10 things that longtime WoW player and MMO Hub writer Kyle Stallock hates about his favorite MMORPG, World of Warcraft.
As a Horde player, I'm going to have to disagree with number 10. I also can't believe that "annoying kids and gold sellers" weren't on the list. Then again, it's probably hard to limit it at 10 things when you've been playing the game since launch. Awesome game, but it has its problems just like any other.
a horde member, all my characters where horde except my night elf (which I ditched for a blood elf), but now I am wow clean for months...Yay!
I like the Horde and the Alliance but got bored of that game a few months ago after i was 80 xD lol
Why? Because my mature 13-year-old sister would be thoroughly insulted by even more anti-youth sentiment in online gaming.
1-10: It's WoW.
1. If loot wasnt important, game would be to easy, anyone could just do everything while naked. 2. Its dated graphics because blizzard is trying to keep the people who have outdated computers, it allows everyone to play not just a select few like age of conan did. 3. I agree with you on that one. But what else is there to do? 4. A profession is not ment to be "fun" its ment to be used in assisting the player in some way. 5. This shouldn't even be on the list. It has nothing to do with anything about the game. 6. I agree on that one, shamans like myself have no good place in pvp anymore, but its not everything. 7. If a look of a character bothers you. Well then im sorry, but thats just a pathetic reason to hate WoW. 8. Why does that even bother you? Seriously do you like just going around and looking at people in town, or are you here to play? 9. In a way its a good thing. It shows they are listening to players and care enough about players to look into a "problem" or whatever and see what they can do to resolve it. To me it just seems like your the one whining that you didnt save any honor before hand and are pissed cause people who play more then you did the work for it. 10. Do you even know what Warcraft is about?
I mostly agree with all of this article. Such a great game to start ruined by blizz. Sad really.
WoW was at its best when it was new, vanilla wow had a depth to it. The story was great, the raids pretty awesome, the classes even balanced. World pvp was fun and a guild weekly activity. With each expansion things go more to the gray. Wow is losing the vibrancy it used to have. I still play it, do my dailies daily to support my raiding addiction..damn u ulduar. There is always games coming out suppose to be wow killers, wow is wow, it's fan base is huge and it will continue to be a force in the mmo world for a while to come. Personally I am looking to play aion and leave wow, it bothers me that i'm playing a social game and all chat channels are turned off to avoid the high lvl's of douche baggery that floats around in chat. Wow is the popular game at the moment and (at least in my realm) there are more obnoxious asshats then ever, wow won't be taken over by another mmo, blizzard will kill it all on their own.
yup bc killed wow for me. the death of the epic 40 mans and the rise of dailys everywhere.... game lost its sense of scale
I think that Star Wars TOR will be the next amazing MMO. It will be the first that I really get into. Cant wait.
They just better have the same depth of character customization as Star Wars Galaxies.
I agree with Panthers and may i add something extra. Star Wars TOR will be the definitive MMO which will remove a hefty number of players from the WOW because lets face it, the game has lost its way over the years and frankly i will be more than happy to return to the PC-MMO scene just because the game is made by bethesda who to me are one of the most innovative companies in this decade. Im not saying that Blizzard is bad in making games or anything but as a gamer (First), story-lover (Second) and consumer (Third) im glad that Star Wars TOR will try to mess with Blizzard's monopoly over the MMO scene because money has obviously rotted their brain cells.
sorry meant bioware and not bethesda.
"In a medieval fantasy MMORPG full of Mages, Paladins who call upon the Light to aid them in battle, and brutal plate-wearing Warriors, an alien race called the "Draenei" crash-landed their spaceship on an island located far off the Western coast of Kalimdor." They're no more an alien race than little green men called Orcs and it's not a space ship for goodness sakes. Opening a portal to another world and letting the Orcs in is all fine and dandy but using a ship to cross that same barrier for lack of any other method is just "wrong"? The Draenei were desperate. Essentially on the verge of being wiped out by the Burning Legions or agents of it they saw getting across to Azeroth and working with one of the factions that had actually beat the Burning Legion twice as their best and probably only option. Besides, Draenei are awesome.
That really bumed me out...i joined a server...then my friends joined another server...and there i was alone... Then my server was so ahead of me (lack of balance) tht i had to do most of it alone, until it became possible. Got boring fast....havent touched it in a year, and never will My friend however flunked the last year of school and had to stay behind for a year to re-do it...
