"Casual" is definitely relative. Remember that we're talking about a scene dominated by 3-5 night guilds for whom raiding is 80% of their social interaction during progression.I think a lot of it just boils down to priorities and long-term scheduling. For most of our members, e-dragonslaying is their first choice out of the category of activities that includes stuff like reading, TV watching and web surfing. Those things are what most people (in my experience) tend to do with their late-evening hours on weeknights, so cutting eight hours out isn't the same sacrifice that it would be if we were talking about weekends.If I treat Tuesdays and Thursdays as sacred from scheduling standpoint (because of the commitment I've made to the guild) when I'm planning my weeks/months, I still find I have plenty of time for the more important things like family and friends, as well as other leisure stuff like reading, pet projects, and even other video games.
