After several weeks of doing real-life stuff and not having time to play WoW (or space, in the case of painting), we logged back in on Sunday night and turned in some quests for a while. I guess. Whatever.
Yesterday, we realized that we had passed the point where you haven’t played in so long that it just doesn’t matter. It’s definitely a consistency thing (for us), and if you don’t keep playing moderately regularly, you suddenly see the time sink and the non-importance. We just didn’t even care if we logged in or not, so we cancelled and uninstalled. I have no feelings about this, really, other than, woohoo, I got 27gb back on my HD!
WoW is supposed to be a super social game, and maybe it’s because I don’t know anyone IRL who plays anymore, but it always seemed terribly isolating to me. I didn’t know people in the guild, the pick up groups were full of random jerks, and people you ran past ignored you. Whatevs.
