Have I lost interest? (in General)


AdminShade September 16 2008 12:44 PM EDT

Last few weeks I've hardly played CB...

Have I lost interest in the game or do I need a break from it?
I'm really not sure, perhaps I've been playing for too long? (about 5 year now?)
Or perhaps I've not been playing enough, or can't play enough, to keep me satisfied and competitive?

Hmmm what to do :\

I'mma track you down and beat you with a carp if you quit on us.

You need to take a break from fighting and join us in chat like I'm doing. ;p

If your life is too busy for CB that's possibly a good thing no? You've been here a good long while Shadeyman. Maybe you need a break!

Find yourself a goal in the game Shade. ;)

Like getting the largest 'x'.

Or take a break from fighting. Sometimes we all need a change of scenery/pace.

AdminShade September 16 2008 12:51 PM EDT

Well Hakai, I haven't been in chat for a long long time. I've only joined on a few occasions when I didn't have anything to do.

Lately I also haven't had my MSN logged in and I even haven't played Guild Wars in about 2 weeks either!! :o

Perhaps I do need a change in what I'm doing but not sure why or to what...

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] September 16 2008 12:57 PM EDT

My threat still stands... ;p


Anyway, perhaps you just need to turn off your computer for a couple months and walk away?

That's what I did. And it seemed to work out really nicely for me.

shade that is called afstuderen :P

Henk: I've already graduated more than a year ago and now have a 40 hour work job :D

so nope, it's not that...

Maybe thats it maybe your growing up. And have bigger responsibilities in your life to worry about. than a silly online game.

j'bob September 16 2008 1:20 PM EDT

You'll more than likely find that as you "grow up" silly online games have even more of an appeal than before... perhaps the need to escape what the world insists is important!
But it does seem as if you just need a break. Go ahead, take one, it's ok. ;)

Unimportant Part:
Well, I left about 6 months into cb2 (stopped playing/forgot about it all together) and came back about 7 months ago (long break =P) and found once you get into starting a ncb (preferably with the overpowered strat du jour) it can be interesting again(although I mostly just forged on the original cb so making a char is something different to me).
The Point:
Maybe just take a short break and forge for yourself/stockpile ba for a new character and figure out what might seem like something different you would enjoy.

AdminShade September 16 2008 1:24 PM EDT

j'bob, indeed that might be part of the problem...

nowadays there are so many fun games that I just can't play them all... perhaps CB has to suffer from it. :x

Wasp [Demon Forging] September 16 2008 1:28 PM EDT

Join the club shade. I don't really care for this game much. When I've paid my debt I'll probably leave this arid, monotonous game : /

Cube September 16 2008 1:35 PM EDT

^If you only forge it's going to be monotonous, sorry.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] September 16 2008 1:39 PM EDT

Go, man. Go do something else. But leave the game in your bookmarks, game's gonna be there if you get the blues ;)

You can't force yourself to play if you don't want to, It makes no sense.

AdminShade September 16 2008 1:48 PM EDT

It's not that the game has really gone boring or anything. IMO it's still fun to think about such things and all.
It's not that I don't want to play, just some things are more important or more fun for me now...

I will keep on playing it but most likely close down cbstuff.nl unless someone really wants to keep it. (not because of the costs but because of the upkeeping of it)
All the info I planned on putting there already is in the wiki, just in a different way than possible for a normal website...

IndependenZ September 16 2008 1:58 PM EDT

Shade, you have not lost interest. You just need to start fiddling with a UC team :D

Nah, I'm kidding. Don't force yourself to keep playing; it's nice to let your mind goof off :P

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] September 16 2008 2:05 PM EDT

Well Shade I can do the upkeep on the site and do some updating... i am more than willing to take on that challenge...
