So I’m a little late to the party because I haven’t played in a few years. The other day my husband tells me Classic is coming out and my immediate response was “40 mans? Mages get to be squishy pew pew masters again? Count me IN!” and the next morning had me trying to remember my password… we’ve played off and on over the years but the game for me is kind of boring with a total lack of community now. Classic was a lot more about making connections. I have even kept in touch with a few people all these years later, though most no longer play.
The sobering part… I am no longer a 23 yo racing home after work to log in and get ready to raid. I’m a SAHM to a 13 mo and get six hours of broken sleep a night if I’m lucky. We’re busy with keeping up a house, managing the dogs, and raising the munchkin. My husband didn’t play Classic, but started with BC so he “thinks” he gets how Classic is but really doesn’t. We’re going to end up casual players when I really loved the coordination and skill it took to raid well. Younger me is certainly pouting. I need a guild called “Adulting” or something full of people like me. Old hard-core raiders that just aren’t going to have the time to devote like they did fifteen years ago. Who’s in?
