I have been with this Convert To Raid raid team, Humpday Heroes, since the end of Warlords of Draenor. Our goal, as a raid team, has always been to earn the “Ahead of the Curve” raid achievement. Recently we successfully earned the “Ahead of the Curve” raid achievement for Queen Azshara. However, this accomplishment is bittersweet.
Brothers (and Sisters) In Arms
When you take on arduous tasks for months and years with, predominately, the same people a bond is formed. It’s more than just avatar names and pixels. Succeeding and failing together are the ingredients of synergy and the elation of finally reaching our goal is indescribable, however it was also bittersweet.
We often forget that this is just a game. Just like any other game, video or otherwise, it can get stale or life’s priorities change. In our case this achievement is the last one with one of our long time members, and my co-tank. This is the second co-tank I’ve lost this year but real life happens. However, while they are no longer playing the game, they are still a friend. The bonds of friendship will never be abandoned.
As the British say we must “Keep Calm and Carry On”. We are trying out new tanks and regrouping to get ready for the 8.3 raid, Ny’alotha. We have some promising candidates and I’m excited to finish off this expansion with one more “Ahead of the Curve” achievement! I know the Humpday Heroes will continue to prevail!
If zombies attack the world, everyone will run and hide. Except for us gamers, of course. We’ve been waiting for this all our lives!
