This doesn't belong in the "Corsair achievement thread" as much as the "Corsair luck thread" but it's sorta a cool story so wth :P.
So I took over what was, at the time, a dying sky shell on Pandy. We literally had about 5-6 members who still showed up each week. we farmed but rarely killed gods due to numbers issues. But we had the good fortune of running gods at the same time as a JP linkshell which was also short on members. We'd already done Kirins jointly in the past but I was able to talk them into doing all gods witth us. And we survived and thrived for about 7-8 extra months that way.
On a side note, if the JP button is real, I've had a pretty good vantage point lol. Our JP friends once got 5 wlegs in 4 consecutive kirins (2 on the same kirin!).
Anyway, 4 weeks ago the JPs let me know they were finishing up with sky at the end of March and becoming a sea LS. I thanked them for all their help and knew my own group would be unable to deal with Kirin alone (we run at a HORRIBLE time lol... 8 am Sundays my time for gods). Anyway, we obviously had to spam our remaining Kirins to make sure we got them done. Last week (March 30) was supposed to be the final day. We had 3/4s of a kirin set but were missing Suzy. Everyone wanted to do Byakko (including the JPs) so we spammed him and passed up that last Kirin. Anyway, the JPs extended their sky run one more week because they had 2 sets left to use. We filled out our last set and got in a Kirin I never thought we'd have. Sure enough, Wlegs dropped and I got them =D. Was pretty sweet considering I'd pretty much given up hope of getting them.
Anyway, the alliance came to its conclusion today but it's really been one of the best things I've seen on this game. Both groups were able to do so much and gain so much thanks to the partnership and even though none of us spoke Japanese and only a couple of them spoke much English, we did some pretty amazing things.
