3 days after shutdown

This is the place for Chillin', kicking back and relaxing. General chat from WKC. Play nice.
3 days after shutdown
June 21st, 2013, 7:53 am

.... and it still feels weird not to be planning on wkc in the evening, especially with today being Friday and all. It became a ritual to throw down some beers on a Friday night and go goof off on wkc...


The plan to occupy my time between now and FF14 is to replay FF13 and 13-2, this time picking up the platinums for both. This will take the full time I'm sure, given that the saves for both were lost when the ps3 died and fresh starts are required.

I own FFXIII and XIII-2. I've never played them fully but always wanted to. Maybe we can play and chat :p

sounds like a plan to me. I'm not sure what my pace of play will be, I'll start up 13 either tonight or tomorrow evening (more likely) and work from there. There will be periodic breaks given summer plans, mainly on weekends.

Only 3 days yet it feels longer. Prob because I had a very bad week and it was a nice game to unwind in lol. The game was just a glorified chat room to me at that point. I had no goals or desire to really quest.
I think I mainly miss the familarity of it. I knew how to play well and knew where everything was. However, being stuck in place really kills the fun of things. Just made me wish I was playing a different game with them, one not stuck in stagnation.

Have you started up? I started up on 13 Friday evening and kinda played a lot over the weekend. It sure is nice playing a game with a real story again.

I went through all that on the day of the announcement and the couple days that followed... but I came to acceptance and moved on. That's what helps... just grab another game and move on. For me it was Dragon's Dogma, played that full time while just playing wkc every 3rd day up until its final week. Now revisiting FF13 and 13-2 will pass the summer before our next time sink.

ive officially moved to Tyria (Guild Wars 2) full time lol. poor ps3 must think im ignoring it for some reason XD i liked playing ff13 and 13-2 but they were kinda limited in exploration and options on what to do :/ ff10 had the best story imo (HD re-release soon WHOOPP!!) and plenty of side objectives to keep me occupied. collecting everything was both a pain and also a nice sense of acomlishment, only to be destroyed when you tried tackling penance XD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVYjVrEgCkA (that fight almost drove me to tears and several new controlers at some points lol)

@ Bertha: For me, moving on isn't that simple, i was there since the beginning, to lose something i was a part of for so long, is like losing part of myself... :goner:

I was there from day 1 to day 645... if I subtract out an estimated 100 days where I wasn't able to play, 2300 hrs of playtime averages out to a little over 4 hrs a day. In other words, 1/6 of my daily life was WKC. Every day while at work I'd be thinking about playing WKC in the evening. I would consider WKC time when making various plans. There were quite a few nights I had dreams of WKC even (and some of those were a real trip). You can say I was quite the addict. Then the news of shutdown came and yeah it hit me hard, but after a couple days it was time to look forward as being all bent out of shape was proving nothing.

I don't have problems letting the game itself go, I accomplished all I wanted to and made the game my (female dog). Friendships made along the way (be it just game or real life) will persist, and that's what matters. A game interface isn't needed for those.

I understand, Bertha. I didn't begin playing until later in WKC1 but Kos played it from the start so I knew the story and was familiar with a lot of the people he quested with. I was there at the start of WKC2 (though the first couple of weeks I was completing my WKC1 avi and having my 1st back surgery :goner: ). However with the exception of when my health kept me away, I was there and when I couldn't be it was still on my mind (and usually on in the same room since Kos was online).

I also had dreams and yep, they were a trip. haha I would think of people in the game and be concerned if I knew stuff was going on. It is funny how things happen like that.

The game may be over but the best bits remain.

Never do the MATH!!! WKC did become an ingrained part of our lives for a long while - especially if you played WKCIE before 2 came out.

lol

You're 100% correct, the friendships are what endure, they are the lasting legacy of WKC, and always will be. I have made many friends through the game, and will do everything I can to keep them.
