Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning: Player Fighting Breast Cancer Supported by Community

MikeBMikeB MMORPG.com Community ManagerQueens, NYPosts: 5,717Administrator Uncommon

On Warhammer Online's Badlands server players on both sides of the fight have put down their swords momentarily, changed their last names to PinkforTink, and dyed their armor pink in support of "Tinkerhell" one of the server's natives who is fighting breast cancer.

A short video of the event as well as a gallery are also available.

You can find out more information about the event as well as Tink's fight against breast cancer over at the Creekmore World blog.

It's always awesome to see the gaming community come out in support of one of their own (especially when it's on your home server, go Badlands!), and we here at MMORPG.com would like to wish Tinkerhell well.

[Thanks David Creekmore for the tip!]

    Empireheals... Tinkwithpink *facepalm*.

    Why did the Warrior Priest have to look like a moron?

    Anyways, this is a nice thing to do. I hope Tinkerhell (clever name, too) makes it.

    reminds me of praying for someone... a way to think you did something for someone without doing anyting at all for them.

    How many delicate flowers have you met in Counterstrike?

    I'm not your friend.

    I got a case of beer and a chainsaw waiting for me at home after work.

     It's called support.  It helps people remain strong throughout their battle with whatever they are contending with.  Knowing that people are thinking about you and hoping you get better can help just as much as medicine sometimes.  The will of the person fighting the disease can help fight it off better than you would think.

    This is really something a game that is dying shows how strong their community is, I love seeing stuff like this gives us hope for our communities

    I wish tink the best of luck I dont know her personally or even in game but any battle for your life is one that you need support for, I hope her friends can show her  how much she has to live for and she keeps on fighting the good fight

    This is one of those articles that is truly special. Because it's about a real person with a real crisis. It's not about good games vs. bad games, hardcore vs. casual, or sandbox vs. themepark. And it's about something more profound than the latest level you just achieved, or the  uber gear you just looted off a mob.

    It's about flesh and blood and reality. It's about the realization that all of us will meet our end, but while we are here we will  fight for every breath of life we can. It's about our ability to put  our petty differences aside and come together as one. It's about realizing that something beyond our desire for instant gratification is actually more important.

    This article touched my heart more than any article I have ever read on this site. Partly because my aunt passed away from cancer last year, July 31. She originally had breast cancer which surgery was performed on. The surgery was at first successful, but than slowly the cancer spread through her body over 5 year, until her body could take no more.

    The point I'm trying to make when talking of my aunt is that the doctors eventually came to the decision that her cancer  was  terminal. Even with this 'label' she alway maintained  the perspective that she was LIVING with cancer, not DIEING from cancer.

    I'm telling you right now, Tinkerhell, to look at life with that same perspective and attitude. Don't you EVER stop the fight. Do everything you can to embrace all of the good in your life. Blanket yourself with the encouragement of your family, your friends, your spirituality, your online community, and everything else that is so dear to you

     I promise you, if you look for positive ways to LIVE, than you will find them.

    Best of luck to you, and if you do read MMORPG.com and read this post, please drop me a message. I would be honored to be part of your support. 

    Don't hesitate for a minute girl. And remember, no matter how much life may seem unfair, don't you ever, ever, stop LIVING. . image

    Our spirit was here long before you

    Long before us

    And long will it be after your pride brings you to your end

    As a former badlands player who has since deactivated, I know Tinkerhell is a great player and a very active member of the community. Best of luck to Tink and seeing community like this almost makes me want to reactivate.

  • MorcelllMorcelll El Campo, TXPosts: 407Member

    Not only is it support to let them know you care, but praying does help.

  • elusivexelusivex santa barbara, CAPosts: 86Member

    Good luck Tink!  

    A man or "gamer" should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.

  • spookydomspookydom BristolPosts: 1,782Member Uncommon

    This was an uplifting read and wonderful to see a better side of a community for a change.  My thoughts are with you Tink.  You can do it.:)

    SMILES and green tea.  And maybe some pressed fruit juice. Thats all you need to survive cancer, or so I've heard.  Good luck lots of smiles and love darlin

  • MesfenlirMesfenlir ovPosts: 208Member

    A message from a spaniard war player:

     

    Keep on fighting Tink!!!! Dont let that bastard disease beats you! Burn to hell that cancer with your will and the help of those who appreciate you.

    Hope you get well soon . Mucha suerte amiga.

    I was not there in that SS but I did participate in the events and changed my last named and dyed my armor, It is nice to see that even though there is so much anger towards each other in game we are still human and can put our differences aside to support someone. I am an active player on badlands and although I do not know Tink I have a heart and no decent human being deserves to go through something like that and I hope that even though I didnt donate money or anything that tinker knows that I do care and I hope she can beat this illness. I thank everyone else who atleast changed there last names and dyed there armor atleast to show that you care.

    Hehe she's killed me I dunno how many times but it's all good.  Best of luck.

  • SuperHansSuperHans Donji MiholjacPosts: 87Member

    This is as pointless as pointless gets.

    I'm just cool like that.

    Lol breast cancer what mythic needs to do is to delete one of her toons since she plays a Dok and a Bright Wizard on Badlands and last time I checked cross realming is against the rule.

     Actually, they changed the game to allow you to have characters on both realms on same server now... learning to read helps a lot.
