Been quite a while since I've posted! I'll be honest and open (as always) so it'll probably be a long post and get me into trouble but nothing new there hehehe!
The collapse of our thriving community was really sad to see because many hours of blood sweat and tears went into growing and maintaining it. Initially the forums were mainly WvW focused but Dio and I wanted to also include the PvE aspect of Guild Wars so those players would also feel welcome here....that's when the trouble began. There isn't any point dragging up the past so all I shall say is "there are always two sides to every story."
I personally had to take a break from the forums for my own sanity because I was constantly wondering who was going to stab me in the back next when I hadn't done anything wrong. In the end it was making me very ill so I decided to take a step back, think and recuperate. During this time @Gihon
has been a star and kept doing his fantastic posts, loyal community members still dropped by to say hello and have kept in touch (think they just want my sweeties!)
Dio and I decided to focus on playing PvE so we set up a new Guild: Vabbi Forums [VF], I bought a new TS so VF and community members could use it free of charge whenever they wanted (a big thank you again to @Gihon
for helping me set that up,) we were doing weekly guild missions and upgrading the hall at quite a speed but then people lost interest in the game so that too went quiet.
With the new WvW system being introduced players have started to slowly trickle back in game which has been fantastic to see, admittedly WvW isn't the same anymore but I do believe that there is hope for Vabbi and the game in general but it'll take hard work to build everything up again so.......
I'm willing to dust off my whip and try making a go of things one last time but I'll need help to do this. So, if you think you can work alongside loopy Jojo please speak up.....if you do decide to come back and play with me Dio I'll turn you into my slave again so be warned! :p
