The Daily Grind: How do you take time off from an MMO?

Bap-a-dap-daaaa, daaa, dap-a-bap-daaaaaa ~♪

Sometimes you need a break. That’s natural; no matter how much you might like Neverwinter or World of Warcraft or EVE Online, you need some time to do other things. That’s completely natural. But the question is how you go about that, because there are actually a lot of different approaches available to you!

Sure, you could just not play for a week or a month or whatever. But MMOs are always ongoing, and sometimes that means losing some progress from regularly refreshed content. You could also take a few weeks of only logging in for the bare minimum. You could even ask someone else to log in for you, which is a pretty terrible idea but sometimes happens.

And that’s not counting the personal connections you have to various people in the game, meaning you have to ask yourself if you want to keep talking with them, do other things and play other multiplayer titles, and so forth. So we’re putting the question to you, dear readers. How do you take time off from an MMO?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
