I feel somewhat bad about making so forceful a push in the online communities where I frequent, to check out Implausible Nature. I was talking to Redfinger about this the other day. While some of this is just shameless plugging, a lot of it is a legitimate desire to improve my fellow Black Templar player's skill level. I'm by no means perfect myself, but I hope to prove myself during next year's tournament circuit. Still, when I began searching the internet for Black Templar resources a few years back, they simply did not exist. Or if they did, they were old and out of date. There are so few places out there for people to go who play this awesome army, that it drives me nuts. And even fewer that provide good information in my opinion. I can count these on one hand, with a finger or two left. This is why I want Implausible Nature to take off. The goal is to make this website the ultimate resource for everything Black Templars.
It might seem to others that its just me wanting viewership, and yes, I do want people to see and appreciate the work I put into this site. Sure, I'd like to become known as one of the prominent Black Templars players in the world. But honestly, who doesn't want to be this for their respective armies? Quite a few people know me now, but I'm far from being the internet sensations that Stelek, Jwolf, TastyTaste, Kirby, etc are. Someday, perhaps, but that is not the mission of Implausible Nature. It is to help new, veteran, or returning BT players become better than they were. There is always room for improvement, even for me. The more voices and viewers I have giving their input, the better the site is at fulfilling its mission.
I don't run advertisements on my website, unlike almost all other internet personalities. Nor do I get free hosting. Implausible Nature's financial burdens are completely out of pocket. Our community is important to me and I'm willing to put my wallet behind creating a strong, competitive Black Templars playerbase.
So spread the word. Mention Implausible Nature if you see a fledgling BT player. Link to us. Talk about us on your forums. Word of mouth is a powerful advertising tool, and I would appreciate anything you'll do to promote this website. It isn't just for me, it is for the betterment of our Black Templars community. I certainly don't want new players picking Black Templars, building an army, and then consistently lose with their poor lists. This will only cause them to leave the game and quite honestly, with as fragile an economic situation Games Workshop is in, we cannot allow that. So lets hear from you guys and gals out there. Give me suggestions, critiques, input, or whatever else. Have questions, need list help, or want to talk tactics? Hit me up in an email! It can only make our community stronger! :D
