Wow, I had almost totally forgotten about this place. Rand across it while I was doing some research on AoC.
Well To finish off what I had been writing before, I actually did make it to Level 70. Was a pretty interesting run, but after that post me and my fiance didn't do a lot more grouping together. She got busy with her guild stuff and I was determined to hit 70 as fast as possible. So her little warlock got left behind around level 40 while I hit 70.
Got into her guild, and ended up raiding full-time even though my schedule didn't exactly match theirs. Holy Paladins really seem to be a rare breed. Even on the recruitment forums people tend to always be looking for them.
Got to see a lot of new content, up to T6, and finally just burned out on the raiding schedule. If it had actually matched my own schedule of work and sleep I probably would still be playing today. but honestly, I just like to do more then work, sleep and raid sometimes, and it was time for me to quit.
I eventually cancelled my account altogether and am now, currently not playing any MMO's. Hoping to fix that, as I really prefer a nice MMO to other types of games. Well, not true, I guess MMOFPS's are another love of mine. It's simply unfortunate that I am not very good at them. Hrm, Although those are MMO's also aren't they?
Picked up a few games for my Playstation, as well as a couple single players for my PC, but just can't seem to get into them. I've been playing MMO's now for so long it feels odd not to be able to make new friends in an open gaming world.
I still find it amusing that people argue over the WoW Raiding versus the EQ raiding. I ended up making a post about it on the boards, and as I don't make posts on the boards very often it's probably in a little column on the right in my profile. They are such different gaming styles, that It's so hard to really compare them.
I just wish people would try to understand how much more time consuming raiding was in EQ1 then it is in WoW. But hey, I guess I don't really want to get into that either.
I'm looking at a couple of new MMO's that are coming out, and realize that I can't run them. I hate my old PoS computer, and it's not even that old. But with a family of 4 and a single income that isn't going to change anytime soon. I love how people can say, "hey it's only $500" Bah! Try doing that while also feeding your family and paying the bills.
Requiem looks interesting, mostly because it's free. I dunno, I guess I'm waiting for the next best thing, just like everyone else, but I don't see anything I'm willing to get into.
Ah well, that's enough for today. I'll try and update this more often.
