    Our last German

Posted 27 October 2013 - 14:55

Hi again!

This may come as a surprise to most of you (much to the satisfaction of my sensationalist ego), but let's get to the point:
I'm leaving LDT. (or rather I have left; it happened gradually, really...)

 [/HR]
The sad thing is, I'm not even in the mood right now to write a nostalgic essay about my history in this community and all the highs and lows and people and stuff and everything. So instead, here's a list of people I'd like to honorably mention and who have my gratitude:

[SPOILER=In Order Of Random]Psycix Bob Gio Frag Dan Jack Ed Hoba Blackheart Max TwoMike Merry Metadone Benk Marmite Keith Valikai Mayhem Revenge Dede Krona Hat Bloodknife Dthen Hope James Kazaki Shaunus Loadite Loadingue Biggles Sourgoat Trif Benz Wacky Wazza Wredan Coco Cyrill JJ Kalle Smelly Trigg Tabole Melon Cowboy Woot Lynx $K Gimse Kawaii Martin Pandaboy Perdo Domnom Tdeano Commander Eclipse Draekon ManyPopes Squeezy Badgers Slendy[/SPOILER]

Why am I leaving?

  • I've been drifting away slowly to a point where I thought a conclusion of this particular chapter was in order. I haven't been playing garry's mod at all for the longest time now and haven't gotten around to playing games that often in the first place; if it happens, it usually ends up being TF2 (with a nicely low brain / thrill ratio). It's like that with every game I play; it usually lasts for a couple of years and then I move on. I might come back to it a couple of times, but you can notice a major difference in involvement and time spent.
  • Worse than that, I've lost interest in the community as a whole for the most part. Don't get me wrong, I still appreciate it as much as back in the day; however when I haven't been on for weeks and then I come back and don't even bother logging on, that's usually a bad sign. Not to even mention teamspeak...
  • One reason might be that LDT, like every other community, is subject to the inevitable structural shift, which, no matter how positive or negative, works for some members and not for others. Since I joined many things have changed, people have come and left. I tried to make a difference where I could. And I do appreciate the way this is possible; this kind of constructive discourse isn't often seen on the internet. However, I still feel that for me something intangible has worn off along the way and I can't tell what it is.
  • I'm busy. I'm working on mod development, studying, working a contract job and constantly moving between two places. I'm still pretty comfortable and I certainly won't complain; it just requires me to perform a slight priority reorganization. And sorry, online gaming and community participation has its place somewhere on the "expendable" list.

Will I come back?

Can't promise anything, but I won't be a total stranger, I guess. When something interesting turns up, I'll be there. Who knows; I'm still on Steam and if you're on my friends list, not much is going to change in that regard. Feel free.

What now?

It's been fun with y'all! I don't regret having joined and sincerely hope that perhaps my presence here has in some way served for the good of the community. I'm sorry for the disappointment I may be causing, but I'd really like to make a clean cut here instead of uselessly dangling around with uncertainty and false hopes. Parting ways is the right thing to do at this point; of this I am fairly certain. Let's see what the future holds.

Thank you for your time and good bye!

This makes me very sad but it's a choice you've had to make and I respect that.

Good luck with everything (Wait a second, I'll see you over at Tripmine!)

Much love Uphys :D

Good luck to you in the future, and thanks for actually making a diffrence.
Without you, loads of things were not possible. For example: The revival of TTT

Thanks, and again: Good luck!

I remember first meeting you on TTT, you really made me want to be a part of LDT, you're a funny, awesome guy, and I really hope you do great in whatever you wish to pursue.

It's been a pleasure knowing you, and probably RDMing you.
See ya around!
