Taking a few months away from the game

Postby Sokolov » Mon Apr 03, 2017 1:50 am

Hey guys,

To stay active and keep your team up to date takes only 10-15 minutes a day. However, to play the way I like to play, is a lot more time. Lately I have not been having time/energy to play the game the way I want to play it. Neglecting player talks, ignoring strategies, no scouting, no planning for rebuild with a declining team, etc. And most importantly, I have not found the time and attention it takes to read the forums.

My current work contract is up May 5th and I will either be benched or moved to a new assignment. I'm going to leave the game for a while, until I get settled in to my next assignment.

All of my loans are past due, so I will return or recall all loans my teams are involved in. After, both my teams will expire this season, so that I can start fresh in a few months.
I have always wanted to post character driven RP, so hopefully next time I start a new team it will be a good time for that.

Your friend,

Felling the same bro, my job is currently taking me a lot of time, I ve not been able to manage my teams the way I used to do.

Take care and come back, the community will miss your absence.

I'll always remember battling the Rooks with my first team. Really helped me get invested in the game early on having you as a rival. Take care and good luck!

I'm sorry to hear that, Sokolov! I hope to see you around again soon.

Sadly I'm in the same position at the moment and I feel really bad about it. I haven't enjoyed any of the online games as much as I enjoy QM, but lately it has just been a mess for me.

Sad to hear this, will be sad to see the Bangtails go away.

Looking forward to you returning re-energized and ready to compete!

Thanks for the good vibes guys :) also if I came across whiny that was not the intent. Just a new phase of life and I'll be back later.
