Let’s be honest with ourselves here. We all love this game, I love this game, as I’ve played the first RTS like crazy on my old Windows XP machine and even played Warcraft 3 like it was going out of style on Windows 7 and even on Vista. I love this franchise and I love the characters. Sometimes it’s a love-hate sort of relationship, however.
The Love of Warcraft
Oddly enough my first character was a Druid, I’ve talked about this a number of times in the past. However, my true love came when I started my Hunter in Wrath of the Lich King, back then known as Wolzord but soon became the Hunter Focushot, which for a long while was my online name I used to blog Warcraft content.
Truth was, back when WoW first came out in 2004 I thought to turn the beloved RTS into an MMO was stupid. How much I didn’t know how big an MMO was and from a business standpoint it made Blizzard BILLIONS. Nor did I know I’d be writing about it 10 years later. Life is funny like that and I love the heck out of the game so much so that I spend hours and hours writing content, creating tools and guides for others like me to learn from.
The Hate of Warcraft
Just as I love the heck out of this game I so too hate the heck out of it. Sure it’s a great game, I feel that many of the features of the game are starting to show it’s age. Some features came too late and the cost of the game now is starting to take its toll. Many of the cool features and other aspects of the game I have come to hate now.
Even as I write this today my account is currently off as I don’t have $14.95 to spend monthly and I did I would rather go the 3 months or 6 months route with it. However, if I’m lucky I have enough gold to buy 30 days time. A feature I feel came way too late to save the game in terms of just getting old.
Even when I did spend 30k to get back into my account I just did nothing with it and found my time playing Hearthstone more than I was playing WoW. Maybe it comes to the change in my lifestyle.
Maybe it’s just my lack of want or will to play anymore.
Maybe it’s the lack of friends who play now.
Finding Game Time
Finding the time to play the game right now, even as I’m writing this I’m feeling like logging and playing some. Trying to find the balance between making enough gold say keep the game free vs my time playing other things. That is the biggest thing I really dislike about the game and other games like it. The Grind.
One of the worst things when you have a full-time job, a family and other projects in life. Right now Hunter Mastery isn’t my own website I update, I wish I could keep things simple and build a static website and be good. I love creating new websites and testing out new cool things, themes, plugins, all of them.
Which is why I’ve made a final choice for Hunter Mastery
Going back to basics
I find trying to set myself up and say I’m going to write every day or do this on this day or do that, just seems silly to me because I have so many passions. Something I am dying to do again because I feel people who supported Hunter Mastery in its prime was the Podcast.
You heard that right, the podcast is coming back. I might be able to do a podcast weekly or bi-weekly and just talk about the game. My love of the game, things I want to do and the things that I love. I feel that things are changing for me, that I’m finally finding my route in life.
New Look, Getting Started
Of course, the very last thing I want to talk about as the state of the game for me, for everyone reading is also the look of the website. Which you’re seeing right now. I dig the new look, it’s still a work in progress in terms of some areas of the website to be fixed and match with the new look. This long has come with some new pages and as well as the death of some others.
For those of you who came across Hunter Mastery for the first time and have no idea where to start, don’t worry because to help you understand Hunter Mastery and prepare for what you’ll find, I’ve created a Getting Started page. You can also find it in the top header menu on every page.
While I might not be 100% up-to-date with the current state of the game nor be active playing it all the time as I use to be, I believe the content that I’ve created is a good marking for the future of the game and as things go will get updates as they need to be.
