Note: Please do let it stay in Gen Dis for some time - there have been less relevant topics there anyhow. I'll also integrate the passing of MMO ages in here. Thanks!
Oh how the time flies. One could almost say "Tempus fugit". And what has transpired within these seven years. I remember joining in to discuss SWTOR, WAR and such games. I also remember that it was the time when the GW 2 hype and discussions were at its finest and Cataclysm was fairly new and quite polarizing. How much the game landscape changed in the mean time: from MMOs to MOBAs to Survival games to single player games(lol!). So much for "SINGLE PLAYER GAMES ARE DEAD!" ; though I reckon that SPs should adopt the hybrid model(SP with MP functions as in back when), but that is neither here nor there. We went from "WoW killer" to "WoW copy" to "MMO ignore". SWTOR crashed and burned, but I also quite enjoyed some of its stories(Smuggler, Trooper). ES:O and FF XIV crashed, burned and rose like phoenixes from the ashes. And I'm really glad for this. WoW began to be the background thing as opposed to THE THING.
On a more personal level, a lot has happened. I finished the school and tried two colleges. No can do, I'm not really interested in regimented anything. I had few jobs, one very good where there was a good food, good company, but not that much to do(would still return to it in a heartbeat). My country even became a full member of EU and now my country almost toppled the world in Soccer. But nah, the gendarmes were...we have a HUGE problem with Didier The Champ(
) it seems. He stopped us two times now. My father also passed away, that was...shit happens. The life's like a (co)sine, it vacillates from the max to min and back again. It causes some econ struggle, but nothing that can't be fixed. Best not to dwell on bad things. Learn and move on I say. To quote Seven "We will adapt".
And I still haven't had a female company in all this time, believe it or not!
Yet here I am. Writing a, basically, memorandum on my 5000 posts and 7 years of life where I haven't done anything of real notice. I ate nicely, played good games, watched good movies(presumably) and … I could get detailed and even calculate with a high accuracy the number of happy endings. But let's not get there.
Thank you all for reading this upside down post and being here. You rock!
