    english is not my native language, so sorry for my bad english!

    Ho well, after about 12 or more..years, its time to quit.
    I dont wanna say or talk about why i'm quitting, the reasons are many!

    I just wanna say thanks to all peoples i meet in this fantastic game
    (that i loved for years).
    Thanks to all here on stratics
    Thanks to all the dev teams.

    (damn english)

    I have 2 account, 1 its about 13 years old, another one is
    about 10 or more. I have to check...
    i have to install the game because i moved to a new computer,
    or i have to check online.

    I have many chars all on Atlantic shard.
    DragonSigh, Blackwalker, Blackfish, Panettone, Pandoro, Merlino,
    and many others that i dont remember the name...lol

    Currently i'm not playing (but paying for it)
    for about 5 (or more) months.


    I collected a lot of things all over these years and
    have 2 big house (not in luna :) )

    If i have to make a list of all i have i need 2 weeks!

    Dunno if i'll drop all in the trash or ,if someone is interested,
    sell all i have, accounts too.


    ho well, i'd like to say many things, but its better to close
    here and say just a little and nice "bye all"!

    bye from Rome, Ciao, Asta la vista, etc.. :)

    If you want some advice, don't sell your accounts. Stuff everything that you can that has value into your bank accounts, and on your characters. You may not think so now, but if you are like most of us you will want to come back at some point, and you will regret selling your accounts.

    Yeah, I was going to suggest this too. Put the items you might want to keep in your bank box and then close your accounts. You can always return for visits when they do the Return to Britannia promotion and if you ever get the urge to come back, you'll be able to jump right in as you were before.

    A "Leaving UO" post without needless, pointless pancakes or whining, how refreshing!

    :thumbup1:

    Good luck, Mary. I hope you decide to come back some day. UO needs more people like you.

    Good luck to you Mary!
     
  11. I was going to type this exactly before scrolling down and seeing 2 posts with the same advice. If you are able to at all, put your valuables away in the bank and give the rest away to your friends. I left UO for quite some time, and returned just to check things out. I actually didn't expect to find my stuff still available in the bank (they used to say accounts would be deleted in 3 months or something), but having gear & trained characters was a big factor in staying. I was sure glad I had it (wish I would have planned ahead).

    Good luck on what ever you do kiddo. Like the others have said, Don't Sell, just bank all your good stuff & the rest give to your many many friends.
    As my day would say, Arrivederci & may we meet someday:smooch.

    Yeap, UO accounts are so worthless in real money nowdays that it's not worth it. Just bank the best stuff and give rest away, then if you want to come back some day in the future you have your characters left. This game will prolly run many years still (atleast I hope so), you never know if you wanna come back in couple years.

    Your English is just fine ...

    Splup has it right ... get as much stuff into bankboxes and on your characters as you can that might be good usage on a return. Take it from one who did NOT do that and simply scrapped everything ... my return was very painful!

    Be safe in your journeys ...

    I have to agree... oh so many return and return again... and even if you think you never will now... you never know what life will toss your way... so plan for another day a return to this beloved realm.

    As the others said best to hold accounts. Load the bankbox / backpack / beetle. And what doesn't fit, have some fun and yell out on the chat your going to pelt ratmen from the sky with your stuff. After about an hour heads up see if you can fill the Luna bank trash chest.

    Thanks for giving us a classy goodbye... I already like you, as opposed to those who quit and rant and rave about how UO changed and it sucks now.

    It is sad to see vets leave, but a classy exit like this deserves response. If you are leaving for another game, I hope you find the home you did in UO. If its real life, I definitely wish you a most wonderful life. Peace.

    How come when I posted that I was selling my accounts and possessions I was nearly given an infraction because I didn't specify that I was selling it for gold? I was forced to make that change or the post would be removed.

    If she is getting rid of everything and quitting entirely I don't imagine she would be wanting UO gold, right?
     
  25. PEACE! Good luck in the real world :)

    First thing is Mary you will be missed and the next part is not aimed at you.

    You are right. No gold is stated in her post. Shame on UOStratics. My post was deleted and a mark was put on my account for this.

    Quit using logic.

    What about the posts that are buying accounts/houses/items that never state for UO gold but say they are PayPal Cert. Guess we shouldn't use logic there also.

    Ha, that's pretty quick. I get the itch every couple of years and do a month of siteseeing. Honestly, the game's changed so much it's not that much fun to play when I return. I can get over 100 music now? MADNESS. ;) I usually provoke over at the graveyards near Britain for a while, hit the sewers, and get waxed in the the lost lands before giving up again.

    It really is hard to start back up after so long away -- I haven't played back to back months in probably 6-8 years, iirc. Still, I'm glad I've got my old gear when I make it back. And that death music and b&w fade out still gives me chills. I've apparently learned to react to that at the subconscious level now.
