Beedee Posted December 20, 2022 Share Posted December 20, 2022 (edited) I played iRose beta in 2005 as a kid. I went by as Sofia Sophina Sophirian and BeeDee. This was my first MMO after having access to the family computer without much oversight. In 2004 my father had passed away and being introduced to video games as a teen was a way for me to make friends online and cope in a lot of ways from the passing of my abusive father. Won't coat it, I wasn't terribly good at games as a kid. I ended up making I think 2 muses, a hawker and a dealer. This game inspired my game career of playing full support in every game since iRose. Ragnarok? High Priestess, Maplestory? Bishop. FF14, White Mage for days, Star Citizen- medic ship. if it has a healing class I'll play it. I loved the chaos of keeping a team alive like the time I spent keeping 7 man teams in iRose alive in the fishy zone. The kindness of high leveled players, clerics- healing and buffing new players was really inspiring. I wanted to make it to level 50-70 so I could get my angel wings and hit 3rd job. Alas the beta closed before I could get there. I ended up spending the most of my time on the character named BeeDee. I took on this name because I was inspired by the negative behavior of a similar named character. I wanted to quite literally be the opposite. I'm sure I always had the values of being kind, a helper and a teacher. But as the first big game playing with other people online this set the tone for how I approached games. That you never know what someone is going through. That kindness and being understanding goes farther than the opposite. I am sad to know that buffs got spread out, but I can appreciate wanting to make sure every class is valued in a team and to give a boost to the long once known as grind-town muse city. This is pretty standard in a lot of populate MMO's including FF14. Otherwise I am absolutely looking forward to coming back to this game and working my way back up to the point I can get those angel wings & come back to spawn and help people in the game & give directions and game help. What you make of your experience in a game is up to you- You make that experience positive at the end of the day even in the face of outside adversity in game and out of game. - BeeDee Ps. Totally didn't influence my career path becoming a Graphic Designer, Illustrator and 3D modeler/Rigger/Texture Artist. So seeing this game post-career knowledge is really awesome from a new perspective. Edited December 20, 2022 by Beedee forgot a thing 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
