    If all your guild / Real life friends quit would you?

    Just wondering, If all your Guild members, Real life friends and friends you've met on WoW and chat to frequently suddenly quit WoW would you still have the incentive and passion to keep playing?

    I'd keep playing, the game is fun enough to where I'd still play and try to find new people to play with.

    I already did for now, hoping flex raiding might be able to tempt some people back next patch.

    I'd have the passion but not the incentive. It might take me a while to get back into the swing of things if it happened but I don't think I'd give up wow at the drop of a hat. A new guild always opens up new opportunities.

    Most of my friends quit in cata and so did I not long after Dragon Soul came out. I came back they didn't so I made new friends and if they quit I'd probably do the same thing again unless the expansion is seriously bad as in cata bad.

    My few "guys i knew from IRL" have stopped playing ~year ago. I don't think it's negative thing, always did leveling and dailies etc. alone. My current guild is kinda dead too since 5.1, no matter as i'll stay just for guild perks.

    All the friends I played with quit in WRATH and then the new ones quit in CATA. I no longer need "friends" to see content so No, I will keep playing until I see no reason to continue.

    Never played with RL friends, and I have been in about 3-4 guild break ups so far.


    Shit happens, move on.

    Probably go casual for a bit, or maybe find a new guild. Dunno.

    I would carry on playing, find a new guild and carry on.

    My RL friends already play partly outside my guild, partly at different times, partly in other areas that don't interest me (pvp). Since I cannot participate in HM raids due to work, I am already somewhat rarely in any guild activities.

    And my friends are RL friends...if they quit I don't lose them.

    Well as seeing as friends I've met via WoW are included in the same guild, if they quit, I'd play on for abit, then if it got too boring I'd also quit, only popping onto D3 to talk to one or two friends I also met in WoW
    This is my Sig, there are many like it, but this one is mine.

    I already quit with them still playing, after nine years it just felt like the right time. That said my quitting was the catalyst for quite a few of my friends/guildies who I tanked/raided with.

    If the next expac is epic (like Burning Legion) and there are new character models, I would consider re-subbing into the game. Until then, there are plenty of other MMOs to waste time on which look better and have more customizations.
    Looks like I will be flying in Draenor after all

    I havn't had any friends since TBC
    Testing: Will probably be toooooo big.

    Majority of my guild decided to cut back or stop playing after a fairly successful Cata expansion (raid wise for us). I attempted to recruit and continue but ended up burning myself out early into MOP and took a break as well. Me and another friend have recently come back to play casually and possibly clear through SOG and am having a blast so far. So much to do when you stop playing for a few patches and you don't have to devote all your playing time to prepping for raids.
