    I stick around because I've been in involuntary commitment, so I have a lot of catching up to do. :)

    "my home" because it's the earliest and most familiar MMO to me.

    My answer's not up there. Didn't provide enough options.

    I like having an online game open, and every other game I've tried has been worse. I like fantasy-RPG style games, so anything that doesn't fit that won't do.

    Tha'd be "other".

    In my case. I've made friends, even though they are just text on my screen. I like to analyse and report on the jousting finals on my YouTube channel. I like to make tunage with Mabinogi's music system. I like showing new players, whom haven't learned how to fight, that they are stronger than they realized. There are a lot of folks, playing this game, who have issues with self confidence, I like trying to help them feel better about themselves.

    If you accept 'other' as an option, there would only need to be two.

    OMG that is sooooo the case for pretty much all of us. In my own case, I'm not too many events away from me exploding, with event crap. The funny thing is in the real world I'm not a hoarder, but in virtual worlds, I'm a slack-jawed twangin' A&E TV show just waiting to happen.

    Multiple of the above, but mainly because I'm a slowpoke, playing the game at the slowest pace out of anyone who has ever played. I started G11 last October and I've done maybe 3 quests in the storyline?

    to listen to a friend's music. Aaaand pretty much nothing else

    But in the modern day? Because there's nothing to look forward to in the morning. I automated all of my jobs and live alone and there's this lockdown stuff

    Yeah, same. I dunno if it's why I hang around, but Mabi brings out the worst hoarder in all of us.
