So against my summery thoughts, here I am. Another ET comeback. I played from Feb till end of June, and now decided to restart the game. I got fed up with ET (and maybe lack of admin work, haha) five months ago, and decided to quit ET. After couple of months, I noticed I was missing the game too much. I thought about the cons of starting it again. I guess it's worth the lost time. Honestly, I thought the servers would be pretty much dead today (under 10 players maximum at any time), but they seem to be going strong. Now I'm equipped with a proper gaming mouse and sensible playing time control! Once I get a new screen, I'll be smacking flamma's cheeks even harder. I see there are new admins, notellen (I'm the original Ellen, huh! :P) and Panzer legend Hesis. Maybe team balance is not an issue anymore.
I have such warm memories from this game that I believe it can be pleasant again. I do enjoy the community, even when it sometimes might have looked I didn't like things too much. I was playing at Beginners #2, where I plan to restart in the coming days (same GUID). Maybe Hardcore server, too. I completed your little personality inquiry under below. Last "gaming season" I didn't care about the forums, so now I compensated by sharing all this super secretive info.
