Mar 19th 2007 9:40AM The nay-sayers are basically saying that members of any given religion are not members of a community.
For instance, how many Evangelical Lutheran Church in America member do you think personally know every member of ELCA (or for that matter, all that many members of their hometown congregation)? I'm guessing none. They may know a few outside of their family, but not many.
The same applies to any community, game-based or otherwise.
Dec 16th 2006 9:20AM I've quit a handful of times since release. I've also never bothered to take a toon to 60. I can't stand milling around for hours looking for a group, but it is pretty nigh impossible to do dungeons on one's own, much less many of the quests. I usually get to around mid-fourties before I start thinking "Hmm, maybe another alt would suffice."
The thing to keep in mind though is this: it is a game. Not only is it merely a game, but it is one with over seven million subscribers (I'm wondering how many of those are the free accounts that gold spamers are abusing). Anyway, not all of those people are always going to play this game. While it is quite entertaining, it is fairly time consuming and, if taken to the extreme, life consuming. If anything, those of us who either take breaks or jump ship altogether are the healthy minority.
Those that quit because they don't understand game mechanics enough to see that most of the moves that Blizzard makes are in the interest of players (writ large) are too shortsighted to be bothered with anyway. Good riddance.

I guess he thinks of WoW as a Wasteland. 10 points for those that actually get the reference.

Listen, the game is not about collecting 'phat l00tz.' It is about investing time for entertainment and socializing. The folks that only play so that they can express their ingrained need to get the next best thing are many of the same players that play this game to the point of it no longer being fun. It is no longer a game, it is their personal identity. It is a problem and leads to behavior like this, not to mention the folks who completely go nuts when their server is down for a few minutes longer than anticipated on Tuesday. If you are so OCD that you can't enjoy the game, find something else to do.
