    So you're insinuating that a multi R1 Glad is stubborn and/or bad because they dont do M+ or raid?

    Real casuals are not on mmo-c/reddit/any forum, friend of mine who is a mega casual does mostly legacy content, he just dinged 60, have yet to do any M0, random HC or anything at max lvl in SL.

    waiting in the LFG for arenas, while listening to music and spamming the forums for SOLO QUEUE! MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    ps: casual does not mean oblivious to the endgame, it means devoting limited time to the game

    Nothing, i quitted the game.

    they have such a strong focus on player retention that there are nothing fun in the game anymore.

    I personally call that hard core casual.

    I raid (8/10 heroic), sometimes do some mythic dungeons here and there, and play around on alts from time to time. That’s about it.

    Stop misrepresenting what a casual is. Doing mostly casual content makes you a casual. Logging in once a week for an hour to do your 14 is more hardcore than playing 20 hours a week doing your calling and farming those raids for mounts. It's not the time, it's the content.

    Pretty much the same thing I've done since mid Legion:
    1. Work on clearing the current raid on heroic and then try some mythic.
    2. Work on the M+ achievements.
    3. Dabble in non-ranked pvp.
    4. Eventually level all my alts.
    5. Work towards another gold cap.

    None of the above happens quickly, well not on purpose*. Slow, steady.... casual.

    *Sometimes I get AoTC pretty fast or M+10/15 due to the right friends being subbed at the right time.

    i feel really lost, i dont keep up with things like i used to so i dont know what all these systems are or what i need them for or the best way to go about leveling them. I lvld a warrior to max and joined a covenant and got bored, so now im lvling a warlock but dont really know what im gonna do once i get to max. Just do some random bgs every now and then tbh

    ITT: People conflating 'casual' with 'bad'

    Casual isn't about how good or bad you are. It's about how seriously you take the game. Sorry but averaging 2 hours a day is still perfectly fine for being casual.

    If you don't care about pushing world firsts, or rank 1 or doing like +20 keys... You can still fit the bill of casual perfectly fine, it's really all a matter of mindset.

    You can get gladiator, keystone master and cutting edge while still being a casual player, it's all about pacing yourself. It's these 'hardcore' players who screech if a casual player ends up being more successful than them, because to them casual == bad. There's a reason why casuals tend to burn out much more slowly.

    Whatever I feel like doing. I only play maybe 4 hours a week—although some weeks I don't play at all or play less than even this—so there's always something to do. World content takes many months to be really tiresome at this rate. There's always achievements and filling out collections, too.

    The thing that few seem to realize is that there are likely more players like this than any other sort. The game is mostly now designed for us/them and those who drop in and out over the course of an expansion.

    I have to admit, Blizzard went overboard with adding full blown mog sets to start SL. You get them from covenants and such. And somehow they are ALL ugly and poorly designed. They really look like crap. I have no interest in farming any of them. I think that really undercuts what they are trying to accomplish. It eliminates mog hunting as an activity this xpac. And that changes what casuals do.

Space platforms as in Starcraft. Just a totally fantastic tileset & theme that I'd be very keen to explore. They could do some wild things.

    I try to do a few callings and dailies that are easily reachable. Every few days I do some quests in that maw hellhole. I did LFR once. I let my addon start all adventures. I sell some stuff on the AH.

    Well, since I just finished layer 8 TC, not much. Wait till the stars align and my IRL friends that still play all decide to log on at the same time so we can run a couple mythic dungeons. We don't push keys so I think that still counts as casual. Just chat on discord while doing a couple dungeons then get back to our lives.

    I don't pretend to complain saying this, but i unsubbed. I didn't have fun as a casual with SL, but thats because of personal appeal and a "me thing", which is perfectly ok.

    1. M+ runs (0-3 a week)
    2. Raid (just finished normal)
    3. Farm rep/anima and everything on my main
    4. Alts - doing my third alt (MM Hunter)
    5. The odd WQ or daily here or there (where it is good bang for buck).

    We have a community with mostly players who did raid a lot / at higher level in the past but are nowadays all playing casual.
    Our week looks as follows generally:

    - Wednesday 20-22 Clearing normal castle with the people who aren't into HC raiding.
    - Thursday 20-22 Heroic raid with the other people, we just killed Denathrius last week.
    - Friday 20-23 Mythic+, we usually try to get a +14 done for everyone joining, for the vault.
    - Tuesday 20-22 Finishing off Heroic if any bosses are left, otherwise this is a free night.

    All in all we play around 9 hours each week, but we do clear both normal and HC castle and usually everyone in the community gets a +14 done on fridays. Most people in the community will only log a few hours outside of this to do their covenant, torghast etc.
    Not sure if this defines as casual, but by the hours i think it does?

    Busy solo'ing Twisting Corridors layers as frost mage. Enjoying it actually. Each layer is about 2 hours, but I take lots of breaks in between floors doing other stuff.

    Pug my M+ and hope to reach KSM - doing the 14s now. Also hope to get Curve since it's the only thing i really care about, but pugging that is waaaay harder.

    EDIT: i manage to do the 4 runs/week for the cache, usually the weekend mornings. Less groups, but also way less competition and i found a nice degree of success. Only a handful of terrible groups with leavers, the rest of the runs went either really smooth or we depleted the key, but now by much and no one left.

    You tried, and you failed. What have you learned? That's better not to try at all.
