I don’t care when Cataclysm comes out.
I don’t care what happens in it.
I don’t care if it is all new and shiny and everything in between.
Because I am already sick to death of hearing about it.
Today, I unsubscribed to almost every single WoW blog I read. You in the beta? I don’t read you anymore. You talking about stuff that’s in the beta, or the PTR, or anything else? Sorry, on the hit list. I’m sticking my head in the sand and waiting for this to all pass me by.
I realised I was having a bit of a weird reaction to the plethora of beta news that’s floating around when I had a rather snippy reaction to someone today. “Have you seen the awesome lock changes?” they ask me. “No, don’t know, don’t care!” I growled. Wait, what? Since when do I not care what is happening to Warlocks? Since when do I not care whether things are good or lame or what have you? Well… since people started nattering on about it constantly.
There’s only ever been one real reason why I’ve been excited about Cataclysm coming out, and that was because I thought Wrath was a stinking pile of felhunter poop. Anything to get away from the expansion that I have had so much difficulty enjoying. I don’t care about what is actually happening in Cataclysm, so long as it’s more interesting than Wrath. I don’t much care about class mechanics at this point, so long as they come out OK in the end. Stuff gets changed, and changed, and changed again before it makes it to live, so I’m not going to bother my pretty little head about it now. Sure, it may be exciting to some, but at this point… it’s kinda like having a friend narrate the whole plot of a movie to me without me being able to watch it. And yeah, I know I could download the PTR and poke around, but I can’t be bothered. Which is how WoW seems to be affecting a heck of a lot of people these days. I should really make a new character and call it Bartleby, because that’s who I most resemble with my current attitude to WoW, Cataclysm, and blogging about it in general.
Yep, I’m suffering ‘Cataclysm: DILIGAF’ syndrome. How about you? Excited, or just plain over it already?Tags: Blah, Cataclysm, Don't Care
