Long overdue (in General)

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- June 15 2010 1:59 PM EDT

I would like to start off by thanking a few people. First off, thank you Novice, Ranger, Kevlar, DoS, Natasha, Tal, Marlfox, Zenai, Sut, Verifex, My former clan, "Band of Wookies" (which Kevlar and I started together, we accomplished a lot more than I think anyone thought we ever would, and more importantly playing with you guys was the most fun I'd ever had with CB), all the chat junkies that make 4am bearable (Gun has to have the honorable mention here), Nightstrike, Shade, Slayer, dudemus, and that one oddbird guy =). I'm sure I could just keep adding names to the list, but that's off the top of my head, (in no real order) and I could reminisce for days.

When I joined this game, I had minor ambitions like all new players. Beat the best. At the time, Novice//Ranger were "the guys to beat".
When you read their forum posts, you knew that they were serious business as far as CB was concerned and generally speaking knew what they were talking about. They were fierce, they were the lions of CB. So, my goal was to beat them.

Simple enough.

It's been some time and effort, but I can say I've accomplished what I've set out to do, (awhile ago actually) and it's time for me to take a step back and focus on more important things like school and life.

It's just time for things to change. I've enjoyed the time that I spent here, and I am thankful for the distraction CB has offered over the years, but I have things to do and accomplish.

I am not just selling out and gone forever or anything like that. I don't even know if I'm "selling out". I was planning on running a NCB and have been amassing items for that endeavor. After carefully reviewing my situation, I've decided that I will not have the time to commit to a 6 month run, and that I need to focus on more important things. Distractions are good, but when the distraction becomes the focus, what happens to ambition?

The only thing that is for sure, is that I am way to busy with real life to spend my time worrying about CB, so I'm taking the worry out of the equation. If I have an abundance of free time, I'll be here, and if I don't, I won't.


So this is not a REAL good-bye, just a long over-due thank you, and an explanation of why I'm not geared up and grinding it out.

Nicely put. Hopefully we'll see that NCB soon enough.

Enjoy your break, you'll be back ;) CB always drags us back.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 15 2010 5:52 PM EDT

Go take your Long overdue break and be sure to come back and grind a bit more :-D Thanks a ton for everything that you have done and I am sure some day in the future will do.
