Has your life improved since you quit?
Yes. Since I quit I am much better about schoolwork, I go out with friends more and I can put more hours into theatre at my school. I consider myself much happier and my social life has improved a ton since I quit.
Do you get bored enough to feel the urge to come back to TF2 often, or are you satisfied enough with where you are (or dissatisfied enough with TF2 when you left) to not even consider it?
No. I hardly play games at all anymore, just never have the urge.
Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?
I wanted to put more time into theatre so I could gain some more experience before I headed off to college. I also wanted to have more free time so I could enjoy my senior year as best I could.
What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
I was really unhappy with playing on all my teams. I had an incredible time when I was on Blue Elephant in seasons 19/20 and it kind of spoiled me. Every team I was on afterwards lacked the same chemistry I felt with all my previous teammates, which made me lose all motivation to try and do well.
And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?
I still think the community is great and the game is fun to watch.
