Uh, Hi there. It’s me, Herculano.
It has been almost one year since I last logged into World of Warcraft. When I left, there was no animosity towards the game or the community. I just found more interesting things to do with my spare time. Things like going on trips, moving to a new house with my girlfriend, getting engaged to said girlfriend, losing twenty pounds.
I’m not bragging (*cough*bullshit*cough* — Editor) but between what real life had to offer, and what WoW offered. real life won my time.
When I walked away from World of Warcraft, I left cold-turkey. I stopped listening to the podcasts, stopped following the blogs, everything. I cut all ties to the game and never looked back. Until now.
After a year away, I downloaded the latest episode of “The Instance” just to see how things have been going in the World of Warcraft. The main topic seemed to be about balanced druids, but Scott Johnson mentioned a few things that surprised me.
- World of Warcraft is down to 7.8 Million subscribers! I think they were still floating around ten million before I left.
- Ghostcrawler is gone. How the Hell did that happen? There might have been talk of that before I left, but I was still surprised when I heard that.
- There is a mythic tier of gear.
I’m sure there are plenty of other things that have happened in the past year that I’m not aware of. I know Warlords of Draenor is the next expansion, that Garrosh Hellscream is a total dick, and you can buy a level 90 character.
Is there anything else I should know about?
