Historiker probably struggled with motivation for many months before dropping the game. Disinterest usually builds gradually rather than hitting suddenly (though losing a huge carrier battle early often gives rise to sudden "oh, sorry, I have real life issues" for Allied players). The first thing to go is annoying micromanagement of logistics, pilot training, etc.
I didn't know Historiker, but he was a pretty good player, wasn't he?
Hi CR. I totally agree. It seems to me Historiker lost his way at some point. Be it disinterest, lack of motivation, real life commitments or any number of reasons, it definitely appears that the basics weren't being covered. Just stepping in, I'm already overwhelmed by the sheer number of units that need to be redeployed, and the numerous issues that must be addressed immediately. I don't mean to disparage Historiker in any way, but the situation is what it is, and it's kind of a mess. It's going to take a lot of effort to get things moving again.
I can't really comment on whether Historiker was a good player or not, Erik would have a much better idea than myself. If nothing else, the fleet and air force looks to be in good shape.
I can't wait to get started. I've learnt over the years playing this game just how important logistics is. I know what I need to do.
