Father Time is undefeated. That’s how the saying goes. What it means is that in aspects regarding time, such as “how much time you have left”, or “how much time in a day”, you can’t beat Father Time. This also applies to video games because as time goes on, the time you have to play them is reduced. For most people anyway, who have jobs, family, and friends filling up their time. For one World of Warcraft player, this is a very hard truth they’ve had to learn.
User Vegabondo has been playing World of Warcraft for about a decade and has been a loyal fan since his first time playing. He’s done a lot, including raiding 5 times a week, being the first to get certain quests done, and receiving certain rewards. From high school to college, this was his game.
Then, when Legion came along, he found himself being more drawn to the game than ever before. But there was a catch. Because of his work schedule, he could only play for certain amounts of time, which he found out to be incredibly limiting. For example, he apparently now needed to grind his character heavily to stay in competitive shape compared to other players in regards to Raids, which he can now only do twice a week. While this wasn’t a problem before, now it’s hard to do much due to his schedule.
Then, there’s the AP farm, which he notes to be “a chore quite early on in the expansion.” And because of time and gaming restrictions, he has to stick with his Druid character (which he picked long before Legion came out) because he has no time to try and level up another character.
His tale is meant for one purpose, to get Blizzard to lower the AP level down significantly so he can continue playing World of Warcraft. Many Battle.net players sympathize with his plight and note similar problems. Whether Blizzard hears and responds to their pleas remains to be seen.
