Ask not what can do for wow, but what wow can do for you.
I think there is a problem with the questions we ask ourselves sometimes. I mean the are leading. Leading us to give a carefully rationalized answer to why we do things.
Now before I get really started, I want to point out I started this post before BRK’s announcement, however his reasons reinforced this concept, so I will plow on with the post.
Why I play!
Generally when asked why we play, our response is a clear cut response.
- I play because I love raiding
- I play because I love PvP
- I play because I love the Quest lines
- I play because I need the new phat loot
- I play because all my friends play
- I play because I love grinding (ORLY!)
Why I wouldn’t play!
But let’s turn those statements around. Would you play WoW if:
- The was no raiding or group instances in the game.
- PvP was removed from the game
- Quests were removed from the game leaving only grinding
- There was no phat loot, just the same stuff you have been wearing since level 1.
- Your friends didn’t play, or you couldn’t play with (or make new) friends in game.
- Your grinding repair bills were higher than your revenue, and no experience/ rep was gained.
- You family say it’s us, or the game.
If you couldn’t have it, would you quit?
Gnomer and Out!
