posticon Sad


Well, I did something I thought I'd never do voluntarily. I admitted that it's been about 8 months since I logged into any of my 3 accounts in EQOA. I've been doing budget stuff, and realized that it's financially irresponsible to pay for something on a continuing basis that you don't use.

I canceled my accounts tonight. emoticon

Despite my insistence that I'd be one of the folks playing on the day they pulled the plug on the servers.... I had to admit to myself that I can put that money to better use elsewhere. (I also canceled my gym membership last week that I hadn't used in 2 years emoticon )

 I just haven't been in the basement at all in 6 months except to get Christmas decorations out and put them away... to cancel the accounts I had to do about 10 minutes of excavation around the TVs/PS2s.

Still, I'm very sad anyway. It was easier than I remember hearing about, I'd thought SOE had buried the cancel account buttons deep in the account management, not made it an easy one click and "are you sure" .... boom, done. It's only after the fact that I think about making some fun banzai runs around the world deathgating over and over, or putting all my stuff on auction for a tunar, finding a lucky soul that's running coaches the hard way and giving him all my money. Too late now. emoticon

I don't even have a clue what I'm spending, auto pay on one account is every 3 months, I think I paid a year's worth on another account, and the third is every 6 months? I'm sure between the 3 accounts it's somewhere between $30-40/month. The good news is that it'll be $30-40/month closer to paying off the last credit card, then on to upgrading our house in the next year or so. emoticon Not much, but every penny helps when you have a big goal like this.

RIP Danladi, Myrelle, Gnellie, Mendoza, Teelabrown, and at least 20 other distinct personalities. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hey, thanks for grinding those last bubbles to 60 for Flit. I'm still hoping to meet up with you in another MMO someday.

Re: Sad


Regardless of the game, real life must trump it. In this case, real life needs trump keeping the accounts open.

It is sad, but you need to do what is best for you first; and you have.

Re: Sad


It's been a long time since those first VC raids. My wife was still pregnant with our son who will be six in April!! It's been a long time since I moved on to Final Fantasy, City of Heroes, then finally settled into WoW, but I remember how hard it was to stop billing on EQoA.

I remember how excited we all were when you had your baby. emoticon We felt like aunts and uncles... or in my case, grandparents emoticon
