, I still cherish the memories we've made.
Outside of RP, the other thing that I have fond memories of is the old Blab chat that Creed used to have before the Discord server was created. I still have so many screenshots of just hilarious things that happened in that chatroom and used to have so much fun joining and chatting with folks. I like the Discord server, too, but it just doesn't capture the same old feeling of the old chatroom and I kinda miss it sometimes, but that's entirely nostalgia talking.
Regrets-wise, looking back, I honestly think I was REALLY toxic back then and that's a huge regret of mine. I was kind of a controlling jerk at times in my early RP days (but I got better later) and I was also kinda mean to people in the chatroom at times, which resulted in me getting chat bans on multiple occasions. So if I could change one thing, it would be to go back and be nicer to people.

I've been on Creed for almost 10 years now and overall I've enjoyed being here. I started with really no goal in mind and even now really don't have one; all I cared about was having fun. I like collecting my favorite Pokemon and colored Pokemon with cool sprites, but I was definitely more adamant on collecting as many of them as I could and training them up to be high levels back when I first started versus now. I took a break from the site back in 2016 (due to all my friends leaving and activity dropping) and came back in 2019 (due to nostalgia) but don't really do a whole lot on the site anymore, although nowadays that's mainly due to me not having as much time as I used to. Despite that, though, I still do have quite a lot of sentimental attachment to the site, so I don't think I could ever fully quit. As corny as it might sound, this site was a huge part of my childhood and I love this place.

A short journey through my creed life !


Spoiler:

So my journey started on October 30, 2010; my first account was crater freak (7045). I was introduced to this game by MadGod (previous creed spriter) who was my class mate . I started this game because pokemon was all i thought about & i was looking for a good pokemon game . I played a game named ?TRPC something like that but a big NO!!! If anybody ask which games i have played for more than 2 months,I would say Pokemon Creed and GTA ViceCity. Thats the amount of affection i have towards this game.Being a single child when i was introduced into this game i was exposed to a very big part of the world,I made many friends and many enemies. I learned alot ; How people are , How people can be & How people shouldnt be . I miss alot of people & honestly wish they come back & have fun like before , but everyone have their own life to fullfill.The main reason why i got attracted to creed is its sprite itself , such a beautiful creations and still i try to keep all the good sprites. I even have a folder in my old pc with all the sprites so that i can print it & paste it in a book .

If i am not wrong my first promo was L.Dialga from GC during the Christmas for 30k coins .YES ! ! I have seen all the phases of creed. Highest level those days were nobles 200 level C.abs & Marvstas 180 level blissey . I still remember dreams blissey & his clan because that was my first clan , he only allowed clan memebers to train against his blissey . From then the craze for trainig started. Me & madgod used to pay coins in DayCare breeding to level up my spiritomb & his charizard . I have seen the level booster , the tripple & double xp ,changing of baby lugia to golden lugia (hurts the most), coloured tower keys, fishing contest, battleship war, clan war & many more.

Initial stage I used to be a stupid ,arrogant & selfish player. Hence got banned many times due to mine and others deeds. First ban was for account sharing , people miss understood me as madgod and that made a big fuss. I had to send 150+ email over 1 month to get 1 respons from da man.My second big ban was for another account sharing. You people may remember cyprum. He hacked my account took all my stuffs & with zapdos help we found banned him. Later on we became friends & we started to pool in pokemons to an account I made inorder to buy SHADOWMEWTWO(Yes, the main reason for me to hunt a S.Mewtwo is this revenge story). He logged into my account & I got banned for account sharing,that was back in 2011/2012. I rage quit,cursed all mods & left the game.Tried to play many creed copies , become a staff member but meh;the josh that i got from creed is irreplaceable .Creed was a part of my childhood & adolescence, i felt a blank in my life when i took that big break , i used to check creed time to time but the feeling of betrayal made me not to come back. But by 2014/15 i kept aside my ego & unwanted thoughts & started again .By that time 50/50 trades were at its peak. I made alot & lost a big trade having C.Ray, C.Arceus , L.Froslass , L.Palkia , S.Lugia & more good stuffs against type tests L.Gira. Rage quit again and left for 3-4 years.(I decided to collect back all the stuffs i lost that day & currently all that remain is that l.froslass)

I got into medicine college & got busy with my life but i kept checking ones in a month and decided to come back when i finished my final year (2019/20) .I started with an ub G.Ray & made my current box!! I should say this;creed community was both Welcoming & Toxic .But now its purely welcoming because the active players are all 20+ & even in 30's . Well when i came back i again got banned saying i proxied . it was very dark in that ban channel with mods & vanishing messages for 2 months.Thinking about those makes me smile,how long i went. So I did got banned for duping when creed was dead , which was the only thing i think i did from my side , Pleaded scot and after some months he unbanned me . I did changed alot thanks to many people.

I have seen a lot of contests like from Blab , forums to discord , from R.mew2 to l.absol.The biggest win for me was Da Mans art contest were my c.cubone & c.shellder was selected as promo ???? & i got the gfx userbar.Another moment was unlocking the bug catcher userbar; from Da Man himself .Yes i do have a story about l.Absol .L.absol was mathew gawds (mewtwoo2000's , mod poke ) he was a naughty child back .He gave one l.abs to me which is currently in l33t. I sold it for a level 2k G.Ray (the biggest regret i have in my creed life).I have many regrets,like selling g.gira for a r.mewtwo,l.snorunt for c.moltress.

There was this incident were iRazzels hacked every single mods including daman and dualot. Later on i heard he was arrested ,idk if thats a wide spread rumour or truth,but i still believe it is a truth .
I have achieved my main goals in creed within the last 3 years ; train myself a 100k level , got unique pokes.The remaining goal is to get that l.abs back from l33t , get a c.ambipom and get a rainbow ninetales!! Also if at all possible become atleast a chat mod.

I want creed V1 to stay forever. If at all a point comes were creed has to be dropped, i will support the game financially or any way i can,cause like i said ; creed is a part of my life. I even talked with some of my creed friends that when we grew old lets play creed and the then available nintendo game togather ???? .I have alot of memories left to write but writting down 12yrs is a bit too much.

I personally thank dualot for giving an opportunity to express my deepest feeling towards the game.
Thankyou !
