Jun 12th 2009 2:20AM Mount changes to make is easier. Making Heroics easier. Constant nerfing of raids to make easier. Blizzard must be starting to hurt because all their changes to mainstream and get more money is starting to bite them. Just found out 3 more of my friends that started when the game came out in 04 have quit now. The next change will be the name of WoW. World of Face-craft? Maybe World of MySpace-craft? In the way its going, the next xpac will be a social network with game added and raids are done for you. The only reason for gear is to play dress up with your "doll" while talking in Dalaran or what ever the next new social networking town will be.
Jun 7th 2009 7:20PM Oh to the hours spent in AV, pre-cross realms! Couldn't wait to get home from work, get some good dinner, then to battle! Those were some good times. Being a rogue (special OPs) was the best. And the battle with Korak the Bloodrager!
Jun 7th 2009 7:12PM Agreed. That was one thing I liked about BC. You had to run those heroic instances (that were a lot tougher than heroic [5 man] instances now) a lot. Remember a time just about every profession had to farm for new recipes?
Jun 7th 2009 7:00PM Blizzard made it so people that wanted a fast console like game, got one now. I don't see WoW as the time consuming game as it used to be and to some, that's great. But for the millions that joined, that's what they liked. I have been seeing people I have ran with and raided with leave the game left and right. There is only 2 guilds that are really raiding now and for 25 mans it has been mostly are pugs. Even for Ulduar 25 man. RL friends and ingame ones are leaving because they are bored and guilds are not staying together like it was in old WoW and even BC. That is bad for those that cannot go out a buy a new game or WoW is their cheap entertainment because friends is what makes the game fun. I feel bad for those just starting the game because they cannot even get help most of the times. Someone I work with told me that he hasn't been on for a while because he gets bored trying to run some heroics and spends an hour or more with either no pugs or the ones he ran with saved him in a half done instance after they broke up because people just left. He has been in 3 different guilds and each one that was starting to do good, people leave and the guild breaks apart. That has been in a months time. I think Blizzard shot themselves for the sake of more customers and money.
I hate to admit it but the things that made me hate and break from the game (rep grind, gear grind, attunements, etc.), made the game worth coming back to.
May 5th 2009 2:44PM The biggest problem with the Pure vs Hybird theory is the fact it will NEVER be happy either way. Hybrids were FORCED into healing endgame and THAT WAS ALL. Even though hybrids had 2 other good specs, healing is all PURE class guilds would see in a hybrid. So yes, I am happy to see hybrids have their day. This will always be a fight as WoW is around. But I will agree on one thing... CC and kiting used to be a big part of the game than it is now so those classes that were best for that (mages, hunters) are going the boot. The constain nerfing of the game for one button, I don't have time to really play WoW, console players is what will end WoW.
May 5th 2009 12:48PM Well, the "Daily Chores" one screwed me out of the drake. I have been sick a couple days and then I come back to get the Children's Week done only to find out that you have to do 1 daily a day for 5 DAYS with your kid with you. GG Blizz. So, now I don't care about the stupid drake because I was not able to be on the game for everyday. IMO, that is worse than the dumb PvP part (which is pretty dumb as well.)
Nov 12th 2008 11:09AM BIG BEAR! BIG BEAR CHASE! BIG BEAR CHASE ME!
Nov 12th 2008 12:13AM It really wasn't a big big deal. Its good to get away from the game and the computer in fact. Let them fix the problem than rush fixing and having more problems. Its a video game, not my utilities or food/drink or life blood. So for me, realms are what again?
Oct 21st 2008 11:08AM Its a weird feeling being Ret now.
I have a 70 of every class but warrior. I was doing the Hallow's End Southshore egg and bombing with my lock and mage and the Alliance swarmed like bees. I go with my Ret paladin... nothing. They just watch me walk in, let me egg the keg, stink up the place and ride out, waving at them. I felt so weird and just had to laugh.
