I take my leave
Yup, like Watafak said, my times are over. I'm leaving. It had to happen someday. I'm already tired trying to get admins to give some care to the game with any official statement or negation instead of silence. And the game did have many problems and loopholes that required attention. I could do what those whom I tried to report do (not only them!), you can trust me I know how to do shady things better than they do but I won't, I don't have it in me. I also don't want to listen to major gold users boasting how great their abilities are - ok I get it, you pay a lot for playing game, you're awesome -but at least do something good for others sometimes, which I haven't seen or heard of lately, guess there is still chance to improve -and sorry if any of you feels that he was not like that, talking about group of people will never be correct to all of it's members.
Like many say now, I just complain too much, so I won't bother you anymore, I'll leave and not complain anymore
Still I'd like to thank some of you,
Blaaster, you inspired me to grow stronger, to always look for a peaceful resolution and negitiation when it's possible. Guess I didnt do so always but I tried, sometimes successfully.
hummingwolf, you were my sense of morality at times when I had problems to decide, when I was at loss (yeah, even i sometimes dont know the right way), you kept me going on longer. Don't worry about the book, I'll keep you updated on next chapters.
ron, you knew how to entertain people in here and helped whenever you could, and i'll remember your advice, i'll say hello.
GoRage, you may be surprised I write to you but we had a disagreement and i'm glad you tried to understand and make things better, thank you.
MaChao,nOelf, you helped me a lot and were always straight to the point in your beliefs.
MrJackal, Slaine - without your help I would not grow strong, glad to have been part of the group. And Jack, i still believe you are the best pr0 in this game. Slaine, don't forget to tell me about the thing, just as our agreement was, when i was to leave.
Bia - thanks that you understood my point, it's sad that things turned the way that you felt you had to leave, i'd always thought that there could have been other way to solve this.
jamboree - it's been fun fight wars togather, even the last one.
And to all heroes members - thanks to everyone for playing the game fair, and for the integrity we've had, others may not agree but im sure we were the most closely connected guild in here. I'm proud of all of you.
People Are People. Games Are Games
For whatever it is worth, I felt compelled to reply to Naria's Post.
When I was growing up, we played lots of cards and board games. As a child it was very fun. When I grew older, I found out that my parents had used "gaming" as a means for several things: Family Interaction, Sociability and Teaching us about Life Skills.
My mother would always say, "People are People, and Games are Games." I didn't understand what that meant when I was young, but as I grew older it became clear to me what she was trying to teach us. Games will always be what they are, plain and simple. It is the people playing the game that adds or distracts from its fun and playability.
Some play for enjoyment. Some play for the challenge. Others are driven by the desire to just win. We've all played games. And, we have all played games with different sorts of people with different desires. Do you remember ever playing with someone that was so driven to win, that it took away from the fun of the game? Took away from the social aspect of the game? Or how about the person that was willing to "stack the deck" or look at other's cards just so they could win...
This game is no different than any other. It is the collective of people that will make it what it is.
Some are here to play for enjoyment. Others are driven for the sake of winning. And yet others, will always be willing to cheat for their own desires.
I believe in the ideals that Naria stood for. And I abhor the desires of those who would take away from the fun and community that this game offers.
For those of you that are here for fun and fellowship, I applaud you. For those of you that are indifferent, continue on as you have.
