My WoW addiction has finally ended!

After nearly 2 years of playing WoW nearly every day, I have finally stopped playing it. I'm sick and tired of the whole fantasy thing, and now I need a good fix of sci-fi. So what do you think my next addiction should be? Hmm, Tabula Rasa looks quite good. Suggestions?

Does this mean you are back as a forum member, or are you just looking for another MMORPG to piss off too? I keep telling my customers, they are going to make support groups for this sorta thing...

Either way...nice to see ya again.

Good for you

Though I believe you will return to WoW at some point, possibly when the new expansion gets released.

Yeah, I'm afraid once Wrath Of The Lich King gets released, you'll come crawling back

I think you need to come back to #echonet and play some HL2: DM with the friends who thought you'd never escape from WoW's clutches and miss you very very muchly. :S

Phreak seconds the HL2DM thing. Of course, I'll have to reinstall it... again.


As for Sci-fi MMOs, can't think of any that are worthwhile. EVE Online is awesome for the first time, but no fun after the 3rd day. Never paid attention to Tabula Rasa. If the video I just watched is any indication, it looks interesting. I'm just tired of MMOs that just have you pressing 1-0 and watching avatars fighting.

leXXy as a veteran of 2 mmo's [over 3 1/2 years total] I suggest you take a break from them. I mean seriously....take a break. It will do you some good.

I'm glad I stopped [for now heh]...and I believe Groovy isn't far off when he talks about support groups for them.

Thank the Lord! At last, our forum mommy has returned! Your evil plans to abduct Lexxy has failed, WoW!

So, WB. As for Sci-fi, I'd say you go for a non-MMORPG game, as Leemu suggests. Mass Effect is coming out this November, look into it!

Quoted for emphasis. Bioshock is beyond multi-player. It is just that good of a game...

No I won't be buying Wrath of the Lich King, my conviction is true. I am well and truly staying away from WoW. I played the Bioshock demo, and the full game is in the post. Played Fear when it was released, played Prey when it was released. Dabbled in a bit of Fear mp before I started playing WoW.

I think you're right Leemu, I should just avoid the whole MMO thing for a while. Now Niner, that HL2DM is not a bad idea at all. What is the name and ip of the server you guys play on? I'll be dropping by #echonet too.

So good to see all again, feels just like old times.

Pfft. No game comes even close to Clive Barker's Undying when it comes to delivering quality horror.

I've usually just hosted when we play. Set a date and make the usual echopeeps join in.

And Mass Effect is going to own.

:DDDDDDDD!!!!!!

The server is irc.gamesurge.net, though irc.eu.gamesurge.net would probably work better for you. The channel is #echonet, and we do have LFN channels #lucasforums, #starwarsknights and #jediknight as well.

<3 <3 <3 leXXerly! Wacky will be so happy to see you back, if he ever returns from Danishland, that is. >___>;;

Yeah, I'm 20% less annoying and I look really effeminate with my AV and Sig. Oh, and a lot more intelligent than before, I'd kick my 13 year old ass if I had the chance.

Still just as arrogant, sadly enough.
