We made it! Well, I did at least 😉 Did you?
14 days of my best behaviour, and my strongest attempt to stay clear of any negativity.
I made sure not to make negative comments and posts, I didn´t engage in debates shouting into the wind, and I did my best to be encouraging on all the blogs, that I followed.
Has the Experiment been successful?
I would say, that for me at least, it certainly has. Granted, I also picked the best time to do this, since it´s been the Holiday season and I haven´t had much time to play/read, but still, I feel a change in the way I think about World of Warcraft.
I also feel less drained, particularly because I didn´t engage in flame wars, debates or any of the likes at all. Especially not reading comments on sites like Wowhead, official forums etc. has meant a huge deal, since it´s so negative most of the time.
Youtubers who prowl around, hoping to be the fastest one to make the best click-baity thumbnail are around every corner today too, so not roaming around there played a role too, I believe
I want to continue doing this in the future.
When I make positive “light” posts myself, I also finds that it helps, so perhaps that is something I want to keep up as well.
But a balance is healthy too, so I shall try to find that. I do also like to participate and read posts, that are of constructive criticism.
I do need to keep in mind though, that I have changed too compared to just two years ago when Legion was new; I discovered, that I have far less time, than I originally thought, and most evenings, it´s only about half an hour of playtime now. I am sure that has an impact too, on the satisifaction I get out of the game; it´s just too little, and if I am not careful, I feel as if I never get anything done.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the experiment 🙂
I would have loved to see more bloggers participate; it saddens me, how many we have lost in Battle for Azeroth, but I hope to see a return of them again someday.
Enough about me though!
