I was playing EL, but I doubt that afk-toad-harving counts as actively playing. :D

I permanently quit EL some time ago. I'm permanently post restricted on the EL forums. My char isn't actually locked but since my hobbies include calling radu a retard it probably would get banned if i were to log in. Guess I'll just pick banned option. :P

I was active daily in EL until (and including) Saturday when I heard of OL.  Switched over and I love the whole concept of OL.  I'm happy that someone has taken the time to address the serious shortcomings with EL and launch this great experiment.  My feelings are that it will succeed and surpass its origins.

More AFK than AFK?

I don't even use EL as an chat window any more. For the last few years I've been lurking in IRC chatting to guildies via our EL<->IRC bridge.

I think I've logged in to EL probably 6 times in the last 3 years?

I got very much over the grind and preferred to contribute to improving the game (Client Dev, Encyc, Trinitybot etc) until I got busy in RL and my involvement dropped back to just being occasional updates to Trin.

As per Korrode, i'm permanently post blocked on the el forums, but with added distinction of being profile locked, pm locked and event calendar locked. For some completely unknown reason, they've even gone to the trouble of adding the word 'troll' underneath my forum avatar. Not sure of my current in-game status, at last check it was booted by Burn.

My hobbies are not dissimilar to Korrode's, except that I prey on a far wider range of species. Fair to say we're both banned for similarly outrageous and heinous crimes, in my case suggesting fishing might be a wonderful new addition to the game. Clearly neither of us are likely to get unbanned during this lifetime or the next.

Well I've been banned a lot of times lately for greeting burn, but I wasn't actively playing before I commited that utterly wicked crime. They also can't seem to keep me banned for more than a few seconds at a time, but oh well, guess technically I am banned.

I am no longer playing Eternal Lands.

I quit after 7 or 8 years playing as I needed a change of pace. The direction EL took was not for me. I do not like large group activities, I found PVE to be un-challanging and repetitive.

I found the game became very boring, as most people were busy doing daily quests or begging for invances. Still I appreciate everything Radu and Roja have created. I just got the 7 year itch for a change.

After some help on chan 1, i come to conclusion of "previously" played.

I've played actively, I've been banned several times, I've not played in couple yrs. Etc = above

I think there's more who fit into "banned" than are voting that way.

I didn't mean you.
One example: somebody was banned and snuck back in, so "actively playing" but not supposed to be :P
That sort of thing.
And I wouldn't have counted a forum restriction as banned from the game but whatever. :rolleyes:

Funny thread. ;)
