Aug 31st 2010 8:16AM Absolutely! My (high to full pop) server feels almost empty at times, and it really feels like anyone with an IQ above 50 has vacated the premises. (What does that say about me? :P) The culture of the game always takes a nose dive between expansions, but this one seems particularly pointed.
I'm not "sick" of Cataclysm. I'm just so incredibly ready for it to be here. It isn't even my anticipation for the game itself so much as exactly what this post describes: a desire to get back to playing WoW.
Aug 30th 2010 8:32AM Tossing my hat in as an athiest who doesn't buy the concept of atheism extending to this kind of fictional universe. Even the average citizen in Goldshire or Razor Hill interacts with some form of magic if not daily, then on a fairly regular basis. Adventurers are always traipsing through their corn fields, slaughtering their livestock with the power of the Light.
Even if they are agnostics (in a sense), they have to concede the first hand evidence of some sort of supernatural element.
People make this mistake fairly regularly. They try to apply real world atheism and skepticism to a fictional environment where no such attitude would be reasonable. It's an interesting topic, though, and I genuinely hope it doesn't fall to the trolls. (Even atheists can be optimists, heh.)
Oh, and kudos for the Butcher and Pratchett references above!
