Well, we dropped everything, stopped spending time with our families so that, HEAVEN FORBID, you guys don't have to go ONE WHOLE DAY without a TRAINER. For a VIDEO GAME. Just one more day I don't get to spend with my 5 year old daughter.
Appreciate the effort n all I had decided to put ds2 to one side in favour of other games which didn't require 2 or 3 hours catchup on the quests b4 getting immersion cause working/hunting n gathering - whatever you want to call it, in yer complaint, caliber, is relentless and doesn't permit dedication to any non-earning past-time.
That said ,I reckon you were a bit hard on the kids in here, your customers, Caliber. I'm amazed at the amount of forelock tuggin they give you as it is.
You have chosen trainer making as your occupation & its a bit rich to pull up these kids for their 'gimme gimme I wanna play it now' act when that is what you cultivated to put food on your table.
I regret that during the first years of my eldest child's life I was in absentia, but I also recognise that was a choice I made & I don't blame others for that.
As for my eldest daughter? She occasionally plays the 'where were you Dad?' card if she thinks I need to be 'remoulded to better suit her, but if it came down to it I reckon she would pick Dad not being available for her early years ahead of a life of want.
She's studying at a university on the other side of the planet yet she frequently comes to visit - willingly, I should add, ahead of spending time with her friends - even now that she is paying her own way.
Having that now, more than makes up for absenses beyond the control of either of us when she was a bairn.
