Over the past few weeks I have seen many people announcing that they are leaving the game. Now it is my turn. I am leaving Marvel Avengers Alliance for some of the same reasons that other people have lefts, but also for some personal reasons.
I have enjoyed playing MAA for the time I have, except for the last few months. During that time, it felt more like a chore than anything and while the battles were fun it seemed kind of boring. At the same time, it also began to seem like a normal part of my routine till it got to the point where I could not go a day without playing it. I would think about the game constantly and wonder when I could play it next. So I am leaving the game.
So here is short are the reasons why I am leaving.
1. I Am Addicted: I have gotten to the point where I recognize that I am addicted to MAA. I felt a strong attachment to the game to the point where it felt like a part of me and that when it ended a part of me would end. I have thought about this attachment and I now revcognize that I am addicted to the game in an unhealthy way. So I am leaving to end that addiction.
2. It is a Chore: The game used to be fun, but it is more of a chore now. Games should be fun and when it becomes a chore like it did for me, you need some time away. And so I am leaving, because I have more to do with my life than play this game.
It was fun while it lasted for me, but now it is time to move on. Eventually the game will end and I don't want to look back and see how much time I spent and realize how much I could have done.
A final note though, I want to say thanks to both PKB and Xobai. Both of you guys were very helpful while I played the game and helped me become a better player. Thanks for all the help you guys gave even when you got nothing back for it.
It's been fun, but it is time to go. In the words of Stan Lee "'Excelsior"'
