Back in the day, way back in Vanilla WoW, I was Alliance. I was Alliance for a long time and levelled my first 60 (Sokz the mage, back then she was called Ameggy). One day I'm reading trade and it was juvenile rubbish and I remembered that it had been juvenile rubbish as long as I could remember, even Barrens chat was better! So I quit Alliance and rolled a BE Lock the day that Burning Crusade was released. Good fun and I never looked back on Alliance......until this week. Flashman my hunter has had a faction, race & sex change to a female Night Elf. Awesome!
Two reasons for the change:
1 - Horde /trade is pretty peurile.
2 - My Guild.
Number two is a biggy as number two's usually are :P
Sometimes I was just want to logon and play without having to say hello and be committed to help out or beat my head against some boss because someone in the raid just. doesn't. get. it. week after week for chrissake! Some people are just dumb or don't have the commitment to learn the strategy or don't realise that they're wasting nine other peoples valuable play time.
So I've gone off raiding with my guild for a bit, plus there was the ninja episode that I just can't let go. It goes like this, we have this fail druid tank, really loves himself, thinks he's the best player ever. So this epic caster ring ring comes up with perfect itemisation for my Elemental Shaman and this dumb prick of a tank rolls need on it and wins. WTF is that shit! So I ask why he's rolling need and he says it's for his OS and basically tough shit. It's a massive upgrade for me but as long as his piss weak OS is geared nicely then I guess that's fine.
Which leads me to the underlying reason. My raid team is fail. They just are. Noone takes it seriously, the dumb shit tank is sometime drunk, others are watching TV, it's all just an excuse to sound off in vent and have a chat. I've given up, I love my guild and I love my GM who is also the RL, but I just can't waste any more time and I think I'll go postal if I hear one more lame excuse why some dumb prick is standing in the fire.
So now I can login and be left alone. Flashman is not in a guild and will stay that way, noone on Alliance knows me and I can also play arbitrage on the neutral auction house. Life is good.
