I am a horrible, horrible chess player. It’s not that I don’t understand the game or have the mind for basic strategies but that I simply cannot plan ahead and anticipate future moves the way that you need to in order to master the game.
Sometimes I feel as though this “play in the moment” attitude saturates my MMO gaming career. There are larger goals that I’m gradually working toward, but I don’t meticulously plan all of the steps I need to take in order to powerlevel or gain the most optimal gear. I kind of go with the flow, on occasion taking the effort to look ahead, but more or less just enjoying each session for what it is.
Do you plan ahead in your MMOs or do you game in the moment?
