There have been some well known blogging voices that have faded into the sunset this year. This happens all the time, but it still seems odd to read a post announcing a blog's end or a blog going on hiatus.
Today, Cynwise of Cynwise's Warcraft Manual announced that he's going to take a break from blogging until next year.
I'm going to miss Cyn's walls of text, his self deprecating humor, and his sharp insights into PvP and BGs in WoW. He was always thorough in his analyses, and he never believed that BGs were so hard that a noob couldn't excel at them. After one of his entries in his magnum opus, The Decline and Fall of Warlocks in Cataclysm, I quipped that if he brought that level of detail to his job, I'd want him on my side in an argument at work. He never, and I do mean never, came unprepared to a topic.
I've moved Cyn's link down to the Blogs in Mothballs section, but I'm really tempted to move it to the References area.
As with Ratters when he retired, I'll miss ya, Cyn. Don't be a stranger.
