There are 3 of us who are quite active, with Brimbeard and Frosttoes on frequently. We've starting seeing some faces that we have no idea who they are, mainly Borzoi and Aimitey, and we have people trickling in and out of the chat, as they are prone to do. Many have, of course, left the guild altogether, which is to be expected.

We've told the many who have asked where the guild went that everyone went MIA in the Firelands, with the survivors still looking for their lost kinsmen.

How is GW2? Braiz told me quite a bit about how it is run one night on vent. Dextry would consider getting the game if you were actively raiding. He misses running with the lot of you (I still call all of you "the Beards").

What we were wondering at this juncture is what is everyone's future plan is with WoW, and more importantly to us, the Smalls? MoP has been fantastic, nothing like what Cataclysm was (I strongly disliked it). It's a throwback to older expansions, and we're been enjoying it quite a bit. We understand that many may not have any inclination to come back at all, and that is fine, but we would like to know. When we all set off on the hiatus to TOR I didn't think we would be gone for good, but maybe I was reading us all wrong. We have no plans to go anywhere at the moment, but we would like to know what the plans are, if there are any, for the guild. If there aren't, we need to decide what to do going forward.

Also, we know there was a hurricane. This is NOT important. Take your time answering.

Speaking for myself, I'm probably done with WoW, certainly for the forseeable future, probably permanantly. I don't like what I've seen of MoP and frankly the whole game (or at least PvE, which is the only part that interests me) has become rather stale to me. I'm sick of doing the same content and same bosses over and over again with a different skin. It's not very interesting when it feels like I'm fighting DRAGON_MECHANIC_SET_15782 for the 500th time. I'm not in GW2 or SWTOR right now either (though I'll probably pick up SWTOR again on the 15th when it goes Free-to-play). Mainly I've just been looking around other MMOs (mostly F2P ones, but also TERA for a while) and doing some SC2 with friends.

I certainly plan to keep in touch with you all via the site, Vent, or whatever else, so don't be strangers, but I'm pretty much done with WoW.

Yeah, I completely understand that. I want to get back into raiding, but that isn't my main thing anymore. We mostly do PvP now, just BGs, not arena yet, but we'll see how that goes.

We don't want you to be a stranger.   Braiz and Kara are in vent frequently, and Hettar (Arcite) and I can be found in there when we're doing BGs or just hanging out. Dextry is always right there as well.

Let us know if you find an MMO you stick with. We'll be looking at TOR when it hits FTP as well, but we heard about how severely they are cutting basic things like action bars, so we're a little worried about how well it will work. We hope they relax it a bit.

You'll always be my kiwi!

I hope to come back to WoW someday, I really do... maybe I am being to harsh on this expansion  but from what was originally announced I still cannot bring myself to get it... Maybe I will come back someday.

Thoryn and I have GW2 but are not on very much. It is a fun game but we keep getting distracted by other games. We currently are frequenting Neverwinter Nights 2 on a custom playerworld.

I really don't want to lose touch with you guys. You kept me playing WoW for as long as I did and I always had a blast playing with you all.

Hey guys,

For myself, I honestly have no serious game plans for any game till I finish my degree, which wont happen till a year from now if all goes well.

GW2 is cool, but i havent put the time into it other than questing... school work ramped up on me so I had to set it aside, which is one of the cool things about GW2 is you can set it aside without feeling like your squandering subscription time.

though, as fun as GW2 is... i doubt any game will capture the enthusiasm and attention for me like wow did all those years.

Of course, I say that without ever having canceled my wow account, simply because I keep putting it off.

Im not really a MOP fan, though I remain a wow fan, and if it werent for many external factors might have continued though panda land... but.. not sure as I keep hearing horror stories of imbalance...

The recent storm has thrown a big monkey wrench in everything for the time being to boot... which means i have no time to spend to really make plans for the guild.

If Dex would like GL of the Smalls that can be easily arranged if you guys have plans to do something with it.

Or, as you guys have already hinted at... if  you want to compose one last Smalls story to retire the guild.. we can do that too if folks want closure.

Or.. we just leave it in limbo and hope for sunnier days.

I honestly can't say what my plans are, not really sure of them myself.  GW2 was neat but I lost interest in it for some reason, maybe I didn't give it a fair enough shake down since other seem to love it. 

Right now, I'm playing Planetside 2 on and off.  More as a distraction really, but it serves the purpose.  Other than that, I've been working on my Civ game skills and finding as always that there is room for improvement as the AI nations happily destroy my plans. 

I keep getting the twitch periodically to come back to WOW but really don't know if/when I will give into it.  I reckon things will solidify over the next few weeks for me as to some sort of plan.  Next semester at school should be an easy one but might be complicated if my wife gets a new job in that I will have to finish a few dozen projects so that we can sell our house by next summer to move, so we will see.

I gave into that twitch to go back to WoW. I figured I would give the expansion a shot ( Plus I got it for half off which helps) and I find myself enjoying it despite my complaints prior to release. WoW just seems to be the game that no matter how long I stay away I slowly get pulled back...

So I'm giving GW2 a shot, and wanted to know which of you were still playing there and if so, on what server?

Last time I checked the Smalls were making Jade Quarry their home server.

Hey all,

I played eve online a bit but mostly am playing ps3 games. got black ops 2 and am enjoying borderlands 2 also. Would like to find another mmo we could all enjoy though so the smalls could ride again. I actually started playing swtor since it went f2p again just to finish out a storyline or two. the game is fun as a single player but I do not think anybody else is online there anymore. Ill drop by and keep in touch to see if the clan regroups anywhere.
