It's sad that this is what my time as a challenger has come to...

Well, I did kind of already talk about it in the thread I made a week and a half ago, but I decided after some heavy thought that it was time for me to bid farewell. Some of you may not know what I'm talking about, but...here.

Yeah, I get that most understood what I did at the end of my Black 2 (and why I did it, for that matter), and some have said that I should just not care what others think, but it's not just that. I'm also sick of things like massacres, grinding, letting things get depressing, among many others. Initially I thought I could overcome it and get some more fun things this year, some of which I was excited for, but after how much I was drained from the former challenge after how I just threw it, I decided, who am I kidding, I can't do this anymore.

It's sad, because after I recovered my stuff from the robbery back in October, I felt more alive than I had felt in a long time. I was so ready to extend far beyond the Nuzlocking best I had previously. I was so excited to finish the challenge, and have even more cool stuff due this year. But then the awful Victory Road disaster came about, and from there I just didn't even care anymore. And with the challenge being declared illegitimate by the head of the forum (even after that one suggested I should keep posting it for my own enjoyment), it made me feel like everything awful was for nothing. I won't say the whole thing was, but I'm more upset about how everything just fell apart and how I feel like it was all my fault. It went from being my favorite Nuzlocke ever to causing B2W2 to no longer be my favorite games. That's a shocking drop in quality if I've ever seen one.

I don't know how many of you here read the challenge threads that I had on Azurilland, and if you do, please know that this pains me far more than it does any of you. I'm sorry to let such a fun time end on such a tragic downer note. I'm still gonna get Sun and Moon, of course, and I'm not going to stop being a fan of this franchise, but I feel even worse about how my time doing documented Nuzlockes has ended so tragically. But I'd rather keep my sanity intact and focus on myself, and get what a video game is trying to offer.

    It's a shame to see your two ongoing challenges ended abruptly, but I could imagine how mad you would have gotten if you had a bad loss again. I guess this means you'll only focus on regular playthroughs now?
