I’ll try following Grimmtooth’s advice and not turn this into a “I’m gonna play Swtor! Suck it WoW players!” post but recently I’ve been giving a lot of thoughts to the end of my WoW career. For me this is huge because it’s the MMO that made me fall in love with the genre back in 2004… seven years ago! We’ve had our up and downs and I’ve done my share of “I quit” only to come back later but this time it feels really different and I believe that I’m done for good with WoW.
Why would this time be different? Because of a game like Swtor? No… while Old Republic is a nice exit strategy the reality is that after seven years of the same game I’m simply done. Beyond the recent changes and announcements the fact remains that after seven years of the same game, the bosses, raids and instances start all looking the same and that sense of adventure and discovery that got me hooked to the game is gone. So while it’s entirely possible that in a few months/years I feel the urge to come back, right now this truly feels like the end of something important.
Mind you, this is not my “I quit WoW” post yet… I plan on doing that later but right now I’m more concerned about how to go about things. Do I do a last round of my favorite places? Do something silly with the Effers or just keep on plugging on Ragnaros until the bastard is dead. In short how do you end a seven year adventure?
