Nothing gives me a case of the Tuesdays* quite like logging on, having ignorantly not read any patch notes or forum posts, and finding my talent tree reset. I suppose you could say it is my own fault. There is a fair chance you are right. I should make it clear I am not blaming Blizzard for this. I understand the logic behind many talent point resets, why things have to be done, blah blah. Doesn't matter. Since when is rage ever logical?
My non-logical response to my non-logical rage? (No, it isn't anything akin to some of the tantrums you'll find on youtube if you search “world of warcraft freak out” though that'll entertain you for a while if you're bored.)
June 24th will mark my 5th year on World of Warcraft so I've found myself thinking about it and how I ended up sucked in. I've taken many breaks over the years, most for months at a time. Once was to move Germany (and then move back two years later.) Another two breaks were to focus on my studies and plow through finishing my degree.
The latest was a trifecta of fail: First I started working nights and was exhausted constantly. Then the power supply on my PC went rogue (not in a good way.) When that was fixed? My wireless internet spazzed, shit the bed and died. When sleep, PC and internet were fixed I logged on only to find my talent points reset. Again. (Later I shall have to blog about the impotent rage-fit I experience every time I have to redo a character spec. Today is not that day. I need to sleep soon.) I logged off, removed my credit card and played Rift for a week. (HA!)
Always, I come back.
