    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..

    I'm very sorry to see you go, Cetric. :( Kind of figured something was up with you when you just went so quiet here. Didn't really know you in-game, although I'm sure I probably saw you on GL a number of times and just didn't realize it. However, I've always enjoyed reading your posts here and hope you'll pop in occasionally just to say hello. You will be missed. Take care and the best of luck to you in the future!

    always Sad to see a vet of so many years call it a day. I hope enough of us stay and keep the game alive and you may change your mind in a few years time and get the UO bug again.

    Sorry to see you go bud :(

    Didn't know you were Clark G though. *epic face palm*

    One afternoon some months back I musta killed you 4 times in 15 minutes on Preacher :)

    I will say that you did keep coming back though. You were much tougher on War Machine.

    Hope you find your way back though one day. Good luck

    That wouldn't surprise me, when i first threw him together as a necro nox alchy mage, i only had 40ish dci, and was heavily ..HEAVILY... susceptible to dexers/throwers lol. ohhh, the things you do to be overpowered in one area, but under in the other lol. I'm sure happy no one really noticed that war machine ran with like 54 poisoning resist when he was a tamer/dexer and everyone played necros

    But have a good one! its been fun =)

    Thanks, i'll definitely miss you from the forums. These forums and this game wouldn't run well without you to be honest. I dunno why they don't just pay you, you do more testing for publishes and helping players than the dev team does lol.

    Indeed. I do that every time I quit this game. :p

    Always sad to see someone go. Although I myself am out the door too. Just don't have the time for a game I don't play much anymore.

    I liked you before the trivia as I stated in chat,you did a good thing, please don't let your legacy be left on a sour note by a few who don't appreciate your kindness,you could have left nothing at all and gone quietly into the night,but you did it with a gracious bow and gave back to us what I'd like to think you received in your time with the game,community. And PS guy man dude thanks you for the slither fund!!!

    Contributions? Well that's amusing?
    Does that include trying to see how many players one could pack into a guild or despise?
    Not saying your a zergling but you do come from an original zerg right?
    BTW didn't Madonna leave you all his stuff too? Now you add to this stuff and pass it on too?
    Is this some new UO episode of national treasure?
    The only question everyone has is where is that butcher apron? Weren't you supposed to have it?
    Oh and I really lols that you would leave after wasting so much time with idiots.

    You never tried to play with talented players or even lead, instead you played behind a whole bunch of people that frankly you laugh at.

    I can say on a serious note, you wasted your time because your friends were too stupid too see potential (lucky you)
    Could of been more, hell a lot more, but instead this is what it is.

    Since I have killed you so much and yes its been a lot I will give you some free advice for the next game.
    Make better friends and not the ones who think they need 4 other people to kill 1 person. :)

    You are right in some cases, wrong in others. Dunno who you are so its sort of a *shrug*

    You sound angry though, you must be filed under the *Haters* folder.

    Have a good one though, its been fun whoever you are!


    As for the "idiots" i've played with. i've been in vent with some of the best pvpers in UO at one time or another. Most of them were just cocky douchebags, some were cool. My play time has an arc to it that many don't realize and i dont care to mention. Yes i played in a zerg guild for many years until it died, and if i was to break up uo timelines into chunks of fun, that time was probably the second most fun period in uo for me. the battles were huge and i don't regret a thing. I met some really cool people in that time. I hope you can say the same.

    Farewell and good luck.
    I'm sorry to see you leave. One of the few pvp players who could state his case without mangling the Stratics RoC - most of the time anyway :)
    Your well thought out and constructive feedback will be missed I'm sure.

    You don't remain so obviously bitter and angry at one specific person unless that person spent a lot of time owning you. You are a joke budman

    I don't really know you but I've seen you on here a lot and a few times in game on Great Lakes I believe. Would be sweet if I ended up getting some of your stuff if I pop on at the right time but, like you I haven't had much interest in this game lately and it really should go to someone who deserves it more anyway.

    Best wishes though man. What do you do with all your free time now that UO isn't taking it up?

    As someone who knows what their doing and recognizing you as someone as well you'll be missed. Definitely one of the few ppl who voiced on here who actually had something intelligent to contribute.

    I do believe I ran into you on fights here and there on Ches, back in the day? But mostly I know you, now, through forum posts, and you always came across to me as someone invested in the game, number crunching, and someone who was fairly passionate. So that makes me sad to see you are leaving, especially since I'm the same 14-year boat.

    Cetric,

    I am sadden by your departure. I hope you keep your ICQ active so we can spend many more hours at night laughing about people like Lynk. Almost all of my friends have left this game. This makes me sad. T. T

    Bye bye,

    Later Cetric. I keep hoping the dev team gets a clue and improves the game. Good thing keeping my accounts open is not a financial hardship for me but I do truely feel like it is money wasted. If I didn't have billions in items I'd be right with you.

    Cetric,

    I'm deeply saddened to see you go. Like yourself, I haven't been to UHall in a while either. Mostly just Homes and Castles's, cuz you know I'm a trammy like that..

    Moonglow will never be the same without you. Now when I pass by I will just have to envision you over on the fence with the others who no longer play. [Lady Sabrina, Lady Bagheera, Gary Coleman, Aquabat Bob, ViPeR, Warfang, SatansLance, Sien, Dragon Princess, SatansMiner, and all the others who've hopped on the fence.]

    Now who do I have to reminisce with?!

    I hope you really do come back, you have made a great friend over the years and I can honestly say Great Lakes wouldn't have been the same without you. Good luck in all your future adventures, wherever and whatever they may be.

    [​IMG]

    Good luck,
    a Crack Fiend / Lady Zynia

    Sorry to see you go man. I've learned a lot from some of posts you have made over the years, you are one of the people that helps others, shares info, pov's and I thank you for that! If you don't mind me asking, what are you going to be playing next?

    i'm not sure yet, i've fallen out of favor with video games for the most part. i get stuck for a month on the flavor of the month console games when they come out. who knows, i was hoping elder scrolls online would be promising but that is fading from what i've seen. I have a lot of good things going for me irl right now that will keep me fairly busy for a bit, but i'm sure i will get the urge to play at some point, as for what i'm not sure. i purposely gave away or sold everything with the intention that the idea of coming back to UO would be an adventure, starting from absolute scratch, if i ever was so inclined.

    How did you finally let go? I am just wasting money every month but it's so hard to let go of something that has meant so much to me. All my houses are filled with memories. I want to close my accounts but the thought makes me cry. :(
