This weekend I quit my core raiding team.
I’m pretty devastated. I really love raiding and I enjoy the team I raid with. However, raiding times were Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 4pm, essentially wiping out the entire weekend. It’s been a struggle. I work a Monday-Friday 9-5 job, and I work damn hard. So then spending my weekend raiding I feel like I’m working 7 days a week. (anyone who thinks progression raiding is relaxing isn’t doing it right). It’s crazy setting an alarm every day of the week.
There are other people in the team who work Monday through Friday and they don’t seem to have this issue – just seems to be me. At the end of the day, though, I can’t keep pushing myself – I’m just not cut out for it I suppose. I’m getting sick all the time and I’m exhausted in the truest sense of the word. So I had to do it. People are pretty pissed off, and I can understand that. But I can’t sacrifice my health and sanity for a game.
I feel a bit lost and a little scared about logging on, to be honest. Some people are going to be really pissed off. I’m sad about it, and I feel guilty, I’m not going to lie. I spent WEEKS deliberating over the decision. But I don’t know if that’s going to matter to some people.
Argh, I’m just rambling. The moral of the story is, I quit my raiding team and I’m sad. The end.
