While I understand on an intellectual level that most people think that change is fun, especially when we're talking about a game that's been the same for years and years, I wish people would understand that for me, it's a reason to stop playing the game.

I do not like new. I like familiar.

I do not have fun with new. I have fun with familiar. The first time through anything new, no matter how "fun" it's supposed to be, is absolute hell. For most people, it's the best thing in the world.

I'm a creature of habit. I like doing the same things in the same way over and over again. For me, that is fun. I understand on an intellectual level that for most people, that is boring. Perhaps I'm a Terry Pratchett character - the wizard Rincewind who spent his life searching for boredom, because boredom was safe without surprises. To me that sounds wonderful. To most people I guess it sounds like hell.

But what's happened now, with Blizzard Entertainment's changes to World of Warcraft - most people think that's amazing and great. I've been hearing my partners enthuse over it for months, and been shutting my ears to it because I guess I kept hoping it wouldn't happen, that they'd decide not to do it to the game I'd come to love because it was fun and familiar.

So much for that.

I'm pissed off. I'm not going to cancel my account, but until this game becomes familiar again, I'm not going to enjoy playing. I know I will eventually enjoy playing it, but that isn't going to be today, or next week, or even next month. It's all new and unfamiliar, and I want my old game back.

What frustrates me more than anything is that nobody in my life seems to understand that.
