As an ex-player, thank you for all the memories

Recommended Posts

I only played EL for 2 or 3 years before stopping in 2009, and I haven't thought about it much since, but the other day I started thinking about the great times I had in-game. I never thought I'd enjoy an MMORPG before I discovered an obscure entry in a list of Linux-compatible games. Even if I never reached a high-level, I still enjoyed exploring the world and chatting in the general channel. I can't log onto my old account, whether because of a ban or simple inactivity, but I just wanted to stop by to thank one of my favorite games (and the community that makes it possible).

Yep Eternal Lands [eternal-lands.com] is a good community, yes some of us cannot reach high levels [takes lots of time but worth it]

Well i have quit EL years ago, tried come back some time ago, but its not the same game and specially community. 

I tried few other MMO's and i can say with full responsibility that EL has one of the worst and hermetic community. Only some old former players that stayed in game saves it.

I quit playing for quite awhile and played many other games because EL was my first MMORPG and after my best EL Sweetie, Graywolf died, and I was grief stuck, I quit...this is the real reason for my quitting as I loved EL but for awhile playing was too painful after Graywolf died all I could think of was that loss so I moved on for a number of years.  Also my own health was very poor and I was facing my own mortality for quite some time.  Fortunatley I am much better now.  And time has eased the sadness of my grief.  So I came back and I am glad I came back and I can say something about EL having played now many other MMORPGs, including but not limited to Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Elder Scrolls Online, and some more like single player RPGs like Skyrim, Oblivion, Dragon's Dogma, Torchlight and Torchlight II, and many others.  The MMORPGs that I have played have been mostly perhaps more sophisticated in graphics, fighting etc.  However, EL has the best graphics and fighting of any smaller RPG and there is something to be said for its small size, it is compatible with older or less OP PCs and laptops...some games I have played simply could not be played on very many laptops, mostly they do better on bigger desktop models like my own gaming Lenovo.  But why did I come back..since my computer is good enough I can play any game I wish.  The reason is the community.  So I say BS to EL having a poor community and yes, if you use Hermetic as meaning "tight" we are a tight community and I find that a good thing...we are a very small community and we all know each other and though we argue and sometimes make fun of each other and sometimes, well we love to hate certain people within our group but overall I think we all do care about each other.  Or most of us do.  And that is something you dont get in a larger game.  Guilds in LOTRO and DDO and ESO are jokes compaired to guilds in EL.  There is not the same chatting even....you can die of loneliness in those games if you are shy or bashful at all.  

If you mean "hermetic" as "airtight" I would argue that is not the case...we are not so tight we cannot make room for another to join.  But we perhaps are going to sit and watch the newcomer for signs of trouble because we have seen newcomers who created problems.  But once we see a newcomer is going to make it with us we adopt them and I know this is true as many of you are not all that old as far as how long you have been here and you are accepted and part of the group.   We are tight group but not a closed group.  And I enjoy my time I spend here each day because of all of you besides what I am doing myself.  Now with the improvements to the android app I am very excited as I often have to spend hours or half a day even at doctors offices and now can play EL to pass the time there.   We hear bad crap from people who quit but how about listen to some decent rap from an old player who came back and stayed.....thanks.

I stopped playing like 6-7 years ago. Just came back and I still enjoy the game just as I did back then. And I think this time I will stick to it a bit longer. :P
