Sabbatical

Hypothetical WAR is going on a sabbatical… though not etymologically speaking… This is a rather busy time of the year for me with half a dozen birthdays, an anniversary, Easter, graduations, etc. crammed into a very small time-frame (three birthdays in one week = cake overload) – meaning I have both little time to play WAR and to blog.

To address some recent questions I’ve received:

  • Q: Have you left WAR for Rift – A: Hell no
  • Q: Have you run dry on ‘Hypothetical’ ideas – A: No, I’m working on a rather huge project
  • Q: Why haven’t you been blogging as much – A: See above paragraph
  • Q: Are you happy with the recent patch – A: Meh.

Let me put it this way, when 1.4.0 went live, I vomited a little in my mouth. While it was on the PTS I began to brainstorm my next project. For 5-6 months now I’ve been working on a huge project – and I mean huge. My six new armies took 2 months to publish, my four new city-dungeons took about 5 weeks to publish – this is bigger, much bigger.

With such a huge undertaking on my plate I have eased into a commentary-mode on my blog  (mostly prodding for feedback from my readers, as said feedback will factor into my project); this is most evident with the Mirror WAR mini-project I recently launched. I will occasionally drop in to throw commentary at Mythic’s newest plot to throw a monkey-wrench into the works, but for the most part I’m going to take a step back from the blog until my project is ready to unveil. I have a few friends helping me with different artistic portions of this undertaking and they are working their hardest to help me out, for which I am eternally grateful. Tentatively, the launch-date for my new project is June 1st.

Hypothetical WAR is going to theory-craft explode at Mythic. I am throwing down the gauntlet and challenging Mythic. Hypothetical WAR is going to war.

    I cried a little inside with joy reading this comment “Hypothetical WAR is going to war.”

    Good luck with things Eka, and if I can help with anything let me know via the guild forums or if we see each other in game, since I’m not logging in much lately.

    Have a great time man! I am really curious about the new project, and it is always nice to read you writings, even if I don’t comment.
    You should be hired by Mythic and we would have even a better game \o/

    Cracking, can’t wait to see what you have lined up.

    As for “recent patch :Meh” I understand but it’s a move in the right direction. 1.4 came and after 1month I unsubbed from WAR. I am a casual player, been in the game since 2008 and still dont have a RR80 char. I was happy with this .. but then RR90’s started appearing and all of a sudden the game wasn’t fun. Mythic killed WAR for casual players in that patch. I’m back for a while… the game is still not in a good position but it’s better for having 1.4.2
