This may sound really, really sad and very, very loser-like, but it's one of the reasons I appreciate WoW as something more than a game.I had just gotten through a terrible breakup with a girl I was with for almost two years, and just prior to that I had made it into a high-end raiding guild (this was in the time of Naxx at the beginning of WotLK when having EoE on farm was huge). I couldn't bring myself to play (or do anything, really) the game for almost a month, and when I came back I was still in the guild.To my surprise, after I explained what had happened, these new people that I just met supported me and gave me an online intervention from my sad emo phase. They helped to catch me up in the next few Naxx and EoE runs, with other guildies passing on things that they may have needed. Needless to say, I didn't want the charity but when it was forced on me like that by a group of genuinely good people, I greatly appreciated it. It would have taken longer without the enormous support I had from them, and we became great friends afterwards. I still appreciate them as my good friends, albeit online ones, to this day.
