Commanders and friends that I have made here. I am thinking the time might be right for me to throw in the ED towel. Over the previous months I have had a few short notice stays in hospital, but thats not really the problem. The problem is my condition is making it difficult to control my fingers, in particular on my right hand. Mostly not a problem but a very big problem when quick reactions are required, as is often the case in many instances in ED.
I Joined ED when it was in Beta, and as of the time or writing am still not Elite at all three, not that I am bothered about that, but as you will see, despite the length of time and my eagerness to play the game. I keep having long periods out of the game. When I come back, even if its only been a month, you are seriously 'ring rusty', not to mention very frustrating. My life is too short to keep being frustrated even if I have another 30 years to go.
I keep coming back to ED, devoting time to it, making some progress and then have to stop. But there are other games I enjoy, albeit not to the same extent as ED. I have no problem driving my truck in Euro Truck Simulator. I am enjoying Eleven Tennis in VR, you don't use your fingers you swing your arm and flip your wrist. I am thinking that I should devote my time to the games that I have no problem playing and not keep devoting time to a game that is now proving to be out of my reach.
I am not being negative as I write this, I am a very positive guy. If not playing ED is the worse thing I will have to deal with then hey its not so bad, but yes I think the time has come when I have to cherry pick what games I play to fit my condition. I know that being part of Mobius in no way obligates you to support oom, but I do feel bad that I am very lacking in this department over the last 3 months. I am thinking I would like to stay on the forum, but not sure thats appropriate when I no longer play the game.
I am writing this mostly for the commanders I have come to know here, and more so the friends I have made. I could have simply made a silent withdrawal but thats not something I could do. I really did want to write this post and say thank you for putting up with my friendly fire
