Olrox has left the game.

Post by Olrox » 23 Dec 2009, 09:51

Participating of the forums is getting more and more stressful everyday for me. I've tried to be of help countless times, but now I just see myself trying to make great things, but the results just don't appear and I often end frustrated, when I see that some things aren't taken as serious as I'd wish, and I can't do anything to change it.

I liked to participate on the beginning, it was very fun and I've learned a lot, I saw things improve along with my skills, but there are things that didn't change, unfortunately. And I'm such a bastard that can't help but feel depressed when things go all the way around in relation to what I'd wish.

I had a dream of making something for Warzone, but I just can't keep playing idiot, that's why I've decided to invest my time in other things, because if things continue the way they are, I'll just stress myself even more.

I'm writing this because I didn't want to just vanish, I wanted to say "goodbye" to those who care about it. I am sorry to leave behind so many unfinished works and dreams, but my hopes were dying quite some time ago and now I'm feeling pathetic and ridiculous.

At least I hope that the few things I've made for other people and the project can be used in a good way. All of the content I've produced shall be used by anyone in any way, anywhere, and there's no need to credit me: the people who matter to me know what little I've done, so there's no need for that.

I could keep apologizing for several lines, but it wouldn't do any good. Therefore, I now say my official
goodbye, everyone
and hope that people don't curse me too much for leaving the boat.
That's it.

If you are still going to check this topic... (At least this one.)
Goodbye Olrox, happy Christmas and New 2100 year.
I will miss you, others will too, I think.

On other forums, if someone freaks you out, try freaking them out. ;)

I definitely didn't see any signs of this. Was it something I said?

We'll miss you, Olrox.

He changed in last time, he became somehow more serious...

That's sad, I found your stuff always very interesting, when i lurked trough the threads from time to time. Well, I hope your decision isn't "ultimative" and I hope that it wasn't the webmasters fault :)

You're always welcome if you should change your mind.

This make me laugh quite a while today, there are so many of your post saying you either don't like stuff, or thats not the idea of the game, and such, that you scare away people that are willing to help.

I think I'll say thanks to Olrox since you are a great artist, and its a shame to loose a both talented and willing to help dude, and I feel so much the same that I'm gone too...

Hope you change your mind, though.

Yeah, that's why I said that. Two of my recent posts were criticizing him, but it was intended to be suggestions for improvement - I agree he's, arguably, the best artist we've ever had. :/

We should stop crying for Olrox and continue working with one man less...
It would be really nice to have 2.3.5 before 2010...
