It’s been slightly more than a year since I joined Gamepress as part of the writing staff. At the time, I wormed myself into the organisation while they were swamped and wrote a big piece on an aspect Gamepress didn’t really write about much until then:
And I wrote a fair bit. A lot in fact. Far too much, one would say now. Embarrassingly so. Still, reading the guide back now, the information did age quite well (even if we going all out on offense is the way to go now on JP and eventually on NA too). It has a lot of the thought processes I still use today in there, and I am sure that especially new Masters can pick up a thing or two.
I added some notes where I think the guide aged particularly badly - and read through it to make sure it doesn’t, uh, suck.
I’m still slightly ashamed by the length, but hopefully it’s enjoyable.
