Goodbye WoW

I cancelled my subscription to World of Warcraft today. I barely logged in over the holiday break, and I've been enjoying Everquest II immensely. One of the main drivers for my enjoyment of EQ2 has come from joining a great guild in the game - Explorers of Legend. Joining this guild has brought a huge sense of community in the game for me, and there's always something going on when I log in. I'm in a great guild in WoW, too (my stalwart guild from SWG and AC2, House Paladin), but the game just doesn't excite me anymore. Leveling in WoW, while quick and effortless, is pretty much a linear string of quests, one after another. The crafting system is oversimplified, and there just isn't much to do outside of killing monsters all day. Plus, the community is pretty much non-existent. I think this is due to the heavy single-player focus in the game. And, there's a sizeable d00d population, which lessens the community further.

So, I'm saying farewell to WoW for now. I may try it again in the future, but for now I'm sticking with EQ2.
