Why did I (re)start playing World of Warcraft, again? Really. I almost feel like I don’t need another game besides Guild Wars. At least maybe not another online multiplayer game. WOW has it’s charms, but Guild Wars is where I have fun without having to look for it too hard.
Apart from how awesome the game is, I certainly can’t say that I’ve ever participated in a discussion with people from around the world about the American hegemony, immigration/emigration, or the technology and influence of the Roman Empire on my server in WOW.
One of the ArenaNet Community Relations Managers, Gaile Gray, was in International District 1 of Kamadan yesterday. This was super cool, because I had never been in an outpost when she chatted to fans. The Frog (wearing a witch hat) was also there to chat to players. It was really neat. I had no idea that so many people spammed her with questions, like: “Gaile, why did you nerf farming?” I thought it was fairly obvious why they nerfed an aspect of farming: to attempt to keep the gold sellers in check.
