Default Blizzard Community Blues

I'm loving Legion and enjoying the rest of Blizzard's games lately.

As far as the community is concerned, I feel out of place. Old. Everywhere I look on Twitter I see younger people that I don't really fit in with. Even the Blizzard staff look fresh out of high school to me now. Their topic of conversation is also typically difficult for me to relate to. Am I getting too old for the Blizzard community? Does anyone else feel a shift compared to even a few years ago? I know part of that is social media in general (I don't understand how to use Snapchat, even though I tried a few times), but it's all a bit jarring to me.

One thing that's good is that when I play WoW and group up with people I can mostly relate. It's mostly on Twitter, forum posts, and outside the game community stuff that I feel totally out of place. Thoughts?

It means you are a level headed individual who should avoid social media at all costs. Follow artists for their works if you want but ignore opinions/discussions as they're both cringy and poisonous.

Thanks, Smoke. You just made me realize that I fit in here just fine and this is part of the Blizzard Community *hug*

Maybe I'll lay off Twitter and whatnot, it's a mess in there.

Twitter is absolutely cancerous, nothing to do with WarCraft itself, it's just the very nature of Twitter.

Avoid at all costs.

How old are you, because I feel as if you're exaggerating.

Get busy changing, or get busy dying.

I'm only 30. I've been married for 7 years and have two children... so that's ages me a bit I guess compared to the average 30.

I guess I'll get busy dying.

This is sound advice. I'm early 30's as well and I largely avoid social media. Feel much better off for it.

But I'm also in this weird situation where nearly everyone I hang out with IRL is 5+years older than me and nearly everyone I hang out with online with the exception of two people I've been gaming with since the late 90's is 5+ years younger than me.

My actions will sometimes reflect the image of someone who is younger due to me allowing things to build up and me losing my shit and lashing out like a younger individual.
