Great post Mech.
I had the pleasure of running with you a few times over the years, but not since MotU dropped. The runs were always a success, and great fun as well. Unfortunately, this is not the game it once was, and I can see why you are ready to move on.
If you bother reading this thread, don't sweat the trolls. Some of them are so emotionally and psychologically dependent upon this game that the mere mention of someone moving on is more than they can handle. If nothing else, the classless ones who talk about being classy will at least provide a parting laugh as you walk out the door.
Best of luck to you!
I will miss you on the forums if you stop posting.
Roads wind and twist. Perhaps one day the road brings you back here or we will meet in another place; until that day, I wish you all the best. :)
*insert a darth vader nooo*
Best of luck to you Mech, you wonderful dinosaur.
Awesome post Mech, you verbal beast. Good luck with those chinese student chicks and with career aswell. Maybe you'll come back some day, after you get divorced and fired x) Good times we had, i may follow your path some day, just not quite yet.. need.. grind.. moar..
Mech (or Modron as I knew you),
I remember you providing me advice on HP and playstyle when I was a first life wizard,
I remember looking up to you as something that I could aspire to in game,
I remember you being in the first PUG I joined (Red Fens chain, running all flagging quests so a newbie (Me) could also run the finale)
I appreciated the help, your demeanor and knowledge made you someone the server will miss. I wish you all the best in your travels.
If it leads to something better for you, I'll gladly take the blame, but knowing DDO I'll be blamed for it anyway xD
GL and you have my best of wishes Mech, I'll miss getting random tells about how everything is my fault.
It's been a pleasure running with you, Mech. I wish you the best in all you do.
Another late nighter gone .... will miss running with you Mech ... All the best in real life.
I had this really long, really witty post in mind and then I realized, "LOL I'm not even playing anymore!" I didn't quit. I'm just not playing and for many of the same reasons you (the OP) mentioned... except the real life thing. I'm retired. I don't need a real life. I keep checking in by reading Dev Tracker and scanning over posts looking for a reason to log in and play. The problem is, every time I check in I keep finding the opposite. However I digress.
Good luck and safe travels,
We wish you the best in your future endeavors.
