Weekend WARrior

I spaced out early last week when it comes to this blog. After a years worth or writing, I guess I needed to put the fingers to rest for a bit. That said, let’s move on to todays topic: the totally awesome weekend I had of playing WAR. I don’t do the rote “here’s what I just did” thing too often, and I don’t want to talk about just that today either, I want to look at why this weekend stood out for me. What did I do differently that made this past weekend a topic-worthy event?

As most of you are probably aware, I almost exclusively run with my guild. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll also see that my guild has never had more than 12 members, and until recently we had maybe six. So, given that, I have grown incredibly used to five and six man teams, running around, bombing the crap out of every blip that crosses our screen. If it’s red, it’s dead. Our focus is SCs. We stay away from the lakes most of the time, unless it’s a keep defense, because those are awesome. Attacking a keep is a snore-worthy event that makes me want to take a cheese grater to my face. It’s terrible. If you read way back when, you might remember that I was in a REALLY big guild before. Probably the zergiest of zerg guilds Order side. So, I’ve done my time in small group play in SCs/RvR, I’m clocked in the zerg-fest of Keep takes/BO hunting, I did the necessary PvE of city dungeons and LV, and I’ve paid my dues solo’ing on my SW while waiting for the rest of my guild to come back and play. I’ve played in most aspects of the game, and found the parts that make me happiest. That said, this weekend, I did some stuff I haven’t done in a long time, or never had before.
