"Hard Core Raiding and a Social Life Oh my"
Last night on my server (thrall - us) a guild got Server first Heroic DW, Congrats to Censored. However after this the trade chat Trolls were in full swing. Hardcore raiders 'have no life', Hardcore raiders never leave the house, Etc etc.
having raided full time in the past these comments, didn't make much sense to me for a few reasons which incited me to do a tiny bit of research. and it honestly appears to me that Hardcore raiders have more of an Opportunity to have a 'social life' then say a casual. eight of the top ten guilds on my server do not raid on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. However most of the 'Casual' guilds raid exclusively on those days. Perhaps i'm just being troll-baited but it seems to be a very wide spread thought that hardcore raiders have absolutely no life out side of the game, and some how are 'bad at life' because they are good in the game. I know personally when i raided Progression in WotLK i was always able to go have a drink with my friends on a Friday night, and have movie night with my Girlfriend on Saturday. What are your thoughts on this? In my mind it just seems like a narrow minded View that Gamers are social reject, a view that should have died ten years ago with the rise of the Gamer into the main stream.
