And to be blunt, EQ is a game about greed, and that makes it hard, in a guild that raids 4-5 times a week, to make sure you have the balance of real life and game.
The game, like life, is what you make of it. If you choose to make it about greed then it is. :D
Whatever Ken. Dodging the insult you're trying to throw:
A game that constantly tempts you to always have more more more is as much about greed as is the American way of celebrating the holiday on December 25th. As soon as the game added AA, and as soon as it became largely gear-focussed at the upper end, it pretty much sealed this fate because it's never over and you never can win. Can you make it otherwise? Yes, hence my comment above, that you need to be careful to recognize it and not get sucked into it.
This is why we have lots of guilds on our server, not everyone chooses to play the game the same way.
Yes I am choosing to play the game by working to discover the cleric spell, Evil Eye Laser Beams.
They say it doesn't exist but I WILL PROVE THEM WRONG!
I hear it lets me win EQ though!
