Last night was my weekly night to play games with my friend Vinny. I have been playing Enemy Territory every Wednesday night since last Summer with a few cancellations here and there. Earlier this year Vinny convinced me to try World of Warcraft, a very addictive online multiplayer game. I was hooked from the start but not being able to “dedicate” to more than a couple of hours a week I eventually lost interest. I guess a big factor for my lack of interest was the fact that the people I knew online just kept racking up levels and moved on to different realms and tougher quests, while I was still stuck at level 4!
Well, last night I convinced Vinny to create a new character and we spent the next 2-3 hours roaming around, completing as many quests as we could. By the end of the night I was pretty close to (one more quest should do it) moving to a Level 10 Warlock! Having an experienced “guide” to show me around made a huge difference and I had a real blast! Needless to say, I’m hooked again and will try really hard to tally a few more hours during the weekend. For those interested/curious, I play as “ElGringo”, a Warlock under the Ghost Force Guild on the Bloodhoof realm!
