Something I Didn't Mind Missing

Last summer, I was "busy" doing the Rank 14 grind, so all of my attention was pretty much focused on that and I didn't notice or care much about what was going on elsewhere (I didn't really have a choice, unfortunately). This summer, now that I'm actually able to enjoy the game, I'm noticing some pretty disturbing trends. There is CONSTANT immaturity going on in the Trade Channel, which is being bombarded with "HAAHAHAHAAAHA *insert random rare or epic item here* HAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAA," frequent WTBs or WTSs about "your mom," and other weak sauce insults that I swear I haven't heard since the 6th grade.

That's not where it stops though. There is a complete lack of respect in PuG groups lately that's even bad for an Alex PuG. I swear, the few times I've experienced one with Glitz, it seem more like an afternoon at the daycare instead of LBRS, Strat, or Scholo. And don't even get me started about the lack of skill, class-knowledge, etc. I mean, I can't count the number of Warlocks out there who are stacking Intelligence and Spirit. Hell, I even saw one using a Stout War Staff... and not as a joke...

This influx of spoiled, inexperienced, and retardedly immature behavior is something I didn't mind missing last summer, and can only mean one thing. School's out. All the little Elementary and Junior High kids are home with no homework, no jobs, no responsibilities... just WoW. I think that officially makes this the worst time of year to play the game.

As if we needed anymore of this nonsense on this server...

Laplace is laughing at you.

Really though, there are plenty of other things you could be doing. I know the feeling of wanting to have the same experience of fun and wonder when you first started playing. Thats why a lot of people end up with several characters. Not because they aren't sick of the game, they are trying to re-enact events and trigger nostalgia (generalizing).

I find myself missing the combination of sleepless delirium and being on vent with the old pvp grinders. Bet your ass I am never gonna do that again though hehe.

Yeah. I'm there. I'm actually very glad the wife is playing more often -- I can kinda enjoy the game vicariously that way. Well, she just took res sickness, so maybe "enjoy" wasn't the word...
