I'm sure many of you noticed my recent absence from Team Dawn- about a week to be exact. I was grounded from the computer for certain reasons, and It really helped open my eyes. I've been so wrapped up in this team I haven't been able to go out and have fun, something we all need to do more often. I've been so incredibly stressed in Team Dawn without even realizing it. Not only did my homework slip because of working here so much, there were wars against annoying people, battles against cheap players, and running a team without any help (although Kasmeargy was a wonder when it came to the points shop, I couldn't have done it without him) that added to all the stress.
I've decided that Team Dawn, started June '08, shall now end in June '09. For good. I'm not meant for competitive battling, I've lost my edge. Not to mention the idiocy of most battlers, something that luckily failed to leak into this team for the most part. Any person wielding a full team of Over-used spam can win any game, and claim to be amazing because of it. There's really nothing good about it. And above all, it's just a game. It shouldn't keep me tied here, and it shouldn't keep all of you here either.
I noticed that Red1062 did wonderfully here while I was gone, and that Crazie even had to not be lazy. Thank you red, thank you everyone for your commitment to this team. I've met wonderful people, made amazing friends, and I hope the rest of you feel the same. Like many things, though, I suppose it has to come to an end. You've all been so great, and I'm so sorry to let you all down. But I'm afraid I'm past my prime for running a team and besides that, no longer have a taste for competitive battling or competitive anything in Pokémon, and with that Team Dawn shall eventually come to an end.
I'm sorry... To everyone.
