|When motivational posters meant the difference...|
I've mixed it up a bit the last couple of days, but I never forget the real reason why I'm here. This is, after all, a Warcraft Blog first and foremost. So, why the WW2 Motivational poster this morning?
While I was looking for something else this week I came across this poster, and it was the tag line that grabbed me: 'Rationing gives you your fair share.' I'm old enough to remember the Three Day Week in the 1970's when electricity was effectively restricted. I understand the concepts of moderation in relation to gaming time too, especially with an 11 year old who loves playing in computing sandboxes. However, I feel that perhaps I'm being too cautious of late. Even if the player base has dissolved on my server, the game remains as it was, full of stuff that's most definitely NOT on ration. I'm not fighting anyone for anything, quite the opposite. I'm also fairly confident that the day we finally get to hear when Blizzard's releasing the Expansion, things will all go mad.
The last thing I should be doing is rationing myself. I need to get out and make hay while the sun shines.
As you are reading this, I am not here. When I return tomorrow it will be with a renewed sense of vigour, of purpose, and determination. Its time to finally press home the advantage before everyone else comes back and nicks all this stuff I can use to make money and set myself up for Pandaria. I've been making notes on what to do and how to do it and if you are interested I'll take you through my thinking next week. Consider this my commitment to sticking with the game and you through the summer months, which is traditionally the most fallow of times. Let's see if we can have some fun while we do so too.
After all, I might have quite a while to wait before we get a release date... ^^
