I’m going on a ‘hiatus’. Can I call it that?

Hey everyone!
Well, as the title says, I’m going on a hiatus. (If I can call it that.)
How ironic that I just came back too, I know.
Don’t misunderstand though, I’m not taking a break or anything.
‘Pssh, Rando don’t need no break.’
The reason behind this hiatus, is so that I can focus 110% on finishing up Chapter 6 of ‘We Live In An MMO?!”.
Honestly, eversince I missed my intended release date for Chapter 6 back in June, I’ve had one fear for this chapter; that it will take half a year or more for it to be released. Being stuck in the hospital for those 5 days made me feel even more convinced that I should be doing something to finish up this chapter ASAP.
“But Rando, you magnificent bastard, it’s 3 times longer than your average chapter, and you’re mostly doing it by yourself!” – A beautiful fan. (You)
For me, personally, taking more than 6 months for a single ‘MMO?!’ chapter is unacceptable. It’s way too long of a waiting period for you guys, and unfortunately for Chapter 6, it’s already reaching that undesired goal.
I’ve always tried to maintain the 3 month period in-between chapters, not only to discipline myself as a creator, but to also ensure that a reasonable amount of MMO content would be released annually.
Could you imagine if only 2 chapters of MMO were released in an entire year?
That’s just insane! That’s irresponsible!
And if this keeps up, 2017 might be that year!
What’s next? 1 chapter a year?!
Basically, I’m going to temporarily stop everything else; meaning weekly comics, doodles, art and animations.
I’ll be completely focusing on finishing Chapter 6, and Randowis is going to be quiet for a while, therefore the ‘hiatus’.
As a matter of fact, I’m doubling the charge!
And if you did take the previous statement seriously..
I’ve already disabled patron-charges for the month of September, meaning that no-one is going to be charged on the 4th September 2017.
If I make nothing, you give nothing.
(If you do get charged on the 4th of September for some reason, drop me a DM(Direct Message) and we’ll resolve it together.)
I may be a perverted asshole, but I also try my best to be as honest and genuine as I can. 
I know some of you genuinely want to support Randowis even if it means getting nothing in return (and for that, you have my deepest thanks), but I won’t allow myself to freeload off your generosity.
I can foresee this hiatus stretching for a month, maybe more.
I won’t be completely silent though.
I’ll make a ‘Chapter 6’ progress post on Patreon and keep you guys updated there.
I’ll also post on Twitter whenever a tweet-worthy post comes along as well.
To be fair, if this hiatus stretches into the 4th of October 2017, I’ll disable Patron-Charges for that month too.
I’ll do my best to NOT let it stretch that far though.
That’s pretty much it.
For those who look forward to weekly comics, doodles or anything Randowis basically, I hope you’ll forgive me for this ‘period of disappointment’.
Yeah, let’s call it that.
I also hope this isn’t too shocking for you guys, and if it is, let me know in the comments. Are you okay with it? Do you hate it?
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
As always, thank you for your continuous love and support.
Love you much much, and I’ll see you when Chapter 6 is done.

  1. Day 57 without rando… I am weak… Starving for some good comics… I keep reading owlturd and pigeongazette but it is… just not enough… since rando started the hiatus… chaos broke out on the streets… Men killing men… survival of the fittest… Rando, i am not fit! I lay bare of my sins, i just can’t go on anym-….
    *drops to the ground and doesn’t move, rando’s eyes slowly fill with tears*
    With incredible effort i lift my head one last time “I wanna see Amirul use some cool spells”
    *breathing stops, everything goes quiet. Rando crying in the background*

  2. We live in an MMO HYYYYPE! Rando really knows how to do it. I keep visiting the site even though i know that there won’t be anything here yet

  3. Hey there,
    I’ve read “We live in an Mmo?” In like 10 min.
    Immediately called a friend, said “read this shit, it’s nice.”. 12 min later he called me back and said: “hope Rando got to jail with some hot guard-chicks” and the next 10 min we made theories about how they rescue Rando (or what else could happen).
    Rando (i mean you). Rando, I dare you. I double dare you motherf***er. If you stop this amazing work or don’t end it acceptable, I’ll hunt you down.

  4. I just stumbled onto your site and absolutly love your comics. Do you have them published? Can I buy copies or is it strictly a web comic?

  5. Hi Rando. I hope you are heal soon and im looking forward to the MMO chapter but look after self mate. I like to see all your work and i would hate to see you burn out. Take care and i look forward to seeing your next piece of work when ever or what ever it may be

  6. It is a little bit sad but if it means that we will get a 3 times longer “we live in a mmo?” chapter then that is absolutely fine

  7. I support your decision,hell I just love all the comics u guys throw at me. So as long as it’s not a cancellation I’m completely fine with it. Take care of yourself.

  8. Like all the others are saying, fuck you good man.
    Have the time you want dude and take care of yourself.
    Love your stuff Rando ❤
    Peace man.

  9. Hey Rando, i read & laugh thanks to you since years now, you officially became my fav artist since we live in a MMO showed up, sadly i’m a poor bitch so i never subscribe to you on patreon… ’til now ! You have my full support forever & i don’t give a fck about any kind of rewards tbh i just want you to be OK.
    I can’t stand reading that you’re in this condition atm… take care of yourself, we lve you already for what you did, so don’t think too much about what you’ll do, we’ll support you no matter what !

  10. Hey Rando! I love your weekly comics and your doodles, they put a smile on me everytime. 😀
    I think it’s a good decision to let a little “hiatus” happen and I support you on every way you’ll go!
    Of course your health is more important than anything else and if you need a break or some time for yourself, then it is fully understandable for everyone in my opinion. Just focus on what you want to do and don’t let someone interrupt or influence your work, I kind of know how you feel right now and I think it’s good that you inform us about what you want to do and what you are going to do. And sorry if my english isn’t good understandable or something ^^

  11. YOU CAN DO IT!

    I know very well what it means to keep a personal promise to yourself and be true to your heart, so I won’t say to relax and not worry about it. You got to get this done and knock this mofo out with a KO as hardcore as the one that Dolph Lundgren used to put Sylvester Stalone in a week long coma!

    After that, kick back and relax and take it easy. Work hard and play hard. Make sure you are doin what you need to do, that you love yourself and who you are.

    Glad you are outta the hospital btw!


  12. Seeing this and remembering how I just asked you to serialize “we live in a mmo” in a monthly basis kinda makes me feel embarassed. To be honest I plan to release a comic book in the distant future as a personal project, and seeing how well drawn are your works I just can’t imagine how much effort you put into them, even more when the length of each chapter is astonishing.

    At least now I see the ads on the website – maybe I’ll drop a dollar or two on your Patreon later on.

  13. A lot of artists who have no boss or manager tends to fall into this “slump”, where they mentions the need for a break due to writing fatigue, and the break ended up ruining their motivation to continue the comic, which leads to their hard-earned website falling into disrepair; I’m glad Rando isn’t one of them.It’s a really good idea to take a hiatus to work on something else you’ve promised your patrons, and it’s definitely a good idea to not charge patrons for an entire month for the hiatus, since it will keep you on Rando on his feet and be more aware that taking breaks have costly consequences. As long as Rando is alert, focused and taking a nice breather every now and again, I’m sure Randowis comic will go far.

  14. I love you so much because you’re so responsible with this kind of stuff! If you think it’s the best thing to do right now, I’ll be right behind you. I don’t blame you for taking so long on the next chapter of MMO, you add so much detail to the comics themselves that they will take a long time. Thanks for all the quality work!!

  15. Rando, you’re a true artist.
    Ever sinds I’ve found your work I keep visiting your site from time to time and binge read all your comics, because they are hilarious and quality content.
    I really don’t care it takes a bit longer to complete, because chapter 1-5 are amazing and I know you want to make chapter 6 just as good.
    But ofcourse your health has top priority!
    Love your work!

  16. Ofcourse it’s okay Rando! You do you! Don’t put too much pressure on yourself! Your work always puts a smile on my face. Your patrons will always support you!

    • P.S. Are you SURE you want to put a hold on Patreon for a month? You’re still technically working. A lot of patrons (including myself) don’t mind!
