Wow.....this came out of nowhere for me.  Hopefully there is a digital download purchase option for this one.  Release date is for this week right?

GT is THE best.

I can't thank everyone here enough.  You have know idea how much this means to me.  I thank you and my family thanks you.  In the short time I get to have in the states I even get to meet some of our fellow GT'ers PeteRock and Knightshade (going to Arizona on the way home)

I downloaded the game yesterday from D2D, and am on Ostermark as "Jefferson" - a warrior priest. So if anyone in the Wanderers can shoot me an invite, I'd appreciate it.

I am a complete noob to the game and know virtually nothing about it, but I have lots of WoW experience. I need someone to hold my hand, Ima-scared! smile



You and I are in the same boat Jeff.    I'm a total noob, haven't read anything about the game other than knowing it was hyped and was getting good feedback, and am a veteran from WoW.     Many of the others have a significant head start on us.   

If I can help you in any way (or help each other) my in-game name is Plainsrunner.

Ok, I'll put our political differences aside for now ... for the good of the ..... whatever side it is we're on in the game! smile

I just re-rolled a Bright Wizard (like him better so far) his name is Lotho. I'll send you a tell.

Finally downloaded/patched up and ready to play.....hmmm I guess I better register with the Wanderers and put up a recruitment post.  Haven't created a toon yet, wanted to do a little research on the classes/races before I do.

My condolences.  My mother went through chemo 3 times, and after the last treatment she told the family she was done.  Her cancer hasn't come back but on some level I can understand her choice to not go through with Chemo again.

My thoughts go with you

I didn't realize that racism = fabulousity...?

RickRock is confused...

It's not racism.  Or at least not intended to be.  Just an ongoing exchange of humor with Kato along with a bit of "sterotypes exist because they're true" thrown in.  No harm intended.  The last time we played online MP with Kato someone expressed concern over whether he would be able to play to his usual level with only one eye and his respone was to not worry because he sees in "widescreen" because of his eyes.  No comments are meant as malicious and no offense was intended.

It's so bright here during the day that everyone has to squint in the sunlight regardless of ethnic background.   icon_wink

On a side note, have you heard of Stuff White People Like?  Yet further proof that stereotypes exist because they are true in at least some way.

In all seriousness, folks (ta-dum-dum) - I'm so glad you are at least getting a chance to go home for a bit of a respite. IMO, any injury that causes a near-death experience should come with a free ticket home!  Unless, of course, the injured one is crazy gung ho to go back... oh, um, yeah, I guess that'd be you! Geeze Louise, at least enjoy yourself as much as you can between deployments!   nod

Have you called the airline to tell them the story?  Most airline will work with active military personnel and give you a discount.  From what I can see right now, it looks like American Airlines ($763) or United Airlines ($811) will give you the best price...but I would call the major airline (AA, UA, Delta) to see what they can do for you.

Yeah I'll be calling the Airlines tomorrow, people here at the base tell me I can get at least....maybe 10% off which is not bad at all.  I may not get it due to the fact that I'm actually all healed up and I'm not taking emergency leave (convalescent leave).

It seems to this reader that you've done your duty.
And they call me "misguided"...

No, they won't change their minds and that's fine with me.  I've had some conversations with some other forum members here (via teamspeak, xbox live) about how many times I would've walked away to another job.  It may sound arrogant or maybe even egotistical but I can't bring myself to leave my unit or have someone else in charge looking after my knuckleheads.  I've been with them for so long and trained them so therefore I feel 100% responsible for them. 

I don't do anything special, it doesn't take a genius to do what I do, and I don't make any real money doing it.  The only real thing I have a problem doing right now is getting orders to clear a neighborhood of enemies that maybe 50% of them are noncombatants.

Today I got the thumbs up for being in good enough shape to go home for a little while in October.  Hopefully it won't cost an arm and a leg to get an affordable plane ticket home. 
(If I had more time I would go space "A" on the flight, but I really have only a limited amount of time for leave)

Thats where the community has offered to help. We have been talking about how to handle the donations and we can't think of a better way to use it then to help pay your way home.

I really don't know what to say.....

I just feel so fortunate to be part of a community that would go above and beyond for someone like me.  Going home is going to be great, and while I'm back in California I will be getting lasik surgery for my eye as well. 

My wife and parents will be glad to see my ugly mug before I deploy again.  I'm trying to nail down a flight date via Delta Air lines from Frankfurt to San Jose, CA (only 1 stopover in Salt Lake)

Update:

On September 18 I will have reached my 14th year in the military and I'm at the crossroads for deciding my future.  Mid-life crisis aside, I already put in a in-service transfer from the Marines to the Army as a combat medic.  If that doesn't go through, I guess it will be infantry all the way to the end.  Hopefully this week I will have a date on when I can return to the states for 10 days of leave.  After the little vacation, I have orders to rejoin my unit to Iraq for 5 more months and then immediately be redeployed back to Afghanistan. 

Healing has gone really well, and I'm close to 100%.  I have a stress test/Physical Fitness test this week to ensure I can be discharged from the Hospital.  As I look at my pathetic looking scar on my arm, I still can't believe that a wound that tiny almost killed me. 

Hope to see you guys stateside when I get there....Semper Fi.

Perhaps a 7:30pm start time (Pacific).  I'll probably shoot pool with my old boss after work, but he usually has to head home to the missus by 6:30 or 6:45, so I should be home and ready to play by 7:30.

So no extra training/time off from the field because of my eye.  "They" said that I'm ready to deploy as long as my eyes meet these requirements:

(1) Color discrimination of red/green

(2) Correctable vision of 20/20 in one eye; 20/100 in other eye.

Yeah I told them my shooting eye is not 20/20 anymore, and powers that be said, "Time to go southpaw Son."

Shooting left handed is terrible,..... ejected shell casings (hot) always hitting the shooter's head.

D'oh! Does this mean your redeployment will be reconsidered, seeing that you'll need retraining and all?

+1.  Would they send you into battle not being able to shoot?

SRSLY?!

Do they teach to shoot off handed in training?  Even if they do if your vision is less then stellar how in the heck do they expect you to hit anything?

Off handed one eye not working.  Maybe they should pop your eardrums too so you can better be in tune with the force...

There is a rifle range (battle zero) in Iraq so I can practice there.  Since I'm not a jedi I'll just noob-tube it until I get better.  Or grab/steal a nice shotgun from the Army.
