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. I guess we have to face it guys. There might be a chance – only a chance! – that rando could maybe with a tiny chance have been somehow injured or maaayyybee even worse. Unless the patreons know any better? Twitter is silent, he doesn’t answer us here and as far as i can tell his facebook page is dead too… I will keep coming back every day twice or thrice to check but… you know…

  2. Rando, I miss your comics man and your humour its been 3 months and you didn’t posted anything to atleast give a sign that you’re still working on chapter 6 overall, i can bet other users are missing you too i check your comics everyday and hope if theres something new i also recheck your old comics for a laughs and goofs (All of them and bless them all) I hope nothing happend If you’re all good i’m fine by it, but atleast give a sign of a live.

    Miss ya lad

  3. Hope you’re feeling better buddy, not because i want to read more of you (even tho i miss ur arts), but simply because I hope that the artist who made me & my mates laugh so hard has the damn right to live happily. Take care, much love from france

  4. it’s been two months… i’m so cold, father…. they said that i would be able to see a light at the end of the tunnel, but all i see is darkness… please, end this misery of mine… i long to see fresh ink, to once again exhilarate at the exuberance of your comics… when will you return, father?

    In all seriousness though, you ok?

  5. Rando, I’m waiting for the post about anything. I won’t give up. I will check the website every single day just to see if you posted anything, even if it would be informing that you have to take even more time for that. Just say something…

  6. so i’ve checked in here every day since this post and am still waiting for the next chapter with all hopes up. Ain’t givin’ up.

  7. Rando you bastard, say something for f**k sake! How long do we have to wait for any kind of post that says at least how you feel or what progress you made on the chapter?!

  8. Just for protocol, it’s matter of honor to check it up in the mornings and beforesleepings. Digging to the depths of anticipation. Deeper we are, better chapter 6.

  9. 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*

    • Please Rando! Shen aka Owlturd has stopped posting for quite some time now… Give me a date of release! Some sign of life. It doesn’t have to be a comic, just a sentence that you are still alive and well would be enough

      • Looks like we have to wait until senpai comes back. But it has been over 2 months now… i really miss Rando and his humour and i just hope that nothing happened to him that we don’t know of

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. 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

      • So a man walks into a bar. He tells the bartender “I’ve had a rough day, just give me anything to drink but a beer”, so the bartender pours him some vodka. The next day, the same man walks in and says the same thing, so the bartender gives him some whiskey. On the third day, the man walks in and asks the same thing. This time, the bartender asks him “Why don’t you want to have a beer?”. So the man replies “Well, every time I drink 20 beers, I go home and blow chunks”. The bartender says “Dude, 20 of anything would make you blow chunks”. The man then says “Yeah, well, Chunks is my dog”.

      • Wanna know the last thing my grandpa said before he kicked the bucket?
        “I wonder how far I can kick this bucket”

      • Teacher: “If I gave you 2 cats and another 2 cats and another 2, how many would you have?”
        Johnny: “Seven.”
        Teacher: “No, listen carefully… If I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?”
        Johnny: “Seven.”
        Teacher: “Let me put it to you differently. If I gave you two apples, and another two apples and another two, how many would you have?”
        Johnny: “Six.”
        Teacher: “Good. Now if I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?”
        Johnny: “Seven!”
        Teacher: “Johnny, where in the heck do you get seven from?!”
        Johnny: “Because I’ve already got a freaking cat!”

      • When our grandad was 65, we told him to run a mile everyday.

        Now he’s 70, but we have no idea where he is.

    • Would you rather eat a sandwich or lick a homeless mans’ toe? Lick the toe of course because when i am done eating the sandwich i can’t murder it >:D

    • How many dead babies does it take to change a lightbulb? Seems like more than twenty cause my basement is still dark >:D

    • My finest “WW2 French” jokes: How many gears does a French tank have? 3. Reverse. Fast reverse for combat and a really slow forward gear for parades.
      My grandfather actually fought for the Nazis back in the day and he was stationed at the western front in Germany. But every now and then he managed to get some days off and visited his buddies in the east front, walking around with a bag full of rifles. He sold them and told his buddies “Want some French weapons? Never used, just dropped once!”

    • Is this what you want Rando? I will sacrifice my dark humour to you if you come back! It has almost been two months

    • Still nothing from Rando? Alright.
      How many babys do you need to throw at a wall to paint it red?
      Well i don’t know, i just do it for fun >:D

    • A cop pulls a car over on the highway, in it a family: mom, dad, the son and grandma. The father rolls down the window and says to the cop “Oy dipshit, wha’s the problem here?” As the cop raises his eyebrows his wife reacts quickly to control the situation “Don’t take him seriously officer. He’s a real jerk when he gets drunk.”
      The cop stares at the wife in disbelief when the son laughs and says maliciously “Yeah you sure talk big for someone who is tripping on coke.” In exasparation the grandma cries out from behind “I knew we wouldn’t get far in this stolen car!”

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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 !

  18. 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 ^^

  19. 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!


  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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!!

  23. 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!

  24. 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!
