Interest -> Passion -> Frustration -> Anger -> Apathy is regular process of players with great interest in a game that goes stale. Stating empty promises stirs these emotions for no reason only for players to go through them again, increasing the chance of abandoning it altogether. "In three days" is a great joke I liked and imagined it would probably take longer but I sure hope Funky meant this Thursday or Friday cause I'd rather not be apathetic again.
Funky has given me permission to let everyone know that I have been given the title of newest DM of Higher Ground! It is an honour to have such authority bestowed upon me by the Funkasaurus himself. The main focus of my new position is head of the Brute Squad of the Wandering Wyrm. In fact, "I am the Brute Squad." I know nothing about coding or the inner workings of a game, but I can wave and say hello!
