In case you guys haven't noticed, I haven't been playing much winbolo in recent weeks. That's because I have decided to take a very long break from the game. Perhaps the duration of the school year. I got a new job and I want to focus on it and playing hours of winbolo won't allow me to do that. I may sneak back in december for a few games or whatever, but for the most part I'm done for a while.

I originally wasn't going to give this "press release", although some of you are probably thrilled that I won't be playing much. The reason I did was because I thought it would be funny if I left by making a stunning revealation about the way I play. Some of you might have been able to notice, some of you might not have noticed, but nobody has said anything to me about it. It's the reason I play the way I do and can't play any better:

I play with the default key setup! Smile

see you guys in a few months

Whoa......MS...wtf? If you're a solid player with the terrible default keys, why don't you switch to the better setup and totally kick everyone's ass? You're holding back!

Just let me know before you switch so i can get some life insurance. Very Happy

Apparently your vast experience impersonating a drunken speller didn't pay off.

I didn't feel like going through the long painful adjustment period. It would be a long several weeks or even months to get it right. Although I know in the long run I'd play much better, I just wanted to have fun and play.

When and if I come back, I'll start right away with a better key setup and go through the adjustment period then, since playing again after playing for many many months would require an adjustment period anyway.

I never told anyone that I used the default key setup before because then they would consider that a weakness, and play right to my known weakness. Next time I won't have that weakness anymore though Smile
