"Now I am finished with school and can do whatever I want, but I'm so glad i started playing after my education was done, I probably would have missed alot bc of this game."Said by someone who's clearly not a parent. Becoming one of those will have you crying for school days back. Once you have kids, the days of doing whatever you want are completely out the window. That's why I get frustrated with someone in my guild who's in college, and acts like it's the end of the world. Classes are important. Homework is important. I won't deny that. But having a flexible schedule with your classes spread apart means you have time during the day to nap if you stayed up late to raid, especially if you have no job. She's online between most of her classes complaining that she has nothing to do, then at night she whines that she can't stay up with us even though most days during the week she doesn't even have early classes. She poaches guild members who can run late (10 p.m.+) to run with her earlier in the evening so we're left scrambling to fill slots when we're off work and have our kids down for the night. She *could* run at night with us, but makes it a choice not to to basically be a drama queen about the whole thing. The most annoying aspect of it isn't filling her slot - when can usually scrounge up someone to fill her role. It becomes a problem when we're left trying to fill *three* slots because she took two other guildies with her four hours before the rest of us could get on.Another one of our guildmembers left recently on a hiatus because he's starting his last year of high school and wants to focus on getting into a good college. That's fine. He's not on at all, and by merely being absent he's not a disruption to the guild cohesion when it comes to raids and 5-mans. At least he's not in the game complaining about it all the time.
