Last Friday John blogged about why he left Rift. Mostly, he said he just doesn't know. So I asked him a question: "(1) Was there something left you wanted to achieve in Rift and it turned out to be not enough fun to bother? (2) Or did you just stop wanting to achieve anything?"
At this point, please take a second and decide for yourself. And do it for WoW, too. Which of these two reasons would best describe why you don't play WoW / Rift anymore?
Now, John said that it was the latter. And that's what I'd say for both WoW and Rift for me myself. It's not that the gameplay suddenly became boring. I still like to play my Mage or Druid. Every now and then I think like I should resubscribe just to do that. But then I don't really see why I should do that. Where would it get me and what would I actually do? Kill random mobs? Wait in queues to half an hour later spam a few spells? Why should I bother?
An analysis of this will be in my next post, when you hopefully commented a bit on this one. Thanks ;)
