So as a former WoWaddict, I still keep up to date on patches, etc. I have no idea why, but it's fun to see what's coming out soon. The patch notes for 4.1 are out.

Holy. Crap.

I quit playing soon after the release of Cataclysm, but dang if these patch notes don't make me drool. Especially as a former mage, the buffs to Arcane and Frost are nuts.

Strangely enough though, the thing that makes me consider playing again the most is the Guild Challenges. I've always been a very social gamer, and a very social person, so the guild system in games has always been a huge draw for me. The guild levels and achievements Blizzard released did a lot to foster a fraternal spirit in players. Adding something else just amps that up.

The patch notes are up on the front page of
So here's a couple questions for you.

1.)  Are you a social or solitary gamer? Meaning do you prefer to game with other people (while in vent, teamspeak, etc) or alone.

2.) If you've played or currently play WoW, are you looking forward to 4.1?



  1. I'm more of a solitary gamer, and I haven't played WoW, although it looks great.

  2. I'm solitary gamer, I enjoy playing at my own pace.

  3. I enjoy being a solitary gamer!!!

  4. Very social gamer. I've never played WoW for the soul reason I'd love it too much. I'd just play that and chat instead of sleeping. I did the same thing with Guild Wars, built up a massive Guild with a random guy I met on there, because really good friends. We had some awesome events, but nothing compared to the guild events I know of in WoW, like all the challenges to get the achievements first and such.

  5. I never played WoW cuz I didn't have the money to pay the monthly fee and I knew I would get addicted.
