There comes an end to all great things, and unfortunately, Yugioh has to be one of them.
Yugioh has brought great things and great times for me, and it should for you too.
I've met many people and made many friends in both the casual and competitive scene, and I'm really glad I've been playing for the past 3.5 years.
I've thought about it for a while now, and I have decided to completely quit Yugioh, and with it, Yugioh blogging.
Personally, I feel that I'm growing a bit too old to be playing Yugioh, and have been toning down my thoughts about the game significantly...
As you might have also realized, my thoughts that go onto the blog have also gone down in quality and quantity.
And I dont like it either.
Looking back, I made some great posts and had great ideas and was pulling upon knowledge from across the world, and this is no more.
As to why exactly I'm quitting, its a mix of reasons.
Time taken up, losing my entire Saturdays, the toll its taking on studies, and a few others.
Obviously it wont be an easy process, and I'll probally relapse some time or another(lol its drugs), but I hope I'll make it out, and put Yugioh in the past, carrying with me the memories it gave me.
You might disagree, but I've decided its something I just gotta do.
I've already dismantled all but one of my decks, and am already planning on giving away most of my cards of value.
Yugioh is a great game.
It has great people, great concepts, great competitions, and a wonderful community.
Blogging has been a great experience over the past 2 and a half years, and I hope the blogging community continues to grow and expand.
By September, I'll have given off or sold off all of my Yugioh related things, keeping only my deck and playmat.(or maybe even giving those away)
So someday in the future, when you see somebody playing Absolute Zero with a custom Stratos Playmat, you'll know I'm back.
So I guess this is goodbye, everybody online. It's been a great run.
Its time to take Only the Duel off your bookmarks list.
Let us meet once again, someday.
Oh, and for those who were fooled for 1.5 years straight, Rauzes=G-Ray=Soliel.
I figured it would be fun to use a different name to post depending on my mood/concept of the post. I actually used different language and grammer for each one of these online personas.
