Normally gravity draws you in, and we usually hear about how friends and guilds are what keep us playing or bring us back in. And I have to say, I do miss playing with a few of my friends. I liked the feeling of teamwork. Also I sort of miss BC, but that's a tangent and wouldn't be much use anyway.
But then I'm reminded of one of the things that made me stop playing: everyone else. The gravity of community draws us in, but sometimes it is anti-gravity.
Way back on Thursday I made an ever so slightly angry post about DPS. Specifically about how DPS have gotten so damn spoiled that when tanks aren't carrying them, then the DPS think they're carrying the tank. Do I want to go back to that? I don't.
