The State of Tartaros
So for those who didn’t know, since about August of last year I injured my arms and I’ve had strained muscles ever since. I tried to go to a doctor to correct this problem but it didn’t help that much. At least it helped a BIT but the pain has returned with a vengeance last month. Due to this I can no longer play Tartaros. I am not permanently retiring, but I need to stop as long as necessary because playing puts a lot of stress on the muscles that I injured. This of course includes computer typing as well but typing a few words every few minutes here & there isn’t the same as pressing the same 4 buttons over & over for 1-2 hours at a time. It’s my own fault for sitting on my ass all day and petrifying my muscles but now I need to take care of myself so it doesn’t get to the point where I lose feeling in my arms permanently…as this is irreversible.
Tartaros itself has been going downhill. With the staff nerfing the game left & right and nerfing already weak characters a lot of people are quitting. I can never find public parties anymore (though I’ve pretty much given up on them anyway…). Stuff in the market’s overpriced because they lowered the drop rate out of cash boxes. Events are repetitive or give really crappy items that aren’t worth bothering with. New maps & challenges have become so difficult that you pretty much need a +15 weapon or need to be 5 levels above to be able to do it.
I remember when every channel would be Green or Yellow or even Red…now even on Tartaros day, only maybe ch. 1 and 3 will be green or orange while the rest continue to remain blue. Reading 2ch people are saying all their Nagi using guildmates have even moved to other games. I don’t blame them honestly…after they nerfed Aerlot I am completely demotivated to level him up. Thanks to my arm pain, Tartaros leveling went from being fun to just being a chore. (´･ω･`；)
Anyway I hope the game can improve, I hope that Tartaros can go back to being fun like it was 2 years ago and I hope my arms heal…but until then I’ll be taking a break from this game. This also includes me taking a break from posting macros. Actually this is a permanent decision I have made for this blog. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
