I really love this game, I really do. But I cannot deal with constantly missed deadlines and the feeling that my custom and that of my co-managers, isn't valued the way I feel it should be. I personally find this very stressful. So I think this last turn has been my last proper turn.

I have a few turns yet I've paid for so as I wind down the clubs, if I've promised to buy a player then I will and loaned players will be returned.

I will also be offering all the Python Code I made for this game, free to anyone who wants it. I will set out what this code does in a later post.

So, it's not quite goodbye, but I'm packing my bags at least.

All the best

      Hi Martin, thank you for your message, you'll be another I miss. Not particularly in the turn itself: I was lucky enough to win against a good team this week. It's really just what became obvious from the beginning of me joining... the waiting, the irregular times, the lack of comms was a problem, the fact we can't expect it to change is compounding it. The great game, which it is, and good people, yourself included, have made the decision a lot harder but I feel more settled for having made it. As far as reconsidering it: Never say never, just extremely unliklely smile.
      All the best. B

        That's a shame. I can only say what I do now and that's submit my turn and wait for it to drop through the door.

        Don't expect it at at a certain time and you won't be disappointed.

        Anyway, good luck and if there is a copy of the code then I'd like to send a copy to my son to see what he makes of it. I can provide contact details.

        Hi Graham. Yes its a shame but whilst you're no doubt right about the best attitude to take, Im afraid I cant do it!

        You'd be very welcome to the code. If you would pm me a suitable email address I'll set to it today.

        All the best

          I'm not sure why you think I don't value all the managers custom? I always answer support tickets quickly, not sure what else I can do.

          Lets be clear, managers don't leave the game because they are so upset that a turn has gone out on a Friday instead of a Thursday. They leave because they are not getting the instant success that was expected.

          I don't think I've ever known a manager top of the league to quit. This obviously gets more prevalent towards the end of the season as it's realised they won't win anything this season so it's really no surprise as Summit is a building game and some people are not able to cope with that. Not a criticism, everyone is different.

          I'm not sure I am 100% comfortable with a manager that has stated an intention to leave the game ("last proper turn") being involved in transfer market deals with other managers. In the interests of fairness to all managers and since you find the whole thing "very stressful" I will re-set your two teams after the current League 3 turn and if you open a support ticket I will let you know how to claim a refund.

          Thanks for playing anyway, sorry to see you go.

          Cheers.... Steve

          "I don't think I've ever known a manager top of the league to quit."
          I've had 8 or 9 games, with Lytham, drew with Panthers, beat Shadow Hunters and drew with NK Rangers. After this turn my first team will be 275 rated. I've had 3 or 4 games with St Annes, just won against The Candylions have a 370 rated team and 90m in the bank. I expected promotion for both teams next season with full plans for a 40,000 seater and 60,000 seater stadium respectively, fully budgeted and full capacity.

          "Lets be clear, managers don't leave the game because they are so upset that a turn has gone out on a Friday instead of a Thursday."
          No but this one is leaving because you have said, and I paraphrase 'I don't have time to update everyone every time there is a processing issue' which is indicitive of the esteem with which you hold your customers. And it's isn't ever a one delay, it is delay piled on delay without warning or explanation (and that is the hard part). Its an average of 13 day turnaround and a season only 30 odd game weeks in after over a calendar year. Most of all it's the wonderful managers and superb game that deserves so much better.

          "I will re-set your two teams after the current League 3 turn and if you open a support ticket I will let you know how to claim a refund."
          As I'm making a principled stand I won't be claiming any refund thank you. I will however, expect the kind people who have lent me players to have them returned.

          Furthermore, my details are known to Michael, PC, Darren O and Graham Hewitt. If anyone would like any info re the work I've done on Python I'm only to happy to share.

          I will keep an eye on this site in the future and be only to delighted to rejoin if there is a change of approach.

          With my very best wishes because you managers have been one of the main things I've enjoyed about this game so much.

            I'm leaving the game too after playing for about 10 months and it's nothing whatsoever to do with not getting instant success or not wanting to build long term. It's simply that, for me, the game runs way too slow. Some managers don't mind the game speed but everyone is different and for me it takes away a lot of the enjoyment and passion for it. Good luck all!

            It's a real shame to see you guys unhappy and ready to leave. I've enjoyed this game for so many years I'd love to see more folk stay and get similar out of it.

            Steve has made it clear that he's in a position where he cannot stick to the deadlines with the same discipline that some industries or larger companies would. Some of us are accommodating of this, if it's a dealbreaker it seems maybe it isn't for you.
