Title: This is a sad day indeed...I'm sorry
starwolf_ftw - January 23, 2009 05:47 AM (GMT)
Hello, this is Starwolf reporting for the last time. Six months ago, I stumbled upon a game called Runescape that some of my friends back home were playing. Sure enough, I got hooked and played it from day to day, enjoying the game. After about a month or so, I grew lonesome, for I entered college and none of my friends played Runescape anymore. I went of the Tip.it forums and revealed myself to the world of clanning, wanting to be recruited. Lamb was the first to spot my request and invited me to join Ancient Legion, the clan I'm in today.
After a few days in Ancient Legion, I already participated in so much. I went to a war, went to some events, and got Runescape membership. Times were good. At my college town, I got myself a job and was doing a decent job in my studies, more good things were happening. But as with all things, good times must come to an end....
About halfway through October, my job, my classes, and Runescape life got a lot harder. I was promoted to manager at my job, my classes past the drop-out date, and I was promoted to Senior Member here! I can't belive what I have done, but things started to take a turn for the worse. At my job, I was being blamed for everything, being the new manager I am, for any kind of wrongdoing. In school, my grades started to plumment as the second half of the semester is always the hardest part. In Runescape, I burdened myself with the concept of Contests and Compeitions, hoping everyone would have a great time, but caused me alot of strife and stress.
Once winter break arrived, I was at an all time low. I was demoted at my job for being wrongfully accused of another mangaers mistake. I made a 1.2 gpa that semester in school for getting two D's and failing a class. Lastly, I was deeply addicted to Runescape. The Runescape addiction was completly unavoidable because I was living by myself in my dorm room with nothing else to do with my time.
Now Spring has started, and while some things have improved, some have gotten worse. I have no been FIRED from my job for the owner's stupidity of leaving the dough out when it was my shift. So I lost my job because of my boss's mistake. So now that I have no job, I have no income. Something has to give, and the only thing I can give away is Runescape.
My time is at an end here in this virtual world, and I loved and enjoyed every minute of it. I don't regret the time I've spent playing this game because I've never had such a great time with people I have never met before. Sadly, I have to give it up. It's time for me to grow up now, 20 years old now, and I need to move on and focus on what's truly needed in life : school, job, family, love. Runescape just doesn't fit in the equation that is the neccesity of life.
I have greatly enjoyed my time spent with every one of you, even if we've had a few spats or an arguement or two. This time will be cherished and never forgotten, or else that time is wasted. Learn from my mistake fellow gamers, and don't follow in my footsteps. They lead to a unihabitable lifestyle that may lead me to the brink of who knows what. I know for now, my Runescape time is out, but I don't know if it won't be rekindled. If for some reason I decide to return to this wondorous game, I hope to seem some new faces, and some old ones. I last leave you with this : AL FTW! :D :wub: :(
Starwolf signing out....... :'(

I met you on tip it a few months back. You were one of the first people to be nice to my when I made my first blog ever, and also the first time I'd ventured onto tif.
Then later on, I was bored, so decided to look for a clan, and on your good judgement came here.
Now it's a few months on, and just like we all have to move on in our lives for whatever reason it may be, you're leaving.
Star... I'll miss you, as will everyone else here. :'(
(Except maybe p00n :angry: )

Sad to see ya go man, But its very responsible what you are doing. Good luck with fixing up your life.
animal magik - January 23, 2009 06:20 AM (GMT)
It's bad to see negative things happening to great people, but I'm sure things will look up for you soon Star. It's what you deserve.

I don't see a thread for any vote, but I was going to say this anyway.
I won't be voting for a head of the events team. That stresses favortism and I don't want others to feel unloved. I've sold all my junk, armor, weapons, and everything else in my bank. The only thing I have kept is the one thing that keeps me me, my Starwolf outfit. If you got lucky enough to see it, be glad you did. I hope to someday return here, I had a great time and I hope to see AL prosper in my absence. AL FTW :D

Acefire1337 - January 23, 2009 11:10 AM (GMT)
It is a sad day indeed..., I totally understand you're point.
When i am playing games i have the same problem, my exams this period are worser then normally just cause i played RS.
You will be missed by me you were great guy/event coordinator :(
Goodluck with life, sort the things out and come say hi once in a while ;)

All I can say is have a good time in life :(

KK, I'm too pissed to make a good post atm. Maybe later.
Hellbound487 - January 23, 2009 02:12 PM (GMT)
Bye star.. Lots of fun with you :) gonna miss you man..
Kevinsaurus - January 23, 2009 03:48 PM (GMT)
oh damnit... crap... why do u have to go... sigh...
red ring 95 - January 23, 2009 04:26 PM (GMT)
im not frustrated or anything. any sane person would get rid of a game over his job or schooling.
even though it sucks to say it, you made the right choice bud.
send us an update of your rl every once in a while k?
blompty2 - January 23, 2009 04:41 PM (GMT)
bye...i think..i know that you will be missed by everyone in the clan. and that's coming from a newbie.
have a good life and pop in once n'n a while to say hi.
starwolf_ftw - January 23, 2009 05:28 PM (GMT)
Thanks guys for your support. I'll still be here chatting away and helping run some events, even though I won't play. The forums are quite fun and it's not as time consuming as RS :P. Anyways, if you want to check on my progress of getting my life back on track, you can look at my blog at this link.http://z9.invisionfree.com/Ancient_Legion/...2644&st=0last
Kerkennah - January 23, 2009 06:39 PM (GMT)
Star, its great that you realize you have to get your life in order, and im sure rs wasn't helping. I hope everything goes well for you, and its ok if your going to stop playing, life is more important and since your already in college, whatever you do there wil affect the rest of your life. You could be like my friend, he goes to college, but he never plays rs unless he has winter or summer break. When he has those, he plays alottttt.
Well once again star, good luck and i hope everything goes well for you. I can't believe you got fired for the boss's mistake :(
emad - January 23, 2009 11:13 PM (GMT)
Want me to kill your boss for you?
damon - January 24, 2009 04:46 AM (GMT)
wow bro thats deep.. makes me think if i wanna play rs anymore. i mean college is coming up in a few months for me too
starwolf_ftw - January 24, 2009 05:40 AM (GMT)
Runescape does take up a lot of time that can be used for something else that can be productive. The more time you play anything, Runescape, wow, or any other game like them, and you are taking time away from your school work, personal life, possible job time. I'm not saying that it's best to quit, but it's best to play in moderation. I played Runescape waay too much since I have started playing, and a break from RS is just what I need to get my life back on track.
Icewolf68 - January 24, 2009 06:19 PM (GMT)
Does this mean.... No more wolf bros? (*howl*) :( Smart choice though Star... I will miss you pal. Just wondering though "a break from RS is just what I need to get my life back on track"... Does that mean you will be back?
Either way, your a great friend and good luck with your irl stuff!
K Arthur90 - January 24, 2009 07:56 PM (GMT)
He'll be back, after he packs his life back in the track, otherwise we'll pc-hack him and give him a whack.
Hey... I am a poet!

rsw armoury - January 24, 2009 11:43 PM (GMT)
aww u gotta stay =( we'll miss u...
but i agree with u, rs does suck your life away, a break from it is always good
starwolf_ftw - January 25, 2009 04:58 AM (GMT)
Til I make my miraculous return to the game, I intend to stay here on the forums. When that day comes, I intend to be a member here again, but I don't want my Senior member status back. I'll earn it again through time and effort like everyone else.
