The time has come for me to step away from the community. Cue much cheering, I'm sure. In my time here I've taken many positions on many topics, always trying to be true to myself, true to videogame history and true to what I think SotA could/should be. I even ran a guild here. Yup. I've lost count of how many times someone's asked me, "Why are you here?" when I've said something they didn't like and, rather than talk about the topic at hand, would simply question my presence. That doesn't mean I've stopped getting people talking. Look at one of my last threads... hundreds of replies... seven thousand views. The only stuff close on page one are legacy threads lasting years. So yeah, I've stuck around because I've still had things to say... I've still had an interest... but right now I find both of those aspects are slipping further away from me and have less and less meaning. The flood of good people leaving recently... people with far more investment in the game (personal and financial)... has provided sharp relief for me as to whether I myself should stick around further. There's one scenario that will bring me back to the forum. If it comes around, you'll see me again. Take care. Thanks to the folks who took the time to actually discuss topics rather than base everything off being on an imaginary side and not being open to a world of possibilities when it comes to gaming. -CB PS: And no, I'm not selling any of my early backer stuff. You can't have it. Adios.
