HSX Forums: Playing & Trading Strategy Board

And the PVL leagues...

Posted by: Rocket123 aka PVL Admin (a.k.a Rocket123) on Mar 19, 16:44 in response to Rocket123 aka PVL Admin's post What really happened to Rocket: for all inquiring minds

Ok, so many months ago now, I posted that I would be moving across Canada to accept a new position in the Maritimes.  I did not know how long it would take to get my footing in my new position.  There was some speculation, which from a gossip point of view, I tried to prevent prior to my sebatical with a pre-departure post.  Of course, posts get buried over time...

I was right about it being a very busy place/job and was correct with respect to my premonition that it would be very time consuming...that is to say, all-time-consuming.  Early on, I could tell that there was NO WAY I could manage the PVLs any more, and both these scenarios are expected to persist for well over 2 years. 

So I made a decision.  I probably could have mentioned it in the forums, but I honestly just didn't think about it any further. I regretted that I could no longer manage either my Port nor my Leagues.  So, with some sorrow, I closed shop.  I just could not let the leagues languish without attention for 2+ years.

Am I happy about the changes at HSX, not really.  But, those are the things outside my control.  One either accepts them or moves on.  The timing, however, is somewhat coincidental.  I didn't leave, nor close the PVLs because of the changes.  EVERYTHING was motivated solely by my inability to carry on playing the game.

Despite the fact I made several port cleanup trades today, I am not "back".  My heavy workload will persist.  I just had some time and thought I would come by and visit for a while.

oh, and Mike 255:  I have had a job for over 31 years, twice as long as you have been alive...and a carreer for over 27; thus why I have 100 subordinates now and why I am, unlike you, so busy.

Thanks to all who favoured PVL Leagues (since 2009)!  Sorry I could not continue.

See you all when I can; if not, I wish you all the best.
