Day 20 – If this was your last day playing WoW, what would you do?
This is kind of ironic.
I’ve recently canceled my WoW subscription. My last day to log in is either tomorrow (the 25th) or Monday.
It has nothing to do with the current Firelands Controversy. I don’t raid, so the nerf had no affect upon my play. No, RL stuff has to take precedence. That means I get to put my WoW playing on hiatus.
Notice, I’m not saying I’ll be gone forever. The game is fun. I’ve gotten to know good people. $15 per month is practically nothing as a subscription cost. Heck, I pay more than that in Dr. Peppers a month! No, it has everything to do with my “Sitz im Leben” (situation in life).
Ok, so the point of this post… What would I do on my last day?
I’ve been thinking about it for a couple of days now.
To be honest, I’m probably not going to log in. For my last day to play, I probably won’t at all.
However, if I did log in…
I would probably give some gold away. I have a couple of thousand gold on individual characters. I bet I could make a guildie real happy with a gift like that. Seriously, I could probably put about 6k in a person’s lap. Sure, that isn’t much…but, wouldn’t you like to have it?
I might run some dailies, just out of habit. I might even run an instance, trying to get my lvl 84 hunter that last little bit to 85.
I wouldn’t do anything real sappy. I wouldn’t take screenies of my favorite places. I wouldn’t log out at that one special spot in Wintersprings. I would probably exit right on the bank steps in the Dwarven Quarter… Errr… Ok, sitting on the stone work above the bank steps! I like to log there.
I think that the reason I take this view is because I know that it is very possible that I will be back. I can’t guarantee it. I can’t promise anything. I have no timeline. It is possible.
However, it is just as possible that I don’t ever play WoW again. Life changes, things happen…you just never know. I could get busy, and just never have time for it. I could find another hobby, some other form of entertainment that takes it place. I’m not discounting it. It is possible.
So, what about the blog?
I’m not planning on discontinuing it. I might change the name, take “WoW” out of it. A while back, I got an email from someone that I would classify as a “famous WoW blogger.” S/he said that my fiction was good! I think that I might start to write some Fantasy Fiction, or maybe some Scifi. If I do, then I plan on using this space. If for some reason I use another blog, I’ll be sure to mention it here.
You just never know.
