I stumbled across a link to this blog post over on rpg.net:
Wow. It really puts some things in perspective.
We have things really good here in GW land. High levels and massive loot are easy to find. There have been periods where I haven’t played for weeks (except for checking in occassionally) because I needed a break. You know what? I really value that. On top of that, I’m not paying a monthly fee. I could set the game down, and not come back for a year, and pick up where I left off.
(That said, I’m sure *someone* out there, not necessarily in this guild, is killing themselves trying to farm out some of the more onerous titles, or complete EVERY bonus mission with EVERY character they have. You don’t have to beat Prophecies, Factions, and Nightfall each a dozen times.)
So if anyone reading this is feeling pressure to “succeed”, stop. Relax, take a break. Go for a walk or something. Do your homework. Read a book. It will do you good.
