Depends~ If you have no responsibilities or life commitments and log in for almost the whole day everyday, then I'd most definitely consider you "hardcore". However though, I'd also say your hardcore, even if you have a lot going on, if when playing you take playing it very cereal and know how to use your time and what not. Someone like me. I play 3-4 hours on weekdays (sometimes I skip days if I'm too busy), and then a good bit on weekends but never all day. Also, when I play, I take PvE and PvP very causally (as in I'm typically not in a rush to complete either), as I'd rather focus on stuff like crafting, housing, and collecting vanity stuff. Though pretty sure you'll get a different opinion from everybody about that.
