Have you ever given up some MMORPG game? Was it hard? I have given up wow a few days ago, and you know, it was a kind of relief. You don't have to spend all that time wasting your eyes, you don't have to worry about anything like raids, your guild... Oh, yes, and it also added 8 gigs on my hard disk =)

I gave up WoW about 3 months ago. It wasnt that hard to give it up at that point because once the Burning Crusade came out and I hit 70 I had to run instances all the time to gain a certain rep with them to be able to do the raids. That didn't seem so fun, so I PVPed for a little while but my interest waned. However, I just came back to WoW again on a new server and opposite faction (I'm horde now) and now I dont have to keep up with anyone else's level and I dont feel pressured to reach 70 to raid. I'm not planning on raiding this time around. But yes, raiding 4 times a week or whatever it used to be for 6 hours straight was very tiresome. For now, I'm just leveling and looking forward to PVPing in the arenas when I get 70.

I quite wow 8 months ago and now I'm back. I was on a raiding guild in barthilas and I spent a lot of time raiding. Eventually I got worn out by the dramas and effort needed to put into a raiding guild and quit. I went to everquest 2 and left after 5 months. Now I'm back to world of warcraft and is playing with a small casual group of friends. I am still leveling my warrior but we will be doing mainly 5 men and Kara. Maybe even 25 men if we have more friends joining us but we will not impose anything harsh for raids. Its all good clean fun and I play as and when I like for now.

I quit WOW 6 months ago but recently came back. I grew real weary of being counted on to do raids and it got real tiresome and boring. I switched servers and doubt I go back to a hardcore raiding guild

I have given up on WoW a few weeks ago. Once I obtained my epic flying mount I just got bored. Even though I am not playing WoW now, I am still bored, lol. I will probably start playing when the expansion comes out, or I will probably try Warhammer Online when it is released.

It was a bit hard, but the way I see it, the raiding life was too much. The attendance is one thing and it was rather minor. Bigger problems arose with other people not showing up for raids constantly; having to change my schedule only to wait in game and eventually have the raid canceled; and several raiding and pvp guilds taking the game too seriously for my tastes. Sure I'll miss a lot of good people, but its great not having to raid or play or anything. I'm getting a lot done elsewhere.
