I write to you today to inform you that early last week I resigned as Anglopshere Ambassador. I did not make this decision lightly but felt it was necessary given my circumstances. I have neither the time nor the passion to effectively fulfill this role any longer and this is an action I should have taken some time ago. My life isn't the same it was when I was first elected to represent Anglosphere in 2019 which makes my free time more limited. At the same time the vigor I once felt serving as Ambassador has evaporated due to a combination of factors. This role is a difficult one as I have had to balance community interest with my own, as well as the Game Center. In addition I had to greatly temper expectations regarding change due to limited resources to implement them and the severe disparity between interests of stakeholders (Anglosphere, other communities, Travian).
I think Legends on Tour and the Ambassador program have achieved perceptible improvements to the game but I believe there remains significant potential on the table. I hope my successor (if and when they are chosen, I have no idea if this going to occur) is capable of pushing for that potential to be achieved. I hope that the changes we desperately need are achieved quickly and we see this game continue to live on far into the future.
I am currently playing a server but I do not know how active I will be on the forum / regarding discussions about game improvements going forward. I still have pages of documents, spreadsheets and pieces of paper with hand written notes about ideas to improve the game but as I said I just do not quite have the same passion for it any longer. After this current server is over I may also return to retirement but only time will tell. In the meantime please feel free to reach out to me and if I am able I will respond. You can reach me on Discord at BlackBlade#8553 or on the forum. I will leave the Anglosphere Ambassador discord server up for the time being until I hear whether another will replace me. They may find it useful to take over.
Thank you to everyone for your support over the last two years.
