1. As everyone knows, I hate random boxes. I really do. So random boxes that you need to buy with real money suck and I fail miserably at earning credits. That is the plain and simple truth.
Which means with more than half the pets now out being in Cartel Packs, the fact that at least one more Cartel Pack is coming, and the fact that I am not made of money, I am ridiculously screwed. I’m still stuck catching up with some things from the last pack. Heck, I still need a bunch of stuff from this pack too–all this finishes are the pets.
2. After 3 bits of guild drama, just the idea of guilds has gotten me really really down. I’m not even a big fan of raiding to be honest. It stresses me out and I cry if I screw up and I hate letting people down.
I enjoy doing an operation once–for the story and that’s it. Gear is not SUPEROMGNEED priority for me. It never has been. And yet, I constantly feel the pressure of needing have to because people are so critical. What really bothers me though is I’m forced to do it repeatedly for:
2. Vanity Items
I REALLY wish it was just gear. Every difficulty was just gear and none of that other stuff was in it. I hate feeling forced to do it, let alone repeatedly. People raid for the best gear in the game. They get that best gear, they will be ahead, be able to clear things the best, so I wish all that other stuff wasn’t paired with it. Not to mention with raiding comes the drama of who cleared it first or when or how they cleared it or how many people they had and WHO CARES.
If they cleared the content, good for them. Getting picky on difficulty or the amount of people is stupid and judging people by what they have or don’t have is as well. It’s mean 🙁 And everyone should just be happy for eachother’s accomplishments–not picking on someone or saying they did it the “easy way” or whatever.
This is kind of my issue with Ranked Rating. The point of Ranked Warzones was for people to have competition (aka the people who should’ve rolled on a PVP server to begin with 🙁 ) and to see so many exclusive items is kind of heart breaking. I think if there’s ever a ranked warzone related pet, I will just quit right there because I’ll never get it. I’m awful at PVP, I hate PVP, and everytime someone kills me, I cry.
But yes, overall, #1 is probably bothering me the most to the point where logging in is making me sad over excited. I love the game, I love the story, I enjoy playing my characters. I don’t enjoy how it feels to want to enjoy the game through collecting and the story and be slapped in the face for that.
I’m not super-uber-hardcore raider. But I’m not super-casual-play as I go. And it seems because I’m not either one, I’m getting a huge slap in the face and it’s just really really depressing.
