I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since end-November 2008. I was a bit addicted that I subscribed to a recurring 6-month subscription, bought the World of Warcraft Battlechest then Wrath of the Lich King Expansion Pack.
I started playing at “Coilfang” server then moved to “Bonechewer”. With the help of a plurk friend, I was able to reach level 55 as he levelled his new character with mine at the same time and also helped run my character in dungeons & instances using his main.
I was also able to join a famous filipino guild called Shadow Circle. Last night, I attended their eyeball for the 1st time. I felt a lil out of place coz their characters are already level 80s (mine’s only 55) and they’ve known each other for such a long time (way back Ragnarok days). I myself don’t know any of them and being a very shy person, I ended up just listening them talk while I play with my phone & camera.
They are soo passionate about the game that I ended up reflecting myself. Do I see myself being so serious about the game? Am I willing to allot hours every week just to be able to join raids? Do I have the time and energy to learn about the game and be good at it? Am I willing to shed 15 dollars every month? lots of things went through my mind.. I really admire the guild members & officers for being so good at the game yet they also excel at things outside the game WoW.
I think I can still continue to play as long as I take it slow, meaning I’ll just play on my spare time (maybe just twice a week for only a few hours). Play at my own pace, even if I’ll level only once a week. This is so I can appreciate the game more and at the same time, I have enough time for other stuff.
Anyhow, I decided to cancel the recurring subscription to WoW. I can always bring this back, but for now, I have to control myself from being addicted. My subscription ends July 12, 2009. Let’s see.
I still have 3 months to play the game. Will I be able to reach level 80? (I’m afraid that if I will, I won’t be able to control it and be addicted completely.)
Do you think I made the right decision? Tell me your thoughts..
