Wangxiang Wangxiang Tuxing View attachment 705 The New Year’s Next Island Celebration Global Competition is over, and while all the stakes were at the Sea Artists and their huge HOF potential, a surprise came from a bit higher up. It had the form of a Fire Drake Stalker that perished under the fire of Wangxiang Wangxiang Tuxing. As it’s only fair to be quoted again: “Challenge is a dragon with a gift in its mouth..” The Skeleton fanatics redoubled their efforts but it was all in vain, because none was able to reclaim the first spot. Wangxiang continued fighting hard against the drakes even after the competition ended, proving to everyone that he was dedicated to his cause and that the victory was well deserved, as was proven with an uber HOF the next day. View attachment 706 And fittingly, it was in the middle of a hunt that Wangxiang was informed about the Ceremony and the handing out of the hut’s deed, still carrying battle scars on his armor as he stepped into Club Neverdie to meet up with Enzo. The event was relaxed as is fitting for the island, with the two discussing their views on Next Island while healing some of the players that passed by. That is, until Next Island Manger (or Island as he prefers to be called) came in, dancing and cheering Wangxiang for his victory with people coming in to congratulate the winner. View attachment 708 After some small confusion, the three met again at Crystal Resort Beach Lodges, where they proceeded with the official guided tour of the Hut before Island had to leave to prepare for C.E.S. and the launch of Next Island. View attachment 707 It was the first time Wangxiang had won something in his long EU career, and was quick to declare that he would not sell the Lodge, but that he planned to keep it and put it to use. Still obviously itching for a fight, he took the time to pose for a photo with the head of the drake that got him the first place, assuring us that he’d do anything in his powers to control the Drake menace. Let him be an inspiration to us all.
