Asdfdkfjf. How can my brain be so *tired* and so going a mile a minute at the same time? [livejournal.com profile] spnland's latest game thing is awesome, but my eyes started crossing from comment thread overdose.

I swear, I am so close to telling my guild that I don't want to raid anymore. At least I don't want to leave. I don't think. At the moment. I am just so tired of drama and upheaval and stress and emo tantrums. It's funny, when I'm hanging with the DotA gals lately on Bronzebeard, just levelling, I'm happy, content. It's relaxing. Yet every raid night over on E'T is some hullaballoo or another that is just making it uncomfortable to *be* there. Always feeling pissed off at one person or another. I remember from when I started there, up until a while ago, we could do progression raiding and *gasp* still have it be an easygoing and fun atmosphere. There was the occasional hiccup (the first GM I knew leaving and trying to break up the guild, a problem 'princess'), but in between we did well, raiding was cool. Now I dread it, and my dread's shown to be valid every damned night. I dunno.

Sad thing is, is except for the Lich King fight (25 at least) I *like* raiding still. I'd want to keep doing it if people weren't starting to be crappy, and if the LK fight weren't burning me (hell, not that we even *got* to him this raid week). I want to see the Ruby Sanctum thing they're coming up with soon. But I'm so sick of it being so horrid tense and all this childish behavior going on *every* *damned* raid night. Honestly, don't they notice that someone who was around on offnights working on Wynnchester suddenly only shows up on official raid nights? Don't they think that's meaningful about the whole tone of the guild right now?

Anyway. Shutting up about that. Muscle knot that's been flaring up in my right neck/shoulder (I guess to balance the one that I tend to get where left shoulder/neck meet) said HAI THERE and woke me up. Motrin + cherry pit hotpack on and off all day, and but it's still cranky and redeveloping whenever I tense or move wrong. As a right-side sleeper, this is gonna be interesting. :|

OMG, BB. I feel you. This challenge happening the night before my scariest final? BAD BAD BAD MOJO. TOO FUN, CANNOT LOOK AWAY.

I'm sorry about your raiding? I don't know what that means, but anything that stresses you out deserves a kick in the pants, IMO. *hugs*

Heh, I know it must seem incomprehensible gibberish to non-gamers. Sorry about babbling about it so much. >_< Just my main hobby, so ugh, I do talk about it a lot.

Basically, in an online game like that, there are things you do as really big groups. Back in an older game, Everquest, which I didn't play, I heard there used to be groups of like 80 people. *80!* I can't even imagine working with so many. But when the game I play started, it was groups of 40 people working together (ahahaha, right), now the standard is 25. And it's obviously something that can on one hand feel fun and like accomplishment, but on the other hand lead to people acting like children and be like herding cats.

It's just really annoying that something that should be a *game* can have people being so juvenile and being thoughtless about others. Obviously there's a lot of bad behaving people in an online environment like that, but when you find a good, stable group, you tend to stick with it--so it's disappointing when they start acting badly, too.
