    OT: The Great Garbadic Giveaway and Retirement Speech (EVERYONE will get something)

    Hey all,

    The day has finally come. I have been playing this game so long I can't remember how many years its been. I've made so many chars I can't recall them all. But the time has come to retire for good. I planned on writing a massive retirement speech and thank you, but I am sure no one wants to read it anyhow. Maybe sometime later.

    I've recommended Fenris as my replacement. His example will keep our forum beginner friendly. Sorry to the others, there were a lot of you I could have picked. My last act as mod will be to ban myself as promised.

    On a side note, I am happy to see Clan Honor active again before I quit. It is good to know legit dueling will outlive me.

    Now, to what most of you are here for...the giveaway.

    I have had SO many people give me items, duel with, etc it is hard to be fair. Because I don't think I can be perfectly fair, I decided a contest would be best. A simple contest, because I have over 40 mules of godly pvp items to dispose of, including over 160 legit fine vitas, more than 75 skills with 30+ life, dozens of the best possible weapons and armor, runes, blah blah blah.

    So...

    Here is the deal. For each ear you bring me, I will give you one item. It doesn't matter whose ear it is or how you got it, but no duplicates. Simply post your acct here and I will contact you and pay you per ear.

    If anyone gets lucky ( :D ) and manages to get one of my own ears (I want a screenshot), I will give you one of my top items, your choice. Some of my better items are worth several hundred runes.

    I want to flood b.net with ears to celebrate the retirement of the last great diablo one dueler! To the hunt my bretheren!! BRING ME TEH EARS!! :D

    GGs all,
    Garbad



    EDIT: I am sorry everyone, but this thread was an April's Fools joke :) See my later post for details.

    Oh, forgot one thing. Post quickly, as I will close this thread in a day or so and only those will get to participate.

    NO PMs, emails, or msging me online please, I am at work.

    EDIT: Btw, I forgot to mention realm. This covers both west, east, and euro sc nonladder. The easties and euros will have to settle for only high runes, as I never really made an acct to use them. I also have minor items in HC west ladder and nonladder (shakos, storms, etc, but no godly stuff).

    Well sad to see an active forumer go. I'm on east ladder and have an ear or 2 for you :) I like your idea of collecting ears.

    err so you are only non ladder?

    My acct is *EndTheory.

    O_O

    Hahaha. Tell ya what. To be fair to the east ladderers and such, I will still give them an item that matches their realm as close as possible (say an east nonladder rune or something) and they can sell it and get something ladder.

    EDIT: And I don't keep runes below UM or any nonuseful item worth less than about a tals armor, so don't worry about getting junk. All the items are useful and/or expensive.

    Sorry to see ya go Garbad, the Druid forum is my favorite by far.
    Im on US EAST non-ladder and my account is *goneil
    I could use a few runes myself, and I have plenty of needy friends. (for some reason I have a lot of newb friends, maybe its because i give so much stuff away myself...)
    Now im gonna go get my WereBear druid and start smaking people around till they give me their ears. Ill probably be online for a little while between 4 and 6 today, if not ill definitely be online Friday night.

    I hope you'll still show up in the forums from time to time.

    cya-

    It will be sad to see ya go... I'm fairly new to the forums, but as i started as a druid the druid forum will always be home, and i must say i know you had to have given advice that helped me at least once. The whole druid forum will miss you.

    If you hold to your word and focus on your real life rather than D2 then I won't see you again. Have a good life Garbad and make as many people as you can incredibly happy. I'm sure you'll succeed at that.

Well good luck in whatever you are gonna do after d2! I guess lots of ppl will miss your advices and stuff, including me. =/

    If so,

    I always knew you sucked ... :D
    I'll miss your polls, though! Have fun, uhm, something. FenrisWulf could be a great mod. I want Europe items, by the way. If you even have any. I won't bother trading for USWest/East items. *Strid

    Post once in a while to let us know that you are ok! Else I WILL e-mail you pictures of my naked butt that will make you shiver O_O

    O_O I'm gonna miss your constant O_Oing all the time... :)

    BYEE!!
