It's been emotional

Post Author: andrei » Fri Apr 05, 2019 4:32 pm

Guys,

The time has come for me to move on from this great league and make space for somebody else.

I joined CSL back in September 2013 when Myles recruited me from Wolverine Studios forums. I just registered on Wolverine to complain about how, in DDS 1, 2 and 3 the AI was so stupid that, once you get to know the game a little bit, you can win title after title even with the crappiest teams. Apparently, Myles was impressed 😊

I am not leaving because I’m too busy or sad or depressed. Quite the opposite actually, but I started to notice the last few seasons that CSL has become more of a headache than something I actually enjoyed. When you stop caring, its time to let somebody else step in.

I am truly grateful to each and everyone of you for these years. I met people that are far better GMs, Coaches and people in general than I’ll ever be. I learned a lot while being part of CSL and will miss it.

Good luck gentlemen sand keep that no repeat champs streak alive :lol:
So what do you expect when you draft Grabby McHolderson to play your right tackle?

Man, hate to see you go. You're one of the great guys we have had in this league for a long, long time. I hope that maybe after a little time away from the league you will find the enjoyment once again and join up in the [hopefully near] future.

Man, this sucks. Hate to see you go Andrei, you've always been one of the best members of the league. I hope some time away leaves you missing this place and wanting to get back into it, we'd always love to have you back.

Dang, hate to see you go but completely agree. Once it becomes a hassle rather than fun, it's time.

Man, sorry to hear you're leaving! We've had some great discussions and you've always been willing to help me out. Hope to see you back at some point.

Noooo, why are you leaving us? Man, you will definitely be missed. Perhaps a little break will help reignite your interest down the road, and rejoin us later on! Keep in touch buddy, and I hope we will see you again soon! (You can't just leave my boy Middleton dying like this)

Sorry to see you leave man, but its good for people to step away from time to time. You will always be welcome back if you ever decide you're missing the CSL in your life.

Man happy to hear you're doing what you think is best for you, but you're one of the best GMs in the league. I was really looking forward to seeing what you planned to do with the next engine. I too hope you'll come to miss us and return refreshed. Take care!

P.S. Just one last Draymond trade? LoL

Sucks to see you go. You are one of the best strategists of the past 7 seasons. Ive always looked to see what you're doing to try and learn something. Hope to see you return one day.

Sorry to see you leave Andrei.
It is right, if you cannot enjoy it anymore, it is the right decision. Like all the other GM's I hope you find your way back when the time is right for it!!
