By this I don’t mean your Guild mates, but who is “by your side” while you play.
I was reading Too Many Anna’s post a while back, and I quote:
“I’ll never do an instance”
A guy I was dating at the time would go to instances while I sat and read on his floor, having driven several hours to go visit him. Didn’t make the best impression. A year or so after I started playing, when I started raiding Zul’Gurub and Molten Core, I’d been on one half-completed Sunken Temple run and one half-completed Blackrock Depths run. (When I rolled Annalira was the first time I’d ever been to Deadmines, or any other instance – and I leveled her almost exclusively through healing!)
Over the weekend I was thinking about my son. On the rare occasions I play while he is awake, he is either in the lounge playing/watching Wiggles videos, or at my feet (or worst case, on my lap pressing buttons and demanding the mouse at the worst possible moments).
My wife is usually watching the latest murder mystery send from the BBC to Australia while I play. For a while, when i had a work supplied notebook, we would cuddle up on the couch, her watching TV, me killing Murlocs.
That came to an end when voice comms became important, and my mates didn’t need the background noise coming from my wife, and I didn’t need my wife answering the questions I was asking my mates over Vent. I also changed jobs and lost the notebook.
Very rarely she shows some interst in playing, but that opens a whole can of worms. We would need an extra PC, copy of the game, subscription and of course a Nanny to look after our son. So we don’t think it is really worth it.
So do you play next to a WoW Window/Widower/Orphan or are you surrounded by household alts?
Gnomer and Out!
