How do you deal with an aging game during its low periods?
So it’s been a(nother) couple of months since I wrote anything. To be honest this last couple of months have been hard. I noticed today that my activity and interaction with others on Twitter for example had tanked over the past couple of months, and there were even a handful of days where I made zero tweets all day, which is completely unlike me!
For the past eight years, since I came back to World of Warcraft, I have been a dedicated Horde player. When I re-subscribed I immediately sought out a guild, the sister guild of the old Alliance guild I’d started off WoW in during the middle 6 months of 2006 (Gnome Warlock!). I’ve been a member there now for just over 8 years, and been a member, raider, guild leader, ex-member for a week (long story), guild leader again, and for the most part, a raid leader too. That guild is Thunder and since Feb/March 2009 I never looked back. Until
Don’t worry, I’m still around 🙂 Been taking a break from WoW due to burn out, and been enjoying the time off away from the game over Xmas & New Year, especially as I got a PS4 from Mrs Sar for Chrimbo 😀 I’ve got a pretty hard case of burnout from grinding AP for 3 months straight, so time away is doing me good, especially ahead of Nighthold releasing in 12 days.

Angry. Really, properly, angry. A white-hot, incandescent, rage-fuelled, burning, seething, roiling, pure, barely restrained anger. That’s how I’ve felt since the result of the EU Referendum was announced in the early hours of Friday morning, when the UK had, incomprehensibly, voted by a slim margin to leave the EU. My last post about this before the referendum was largely an on the fence one, but as you have probably guessed I went with my head rather than my heart, and made the sensible, logical choice to remain a member of the EU. It seems however, that slightly too many
Not exactly our typical sort of programming, but then again there’s a reason why I renamed from Sargaming.net to SarCrux.com 😉 So the EU Referendum in the UK is merely days away, and as someone who is pretty firmly-ish on the fence I’ve been doing my best over the past few weeks to make my mind up on the issue. I am leaning towards a Remain vote at this moment in time, but I do have some serious misgivings both ways. https://twitter.com/Sarcrux/status/744814875067580416 I had a good discussion with @BenTinyShaw on Twitter today about the pros and cons.
