I love you.
Awwww, if I was only young and single again.

Wife got me involved with MMORPGs when she bought me EQ a few months after marriage. Glad she joined me in several MMORPGs, cause that could have been a marriage-ender otherwise, and has for some people.

Fun when your spouse shares your hobbies.

Glad I finally re-found my post. It got sucked under to page 8 right away! lol.

My server was down for three days at the WoW launch (Khadgar represent).

Kids don't know what anger truly feels like.

*packs another lip of grizzly LC*

..and do you think anyone remembers the first players to reach max level, or get the first epic internet wizard hat? I'll let you figure that out yourself.

Personally, I have downloaded all the extra music on the facebook page (they released the rest of it, by the way). And yes, I actually spelled out "downloaded" and "by the way." It's because I'm not a lazy frak and actually take pride in the 22 years of education I have (two more years until I am Doctor Volund Starfire ).

Yes, I am waiting for the game. Yes, I will admit to being a little twitchy while waiting, because it is such a good game. However, I am not going to threaten to quit, threaten to cancel my pre-order, threaten to blow up a dev's dog, or any of that other stuff. Want to know why?

I am mature. The Army taught me that patience is a virtue. Actually, they taught me to hurry up and wait, but that's the same thing, right? I know that I will be able to play the game. I know that the devs are doing what they can. So, why should I make an empty threat like the McGeneration because I feel entitled?

I am no more entitled to play this game than McJohn who is still living in his parent's basement and wants some Twi'lek lovin' right now! I worked hard to earn the money I used to buy the pre-order and worked hard beta testing to make the game better. The devs are working hard to provide me the opportunity (sorry for any McGeneration reading such a large word) to play their game. Even then, it's up to them whether I play or not.

In the end, I'll just sit here at my computer, checking the launcher every fifteen minutes or so, and laugh at all the McMonkeys flinging poo around the boards believing it will get them into beta faster. Wouldn't it be funny, if the devs actually put them back to a later queue every time they posted a McThread?

That would make me laugh.
Agreed, and well said.

I also noted the earlier reference someone made about playing Skyrim while waiting. That's what I'd love to be doing right now. Pity I put it on my birthday list, no one got it for me then, and likely I'm getting it for Christmas instead so I have to be patient and wait.

Including all the other nice games that came out this Fall, it seems like a deluge of new toys all shoved too closely together.

Play the Fyxt RPG for free! It combines the easy of digital technology with the fun of a tabletop RPG.

I've played more MMORPGs for so many years that its just another normal launch to me. Bioware even let some folks in sooner than expected, and staggered them so that you don't have two hundred people camping the same quest area. Of course, the herd still finds cause to panic and stampede.

I'll just keep chilling. Will check the forums later, moving no faster than a "mosey". I don't expect to get in today anyways.

Life goes by, and its a nice day. Will not waste too much of it waiting. BTW, those folks who are still waiting to get in...go get your food and rest in before the gates open and you try to play a marathon. A day or two difference doesn't really matter.

I am chillin with ya, 14 year mmo vet here, it ain't no thang..LOL
Do not dwell in the past, do not not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Expectations lead to suffering
