Well let us give remembrance to the millions of dead digital soldiers who have died fighting for us. We have sent them to die to help expand out empires, defeat rivals, and to make a name for ourselves. But remember him, he who brought that victory, the 1s and 0s that died for your cause.
Do we know of anyone who's died though? I mean, sometimes a player I know will just randomly stop playing, I often wonder what happened to them and hope they just got bored. But I've played a lot of other games and often you start to worry. I guess it must happen a lot. I guess the online world will always kinda be seperate from RL though, and a lot of people perfer it that way...
Yea, back on the Xbox 360 I played with this one guy alm the time and I knew he was a soilder. He told me he was going to be gone for like 6 months and I never saw him online again. Last time I checked was over a year later.
I knew several people (Outside of WL) who are offline since a few months or longer... Often we just chatted before like always, but then... They are just gone. I often think about those people and wonder if actually something happened to them. Did they get bored? Do they deal with RL? Did they die? Are they still alive, but not capable of coming online? (For whatever reason). This kinda makes me sad, and often reminds me of how "safe" we feel nowadays. We often forget that we can still die, and every moment could be your last one, no matter how "safe" you feel.
