Wow, I missed a lot.

 

I am trying to set myself on a path to be more active in the next season. I really thought working from home would give me easier access to playing games when I wanted, but it turns out that hasn't been the case. And summer is the busiest time of year for us, because with what we do focusing around the school year, we tend to get a lot more done in the summer when nobody is hitting the site. 

 

So I would like to stay in for next season, if I am allowed. I have a slew of new games to wreck my completion % and for me to try and plat. I can't make any promises, but I'll try harder. Still, I am surprised I got one win, and also surprised that I was not last in Bronze League.

 

Congrats to the CWC members,  both who were eliminated and who remain.

Thank you! :D I couldn't have done it without @jem and @Mesopithecus. I can't take credit for that plan because 80% of it was all their idea and I was receiving moral support from them hourly. I just played the games and barely got any sleep. xD 

Thanks for the shout out, but I did absolutely nothing besides check in every few hours. This victory was yours, so congrats. That was a mighty impressive win!

As Jem said already, the victory was all yours, I was just cheering you on and giving you some motivational nudges now and then.

 

You did an awesome job and you should be proud of your performance :D

Thanks for the congrats everyone. :D

 

Hey mod team, can we maybe get the scores posted for the final round? I know it's hard to believe I actually won a competition so you're probably quadruple checking the scores, but I did. :P

Sad to see this go but I understand where this is coming from. I’ve only been in a few seasons but I’ve loved it. I will eagerly await a comeback season when the increased interest is there

Sorry to hear this but when it gets going again just let me know, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the break won’t be too long. Thank you to everyone who kept the league going! :highfive:

For me, I think the novelty of it has worn off. Back when this first started in 2014, it was really the only trophy hunting competition going at the time. There may have been others, but there weren't many, and this revolutionized the competitions section on this site.

 

As the site grew, many other competitions started, and they have evolved in some way over time. Whether it is a yearly backlog challenge with different monthly themes, or theme based tourneys (like Halloween or Christmas based competitions), there were fresh new comps everywhere one looked. Not to dog this comp at all, since it is the OG of them all, and my personal favorite, but beyond some points scoring changes, and how wins were decided, there really wasn't much evolution to this comp.

 

Maybe a rebranding would revive the interest. Keep it as the Trophy Hunters League, but evolve into something fresh.

 

Also, life changes a lot in 4 years. When I first joined this league in 2014, I was living alone with lots of time on my hands. Since that time, I moved in with my girlfriend, married her, have switched jobs numerous times, bought a house, etc. Life has just changed so much that for me, the kind of time I could put into this tourney 4 years ago just isn't there, and without the comp evolving, its easy to get left behind. I'm sure life has changed so much for so many others too, that they can't participate at the same rate they used to.

 

I think the decision to end it for now is a good one. But hopefully when it comes back, it will be fresh and new, and rise from the ashes like the phoenix. And if it comes back, I will be first in line to join.

 

Goodbye, OG.

Thanks @Wdjat Prinny Doods @HcG Clawz and @Lucas for some of the best trophy hunting memories. And yes, to everyone who was in the league, too. That would just be a lot of tagging lol. Lots of great memories here and I'm sad to see it go, but I'm just as guilty in the lose of interest. Like @ShogunCroCop mentioned, life has changed a lot in the last 4yrs for me too. My girlfriend and I moved in with each other as well. Also, we actually moved to a different state together to pursue careers and possibly go back to school. With all that being said, I really love the Trophy Hunter's league, as it kept me very interested in trophy hunting over the years. Here's to many more years trophy hunting. ✊
