I just can't do it

Play well with others, that is. Okay, it's not the 'play well' part, just the 'play'.

I don't want to raid. Really, I don't. I've already stated many times that purple gear doesn't excite me at all. But that really isn't the reason. Let me list them for you...

  • I can't use vent. Not that I don't want to, really. I really have a hard time hearing. I watch tv with the closed captioning on. I would need closed captioning for vent...guess what that is...CHAT LOG. But all guilds that I know of require you to use vent.
  • Raids happen at night. I spend time with my family at night. We are either watching tv shows, playing other games or playing WoW together...but any way I look at it, family>WoW.
  • I don't do well with other people telling me what to do. Especially if that person is 12 and continues to call me a loser. I'm not interested in putting up with that crap just for some GAME that I want to play for FUN.
  • I just don't like crowds. I don't like them at big events, even such as football games, I don't like them at the mall, like right before Christmas, and I don't like them in a GAME.
Those are the main reasons, really. I think they are pretty good reasons. I can't really see anyone beating those in order to convince me TO raid. Nope.

I'll just keep to my little BoE blues, solo quests and daily rep grinding. Now please leave me alone.

New Year's Resolutions

What do I want to do with my characters this year? To be honest...play them less. Yes, it's true. I'm just not cut out for this game. I kept hoping that I would get better. But noone likes me, and the people who used to be my friends don't talk to me anymore unless THEY want something from me. It really seems like such a waste of time.

Yeah, it's fun. Sometimes. When we do some things. But doing the same stupid quests that I HATE, every day, in hopes of getting a cool reward makes me feel like a mouse who is running in a maze looking for cheese and just not finding it. I just keep hitting dead ends, I am not getting better gear playing the way I play, which means I am not getting better as a player, which means I am basically logging in every day only to just bang my head on a wall for hours. Seems pointless. So no, maybe it really isn't fun anymore.

To be honest, though, I don't WANT to be in a 'raid' guild. Because 'raiding' is too much like having a job. Look this way(spec), be here at THIS time, do exactly what we tell you, spend off time ONLY gathering items you need in order to do the job, and if you don't then you don't get the paycheck. Screw that. I will not have 12year olds ordering me around. Hell, I won't have 25 year olds ordering me around...I will not have ANYONE ordering me around! Not to play a G A M E that is supposed to be fun. Nah, they can keep that crap. I just want to go back to my life before WoW. :(

Oh yeah...resolutions...uhmmmm...get at least a few other characters to 80. That's about it. I don't really care if they get anything else. Not interested in getting the 'phat lewt', not interested in the 20k gold mount, not interested in the also expensive motorcycle mount, not interested in much anymore.
