This will only make sense to those who play World of Warcraft, so if you don't, don't be suprised if you don't understand the lingo.
I've been in a guild full of wonderful people that I've formed friendships with for months. I was real ID friends with several people, including the GM. I just got done having a conversation with him... I told him I'm server transfering. Not guild transfering, but leaving the server altogether. I did this because the guild was missing raid nights, because I constantly got yelled at, but mainly because the game had grown dull and I just wanted a fresh start. And, here's the best part: because I loved the guild so much and couldnt bear to leave them, I offered to leave my other 85 in the guild if they needed me. Because they always did, and I wanted to help. I also *tried* to give him a 1-week notice, and even said that I would come back someday. He told me that I'm dead to him, removed me from real ID, and kicked me from the guild. A friendship broken in 15 minutes.
Anyway, I'm going through with the transfer as I speak. Nothing else to do now... I could use a hug.
