Why I play

Last night my guild had an alt night, and it turned out to be great fun. A good group with lots to do, work together, joking around, possibly causing wipes from said joking around ... well it was fun for me anyway.

To get together online with folks around the country, to do different types of things, enjoying the game with no drama, that's what WAR is at its best for me. Did I come away with phat loot? not really, though I won a couple bags.

Did we own everything in sight? We did pretty well in both PQ and scenarios, but it wasn't like we were a juggernaut of destruction. It was just a good time, hanging with guild friends and new faces. Goofing off at its best.

Don't get me wrong, I like to accomplish the big task, to earn the phat loots, and what not, but at the end of the day, I log on to have fun and last night I had a lot of it.

MMO's are about ongoing stories, the persistent world and all that, but also, importantly, about shared experiences, and when you can savor the shared experience, the time is well spent, regardless of anything else.


  1. I couldn't agree more Czarn, it got to the point last night where everything was fun...Even when everyone (including me) thought you let me die on purpose just to spite me. I myself was literally laughing out loud. Playing with a great group of players makes everything 100% better, and last night we definitely had a great group of players, here's to more of the same in the coming days!

  2. I wish I could have saved the chat. The vast majority of the time, I was laughing my ass off.
