Four years of posts, five years of play.

I notice, by looking at my monthly archives, at the bottom of the page on the left here, that I’ve been posting stuff since December of 2005.  Which means I’ve been posting now for four years, and playing for over five.  Yow.

In that first year of playing I went from being a solo player on an RP server, to being a raider on a PvP server.

The second year playing I delved with my guild further into Molten Core and Blackwing Lair and then I dropped out of the raiding scene due to an overseas transfer.  Also I got my wife hooked and Droonda was born.

The third year we were overseas and out of synch with the server by 7 hours.  But between the two of us, a friend who worked with me overseas being on my server, and a guild we’d found with some nightowls, we found plenty to do.

The fourth year I returned to stateside, reestablished some acquaintences from earlier and got back into raiding.  This time through the Burning Crusade, into Serpentshrine Cavern and the Black Temple. 

The fifth year, when I realized I wasn’t carrying my weight (and Taurens are heavy) I dropped out of the raiding scene again (You can dance, if you want to.) and returned to my solo, now duo, ways.

I do look forward to the cross-server pick-up group feature coming in 3.3.  That should mean a lot more people available for getting into some instances.

We’re still enjoying the PvP and it’s “public quest” aspects.  Wintergrasp and Alterac Valley remain enjoyable pasttimes, no matter how many times I’m stunlocked. 

Anzu, Anzu, Anzu.  We’ll be riding you soon enough.

And bring on the Cataclysm.  I’ve got a Warlock to play!

    Yes, 5 years of play on one game is a very long time. Wonder if you could have created a cure for cancer with all that time spent playing or created a couple of new engineering patents? Alas, no one will know know. I remember someone who sent me an article about collegues of his getting some very prestegious award for doing something great, and the subject line was “while we were playing subspace”. Time, goes by quicker and quicker as you get older.

    But they also say “Time wasted isn’t wasted time.” :)

    P.S. Ah, Subspace. It was probably more fun for being played while on lunch break.
