The name of this blog has changed.
After a couple of years of beating the casual/solo player drum, what is probably the closest thing to a perfect (IMHO) MMORPG for those playstyles has been developed - Guild Wars 2. Since nothing is completely perfect in this world, I'm certainly not going to keep ranting about the MMOG industry being unfriendly to the casual and soloing masses out here when we now have GW2 to play - a big league, AAA, full-blown casual-friendly MMORPG if there ever was one.
If I was writing a blog about trying to get to the moon, and then I got to the moon, it wouldn't make sense to continue writing about trying to get to the moon; instead, it makes sense to write about life on the moon. So, this blog will take a new direction (not so new when you consider the last few months of posts were virtually all about GW2) starting now: it will chronicle my casual player experience in and thoughts about GW2 beginning with this last Beta Weekend Event coming up Friday. I plan on letting no ArenaNet designer's loving touch go unnoticed in my time in Tyria.
