Time to move on It's time for me to make my "I'm quitting" post. Earlier today I got a computer virus which prompted me to reformat my computer. I backuped my ATMA stashes, but too late did I realize I hadn't saved my actual characters, where I keep the majority of my good gear. Rather than scrambling around old email backups and ATMA backups etc to see what I can salvage, I realize this is the time to put this game behind me. I've felt that it's time for a few weeks now, during which I've actually barely played at all, which is very uncommon for me under normal circumstances. I've wasted a lot of time on this game, time I've often wished I spent on better things. For instance, I've been a proffessional poker player for over 6 years, since I was 17, but in the last ~2 years I've barely played poker at all due to having "better" things to do while on the computer, including playing Diablo. Looking back, I very much regret how I've fallen behind in my "career choice" for the opportunity to better optimize my Travincal runners, so to speak. I'm pretty sure I'll still hang around in some capacity, I enjoy the threads and the community around here too much to leave entirely. I haven't even completely ruled out a bit of occasional tournament playing, or something like that. There won't be a goodbye giveaway this time though, sorry, you guys have enough wealth as it is The one exception to that is that I'll try to track down an email backup of the [email protected] eth Sacred Targe Exile frozzen gave away to me for PvPing. I'll send it back if I can find it. Having played for so long as I have, I definitely can't help but feel a bit of nostalgia when thinking of the items I've now deleted. In the last few years, I've grown very attached to my diablo items, feeling a sense of pride over the stuff I've amassed. Definitely a bittersweet goodbye. Thanks to everyone for having been part of my Diablo experience over the last 3+ years. Finally, let me give you some parting advice; get into PvP! Thanks for reading, as always.
