You simply CANNOT be The Unicorn. You CAN'T be that good and have THAT level of positivity.
Yes you can. And there are two way to become the Unicorn. The first way I have seen in over 500 days /played ONCE. 'The loveable idiot' become a professional. The process nearly broke me, I was so close to become a broken veteran from just watching this guy every evening in our raid, yet somehow he managed to become one day a Priest just as good, maybe even better than top25 raids. Mind you, he stayed the 'naive idiot' he just learned to play thru experience, hundreds of hours sunwell did this to him.
I am not sure if that was the catalyst or not, but at least it changed my attitude to the game and saved me from becoming a 'broken veteran'. Many of our raid full of professionals became later casuals, casuals that could still raid good enough to get 'Undying' in a random group in a raid that started past midnight spontaneous, and they spread this attitude that you can be professional and still casual. Casuals that would never let some friends down, casuals who did jump in after a phone call for top100 raider groups.
I believe in unicorns.
