Site Update: Surprise going on hiatus

This man is suspected of having lured young COH players away to play C&C 3 instead. Beware.

This man is suspected of having lured young COH players away to play C&C 3 instead. Beware.

Friends, fellow Romans, noobs and COHers: ‘Tis with a heavy heart that I announce the temporary departure of Steven “Surprise” Uray, who announced to me last week that he must take a leave of absence from writing for Rifles Ready! as he prepares for the Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath event at WCG. I have been assured that this hiatus isn’t necessarily permanent, and that Surprise will occasionally pop in with wisdom and advice when he has time. His avatar, of the enigmatic Oro from Street Fighter III, will remain proudly on display under our authors list. He will of course, continue to post on GR.org, presumably focused on the Kane’s Wrath forums. He will, presumably, lurk on the COH forums to make sure all is well and that children turn in prior to curfew at night. Fear not; Surprise will always be a part of the COH community. His frequent words here will of course, be missed until he can find the wherewithal to return (Relic, how about that COH: Eastern Fronts expansion to bring our boy back into the fold?).

In the meantime, this is an open invitation to all COH players who feel like they would be a good replacement for Surprise: EMAIL ME IF YOU WANT TO CONTRIBUTE! I’d love to have more authors.

    What motivated Surprise to play KW, out of curiousity?

    I always thought the general consensus was that KW is imbalanced and focused not on sound tactics but pure attrition?

  2. You’ll have to ask he man himself… but I suspect it’s because he’s ready for a new challenge and COH has gotten stale for him after many thousands of games.

    I myself am a longtime C&C fan, but C&C3 and KW don’t hold that much interest for me as a competitive game because SHIT DIES SO FAST.

    It’s TOO arcade-like.

    It was for the competition, along with change of pace.
