World of Warcraft: Taking It Easy

Warcraft BathIt’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on the topic of World of Warcraft, so I wanted to take some time and do a major update on it here.

The thing is that we quit raiding on June 4th of this year. The stress just kept adding up, and I couldn’t take it anymore. Eldar probably was feeling something similar, although I do not remember now. UGH ceased to exist at that point, at least in the form that it was created.

In the past 2 days I’ve browsed through the multiple (mostly antique now) threads on UGH forums. The days when we had to fight to keep UGH alive and not let it die in its infancy, days of fighting to keep the rules fair for everybody, and then the last days when fighting was just not worth it anymore.

Interestingly enough all the people who caused the most grief are nowhere to be found these days and those who supported us on those steps are still around. UGH has been a long good ride along the way of which we got to meet and play with Thebob, Crawk, Volltok, Glonk and multiple others.

The UGH itself didn’t die at all. It still exists and flourishes today, but it took a different shape. Today it’s knows as a Dnevnoi Dozor raiding guild. Yes, it’s that small guild that we started back in 2005 (credit goes to Alena for the great guild name). Now its one of the biggest, well known guilds on the server.

As for us, we keep logging in from time to time to do several small quests, or help out on the raids where there are shortages of people, but our raiding days are long ago over, and are probably not coming back. Eldar didn’t login into WoW since June at all, but that’s because he’s just that much better at kicking addiction, as opposed to me. )
