Cataclysm will be underwhelming. Blizzard artists are under an incredible amount of pressure from the CEO boys, now. It's make money or GTFO. I'm very surprised they're willing to wait until next Fall to release it, rather than this Spring.The truly sad thing is they see WoW as a sinking vessel and are putting less and less (Read: Strickland and the A team are now on a new project) into WoW, despite the fact it makes so much money. The only thing I can summize is that the cost of updating the game across the board graphically is not worth it, and it's very sad.

What is your evidence for this?Plus I like the game how it is now "graphically" if I wanted a game that will more than likely crash, or that you can't play on a laptop, I would go for Aion, or something like it.Also, Blizzard knows how to make money, its clearly going to keep making money of WoW and its derivatives for some time to come, so why not enjoy it?Also, though I do think that the head of Activision is a grade A Douchebag with the same amount of wit, charisma and people skills as that of a head louse he is not going to be interfering in this game all too much, its too big for one man to make it fail.

@Josef"Also, though I do think that the head of Activision is a grade A Douchebag with the same amount of wit, charisma and people skills as that of a head louse he is not going to be interfering in this game all too much, its too big for one man to make it fail."Underestimating Kotick is a dangerous way to go.

WoW isn't truly sinking imo.It's just turning into the Wii of MMORPGs - dumping the hardcore/highly devoted players off of the boat so that they can get potentially more players by appealing to a wider, more casual audience. I don't think it'll ever truly be dead, and tbh I don't want it to die. I'm totally fine with it being the most populated MMORPG and whatnot. Why? Because that means there'll be less morons/immature idiots on the MMORPG(s) that I play instead of WoW :)

Not really.From my experience, that logic is just wishfull thinking. The morons/immature idiots to balanced people ratio is quite steady across the board, often tipping more towards morons in a game populated mainly by very devoted players...I mean, just look at darkfall. Christ, I only met one nice guy in that game, and he was a goon...To be honest, the thing that always seems a little weird to me, is that in my five years of WoW, I've only met a handfull of people that really were "morons/immature idiots". Yes there are a few bad apples hanging around in trade, but many of those have actually been quite funny and often intelligent (although attention craving) people in despite of their apparent "immaturity".Also, I can only remember meeting two REAL douchebags in my time in WoW. I've heard of many, but i've only directly witnessed two genuine cases of pure and through grade a+ douches.Perhaps I just don't take a habit of judging people...
