Win or loose, a number of our core members have been on the fence for a while. I don't know about you but when one plays a game like this for 2 years (starting from day one) and the end seems to be so far off in the horizon, it's only a matter of time until you feel jaded. The main reason why our core group is still in tact is our friendship, nothing else. If it weren't for our friends, a lot of us would have quit by now as so many have over the years.. I can't understand why this is so hard to digest. Win or loose, our friendships will outlast it all. The point is, does the game determine our friendships or merely a task which we undertake out of obligation not wanting to let our friends down? Whichever way it is, I've made my stance clear. I'm going to keep my account alive for as long as it takes. Whether my friends quit or not, I know that I'll be in touch with them and that they will continue to be part of my life outside TW. Victory isn't going to come easy for any tribe on W33.
