Adopting a Lactose-free Diet I’ve had a bit of an epiphany today with regards to black, white, and grey areas. My stashes are cluttered with 3 years worth of stuff, some of which has been obtained through assorted methods, such as HF rushing and time-traveling. While this is exceptionally difficult, I am backing up and archiving all of my current wealth and characters and beginning anew, with a slightly purer outlook. I don’t believe I have broken any forum rules in the past, but I am not getting the “warm fuzzy” feeling about my present state, and it’s affecting my motivation to play. I don’t think obsessing over shaving a second off of my Pindle times is necessarily healthy, and I see myself quitting due to burnout in the near future if I continue this course. Very rarely does anything dropping excite me anymore, which I am attributing to the fact that I have taken advantage of too many workarounds that are simply not necessary to be effective and enjoy the game as it was meant to be played in its current state. As a result of this, I will be dropping out of the MFO (which is unfortunate, as I was really looking forward to it) since I won’t be able to procure the items base needed to be competitive in time. I realize none of this is especially newsworthy, but I’m posting it in an effort to keep myself from succumbing to temptation and rescinding on my promise. I don’t quite have the heart to delete my backups yet, but once I’ve run NM Meph enough to get a few things, I suspect I will. The loss of my eBotD hurts the most, so that will be my long-term goal, to make another (in a 1.13 base this time). The greatest and most inspiring thing about this community is how its members are able to police themselves and hold to such high ethical standards. Thank you all for being fantastic.
