As a player with multiple 80s who has seen most of the content in WoW, and had the opportunity to raid and quest and gain achievements and do dailies until I'm kind of tired of that stuff, another zombie invasion type event sounds kind of fun.-->BUT, I was new to WoW and only level 20ish when the wrath pre-event stuff started, and I almost didn't survive as a player. That was the most miserable time, and I was suddenly feeling some pretty heavy buyer's remorse for the 3 months I had just pre-paid. When that was going on, this game sucked for me and other low-level players. There was no way to play - at all. And we didn't have the frame of reference to know what was going on, or why. There was absolutely nothing fun about it. It was like griefers suddenly had a license to do their best to make it impossible to play. You know how some people get, when hidden by the anonymity of the internet. Look at the way people talk on the forums or trade-chat. We aren't all like that, but too many are, and they, unfortunately, take advantage of that in these situations, which could, otherwise, be fun. In effect, I paid for 2 or 3 weeks of playtime when I was unable to play, at a time when I was not experience enough to know that it wouldn't always be like that.Now, I am looking forward to a change of pace, which is what I heard so many other experienced players say at the time. But I think some protection for low-level toons needs to be in place if something like that happens again, or, at the very least, an explanation to new players of what is going on and why and that it won't last long. You may have thought that was obvious, but to me, at that time, it was not.
