Well, my month away from WAR has ended.
Over the past 4 weeks I’ve played LOTRO which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed and STO which, although interesting, just didn’t tick all the boxes for me.
I think I’ll keep going back to LOTRO – I can dip in and out of it now and again and there’s still plenty to see and do; the trouble is the offers in the online store are soaking up my money, but then that’s the whole idea of F2P I suppose.
STO started out well but it’s just the same old thing over and over again except the weapons get bigger. I may be missing something but I got to the point were I was just clicking through the quest descriptions blah blah blah – yeah yeah yeah – just tell me where to go and I’d end up doing the same thing each time except around a different planet; the ground missions were a good diversion but again they got very samey. I really didn’t get into it as much as LOTRO and although it’s going F2P I don’t think I’ll be returning to it.
So back to WAR – my 3rd anniversary gizzits have finally come through and I spent most of the evening reacquainting myself with my alts.
I finally decided to scrap my 40/45 GSkins, that were made practically useless by one of Carrie Gouskos’s dumber decisions, and start again. No big deal really.
I took my WP into T2 for a warm up – by Gork it was so good getting back to killing people again that I’ve signed up for another 6 months 🙂
Still can’t get my head around WoH though but, who knows, I may get to like it eventually. Watch this space.
It looks like it’ll be WAR full time again with brief excursions to LOTRO – at least until SWTOR comes out. I’ve got SWTOR on pre-order but I think I’ll let the fuss die down over Christmas until I really dive into it – who knows, Myffic might come out with something to keep us all in WAR by then.
Then again Skyrim is due next Friday and Stronghold 3 is beckoning – what to do?
