What’s a girl to do?

We walked arm in arm but I didn’t feel his touch
The desire I first tried to hide,  that tingling inside
Was gone.
When he asked do you still love me, I had to look away
I didn’t want to tell him,  but my heart grows colder with each day
When you love so long, that the thrill is gone….
I may not really be cheating on the love of my uh.. gaming life, but I want to.
It’s not me.  It’s you!  You keeping changing things,  I never know where I stand with you. What  the next class change will be your planning for next week.
I’ve done it. I’ve registered for Steam ” plenty of games” . I’ve been  clicking on game trailers profile pics,  reading reviews.
Was almost tempted by their last weekends selection  4 games for 13 bucks. That’s a bargain.
I am interested to see what they have to offer this weekend, see if there is anything that looks fun to play with,
I’ve also been wandering into game shops Singles bars. Picking things up, then putting them back on the shelf after confirming I have the right system requirements.

I was also convinced to play some Allod’s online a little speed gaming  for free and easy kicks.
The spark is going.  I need excitement – something fresh. But I want something I can commit  to,  that won’t bankrupt me, lets me go to parties, that cares about me.
It’s hard to walk away from something you have invested so much time into, but sometimes  it’s best to move on. You get a couple more chances,  but then, well  I may change my surname, rebrand myself

    From my own experience: when it’s the right time, it’s not hard but in fact incredibly easy to do – you just do it.
    thinking about it is the hardest part. everything else is just a relief.
    Rift satisfies all my needs for ‘new’ at the moment, but we’re only friends with benefits really, no strings attached. 😉

    Holy crap i am floored. You have been such a staple of the priest community, to see you go is a scary scary sign!

      giving up blogging would be an entirely seperate thing, but I’m feeling disenchanted. Little bits keep me interested and occupied, but I’m actively looking for something else to love.

    I’ve been playing Rift since early start (Well 3 betas before that too!) and truly enjoy it.

    My old guild leader IM’d last weekend and begged me to come back to heal for raiding in WoW. So I re-subbed for one month to see how things would be.

    After logging in all the same issues came back: bad raid management, arguments over gear, bumping people because they were 10% off peak dps …. All the frustration just oozed back out into the open and I had to leave.

    I log into Rift and I am totally relaxed. I enjoy all the new explorations, figuring out my new character builds and in general having a lot of fun again.

    I played WoW daily since right before BC in 2006. I loved vanilla and BC but the game today is not the game I first signed up for. The content since then has been sort of “meh!”. WoW will always hold a spot in my heart as my first MMO. I have many great memories. I just don’t want those memories to be completely submerged by the bad.

    As far as leaving for you — I would continue to read Pugnacious comments on any game. You always have an insightful view and I’ve always enjoyed reading them over the past years.

    When I cancelled my accounts they forced a questionnaire on me.

    I wonder if they actually read the responses. The fact it had selection options for my exact issue with the game (bad design decisions) gives me hope.

    In a nutshell they’re making too many changes at a time without knowing the results before making even more. It’s silly.

    Case in point…

    I understand the design decision to make guild leveling a strong incentive in the game:

    1) It promotes stronger community, with guild leadership being at the center of disputes instead of Blizzard’s ticket system.

    2) It keeps bad behavior in check. Make someone angry enough with your bad behavior and your GM will likely hear about it. If you like being exalted with your guild and the perks it brings, you won’t piss your GM off.

    I understand the design decision to make dungeons more challenging:

    1) Blizzard took a lot of crap for the LOLAOE of Wrath, but it was the first time in the history of the game that a huge percentage of the playing population was geared with end-tier raiding gear rolling through heroics in 15 minutes or less (something they seem to forget).

    2) By making dungeons more challenging, PUG’ing became more difficult (also promoting guild membership). If you’re PUG’ing in Cata you’re doing it wrong. If you’re not PUG’ing you can’t harass people you don’t know.

    These two changes were designed to fix the same problem; too many douchebags. Simply implementing guild leveling would’ve more than likely done the trick. Everyone would form guild groups, and “hard dungeons” would’ve never been necessary because nobody would bother to PUG.

    Was anyone complaining that the heroics in Wrath were too easy when everyone was rocking ilevel 187 gear? No. It was when everyone was wearing 264 and raiding ICC. The same thing will happen again at the end of this raid tier. Nothing will change that.

    As with anything, Blizzard turns too many knobs and pulls too many levers instead of trying one thing at a time, checking the result, and then making minor adjustments until it’s right.

    They can make as many changes as they like to the game now. I’m not paying them to change the game and make it something I don’t enjoy playing.

    TLDR: They patched the fun out of the game one hotfix at a time. They need to ask themselves (with each change) is this making the game more fun? They seem to have lost sight of what’s really important.

    I know what you mean, it’s that first love glow that vanished, it hurts but sometimes a fling or break can help, depending on what you prefer.

    I am currently on a small break myself, it helps calling it a break and not quitting.

    My secret crush is Minecraft, who’s said to be quite an obsessive affair. We’re having fun though 😉

    Wow I’m gonna try Allod’s, I better stock up on Tissues, and lotion.

    Come play some Rift with me. You can hear my sultry tones in Vent as I affectionally call my guildies a bunch of douchebags.

      I think I’ll be skipping rift- might try and get on the knights of the old republic early though when it comes out so I don’t feel like I’ve missed out on the bandwagon. I was gonna ping you re the elf outfit : but didn’t want to be seen to be encouraging you 🙂
