Well, looks like my goal of posting at least once per day will not be met this month, oh well. I really should pay more attention to this blog in case someone actually reads this!!
The heavy metal patch for WAR was released on Tuesday, but without the combat changes I was looking for. I was disappointed, but it's understandable that Mythic wants to do right by this and not screw things up. But lately I have been feeling torn about which MMO's I am going to play. I currently have a sub to WoW, and I did buy Wrath, and of course I have a sub to WAR as well.
But I have been thinking of giving LOTRO or EQ2 another run, but I still want to play WAR, and I don't want to feel like I wasted money on Wrath....argh! So after much debate with myself, and not being happy about the WAR patch, I figured I would play out my WoW sub, cancel WAR, and just forget about MMO's for awhile.
So on Tuesday night I log into my account on WAR, see that the next payment is due on the 19th, and I cancel my account. Well, two days later I'm doing my normal blog reading, I come across Ysharros and JoBildo's blog and find that Casualties of War now has open recruiting for WAR.
Well isn't that just great. I cancel my account, and the one thing that I know I would stay for, people to play with, finally happens. For some strange reason, I decided to fire up WAR while at work after reading that (yes, I get to play games at work, muuuahahahah), and wouldn't you know it, the account is still active. What I figured out is that the account renewed on Tuesday, but wasn't billed till Wednesday. We what luck is that, I tell myself.
So I naturally apply for membership to CoW, thinking that if I get to join then I'll stick with WAR for awhile, cause I was having fun and I would like to play more of it. Lucky for me I get accepted to the guild, and now all I need to do is get in touch with a GM and get my characters a guild invite.
