I'm on a horse.
Took a break from wow for the summer once and logged back on guildless... Also, what's this guy's name?
spiel is a cool word.
I hate end of expansion Blues :\"
I think it was 2/3 month's. :)
Well I'm glad I'm not one of those hardcore raider types. There's a lot more to the game than grinding raid dungeons 2-3 times a week people.You join a guild that knows this and you won't be dealing with a cataclysmic situation that involves guild destruction.
Our Guild made a decision about 6 months ago to drop raiding all together - it was becoming a serious uphill battle with only 6 ppl being consistenly showing up (and 5 of those were officers). This is a poor time for Guilds and I think we're surviving because we're laid back and don't put demands on ppl - just remain supportive. Meanwhile, I'm waiting for a large portion of them to come back from SC2 lol :)
Considering that the guild I was really enjoying imploded due to one guild's greed for progression, I completely understand the need for this episode. A lot of larger guilds on smaller servers I've noticed cannibalize guilds to fill their roster in a what I'd like to say futile attempt. Right now the server I'm on is in tatters due to guild drama.
Just a little input, i'm pretty sure Cat is coming out Novemeber 1st, I put a down payment on the collectors edition a few days ago.http://www.gamestop.ca/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?Product_ID=253895"Pre-order Ships 01/11/2010" so yeah :D
I saw no fewer than 8 release dates for Diablo 2, after I put down the full price for the pre-order.And then I got it, about 2 years later.Nov 1st? I'll believe it when stores say it has been shipped.Edit: Now on topic for the video. Lore, loved the blog this week, great topic. Even for n00bs, it's good to hear. (I'm seeing it after playing for only 4 months.)
I've rerolled since my 'blues' kicked in, and I am slowly leveling some toons on a RP server to see the content of WoW before it is changed by Cata. It's also refreshing to actually take part in some RP, it's something very different to me and I will probably remain on RP servers when Cata hits. I have yet to kill the Lich King, but for the last few months my main's guild's raiding has really suffered.
I also got burned out it seems.....I have leveled several classes to 80 (including 2 dk's) and now I have joined Gevlon's project so I can relax and have some casual raiding whenever I want
I'm guessing we've got about three months left until cataclysm, based on the timeline, the state of progression, the fact that they have released collector's edition information. I'm hoping they will slip in some sort of bonus expansion/patch to help keep people interested between now and cataclysm, like they did with sunwell (2.4). And I'd be surprised... and disappointed, if we don't see cataclysmic events (like the zombie infestation before WotLK) start unfolding about a month before the 4.0 patch, which will be coming out before cataclysm is released.Some people don't realize that with WoW, unlike with SC and Diablo, they have external time constraints to deal with. We have arena seasons for one thing, this one has gone on a long time, but I don't think they plan on doing another one between now and cataclysm. The tournaments are another, they'll want people to have time to get used to cataclysm, and for them try to balance things a bit before the next one. There are other things but they aren't coming back to mind right now and I've spent enough time on this already.
Solution to end-of-expansion blues: Play casually. My 10-man guild just put in our first attempts on LK a couple nights ago. We'll get back to him on Monday. No big deal. Once he falls, we'll work on hard modes until Cata hits. Ta-da! No one suffering end-of-expansion blues.Taking things in moderation is a great way to avoid getting burnt out on them.
What's this guys name?
I like the font , how can Ciderhelm don't like it?
