So, this sucks.

I'm sorry I have to make another one of these addresses. I'm not a fan of them, nor of what they signify. They signify that there are problems. But we're still not going to die.

I've been watching and waiting for Corruption/Anarchy 16.2 just like the rest of you. Awhile back, I made the decision to focus more on Amm, and leave Bryson to his show. In hindsight, that was a mistake. Because honestly I had no idea what was going on with that show this entire time. So I was logging in, seeing nothing, and getting back to whatever else I was doing. And I've grown increasingly frustrated. On some level, I should absolutely have stepped in earlier and made things happen. That being said, I'm not sure I could have and I'm positively thrilled to see the efforts of Brooks, Gray, Abel Steele and others in trying to breathe new life into this fed.

It's no secret that I don't have the time to do everything here. I can't be what Nick Bryson was to this federation for years. Second-hand, I've heard people like Jaro say things like "there is no FMW without Nick Bryson". What Nick has done is incredible in terms of workload and in terms of creative contribution. But Nick Bryson cannot do that anymore, apparently. And I have some idea as to why. I'll let him speak for himself when he chooses. But for right now...

My plan as of now is to cancel 16.3, as we have lost a full month due to non-productivity. The V&P threads for Anarchy/Corruption were posted at the end of May, with the idea they'd be up by the end of June. And here we are in AUGUST. And that's not acceptable. It's not fun, and I'm not happy about it. In my eyes, we need to get that month back, and the only way to do that is to cancel a show. So my plan right now is to put V&P threads up on Friday for Catalyst. If you have an objection to that, now is the time to speak out. If you think that it's okay to pump out shows once every two months... then say so. I obviously don't agree, but maybe some of you are fine with it.

There are some things, storyline-wise, that needed to happen at .3. In my estimation, none of them needed a match. So there will be a pre-show for Catalyst, posted shortly after the closing of V&P, which will feature nothing but segments designed to pull off some of those reveals. Some of them were quite good, so it should be a good read.

What I need from you all is just a "I'M HERE, PLEASE BOOK ME". Because I suspect that a whole lot of the people booked on Catalyst have left, and I'm not going to be happy with turnout. That's part of the reason I want to skip .3. If Skyler Striker and Hannibal Frost are no longer here, I want to get their storylines resolved immediately instead of having to book them for 2 shows because Skyler is the C4 champion. If you weren't about to be booked, you'll be booked. I'll squeeze you in there, somehow.

We'll have some discussions about what needs to happen with the creative staff. At minimum, I need people who have stepped up to continue to do so. Ammunition overwhelmed me with the amount of support I got, and while I'd like to say "we're good with that", the sad truth is that we are obviously not. We need more people stepping up, and perhaps we need some changes in leadership. And yes, that includes me. But for right now... who's out there? What say you?

You're right this sucks. I have no problems with going onto Catalyst but I'm relatively new so I don't know if it would upset the old heads. But for whatever show it is, book me. I'm here.

Incidentally, congratulations on being the new Abandoned Champion. I'm sorry that celebration is a bit dampened by the lack of a complete show and all, but it's seriously awesome for you and I'm glad you've got it.

And congrats to Blake Vendetta as well for his new belt.

Well, if memory serves me correctly (and it may not) I do believe that Levi had gotten himself booked into that Frost/Striker match making it a triple threat for the C4 title.

If that is not the case please let me know and we can plan from there. If it is, I will gladly show up and compete for one of the most prestigious prizes in FMW.

We've got to work to bring it back. If we all had that attitude, the place would die for sure.

I dunno, I WOULD like to delay my inevitable loss for as long as possible, but that probably wouldn't be for FMW's best LOL. I ain't got a problem with skipping it.

Hello guys.

Firstly I'll address the suggestion that we skp .3 and just run catalyst, which is really not a great idea. We have a lot of things that need to be built to and accomplished that we planned to do on .3 that drastically effect catalyst. Just shoehorning in a show because of 'time' isn't the right direction to go.

On the issue of time, however, I'll be 100% honest. When I first left this fed for a year I missed a grand total of three shows under the second gen HWs and that was even when people like Jaro were still around. This is not the first time we've had slow periods and Im sure it wont be the last, but people were completely content to just sit by and complain instead of standing up to reach out to help over this past year and its a continual attitude of 'what have you done for me lately' that makes me so frustrated.

I'm going through one of the roughest transitions in my life right now, working six days a week, my breakup, and my other family issues. The only person who reached out to me to talk about FMW, and other things, really is Abel. Anwyl and I had a convo that I was excited about too. I'm the most accesable guy on this forum and I've been carrying the fed since basically its inception, but it seems like people would rather just sit back and complain about how long things take instead of actively looking to participate. Continuing with my honesty, I have to say you get out of this fed what you put in. My post I made about how I wrote 66% of all the things I HW is completely true and the burden that is expected out of me and edible is unfair. I'm really happy you guys were able to get something quick up, If you guys want to see the results I have you can see them, but Im not going to sugar coat this because of egos or whatever.

Also, Skyler, stop being a douche.

Obviously we all have lives and issues, and I've been there for anyone whos ever needed it, even outside of the parameters of the fed.

I would like to think that I offered you my help and any assistance I could possibly give Nick. I'd be happy to write as many matches as needed just to make it easier for you.

Like I said on the other thread, I have a lot of free time on my hands so I'd be happy to write several matches and/or segments for y'all.

Here's what I'm going to say. A card is going up Monday. Whether that's. 3 or Catalyst... shall be decided. I want to gain a better idea of what you guys want for that, and I want to make sure the cards are okay. So... I want a clear indication of what would be preferred. So tomorrow night and Sunday I plan on being on AIM, and here. So get in touch.

If Hannibal shows up, then I will too. But in any other case I'm not really interested.

I don't intend to sound like a douchebag, sorry if it comes off like that Nick. I'm not saying you should stop the fed on my account. I came back intending to compete while not writing matches - and was quite honest about it too. That's still my attitude towards it for the most part.
