The End of Things that Was

As most of you already know by now, I have officially resigned from IMG, both as forum moderator and as writer/news reporter. While I still might do something occasionally, you won't see my name anywhere but the blog or forum very often anymore. And as far as the forum, I've pulled back a lot on that as well.

The reason? I need the time.

2 hours a day for somewhere closer to two years equals over 1000 hours spent moderating the forums, writing news and reviews. And while the community made it worth it for a long time, I can't keep it up any more. I have other responsibilities that still help supporting the Mac community, in a rather more direct way anyway.

But... not to speak about that anymore.

I need to bash WoW some as well, no blog entry is complete without that ;)

Some people claim that the dynamic economy is worth the MMO aspect, but I don't see it as much different from the Diablo 2 economy really, you just can craft things as well.

And as for people and guilds? Come on? Ever heard of multiplayer mode? Just having thousands of extra people not giving a shit about you on the same sevrer doesn't add a thing.

Nope. Still no reason to play extra each month besides the huge and beautiful world... but they should have been able to create an offline version for that as well...

I miss it though.

May Bork watch over me.
