The game is no longer fun for me. The biggest draw of an MMO is the social aspect; and with such little time to actually log in and play (and I mean play, not grind something for the sake of trying to reach some sort of achievement goal), the game has lost all of its lustre. When you simply can't gain enjoyment from something anymore, it is time to find another pursuit that does provide a fun factor.
With changes happening in our lives right now, gaming is on the backburner for a bit. I may come back when I can find some sort of balance and actually log in for a spell to play with guildies and friends; but until then, I doubt I will even log in to take care of banking and auction house stuff - even though my sub runs for another six months (payment went through 30 mins before I was able to cancel it!).
Good or bad, I'm not sure what this means; but what I do know is that this blog will also be put on sabbatical. I am working towards a few things right now, so I will bide my time, continue planning, and see what pops out the other side.
Thanks to anyone that bothered to hop into this little corner of the blogosphere.
Take it easy, and much peace to everyone who still finds happy hunting in Azeroth.
