PurpleEmoFale
So, for the first time, I've suffered the full-on FUMBBL-emo-meltdown-fale.

This is something I've observed from afar before. Almost as if watching a wildlife documentary, it's been a funny old experience really, doing it myself. I don’t really know if I’m happy to have joined the club, sad that I’ve reduced myself to it, happy I didn’t throw the full '‘Zomg the rng is broken, I quit’' rant, only to return the next day, whatever really. I’ve seen some of the very best experience the emo fale, and dismissed it as something I’d never do myself. But here I am!

The streak of losses (be they via dice or via myself) and game annoyance at my slide got to the point where the concession mass retire happened, and I sort of became the FUMBBLer that comes out in all of us to one extent or another at times, and I didn't like that. Bit of a moan, bit of non acceptance anything I did contributed to losses, bit of desperate game spamming and ignoring RL weekends, lack of concentration, lack of fun.

So, anyway, in the least emo way possible, I'll be having myself a break (WIL / current scheduled RRR's apart) to recharge my FUMBBL batteries. No idea how long it will be, the plan is that I come back when I don't need to come back if that makes any sense. I'll not be in chat where I can help it, and will keep a low profile.

Keep it real FUMBBL buddies. I hope this was the least mockable 'Zomg I quit' you've seen in a while. Please mock me anyway, naturally!

As they say; they always come back. And this I don't dispute.

Hugs! :)

And take your time, breaks are healthy.
Posted by maysrill on 2010-02-17 20:24:45
I found this reasonable, thoughtful, and insightful.

I rated it 1, since you're doing it wrong.
Posted by PigStar-69 on 2010-02-17 20:26:32

Posted by SvenS on 2010-02-17 20:28:02
lol@maysrill

We'll be here to welcome you back no worries purp!

As Leijonet put it well: "Breaks are healthy!"
Posted by Gritter on 2010-02-17 20:45:47
lol maysrill.

Ive not been in chat much myself but ive seen the warning signs in your game banter for a little while tbh Purp

Recharge (but keep in WIL!) and come back when you dont take the dice seriously again dude, its the best way.
I will look forward to you prolonging my horrible win ratio against you personally mate :) .... once your out of rehab.
Posted by PainState on 2010-02-17 21:31:47
Iam with maysrill...voted a big time 1. It was so bad I allmost wrote a blog on how bad it was.

Cya next week.

Everyone is susceptible to it... just this morning I rage-conceded and retired a perfectly good starting Chaos team because I was in a bad mood. But I came back this afternoon after deciding I should try and be the guy I WANT to play against, rather than the guy I DON'T want to play against. It happens... but I've never blamed the game. Always blame the coach.

Just -14%?

Yoo eez lucky guy!
Posted by Cavetroll on 2010-02-17 22:05:16
Welcome to the club and enjoy your break. The game will be better for you when you do come back. Try not to rage-retire any teams in the mean time :)
Posted by Wilf on 2010-02-18 00:04:43
We loves ya Purp really. Enjoy the time away and have a few jars I say.
Posted by SeraphimRed on 2010-02-18 00:35:45
As one of the ppl I respect most in the game I'm sorry to see you reduced to this.
The more recent times we have played, and the posts you've made, I have noticed a gradual decline in your enthusiasm.

I can only hope you do indeed rekindle your love for FUMBBL - the community needs more folk like you... even if you're a southern trespassing goyt.

voted 1 ofc.

Much respect for seeing the signs and pulling yourself out of the fishbowl.
Posted by avien on 2010-02-18 16:18:22
I belive this is when I refer to PaulHicks: ***Did you know.... that if the worst thing that happens to you is you roll a bunch of 1's and your computer pixels die then you should consider it a damn good day.

And I can add for my own account that I do know this. And why is none of your goddamn business. Peace out =)
Posted by Wotfudboy on 2010-02-18 17:17:10
Gah... sorry to see the posting - First I saw about it was someone mentioning that your OBBA Oval Balls FTW High Elves had retired... I suppose after winning the Premiership they got to finish on a high!

Just make sure you keep Doomed From the Start in WIL going!!

I will miss you greatly in those leagues... and I have to readdress the poor 5/6/7 ratio against you! Hope you come back refreshed and happy!
