Hey everyone, Iíve decided to take my leave of the server. At the end of the day, this is a game, and Iím not enjoying the time I put into it.

As for some of the particular reasons I am choosing to switch servers is mainly that I am a person with a competitive attitude. I donít really care about downing content first, but rather putting a serious effort into everything and having a feel of progress. Regardless of how insignificant the fight or encounter, Iím the kind of person that wants to give it my best to see the limit of my own ability against others. The main problem is that Coeurl, as a whole, is a dead server. There are few players, and fewer good players to compete with. This is the primary reason Iím server transferring. If I were to stay on this server, I would undeniably stay in this guild for the people in it, and this guild is the only reason I have stayed this long on this game, and on this server.

Also, as a whole, I feel I have failed you all as a leader. There have been a lot of decisions I have made that I have regretted since Beta, and most of them we have fought through and gotten past together. However, I still fail overall I have failed to make the guild feel more like a community of friends who work together rather than a simple linkshell raid groups are formed in. The major blame for this falls on me as I have neglected putting enough time into many things to make this a better environment for everyone.

However, there are days where I think people (well at least myself) feel unwelcome. I must admit, I am aware that I am an overly sensitive person. However, I am an introverted person and I think heavily on the impression I leave on people.  Even when I know it is a casual greeting or jokes between friends, as someone with the life history that I have had, it tears me apart internally. Overall, I have a taste in my mouth of having left a negative impression on those around me, not only creating an undesirable environment for you all, but also not promoting enough of a good one to mitigate it.

While this has nothing to do with what I think of you as people, it just is hard on me often to associate with people who interact in a ďnormalĒ way like you all. I am far from normal, and hard to explain without either going into a book of detail or dropping an unnecessary burden on you all. Again, I canít stress how much this guild means to me particularly in regard to it being the only thing that kept me around. There is a large number in the guild that are some of the nicest people I have met in my lifetime and you all have given me encouragement to persevere time and time again.

I had resolved to make sure I got the plot of land bought before I left. I couldnít bear letting you all down on that. Additionally, I am glad I was able to take care of the One God business if nothing else before I left.  I do feel ashamed for letting the stake in the guildís wound on that matter bleed for so long, but at last it did become resolved.

I am simply worn, and need a break. I will be back, at the least in the form of an alternate character to talk or help out in what ways I can, or occasionally in teamspeak to catch up. Well, this is assuming you all donít mind, as I imagine I will hurt many peopleís feelings by leaving,  that may not want to talk to me again for it.

On a technical side of me leaving, I am promoting Werewindle Rikku to be the leader. Werewindle is more than capable of leading you all, and certainly has the personality capable of handling the burden, possibly far better than I do.
As for other officers, I will give some of my opinions to Werewindle, but as he will be the new leader, I will leave for him to decide how to best run things. I believe he will make great decisions no matter what route he takes.

First up, I can't say i'm too surprised by all this.
A blind man could see what you're like in terms of wanting to progress. And i totally agree with what you say about the server and player base on the server.
Like you, if i was to ever jump ship and leave the FC i would transfer servers too, and i have said this to a couple of people in the past already. More so to be on my own timezone but yeah the FC is "home" and would take something big to leave and even then it would be with a heavy heart as it obviously is for you.

As for you feeling you have failed the FC as a leader.....
I'm not going to sit here and spout out a load of bullshit and praise you to the hilt saying how good you were bla bla bla, as that isn't me. I speak my mind no matter how hurtful it is to people. I'm like marmite, you either love me or hate me for it.
Having spent countless years being guild leader/officer/class leader/raid leader etc etc in other games i know just how hard it is to be successful in such a role as yours. You're not the greatest, by far, but you're just as far from the worst at the same time. Sure, i, as well as others did not agree with certain things you would do but i can honestly say i understood and respected why you would do the things you would do. Sure, i would moan and grumble to others at times but if the sheet hit the fan and got too much i would say something, which i did once or twice.
It isn't really up to you or any other individual to make the guild feel like a community of friends, that can only come over time and by everyone chipping in and making the place/environment feel "friendly" whether it be by casual insults or however you show yourself to others. Everyone plays their roles in a community no matter if its in game or in real life.

I'll keep this One God "business" short n sweet. You can fook off if you think you are to blame for anything he said/did and how things got because of it. That goes for anyone else too. As i said on TS the other day, you can't simply demote people from a role after promoting them as it can and most likely would have had detrimental effects further down the line knowing what that fool is like.

Fook the lesser Rikku, he can't even lead himself to dress properly let alone lead a guild.....who in their right mind dresses like a clown and is proud of it unless they clearly have a mental illness. What flavored windows would you like installed in the new house lesser Rikku?


On a closing, more personal note i would just like to thank you Arya. You always knew how to bore the fook out of me with your explanation of fights.
Jokes aside, it's been mostly a pleasure playing with you. I apologize if anything i have said in the past has upset you but pretty much everything about me is sarcastic trolling. Annoying people is more than just a hobby to me.
I feel we aren't too dissimilar in some ways and the mails you sent meant a lot, so thank you. I did plan on speaking with you last night before you left but got called out to work at silly o'clock as the alarm was going off and muggins here is the first contact on the goddam list. I would have said something when you first announced this but it was obvious to hear you were already a little emotional so didn't want to add to that.
Good luck in future, both in game and in life. Don't be a stranger!

She hasn't been on cos she's finally come to her senses and realized WHMs suck and she feels ashamed of wasting so much time on hers.
Plus shes a scrub, period!
