Even though it feels like there are no people left here who actually know me, I know there still are some that do, and maybe some that don't but will take a few moments of their time to read this. Sorry if it gets a little melodramatic.
Back in 2012, incredibly 5 years ago, I started playing Minecraft Survival Multiplayer on a server that probably no one currently here knows, but it could be regarded as a direct predecessor of Minecats. I was unhappy with my social life (a better term would be "school life", as much of a social life as one could have when 12 years old) at that time and the following few years and I never even though that this silly little game could make it so much better. Minecats MP was my happy place. I wasn't obsessed with it, but I felt happy and accepted. I finally met people that I liked and that liked me. Cheesy, I know, but that is how Minecraft became a big part of my life for a few years, which may not seem long in retrospect, but those years are quite critical in one's early life, the first years of adolescence, a period in which we are commonly sorted either into the "cool kids" or the "outcasts". Minecraft made being an outcast in real life not such a bad situation. This is why I've given this quite a lot of thought, for quite some time now.
Before I get to the usual thanks and mentions, let me actually say why I'm writing this.
For half a year now, Minecraft in general has been boring to me. I used to occasionally get bored with it before, but now it seems like I've personally depleted all it has to offer. For the past few months, I've only been coming online every now and then, staying for no more than 5 minutes. A big part of this is the fact that 99% of the people I've known have left, besides the overall drop of player numbers. But an equally big part of it is the fact that I'm simply bored with Minecraft as a game, which is why this farewell is different than some other ones in the past, that usually say something in the lines of "it's time for me to move on (meaning to another, likely more popular, server)". I WILL, THOUGH, occasionally visit, maybe stay a while and chat, maybe even build a little something, but I don't expect I'll "pull a bkauf" and come back full-time a month after this.
Now, I feel it would be appropriate to mention a few names, even though most of them are gone and will probably never read this. I'd like to thank the following people for being great co-players and friends, most of which are more recent:
-OoychaiY, the Minecraft tycoon, the gentle giant, an unexpected good friend from South Africa/Thailand, with whom I'm still in contact and I hope to stay in touch
-Jacki, the annoying little Arab-turned-friend who I'm also still in touch with on Facebook
-PuarZilla, who would find this terribly corny, but I thank him for being somewhat of a mentor of mine in certain situations
-lightfire and SleepyDesu, great staff members and friendly, welcoming players and some of my favorite Canadians
-Vidad/Cygnus, another one of my favorite Canadians, a fellow metalhead
-JellyBeanRed, yet another favorite Canadian of mine, who was always a great person to talk to
-apigwithabat, fellow history nerd and great builder
-TehSabbingSlayer, a veteran, pyromaniac and always fun to be around
-Synthet1k, also a veteran, one of the greatest mods I've ever had the pleasure of playing with
-Avenger49, the forgotten legend
-Alfy (can't remember the numbers)
and the last one I can remember at the moment...
-DemonChicken48, the first person I ever played Minecraft with
Of course, there are many, many, many more great people I've met, probably even some I value greatly but didn't remember to put on the list. These are just the players that stood out the most as friends and co-players.
I'm going to end this from a quote from no other than the real Gandalf himself:
“I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.”
See ya around, you lovable bunch.
