I’m writing this down to commit myself to this idea. Too often in the past I’ve had this great idea I knew was right and I didn’t follow through because of a number of reasons. This is one of those cases. I know what must be done and I must steel my heart and follow through.
It’s now time for me to put down my bags and settle down. Ever since I’ve started playing WoW I’ve been a server nomad. I have played seriously on over 15 servers since launch, following my latest crazy idea or someone else project. While things are usually great at first, projects and people change and move on and on many occasions I felt left behind, stranded in the unknown until I caught wind of something new and moved again to a new server.
This is how I ended up on Silvermoon, the latest in a long line of server. At the time I was dissatisfied with Mug’thol being a PvP server and when Kaozz extended a hand I took it and came over. Yet again, people moved on and ideas changed and what started out as a group of friend raiding together is now a small guild of super casual people. Now, I feel the pull of the cycle yet again, River is starting a new guild on Azgalor and I gave serious thoughts about maybe going over there. But then I stopped myself because I could see the cycle again.
I would go over there, things would be great at first, then people would probably leave because of an issue or another, or my own interests would change and then I would be right back where I started. No more… I’m so tired of this. I wish the best to River but this time I must stay put.
So I’m breaking the cycle. I’m comfortable here on Silvermoon. I have this small guild made up of awesome people. I’m horde, it’s not a pvp server and there’s everything here I could wish for. It warms my heart when I see Geecee log in to level her tauren with her husband. I want us, Kaozz, Geecee, my friends and everyone else to have a good time together and I feel Walk the Plank and Silvermoon is the right place for that even if we’re not playing all the time. It’s my hope that we’ll be able to create long lasting memories and if that is to happen I need and I want to settle down.
So there it is. I’m putting down my bags and committing to this.
