Goodbye Starbook.

20th October 2008 at 9:13 pm

Dear Chibi,

3 months ago, Kaz, Markos and I added the facebook application- “Star Book” a interactive online strategy game of Starcraft. The game was very exciting and we have been playing it everyday since. Starbook was the reason I even came onto Facebook- facebook itself was not always so exciting. Later on, Kat also joined us in playing the game, and had lots of fun attacking and looting off other empires.

Recently, we’ve been thinking about the future of starbook- can we really play this forever? We have to constantly check back every hour to use up allocated resources and to continuously monitor our empire and game. It’s an endless cycle and no one can really “win” since there’s no end or a finish line.
However, the decision to delete the application came upon us yesterday while Markos and I were doing the dishes. We’ve put in a lot of time and effort into it and it’s starting to become a bit unhealthy. We knew right from the beginning this time would eventually come, (as with earth2025)- and perhaps it was time to let go.

I guess there was never a better time to end the game than now, when we’ve reached the highest ranking we’ve achieved in the past 3 months. There were some crazy wars going on, and I guess we got our ‘revenge’ in the end :) The Chibi Empire got into the top ladder for 4th largest Terran Empire, yay. Kazzy was ranked #15 (top 2%) strongest empire out of the 600+ others.

Good bye to the awesome KAZ alliance, Death Soldier (zerg), Chibi (terran), Martoss (protoss) and Cold Water (terran).

I admit, it’s going to take some time to break out of the starbook habits- but with the application removed, the empire destroyed, there’s nothing left for us to hang onto. SO here’s the blog entry dedicated to the 3 months on the game. At the end of the day… that’s the only thing we can take with us =)
