And to be honest, at the moment, it's not the game. I rarely fight.
It's because of you all. Everyone. Before I continue, I'm not drunk, this isn't a drunken "I heart you all" post (It's nearly lunchtime here, and I'd be sacked for being drunk at work! :P).
I log back in, day after day, as I've never found a more intruiging, compelling, interesting, engaging, passionate and sometimes frustrating (! :P) group of people I'm proud to call friends (even if I haven't yet spoken to some of you, or you don't really know anything about me), anywhere else on the 'net.
Especially as we're so diverse.
Sure, there are disagreements, heated moments even. But that's (honestly) only to be expected with any contained group.
Sometimes I have to take a step back, regain a level head. But it doesn't keep me away.
I have so many fond memories of my times here in CB, and I've hardly ever used Chat.
I've had heated debates about game balance. I've thrown my toys out of the pram on more than one occasion. I've been through triumphs and heartbreaks.
And you've still been here for me.
So I'd just like to give everyone, old players, new guys/girls, returning vets as new NUBs, and especially Jon and NS a big Thank You.
And lets keep CB this way. Engaging, interesting, intelligent, inclusive, compelling, respectful and fun! (And don't think I'll ever lose my passion for trying to improve what I see as flaws in CB! :P)
CB, you rock!
