Love hate with wow

My love hate relationship with World of Warcraft continues. I have been playing this game on and off for 10 years now, more often off than on but not by choice. Since the beginning of this year I have re-subbed in hopes of enjoying some time with a new guild, which by the  way has been a wonderful inclusive group.

The problem being, most of the long time members are already at max level while my main is at 36! That’s a big gap to be sure and while I enjoy communicating with them via Discord and social media, (shout to TrollerCoaster on the Dalaran pve server) I still feel a bit like I am playing a solo RPG which is not often the case in other mmos.

So I am currently rotating in between my three toons, hoping to get one to max level and beyond before BfA drops. I may take a break again in the month of April if only to get a little time on DAOC, or whichever mmo I choose because, after all, variety is the spice of life. So that’s what I have been up to. How about everyone else?

I enjoyed this post by Tamrielo of the Digital Initiative in which the different types of Guild leaders are categorized. I am too new to Troller Coaster to know where our guild leader fits, but just give me some time. I have a feeling if I was a guild leader, I would probably be the silent but competent type. Which type do you think Vork from the Guild fits under?

Then there was this post last month by the webmaster at NMNM which examines how the governor of KY and later Trump blamed video games for events like the recent shooting in Parkland, Fla. The same old tired narrative of trying to find a scapegoat for the lack of oversight over gun violence in the U.S, despite the lack of any correlation or empirical evidence to link virtual violence with real life tragedies. Sigh. It gets old
