A lot of time has passed since we were able to play videogames as much as we desired. Or at least, most of us :smile: Now, with many different things to do with work, family, kids etc. it is kind of a challenge or some sort of reward to squeeze in an hour or two to run about with your virtual character.

What is your feeling - how much you will be able to dedicate? How much you should dedicate? Is there a bare minimum to be worth it?

I hope to have 1-2 hours a day. 3-4 on the weekend. Full time job, school, working out, day to day maintenance.. Will make me a filthy casual for sure.

I’ll be saving up my holidays over 2019 that’s for sure! No kids or wife yet so I’m free to play myself into a Classic vortex for a couple of weeks lol

You cheeky monkey! I'll be lucky if I can get in two hours after work/dinner :razz:

Wish I was still in college. I did 8 hours of lectures a week at uni (!!!) and the rest of the time played the shit out of Diablo 2 and smoked lots of weed. The best times of my life!

I'm a night owl, so I'll spend time in the wee hours playing the game. So, in a single day I'll probably play at least a few hours? Maybe less if I really need the extra Zzzs.

I don't think there is a minimum amount of time needed for anyone to enjoy the game. Everyone plays at their own pace, and in some ways I think taking it slow can be very rewarding. See the sights, soak it in! Extra time will need to be invested if you want to raid, though.

I'll play in the hours after my girlfriend goes to sleep until just before she wakes up at 6ish. I figure I can get away with this for like two days before dying. Sucks to be getting older. When I was in college, doing an all nighter sounded fun. Now it sounds like hell.

Haha, this is really something we all can relate to :biggrin: such an accurate way to put it.

I'm in this crowd, for sure. I will 100% not be in any rush whatsoever to level up. I'm just going to let it soak in as you say, and take my time. I miss that kind of pacing, I feel like a lot of games now throw way too much at you - to the point where you can't even enjoy what's happening around you.

I think this'll be a problem for a lot of newcomers who are used to instant gratification - to them spending 2 hours to complete one quest (because you died 5 times to pulling mobs and had to make some friends to finish it) which rewards a tattered cloth with 4 armor on it will piss them off no doubt.

Therefore, the playerbase is not gonna have too many spoiled teenagers. Or none at all. Which is to my mind one of the greatest things about the whole Classic project.

It's pretty hard finding the time to play with a full time job. I get home from work at 4.30pm meaning I can usually dedicate between 1 and 3 hours of time to gaming during the weekday, and the weekends always vary massively as I've got a stupid amount of things going on at the moment!

I'd assume most people with a full time job would be in the same boat?

It will definitely be a challenge to incorporate WoW Classic in between work, marriage, exercise, travel, and social life, all of which I'd like to retain, but I have no kids so certainly not as challenging as for some other folks in here who have parenthood in the mix. The first things that would go are Netflix, any other videos games, and watching sports. Priorities!

Probs one hour per day. Work and college have me zombified.

Don't wait for the world to accept you to try and be happy.

I'm exactly in the same boat lmao. Part time job + studies + girlfriend + sports is gonna leave me with 1-2hrs of playtime a day, at max. More in the weekends of course:)

I will gladly sacrifice time with the wife, friends, and family for more time on Classic. At least in the beginning. 😂

I might die if they release the game during exam season. All my hype for me to have to abstain from the game for a few weeks!

:cry:

Yeh I'm hoping for about 2 hours a night weeknights, 3hours + fri-sun nights.

I can play a few hours each evening from Sunday through Thursday since the girlfriend has to get up early. I guess I will have a lot less time to play compared to 2005 but at least I know how to play it efficiently now.

Actually, I'm not sure. On the one hand, being somewhat regular, giving yourself at least 20-40 minutes a day is nice in terms of maintaining the flow of the character development, current quests, ideas to accomplish and so on. On the other hand, if you can do a couple of hours on the weekends - gametime becomes more pleasurable and precious.

After all, according to my experience, the most appealing and fun way is to treat your character as a tamagotchi - you remember those right? - log in every day at least for a couple of minutes, run a quest, sell something on the AH, do something minor. No pressure of course, yet regular attention. This laid back approach work the best at least for me. :smile:

Yeah, but the problem is that some activities actually do take hours to complete. Think dungeons and long quest-lines that you'll feel really bad for dropping in the middle of the thing because you'll either have to start all over again with a different group.

Onwards, sons of perdition!
