Honestly, never have I been so enthusiastic in my life about a mod, a single modification, for ETS2 which makes it a multiplayer game. It was nearly 7 years ago. Unfortunately though, I can't say I still have that same enthusiasm which I had back then. Trolls, traffics, toxic people shouting and swearing on CB radio, an immense VTC competition which leads recruitment teams of VTC's to do relentless promotions on chat, uncontrollably increasing numbers of players, amateurs especially the ones with the triple trailers and worst of all, others who also have same opinions like me which led them to lose their enthusiasm too, which results to slightly bored but still hanging around -because there is no other option- TMP players.
Spending more than 2.000 hours, countless kilometers while managing 4 VTC's with combined number of 183 members and observing thought me that including TMP, everything in life has a lifetime. There is newborn era with joy and eagerness. Then there is childhood with intellectual learnings. Then youth comes with joy and high spirits with excellent efficiency. Then there is adulthood with experience and serenity. I think TMP is at the moment where youth ends and adulthood begins. Who knows, how long it will be.. The one and only thing that I am definitely sure of is the enormity of support comes from the equally enormous member community. I am happy of being in this community and I will always be. As long as I'm concerned about my past in TMP, I will feel honour and pride about it. But at this point giving a chance to SCS about their MP mod: Convoy, would be the appropriate thing.
As it comes to your question, @DJ Jefferz, I am absolutely sure TMP will go on. Players would play both of them. Effects on TMP though, is an open-to-discussion subject.
