Summertime always brings a lull in online games. You'd think more people would use the free time to get in game, but alas, some of us must venture out into the sun and burn to a cinder while we pine for air conditioning and fish-belly white complexions.
However, all sunny things must come to an end as the kids venture back to school (THANK THE OLD GODS AND THE NEW!!) and the grownups get to be kids (or pretend anyway). Such is the story of my, and many other SoE'rs summers. We pay the piper of real life to look the other way so we can finally log back into the game we love.
With a very big and highly anticipated expansion coming out in a few months, we have new goals and new motivations to get back in gear! The HUGE class changes coming down the pipe are as big a part of the xpac as Helm's Deep itself. Trait trees, spec points, modified, merged, and new skills await us one and all.
So to prepare: We play. We have fun. We mock each other and sometimes throw things (when in range). Sooo...Same ole SoE. Others peak and fizzle, we endure. 13 - no, 14 years and counting. 'Nuff Said.
