good article.This kind of thing is pretty rough to go through. I went through this myself about 4 months ago. I've been playing my toon since launch in 2004(same character all this time!), & I had a group of guys and gals i've been playing the whole time. Through 5 guilds and 1 server transfer, we managed to stay together as a fairly cohesive unit. I'd started the most current incarnation as a side project after experiencing raid burnout after dropping 25m LK last year, and we progressed into Cata as a social guild that eventually became a raiding guild.We developed a bad case of apathy, the ususal people not showing up, wasted weeks, etc, with people looking to me to solve their woes. I ended up folding understress & getting serious burn out, and the game just stopped being fun and became a chore. Which is, you know, the last thing that you want from a source of entertainment.I ended up passing the mantle to a more eager & capable friend, and quitting the game alltogether. It was one of the hardest decisions I've ever made, as I knew pretty much all of them in real life, but feelings mended over time, & ultimately it panned out into one of the best decisions I've ever made. I'm in a great relationship, where at the end of the day I barely even have time to even think about playing, but I do miss the game & my guildies quite a bit. You'll probably still maintain those friendships you'd made, but ultimately it sounds like you're moving on to slightly more advanced/better content, to which end, I salute you :3
