Apology to 2017 Blitzkrieg & Excalibur

Postby AardvarkArmy » 20 Apr 2018, 07:28

Greetings fellow destroyer of worlds - it's been nearly a year since I logged into the site. :shock:

Glad to see some familiar names on the site (and in my message inbox) as well as new blood. :D

I wish to offer a profound apology to the players and GM of last year's Blitzkrieg & Excalibur games. :oops:

I disappeared suddenly from the site due to, well, something of a civil war in my family - involving elder abuse, mental illness and disabled adults "running away from home." :o

I was completely overwhelmed with trying to navigate the situation, and for several months, PlayDiplomacy.com was simply relegated to the sub-basement of my priorities. :(

Things have been more-or-less "all quiet on the Western Front" for a few months now. I could/would have returned to the site sooner... but I've been completely mortified by the circumstances of my two-game NMR departure. :oops:

Until May of last year, I probably had one of the best "reliability" ratings on the site. I can think of countless times that I have brutally punished opponents for slacking on orders, and even more brutally lambasting allies... and often turning to devour them as compensation for their NMR-ing ways :evil:

I recognize that I committed the gravest crime possible on this site, short of metagaming with 9 aliases in a 5-player variant. :roll:

So, again, I am sincerely sorry for muffing up two games for both players and GM :|

I've been peeking at the "Games looking for players" and thinking of throwing my hat back into the ring... if GMs will look past last spring to my several years of prior reliability. :geek:

If I do get into a game, it appears I may have one other problem. I see there is another player (AlphaActive) being commonly referred to as "AA." So.... would I need to be "OG AA" ??? :mrgreen:

As the GM for both those games--don't worry about it. Shit happens (in your case it sounds like a LOT of shit happened, most of it the shitty kind), real life always has to take priority, especially when it's something that sounds as serious as what you're describing.

I can't speak for any other GMs, but I'd welcome you back into any of my future games.

You can barely see any marks on my back right now... :P

Definitely good to have you back AA! :D

Sorry to hear about the issues!
No worries at all. I can barely remember the games, but most likely I stole some centers from the beleagured countries anyway ;)

I would reiterate would others, real life has to come first and you have been having a real hard time. You would be welcome for the game I am currently recruiting for.

What does the OG stand for?

Technically it means original gangster but is commonly used simply to mean original.

Welcome back AA, I just returned after 3-years absence myself.
(And coincidentally I am in similar circumstances as well)
Very clever, Mr. Smart...
