POST SOME FUCKING NEWS YOU GUM GUZZLING
So much love. . .and last but not least, let's not forget
about, "UPDATE THE MOTHER FUCKING SITE YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE"
which contains this message inside:
So I figured it was about time to update the webpage. The truth
is you wont be seeing many more, if any, updates from me. I
will do my best to sneak one in here or there when time permits but
for all intents and purposes this may well be the last update I do
here. No need to worry folks, I am currently working on the
next update crew which will provide all of you freaks and social
mifits plenty of good reading while at work, home or the computer
room in Bellevue Hospital.
For those of you who don't know, I hardly play Everquest
anymore. When I switched jobs, my hours also changed, and the
way things work now, I am never online during the *normal* raid hours
of Legacy of Steel. In fact, I don't even have much time to log
in any more regardless. I am lucky if I can log in at
all. As a result I have also stepped down as leader of the
guild. There are only a few people I'd wager in all of EQ who
understand what it takes to run a guild like Legacy of Steel.
Sure there is a plethora of guilds out there. But very few
function and succeed at the level of Legacy of Steel. A guild
like ours cannot succeed with a leader who is not online. I
realize this. The last thing I wanted to do was run the guild
into the ground by being a non-presence. So I stepped down to
make room for new leadership so the guild could move forward without
me. There are far too many talented, skilled mo fakas in LoS to
force them to wait around till their slacker leader could log in.
But don't get your hopes up, homies, I'm not quite quitting EQ just
yet. I still have far too many friends on The Nameless to stop
Speaking of logging in, I hadn't been able to get online for a week
and when I finally had a minute of free time I decided to play
EQ. So I log onto the Nameless and found my character standing
at the zone in to Ssra Temple. I say hi to everyone in
guildchat. . they were off somewhere raiding. Two seconds later
Pain and Suffering strikes me. I die instantly. Wow,
cool, I think to myself. That's a neat new "feature". .
.instant death to anyone who doesn't log in for over a week. I
petition for a GM res since I died to NOTHING standing at the ZONE
IN. While I am waiting for a GM to get back to me the guild
gets engaged in some big Ragefire drama (you know that *fixed* spawn
that no longer has any problems). After waiting for hours for
no GM res, not even a response from a guide, I go to ME to camp the
VT shard with Rhap. That was my *fun* night of EQ.
Somehow it seemed almost poetic to me that the one night I was able
to play in weeks was spent a) dying to NOTHING b) not getting any
customer service c) Ragefire Drama d) VT shard camp. Fun, fun,
fun. When will it ever stop!
Now, I realize some of you are just bursting with curiosity,
wondering how I've been spending my time since I am not putting much
of it into EQ. Well, I work. Lots. I come home late
at night and watch midnight World War II documentaires and listen to
Pink Floyd. Then I sleep. Then I work more. Then I
work some more. Then I log into EQ and die to nothing,
Then work some more.
But today I have off! So I decided to spend some quality time
with all my friends here at legacyofsteel.net. After this I
think I'll sit on the patio and listen to some Bob and drink a
beer. That's how retired EQ heroes spend their time,
right? Who knows, maybe I'll even log onto The Nameless and
kill some shit later. . .
Before I wrap this up I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone
who participated on our forums, sent me email and a special thanks to
all the Stalkers. The Stalkers ranged from psychotic prison
rapists, to closet comedians, to deranged lunatics and I loved every
last one of them. I feel truly lucky that I was fortunate
enough to get to speak with so many people from so many different
servers. After all, what makes EQ great is the people -- the
community. And I feel like I got to experience more of the
community than anyone else who ever played this game. I hope
you guys had as much fun as I did participating in this site.
And don't worry, like I said earlier, I promise to deliver a crew who
will continute the tradtion of legacyofsteel.net. Goddamn, I
read other EQ websites and they are such hack, wanna-be's of this
site it's pathetic. From my own server to servers I never knew
existed, I see people ripping this site off and doing a lousy job of
it. So fear not, faithful LoS readers, we will soon rescue you
from the masses of wanna-be's out there. Shit, even my
wanna-be's have wanna-be's. . .
Lastly, I want to say a special thanks to everyone in the
guild. I posted a message to everyone in our private forums but
I just want to say publicly what a special group of people you
are. You guys are truly the only reason I'll ever click that
"connect" button again.
So good luck everyone. Although you won't see much of me around
anymore in EQ, you sure as hell haven't seen the last of Tigole
