It was a lot of fun, and, who knows, when I get bored of being Multimedia Executive, or when I inevitably screw up and get fired, perhaps I will return.
Know that you'll always be welcome here. Do have to say I've missed our random conversations do to both of us being busy over the last while, and even though you might not be around often, I still have a feeling you'll pop in here to make a bad pun every once in a while. Good luck on future endeavors, hopefully the project will be able to grow as much as you've helped TWR.So, I've decided that Chaos Mafia is going to be the last game that I host, and that I'm pretty much going to retire completely from TWR both as a player and a host. (If properly bribed, I may be inclined to return as a guest FT writer every once in a while.)
My reasoning is simple. Life has been extremely busy for me the past couple of years. I keep saying: "okay when x is over, I'm going to have more free time." But, either x takes longer than was anticipated, or something else comes along to occupy my time.
Generation Four Mafia and Chaos Mafia V have both proven that I do not have the time or the attention span to host anymore, and, if I can't host, I certainly wouldn't be able to bring my "A" game when playing mafia. When I host and when I play, I put my heart and soul into those games, and I promised that I would never deliver a subpar product. I'd like to think that I've kept that promise, but it is going to be difficult to maintain that high level of quality moving forward, and it just wouldn't feel right for me to not host or play to the best of my capabilities.
Furthermore, I am a full Project Head for Bulbagarden, being in charge of Bulbagarden's YouTube and Twitch channels, and I've been a bit of a lackluster Project Head overall. What time I have available for Bulbagarden, I should focus on my project.
This was a tough decision to make, especially since I've enjoyed my time here and I've had a lot of fun playing and hosting mafia games. I will always have a lot of fond memories from my time here, and I will also rest easier knowing that, during my time here as a regular user, a sectional staff member, and then the section head, I've managed to help shape the direction this section has gone in and that my influence will continue to shape this section's future for years to come.
There is always more that I wish I had been able to do, but, on that note, I am extremely glad that the mentoring program has been rebooted once again, and I hope there are many new players and new faces around The War Room as a result.
And so, as I leave, and an era ends, I wish you all well, and that you all continue to help make this one of the greatest sections on Bulbagarden forums.
