Apathy

Well, it's here. The long-awaited release of 3.2.

I couldn't care less.

I might try and log in tonight to poke around a bit. Can't imagine the servers will be stable enough to try anything too serious.

I suppose if I tried hard enough I could get excited about the Emblems of Conquest and the possibility for huge upgrades over what I currently have, but right now I have a bleh feeling about it.

I thought that maybe 3.2 would be the beginning of another WoW hiatus for me, but waking up today I realized that I'll keep pushing forward...running heroics for the new Emblems and working on getting as many upgrades as I can with the hope of seeing as much raid content as possible.

I'm still looking around for another MMO so I'm not spending all my computer time on WoW, or at the very least a new game to occupy some of my time so I'm not flying around Northrend for hours wondering what to do. I've considered giving Left 4 Dead a shot now that the price has dropped and there's a sequel on the horizon. My bro-in-law has been trying for ages to get me to play Call of Duty on the Wii with him. We'll see.

But anyway, 3.2 feels like filler content that wasn't entirely necessary. I'm not drooling over EoCs, but I certainly won't complain about getting them. There are a couple of other additions that seem kind of cool, but there just isn't anything that's got me wetting myself in excitement.

Happy Patch Day, everybody. Don't forget to update your addons.

lol, for me, I'm excited because I play so little as it is, so I never have a chance to get bored.

Fine point.

I know I need to scale back a bit on my playtime. Maybe I'll get the same result :)

I don't play anymore except for raiding and the occassional Jewelcrafting daily, but raiding is fun still so I'm hanging around.

@Shopx3: I've been doing BGs, cooking/fishing dailies, and playing the AH for a couple of weeks now. I guess I've just hit a lull.

I'll probably get a fire lit under me again at some point. Who knows? Maybe this patch that I've been dreading may turn out to be the ignition.

Well I'll be on with my mage and druid so I'll be on if you need me to heal a few heroics for ya. Oh and as for Left for Dead, if you ever get it, give Arano a heads up as he plays on it quite a bit and I'm sure he would love to game with you on that game. :D

@Jaz: Thanks, man. I'll let you know.

I still don't wanna pug. I don't care if heroics dropped Emblems of Conquest and a coupon for a free blowjob from Megan Fox...still wouldn't pug them.

Sorry you're feeling Wow-demoralised. Alas! I, for one, would be sorry to lose you to another MMO but I think enthusiasm for all games goes naturally in peaks and troughs. I think the trick is to embrace the troughs as part of the process and then the peaks will follow as a matter of course.

@Tam: Yeah, you're right. I'm sure it'll pass and I'll be gung-ho again in a little while. Puts things in perspective, really.
