I've always told myself that I would continue to do the event as long as I was having fun doing it. For the better part of two years, I have really enjoyed hosting the event. Recently, however I've found that the fire I once had for Smackdown is no longer present and as a result, the quality of my own casting and the event in general have degraded significantly. In addition, the common problems of finding players and co-casters, maintaining an ESO connection, and having a working high end PC and internet connection puts added pressure on the days of casts, especially on the single day of the week I actually consider a "day off."
All that aside, I do plan on continuing casting, just on a less frequent time schedule. I plan to host smaller, more spread out events which I'll announce on this forum. These events will be more well organized with pre-selected set of players and casters for the whole event. I also am hoping that with less of a time commitment on Saturdays that I'll find myself doing more informal streams just for fun.
I consider this an end of an era (for me personally) and as such want to thank some people, without whom, Smackdown would have never been possible.

Without you two, Smackdown would have never existed in it's current format. Smackdown and the competitive scene owes it's existence to you two.
My faithful co-caster. Absolutely.

The community lives because of you guys. Be proud of that.
All the players, Smackdown would have been really boring if we only ever watched @Aizamk

And finally, the viewers. I would have quit ages ago if there wasn't someone to talk to. For anyone who ever tuned in, my public speaking skills will forever be in your debt.
It's time for a break; thanks for reading and thanks for watching!
