Blizzard Community Manager Lore recently posted a brief reply in an excellent thread, which brought up a topic I’ve wanted to address for some time: how it’s OK to suck sometimes. While I’m not going to copy his two posts here, he talks about arenas, discussing how, when he and his team lose, he looks back and tries to work out where things went wrong, and what he could have done to help. He also discusses the merits of doing things like recording matches, to replay and examine what went wrong.
While the option of recording your WoW play may not be open to everyone, self-examination is. And it’s something we can all afford to do. None of us ever play perfectly, we are not robots. But the key to becoming better is to admit that, to see our failings, and to improve upon them.
