Bloggers all over the place have been asking what you’d do if there were only 5 hours left to play World of Warcraft:
“Let’s hypothetically assume Blizzard goes out of business and decides to shut down their servers and WoW for good. You have 5 hours before the server shutdown is permanent. What would you do in 5 hours?”
There is no way that event would be acceptable, and it would not be taken well in my corner of the dank-dark internet.
I’d be really upset and angry; and honestly I don’t think I could gracefully login and not want to join the idiots in the General channel whinging. Its better if I didn’t login those last 5 hours at all.
The only way is if some of my wow mates were logging in for a specific event. Actually nope; I’d still be pissed. I don’t want it to end (insert your own addiction joke, that’s not news to me).
I know it will happen eventually, but I’d hope one game rolls into another, so I shift my focus rather than feeling like something is being stripped away. Kind of what the AoC and WAR players might be trying for when they switch games, and also why we keep trying new things.
See it, experience it, and then be an advocate for it; thats my approach.
Kudos to all the guys that have bloged about this before, great idea. And no, I don’t take well when somebody moves my cheese; its my cheese, leave it alone.
