Why You Should Play World of Warcraft

Is it too late for new players to Jump into the epic 'World of Warcraft'? Should current players still give it the time of day?

Played it for like 6 years... Tired of it now lol. Sorry, but the game changed way too much. It's all about what gear you have now and less about strategy and teamwork. Not to mention that gave rise to a lot of people who think they're better than you, yet don't know simple terminology when it comes to raids/instances. Blah... Fudge that man. I'll go back when the game returns to its previous form that was actually good.

Agreed. I'm still playing, but I'm on my way out, after I get my main to 90. I just want to finish up questing in Pandaria. It's pandered too much to the general public, and is too dumbed-down.

WOTLK was the last expac I bought. Almost did 1025man ICC HC, but kept getting too many noobs, vets who thought after they got all their gear, that they could skip raids and of course, the gquitters that leave after getting a specific up or ups.

Game is dead to me.

im tired of WoW I have been a hardcore WoW player for over 6 years now and its tiring. I used to play around 10 hours per day but now I barely log on anymore.

WoW had a great run but I see no use in coming back to WoW as a whole anymore due to the lack of innovation and the constant level grinding is just not fun.

I'll play when they decide not to charge more than the actual game itself...

Also, to those that approved this, remember that: "Personal blogs do not qualify as a legit source for opinion pieces unless the author is an industry professional."

This obviously isn't written by an industry professional.

You forget that it also has to represent the majority opinion of N4G. If that's the case, then it doesn't ever matter WHO wrote it or HOW well thought out it is. As long as people can agree with it.

Several big things are on their way out right now because the generation they relied on are getting older and want something different. WoW is one of them.

The problem is actually the opposite of what people think. People are saying its too casual now. In reality, they catered way too much to the vocal forum minority and made any progression and reward an extreme time consuming hassle. You have to do dailies for weeks to get rep to get gear, but then on top of that you need enough VP for the gear. Too many barriers that only the most hardcore and addicted player can obtain. Thats why a lot of people are quitting now.
darkpower  +   475d ago
Yeah. All Blizz has to do is to not listen to that vocal elitist minority that thinks that hard means time consuming and tedious work that doesn't prove anything in terms of skill.

Thing is, they keep doing that (they did the same with Cata and look what happened) and continue to think so stubbornly and mischaracterizing what the arguments about their decisions actually are. Doing that gets us nowhere fast.

But also keep in mind that Blizz claimed that a LOT of those lost subscribers came from China, which means there could be a good bit of gold sellers in that bunch that got busted. That'll definitely take a bite out of the subscriber numbers.

I remember having a ton of fun playing vanilla WoW, even hopped back in for awhile for BC, but I can't have any fun if I try to play it now.

I used to love leveling up and seeing the new areas for my level range, but questing is a joke now, no one does it. Judging for what I saw in a free trial back in WOTLK everyone just sits around in a major city and queues up for instances to get to raid levels, and THEN you can start actually doing stuff.

I'm going to sound like an old man when I'm saying this but I liked it a lot better when you had to gather your own group and travel to the instance. It wasn't as convenient, but the effort it took to put together a group and travel to the destination provided a sense of accomplishment that I just don't feel with the current system of queuing up and being teleported into the instance once matched.

I have a lot of good memories of WoW, but I doubt I'll ever be able to get back into it.

I also have been a very dedicated gamer, aswell as pvp and pve since TBC.

I totally agree with Hydralysk and plenty of other comments here, wow is just not the same and I really dislike that's it's all about gear and that any random player could obtain the same gear as someone very dedicated to the game.

It's just much too casual and eventually too boring to keep on playing.

What i'm wondering though, what games do you guys play instead of WoW? I've been trying GW2 and D3 allong with some other games but I can't stick to any of them.
