And for those who are curious what we've been doing this week:

Monday: Jeff, Daniela, Malte, and I toured some locations of interest in Hamburg and toured a Russian sub in the harbor while the others had some business meetings.

Tuesday: We had an in-depth discussion of the approach to the company's marketing and then spent some time working.

Wednesday: We talked everything and anything related to Steam, led by Francis, who is a heavy Steam user, and Jeff, Daniela, Francis and I took a bus tour of the city in the afternoon.

Thursday: The team is talking programming stuff as I type this. We'll spend the rest of the day working, as well as spend some doing an interview with a UK podcast, and then gather at a local pub to watch the Germany vs. US World Cup game. As the lone American on the team, it should be interesting.

The evenings this week have been spent going to dinner and having a good time. As you can see, one night we had dinner at Markus' apartment, which is down the hall from the new OOTP Developments offices in Hamburg.

I had never been outside the US before this week, so it's been a fun experience for me. We've all had a good time and we've accomplished a lot during our working sessions. No new games have been discussed, since we have our hands full with the current batch. However, I've had a look at the very early alpha version of BTS Football, along with some glimpses at FHM 2015 and Jorin's current work on the 3D element in OOTP 15, and I can say we're making plenty of progress on those things.

According to OOTP itself, OOTP MLB play (modern and historical) outnumbers OOTP fictional play three to one.

Five thousand thanks for a non-modder? I never thought I'd see the day. Thank you for your support.

Glad that I attended last years 2013 meet and greet in NYC, as I got to meet most of the folks in the pictures.

Except Markus however, he was back at the hotel feeling ill. I think he just wanted to avoid his adoring fans!
