This post doesn’t really have much of a point, and it’s pretty out of the blue. I just.., I don’t know, I wanted to write it. I feel like I need to? Sort of like a diary post kind of thing for myself.
To a lot of you, this probably doesn’t really matter much, but I wanted to write it down for myself.
So I’ve played World of Warcraft for quite a few years – over 12 years to be exact. I’ve played since it first released here in Norway, in 2005. In those 12 years, I’ve barely had any breaks at all. The longest break I had, was about 5-6 months, when I went to a folk high school, where the internet was really bad(until me and a friend found a nice spot at school where the internet was great –
sorry everyone else at school, we totally took advantage of the internet so all of you had no chance of doing ANYTHING online!).
I’ve had a few breaks here and there, but nothing that has lasted for a long time – I seem to ALWAYS have come back to the game.
I’ve been thinking about taking a major break from the game for a long time, because it’s been so.., boring? Not necessarily boring, but I haven’t found anything that has brought me any joy anymore. A lot of friends have quit, some have come back, I know I can always find new people to play with. I guess I just don’t feel like putting in the effort I used to?
I’ve gone from big bad ass hard core player to the most casual of casuals haha.
I guess what I wanted with this post, was to.., well, just to rant and write a “poor” excuse for myself as to why I’m quitting World of Warcraft.
This time I’m quitting it. Uninstalling, removing it entirely from my computer, so I don’t have the usual fallback. Maybe I’ll come back to a future expansion pack, who knows? For now, I know I don’t want to play the game. It’s become a chore to have to log on every day in order to make sure I don’t miss ANYTHING.
Titled this as #01, because who knows, maybe I’ll have random rants about random things later too?
