I'm coming out of retirement!

Hi guys!

As you may know, I wasn't able to play TT last season due to some university + job.

But now things seem to be much better in terms of time (at least I have a computer with Internet during the whole day) and I would like to start playing TT again.

I'm starting this thread just to try to understand what changes have been made in the past season, so I don't commit any errors in my first weeks of competition.

I've also seen that TT now has PR, but I guess it's just for players who will start their absence now. So, I need to start from scratch, right?

Well, I guess this is all for now and I'll be looking forward to start playing TT again.

Regards,

Andre aka Sylvester

Bem-vindo de volta!

Como vais perceber, muita coisa mudou... não sei se exatamente pra melhor... me parece que os bons tempos já passaram.

Boa sorte!
