I’ve been playing WoW on and off for about a year now (more off than on). Mostly because of long days at school, but also because I lost interest after a while. Battle for Azeroth was fun in the start when everything was new and there was so much to explore, but I don’t have many people to play with and not much time to play, so it became repeating and I stopped logging on and let my game time run out. I feel like I need more time and have to play more often to be able to keep up with everything that goes on in the game.
But I want to follow the storyline in Battle for Azeroth to see what happens, so I’m not quitting. Actually, I might pay for another month now that the holidays are here. One thing I’ve been wanting to do for a while is to use my boost on an Alliance character and see what it’s like to level up on the other side. I don’t want to go back to just logging in to sell stuff at the auction house, do daily quests or feel like I have to do this and that to get an item or whatever. I don’t want the game to feel like a routine or chores I have to complete every day, I just want to play what I think is fun and for that reason alone. What do you do for fun in WoW and how do you keep the game from becoming a routine? What else should I try when I get back? Something that doesn’t require me to play every day or doesn’t require high item level to enjoy.
So I haven’t played WoW in a while, but I have played Overwatch a lot lately. I feel like Overwatch is much easier to just jump into and join a game whenever I got some time, so I’ve been playing when I needed a break from school and all the stress. Sure, Overwatch can be quite stressful, but it’s also a lot of fun. My favorite game mode is Total Mayhem, which has to be the most stress-filled mode there is because it is so intense. But I love it. My favorite heroes are Moira and Lucio, but I’ve been getting a feel for Roadhog and I play Orisa sometimes too. I should find a damage hero to master too, but I’m not sure which one. Soldier 76 used to be a favorite because he was easy to learn. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to play a hero which requires a good aim cause my aim is terrible!
I love Moira because she can both heal and do pretty good damage, get away from stuff quickly and she doesn’t require good aim. Lucio is awesome because he moves around quickly and can knock people away from objectives and payloads, or off the edge of the map. I love to knock people around on Total Mayhem. His ultimate is also a lifesaver. I started playing Roadhog cause I always found him so annoying, how he can pull you in and kill you faster than you can blink. He requires a bit of aim, so I’m trying to practice. His ultimate can also knock people away which can be very fun, and he can heal himself which is useful if I overextend and almost get myself killed. I wish I had friends who played Overwatch cause I play alone most of the time, with randoms, so please let me know if any of you play on EU and would like to join me for some games, no skill required.
