If your neither a Hardcore player nor a Casual World of Warcraft (WoW) player, then exactly what are you and what category are you?
I'm not a Hardcore player. Yet neither do I play WoW casually. I log at least minimum 30 hrs a week just thinking. Yet I don't consider myself a Raider either and though Epics are nice I'm not all crazy for them either. When I'm playing in game its all about consistently and progressively playing my main character daily for improved gear, quest fun and improving faction reputations. I spend more calculated time reading WoW blogs of other good players that play my specific Class and WoW more so than some casual players actually play the game itself.
I have a few alts but I have no love for playing alts it just does not appease me to play any of my few alts which are all barely level 20. Alts I just use them as banking depository. I enjoy playing my Paladin. I guess in playing my Paladin main character its a commitment to "Galo" whenever I do play to be consistently progressing my character in some way. Yet the question remains..... what definition do you give to a character if your neither Hardcore or Casual?
I think I remember it was Tobold on his blog says their are two kinds of people that play WoW. What category exactly am I? By what metric you define just exactly what makes a player Hardcore, Casual or Other (Progressive Players) Maybe?
