I started WoW in May 07, just a few months into BC. I have fond memories of walking/riding in Outland
and since the whole game was new to me, it seemed awesome. Was easier somehow, more accessible than FFXI. Made new friends, reunited with old friends from FFXI, had a blast for a year and a half. LK came out, and while I was disconcerted at having to 'start over' with gear, with new reps, with having to walk/ride around new areas again
. Cata arrived and I was...burned out. I disliked the areas, even the questing was a painful chore, dungeons didn't flow
, if that makes any sense. So I quit for Rift and played it for almost a year, then came back to WoW because Rift was essentially the same game, just prettier.
MoP was more fun. Pet battles still hold my interest. The rep grinds...not so much. Friends started disappearing, guilds started dying, and I log in for an hour or 2, where I once logged in for entire evenings. Hell, I don't even have goals for the weekend thread anymore. :(
Right now, I'm in the beta for another mmo which will be released this summer. It may be a return of sorts, and may be my last mmo.
I was reading IDrownFish's thread about upcoming expansion speculations. It seemed interesting. Sounds like fun. It sounds like more of the same replays.
But I'm tired
This was depressing. Sorry lol.
