I want to thank everyone that reads IN. Whether or not you agree with what I say, you all are the reason I've continued my quest to excellence. I'm getting hundreds of unique hits a day (close to a thousand) and it is still growing. That is very impressive considering I specialize in Black Templars information.
I appreciate every single, last one of you. It takes courage to step out of your protective bubble to see what its like on the outside. There is something very respectable about taking a look at another's perspective and weighing in on it objectively. While I cannot please everyone, nor can I cater to every player's needs, I do my best. I am not perfect and I'm not always right. This is a learning process for me as well. What I've tried to do here is show everyone what I've learned so far over my Warhammer 40k career and maybe help some of my fellow players improve their game.
For my supporters, thank you. I've grown somewhat into a mini-internet celebrity (no where near Stelek, Kirby, or Fritz status yet) over the past year or so, and because of this, I've gained quite a few critics during that time. For one reason or another, I can do no right. When my name is mentioned, threads die. What I put forth my opinion, I'm that guy that everyone ignores because I'm not afraid of stating my opinion quite bluntly. I suppose its not unexpected, but it does disappoint me. I'm not in it for the glory or the power. All I want to do is help my fellow players get the most out of their armies.
I've tried to stay as level-headed as I can while conducting my online "business", but when my brethren vehemently disagree with me a slew of topics, its gets frustrating. Even if I thoroughly explain myself in explicit detail, some simply cannot agree to disagree in the face of logic. I don't want to force anyone into playing the game my way, but when they refuse to see things from my perspective, it is only detrimental to our community.
You cannot know how pleasing it is for me to see the results of my labors. I get a steady flow of emails that speak of improved game-play based on what the person learned here. I see a growing number of players turn around and start teaching other players things that they claim to have read here as well. It proves that, while I may be a little abrasive to some, Implausible Nature is an effective method of delivering relevant information about the Black Templars to those that care to look for it.
To be honest, when I first published this website, I was going to be happy if I helped even one player improve their game. I never expected to gain such a positive reaction from so many players. So those that continue to point people my way, even if you disagree with some of the things that I talk about, I cannot really show my appreciation enough. Its players like you that are the true driving force behind our community. You have my gratitude and respect. In return, I'll strive to continue putting out excellent information for everyone.
Now, let's get back to cleansing the Universe of the Xenos, Heretic, and the Witch! For the Emperor! :D
