    Thoughts on starting a "Graveyard of Players briefly Considering Departure, but Ultimately Deciding Not To" thread?

    Can we also have a "Graveyard Of Retired Alts That Get Reactivated Again Anyway" thread?

    @jester

    You suck. You're a terrible person. The community will be far better off without you.

    Thanks for everything you've done... the guild council was instrumental in the 'early days' of NML and it was a ton of effort and organization from you and the other founders and leaders. The guild council made a real difference and set the table for direct player communication with the NML dev team which has increased dramatically over the last year or so. Thanks for your friendship, thanks for your candidness, thanks for the laughs, thanks for motivating me on the leaderboards when we were neck and neck for the 50th spot a million years ago, thanks for looking out for the community, thanks for the occasional discussion on conspiracy theories, thanks for the regular updates on your home renovation projects, and thanks for listening and allowing me the occasional venting session.

    Good luck and godspeed you salty old bastard.

    Everyone’s got two wolves inside them. One is anger, envy, pride. The other…truth, kindness. Every day they tear each other apart.
    But it’s not the better wolf that wins. It’s the one you feed.

    @jester...

    You probably don’t have any perception, as to how much I respect you, for your efforts in guiding the Board, and indirectly helping NextGames, to grow NextGames... and their maturing understand, of the relationship of a gamer, and the game...

    Sir... thank you...

    I learned a lot from Jester, and laughed at him a lot, too. In my mind, he looked like Johnny Rotten, (though I've known better for a long time now). He was my first NML crush, based on wit alone. A mover & a shaker. End of an era.
    Retired, but not entirely dead.
    "Really? Good luck with that!"

    >
    > For the past 9 or so months I thought I was done with this game and was ready to quit, but each time an update would come out or something new was released to regain my interest and reel me back in, even for a short while. First it was new heroes. Then it was GW, which soon faded due to all of the issues. Recently I looked forward to the newest update, which promised some exciting new content, but after downloading it I've realized that I don't have it in me anymore.
    >
    > I said to myself this morning "I just don't want to play this game. It's not fun and it's taking away too much of my free time." I find myself planning my day/life around this game, which is like a 2nd job and that's even before considering that as a max level player pre-3.2 update I will now need to spend countless hours trying to farm 95 million supplies and then get all of my survivors upgraded after update 3.2 to get to where I was before the update, and for what? Why do I do this to myself?
    >
    > I understand that upgrading is part of the game but it's not balanced at all and is designed to milk money from the whales by having such ridiculously low XP and supplies limits. I'm certain that between Council upgrades that I've farmed the required 95 million supplies and then some, but the low cap of 20 million didn't allow me to save the vast majority of them. So with every Council upgrade it becomes more time consuming and costlier to get to max level, and again....for what? To go further in the Challenge when rewards are such a joke? To complete the Distance and earn 100 hero tokens at the end when it can take THOUSANDS just to upgrade a SINGLE TRAIT for ONE SURVIVOR that increases the survivor's ability 1-3 percent.
    >
    > This game is severely lacking in customization options, which would help to keep things fresh. No ability to change survivor's traits, the badge crafting/sorting system that is a joke with no recipe book that can result in a badge in 1 of 5 sets and in 1 of 6 slots, rarity of components and radios that give shit results 90% of the time when used (keep in mind how many survivors we all have and that it takes thousands of tokens to upgrade a SINGLE TRAIT at high level), the same Challenge maps that repeat over and over week in and week out...yeah...no more. I suppose I should probably add in something about the mess with Season 2 of GW and all the bugs along with all of the mistakes that have been made recently with round passes and compensation bundles being given out.
    >
    > With that said, I can't justify spending more time playing this game and supporting a company so full of mistakes, carelessness, and ineptitude. I had a wonderful guild/family full of great players/people and want to say thank you to my friends in the Dixon guild family for giving me a home for the past year.

    I was just getting to know you, @PigBenis!

    I am sad you are leaving. I hope you and your pretty girl (what a dog!) will have lots of good times now that you aren’t busy with the game. Best wishes for quality time doing the things you love most.
