Last week, for the first time in what could be 2 years, I joined a PUG LFM. That's not big news or important to anyone but me. However, it made me consider why I don't join LFM groups anymore. Long story short, I really never know when I'll end up getting in with some uptight individual who will start popping blood vessels if it takes me longer than 30 seconds to get to the quest entrance. That's not the specific reason, of course, but I think it conveys the idea.
Here's the thing, I do enjoy questing with others, particularly if these individuals are laid back and social, and they understand that my wife and I like to play this game as social entertainment...and to kill things and get nice loot. We largely play with family members and friends. However, sometimes we are on alone or don't have a full group, and we would like to have some (additional) company. It is to that end that I am writing.
Once upon a time, I used to PUG all the time and I got to know just about everyone on Thelanis. Those days are long gone, but I wonder if there is anyone around that might enjoy reconnecting with Eriik and Emmaline. I'm looking for players I used to know that are still laid back and fun. Too often I find players that I used to know have evolved into less patient/tolerant, more driven versions of what I remember. Perhaps my memory fails me, but that's the impression I get, and it's not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for those folks that could stand to play with permanently weak players, just because there is social fun to be had. I'm not saying that there are any permanently weak players in our midst, but I am looking for people who can accept that not everyone plays top shelf or aspires to.
Anyway, if you remember me or Emma (or you want to meet us), you can still laugh when things go pear-shaped, and you like to socialize while meandering (or sometimes sprinting) through quests of all difficulties, please let me know. I'd like to start a list of folks that I can throw a party invite to when we have spots open and are feeling social.
Thanks in advance,
