nice guys

I logged onto my old Thaurissan guild site today and contributed to a couple of threads that've been running (shout out to Ellandria, Dudeman and Jameak!!). It was great hearing from these guys and there were a few wall-o-texts around as people caught each other up on news.

So here's the thing - my old guild has not been active for over a year and a half but folks still log in and contribute. Only one of these guys is a friend from RL but I've spent a heap of time with the rest of the team raiding while on vent and I like em - they're nice guys. : )

There's always talk on the WoW forums about how hardcore raiders (and I'd describe Epsilon as hardcore casual - we got a bunch of serious 10-man achieves and titles when they were still hard) are a self-centred, self-promoting, ruthless bunch but that was not my experience.

I don't have the time to raid these days and suspect that the game has moved on in such a way that I wouldn't be too interested anyway. But I remember those times in Ulduar and ICC and they were a lot of fun.

Hi folks,

I've unsubbed my account until MoP.

Here's what's happened since I've logged off from this game about a week ago:

I'm getting to bed earlier.
I've been exercising - though truthfully not a lot more than I did before... ; )
I've been watching movies - B grade sci-fi!!
I've been getting things done - put simply I've found that I have more motivation than I previously did to get into RL things that I want to do.

Will I be coming back for MoP - Sure! I still have over a million gold in the bank, a bunch of max-level toons that will be fun to muck around on and the levelling of three classes to go + pandas, we shouldn't forget pandas! It's just that I find I'm happy to wait until MoP before I get back into it.

Posts will continue in their current haphazard manner and may cover other games in the interim.

Stay liquid guys,
