Its that time of year again, school is out for all our youth and its time for them to get outdoors and explore. Far from our traditional past though where exploring the outdoors included activities like bike riding, swimming, camping, playing catch, and more, many of todays youth end up spending their summers exploring the outdoors online. About the only camping that goes on over the summer now is waiting on that rare spawn, and that isnt quite the same thing. Join Byron Messiah Mudry as he discusses how World of Warcraft has become the new summer camp for kids.
Despite being a crotchety old guy, the number of kids that appear online during the summer doesnt really bother me. There have been several in my guilds that despite being young were great players and could communicate intelligently and rationally. So no, just because a player is young, it doesnt bother me. Nor does the fact that the servers get busier bother me. In fact I like it, as it gives you more options with your alts, either leveling or raiding.
You can find all the details in the editorial on World of Summercraft.
