Quiet Weekend

Yesterday actually saw no posts here on MmoQuests as I was dragged away by wild polar bears to their den and forced to listen to– er wait that may have just been a dream. Well, it was a quiet weekend none the less. I played a little WAR but I’m having a few issues (these have nothing to do with the game itself nor guild or anything so please put those flame torches away!) and is an issue that lots of people have to deal with. The issue of course is ‘which server’. I have my order characters guilded in CoW on Averheim which is great. We’re allowed 3 guilded characters total across both order and destruction. I created a Witch Elf on Thorgrim, but there was no one around to toss me an invite. Aside from CoW influencing where I play, I have one friend on Kragg, and myself I’d like to play on a roleplay server – but who wants to play alone. I really want to settle to one character (or two) and not 10. 

I also played EQ2 a fair amount on Sunday, working those writs. I’m really trying to push the guild to level 30 for guild halls. When I logged off last night we were 50% through level 28, and I’m going to work on writs today and at least try to hit level 29. Then it will just be one more writ to go for level 30. Won’t that be fantastic? I think it will. For the size of the guild, and having only been around since early May, Nostalgia is doing wonderful. Of course I should have started pushing for guild levels earlier, but until the release of the halls came up there was never really a reason to aside from cheaper mounts and 5 room housing. 

I’m also working on Beckett MOG issue #16 articles, and I hope people have been enjoying issue #15. Of course that issue does come with house items and it always seems to make everything look pretty. I’ve decided I dislike working on deadlines, but they’re a fact of life. 

I meant to get some Guild War action in, but then got side tracked by a million other things so that’s on the back burner. Still loving the fact that I have no monthly fee to worry about and can take my time. Civilization is sitting here ready to be installed too. Lately it seems I’ve been less interested in classic MMO’s and more interested in other games that may or may not have an online component. Interesting, for me at least.

    Otherwise, you will feel like you are not getting your moneys worth with WAR or EQ2/Vanguard.
    The monthly fee requirement I think really gives the mentality of “I better play, or else I am just wasting money”.

    Guild Wars does not add this pressure, and of all games, it seems the easiest to put aside. Good thing NCSoft still got their money which is cool.

    Of course, due to this mentality, Guild Wars gets “ignored” a lot as well.

    Sad really.
