Nov 4th 2011 9:58AM The cinematic and nearly everything about WOTLK felt to me like LOTR, I wanted to give my DK, my only male toon, an LOTR name but everything good was taken, so I ended up with Mordohr. My Mage and my Druid, their names I got from one of my favorite books, Things Fall Apart, Egwugwu and Chielo.
I've since cancelled my sub but I still have dreams of a little pink-haired creature blinking and jumping around in her rocket boots.
Oct 21st 2011 6:17PM When rumors about Mists of Pandaria surfaced, I dismissed it, thinking it was just a joke.
I had recently unsubscribed, but I planned to resub when the next expansion would be released, because for some reason, I was expecting that the next expansion would be infinitely better than Cataclysm. And I don't really want to play SWTOR, although I've considered it.
Instead we get pandas and an expansion that makes me think of food, specifically bread, Pandaria sounds like panaderia. Maybe the developers loved Jack Black in Kung Fu Panda, I don't know. I like the movie, too. But I never thought I'd relive it in my MMORPG. I don't think I want to.
I guess I was hoping that the developers and designers would look beyond Hollywood and pop culture for inspiration. There are so many possible storylines for WoW, lost worlds, other dimensions, parallel universe, alternate realities, the possibilities are infinite, the only limits are imagination, talent, skill, creativity and the audacity to go for something new, bold and ambitious. But I guess I'm wrong about the people who work at Blizzard, maybe I have Apple in my mind. Anyway, thanks, Blizzard, I had 5 good years of fun, and adventure!
Oct 10th 2011 4:04PM Haven't played since July cause playing on my desto lock hasn't been fun. But I put off canceling my account because I had hoped that 4.3 would bring significant changes to the spec that would make it fun again. As it is, I guess I'm done. Five years of WoW, time to say goodbye, I guess. So, here it is: goodbye WoW, hello SWTOR.
Sep 1st 2011 11:53AM WoW is the only MMO I ever played and walking into Stormwind for the very first time, made me feel like I was walking into Gondor, the city of kings, I was struck by its beauty, its grandeur, and I had never seen so many players all at once.
But my favorite moment of all my WoW playing days was when our little guild finally killed the Lich King. We set out on what we all thought was an impossible task, but we kept at it and we did it. Our group picture with the LK dead still puts a big, fat grin on my face. :D
Aug 31st 2011 10:56AM When I first started playing back in BC, I was such a noob, it took me a long, long time to leave the NE starting zone, what with getting lost, getting stuck, and falling into the Veiled Sea. I spent so much time there, that I never, ever want to go back. Never did get any NE past lvl 20.
Aug 8th 2011 11:46AM I've been thinking about this article as I was driving to work this morning, and the more I thought about it the heavier my heart felt cause I know my time with WoW is nearly over.
Towards the end of Wrath, and the accompanying hype for Cata, my boyfriend and I were so excited -- he got a new computer, new monitor, new keyboard, I had mine upgraded so we would be ready. I pre-ordered online but we went at midnight to Best Buy, waited out in the cold to get him a copy. On the way home, he had a brainwave, he said, "what if Cata is the expansion that breaks the game?"
It may not be the expansion that breaks WoW, but for my boyfriend, it was the expansion that made him quit. Queue for 30 minutes for a Heroic, things would go haywire, and in this expansion before everyone was out-gearing them, things did go wrong really fast, the healer and tank would ragequit, and as DPSers, you'd be back in the queue. You get a heroic or a raid mechanic wrong, and the whole night is a bust. And as epic as the changes in Azeroth were -- the quests and the lore didn't quite make up for the painful grind that is Cata heroics. My boyfriend played less and less, and finally, last June, cancelled his sub and recently pre-ordered the big game that's supposed to be out sometime later this year.
I'm still hanging on, but barely. I waited for Firelands, I did the Thrall quest chain, which wasn't bad by itself, but the dialogue was like something out of a really bad Hollywood B movie, and then I tried to start the Molten Fire dailies, but I couldn't because apparently I had to do Hyjal first, and I just couldn't bring myself to do that. As for raiding, well, I had such a hard time with heroics, that I totally lost confidence in my mediocre skills as a raider and have stopped joining our guild raids. So here I am, fading away slowly -- haven't logged on my main in a very long time and last Saturday, I actually deleted the lvl 47 rogue that I had created when I first started playing. The thing is, there are still so many things I want to do, achievements I have yet to do, I'd plan to log, but would get caught up in other stuff. I guess as other comments have stated, life goes on and people do move on, and while I have been delaying the inevitable, I know that eventually I will say goodbye to WoW. But not yet.
