It's been a long year (in General)

It's been a long year since I started CB, but a great one :D.

The game has changed so much, let us go back in time to the CB I started in.

It was a world dominated by archers with broken belegs.

Recent Changes to the RoBF had caused single minion RoBF to dominate, much debate over whether this was fair. Level growth was rescaled!

Ranger held top MPR, almost breaking 3 million, he was pretty unstoppable.

The new year rolled by with very minor changes, but the introduction of leadership. I started making use of NUB forging.

In February was the N*B rescale, me and Nem broke the forge and made mucho money. LA takes the MPR lead! Conundrum can almost beat Ranger!

Afterwords the entire game was shaken up with the introduction of Enc. Big USD people everywhere cry. Lumpy beats Mikel, and gets reset from exploiting disenchant. Meanwhile during this time, Single minion RoBF because a shadow of what is used to be.

Summer rolls by, and Jon introduces SG, and decides that ranged is no longer the name of the game big damage nerf!

Nem and I start our bizarre NCB, we grow quickly and quietly as the community seems to be obsessed over new changes (new scores system!)

Looking back, archers aren't broken, but are no longer quite as viable. RoBF isn't broken, but it works better. Melee means much more in the game now, so balancing survival with damage is beneficial. It does feel more balanced than a year ago.

Yeah, it's been a great year in CB. :D

I truly think the game gets better with every changemonth. It's been my view of things since I joined, two and a half years ago.

The only thing missing is...MORE PEOPLE!

This is one of the most addictive online stat's type games I have ever played. I think when new people come with opinions on the game they shouldn't get berated and stereotyped for it (pg rule for me :)

One of the biggest things I commend is the community for their quick response to questions or concerns in the forums, no matter how mundane they must be.

Come Jan it'll have been a long seven years for me. I'd rather not go through the old forums and try and put together a history of my CB life, can't remember the majority of it.
