Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ launched on iOS and Android in the west on April 7, 2016. On April 5, I pitched an idea to the rest of the KHV staff: What if we set up official KHV parties within the game? And we set to work organizing said parties and even a weekly leaderboard to go with them, so we could have some friendly competition in the community. We launched the parties on the game's release day, and after a delay from our intended July launch, the first leaderboard went up on August 8, 2016.
Four years later, we're well into Union χ, and Dark Road is on the horizon. But with the continued declines in activity in both the KHV community and within the in-game parties, we've decided that it's time to retire the KHV parties and leaderboards. For those who still play the game (or who will in the future), a party recruitment thread will be created so you can still play with your friends from the community.
I'd like to thank, first of all, my fellow staff members who helped brainstorm and organize this whole thing. I'd also like to specifically thank everyone who helped out as a party leader (in alphabetical order): @Aelin, @Arch, @Calxiyn, @Cat~, @Explode, @Fearless, @Karuta, @Krowley, @LadyAzura, and @Scarred Nobody. And one more special thank you to @Plums for editing that lovely header image for the leaderboards. And lastly, thank you to everyone who played with us, no matter for how long, or for how much Lux you contributed. Thank you all for the fun times. We'll see each other at the Daybreak Town fountain plaza again!
May your heart be your guiding key!
Aced did nothing wrong! Ursus forever!
To commemorate almost four years of the KHV leaderboards, here are some records I've compiled!
(The Lux records are probably right? I didn't check every single weekly leaderboard lol; at least with the week-to-week placements I had a spreadsheet I continually kept throughout the years.)
