Hey Friendly! I'm looking for some advice here. I had one amazing friend in which we did EVERYTHING together. We leveled our wizards, beat marleybone in one day, used to always farm, pvp, etc. And then suddenly he deletes me. I ask, "why?". Then deletes me once more. Then my friend logged on, said, "hey :D", and he proceeded to delete him as well. For no reason! I'm looking for advice due to the fact that I lost a good friend for practically no reason. I see you've been playing this game a while, so you may have more experience in these things than me.Around my house we have a name for these things when they happen. You sir, just got hit with a jerkstorm. (except sometimes a jerkstorm here also implies people haven't been picking up after themselves . . . I digress)
No, it has nothing to do with this.
It has everything to do with people getting all plankton on ya.
Heh. I guess at least he didn't insult you like that. :-) We'll call it a silent jerkstorm. The surprise jerkstorm. He just poofed out of your life, but sometimes that's almost worse, isn't it? Our imaginations can say more mean words than the evil abandoner ever did. EVIL! ABANDONER! JERKSTORM!
I don't know why people are jerks, but I do know that the Internet allows for a lot of them. It has the power to turn normal people stupid.
I'm not sure what happened, but perhaps they just wanted to experience the game without you always there. On your end of the screen life was wonderful, but on their end of the screen you were always bugging them and they were just being polite, just letting the jerkstorm build until it finally hit. BAM! DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!
Um, or perhaps they wanted to make new friends and had no good way of telling you get lost so they could, so they forced the situation? /shrug
I can try to throw out scenarios like this all day, but really I don't have the full story and neither do you it sounds like (since they didn't clue you in).
Life sucks sometimes, doesn't it? I'm thinking in the end because they didn't offer you an explanation, they never were really emotionally invested in the friendship. Thus, the Internet allows them to do something they wouldn't really do in real life. The best we can hope for is a twinge of guilt.
You got hit with a jerkstorm.
Over time you'll know who your real friends are, anon. Hang in there and try not to take it personally. This is the Internet after all. (He could have been hacked and the hacker deleted you just to be mean while he was hacked? A hacker jerkstorm? /shrug)
Thanks for the question. Hope I didn't leave you with more questions than answers.
