While it's true that things change, how would you feel if your BMW 7 Hybrid changed into 1991 Subaru Legacy Wagon? I'm betting you wouldn't be all that happy, especially if the reason your car transformed was because the BMW executives thought it would be for the better.
Last I played SWG (2 years ago?) you could level from start to max following one quest chain which pampers you more than your mother ever did, and if you were missing Trials of Obi-Wan (as I was) getting to max level was as difficult as becoming a Jedi pre-nge due to the complete and utter streamlining of the leveling process.
And why didn't I have Trials of Obi-Wan? You see after taking a long break from swg I decided to re-buy it when "SWG The Total Experience" came out. Three months after I bought "The TOTAL Experience" a new expansion was released and the game was completely changed for ever. Boy Sony sure does know how to treat the people that pay their salaries.
I especially love how much they hyped up the total experience so that they could lure in as many unsuspecting souls as possible before releasing another expansion and completely changing the game. I 'totally' got what I thought I was buying. Totally.
Also you sayt that they didn't change any items but you fail to take into account how many items were made useless. My house was full of various items ranging from quest rewards to crafted goods that became completely obsolete. Not to mention all the players who could no longer use their rare items because their new classes couldn't wear them.
Dec 14th 2009 7:31PM Every one talks about the 'vocal minority' but has any one given any thought to what the 'quiet majority' really consists of?
I personally quit WoW just under a year ago because I was apart of the vocal minority which was unsatisfied with the direction WoW has been heading since around half way through BC.
Those of us that are vocal in our opinions are a minority because those that choose to stay quiet are more often than not casual players and people that have a far simpler understanding of the game than the rest of us.
WoW has 12 million subscribers, and any one that has played WoW can tell you that the majority of people that play are 'noobs' by definition; people that play a couple times a week, people who have never touched an MMO before WoW, people that couldn't care less about patch notes, and children amongst other things.
You could radically change WoW, implement some New Game Enhancements that ruin the game (SWG any one ;] ) and the game would still have 6 or 7 million subscriptions, because frankly, the majority of players don't know shit all and don't care to know shit.
So then take away all those people that don't care or have no idea what they are talking about and I'm sure the 'vocal minority' wouldn't be such a small minority, if a minority at all.
People have talked about a WoW killer for ages, but no game can truly kill WoW since the majority of WoW players are casuals and people that only subscribed to WoW since it was so mainstream.

Nov 9th 2008 3:32AM All the 5% and the 1% wipes on Vashj will always have a special place in my heart, and I'll never forget the first time we got to phase 5 on kael or the deaf feeling in my ears on our first vashj and kael kills.

Sep 5th 2008 1:00PM It's great for people with multiple accounts but if you're playing the game 3x faster for the first time then you'll miss a lot of the leveling content and only see it when you run it on your main at max level.
And this will just make more noobs that wipe raids and 5 mans. :(
Aug 28th 2008 12:31PM "Does anyone who raids T5 or better even keep it on their action bar?"
Yeah, just for blood boil.
And I don't think I need to point out the fail in this article any more since the posts before me have done this quite well, but I will say that if any pve rogue thinks that the SnD glyph aint worth it compared to other glyphs then please go roll a warrior.
The SnD glyph, the rupture glyph and the SS glyph all appear like they are going to be mandatory for a raiding rogue, but with this being said keep in mind that we still have not seen all of the glyphs (or even half I would guess).
And on a side note can bliz please get a little more creative with rogues? These glyphs are practical but they don't do much to make this class more enjoyable.
