Sooo, the cats out of the bag, and as many know i'm quitting. Not that most of you care =), some may even be cheering! I haven't looked at uohall in a while, and so before I forget I wanted to pop in and say some things. Many of you knew me as many different names, so i'll just throw out the main ones: Cetric Xavier Kane Mel Gibson War Machine Clark Griswold Berzerker Xuv'Yerkan/Xuv the Brigand For those of you that i've come to enjoy playing this game with, I wanted to say thanks for the good times. From starting this game on dial up and playing with some of my rl friends, to the massive pvp battles in the days of old, its been a fun ride. Those days are long gone, and while building suits has kept me content and obsessed, and the misc. pvp in between has been fun at times, it is not what it used to be. The game has taken some strange directions, and I have very much lost interest. It is strange to think that i'e played this game on and off for 14 years. The last publish I had hoped would bring back some interest, and while it did.. for a week, it wasn't long lasting. I've taken some extended breaks in the past, and the breaks became more often as of late. It also doesn't help that my epic gaming pc and awesome internet conenction is horrendously slow to UO since the amazon web hosting of UO occured, and no one has bothered to fix such an issue. To those of you i've remained in touch with over the years, i'll continue to pop into vent and icq from time to time to say hi and make fun of you ! We've had some good times and bad, but overall it was fun and for the most part, worth the time and money. If anyone ever needs to get a hold of me, feel free to get my personal email from me, some of you have other ways to get a hold of me. For anyone else, pm me on stratics and i'll get an email alert. Try not to harass Kyronis too much in my place stratics community! Special shout outs to: EDA Garret Homer Puni Fubar Dorinda Lynk Mike (you'll always just be bob to me) Itari/Ghost Bodi Jabber Crack Fiend/Zynia - I'll be a moonglow banksitter for life. Still have the attire! and many others, the list would be too long.. The game wouldn't of been the same without you. I'll let you know if another game catches my eye and be sure to track you down and drag you into it with me. Let me know if you find something as well. To the rest of you, including the haters! its been fun and i'll miss you too, well... somewhat..lol. I've made many friends through this game, and have had fun and interested conversations with complete strangers. I've made enemies and trash talked game masters. I even had the fortunate chance to curse out lord british himself during a feast at his castle (and end up in a uo jail with my rl best friend, squealched for a week), but it was all in good fun. I even got to attempt to PK Mesanna and Draconi, though they just thought taking 500hp of damage and then 1 hit flamestirking me was more fun =P and before it is asked, no you can't have my stuff. I've sold most of my items off already on my luna vendor, the rest is in auctions on the Trade Forum here. I've given quite a bit away to some players on atlantic and great lakes that don't powergame, and don't end up with the nicest stuff. I envy your gameplay. I've given out my suits and some of my higher end and more precious items, unfortunately some of those i'd of prefered to give them to have not been on to receive them =(. Whatever i have left after this weekend will be given away to anyone who crosses my path, unfortunately most of my stuff is on Atlantic, but Great Lakes (my original shard) will get some love as well. Thanks, its been fun.. i didn't expect this quick post to turn into an essay..
