Gawd, I love WOTLK!The best thing about it? That it makes "hardcores"QQ (they remind me of the white people who couldn't stand seeing Tiger Woods or the Williams sisters take over their sports.) And I just love seeing nincompoops get angry! Keep it up Blizzard!When those people who push a couple of buttons and slide a mouse around consider themselves athleeets, they just make me laugh. Oh no, they wail, this is NOT a game! This is srs bzns! Please, take your case to Sierra Mist or Xbox... because your peers have stopped buying it. I wonder what would happen if some other game came along to assuage their inflated sense of self importance? I suspect WoW would become even better!Look, I pay quite a bit of money for Blizz to assuage MY sense of self-importance! I'm not gonna shell out my monthly subscription to hopelessly grind away my life, eke out a tiny shred of reputation, while never expecting to see a significant portion of the world I've paid to enter. If that rubs you the wrong way, great! Take your subscription somewhere else and leave a little more room for my fun.I've been thinking hard recently about the times I had half as much fun as I have been having in Northrend. Hot-footing it through the Barrens? Looking for that last pylon in Un'Goro? Bombing Forge Camps in Ogri'la? Nothing comes close to the professions, quests, dungeons, mats, loot, epics, battlegrounds and raids in WOTLK. Sorry, but you know it is true.Hit 80 a month ago, and I am finally clearing out my Storm Peaks quests -- then on to Icecrown. I expect to be discovering places and people for a very long time -- even if the next patch doesn't drop for months more. No longer do I wonder what I can do when I am only going to be logged for a n hour or so. No longer am I faced with soul-crushing boredom waiting for a PUG. I am happier with WoW than I ever have been, and I suspect there re millions more just like me.Thanks Blizz!
