    What do you do when WoW is down?

    I'm sure you've all been there, you want to play WoW yet can't because it's down/not available to you at the moment. What do you do to occupy yourself/feed the addiction?

    I'm sure there are threads like this, but let's get a current one going.

    Posted in general discussion, couldn't decide between general discussion and off-topic. a mod should feel free to move if they see fit.

    Stuff! Lots of stuff!

    Cleaning, cooking, reading, nerding, slacking in the garden with a beer, sometimes work and other times just more slack.

    Readon MMO-champion too, browse the shit out of YouTube... Post on Facebook *cringe*

    Then I look at how long till going live again, sighing as I seem to always do my tasks fast.. stuck in the end with a book/TV

    Hearthstone, Diablo3 (2 hours a week so very little) , Farmville2 and finished Heavy Rain and now starting LA Noire.

    Yes, I have lots of time as my Bank works for me I just have to put signatures underneath the papers every few months. They even come to our home. Only a few select stocks I follow myself (ATVI and EA of course).

    Oh and I try to ride my bike every day (around 2 hours) if weather permits it.

    Boardgames: on a schedule to play 1 boardgame per month. This month DDay dice, one/two sessions per week.

    I hate gardening and cleaning btw. So I let others do it.

    I go on with my life. WoW is such a small part of my life that not being able to play for 8 or 12 hours (during a time in which I'm usually asleep anyway) has little to no effect on me. I watch TV, work out, read the news, listen to music, etc. You know, normal people stuff.

    If the server is going back up at 1 o clock for example I don't plan so I can play at that hour because it's sometimes delayed. I just do something else and play later instead.

    Sleep.

    If that doesn't last long enough, then I slowly go insane by pretending to do something else while refreshing the server status page.

    I am, of course, kidding... mostly. In all seriousness, I use the time to write or work on one of my art projects, which I do anyway even when the servers are up. I just don't stop to play.

    I'm usually at work. But should I be on holiday and the server is down, I do not worry. I sit back, sip on a refreshing drink and stuff my pipe with some finely scented tobacco. Put my feet up and watch something. Sometimes I may even venture out into the real world, sit in a pub somewhere and chat to random strangers.

    My alpha pass expired. IS the 150 bucks worth it, mate? Pondering currently.
