Why I stay with CB (in Off-topic)

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.

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!

I'd buy you a lemonade if I were there, mate!

It's over 5 years now around these parts mate. That's a little scary. I've moved house 4 times, gotten married and had a child since I started here.

Good to see that some still tell it like it is :D

GL I'm in agreement with you. I left CB 4 Years ago and still managed to find my way back here. No matter where I went or what I played I felt something was missing. It was not really because of the gameplay, it was the CB Community. You just cannot find Game Communities like CB's anymore.

Very well said, GL.

Thank you too :)

"GL... pssst.... refer your friends........ "

most of us old-timers have played cb in lieu of making friends! ; )

QBsutekh137 November 19 2009 10:44 AM EST

...sometimes downright at odds with friend-making. *smile*

I love you too, GL. *smile*

I agree with you GL. I haven't fought in a few months and I come back and chat it up every now and then. Y'all are great. ♥
