This was pretty damn funny, and very well done. But the best part was the little "Those responsible have been sacked" Monty Python reference. It made me LOL :)Hey, I've felt the same way, where you're in a raiding guild and you basically can't play any other games or even have ANY social life outside of WoW... or your guild will take you off the raiding roster and you'll lose everything you've been working for.When you're in a top raiding guild you feel trapped. All of the really successful raiding guilds require 6-7-day-a-week attendance. If you don't, you get dumped for someone who will.Things get pretty desperate, and you start saying things like "Fuck this shit". Epic reward loses any meaning to you because it's not a game any more, it's a full time job.Quitting cold turkey and never going back begins to seem like a permanent vacation from one of the most stressful office-drama-packed full time unpaid jobs you've ever had.I quit, and I've actually never played my hardcore raiding character since I quit the guild she was in. Too many bad memories associated with her.The only people actually having fun playing WoW are the casuals. Raiders THINK they're having fun, but talk to them again in two months and ask them if they're still "happy with their progression".Raiding is fun for the first month or so, then it's just 40+ hours per week trying to get past the latest cockblock and listening to your raid leader scream "-50 DKP!!!" at everybody for failing.This has been going around, and I have to say, my raid leader was way worse than this guy.
