Aedra's moving on. And on. And on. And on.........

Post#1 » 01 Apr 2009, 01:41

Hey guys, as you know I'm pretty into wow. I play a lot. I don't think there is a day where i'm not online. If i'm not online half the time i'm on these forums or i'm browsing theory crafting sites. As you can tell; I'm pretty into it. While this has been well and good for the past 4years, its begining to get detrimental. When i first started playing wow it was just when i had the free time. Log on here, log on there. Very casual and relaxed. Leveling with my friends from school are some of the best wow memories i've had. Then i started raiding. Shit got serious. I feel that it was a turning point in my WoW life. From logging on when i wanted too, it moved onto feeling obliged to log on to raid. 4 nights a week i was signing up to kill the fire lord in the molten core. Why did i do it? Well the answer is simple, i was after the loot. The best rewards only came from being able to raid.
The rewards were only reaped from commitment.
Why i've told this story is to explain why i'm moving on. Through my experience in World of Warcraft I've realised that the real rewards only come from putting in the hard hours. This not only applies in WoW but in many other circumstances; in particular, real life.
I oft wonder why i'm only doing OK in my university course. I now sit here feeling stupid at how obvious the answer is. The fact of the matter is that i'm putting in more time to wow then my studies and thus the rewards of my studies are not coming into fruition.
The answer is simple.
There can only really be room for one.
Life, or Warcraft.
Tonight my friends, i'm choosing life.

To all the fellow WoW players i say sorry. I feel like i'm letting some of you guys down. But in the end, its my life. I gotta live it how i gotta live it.
So again i bid you all a farewell. A goodbye to the community and suprisingly soothing routine of log on, raid, reap rewards. A goodbye to the antics of Southern Cross and the support and nature.
A simple Goodbye.

no dank no
although we give each other shit, i have always respected you as a go to person for everything wow related, i hope you log on from time to time, and wish you all the best in your uni course and RL.
This game can take a serious drain on your social life, studies and career. Its all about finding a balance. If you can find that balance then sure continue raiding. Not tiling jumping in IF as i sometimes do. wasting time where you could use that time to be productive.
At any rate the choice is yours. Thanks for being a part of SC and thanks for your leadership / friendship

same it was great at first login on here and there then it turned into what you discribed login on for the sake of login on, i knew this guy who was on 12 hours a day my first guild's GM, mostly he sat in IF whispering people to get into srs conversations...he quit when he wanted more out of life...its hard to find a balence in life and gaming with WoW and others like it...i myself struggle to not log on..becos of this i leveled 8 toons to lvl 70 6 from lvl 1 to 70 during BC the same thing is happing again im already up to 4 lvl 80's

Aedra its funny your doing this, esp after talking about \kicking people who hadnt been on in a long time and you got to Nutta...he was in the same boat as you...Uni/work/gf or WoW

his life has worked out great Uni finished a srs job, i can only hope for the same for you good luck mate

you may find it hard to stop WoW cold turkey im not joking, play here and there again untill you can stop, moniter your play time dont play during the week or do what ever the fuck you wanna

Wow, sad to see you go Dank.

I think alot of us are in the same boat but not everyone feels the same, ive played wow for a few years now, been and gone and back again, so take time if you need it, i did for a year then came back and it was better than ever.

Uni/Studies etc is more important than a game in the long run, but we all know this. Whatever you choose man, good luck, you will be missed.

Ah guys, thanks for all the kind words it really means a lot to me ya know. I really feel like i made a lot of mates in Southern Cross and i'm hoping that even though i've left the game we can still keep in contact.
People are really what make the game interesting ya know, you guys are really what kept me playing this whole time to be honest. Without the guild i probably would of left for good a long time ago!
Real life, does, in the end, take precedent though.
In the real world, like in wow, you can't just put in a half assed effort, like enchanting your gear with crappy enchants or gemming with green gems. If i did that in real life i'd end up without a degree after putting in all these years at uni.
Leaving is tough though. I feel a commitment to the guild, a commitment to wow. You've all been so good to me and helped me become better at the game and i owe you all alot.
Friends can transcend games, i truly believe that the people you meet and have good relations with in Warcraft can be kept and just because i'm not playing i hope i dont get ostracized from the great SC community.
Other then WoW i'd like to enjoy some other communities i'd like to try new games where i don't feel i have to commit. I want to play games where i can log off like whenever i want.
Other then WoW i'd like to be able to just go out when i get called on a wednesday night. Or be able to look after my cousin on a sunday afternoon because my auntie has work.
Look in the end we are a sum of all our experiences. While wow has been a great experience for me thus far its time to try something new, something that doesn't feel like a drain on my social and future employment prospects.
See-ya guys and thanks for the epics!

Back when I quit WoW (a long time ago), I found that DotA was a great replacement activity -- most games take less than an hour, you can play them with up to 8 friends, and require no commitment beyond that ONE game.

Just a suggestion... was fun playing with you Aedra.
