Hey, I got my first win in Apex Legends.
I'm already so much better at it than Fortnite, probably thanks to my Titanfall 2 skills.

The win felt good, though. My teammate carried me and got 10 kills, but I healed them. That counts for something, right?

Anyways, how are y'all?

Not quite sure what most of that meant but it sounds like you had fun, and that's what counts :p

Anyways, how are y'all?

I'm eating girl scout cookies and watching Made in Abyss for the 10th time in a month. So I'm doing great!

Really? I perceived the opposite; a flood of new nations coming and joining us. Do you know where I can find the site statistics?

There are always new nations but the community isn’t the same

I’m not really sure why I’m still on here. Most of my NS friends have grown up and gone away

It's the Hotel TETifornia Effect. You can log in but you can never log out.

I just put too much work into my nation to give it up like that

Alternatively, there's no "delete account" button, it's a 30 day process of not logging in and that sounds like a lot of work and dedication.

It's been a slow decline for a few years now if I had to put it in a time frame. It happens, it's an old forum, and forums aren't particularly the height of fashion themselves.

That's not to speak of the overall health of the site, mind. Gameplay looks like it's still doing okay from an outside perspective.


Gameplay and Got Issues? were both horrible and awful places to be because their subforums moved at a snail's pace, at least this was the case a year or two back. They both move somewhat faster as far as I can tell.

Gameplay, however, seems to still be relatively stagnant compared to what veterans have been known to gush about. I mean, there's practically a reserved space in Technical for when someone proposes adding new Feeders/Sinkers to spice up the Game. Though it's entirely possible things are more interesting then when I was "active" in that community, I just don't know.

Girl Scout cookies are the universal exception to any diet.


Girl scout cookies are a scam.

They contain 0% girl scout.

The trick is to put on some delightfully violent music, log into NationStates and go with the flow.

Pray that the shockwaves of nuclear explosions do not accidentally kickstart perfectly natural fission reactions of untapped uranium deposits, because the fickle mindset of fate is silly like that. It happened before, there is no valid reason it won't happen again.
