I’ll be upfront and say that lately, I haven’t been enjoying Minecraft as much as I have had in the past. While the addition of the update provides me with a great amount of well-needed variety, it simply isn’t enough for me to remain content with the game. After I had gotten Diver X, I planned to get Hype Train X as my final X and then said my goodbyes. However, not all hope is lost yet, there’s a few reasons why I want to leave and a few reasons why I’m hesitating. First off, we’ll start with why I want to quit: There is a frequent amount of togglers and closet cheaters in Blitz, which forces one to have to sweat to the point the fun is taken out of the game. The second option is to download a client and cheat against the cheaters, though all that does is simply worsen the situation. As if cheaters aren’t enough to alienate me from the game, there is a great deal of poor sportsmanship and toxicity among the community, with people being so quick to hackusate and hate each other. It makes it kind of hard to enjoy myself when two of my friends despise each other, and even harder when I see someone’s personal problems, whether it be mine or others; is used to attack someone. It’s these two reasons that are greatly affecting the player base of the game, and nobody is self-aware enough to act against it, with the exception of a few Helpers that’ll take action against this corrosive behavior. However, there is also a great deal of reasons that I desire to continue playing the game, and some of it might seem pathetic, and I am completely aware of that, so here goes: I don’t exactly have a great deal of friends in the real world due to severe emotional scarring, trust issues, and social anxiety. However, the community was very accepting of me and for whatever reason, I made friends so easily and quickly became well known in the community. It was the first time I felt like I had a lot of friends, and although it may come across as arrogant, the first time I felt like I was popular. If I left Blitz, I’d be abandoning my friends and condemning myself back to a life of crippling loneliness. Teams with friends is the only time I’m able to laugh and smile. I apologize for lying to you all through my happy facade. Although many of you saw right through it, I suffer minor depression due to my dwindling faith in humanity as the quality of life in the United States continues to decline given who we allow to run for political power. Playing with friends helps me get my mind off that and reminds me that despite everything, there’s still good people in this world. Minecraft is unfortunately the only video game I have even remote competence in, although even then am I horrible at the game, and I’ll openly admit that. I frequently have trouble finding things I’m good at, and often struggle to find something. However, with top players willing to support me, mentor me, and give me encouragement when I beat them, it seriously keeps me going and reminds me that maybe I do have a bit of talent and potential. A massive shoutout to those who helped me through my journey, you know who you are. I’ve still been on the fence as to whether or not I should go, but I know there’s a great deal of people who would love to see me go, and among them, a few people who would grieve my disappearance, and those people know specifically that I’ll keep in touch with them. I apologize for making this thread so long, but I appreciate you taking the time to read out how I feel.
