This is not a ragequit or whatnot. This is a carefully thought out decision.
I am going to play Pokemon.
Let's get some facts straight:
1. I have always loved Pokemon.
2. Competitive battling has always interested me.
To be honest, I've always said that I was just looking for a reason to quit this stupid card game.
And then one day I chanced upon this: http://www.thedeckout.com/2013/04/10-years-of-competitive-pokemon-tcg.html
So I went and looked up this 6 time Finnish Champion guy and I saw this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAyp_5ESifU
Look at around the 15 minute mark.
After watching that video, I kinda found the reason to quit Yugioh, ever since then I've been watching Pokemon TCG vids every night instead of being on Dnet, I've left the pool mid-queue just to watch a game.
And then I found this baby: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Genesect-EX_(Megalo_Cannon_10)
I found the deck I'm going to play!
So for the past week or so, I haven't really been taking my YGO seriously, I got 2nd at last weekend's qualifyers and really didn't feel any negative emotion, and the moment I knew I was quitting for sure was when I woke up this morning and didn't really feel like going to the Worlds Qualifyer.
I gave away the win that would have secured my Top 40 (I think) place quite willingly because all I could think of was when I could finally get my hands on a proper Pokemon deck and play it.
I have no intention of ragequitting YGO and selling all my stuff, I would keep my decks and all, but I have no intention of joining Asia Plus, no intention of giving much fucks about this game anymore. I am interested in giving advice to people who want it on my opinion of the game, but I am no longer interested on trying to be the top anymore, cos being good doesn't mean anything now. Casual play with friends who have yet to see the light is the only reason I'm keeping my stuff.
So that's about it, nothing to feel about a game anymore, and you know you've lost your passion.
