Testing Your PatienceAugust 31, 2008
Tomorrow morning is Labor Day (US), September 1 (World), T-Minus 17 days until Warhammer Online.
Right now, with the exception of Elder testers on separate servers, nobody is playing WAR, and there’s a general feeling of restlessness.
The wait. Oh, sweet Zeus, the wait.
How are you doing? Is WoW’s 3.0 patch luring you back or making you second-guess your future allegiance to WAR? Are you so antsy that you’ve subbed up with another MMO to make it through the next 17 days? Or are you spending the interval reading up on every last scrap of WAR info, forum and blog post out there?
Are you going to wait for release at this point, having already tasted the fruits of beta to see what they held? Or do you need your fix so bad that, come the 7th, you’ll be hopping around in game once more?
Me? I’m fine. School gears up this week, fall programs at church the next — busy work will not escape me. Plus, I just picked up Final Fantasy IV for the DS, and I’m determined to get through a huge chunk of it by the 14th.
Two weeks. I’ve waited seven months. I’ve dug my trenches and bunkered down. WoW can take a flying leap off a diving board into an empty pool of promises, and I’ll move on with a clear conscience.
