Addicts 5-Year Look Back: Fuzzy Thoughts About Burnout

Reaching back into the Addicts archives once again for another TSTO Anonymous meeting.  This time a topic I think we all can relate to…TSTO burnout.

Something I’m sure we’ve all experienced at one time or another.  Heck, I’ve been doing this site for 5 years and playing the game for almost 6 I’d be lying if I said I never felt burnt out on it.  People change, priorities change and life gets in the way, so it’s only natural to feel a little burnt out over the game.  What’s important is what you do when you’re burnt out and how you handle it overall.

So without further ado, I turn it over to 2016 Wookiee…

Addicts 5-Year Look Back: The Start of TSTO Anonymous

Back in when we started this site in 2013 we tried to separate ourselves from the loads of other TSTO blogs out there at the time by being different.  In addition to the traditional gameplay posts we wanted to bring you guys different content, fun content.  We wanted to be different, and what better way for a site called TSTO Addicts to be different than to hold regular meetings of TSTO Anonymous?

These meetings were spearheaded by the one, the only, Wookiee.  While I’ve got a few “classic” TSTO-Anon posts I plan to run over the next few days, I wanted to start out this Look Back series with two of the very first TSTO Anonymous posts, since we’re all Addicts here right? It’s funny to see a lot of the “issues” from 2013 still hold true today!

So without further ado, I turn it over to Wookiee circa 2013…

Addicts Live! Bonus Episode: 4 Year Blogiversary Q & A

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Recently we celebrated our 4-year Blogiversary!!  (ok so it was a month ago…) In continuing with what we did for our previous anniversaries, as part of the celebration we gave you guys the opportunity to ask us anything you’d like with the promise that we’d answer your questions (or as many as we could).  And as always you guys came through in a big way!

4 years is kind of a big deal to us, since none of us thought we’d still be doing this after all these years, so we wanted to be sure to take the time out to do the special anniversary video for you guys.  We originally planned on doing this as a special Addicts Live! and live streaming it for you to watch and comment along with us, but alas the schedules got the best of us.  So we did the next best thing…we recorded it live!

And of course, like in the past, this year’s video was full of it’s own spotty wi-fi technical glitches.  Wookiee froze, I froze and Patric made fun of us…thankfully we don’t have these kinds of problems with the live stream! So I apologize in advance for the crappy video quality & weird pauses from wi-fi dropping.

Oh and be sure to check out our new Addicts Live! music!  Patric conjured that up for us and we love it!

Anyway…we hope you enjoy it!

 

Well what do YOU think?  Crazier than last year?  Did you laugh with us (or at us?)  Did you at least laugh at our jokes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Addicts 3 Year Blogiversary Q & A Part 2 (and an Announcement)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Last week we shared part 1 of our 3 year blogiversary Q&A, where we answer your questions about anything and everything!  And in typical Addicts fashion…we couldn’t keep it in one video!  We just talk WAYYYYYY to much!  So of course we had to do it in two parts!

Unfortunately, Bunny had some other things going on and couldn’t stay with us for all of Part 2…but we hope you still enjoy what Wookiee and I refer to as the Wookiee and Alissa comedy hour 🙂

And now on another note…. Continue reading

Addicts 3 Year Blogiversary Q & A Part 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Recently we celebrated our 3 year Blogiversary!!  In continuing with what we did for our previous anniversaries, as part of the celebration we gave you guys the opportunity to ask us anything you’d like with the promise that we’d answer your questions (or as many as we could).  And as always you guys came through in a big way!

3 years is kind of a big deal to the three of us, since none of us thought we’d still be doing this after all these years, so we wanted to be sure to take the time out to do the special anniversary video for you guys.  Of course with 3 schedules to compete with..it wasn’t easy.  Trying to work around Wookiee and my work schedule, and Bunny’s busy schedule with her kids took a little doing…but we managed to all sit down in the same place (even if for only a little bit…you’ll see more on that in part 2) to record the video.

So don’t mind our post work, post running kids around, full of crazy selves in this video.  As I had just finished work and getting Riley into bed, Wook was just getting ready to go to work & Bunny had spent the day wrangling teenagers and a crazy husband.  So we’re just a little crazier in this one than in past ones…especially once Wookiee discovered sound effects 😉

Anyway…we hope you enjoy it!

Oh and my apologies in advance for the poor video quality on my end.  Apparently wi-fi at the new house isn’t as great as wi-fi at the old house. (even though it’s the exact same plan, provider and modem…)  So yea, you can hear me..but you can’t always see me.  So I apologize in advance. 🙂

Well what do YOU think?  Crazier than last year?  Did you laugh with us (or at us?)  Did you at least laugh at our jokes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Woo-Hoo It’s Our 3 Year Blogiversary!

Addicts 2 Year Blogiversary Q & A Part 2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated our 2 year Blogiversary!!  In continuing with what we did for our 1 year anniversary, as part of the celebration we gave you guys the opportunity to ask us anything you’d like with the promise that we’d answer your questions (or as many as we could).  And as always you guys came through in a big way!

Because our Blogiversary is kinda a big deal to Bunny, Wookiee and I, we wanted to do something extra special to answer the questions.  And it wasn’t easy, but we got all of our schedules together and created another Q & A video!  Giving y’all another peek inside the craziness that is the Addicts….especially when Bunny, Wookiee and I get together. And with so much crazy between the three us us we had to once again break it into two parts! (check out part 1 here) #warningitsevenlongerthanlastyear #warningthisonemayinvolvesomecrying

Well what do YOU think?  Now that you’ve seen nearly 2hrs of us…still want to stick around?  Any other questions you wished we’d answered?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
