Honestly, I don't really think they expected to keep it on life support this long.. but if the cow still has a lil milk left in her, why not try to make money on it, I guess.

I'm not ashamed to say I had fun playing WoW back when I did. I started at the end of vanilla, just before BC. I tried to hang through Wrath, took a break, and burned through Cata in a couple days and was saddened by how easy they made everything. Still, there were good times at some point. Those times won't come back, however. I mean, you gain a level for spelling your own name correctly now Roll

They had a lot of things they could of done with the game after Wrath. Cata could have been made better. I still don't understand how Pandas got voted up over the Emerald Dream and the rest of the lore that got benched, but /shrug.

As for EVE.. I seriously don't see CCP following in Blizzard's footsteps. Hell, I'd expect them to completely remove CONCORD and all notion of Highsec before they followed Blizz into EZ-mode game models.

I've gone back and played WoW like 4 tmes now. The guy who introduced me to EvE also played WoW so he dragged me into that one too (and a few other games like LoL and WoT, he's a game whore lol).

I tried several different paths and some of the experience was cool, it just didn't hook me, even after I got my 1st mount or finally was able to turn into a bear and tank some stuff lol. I wasn't into PnP warcraft either so no surprise I couldn't fall in love with WoW. Not a bad game if you are into that stuff.

I'm really just not into MMOs, which is one reason why EVE (the "anti-mmo" mmo) really appealed to me I think.

Vanilla to '09 (no idea what one that was, cata?) just got too easy I couldn't play it any moer. They destroyed pvping until it was just who had the best gear and all quick games...used to love my 12 hour valley of alterac, pushing the horde back for them to come back and pushing us back, calling out to the server to get more people in etc etc...

Nope, now its wowkemon and how pretty can I make my cartoon toon...

Heirlooms, those ******* went so far in ruining the game for me. "Oh, look, my lvl12 rogue just out-tanked your 19 warrior -_-

A little trust goes a long way. The less you use, the further you'll go.

You must not have done much PvP in vanilla. People in raid epics were laying waste to the majority that only had greens and blues. Or maybe you had the epics so it was all skill?

My greatest moment was beating a guy in a rogue 1v1 who had the full bloodfang set, and i was in about half greens and blues. His teammates rode past thinking he didn't need help. Even though it was rough as hell back then, i probably enjoyed that single moment more than anything else in my entire time playing that game.

My experience with the game was like this; kill five wolves in some forest, get bored, uninstall and move on with my life.

I kill kittens, and puppies and bunnies. I maim toddlers and teens and then more.

Played it for 8 years. I even run a Guild

But I've been feeling less drawn to it. Things are too easy and constrained nowadays.

Flying mounts just made the world feel smaller and epics mean nothing any more.


I don't think the game itself declined. We just got bored of it.

There are very few changes that I don't consider and improvement in itself. Less grindy quests. better skill system and so on.

The very sun of heaven seemed distorted when viewed through the polarising miasma welling out from this sea-soaked perversion, and twisted menace and suspense lurked leeringly in those crazily elusive angles of carven rock where a second glance shewed concavity after the first shewed convexity.

Though I have not played it in ages so who knows, I'd assume not many changes there, but then again assumptions are the first step on a path to ruin.


Well, there haven't been people in Silvermoon since Cataclysm (everyone and everything is in Orgrimmar now), so that part is incorrect but everything else is about right.

MoP really killed my interest in to the game, havent played it since the launch really. The story doesn't really interest me one bit, which is the main reason I played the game. Like others I really used to like the game and even though probably this is partly nostalgia goggles, the game was at it's height during TBC. Wrath was still a decent expansion bringing conclusion to the Arthas storyarc from WC3, but it has been going downhill from there. Yeah, yeah, that's what everyone else says too.

Outdoor PvP also gave me some of the most memorable moments in the game, but that is also almost completely dead.

Any players here, is it worth playing? What is there to do in it?

This is a serious thread btw.


1) Possibly.

2) No, it really isn't. The game has devolved to accommodate the lowest common denominator of gamers.

3) I don't know as I haven't seriously played in several years. Every now and then I'll install and fire it up. Usually about half an hour later I uninstall due to boredom and annoyance with other players.

sounds like you didn't lose much. Pick yourself up and get a real woman.
