After ALOT of thinking, and soul searching, I have decided to call it quits...not, however in the traditional way, though. I know I made mention earlier last month that I would be holding a contest to give away my account...that ain't gonna happen, I worked too many years, and spent way too much to just give it to some online trader to make money off of. My plan, as usual, will be with no recourse on mine or anyone elses part. I will systematically throw away every single item I have in both my houses, and after that delete my characters one by one...my heart is very heavy. I have lost many things in my REAL LIFE due to this game, and my aparent ADDICTION to it.... Many things I can't ever replace. The final straw is just to ludicrious to even mention, but it was the act that will forever stand as the pivital moment in my 8 year long run with Ultima Online. I have brought into the game some friends, and made a few, but as some may attest to, not many (friends that is). I have, as many of you have already read in the past, many of these farewells, and I really didn't even think it would ever come to this, but it has. I will miss many of the things that set this game apart from reality, the beautiful graphics, the interesting story lines, and the ever-present social interaction, with sometimes juvinile jerks, but I recon, that's just life, as they say. Some really nice people, probably more nice than not. I have made this decision so that I can move on without the crutch of a very frustrating, and most of the time unbeatable game. Healers never where you need them, creatures that loot your ****, and timers on corpses that is just too short for someone who prefers to play solo, and can't afford to insure every thing worn. Well, I guess I just lost the last thing I had saved up junk to get for years and years, just to have it go bye bye...I give up, the game has won, and beat me.....they can have it. I GIVE UP! I been paying $280.00 per year just to be frustrated, and pissed off damn near every time I logged out. I have had it. Ok, now I feel better.
