I really, really wish there was someone out there in the world who liked to play MMORPGs* the way I want to play them:
1) Quests only: no dungeons or raids, I just want to follow a character through the story-line of the game.
3) No crafting: feels too much like work.
4) Gear: I really don’t care what kind of gear my character has. As long as it is the right level for my character – that is good enough for me. And as an addition to this, I don’t care about buying or selling gear in the markets – too much work.
The thing is – I really like to play with other people, But the key word there is PLAY. It is a game, it is supposed to be fun. When your game becomes an obsession and when you get angry at people who don’t take it seriously, then it is no longer fun.
I don’t want to just randomly hook up with strangers either – I want to already know who I am going to play with and more importantly – I want them to know me and my playing style and be cool with my giggling when the monster starts attacking and I start yelling, “run away, run away!”
I have yet to meet a single person in real life or inside the games who wants to play the way I do, and so that means I don’t really play anymore. It is boring to play by myself.
And that is the end of this silly rant.
Where I am:
SWTOR – Shadowlands – main: Jilanna – Sith Assassin, alt: Vaunna, – Smuggler Gunslinger
WoW – I’m sort of all over the place – been playing since 08′, never got a char past level 60 – I just get bored and start new ones
