MMO Blogger All-stars

As a thought experiment, I wondered what it would be like if a bunch of the more famous MMO bloggers out there, got together with the aim to creating a team/group/guild/fellowship/dance troupe within a game. It would be interesting to see how blogs differed on experiences when the group adventured together. It's possibly a recipe for eXtreme Dah-rama[TM] but it could also be an interesting insight into how different, experienced gamers see the content they play in direct contrast to one another. There's obviously the left-pond/right-pond time difference to complicate matters among other things, but sorting out details is left to others.

I'm more of a (dumb-)ideas person. Now, back to work on my battery powered battery charger...

Would you accept a couple of lesser tier bloggers who first played together then started blogging?

That would be Potshot and I when it comes to WoW and LOTRO... and Gaff and I when it comes to EQ2.

But that might just prove that blogging is a virus that spreads through online gaming.

It's funny, because I started blogging after enjoying Zoso's blog a lot, and during our discussions I tend to have ideas that I want to jot down, so a blog seemed as good a place as any. Anyway, we've both been gaming in MMOs together on and off for, oh probably three or four years now. I'm sure you're right, it certainly seems to be infectious.

I hadn't found Potshot's or Gaff's blogs up until now, so thanks for the heads-up, as I've added them to my Reader list, and have enjoyed their articles.

I'm looking forward to TAGN's adventures in LotRO; I've just purchased the game myself, and I'm trying to convince Zoso that he needs to play this too.

Thanks for the comment!
