I think it's safe to say, that EMB is only a tag we put at the front of our names. I think, I hope im wrong, but I am the only one still motivated to keep EMB underway. Currently, I feel it's 90% of my content on our channel ( I have a commentary and a personal series to be uploaded), I am the only one recruiting, fulfilling the squads needs and paying for our facilities and running the website. This is the reason I stopped EMB back in March 2011, I do not enjoy running EMB by myself with every sole responsibility on me. I feel that the squad relies on me to keep it going, when everyone should impose their own weight and responsibility to running the squad. People are expecting results from the squad, events, social on teamspeak, playing together - they expect me to make it happen. I have tried to encourage people to be more active, to play together but at the end of the day, it's not me who should be making the extra mile, it's each individual and member.
Moreover, if I am spending this much time and dedication on a squad and it's youtube channel, then I will stop and spend the time and dedication on my personal channel because I don't feel the need to pull everyone's weight.
Therefore, I am 99% I am closing EMB for the last and final time. If I do decide to do this, there is no come-back as I intend to join another squad, probably a youtube squad on MW3, PC.
I am not 100% sure yet, and EMB is currently still online and running, this is just my thought and intentions. It makes me sad to say such a thing, but it's true. Because at the end of the day, I am here to have fun too and I would rather be in an atmosphere where other people are doing the same thing as me.
If you have any comments to make, please post, but keep it civil. Unless radical change is happening then EMB will close, however, I have the feeling everyone feels the same as me.
