After the 2016 season

Post by Ben Atkins on Fri Feb 24, 2017 6:08 pm

I have no other idea how to start this post so I think I'll get to the point quickly; 2016 will be the last season of Dash Cup I run.

Quite simply, the time and motivation for me to run the series has gone downhill quickly, so while we've got a good season going, I feel like now is a good time to call it quits, instead of putting in low effort into a future season.

2016 will still be finished with videos for every round. I have no time-frame for the end of the season but I will finish out the season. All the races are run, but I just have to make videos.

I'm sorry to everyone who was excited for the 2017 season, and in particular any new entrants that had expressed interest or had been accepted. I was pretty set on running that season, but I've found that I've not really been excited for a 2017 season to come around.

Thank you to everyone for making the four years Dash Cup has run for incredibly fun. I would have stopped this a long time ago if it wasn't for you guys. You all made it pretty great.

-Ben

The popularity of Dash Cup speaks for itself. Thank you, Ben, for all of the fun that I and others have watching your videos and following your series! Very Happy We're looking forward to witnessing how the 2016 season turns out.

Sad to hear that it's ending, Dash Cup was really fun to watch. Thank you for all of the great races you put on.

I am shocked and rather disappointed. I loved Dash Cup and was beyond excited to almost be a part of it. I wish I could help you out with video making.

I'm sure that there's many here that would be willing to help you out. Like Ceej did.

I won't force anything upon you though. I am simply disappointed and would enjoy to see it back on the right track.

Thanks so much for many many enjoyable races! Even if I was not a part of any of them!

YOU AIN'T RUNNING A SERIES REEEEEEEE /s

Honestly it was probably the most fun I have ever had in the canon. It was a hell of a run, and it sucks to see it end, but in the end of the day, it's up to you to take the decision and it is better to end it with a bang than in a whimper

It's a shame I didn't really get into it until this season or I probably would have had more fun with it. I've been invested in Dash Cup more than any league this season by far. I knew this was coming sooner or later (since all of us are growing up and becoming useful people lol), but you never seemed to slow interest in this despite that. It was fun to watch each week and see its growth as a league even in the latest season. You've given my namesake a restart to his career.

Thank you for everything and I can't wait to watch the remaining season. Very Happy

So, is Dash Cup going to be mention only or are you going to kill it?
