Title: Irony...weird isn't it?


Starwolf Ftw - May 23, 2009 03:59 AM (GMT)
Yea, I wish it didn't have to come to this again, but I've been extremely inactive lately and that's because it's the summer. The way I have worded the title of this is to show how a lot of people play Runescape starting in the summer, and AL should be expecting significant growth as the first month of summer progresses, but unfortunately for me, the summer is when Starwolfie has to grow up and move on.

My time here has been grand, and this time, I won't be returning. I came here at the start of November as a Trial member and moved up the ranks of Senior member, Event Council, and eventually to my current and soon to be former rank of Council. AL has been a great clan to be apart of and it's sad to say that I'm going to miss each and every one of you.

The reason for my departure is because it's time for me to grow up as an individual and move on in this world. Runescape has been a blast, but it will not help me in any way in the future. I'm 20 years old, flat [BEEP] broke, in college, and lastly depressed because I still don't know what I want to do with my life.

I plan to move forward with my life. Actually pursue my romantic interests, pursue a real career, and start planning for the future. First off is trying to finish college, which I still got another two or three years worth left to go through.

For this summer though, I won't be anywhere near a computer because of work, family issues, and other personal interests. Even if I'm near a computer, I'll most likely just be doing stuff on paint and communicating with the people I know through facebook. The only time I think I'll ever have enough to even play Runescape is when I'm back in school in the fall, which I will try my hardest to keep myself entertained enough outside of Runescape to avoid being dragged back to the computer.

I will bid myself adieu from Ancient Legion knowing that it's in the safe hands of our leaders since before I became a member, Lamb bug and Golden Arm. They have done such a great job to have maintained this clan and put up with all the crap we give them. I give credit to the Council, Fiveh and Chuffa, for holding their positions much longer then I have and I wish them luck with the trials they will be tested with in the future. The Event Coordinators and Senior Members, some of my closest friends here, you have all done so much to get to your rank and have been a huge part of the community here and I hope you continue to make AL a wonderful clan for lost players to go to. Warlords, keep up the excellent work in the warring department; we have achieved a great war record and I hope when I visit we continue at our current win-loss ratio or even greater. To all the Full and Trial members, have a blast here, I'm sure you will.

I'll always say that you guys are such a great clan, community, and superpower to the Runescape world and I hope you all have a blast with each other. Ancient Legion has been such a wonderful experience to me as it has to everyone else here and I wish that feeling will last here for as long as Ancient legion is still alive. Everyone, have a great time playing and have a blast with your fellow members and friends. I'm sad to leave with such unplanned spontaneity, but this is sadly my choice in the long path I have towards life. Embrace your time and your fun while playing, I can never stress this enough. As always, I'll miss all of you and this I know is very lengthy, but thanks to all who read this. Ancient legion has been a big part of my life for this past year, but that's all I'm made for.

Happy 'Scaping everyone, and please make Ancient Legion the best clan it could possibly be. This time for real, Starwolf signing out. :'(

I thought this would happen, noticing your attitude recently. :(
It's been great fun while it's lasted Star, I hope your real life issues leave and you can progress greatly, I really do. I'll miss you a lot, you were my first friend here and it if wasn't for you I wouldn't be here. Thanks for introducing me to the clan and all the friendly people here. You will be missed, that's for sure.
Thanks for making it a wonderfull half a year or so.

matlew5 - May 23, 2009 04:20 AM (GMT)

Icewolf68 - May 23, 2009 04:33 AM (GMT)
No wolf bro!

I'm going to miss you... You were the first one to welcome me to the clan, and have been a great friend ever since. I really hate to see you go, but I understand life is more important than a game.

I'm going to miss you buddy.... *howl*

Don't expect me back to go back to any role of being a council member at all... I grew too attached to this clan and to all of you and it was hard enough to write my previous statement as it was. I'm still in tears...

Yamunu - May 23, 2009 05:53 AM (GMT)
see you in three years ;).

Lord - May 23, 2009 06:20 AM (GMT)

Nooooooooooooo star :o :o :o

That's also ironic. People would just think it's sad and nerdy to be crying over something like this, but when you become attached so much like you have and all of us too, it's not really. Just shows how much of a great member you've been, and I hope everyone feels the same way

Runeter2 - May 23, 2009 10:07 AM (GMT)
No Star! You can't leave! :'(
Well, i wish you good luck with life and all that. Real life is more important than a game, right? :(

Sick Mate 9 - May 23, 2009 10:25 AM (GMT)
star man, its been a pleasure to know you. just knowing you and having you be in the same clan has been a blast
also good luck with everything irl. irl before the computer always.
now go out and get that tan you always wanted and live life to the fullest.
hopefully ill be able to talk to you again sometime down the track.

have a good one,
Sick

Awww :'( :'(

G bye star, you've been an awesome member and a great friend to me and everyone in this clan. GL in real life, hope you figure out what to do with your life

:'( :'( :'( Bye star

Golden arm42 - May 23, 2009 01:20 PM (GMT)
Meh, I know I'm supposed to be inactive but since Lamb told me about this post I figured I'd make a post.

I think everyone else has done a good job of conveying their appreciation to you, but I'd like to add one more thing. We were doing a roach hunt some months back and we had 6-7 people all having fun killing bugs. Then, someone else shows up to participate, except he can't get down to the spot where we are. I remember thinking at the time "Ah, gawd, I don't want to go have to deal with that guy, he has no idea what he's doing". Before I could say anything, though, Starwolf responds to the guy's call for help, leaves roaches where he's having a good time, and helps the clanmember get through the requirements to come down to where we are. I can't tell you how much my estimation of Starwolf shot up that day.

You know, though, that you're making the right choice. Runescape is a fun game, but it is just a game. In the short term, it will hurt -- you'll miss people here, miss playing the game. I've done that before. But then, your real life will grow up and fill the Runescape time, and you'll be a more meaningful person than you were before. It will be hard, but stay on the course you know in your heart is right.

I wish you the best of luck in real life, Star, and your service to AL will never be forgotten.


Redeyes2496 - May 23, 2009 01:40 PM (GMT)
I remember when you first joined up Star, these last months have seemed to go by really fast. But you're right, you should work on doing something with your life, and hang out with friends and stuff. Real Life>Runescape, that's how it always should be. Good luck in life, I'm sure you'll pursue everything that you want to.

Donovan Kays - May 23, 2009 01:54 PM (GMT)
:(

I know that everyone has to move on sometime in their life, but it will still make people sad :(

No other member has done more for this clan than you have.

Best of luck in real life !

Starwolf Ftw - May 23, 2009 04:43 PM (GMT)
I'm still going to chill here on the forums from time to time, so I won't be gone forever. :D I still plan to be here and help with decisions if it is needed. I wish you all the best in running things.

matlew5 - May 23, 2009 06:16 PM (GMT)
pursue a career in tennis plox


I want to watch you win Wimbledon :wub: :wub:



K Arthur90 - May 23, 2009 09:23 PM (GMT)
> Hey there starwolf.
> I remember we joined around the same time. And you had a "leadership" spirit which really helped me get into the clan. Most of the trial members that joined about the same time got really into the clan and are now quite nice members.
> Then you shook the clan a bit. Made a few events, took a few members from the app forum to the community itself, and started this "Contest" thing.
> There you go. You got a "EC" rank.
> Then you kept scheduling events, managing the EC forum and maintaining the order around here, enough to catch Lamb's attention. You became "Senior". Or should I say, "Starwolf is FTW" rank :P
> As this wasn't enough, your work as a senior member was a big deal to the clan. Always keeping order at hand, "befriending" Trial Members, keeping the CC clean, and still leading the contests! That earned you a HC rank! You became the leader's right hand!
> From that day on, this clan never stopped growing. Every Trial Member saw you not as a High Council member, but as a member they could talk to when needed to complain, suggest, approve, deny stuff for the clan (and you got some patience there :o). I'm sure some people saw you as a model member. Joined as a Trial Member half an year ago, got your first 99 on the clan, climbed the ranks to the second best rank on the clan but still considered yourself a standard member, only using your rank when needed. While HC, you were still a "Senior", closing, moving, editing, threads, you were still an "EC", hosting the contests, and, not least, you were still a member.
> Having a MMORPG clan is a good thing for a few reasons. One of them is that you make a few friends that you can easily keep in touch with. Just pop-by and post something. Even when you quite playing RS, get on college, get a gf (and a few years later a fiancée, maybe ;) - but when you get there, I think your hands will be a little "tied" so forum frequency would be expected to drop as other things arise :yes:), get a work; on weekends, when you had all your home studying done, your gf is away, your job doesn't starts until next week, and you got no-one to talk to on messengers, you drop by and talk about stuff here on AL.
> I heard some Trial members said AL has a nice friendly environment, and I'm sure everyone here would agree that at least 50% of it was due to you, star.
> I'm sure I talk by the whole clan when I say:
> We wish you luck, fortune, love, success on real life. We hope that you can still keep in touch with AL, posting here and there, (you could start writing in red if you get "Forum-Addicted" again :P), and maybe, 20 years from now, you might skim through old files and find that old pixel signature of a wolf looking at the stars with a 99 cooking cape

... As the ceremony ended, the legionnaire took of his red cape, laid it down over the altar. As he did that, the legionnaires applauded, as some legionnaire in red capes took the cape from the altar, and hanged it on a frame. It was now free for a new legionnaire to wear it.
But no one thought of that at that time. As the legionnaire put on a purple, red-trimmed cape, filled his backpack with some provisions from the headquarters' storage, he equipped a bright red metal scimitar, and left through the front door, aiming for the horizon, in search of the unknown.
As he left, the artists just finished the last touches on a big 35x20in portrait of the former High-Council Legionnaire, Starwolf.

> Goodbye, Starwolf. :'(

Unless he played under the name Starwolf. :lol:

Goodbye Star, the whole clan will miss you. Don't really know you yet, but bet you're one of the greatest person in AL. ;)

Goodluck. :wub:

CyberianWolf - May 24, 2009 04:14 PM (GMT)
OMG, I just heard..... :o

I'm so gonna miss you! AL will not be the same, not even close for me. :(

I promise to do the same for some poor noob in the future....in your memory.

I'm really tearing up here bro. I feel like I just lost a friend.
Your lucky, I understand why your leaving and that life does come first, or I'd come down there and kik your butt.
Gl with college! Gl with your family! Definately Gl with the ladies....

You will be missed.....*Howl Out*

Dude, I'm just now reading this and in shock to see it's been up for two days. I know what you mean man, I haven't been nearly as active this summer as I'd planned, I think I might have to take this same path soon.

Good luck with life Wolfe, you've been a lot of fun to talk to on here. I'll miss you a lot, but hopefully I'll hear from you occasionally. I know I go through huge on and off streaks with RS and maybe later on you'll come play some. Have a good summer man.

Tony

Starwolf Ftw - May 24, 2009 10:26 PM (GMT)
Thanks guys once again. I might start playing again when life becomes more stable and less barbaric, mainly when I go back to school. In the meantime, I'll come on every few days or so just to keep my account a little active so hackers don't attack it (they seem to go for those that are pretty inactive, like how they hit Chuffa in his inactive streak). I'll still be here on forums, and if needed and if I'm available, I'll come on to do something from time to time.

Tony, don't worry bout taking my path, it was way overdue for me. I'll hopefully see you all online sometime.

Wolfclaw104 - May 26, 2009 12:22 AM (GMT)
oh no, oh no!!!

This stinks for me, really badly. It is actually hard to imagine (sorry for spelling) without you...ur the one who has always helped me.

This will hurt, when I am just coming back.

The Wolf Pack will be finished =/, I wish u gl!!!! U will achieve!!

*howl*

Lit - May 27, 2009 01:05 AM (GMT)
I'm kind of late, but cheers if you get to read this. :lol:

Ever since I joined, I always saw a leader in you. I remember seeing a person with a weird-looking mammal with sunglasses post in my Application Topic, very friendly indeed. I first didn't get the username (Starwolf? Did he type wolf instead of fox?), but then I got used to it. We all did, some had already got used by that time. We've seen you achieve milestones post-wise other members could never dream of, we've seen you grow up all the way from EC (and some from Member too) to Senior then High Council and who knows what else. We've seen you lots on the CC, always in your good mood and with your happy-to-give-advice personality, helping New Members and Old Members alike, without making discriminations, without even caring if you would get anything in exchange. The fun part is that you got something in exchange, as you were recognized several times as one of the friendliest members (not only on the Spring & Winter awards), and everyone gave you the respect you truly deserved.

I'm not sad because you leave, since I understand your case and I'm glad you had the valor to make such a hard decision. I'm sad because I didn't have the pleasure to be here since you joined, and see you grow straight from trial member status.

So, good luck in life. ^_^

Starwolf Ftw - May 27, 2009 04:54 AM (GMT)
Thank you all for the complements. It means alot to me, but I can not accept them because I do not deserve them. I found out my grades from college the other day, and they were not so good. They were better than my abysmal showing from the past fall semester, but it wasn't enough...

I am now SUSPENDED for 6 months from my college and I can not return there til the Spring on next year, 2010. In the fall of '08, I had a terrible semester, it brough my GPA down to a 1.84, which put me on probation. I was given one semester to bring it up to at least a 2.00, which I didn't because I failed English again, yet I brought my GPA to a 1.98, and it doesn't round.

I am a hypocrite. I've been too focused and worried about reminding everyone about how they need to do school work and stay ahead of the game, but I failed to do so myself. This is another reason for my departure. I can't live with myself for being so low and be a part of you guys because ALL of you deserve much, much more.

So instead of me being on Summer Vacation looking for a summer job and enjoying the holidays, I am instead looking for "real" work and start living life the way it is if you don't go to college. So in my free time, I'll be playing RS like normal because there is nothing I really can do now except for work.

Unfortunetly as I have stated before, I am not returning to AL as I have said a little bit ago. I'm too ashamed to be apart of such a clan and show my face here because of it, and I'm sorry if what I have done is a "lie." I've enjoyed my time here and that's all I can say about it, and I hope that's what you have gotten as well.

-Starwolf :(

animal magik - May 27, 2009 09:03 AM (GMT)
Oh wow, that's terrible. I hope they improve so you can show them it was wrong to suspend you.

Lamb Bug - May 27, 2009 11:01 AM (GMT)
Ahh, man, that's gotta hurt. Study really really hard over the summer and I'm sure you can get it up. :)

Darklord99 - May 27, 2009 10:49 PM (GMT)
sucks to hear about that man. Just move to alberta and you can get a job starting at 16$ a hour if you know people :sunglasses:

Golden arm42 - May 28, 2009 12:43 PM (GMT)
Ahh man, if you want out then tell us straight up, don't say it's not becuase you're not playing anymore. :(
