Well, it looks as though my time here has drawn to a close. I became increasingly frustrated with my unbeleivably limited card pool, and personal collection and my inability to drive to real games (not old enough). Then, i have fallen in love with Descent 3 online play, which has been chewing up my free hours. I looked in on the Last Week, and while i was mildly interested in Makou and Matt's latest keeper builds, but I've been out of the loop so long it would feel weird to pop in with my usual comments.
Even when i couldn't play Magic for real, BD gave me a sense of community and belonging that was truly worth the time i spent here. I was sad to find upon my latest return a certain someone had stopped the Community titled posts, that removed much of the enjoyment i gleaned from this place. Descent in-game, in the lobby and on the community bulletin boards (**gasp**! apologies for my breach of loyalty) has replaced this lost sense of belonging, especially since i have joined a clan. Maybe I shouldn't have been using BD for company. But that was the best part about it for me, getting to know and laugh with the people here. Many of the old pillars of this place have dropped away, and the newcomers, some of which I could really have gotten along with, I just haven't gotten to know the same way because of these "spam" restrictions. No, I'm not shooting at you Rakso, I'm just telling it like it is.
I'll miss you all, but for an indefinite period, you won't be seeing me around here. I'm also going to withdraw from the ToC5. I wish i didn't have to but after having half of my matches fall through and finally having given up on BD, I suppose I should for fear of holding the rest of you up. You can strike deck #30 from your lists. I was sort of hoping to get some help teir 2-ing this deck after the tournament (Balance over Time Walk was a fun experiment, even if it failed miserably and I knew it was stupid to start with) but alas, it shall not be.
I love y'all, and all of you to come.
good journeys Liam...
You too? I can't help but to feel we're losing all major regulars...
wish you luck
We'll miss you
Don't worry, Liam, I know that you'll be back.
No one can break the addiction that is known as Magic: The Crackpipe Smoking.
In the meantime, fare thee well.
This place is falling apart. Sad, sad, sad.
Liam, I can´t blame yu for that, just wish that you are back some time. Bye,
Puschkin, Defiant Vanguard against the Phyrexian Invasion
Yeah, I remember BD when it was an ezine and the Mills had a white background. Also, when the jokes section was updated.
You'll be missed, man. Whatever you do, DON'T SELL THOSE CARDS. That MtG monkey could be up on your back again before you know it of these days. He's a persistant little sucker.
Happy trails, amigo.
Take care Liam. Yamo is on to something you should listen.
May peace be with you,
