Return on Investment
While the title would look more at home at In the Xone with all his financial advice, my eight-day writing drought has a lot to do with investing.
Time, that is.
As a metrosexual working professional, time is something I don’t have much of. If I’m not at work, I’m at the gym, the salon, or shopping. That leaves the wee hours in the night for gaming – hours when I’m usually either sleepy, hungry or promiscuous.
Sometimes all three at once.
What are you getting at, bro?
What I’m saying is that because of how occupied I am, the amount of time I’ve put into WAR is a paltry 2 days. 48 hours in a span of 3 months. And that’s the total for all my alts combined.
I’ve invested all of 2 days in WAR and for how much I enjoy the game, I’m a bit ashamed. I’m missing out on tier 3 and 4. I’ve only been in 1 keep siege. I’ve never been in an organized premade scenario. I haven’t set foot on any dungeon. You can probably say that I’m not playing WAR the way it should be.
Return on investment.
A casual reaping what he sowed. Because I didn’t put enough time into it, my progress is stunted. Bros come and go, passing Cecillia by as she stays in the same map, playing the same scenarios at short, odd times. It’s like I’m on a single player game with the occasional region chat. I can’t complain – it’s how MMORPGs work, anyway.
You’d think that’d be enough to get a bro down.
With what little smidgen I get, I enjoy. I find even the smallest triumphs in WAR to be fulfilling. If my heals somehow help the group, I’m a happy camper. Heck, just give me some Destro nails and I’ll hammer ’em all down! Provided that they don’t kick my face in first. Even then I can have fun keeping an Ironbreaker alive with Divine Assault. I just can’t stress enough how much I love my Warrior Priest.
And her sexy eyepatch.
So really, I’m not getting ripped off by the bros at Mythic. They gave me a good solid game that can be enjoyed on all fronts. I’m not missing out.
Okay, maybe I am on packages with hair products but I’m not hard to please. For real.
Warhammer Online caters to my love of lore, PvP, sexy elves, and hammers. I can take small bites or swallow it whole.
No, I wasn’t implying Sigmar’s sausages.
Low return on investment? Probably. Worthwhile in the long term? Absolutely. Shit was SO cash, bro.
I finally get free time and what do I do? I mull and write an entry for 2 hours. Pfft.
