Weekend Report

Sticking to my promise, blogging on the weekends.

So what has happened?

Eternity Matters got some firsts in 25 man Ulduar this week, with Iron Council down, Kolgram down, etc.  The Cat lady stopped us.

Then quite a few of us last night got Saurafang the Younger down in 10 man ICC.

But I am still seeing the trend of loosing players in the guild, to the point we can't support 25 mans.

So I am looking at other possible things for us to do to keep moving forward.

Have a great weekend.

Mid Week Blog

So I find myself in the rare situation of being able to blog today.  That it is because of being sick with a stomach bug at home, ya, ick....

Anyway, I wanted to do a quick chat with you all.  We are seeing more and more people stop playing the game.  Now, Eternity Matters I transitioned into a Christian RAIDING guild, and yes, the loss of people make it harder to raid.  But the flip side of the coin is we still are Christian.  And each member to me is a family member, be it a brother, sister, grand parent, son or daughter, they all hold a special place.  And it was getting sad for me to see them all go.  Well, after lasts night's raid, God tapped me on the shoulder and reminded me about what it means to live for him.  We had in another channel on vent my wife with a couple of others listen to one of our members pour out a struggle he was facing.  I joined them after I had completed a quick 5 man random for other guildies.  We encouraged this young man and prayed for him.  A reminder not to forget those that are still with us.

So while I dearly miss all of you who have stepped away from the game for one reason or another, I am encouraged that God can still use the individuals in EM to minister to each other in their time of need.

Happy 2010

So I admit again, I am fail at blogging.  I even promised myself to blog more this year.

Things preventing that are restricted access at work, too much to do when I get home.

Well today, I have the afternoon off.

I wanted to touch on a couple of things.

We are seeing good people leave the game, because the focus has changed.

It makes me sad to see the various people leave.

My wife covered it quite well in her blog - The Hour of Our Discontent

So here are some of my goals -

Gear is pixels on the screen, I am not going to buy into the non personal game style that is dominating the culture right now, but make every effort to be with people (even though I am not very social myself).
I do not want to hear people say they are lonely in game no more.

I am going to encourage that attitude in others.

From a pure game perspective -
I am going to finish all the raid content from Wrath down to generic wow before we get the next expansion.

I am going to focus on the fun things and the positive things.

All while trying to balance this with my family.

To my faithful readers, thanks for reading!

I hope to blog now every weekend.
