It had been long four and a half year most of which had been good time. Now it is time to have some proper holidays and move on to other things so I have decided to close my account effective of 22nd july.

I had been really enjoying the early levelling days and to this day I still remember how massive the world seemed to be when I first left Tirisfal, ventured to Silverpine and visited Orgrimmar. It also had been a scary place when I first entered into EPL at level 8 and got ganked by those nice spiders near Bulwark or Sons of Arugal somewhere in Silverpine woods.

Naturally it all lost its old appeal with the passing time, yet still there are few vanilla favourites of mine that I am gladly revisiting every time. Amongst these are Stratholme, Scholomance, Shadowfang Keep and Blackwing Lair.

Enjoying the exploration and slowly making way to 60 was cool for me by the time I started raiding and then it is how I had spend almost 4 years. Day by day, raiding. For greater glor... erm yeah. There were gloroius moments but then it all boiled down to min maxing your gear and challenging yourself to be better. Except the notorious urge to see all the new and unexplored zones and encounters and bringing them down, min maxing gear and challenging myself to do even better dps were main points of interest.

You can bring it down to proving how 'leet' you are by posting typical QQ, but for me the gearing part always was one of the most interesting ones. Separating those who knew their shit from those who didn't. Another time when the retarded RNG came into play I really started to wonder to myself - what for am I doing this repetitive stuff if I cannot max out despite raiding almost non-stop. So there went my 3k dps goal on Brutallus pre-patch.

There were also few other important factors involved in my retirement from raiding and Wrath after the last Kil'jaeden kill. Lilska and Yin, the only two persons that knew in advance what I had been going to do, quitting just helped me out in holding onto that decision.

I got really disappointed about some individuals throughout TBC but that's not the drama thread so there won't be any names. I had been pretty much very open in communicating about the issues so you already should know who you are. I would just say grats on being so crap players with undeserved good PR or on proving how much retards you are on personal level.

Anyway away from the bad stuff I would like to thank Yin and Lilska for making Wrath happen and all the amazing time we had raiding from Karazhan (in my case due to average levelling speed it was from Aran serverfirst) to Kil'jaeden. I doubt I am exaggerating, you just saved this server, at least, on Horde side from becoming one of the shittiest servers around.

There are numerous people I would like to mention and thank some for just being around some for much more than that, in no particular order:

Solkaner, Nepharia, Lilska, Yin, Sinar aka Shirokazu, Kabale, Sharapova, Jezter/Zej, Anthrraxx, Orza, Grazkull, Harr/Purgator, Takfiri, Ralph and Pete (all you oldschool OTD people would know it from BWL days), Naraya, Waagh aka Denys, Lus, Ruoste, Serhiy, Trupi, Belfer, Ufthak, Odyn and Owieczkyn, Tau and Munchies, Elexin, Jurgan, Khalkarot, Sloth, Moonbasher, Lac, Morreh, Miw (except the ganking outside battlemasters part ;), Asura, Junpei, Kaana, Rears, Condition, Saha, Abberare, Akronimia, Hosh, Ferale, Touka, Toshiro, Ofric, Joortje, Soallus, Maur, Ruki, Age and Eilonwy, Elfsbane, Aventious, Cptpicard aka Inhumatus, Iyachtuxvim, Keltor, Malrazor/Malorian, Onkelswe, Reclusiam, Ristique, Xed, Troldepus, Vanroguesingusasongofc special thanks to Turiel for making SSE.com

If I forgot someone I am sorry, going to update it one day.

I will update this post with a video or some old screenies and some names when I see fit. Thanks again and maybe see you some time around the corned of Icecrown Citadel.

E: fixed the list after realising how many people I missed on it. In fact I still do not remember all of them :/

Eventhough you and me havent spoken in a while, I recognise you as a person who said what was on his mind. And for what it matters "Vatt the Mad", for that you will always have my respect.

Have a nice holiday moim przyjacielem!

Vattghern I'd like to thank you too for being around back then. Such a good memories that make me still smile. I think I will never regret the huge amount of time spent on vanilla even tho it had some bad effect for rl. But why not if people you spent time with are as nice as Vatt! ^_^

/respect!

even though i dont play for a looong time already, I'm still visiting these forums from time to time... seeing that you leave, all I can say is I hope you will succeed in whatever you decide to do (and i'm sure you will), you were one of the best players I've known who at the same time were understanding and extremely friendly :)
trzymaj sie Vatt, milo wspominam wspolne chwile w OTD, dla mnie byl to najlepszy czas w calej historii mojego grania w WoWa.

Hey Vatt, I don't think we ever played that much together, most of my memories seem to be about trying to gank you in early BGs .. but still, I'd know you as one of the original warlocks and of course from the forums. Have fun in RL :)

I have decided to close my account effective of 22nd july.
Frankly, I would prefer to see you perish in a fire, but I guess that this will have to do.

Goodbye, Vattghern. I hope that we never meet again.

This is like a class reunion, old OTD'ers crawling out from under their RL rocks. :D

Anyway, not that tanks and locks had very much to do with each other in vanilla (except trading Healthstones) but you were an awesome player back then and I can only assume you've become even better.

Sad to see the old geezers leave but that's the way of things and there are more important stuff out there so I wish you the best of luck.

Be careful out there!

Bit disappointed you didn't carry on raiding "hardcore" in WotLK, same goes to Sharapova really. I enjoyed playing with you guys loads even though it may not have been for long. Best of luck with whatever it is you decide to do next, and hopefully someday our paths will cross again!

Its a fucking shame you left, but its a blast to have met you.

One of those pics above brought back some nice memories! Wsg for 47 mins! Loved those good thrillers when they happened. Kinda shame those are the past now.

But then again, times change, and we assumedly need to do the same. You can't step into the same river twice, as a wise Greek said looooong time ago.

Thanks for fun games and respectful rivalry.

Best of luck in the RL from me, too!
Enjoy life.
