I’ve decided to move on from The Elder Scrolls Online game in terms on content creation. Meaning, I will still play the game on a casual level, unsubscribed without creating guides past Morrowind.
I will continue to keep the site active and update the builds from the Morrowind launch then no further.
WHY I’m Leaving
For the past year I have not enjoyed the game at all. Maybe brief moments of fun in PvP, but considered running dungeons repeatedly to get a specific weapon ancient game design and lackluster. Same thing with trials, with a tiny community, the vibrant raiding community (PC NA) does not exist creating little incentive for competition.
Once I started my fitness life change, I started to realize, the less I played ESO (not other games), the better my life was. I had time to spend with my son, wife and family. I was more upbeat and positive, more focused on the future and optimistic. When I returned to the game, it felt like a choir similar to washing stinky laundry. The definition of an addiction can be describe as never getting enough of what you don’t want; under that definition, ESO was an addiction.
I’m not calling for you to abandon the game if you love it, continue to enjoy it if you do. It has server its purpose and rewarded me with a wonderful experience but like all things, it has come to an end.
I plan on pre-ordering Destiny 2 as the next major MMO I will be playing and possibly doing content for. In the meantime, I will still complete Morrowind story as I cannot return my pre-order. I’m open to games like Total War, Dark Souls 3, Battlefield, Mass Effect, etc.
IN THE END
I believe we get one life and I’d rather live it day by day doing what I love than not. I found my new passion, bringing gamers and gaming together in a healthy and positive light. I’ve received more heartfelt complements on my lowly viewed gamer to gym rat series than I have my entire time in ESO. That is my calling, that is my future.
As always, thanks for your time and support.
