How has WoW changed your life?
At first, WoW was just another game. I played a variety of games, and it certainly wasn’t my first MMO. At that point, very little. However, it drew a lot of different people, which allowed it to be a bit more social than most. I ran instances with friends on a regular basis for the short time period during which we were all a similar level, and that was fun.
I guess it wasn’t until the end of Wrath that it became a major part of my life. I had graduated college but hadn’t found a job yet. Besides WoW, I didn’t have much in my life. But within WoW, I was a great healer, and people needed me. I poured myself into that, and I suppose it helped me feel validated.
Now I’d say it’s just another part of my life. It’s a game I really enjoy, and I do spend time reading blogs and writing this one, but it definitely doesn’t define me. I have a ton of great memories spending time with Moogle in the game, but without WoW, we just would have been playing something else. How it really changed my life was by introducing me to all my friends that I met through my guild. Without WoW, I wouldn’t know all those wonderful people.
Are you playing the MoP Beta? Why or why not? How much time are you spending there vs. the “live” servers.
I wanted to share cuppy’s response on CuppyVille. I think we feel the same way about the beta, but Cuppy explains it quite well!
