The curse of Might/GG/Tyranny/Bacardi (choose any I missed) cast on Lothar oh so long ago claims another victim... Well 3. If you were to ask me if I would transfer off this server 4-5 months ago I would tell you like I told hundreds of others over the years that I would not. How quickly can circumstances change what we thought were foundations in our mindset. So comes the day I thought would never come, if all goes according to plan next week Me, Dude, and Oak (Broflex) will be transferring off of Lothar. Unwilling to do like so many others and simply transfer to alliance; (Traitors!) we have opted to find a new home. To try and revitalize the fun/community/activity spark that we used to have for WoW.
It's unfortunate how far Lothar has fallen from grace of the glory days of Vanilla in which I rerolled on this server for back before BC. Ever since then it has become like a knife wound that remained untended slowly draining the life from the host. More and more the Horde community has witnessed mass exodus of raiding guilds, server transfers, faction transfers, deleting of characters, or simply quitting wow rather than watch the server they started on (or chose) die. Even after WotLK I tried to deny it more and more and keep the horde community together with server events, achievement runs, GDKPs, World races, Dbs Trivia, etc.. But as time went on it become more and more clearer. This server is dying/dead and what is left is barely staying afloat.
Even after realizing that I was ok with that. Even if Lothar was dead I was content to stay on this server as long as I had my friends who I had raided/played this game with for over 2-4 years now. But such a tight group of friends who stayed together that long couldn't survive losing 1-2 of those people and eventually fell apart early this expansion. Attendance, Real life troubles, Surgeries etc. broke the last tie that held me to Lothar. After coming back from a forced break of 2-3 months and realizing that; I was inches away from even ******* my account, thankfully/unfortunately that did not happen. That's when 2 of my longest friends on here who felt the same way as me decided if we didn't do something we would simply quit Wow without trying. And thus here we are.
Even now as I'm (a little drunk and) sitting here, it still feels weird that I actually cared for this server so much. But 7 years of a place you called home (even if it was for an Avatar) and leaving it behind can make you remember all you've done and spent in one place. I rerolled my hunter on Lothar after a year on Lightbringer in Vanilla. I saw Lothar at its greatest when guilds challenged the World rankings, world pvp was abound, and the drama and laughs even more. Back when the community was thriving and looked unstoppable and the lag unbearable. My how the king has fallen. So many guilds I have been in and so many people I have met/fought/raided/argued/laughed with on this server. From Acid trip to Ravage, from Uprising to Hallu, from Ender to Tyranny, from Slackers to Claw, from Judgement to Premade, From the amazing days of Octavarium to my longest home of Tornado of Souls, and especially Cosby Sweaters a guild of friends.
But yea even this is getting to long for a drunk typer to read. But yea sad to leave and excited to see what waits. We're heading for Zul'jin for those that are interested I have my name Jostin reserved and will be my name either that or Knife (don't ask), and if you wish to remain in contact with me my battletag is Jostin#1136 just let me know who you are in the message. Wanted to leave my mark on this server if only to have it recorded that I was here in the forums. Sorry it was long and dribbled on. Lothar is a place I'll always remember for whether that's good or bad lol. Thanks for the memories and all the good times, I pray we see something finally patch this server up and revitalize it that we may come back to it. But till then. In the words of DB "keep !@#$y"
TL:DR; Transferring, Got drunk, got nostalgic, wanted to say goodbye to and old friend like a real nerd. If you don't know me or care about this servers past move on.

S****d account; he left for navy; Got my own account after finally getting a job after high school; Got to lvl 50 then and even restarted again after was able to delete toon on his account to get the name again, ball busting adverted
And I boned Miranda Kerr last night.
Good luck, farewell and all the other good bye sayings. I remember participating in a few of your GDKPs on my troll hunter fookame back in the day and even participated in a few chieve runs before I stopped playing horde all together. You're a cool dude and hopefully you 3 find a server capable of holding your interest and excitement in WoW afloat. A suggestion for you though.. Maybe keep a lowbie on Lothar, that way you can still stay in touch and keep an eye on the servers overall well being(some of us older players such as yourself hold onto hopes that itll make a comeback :P).
Good luck again,
