I’ve been playing Elvenar for a long time - it’s actually the first video game I have ever played! I have spent most of the several years in the same fellowship and have been a very active and supportive member. That is, until three weeks ago when my work life went into hyperdrive and my personal life fell apart, in part because of all the overtime I was pulling. I know I should have changed my city name to indicate I would be out for a bit when I logged in at the end of the holidays, but I didn’t realize that things were not going to improve. I finally got back on the game after 2.5 or 3 weeks, only to find out I’ve been kicked out of my fellowship. I know it’s silly, but I’m feeling hurt. I’ve been a core member for YEARS, it just really sucks to be removed without any inquiry or anything (just a message that I was removed, no messages asking if I am ok or where I’ve been). It’s just a game, I know, but it feels crappy to have spent several years playing alongside folks, chatting about life, providing advice and support, only to be dumped after a couple weeks of silence.
