Raging Altoholic - reality check time. You and a bunch of strangers are playing a VIDEO GAME.There are real-life friends and then there are "internet friends". We all make "internet friends" in WoW. Sure they are relevant, but they are obviously not the same as a real, lifelong friend. Can they become a real life friend? Sure, via increased involvement OUTSIDE the video game, but these transformations are few and far between.You tried to tether an internet friend to your agenda, but you're expecting them to have a level of commitment to you as though they are a lifelong friend. Snap out of it. Just because someone you've never met has been a great guild officer for a year or two doesn't mean you should make them your best man/maid of honor at your wedding.Take everything in game, especially promises and time commitments, with a grain of salt. Start mentally attaching "no biggie" to the end of every statement if necessary. It's just not healthy to emotionally invest yourself so heavily in strangers.

If you can't count on a friend in game then what is the point of a guild raid? I expect my friends to be on time to a guild run they signed up for, this pact isn't much different than that, only in size of group.If the dude doesn't feel like playing the duo for any reason, he should tell the other.As for my own experiences with duo play, me and my bf started the game together and I ended up waiting on him for levels worth of play time. He made it to 40 on a warrior and a paladin and hasn't played since. He pretty much decided he didn't want to play a warrior anymore but liked playing his pally so on the far off chance he will come back to the game, I left a leveling partner at level 40. Now that I think about it, I can train the next riding skill on her. Since then, I have leveled a whole 8 characters to 80.
