How many other companys could claim the distinction of having taken 6 months to make something worse?
Umm the government?
Anyway I think I would follow in your wake, but as I can't use poisons anyway the ful impact hasn't me...yet. Hey you never know maybe as soon as I hit 18 (or maybe 21) I retire immediately :p
I fully understand though the disgrace Verant has shown us. I cannot believe they had the audacity to do such a thing. Well Gordon was right this time, we are far from being 'severely overpowered' as he said this could make us (read sig for quote).
Despite the fact that they are insanely powerful and useful, again stressing that we will have to be very careful implementing poison to insure that we don't severly overpower them, there are still a LOT of people out there who think that rogues are useless.- Abashi

Oh my god, say it ain't so Wix. I know we'd been talking about burnout and probably leaving the game itself in a few months, but dang one of the things I've always dreamed of doing was grouping together.
There will be a huge loss on Rodcet without you.

I don't know Wix well personally, met him 3 times total, but I know how important he is to our community.
I can honestly say I think Wix is doing the right thing. The only way we can vote is with our feet. Nothing else will work.
Thanks for your duelling document (I personally have lost every duel I ever engaged in, unbroken 100% record). I read that thing over and over. I have the hardcopy in my toilet
Thanks for introducing me to the Safehouse too.

This is just not god damn right. But save me a seat on the bus to the retirement home for rogues - there's a damn good chance I'll be going with you if my feelings don't change after I cool off.
Your influence and contributions have been top notch.

Usually I am sorry to see rogues leave EQ, however I feel the same way. So I grieve not for the retired rogues, only for the loss of a valued poster. As a poster said, its time to vote with our feet, and mine are a walking. I'll still check the safehouse for the banter. I'll not be back this time, EQ will never EVER have a rogue class.

Wix: I'm sorry to see you go, but damned if I don't understand your feelings and even share them.
Kuurus, dammit you're posting my feelings before me again!

Holy heck! I never thought I'd see the day. The old timers are dropping like flies. A dark day for rogues indeed! Make sure I see you in Shadowbane, Wix.
07-03-00, 02:43 AM
Wix come play the Shanks more!
you can even be a shaman or a warrior :P
apart that PvP is much more fun and comeraderie at the war raids etc makes it more 'real like' then the sterile aquaria feeling on carebear servers.
A MMORPG game without PvP is simply not worth the time, EQ taught us.
And we can hope they learn and upgrade team war servers with new rules (someday) heh heh

Btw - why is the Safehouse wasting a perfectly good 6 ft meatlocker? Surely you only need half that space Wix.

Wix you can't! You just got your mask (finally)! Poison's not worth it anyway. It's all about cutting frogs to ribbons and such. Start a druid and kite something, that ought to show you how much you miss cutting stuff up. (looks awefully boring to kite from my perspective)

Aye, Wix, you'll be missed greatly (as I posted under Igbot's goodbye). You have enriched the play of many people on Rodcet and have been a tremendous representative of the cross-server EQ Rogue community here at the Safehouse.
I saved a couple of your sigs, particularly the "Mideon, get yo' ass of the bus!" and "Got Milk?" on my local drive. They just make me smile a lot.
Farewell, Monsieur Sneakypants. You'll be missed.
07-03-00, 07:55 PM
Hitting on YOU? Bah you're all over me woman. About that bus sig, well, even I laughed my ass off when I saw that. So did my real life friends when he came up with the "my nipple hurt" one. Just promise you'll pop in and see me when I hit 50 Wix. Ok? Ego? Nah. It's all about being THAT......DAMN.......GOOD and knowing it. It's ok if you wanna be me.
