    How dont you get your friends or other big players like dezgames to help you find content on the site? And get more ads, like surrender@20

    I wish there was a better way for spooky to get paid for this blog. Like actually paid, enough that it could support a family. I understand that balancing this 4+ hours a day probably with a full time job (8+ hours a day) could get a little taxing. Now if that job wasn’t needed…

    (I am of course assuming spooky likes this enough to warrant it being his “job”)

    On a side note, its kinda funny how he says he’s taking a break, everyone is super happy for him, a month goes by and we are all crying for him to come back. Oh how a month of article-less-ness can change one. I too fall into this category, so don’t think I’m saying anything else. Just thought it was funny.

    Good to see the comments asking Spooky to come back.
    Confirms that he got far with this site in a short time.

    Maybe it is time to give a little update on the continuation of the site Spooky?
    Maybe you need some help, I guess there are some people capable of helping where needed.

    I just hope you are OK.
    Hope to see a post from you soon.

    Come back man.

    Armoured talk is great and a big part of the aw community. Game needs a jump start and you can help with your coverage, articles, YouTube vids, interviews and guest reviews etc


  5. Hairysteed says:

    I don’t think he’s coming back :/

  6. Wolfgang says:

    I was thinking the same thing, I will start forming the search party

  7. Jeno says:

    Yeah, where is that spooky spooks… we need you in here my man!

  8. Jimbo says:

    I think we need to send a search party out for Spooky! I think he was sucked in by the tide when he was asleep on the beach.

  9. Cyan says:

    Time to come back or lose your readers base. It’s one month out. 1/12 of the year.

  10. RedFox says:

    Thank you as always for your great site, Spooky. We’re hard at work on some big changes for 2016 so there should be a lot to cover this year. :)

  11. Liam says:

    Spooky, I’ll stab a pumpkin if you don’t comeback. there is a whole lot of stuff to cover. :) don’t rush, but come back sooner or later.

  12. Zoucouy says:

    Ok there is a whole lot of new stuff to cover, time to come back

  13. Lampround says:

  14. Vingles says:

    Thanks for all the content you’ve brought to us. I’ve really enjoyed it.

    Have a nice rest, Spooky!


  15. Energycore says:

    I’m willing to sell a couple organs for one of those premium Terminators from the founder’s pack. Any takers?

  16. Woras says:

    Okay guyse, I see you next year.
    May the RNG be with you.

  17. Jeno says:

    Enjoy your well deserved time off, Spooky! Thanks for all you bring to us!

    Have a GREAT break and look forward to when you’re back.

    Its more to life than video games….. Uh… Did I just say that!!!!
    Anyways, We’ll all be here when u’re back:-)

  22. Ratel says:

    Enjoy the time away. Many thanks for this one stop shop for all that is AW! See you on the flip side. Happy New Year!

  23. A_Lethal1 says:

    Taking a break is a good idea for you and for Armoured Talk and us your readers. Otherwise you would start to hate and dread the effort it requires to put this blog out and your articles would show it. My deceased mother said it best “Find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life”

  24. BoredSights says:

    Thank you for all of your hard work. I’m happy to hear you’re taking some time off. Everybody needs time to sharpen their saws. I look forward to your return. Take care.

  25. Paul C says:

    Thank you for the outstanding site , all the best in the new year.

  26. AlteredCarbon says:

    Cheers, Spooky. Enjoy your break. =)

  27. BrockPaine says:

    Have a good and restful hiatus vacation break thingy! We appreciate the hard work you put into keeping us all informed about AW. :)

  28. Arnie says:

  29. Will_toronto says:

    its good to take a break now and then. holidays are needed. also sounds like a move.. best of luck in 2016 and see you soon.

    Why dont you add more staff members? Surrender@20 is the ArmoredTalk of LoL and it has more than just 1 staff member

    • Spooky says:

      Most staff want to be paid and considering I’m not even paid that is a bit hard. I’ve had some guest contributions for content, but that is about it. Few people are willing to take the time. Thanks for the heads up on Surrender though, I bookmarked it to take a look for ideas. They have a lot more ads than I do so maybe they are able to run their site as more of a business. The ads are not in your face though, mostly appearing in the bottom and above the comments. I’ll have to see how many authors they have.

      • tim says:

        The site’s manager is named ‘Moobeat’. Im think all the staff are his friends, & im pretty pretty sure they dont get paid. LoL is the most popular PC game so it prob isnt hard for him to find helpers

        • Woras says:

          Stats please? I doubt LoL is most popular.
          Plus you have western world and eastern world. So….yeah 😀

          • Primordial says:

            Don’t need stats for that,

            Last DotA II tournament has what? 18 million USD prize pool?

            LoL > DotA II

            You do the math, no other game in this industry even comes close to giving that much prize pool without being successful/popular.

            • Woras says:

              And how much last LoL tournament gave out?

              • Primordial says:

                google it, i don’t follow that game since i don’t like it..

                pure reflex and speed with a little strategy.

                I prefer tank games like wot/aw due to the fact that personal reflex and speed is only a minor element to success. I don’t have the fastest trigger finger nor the greatest reflexes, but I can definitely outwit and out strategize 99% other players and that’s obviously all I need for unicumhood.

  31. LoveCrusader says:

    Yeah, personal time is always important. I guess it is really tough to find a sustainable balance of how much effort you can put into this project here. We have seen in with SilentStalker…
    I wish you all the best and hope you come back, once the batteries are full again!

    • Spooky says:

      It still amazes me how much time Armored Talk has taken, and I think SilentStalker when he was running For the Record would have said the same thing. Outside looking in few would guess it…until they tried!

      • CaptianNemo says:

        Yah, he spent way way way too much time behind the scenes. IIRC it was a good 2-3 hours hunting out the days info, another 2-4 typing and emailing. And then posting. And that was if nothing else happened during that time period… And then do it all over again the next day.

  32. Bob says:

    Take care man. I will miss this it was my coffee reading every day.

  33. Petitbonum says:

    Thanks a lot for the great work.I wish you a nice break and an happy new year.
    Sorry for my poor english

    Dont burn out, damn it! 😀
    Need a brake? Go get some time off from this.
    Need a brake? Go to mechanic’s (lol im so clever)

    […] of my return to Armored Warfare have been greatly diminished. By the time I returned from my hiatus, started a comeback, and had a personal setback….Armored Warfare had lost momentum. Not just […]
