I recall fondly playing Everquest, and then I remember XP debt and think to myself, "stop being nostalgic". Then I remember that it was the community that made it so awesome, I mean sure, at that time Everquest had an amazing living and non-instanced world, but let's be honest the game play was secondary. This is why I was so captivated by Warcraft, the community and the game were amazing. As a game, Warcraft has evolved to become something beyond what they could have even imagined at launch. So many of the new features are just amazing, and I've loved pretty much every improvement Blizzard has made to the game.But I've found it difficult to maintain any sense of community. It's an uphill battle, one that has only become more difficult as real life friends leave the game, and trusted in-game allies move on. The World we once new is now over run by increasingly immature and hateful children. To such an extent that there can never be a sense of community on most servers again.Right now the number of servers with decent communities is dwindling, and doing so fast. The old guard is leaving, and I'm not certain how I feel about this... wait... I do, it makes me feel old. Damn.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nd5YhwbxL5I&feature=related
