Community Resources: Things that are going on in the guilds, current contests and events, ect… will be put here.


Hello, Leohan here.
I am writing in the public space about the long absence of the website being updated, guild leadership or projects moving forward. I feel with 3 weeks away from the community going on 4 now, this needs to be said for members and the casual readers who like to come to the site for information.

2 weeks ago I wrote a personal update on my account about why I was away for more than 7 days. After that message I managed to log in about 3 times, after that I stopped. Here’s that message.

Leohan posted an update 2 weeks, 2 days ago

Hello, will be posting a front page article to explain my more than a week (7 days) absence. I know we planning a lot off stuff and things depend on me to push projects forward. As well as in game (GW2) certain events (Guild Missions & Parties).

I once again got very sick. I mean, ill. The kind of illness were you go to the hospital to make sure your still going to be around. I get these sometimes and I try not to let it effect what I do. Was even pushing through the last week of September trying to not let it get to me. However it got to the point where I could no longer let light into my left eye. For the past 6 days I have been lying in my bedroom in a pitch black room only to come out at night to eat. It is very hard to prepare food and eat in the dark.

Want to keep this short, but I am here. I am alive and some what well. Will not let any illness, no mater how weak my body gets to bring me to stop what we all have, right here.
We all were working very hard on preparing projects and having fun in game. Hope to all see ya soon and will be logging into GW2 today.

First off I love Guild Wars and I love the community around me that makes the time spent 100% more fun.
So why did I not take care of my responsibilities for the community after the fact?

The time around August I broke my foot and was in an air cast for 3 weeks. The first week I was unable to walk and therefore did not go to work. The next 2 weeks was unable to do my job 100% that was required of me. This of course does not go over well with the boss. Even my I.T. Super/Manager was not happy because I was the only I.T.  Assistant under him (It’s a small company).  The following month of September was double the work load and trying to smooth things out to proof I am still valuable, even though limping around.

Now near the last week of September my left eye started to really hurt (see above quote). This took me out once again. After my  exile from the world in the first week of October to let my eye heal and clear up my sinus infection, all the while wanting to take a spoon to my eye for a brief moment of relieve.  It was not fun, but all was good eventually.

Until I was greeted back at work with animosity and distrust.  I was let go from my place of employment due to my frequent absences. I had/have no health insurance with the company or personal. So paying out of pocket for my health bills with the job I thought, I still had was not such a big deal. Now fear and hate started to set in.

Now with a cocktail of 3 months of no real exercise, a broken body and wondering about eating in the future.
Needless to say, I fell into a depression  not wanting to deal with anything. Staying longer and longer away from the community, the day after the next, drove my anxiety even further.  Knowing I needed to be there, as each passes by wanting to be there for the community.

“Well I’ll just log in tomorrow, yeah tomorrow.”
This mindset set into me everyday for the past 2 weeks.

I am writing this now and posting this for everyone to see, to let you know. I am tired of feeling sorry for myself and ready to be here for the community again.  Now with the added bonus of not having to go to “real” work  for 8 hours a day.

There is a lot to be done.  Will catch up on/ back log, messaging everyone back and moving everything forward.

I am here.
