One of our forum members wrote a terrific thank you to everyone in this community. I think it's only right to share his words beyond just the private forums.
"How this Community Help Me Quit My Job"
Hello everyone, many of you know me but there are a good amount of you
who probably don't. I just wanted to let you in on a little bit of my
personal life and give you all some insight on what this game, community
and forum has done for me thus far in these past 8 months.
For those of you don't know me very well, I am a 21 year old college student.
I'm pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering and up until the new
year worked mostly full time along with going to school part time. Ever
since high school I was only a part time student
and recently started to realize how long it would take to get my degree
if I continued on that same path. I came to the conclusion that it was
time to man up and go to school full time. After making this decision, I
also concluded that there was no way I could continue working and
successfully handling an engineering student workload at the same time.
is this important? My decision to leave my job after three years was
made so much easier due to the money I make from Diablo III. Had I not
joined this forum and purchased the guide, I wouldn't be where I am now.
I know that sounds a little ridiculous but it's true. Other that
Diablo, I play a lot of XBL and gaming is one if my favorite hobbies.
Making money from Diablo like I have is beyond what I ever thought was
possible. I'm sure I could have figured out another way to earn some
money while going to school full time, but not one where I have as much
fun as this nor would I be part of a community as cool as this.
truly don't make an insane amount from the auction house, but I am
consistent on a day to day/week to week basis. If you have ever been a
college student, you know exactly how
much a little extra money can help. All in all, the Diablo III market
can change at any time and all of this consistency I have had could
diminish instantly. I wouldn't advise anyone to try to depend on this
game for a living because I don't. If the auction house disappeared, I
would still be a full time student. I
just wanted to share with you how this community helped inspire me to fulfill my goal of becoming a Mechanical Engineer as well as making
things a lot easier along the way.
My plans for 2013 include to
continue playing the game and the AH as well as maybe beginning to
stream Diablo III or Call of Duty on a regular basis. (I am an avid COD
player as well) I still haven't decided but I do have some ideas
I just wanted to thank Marcko and everyone
here in this community for all you've done, every person has helped
create what we have and what we know as far as the auction house goes.
As far as I'm concerned, we are the most knowledgeable people about this
economy in the world.
