Well, which do you want first. Oh you can’t answer.
How about the bad news: I’ve unsubbed from WAR. This really isn’t as big a deal as you might think it is. Truth be told, I’ve not played much at all since I started working on the WARdrobe. It is a pretty intense project. I’ll have my free trial account, but I’ll no longer be a part of Core. That’s not a big deal though, really. Anything I knew about in there, I couldn’t share, nor would it influence the WARdrobe. Besides, being part of Core really didn’t elevate the status of WARdrobe and get me any sorts of insider information to help me develop for it. That was good ol’ digging on my part to pull in all the pieces of their API.
The good news is that fortunately for me, I don’t need to be subbed to WAR to work on it. With the endless free-trial, I have access to everything I need to continue to maintain the addon and the site alike. I remain committed to developing for this game, even if I don’t play it. I like the community (even Testpig), and feel an obligation to help them out wherever I can. I hope to have the uploading issues worked out over the next week or two. Things have been…arduous. (First time development is easy, as you can start over if you want. I need to triple-check things to ensure I don’t fubar existing data now).
So there you go. That’s the big news. Hope everyone had a good holiday, and I hope you don’t hate me for jumping off the WAR wagon. I was pretty burned out on the existing experience, and tacking 20 more levels to the end and a randomly playable Skaven wasn’t enough to entice me to keep on truckin’ to 100. Sorry Mythic. I kept on keepin’ on longer than I should have. Maybe that was wishful thinking. Maybe it was a feeling of dedication from all the fun I had in DAoC. Who knows. Anyway, I’ll raise a glass to hoping you pull the nose up before you hit the water.
See everyone after the new year. 🙂
