Omg… I laughed so hard. Thanks for posting it.
Context in case anyone is confused:
Oh, and for what it’s worth - and I must apologise to Lyya for her amazing gowdb site, and to Tacet and Krudler for all their hard work with their helpful videos - this is THE best thing to come out of the community!
EDIT: OP updated to include Moderators!
@efh313 you are such a wonderful, talented human.
I am proud to bring you the latest Tunes of War parody! An homage to our beloved Lyya! Thank you @Lyya for everything that you do for all of us and this community as a whole!
Thanks to all who contributed ideas!
I hope you enjoy: Lyya
I met her in the forums of Gems of War,
Where you read through threads or you can post a new idea.
She reached out to me cause she saw I was knew.
I asked her her name and she explained it’s pronounced “Lee-ah”.
L-Y-Y-A Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya!
Well, I’m not the world’s most physical guy,
But I’ve seen her stare a Black Rhino in the eye.
Oh my Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya!
Well, I’m not dumb but I can’t understand,
Her icon looks like a woman but she smarter than men.
Oh my Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya!
Well, she has this troop hidden deep inside,
Emma Blightbane, The Herald’s Bride.
She picked my brain and slapped me in my face!
And said, "Your teams are weak! You need my database!”
Well, I’m not the world’s most knowledgeable guy,
But my teams are getting stronger and I know why,
Thanks to Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya!
Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya!
She’s first on the scene.
Vivacious and kind.
Even devs lag behind.
So they offered her a fee.
She looked at them, and said “It’s free.”
Well they know that we all want her to stay,
So they made a Moderator out of her, NO PAY
for my Lyya. ly ly ly ly Lyya!
Patches will be bugged, and bugs will be patched.
Nobody understands the plan the devs hatched,
Except for Lyya. ly ly ly ly Lyya!
Well I downloaded this a week before,
And I’ve never ever matched a gem before.
But Lyya smiled and took me by the hand,
And said, "Come with me, I’ll show you all I can!”
Well I’m not the game’s most dominate guy,
But I’ll keep unlocking Troops and I’ll always try
And so will Lyya. ly ly ly ly Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya!
Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya, ly ly ly ly Lyya! (ad nauseum)
This is the best thing on the planet ever. Thanks so much
Could you perhaps post the lyrics or maybe enable CC on the video @efh313 ? I’d really like to see it.
Lyrics coming tomorrow, maybe tonight if I can make it happen.
EDIT: Post updated to include lyrics!
Just scroll back up… you don’t really need a link… do you?
Teaser: The Soul Forge fiasco has inspired me, so be on the look out for the next Tunes of War parody… Coming Soon!!
Edit: I have updated OP to include Lyya.
Ah, memories! Back when we thought Design-A-Troop was coming the first time, a few of us (remember this, @RiverSong?) thought we’d shoot for a daemon huntress style troop inspired by Emma Peel, the Diablo 3 Demon Hunter, Bayonetta, etc. The spells we proposed never quite made it to fruition, but the spirit of the troop idea was eventually added to the game in the form of:
We had a emo backstory all worked out for her, too, but unfortunately that never quite made it into the game lore…
Of course I remember. Where do you think @efh313 got his information?
To be fair, remove the “a” and Shakespeare has already written a pretty emo story about Desdemona! Defies her father, runs off with a black guy, is generally a good person, someone convinces her husband she’s cheating, he murders her, he then realises she was faithful and kills himself etc. etc.
TWO PARODIES IN ONE WEEK??? IMPOSSIBLE…
And yet here we are…
This a tribute to all the members of the Pharos Ra Support Group. And a song of sympathy for any sufferers of RNG. I hope you enjoy: It’s Still RNG to Me!!
LYRICS: It’s Still RNG to Me!
What’s the matter with the troops I’m using?
"Can’t you tell that they all are white?"
Maybe I should open gem chests, baby?
Get some troops to improve my fight.
Where are Mythics hidin’ out lately, honey?
You can’t build Meta till you spend a lot of money."
Everybody’s talkin’ 'bout their new troops
Funny, but it’s still RNG to me!
What’s the matter with the Teams I’m sporting?
"Can’t you tell that they’re out of style?"
If I could I get my hands on ANY Mythic?
Then my scores will improve a mile?
Nowadays you can’t be too temperamental,
‘Cause AI cascades sure don’t seem coincidental…
Dev’s say, No Way, promising it’s fair play,
It’s still RNG to me!
It doesn’t matter what they say in the forums,
'Cause it’s always been the same old scene.
There’s a new troop in town,
But you can’t post about how you’ll never get him on your team,
Or trolls’ll spam your thread with memes.
How about a brand new crafting system?
Well that sure sounds good at first glance!
"You could even craft a Pharos Ra
If you just give it half a chance.
Don’t waste your money on a new Daily Deal,
We all got suckered by the Soul Forge spiel!
Don’t blink, Soul sink, I think it stinks!
It’s still RNG to me!
What’s the matter with the things I’m saying?
Do you think that I’m out of touch?
Should I try to get a poll uploaded?
If I did it would hurt too much.
Don’t you know about a better system honey?
Let us craft what we want and we’ll spend a lotta money."
Then Don’t blink, CASH sink, I think you’ll freak!
Remove RNG for me!
Everybody’s talkin’ 'bout the Soul Forge
Funny, but it’s still RNG to me!

Amazing thread. Great tunes. Let’s bump this back into rotation!
@efh313 can we have a song about Nyx being the bane of our lives?
A Nyx tune? Let me stew on it and see what happens!
Thanks for getting involved @Jainus! I’ve always wanted this thread to be a two way street. The community has to help provide fodder!
And thank you @collectorofgems for finding this old thread and giving it new life!
For some reason I have in my head ‘you’ve been Nyxed’ to the tune of Chubby Checker’s ‘do the twist’!
