I play every day for the most part, but I guess I am still a nub, really. I play with no addons, I almost never raid and my time limitations are so sporadic I can rarely commit to an instance, BUT I still enjoy this game.
And everyone is correct when they say it is the "leets" that bring down everyones enjoyment level. I have been sneered at for gear (or rather lack of it) and been booted from an instance or two when some party leader who didn't know how to play his class complained about the way I played mine and I have been through the death of three guilds, but again I love this game.
So I grind honor in the bgs and enjoy my "welfare epics" because it's not fair for me to be in an arena team with my schedule. And I say to all those who still enjoy the game for the game's sake "W00T !! to you."
