    Hey guys, Valo here.

    So, my schedule is more settled in a manner that I can definitely say that I'm good to come back to the site in general, and might pick up some Blood Bowl action later in the year. I mean, not right now - I suspect both seasons of BB1 and BB2 are midway, and even if they weren't? ... I'm guilty in saying that I'm about to drop one of the key eaters of my time for a bit, Crusader Kings 2, and I'm about to start playing Stellaris, which is pretty much EU4 in space. :D

    Still, as I said, glad to be back. I'll drop my name in the hat for call-ups for the next season of BC (BB1) and will be sticking around in general until then to give an opinion on such-n-such. Incidentally, if someone can advise some fairly bog-standard teaching vids, that'd be great - I haven't picked the game up for about five months and it's safe to say that I'm a) rusty and b) don't trust the AI to play at all in a manner like a player would. After a couple of vids... then I'll feel happy to actually play people in CTA and stuff. :p

    Hey Valo, welcome back.

    I too am going to be playing far too much Stellaris when it comes out next monday :p

    Been reading up on it and wishing it was out now.

    I'm looking forward to stellaris as well, though I probably won't be buying it immediately. Unless I start getting rave reviews from all the friends who pre-ordered it.

    In theory I have been a big fan of paradox for over a decade now, but in reality I don't play their games much anymore. I have been saying that I wanted to see them do a space/ fantasy game for a long time. I am very interested in what they can do in the grand strategy genre when they are not constrained by replicating history.



    And welcome back Val!

    Cheers guys, appreciate the warm welcome. :D Glad to have time to commit to this again.

    Thanks, Street. And yeah, I've been reading too much about it, been watching the livestream highlights and the like, and having gotten the super-ultimate £55-ish bundle pack, I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in. :p

    Thanks man!
    I'll let you know what I think then, since I got the giant bundle pack. As for their more recent games, I like to pick a start date and just see how history develops. The only real issue I've noticed is in CK2, which is admittedly about four years old now, is that massive upheavals are rare in vanilla gameplay. -shrugs-

    Well hi there and welcome. At least you've had good reasons for why you were gone. :D
