I played WOW for about 6 months straight after release. Then our guild hit some snags, lots of people left, arguments over pvp or pve focus. Then BG's came out and the waiting in line, I decided to stop playing. Enjoyed the summer, played some single player games I wanted to finish etc. But there was something missing that brought me back to WOW in the fall, the teamwork and social aspect of the game.
The guild had hung on over the summer and allot of people like me came back, we had new raiding alliances and AB came out. Now we are taking down Rag, and the first boss in bwl. Its been some of the most fun Ive had playing games online. Yes I sink allot of time into it, but the end result is worth it, challenging, but fun. Isnt that what games are about?
