Moving to a Different Game
Hey Gang, So recently, I've found that I might be able to maintain a WoW (World of Warcraft) membership! So, I might blog about that here and there! I actually played WoW before W101 even existed; about 4-5 years ago. I rolled a Gnome Frost Mage; ah, how I love the Gnomes. This story, believe it or not, actually connects to W101. But, that's a story for another day (specifically, June 15th). No, I am not quitting W101. No, I am not stopping the blog. I just really needs me some WoW. In fact, a friend said sometyhing to me that I very much agree with; 'If an MMO gamer isn't playing WoW, it's only because something's holding them back." This is very true, and I very much agree. If you consider yourself a legitimate MMO gamer, and you aren't playing WoW, it's probably because you have issues IRL, such as financial, parental, or other issues. If you consider yourself an avid MMO gamer but haven't ever played WoW before, or if you think WoW is a bad game, yeah ... I have bad news for you. For me, it was a combonation of a few factors. First off, I couldn't afford to pay for the game. I'm not very great subscriptions. They're kinda like my secret enemy of MMO's. I also had a serious addiction problems with it. At 6th grade, I wasn't going to bed until 11 P.M. or 12 A.M. EST, and then I'd wake up to play it again at 5:00 A.M. EST. It was bad. Now, though, that I have an understanding of MMO's, and that I can afford it, I wanna try playing it again. I think, since I'm older, I'll be able to handle the addiction part. If you wanna be considered an avid MMO player, and you can have WoW (and also be able to handle it; addiction-wise, that is), than you should really try it out. Basically; try it if you have the opportunity. Most MMO players wont consider you an MMO player until you've played at least some of it. I probably wont be able to get my sub until about a month or two. Ok, I gotta run. Me and a few friends are headed to a cafe in a bit. Hope you have an awesome Friday evening! P.D.
