Confessions of a WoW Addict

Posted by David On June 15, 2013 ADD COMMENTS

This will come as no surprise to listeners of NCP, but I’m kinda addicted to World of Warcraft.

I say kinda, because I don’t play though the night knowing I have to get up for work the next morning, or pee into a bottle that sits beside my desk because I don’t want to miss out on the dungeon finder popping, or get anxious if I don’t play for a few days, but this wasn’t always the case. Yes, I admit I’ve had 24 hour marathon play sessions, made use of an empty bottle on at least one occasion, and had trouble concentrating the next day if I finished playing the night before and my toon (character) was only 1 or 2 bars away from leveling, but that was in my earlier WoW days. Being married to a non-WoW player means that I have the joy of being able to spend time with her, so WoW has been relegated to a weekend only, and no weeknights situation and that’s more than ok with me. And besides, I’m an old man now and I need my sleep!

That doesn’t mean that I’m no longer a loyal player. Whenever other obligations don’t interfere, I am at my PC traveling the world of Azeroth, and happy as a pig in mud. Other games may temporally distract me (like SWToR) but I always come home to WoW.

So to that end I thought I might occasionally post some thoughts here about my highs and lows of playing the world’s most popular MMORPG, and even write down the sometimes ridiculously detailed character biographies I have for my toons. I know, bloody RP’ers… ­čÖé

I can’t guarantee it will be a regular thing, but they’ll be up every now and then. I might even be able to coax our resident WoW Yoda to post a story of two.

And, if you have a WoW experience, or character bio you want to share please feel free to post it in the Comments section. I would very much like to read them!
