Hey guys! I'm sorry for leaving this TCG hanging with a hiatus for so long! I honestly hate it when other TCG owners do this, but it's really just as they say: life gets ahead of you and some things end up taking the back seat. :( A lot of personal stuff was going on in my life when the TCG was slowing down, and to help me sort of cope and move on from all that, I took on a ton of work to keep me busy!! For the past few months I've really just been working on freelance projects nonstop & playing with other web projects I haven't touched since I opened Champion a few years ago.
I've sort of danced around updating the TCG with news in the past few weeks: partially because I really didn't want to disappoint anyone, but I don't plan on continuing Champion in it's current iteration. ;__; This TCG is super near and dear to my heart, I've made so many friends through it and I've learned a lot just running the game. However, I know from experience that TCGs tend to have a shelf life. There really is very little I can do to make it as "active" of a TCG as it once was, and also make it worth the effort I'm putting in every week to update it. TCGs are an intense labor of love--they can consume as much time as a full time job if you let it!
This all being said--I've been toying with the idea of creating a general anime character TCG with some of the more popular elements of Champion included, and some new ideas that I've had--but I cannot promise how soon that might come around. :) But if that sounds interesting to anyone (not sure how active the TCG world is currently or what's on the horizon as far as new TCGs go--fill me in!!) then let me know, because the most difficult thing about creating TCGs is normally just gauging interest! I know for awhile there's been kind of a lack of general anime games in the TCG world that only Champion really filled--so if that's still the case then I think it's not a bad route for me to take if there's enough interest. :3
More than anything, I just want to say thank you to everyone who has made Champion the game it is!! It's really you traders who kept this TCG alive for much longer than most TCGs hang around, and I'm so grateful for each and everyone of you. ;~; A super special thanks to all the staff members who have helped me throughout the years--I really couldn't have done it without you guys and you've all helped me a ton with not just running the TCG, but with coding, ideas, moral support, etc. Thank you so much for the time you spent on Champion. :( <333 I'm also super sorry to everyone who's messaged me in the past months asking when we'd be back or if we'd re-open because you wanted to join: Champion was truly a treasure to run, but I am looking forward to the prospect of taking all I've learned here and putting it towards something new. I hope that if I do, I'll see all of your lovely faces there too! :3
If you'd like to keep in touch with me, I'm pretty active on Twitter and would love to stay in contact!! Hit me up with a follow @buttonmash. You know I'll be your Shounen Jump/TCG sistah... :I LOL <33 Otherwise, hopefully we'll meet at another TCG soon!
Thank you so much everyone, for all the time you spent here at Champion & also for you're understanding! I'm gonna miss all my Champies, but it's not goodbye--just see you later! ;~;
