It has been more than a year from my last blog post and this shows how my encounters and hype for V:tes looks these days. Cease of official support was great hit to the game, but I tried to fight it for as long as I can. True is, that our player base shrunk from two tables on regular basis each week to not being able to meet at all in at least four players. I missed more games in one month, than in three years before.
It is not only that, but though I still enjoyed deck building, most of other players were not bringing any new things to table. I still tried to run events, but with less of players it became unbearably difficult. Not only that, but some players often forgot about those and we ended up with having for very little people. Some of them have travelled for hour or so just to find out, that someone else have forgotten about event and we now have seven players. Holding each event or even weekly play ment that I had to make phone calls just to make sure, that everything is in place and often found out, that people simply forgot about their promises.
After three last events crashed and burned due to ignorance and inactivity, I gave up and sold my cards except for three decks. I love the game and I love community, but I will not put my time into something, that just won't mean anything in the end. I will still carry on with my duties as judge, prince or NC and I will be glad to join and play in any event if the time permits it, but it will be on more passive side.
I wish you all good luck and I hope we will meet in future on some tournament or possibly see the game resurrected again.
Best regards to you all.
PS: Even that this is irrelevant to V:tes, I will be now putting a lot of time into something, that I hope will be great in future and is awesome even now, so if someone wants to join or meet me, you can find me as Silmegil in this game:
