Mini state of the Academy address -massadoobie - Aug 13 06:09am

I'm sure those of you who have been around a while are saying "Mini? HA! Doobie can't give just a MINI address, they're always huge!" Well watch me!

There's been a lot of talk about the state of the Academy as of late. Here's my take on things. We're in a dead zone. JK2 has plateau'd and we're all waiting for JK:JA to come out. People are tired, vacationing, or simply drained out of JK2. But things are changing. The JACs are all coming out of hibernation (except JACen, he's been holding down the fort, go JACe!), we're getting the JAT ranks reorganized, the JAK ranks have been filled, and the transition to JA is being planned as we speak. Things are looking up right now for the future. I should warn you though that those of you who are disheartened and either considering retiring or have already retired, things won't get better or change quickly. We're focusing all of our energy on getting ready for JA, so there won't be any noticeable changes until JA gets closer to release. The JK2 incarnation of the Academy is, in my opinion, running smoothly, with classes, dedicated teachers, and good students. Just wait out the "dog days" and rest assured that, behind the scenes, we're getting ready to bring the JA to the next level!

And now I'm off to my cave to hibernate more until I need to make another appearance ;)

Personally i can't wait to get into the academy again when JA is out. It will be so much more personisled than JK2 is. player styles will be able to differ a lot more too!
WOOT!!

I know our transition will be at least as smooth as the SWG launch. Wait that's a bad thing. S**t!

Dead zone? I think not! We've had a few slow nights on the server, but I think the Academy is alive and well.

ok, were still going full speed... er... quarter speed.

ok, just a question about the transition, are we going to convert totally into JK:JA, with everything, as in servers, classes, etc? or are we going to still have the JK2 part going, and slowly get more JK:JA stuff?
