If u retire, there is no need to announce via forum. If everyone did that the forum would be inundated with so many useless posts. Unless ur so special u think the general forum population would love to hear about how unhappy you are and that we wont see u in game anymore.
Would be ineresting to know who/how many players here make grand announcements of retiring, and then keep playing LOL. should have a list, so that we know not to believe them when they make any other pronouncements.
