Ten Signs You Have Been Playing The Same MMO For Way Too Long
Most MMO players tend to play casually logging on for only a few hours a week, others can play much much more. While I’m not one to judge people for their gaming habits, sometimes there are moments that provide a pretty good indicator that you have been playing the same game for way too long. While some of these may or may not have happened to me (I’ll never admit which ones), I do know at least one person who has experienced every one of these signs firsthand.
10. You have your own spot on a particular rock next to the banker, and while you feel there might be monster that needs slaying and loot that needs obtaining… you know if you move that annoying level 21 will take your spot.
9. At some point between your 12th shot of Jagermeister and that empty bottle of Cuervo Gold laying over there you logged in and managed to kill the hardest raid mob in the game. Although you have no recollection of actually achieving this feat, you can prove it from the piece of loot you find in your inventory as well as plenty of agitated testimonials from guildmates that vouch for your having looted that particular piece…which your character cannot use.
8. You spend more time complaining on the official forums about how the game needs more content then you do actually playing the content that exists.
7. You have developed an encyclopedic knowledge of every piece of loot in the game and where it drops, even the annoying tween level loot.
6. You have a character who’s bank account is fully maxed, despite the fact that there is nothing you would possibly wish to buy.
5. In order to roll a new toon you have to delete a level capped and fully geared one, a feat which you are not particularly looking forward to repeating for a fourth time.
4. You log onto the official game forums only to find the new developers have sent you a private message asking exactly how overall weapon damage is calculated.
3. The idea of roleplaying sounds entertaining.
2. You know that while running to a raid you have time to go make a sandwich by toggling autorun at the zone-in and aiming 2 degrees to left of that tree, causing you character to glance off three rocks and make a right hand turn ending up at the dungeon entrance.
1. Everyone you used to play with have moved on to that newfangled game called World of Warcraft.
If any of these signs ring a bell dont fret too hard, there are plenty of good MMO’s out there and several more slated to release soon. Perhaps it’s time to start looking into them.
