10,000 games and goodbye

Post by plane crazy » Mon Aug 05, 2019 11:37 am

Every Monday I open Lux on-line to play a game and I wonder if it will still be up. With so few players left, it is harder than ever to find humans to play with on the tracker.

I have 13 more games to play to hit 10,000. This December will be my 10 year anniversary of my first ever on-line game, right here at Sillysoft central.
All good things come to an end. Entropy is inevitable and has taken it’s toll on this gaming community. This glitchy old game has lost it’s soul as the pool of players shrinks over time, and I will just be the latest to leave as I retire after my 10,000th game.

So I say a heartfelt and sincere ”thank you” to all my on-line Lux friends all over the World. Thank you Dustin, the tireless mods, and even the asshats. A wild hoard of competitive rascals as ever assembled. Join me on the tracker over the next month or so as I finish my last 13 games of my career here in Luxville.

Cheers,

H. Glen Merritt

Oops. You are already past retirement. Remember the "games played" counter has been broken for years.

You have actually played 10,869 games -- that is 10,869 recorded games. There was also a period of time where no games were ever recorded. You are likely quite a bit past 10,869.

So, you are past due on retirement. :smt017

Best wishes, Plane!!

Hate to see you go.

I think the game still will be arround for atleast another few years.
If or when Dustin will stop hosting rooms im sure some other players will step up.

Thank you for the games and being a gentleman in this warzone.

RM, damn, you are a buzzkill. Well....we may have had our differences over the years but I still admire your game play and know that under your coarse, ichy robes your heart is in the right place.

pjb, thank you for your service and good luck moving this community forward.

Magpie, thank you and may your armies flourish.

Hi PlaneCrazy,

10K games are awesome (https://sillysoft.net/lux/rankings/most ... lltime.php)!

You have been a great member of the Lux Community. It was always a pleasure to meet you "on the battlefield" as well as in chat.
Sad to see you leave, but feel free to return whenever you have the feeling or drop in from time to time. You are always welcomed.

Thank you for 10K games. I personally wish you all the best and I hope to get in some of your last games before you fulfill the "10.000 games and goodbye" …
You can always keep contact via pm.

welcome to the 10k club, pc! /me wubs me some round numbers (and some plane crazy) :smt049

you were always one of the good ones, plane, and the community is significantly weaker with your departure. even though you are hanging up the spurs as a player, i hope you pop in from time to time (like yours truly) just to shoot the breeze and such.

continued best wishes as you fly off following the sunset (cliffs) . . .

/me buys plane a tall cold one . . . :beers

and a hodad's double bacon cheeseburger (with extra bacon . . . of course!) :bacon

kind regards,

m

By the way: I hope you mean "10,000 FullHouse games and goodbye" :-) You are not allowed to "goodbye" earlier ;-)

He, he. Don't you mean odd numbers? Your 10K is actually 11545! :smt077 :panic: :D

Still love you, though, mnemo!

And, no, paranoiarodeo did not tell me that. Sheesh, some people look for ghosts everywhere.

Hi plane,

Sad to see you go, but in the end we all need to go sometime. Time goes fast and 10.000 games have been played in a blink of an eye. You were always cool to play with. Always stayed zen and never started flipping. I will miss you on the board. Enjoy life and lots of success to you and yours.

Keep flying high

Thank you one last ime for the memories. I sadly won't reach my 10,000 game goal because the map I enjoyed all these years is a nasty word here in Luxville and now unwelcome. Time to go.

Cheers,

Glen
