It’s not me, it’s you

I’m taking a break from WAR. Couple of weeks to months, depending. I’ll see how I feel about it then. Sadly, Land of the Dead was not the PvP wonderland I had hoped for, in fact it had the opposite affect. It also doesn’t help that I’ve been stupid busy with real life stuff. Work is insane now that people have been let go, and those of us left behind are picking up the slack (I type this from work, irony FTW). I’ve got a pregnant wife who is milking this thing for all it’s worth (she’s 14 weeks for Pete’s sake, the doctor’s agree, she should be full of energy at this point). All this and the regular slew of day-to-day responsibilities keeps me from being able to play the game frequently.
My account actually expired on the 5th, and I haven’t even missed logging in at all yet. Maybe if my server gets merged, it will be a good server again, but my home in the game has just fallen into disrepair. My old guild leader even quit the game, with all the drama, self-congratulation, and forum posting he is known for. Another guild leader from one of the other largest guilds on the server quit a bit ago as well. It’s become a chore to try to find someone to fight. I’m not playing for that.
So, in the meantime what am I going to be playing? Probably some PS3 titles when I can. I got to poke about in Killzone 2 for a while, and that was stupid fun. I’ve downloaded the free 10 day trial for DDO to see what it’s like with the upcoming transfer to Free to Play format. I’ve also reactivated an old account with a MUD from back in the day, called Gemstone 4. Crazy I know right? But reality is, the game is the most in-depth, fully fleshed world I have ever played in, and it’s just amazing how diverse and beautiful the game is.
I’m sure I’ll be back to WAR, and I hope sooner than later, but I’m not making any firm commitments. I’ll still be active on the boards, and keeping my ears to the ground to see what’s coming for it, as I have a strong love of the game, and a vested interest in its future. So stay tuned boys and girls. I’m not going anywhere, The Shadow-war is here to stay! (God, that was cheesy).
