My Last Night on Leviathan, Part Three: Some Last Goodbyes

So, with that, I transfer worlds. I'll probably post these and send the profane rant to the STF first.

Then I have to take down everything in my delivery box and everything in the Auction House which hasn't sold yet. Then, I log out and transfer.

I guess, effective immediately, I'm a free agent again, and my Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings are now free.

To that end, I wish well the good people of Lengendary, my former Dynamis linkshell.

Kiana, the hard-working leader who takes no crap. I know I can be a bit of a pain, but at least I try not to be... Good luck on completing Ice one of these runs, and on getting your two remaining pieces of DNC AF2...

Hefty, our little sac-taru. Boats and hoes, eh? Here's one more ceremonial chuck into the snowbank on the way out, and best wishes to an entertaining little tarutaru.

Donbibo, our resident basketball. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, consider how many times a RDM dies in Dynamis...)

Palantor, our main PLD. Glad we got to talk during that whole sorry episode which sealed this decision.

Mickoftime, ditto.

Dogan, I hope the assault static can work well for you.

Indred, may you never be healed out of the yellow... :)

Gadwin, glad I could stand up for you on that last Ice run, and Mektar can kiss my motherfucking ass...

… and to all the other members I forgot, I'm sorry. It's just been a really tough go of it the last several months or so...

And, one more goodbye before I do slam the door in the fucking cheaters' faces:

Kobayashimaru, who suggested Leviathan: I'm sorry. That server has taken such a dive in the last six months.

ON EDIT: As Seymour said in FFX: It is done. As of about 1 AM this morning, PDT, the 30th of October: I am Starcade, now from Siren. Yeah, it's probably because of the Besieged record, but let's see if, as I suspect, this might transfer to a few more players who just MIGHT give a damn.

Good luck with Siren. I'm inclined to expect that Astral Burn is prominent on every server, since it's fast xp and SE has decided not to do a damn thing about it. They seriously better fucking fix it with this update. SMN is already allowed to cheat, why should they be allowed to cheat and a get a new /ja?

I hope it works out well.

I think the thing with Leviathan is that, over the course of the almost-year I was on the server, it became more and more evident that the political climate on the server was changing to the point where, minus a bunch of cheating idiots, you really couldn't play on the server.

I was trying to hold on as long as I could with just the Dynamis stuff, and, really, it just wasn't going to hold together.

I mean, I really begin to wonder if the only real thing left in this game _is_ players in large groups basically telling Square-Enix where they can stick their rules.

As for the stuff on Astral Burn and the like: See my comments to the Special Task Force. The only reason, really, I didn't just put Windower on my account just to piss them off is that I find the concept abhorrent.
