Mar 27th 2010 6:47AM I find WoW rather pointless these days. A few years ago, when I was still leveling, WoW was full of new things. There was always a new quest or a new area to be explored, sometimes with interesting people, too. Nowadays the game feels like a competitive teamsport to be mastered. Even though I cancelled my subscription two months ago, the articles on wow.com give me the same vibe: Most of them seem to be about getting better in the game, be they about raids, gear or PvP.
It just feels like pointless repetition, is all I'm saying.

Silly dwarves, jumping to conclusions like that...
Dec 14th 2009 8:58AM I don't think I like it as much as I expected. It's great to find groups quickly, but I enjoyed it when I had time to actually talk to the rest of the group. So far every random group I've been in goes mute when the instance begins and just steamrolls through the mobs. Then it's just "cya" and they leave the party. I'd much rather hear some funny comments, jokes and even tactics discussion during an instance.
Dec 13th 2009 1:30PM The results remind me of my home country's defense forces. All able-bodied men are conscripted at the age of 18, but women may volunteer. This leads to the fact that most of the women who volunteer are really motivated and interested in military service, and raise through the ranks to be officers. Therefore, I could surmise that the same is happening in MMOs: Even though there are less women playing, a larger percentage of them is very motivated and achievement-oriented, so I consider it no wonder that they are the new hardcore gamers.
Nov 11th 2009 3:05PM Yes, we were pretty much useless in the Battle, but it was most likely meant to be an event with dozens of players. When I experienced it, I was there with one other player, but if there had been say, 20 other players, I wouldn't have noticed the uselessness. I think that's also why they didn't make it an instance of its own.
