FUMBBL going forward
It's been an eventful year. The LRB5 client showing up and testing begun. Cyanide's game was released, with a fair amount of people trying it and writing... let's say mixed reviews of it. We've also had a pretty significant group of people caught cheating in preparation for tournaments on the site, and a Cease and Desist letter from Games Workshop, asking us to clean out the GW copyrighted material.

All in all, it's been hectic. However, we're still here. I'm working with others on a number of things.

The new PM system has turned out quite well, and I'm planning to extend the functionality of it over time.

I'm currently in the planning process of the birthday event on January 3rd, and will be informing you all of what will happen this year later this month.

PurpleChest is hard at work setting up the tourneys for next year and we will sort out the schedule for it shortly so everyone has a chance to plan for them.

Although the development on the LRB 5 client was suspended, I am working with Kalimar to introduce a "fantasy football" division for the site. Because of the C&D letter from GW this project was understandably delayed. Rest assured though; we are still progressing with this project and are hoping to be able to start testing again in January.

I am also planning to give some love to the player-run leagues on the site and have some exciting plans in mind. I hope to have something to announce early next year.

I hope you're all staying around for another year! I know I will :)

YAY!

Thanks for all the hard work you put into making this place AWESOME, Christer (and all the admins and tourney staff :D)
Posted by Sockosensei on 2009-12-08 16:48:04
Long live FUMBBL!

Thanks for everything, Christer. I'm excited to see this "fantasy football" in action.
Posted by Calthor on 2009-12-08 16:54:09
I certainly will. FUMBBL ftw.
Posted by Stinkytroll on 2009-12-08 17:00:13
This has made my day! Thank you Christer and long live FUMBBL!!!
Posted by Chewie on 2009-12-08 17:12:56
I'll be around. You know it. :)
Posted by Ravenmore on 2009-12-08 17:15:32
Huge YAY! For the fantasy football league! Since it starts with [F] will it replace [F]action? xD
Also, since FFL sounds rather generic, we could have loads of fun making up the setting :D
Posted by SvenS on 2009-12-08 17:36:47

Awesome! :D
Posted by vlokiera on 2009-12-08 17:39:40
I can't wait to see what you have for the OCCS and the other leagues next year! Thanks for everything!
Posted by Purplegoo on 2009-12-08 18:05:14
Can't wait. Gogo FUMBBL!

All hail the chief! And praise be to the great god nuffle :)
Posted by BillBrasky on 2009-12-08 18:21:14
I'll be here until they pry the tcp/ip from my cold dead hands!

Kudos, for all the great work.

Also, being able to have custom races in [L] would certainly light that fire up for me :)
Posted by Chrome_ghoul on 2009-12-08 18:36:44
Not been here for as long as some of the oldies, but I will not leave without being forced!

It's a great place Christer, and we all love you for it.
Posted by PurpleChest on 2009-12-08 18:37:42
Nice to hear boss.

And i'm going no where. Got no where to go.
Posted by Balle2000 on 2009-12-08 18:40:29
Thank you Mr President!

A state of the nation speech was just what we needed, I think.

Especially looking forward to some sugar for the [L]eagues.
Posted by Jeffro on 2009-12-08 18:47:09
Thank you, sir... for all you and the admins do. It is appreciated.
Posted by Joni on 2009-12-08 18:59:48
Thank you very much for all the hard work. I am really impressed by all your personal effort. I really hope we will see further progress on this side.
I'm not quite the playing-dude but I enjoy spectating lots and lots of games and chatting on IRC and I am really thankful. Really.

You rock.
Posted by eyeslikethunder on 2009-12-08 20:38:53
Thx Christer

Not sure the LRB5 is worth the risk though
Posted by Pirog on 2009-12-08 20:58:57
Good to hear, Christer! Thanks again for all your hard work to entertain us. Despite Nuffle doing his best to make me leave I will stay on for next year :)
Posted by Camy on 2009-12-08 21:10:16
Yet another thanks Christer, your work doesn't go unappreciated.

eyeslikethunder - i'm not fussed about LRB5, looking forward to the Fantasy Football division though!
Posted by MadTias on 2009-12-08 21:14:14

Thanks for your great work. I'm looking forward to the new [L]eague-plans and the Fantasy Football :D
Posted by arw on 2009-12-09 12:42:46
That's great!
This should be the end of pessimistic blogs and rumour mongering I hope.
I'll be around for another year- in fact I never planned otherwise.
Posted by clownfoot on 2009-12-09 13:04:09
Fantasy Football? Shouldn't it be, y'know, Fantasy Rugby? (Or Fantasy Egg-Chasing?) ;0)
Posted by Barre on 2009-12-09 13:50:41
SWL is waiting with bated breath...
Posted by harvestmouse on 2009-12-09 13:59:31

Posted by Psilocybe on 2009-12-09 18:11:00
This is great news indeed, once again thanks for hours of good fun and keep up the good work !

Posted by DragonsMaw on 2009-12-09 18:24:58
You couldn't pry me from fumbbl with anything. Even when the game drives me to drink, fumbbl is my favorite home away from home. Glad its on!
Posted by Melmoth on 2009-12-09 19:19:25
Thank you!!
Posted by Symmetrical on 2009-12-10 04:27:18
Adding to [L] is great news, nice work Christer, good to see.
Posted by SeraphimRed on 2009-12-10 10:42:58
"I am also planning to give some love to the player-run leagues on the site"

In addition to FUMBBL weathering the storm, this is also great news.

Good work guys.
Posted by ts9 on 2009-12-10 13:57:41

Question: How do you fit so much awesome into one single post?

Afterthought: Yay!
