I am back after my fourth (comparatively breif) hiatus. Unlike other hiatuses, which resulted due to lack of motivation for the game, this hiatus was forced upon me by a bad physics grade. However, I have lost a large part of the momentum that has driven me to play this game. I am thus maintaining a fairly minimal level of activity. I am participating in the 2v2 ladder once more with Super Smoove, as I have found that rather enjoyable, however, I will not be a participant in the 1v1 ladder. I am still not active in the 3v3 ladder, but if either migthyspeck or New Luna Republic wants to come back to it, or someone else would like me to join it, I would be more that happy to. We will see whether I come back to the rt ladder or not...
As for my clan, the FCC: I love it dearly, but I don't think, with my current state of activity, that I can accomplish the goals and desires that I have set fourth for it. It has, sadly, frayed a bit in my absence- not what I wanted to happen. I will probably take a more liberal approach to recruitment than I have in the past, openly ask for recruitment in the clan thread shortly. I would like to instill a co-leader as well, to help facilitate its growth. If anything, I do not want to see the clan die like has happened numerous times in the past. (The clan should really be called Pheonix, it surely feels like one).
For mapmaking: Currently, my projects are stalled. I will hopefully have my Strategic Australia map published by the end of June, however, this is by no mean guaranteed. Once again, it simply depends on my motivation to do so.
In any case, we will see where my motivation puts me. It could be possible that all I retain is a minimal activity state, and not play much, throughout the summer. Also, it is possible that I might get tired of my current internet interest (Anime, actually), and come back here with motivation redoubled. I do not know. We shall see.
TL;DR: I am back, but my motivation is not. I am on with minimal activity. I want to get Australia Strategic done, dunno if it will happen, however.
