Lets be honest, 2021 was a bit of a crappy year all round for basically the entire globe with the coronavirus pandemic washing over us all like a tidal wave and it continues to do so although there may be light at the end of this seemingly endless tunnel in 2022.
The small saving grace for us, is the fact that our hobby as PC wargamers pretty much involves sitting inside for hours on end usually by ourselves glued to our computers. Whereas the rest of humanity has had to get used to this we are veritable experts at sitting staring at screens.
But jesting aside it has been a hard year for us all and thankfully we have all made it this far. The Few Good Men is a close knit community and I urge anyone out there, member or not who needs to talk, wargame or whatever please just hop on the forums and reach out. We are all in this together and together we will see it through.
2022 will see some new developments forthcoming from the site. As most of you will already notice the ladder has been dropped from the club. This was a decision undertaken by myself, Ithikial and Badger73 after careful consideration. Ithikial produced the stats and whilst we chewed over them it became apparent that uptake for the ladder wasn’t justifying the extra workload in the already rammed diaries of the staff members involved. So, there is a little void sitting there just now but work is underway to fill the space the ladder has left behind with something a little more tantalizing. Stay tuned for that.
The start of 2022 has also seen us lose one of our staff members, Badger73 who has been a font of knowledge, hard work and encouragement for me in the 7 years he has been a member of the club has decided to hang up his staff id badge at the door, he will be sorely missed from the staffing position although Im glad to say he will be staying as a fully paid up member on the forums… so go challenge him to a game and see if his years in the staffing role has made him a little rusty.
I’d also like to take the time to thank all the guys who help pay for the running costs of the club through my Patreon account. Over the years you guys have really helped me out on that front and I cant thank you all enough.
So onwards and upwards for 2022, I wish you and yours the best of luck and I will see you on the forums!
Thanks for reading.
