Hello there! It's been a while, huh?!
So, I guess I owe some explanations, since I completely disappeared from the site AND the Discord server.
Short version: I stopped playing Smite because I wasn't having fun anymore, I was dating someone, and work/rpg sessions were draining my soul.
- Smite: Ever since before the mid season patch, I wasn't having fun playing the game. This + the fact that tanks don't feel like tanks anymore and the solo meta and builds have drastically changed made me take a break from Smite. I was getting angry, frustrated and had zero fun playing anything, from Conquest to Arena.
I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, but it's not being easy. Feels like I never played this game.
- Dating: Yeah, I was dating someone, so my attention focused on this person and I had to let go some other things, and SmiteFire was one of them (Since I took a break from Smite, I also stopped contributing to the site).
To sum things up, I'm not dating anymore. So, more free time, yay!
- Work/RPG: In the middle of the pandemic, I lost my job, but 2 months ago I was able to get another one. Since I'm having a lot of work to do, my mind is focusing more on my job than anything else. When I get home, I just want to relax and play something to chill out.
Also, I was participating in 3 RPG tabletop games (2 with my now ex-boyfriend and 1 with a group of friends). But I ended up leaving all of them, so, more free time, yay!²
I won't promise that I'll start participating as intensely as I used to, but I'll try to not abandon things all of a sudden again. Also, I need some time to understand the solo meta so I can update my Nike guide. Expect that in the coming weeks.
Nevertheless, it's good to be "back" (like I ever left, figures...), and I hope to make even more contributions to the site :)
