So, even once I stopped playing WoW, there was always the urge to go back for one reason or another. To see the new content, to pwn people in PvP, or just to sit around and chat and talk shit with people in guilt chat. Even during the 8-9 months I've been away from WoW, I've been forced to admit to myself that if I were given good enough reasons, I'd probably go back. This weekend, that pretty much changed for good. I got on a friends account, made some characters, and went looking for people I knew on the game to talk. And they're all just gone. I found a few people, but not many. Some transferred, some changed their names, some both transferred ~and~ changed their names, and a lot quit the game entirely. Things weren't the same anymore and I couldn't bring myself to go back to a game and more or less have to start over in making friends, earning a spot in a new raiding guild, etc, etc. All without the people who I played nearly 3 years with. So it's official. Goodbye World of Warcraft. I had a hell of a good time, but it's time I really closed the door on my playing days. Maybe I'll MMO again someday, like with the Warhammer MMORPG. If I do, I've got this place to write about it. But this is the last I expect that I'll be writing about World of Warcraft. It's been fun.
