Aww man, loved the Garak character. :)

I am more often than not a guest player myself. Mostly because MMOs these days are just not interesting enough to keep me daily. Then that a man of 40 has other ideas of life as to spent daily 8+ hours in a MMO. Alas, since 20-something power gamers dominate most MMOs, there is little understanding for casual "guest gamers".

@Elikal

I would bet my next door neighbors house, not mine, that the casual gamers, as the less educated call us (i prefer Gamer myself) makes up the majority of the population in any game. We guest gamers spend what time we can, while those with less enviable goals or lives make up the guilds, guildmasters, raidguides, group guides etc in the games, the small skeletal network that comes to life when we appear ingame.

The comparison would be the hosts of a club or bar, very few folks, used to doing things over and over interacting with and entertaining huge numbers of folks rotating in and out of the world constantly. At least thats the way i look at it.
