Farewell Address.

Good morning everyone(US) good day(all) I wanted to come here and say goodbye to all the awesome people I’ve met over the last 3.5 years. As many of you may know me from in game challenges, wars, to Facebook pages, to this forum itself, to arguments and debates, banter and friendship.

Over the years I’ve seen this game develop and grow and the people with it, there have been good times and bad alike. For most of us this game is an escape from real life’s challenges, struggles, and frustrations. With that being said over time you invest and practice and pushing to your absolute limit you get better and improve your gameplay, like any other game you may have picked up in life. As a child I remember popping in my first Nintendo game. Super Mario 3 I was maybe 7 or 8? Lol I would play that thing over and over again trying to beat it and for that reason became obsessed with it. Eventually I did beat it with practice and learning from my cousin how to improve.

Fast Forward to this current update and you have additions to the game that I cannot sit by and stomach for months to come etc and watch as gameplay and hours of trying to accomplish a feat in game be destroyed by multi use overpowered weapons that cheapen the difficulty of challenge/distance/GW to the point where you can just buy a “grenade” or medkit and run around waiting to heal etc. I’ve struggled in my mind to understand it and accept it, asking myself could this work? Will it be good for me? Will it be good for the community? Etc

After a lot of wrestling with it in my mind I’ve come to the conclusion that my time is way to valuable to invest in something that provides me no GRATIFICATION. I know to some this message probably means nothing and that is ok, I don’t look for pity or for sympathy. This message is to all the people I’ve come in contact with, to all the guild mates, to my FRIENDS from NML on Line app and FB this message is to you all. I will miss you guys playing at the maximum levels, teaching, learning, caring. To the guilds to which I played with for a long period of time Army of Slayers and Mavericks, I’m proud to have met such amazing people from all over the world.

Finally to the NML community, I don’t want this to be sad or discouraging. I want it to be uplifting and to invoke change that is good for all of us, perhaps one day I’ll be back but until then.....may you all be in good health, happy, and above all else

Stay safe out there survivor.....

    I see where you are coming from bam. I just started getting really good past 3 months and now this. I will see how it plays out. Some changes mentioned by players seem to be good ways to make grenades and medkits not so crazy. I personally think using 1 per gw battle would be great. I recognize that name bam. Hey you might get an itch and want to give it a try again. I know many people including myself have done that.

    @rogueDS its like I told my friend @Pic ill never say forever but as it stands right now I don’t feel like this change will give me a sense of accomplishment, again I’m not knocking anyone who may like it and more power to them if they enjoy it. Who knows what the future holds but for now I’m going to take a back seat and relax a bit and see how it unfolds.

    All the best dude. I'm sad that I never got to play a challenge or a GW battle with you but completely get where you are coming from. For someone who prides themselves on becoming the best of the best in GW or the challenge this new update is a slap in the face and I bet you will be the first of many.

    Enjoy your new found freedom! Or at least once the lockdown is lifted :lol:

    @Fluxxx can we see a Golden Lucille and Bloody Lucille with Wide Arc in the Bundle store soon?

    No reason... Just think they would look pretty.

    ;-)

    @xbamfx don't go far!!

    @xbamfx

    Take some time off and relax for a few weeks or months and come back. Retire, then come back and retire again, and just come back for shits and giggles like me. It’s very fun. Bust in with the BamfBlitz. I stepped away for 6 months back in 2018. Not really playing right now till Tuesday when I play this GW. That’s all I’m doing is GW Tuesday and Wednesday and then chilling till the next war.

    Hasn’t changed the way I’ve played even once.

    If it is such a “super serious, game changing, earth shattering.. I’m gonna leave” thing.. where can I buy a grenade with my fat stacks right now if I choose to do so?

    When you run out, it's 70 gold to keep using them. So if you got endless Whale gold, you never actually run out.

    So help me understand my disconnect. If people with 4-5 pinks (I.e. significant p2p players) are having issues with this, they were buying kills (and heals and gas) before anyways, but this somehow crosses the line.

    My dude do you seriously not understand 2x grenades can kill a tank with 1.2 million HP?

    Then again you’ve probably never played at those levels and know what it’s like to beat them, a 4-5 pink rick or HD doesn’t mean anything if you don’t know how to play with it properly.

    It has always been about the chase for super aggro/hyper competitive players. If the challenge is infinite levels and players are grinding their lives away to compete it becomes a problem. And there is no point for the 1% to continue playing in a non competitive arena (speaking for myself) I tried to hang on and play casually but most competitive players aren't wired this way so I lost interest and quit about 8 months ago.

    That's my opinion, others might disagree with the statement.

    The irony of people with mega pink star perfectly rerolled heroes with all bought weapons complaining about p2p taking away skill bemuses me to no end. And somehow grenades cross that line..

    That said, I look forward to be proven wrong, I'm wrong every day and this one I am sure is no different. Someone grab Dumpster Glenn, Hunter Maggie and Ezekiel and run through some level 50 master missions (too easy, get to nightmare mode) with those pocket nukes and mega healing doodads and post some youtube videos. TIA.

    I prefer to not use anything in mission that I didn't bring with me, that makes the game fun for me, so I will refrain from using them. I just ignore the icon. Apparently that is too great of a thing to avoid as well.

    And this model has never deviated and adopted a fresh set of development eyes. That is a good analogy. It should be pay for faster progression, not pay to win. The bar should be the same when every player is max level. All of the add ons ruin the end game experience because of the many points you so eloquently stated. 🤫

    Many games follow this formula of faster progression though they do have some p2p only things but not always creating as large of a competitive advantage
