My Cataclysm FAIL
Well, I don’t know how the launch of Cataclysm was for y’all, but mine kind of sucked.
And now I will explain why:
Reason 1: I apparently didn’t go to bed early enough.
Instead, I watched The Sing-Off (because I like singing. And TV. And TV that sings to me) and decorated the Christmas tree. And then after The Sing-Off, I went to bed. And I set TWO alarms: One for 2:30 and one for 2:50.
I slept through both of them and woke up at 3:45. Which is sort of amazing considering that I am dead to the world when I sleep.
So then I go and get flying in Azeroth and discover Olivia’s Pond, which was exciting because my sister’s name is Olivia. And then I go and get on the boat that takes me to my watery grave. Which brings us to…
Reason 2: I don’t like the underwater realm.
I don’t even like underwater quests. And I generally don’t like being in the water (I’m allergic to chlorine, so that includes pools) and I LOATHE water creatures, including fish. They nibble on your toes and it’s creepy.
Buuuut it’s just a game and I just needed to go collect starfish and a conch shell, so I go. And then I die. And then I res. And then I die.
Reason 3: I’m the worst PvP-player ever.
And because I know that, I just accept my death. I don’t even really try to fight back. Which, depending on the culture you want to side with, is either cowardly or noble. So let’s go with noble. And because I’m being so noble in not fighting the HUNDREDS (not joking) of Hordies that are just killing the shit out of me despite the fact that I just want some freaking shellfish or starfish or whatever, that makes them giant assholes.
So when I finally was able to res, I just hearthed and logged off, thoroughly annoyed that I woke up and logged in in the first place.
And that is my sad, sad tale. I sincerely hope you all had a better experience!
