Had a fun week in WoW, but that pretty much always goes without saying. If it isn’t fun, then why play right? This is a season when there should be an abundance of joy, peace and most importantly love. Sadly, that is not the case. Following the news can feel more like reading the novel Heart of Darkness. Take courage thought friend, there are real life good guys out there, like Nicholas, who always put others ahead of himself. If only we strove to emulate one such as him, the world would be a much brighter place indeed.
Attitude goes a long way, both in real life and within WoW. I find it quite intriguing how some individuals act in a particular manner within the game, where by when not logged in, their actions would be more inline with social norms and dictates. Obviously, a lot of it has to do with the condition anonymity. What is the first rule of being on an internet forum, especially the WoW forums, is to never, ever feed the trolls!
Strangely enough, when I am in game, oftentimes I am asked if how I “play” my toon is how I am in “real life”. Of course, is my answer always! While I enjoy enacting out my beloved characters, my toon and I in a sense are one. Not to get too metaphysical here, I simple mean that how I act in game is how I act in the “real world”. It’s pretty straightforward and uncomplicated actually, treat others as you wish to be treated.
So this Winter Veil season, try to be more kindhearted and altruistic to those you come across. In the guild, we have a saying that goes, “nice guys don’t finish last, they get disqualified.” While my guild mates laugh at the humor if it, in actuality I have found that showing kindness to others is returned tenfold. A little thoughtfulness goes a long way indeed!
So my holiday wish for players everywhere and upon all realms is one where truly you experience a wonderful world of warcraft!
(My buddy Grizz and I get our groove on before battle!)
