I have yet to see Notser's video but I will weigh in nevertheless.
I started playing this game because I love ships. I will continue to play because I love ships.
I have made friends in this game that I want to play with, all the time. I would have never met them were it not for WoWs.
I know that I have a clan who love to play this game and wish to continue playing. I still have plenty of ships to grind, plenty of things to learn, more history to absorb, and more ships on the horizon.
The game is just a game, but the experience, now that's the real fun. No greater fun than getting into a several thousand ton vessal, armed to the teeth with guns and torpedoes, and go blast the heck out of other ships.
Thinking too much into a game is good at times, but don't forget it is only a game, the experiences you have and the friends you make on the other hand, that's what really counts.
You can bet that I will always be around, posting pictures, talking about a ship's history, general ship talking, etc.
Fair winds and following seas captains!
