Probably not a lot of you know me. I post infrequently now-a-days. You'll usually see me post in the Age of Conan/War/The Pub forums. I've also been known to enter into the Off-Topic frey every once in a while.
I started coming to MMORPG.com last summer so that I could discuss WAR with people and get a feel for what it would be like. Now that I look back...I've said a lot of stupid things and done a lot of stupid stuff on this forum, although I've really grown a bit on this forums. I've met a lot of really awesome people and a lot of not-so-awesome people. I'be got in fights and I've been excited to the point of histerical laughter.
I've enjoyed this place. Every night for a long time I've been excited to come here and get news on all the MMORPGs. I love to see the industry grow and watch as games mold and change.
However, I've decided that my time posting on the forums, reading threads, and participating in forum debates has come to an end.
This has been coming for a while now. I'm just rather uninterested in what people have to say anymore...because it's always the same. Everytime a new game is announced...there are always those who will passionately love it and those who will want to burn it at the stake. Trolls and Fanbois as they've been named. They are the same, no matter where you go. WAR, AoC, Darkfall, Aion, Fallen Earth, WoW, LotRO, Vanguard...I've seen a lot of bitching about all these games and I've seen crazy passionate and blinded fanbois of them. I'm sick of watching these stupid flame wars. It's old and not interesting anymore.
Really...the straw that broke the camels back came today in the form of this article:
It's the article written by Dana pretty much calling out Role Players as whiners and intellectually inferior to TROLLS!
yah...I wasn't happy in the least. I figure, now that even the staff are joining this idiotic fray...it's time to end my time here on the forums.
I'll still pay attention to the news and keep an eye on the happenings in the MMORPG industry, but I'm done contributing my thoughts and opinions on this site.
I have a lot of good memories...my excitement for WAR, some conversations I've been a part of, the knowledge gained...but it's time to pack my bags and head out. I just want to thank everyone that contribute to all the game forums with guides and objective material and such. You are the kind of people that lowly people, such as myself , look up to. You have really helped people like me to learn more and helped me in a lot of ways when dealing with games...so I thank you.
I hope that MMORPG.com cleans up its act though. I hope that they don't allow hate-filled articles by mediocre writers anymore. I hope that I can come back here one day and see threads where people are debating the game in depth *WITHOUT INSULTING EACHOTHER* and sharing ideas.
Do I really expect this though?
No...no I don't.
Guys! I'm hopelessly lost in a mountain of mole hills! Them damn moles!
