The decision hasn't been an easy one, but I feel like I've reached the point where I need to let that commitment go and start freeing up time to spend on other things.
|When I started the blog, this was an awesome ship!|
Without a doubt, the community will be the thing I'll miss the most. I've made some great friends over the years; some of you I got to hang out with in Iceland or at one of the London meets, while there are many others I didn't meet but would have liked to. I've had a lot of fun blowing up spaceships with all of you - thanks for being a part of my game.
I do feel like the kind of content that I've been offering - in particular the Know Your Enemy series - provides something that's otherwise quite difficult to come by. That's really why I started writing it, and has only become more true as balancing has stepped up a notch. Unfortunately, simply keeping the older posts up to date has been a losing battle for a while now. It's a little disappointing that I never got to finish the series, as well as that everything I have written is going to go out of date fairly quickly if it hasn't already. On the other hand, I think it says great things about the current state of the game - balance is now a constant process instead of something that only happens every couple of years, and old, clunky mechanics are actually being updated and improved rather than left to languish. That's a trade that I'm more than happy to take.
Ok, that's enough warm and fuzzy - back to scamming and backstabbing, all of you! We have a reputation to uphold!
As for me, CCP were recently kind enough to renew my fansite account, and while I don't expect them to keep it that way for much longer I may continue to log in occasionally for so long as that remains the case - we'll see how things go. Once that runs out, I expect I'll let my accounts lapse.
