Post by Star on Tue Aug 07, 2012 4:37 pm

Star is out.

Both short term and long.

I am leaving for Miami in an hour or so, on business for the next two weeks. With that in mind, I believe the time has come for me to stop raiding, and for that matter playing WoW altogether.

For the past few weeks, while I have played my character to the best of my ability, truthfully I've only been logging in to talk with our raid group, and listen to my extended family here. To hear the familiar voices that make me smile and laugh and make my day better with the personalities that are so unique to each one of you. I don't have to name you individually, because I really feel like we have a fabric atmosphere in the guild, tightly knit as any guild can be. I can honestly say, I think its fair to say that this has been the most treasured part of my gaming history, being a part of this guild and knowing each of you as best as I can from a headset and microphone.

However, the intrinsic reward I receive from playing this game has diminished. It just isn't the same as before. In fact, its become boring and redundant, and just really...well...not fun.

Personally, I am satisfied to have reached where I am in game, as in the beginning, I challenged myself to be the best hunter I could be. Now, as I look at the group of us and where we are, I can say that I have done that, suffice missing but a few pieces of gear. With your help I have reached Heroics, and have actually seen that skull on the little banner by the map which no guild I was ever in before could accomplish. And knowing that less than 6% of people ever subscribed to this game have actually killed a boss in a Heroic instance, lets me know that I have been successful, and we have been successful together. Now, whether I get 8/8 or not it doesn't matter, as I am okay with the fact that I achieved elite status (as you all are), as a consolation.

Additionally, there are other things in my life that need managing, and at this time I could really use my those two small raid nights back. I'd like to exchange that three to four hours on those two nights to finishing design work, creating new things, spending time with friends, or doing special things during the weeknights with loved ones. Bottom line is, that while all of you are always on my mind, its simply that WoW is not as valuable to me as other things in my life that currently need as much attention. Even with my access to the PTR, I cannot find anything to really be excited about to hang on for the next patch, either. My opinion, really.

If you'll permit, please keep my character in the guild. I am not one to quit guilds and issue a near-soliloquy such as this, but since I value you all, I figured you could leave me on the roster as a valued person as well, whenever my eventual return becomes imminent. My desire is hiatus, not to /gquit.

As we all do, since vanilla, we tend to move away from wow and then return eventually. I am no stranger to this, and its when I am not engaged I begin to drift away. That time is now. However, if I return during MOP, or anytime for that matter, I don't expect an automatic return to raid status or any status for that matter. I'll simply rebuild again, come back strong, get top notch gear, and try to play to the best of my ability. So, I'd like to have that avenue if available.

Last thing, I am not playing another game, joining another guild, any of that nonsense. I simply need to focus on other priorities, because this game, sadly is not one any longer. As much as I don't want to let anyone down, you can find a hunter on any corner, really...but for the most part...one cannot find friends, even virtual ones like yourselves. While you can replace me, I can't replace you. Thus, my message.

You folks will always be my friends. I hope to talk with you soon.

Love you all.

Star

PS. I understand the unwritten rules of wow, and you are now obligated to talk about me like a dog in raid, like we do everyone before us that left the raid team. Smile I'll consider it a farewell for now. Please, feel free. S'ok, I can take it.

Star,
We will all miss you and your energy. I also will miss your long conversations in vent. As a person who believes in God you are in my prayers (as well as everyone in this raid team) and I hope you have a blessed life. I will miss you and hope to talk to you soon and see you in wow sometime in mists. Now I need a Toco Bell and a soda. Keep in touch.

I will also miss you Star.

I think I told you this before...but when you first joined up I said to Monj "This guy is a douche, I don't like him"
A month later...I said "I love Star"

lol

We will miss you. I hope you return. Your toon will always stay in the guild as long as you want it to.

/love/hugs

Oh man. You better come back at some point bro. Or at least post on here every now and again. Like you said, we are all an extended family here and you aren't going to become that cousin that no one talks to anymore.

I hope that everything you are doing in your life goes good. Will miss you a ton bro.
