I’ve been putting off the inevitable. But this morning, I took the plunge, and canceled my World of Warcraft subscription, almost 6 years to the day I started playing.
I haven’t logged in since Christmas Day, when I logged in to pick up a few gifts for my alts under the Winter Veil tree. MIA were the many folks who’ve made the game fun for me. And thus I quickly logged off and went back to playing that other MMO.
I have 6 years of memories– both amazingly awesome and incredibly disappointing– behind me with this game. I don’t think I can say the same for any previous game or online distraction.
And then there are those of you who are actually reading this post. The amazing online blogging and twitter community that has sprung up around this game over the years has been a prime motivator and instigator of so much of the fun I’ve had in game. I won’t miss you guys b/c I am taking you along with me via twitter and the other blog.
I may be back for the next expansion, becuase I really am excited about my 150 vanity pets becoming Pokemon.
In the interim, I will still write about MMO guild management topics here when the mood moves me to do so.
But for now, I’m shifting out of the purple shadow form and hanging up my Boomkin dancing shoes for a bit.
Catch you on the flipside…
