Dec 19th 2006 2:47PM Oh I am so glad I've quit this stupid game...
Dec 17th 2006 10:41PM What I want to know is how many of those 8 million are active subscribers? What do they classify as a subscriber? Since my account will still be registered, despite quitting.
I love all the whinging on here from people who aren't quitting. It's like someone has insulted their honor or something with their reaction.
I agree that folk that stomp around the forums saying "I'm quitting" are idiots, but to heap scorn on anyone quitting... Well people like you are another good reason to quit the game.
Dec 17th 2006 1:28AM There's only one good end-game in all of gaming.
And that's the one in Chess.
Dec 16th 2006 5:50PM I cancelled my account on Wednesday. Reason I'm still reading this site, ironically, is to see if there was any mention of all the people saying about quitting.
I've cancelled my account. My wife, who was far more hardcore than me, cancelled her account today as well. For us the honor nerf was the final straw, but speaking for myself, this has been coming for a while. The bigger reason for quitting is the fact that nothing ever happens in the world. Every day is the same. Blizz claim, when you choose content as the reason for cancelling, that the world is ever changing. That's a total crock.
I have no time for people who complain and keep paying, or even worse say they're going to quit, but don't. Have some balls and actually do it, or don't whine.
Dec 13th 2006 3:45PM Vlad: Actually I couldn't care less about honor items to be honest. But I've still cancelled my account. Reason being that this latest move from Blizzard is indicative of how bad they are at managing the game. I mean anyone with any brains new the patch would be a disaster, and the realms are still acting up.
Those of you who are annoyed, have the courage of your convictions and cancel your account. Even if you only cancelled it for a month, if enough people did that, Blizzard would take notice.
What amuses me is the fact that a lot of people bitch and moan about Blizz, but won't do anything about it. Why should Blizz listen or even care if you continue to open your wallet every month?
Nah, to hell with that. What with the fact NOTHING EVER CHANGES in Azeroth, and Blizzard seemingly hellbent on making the game even more tedious, I've got better things to spend my money on.
Dec 12th 2006 12:07AM I am literally on the edge of cancelling my account. What with the complete crap from the patch (why does my concussive shot from my gun now sound like a bow for example?) Blizzard are just not interested in changing anything up, making things interesting, or even allowing true creativity from it's players. Four hours to pull it off. Ten seconds to ruin it. Blizzard are pathetic.
The whiny bitches who take the game way too seriously and went whinging to a GM are a part of the problem as well and should be ashamed of themselves for being so pathetic.
About the only way I can see to turn things around is when you learn of something like this, is write to the GM's and say "This is awesome!" I mean they say people complained... Well unless the main body of players on WOW are sadder than I thought, then I would think it was only a small group whinging, and that most people thought it was very cool. I mean not one person here has said Blizz did the right thing.
Dec 10th 2006 10:32PM Omerta: No, not this specifically. Blizzard's attitude has been bugging me for a few months now. This incident is just one more in a long line of nonsense from Blizzard that stifles any sort of interesting random events in the world. Blizzard seem to be saying "This is our sandbox, and if you mess with it, we'll spank you." Bots, gold farming... Sure, spank those. But folk playing within the rules deserves kudos for creating interesting content in the absence of the damn games creator not doing a damn thing.
Everything stays the same. Nothing changes. Blizzard go out of their way to make the game as static as possible. Why does nothing ever happen? Because Blizzard don't care. You've got all these uber badguys, and what do they do? Sit in their dungeons all day doing nothing. Why does Teremus not wake up one day and say "Think I'll go barbecue some folk on Goldshire."
Nothing changes. Every stays the same. And Blizzard go out of their way to stifle players trying to be creative.
THAT is why I'm considering quitting.
Dec 10th 2006 9:00PM This is why I am seriously considering quitting WOW. A group of players get together and create an event that adds something to the game (it is called WARcraft after all), and the GM's kill it due to a bunch of whiny babies.
I am so sick of Blizzard's attitude toward things. NOTHING ever happens. When players actually take it upon themselves to make the world something other than a static event, they get spanked.
Pathetic, and a big part of why I'll most likely be cancelling my account.
Dec 2nd 2006 3:10PM randomguy: It's a "chore" writing full sentences? God you're pathetic! Don't want to type in proper English? Then get the HELL off an MMOG then you illiterate fool.
Anyone who uses u for you and all that gets immediately added to my ignore list, never to be removed until the next time the list is wiped. I'm a writer by profession and people like you disgust me. Your attitude stinks of complete laziness and disregard for those around you who you expect to read what you've typed. "I can't be bothered to express myself properly, but I expect you to listen." You make me sick.
The biggest problem with WOW is NOTHING EVER HAPPENS! One of the best times I ever had in WOW was the first time someone kited one of the dragons (forget which one) to SW. THAT was awesome. It was new, it was exciting, and I died many, many times, and loved every minute.
Blizzard are quite happy to sit on their asses and let the world stagnate. It should NOT be down to players to make interesting stuff happen. You've got all those bad guys out there. Why the hell, from time to time, can Teremus not get up one day and say "Think I'll go torch Stormwind."
Nothing ever happens. The scourge invasion would have been great, had Blizz not A) told us it was coming, and B) utterly cocked it up.
Nov 26th 2006 4:50PM I've been married almost ten years now to a woman I met on Usenet back in early 1996. She was in Canada, I was in England.
So forgive me for yawning at this. I WISH we'd had WOW back then. All it was for us then was email and crappy UNIX talk programs.
