One of the main reasons I cancelled my account after being a wow addict since 2005. The playerbase is a joke. Good riddance.

Unlike the angels on xbox live, psn, the internet and every other mmo

@ Antti1) is the Xbox a mmo or a games console you can play solo?2) are you forced to rely on 4-24 others to play the games on other systems?3) the OP did not say he played ANYTHING else, let alone other MMO's - so why the sarcy response?

I don't think he's necessarily wrong, though. It isn't uncommon to find groups with griefers. bots, people spamming autoatack, etc. While most groups are moderately bearable, they still aren't as social as I think they should be. And yes, XBL and PSN don't have very good online communities because they don't have to be; running around the map with Commando Pro and Marathon on requires only so much teamwork, compared to the average heroic. Yet you still quite commonly see groups out there for most normals and some heroics with groups that refuse to say a word.So is a quiet community consisting of people you would never see again better than one that's loud and rowdy that you'll also never see again? Just food for thought.

Yeah, same here.I too cancelled my account and one factor was indeed current playerbase.Matters were even worse than with average player since I only played during latenight hours and every rudeness you can think of was repeated tenfold during those times. No fun.Stella, I too keep on eye on matters of the game that I played for years.. nothing wrong in that.

Did it start with stopping PUGing first then quitting the game altogether? Cause I know a lot of people at the "won't PUG" stage. I'm at it, myself but I haven't quit yet. Once I complete all the dailies and get bored with BGs , I can see me moving on from a game I never thought I'd quit. And I blame the asshats.It's not Blizzard's fault. I see no way to control asshats and their behavior in a fair way. So the asshats win.

I'm a quitter. I come back and read articles like this because it helps keep the rose-colored glasses off my head. Community still sucks? Grinding still a flimsy mask for a lack of content? I guess I remain a quitter for this patch.
