OP  4/24/12 7:47:52 PM#1

I am sorry to envoke whitney hutton here but I heard this song and I realized no other mmorpg has given me that one moment in time feeling like WoW has. Especially pre BG WoW. When people took pride in their faction choose, when you either wore red, or if you didnt wear red.

 

When you were just a level 15, venturing around the barrens, trying to turn in your quest, but as you look in the distance a army of alliance players march to the barrens cross-roads, you knew you had no chance taking them on, and you heard the alert going off that the crossroads was being attacked, horde npcs every where, the low level defenders scattered and dismayed, things looking hopeless...

but then you hear the for the horde, looking in the distance, from level 20 to level 60, whether running or on their mounts, whethering still wearing greys or decked in purples, they marched together and defended the cross roads, the battle raging for hours, until the alliance were pushed back to astrannar, pushing them back, astranaar defenses holding strong, but we wont stop until we strike moonrunner. The defenses still hard, we push back but more and more horde soldeiers falling.

recruits coming from splinter tree post to help out, but coming from two roads surrounding us was more back up of alliance players, a front row of hunters striking us down with their guns, mage aoes every where, warlocks dropping down their pets.

 

THIS WAS WAR PEOPLE THIS WAS REAL WORLD PVP. DONT LET ANY ONE TELL YOU ANY DIFFERENT, THIS WASNT THAT AGE OF CAMLOT ISH, THIS WASNT THAT UO ISH, THIS WAS THAT WORLD OF WARCRAFT WORLD PVP, YOU EITHER ENLISTED IN TM/SS WAR OR THE XROADS/ASHENVALE WARS.

 

GOD I WOULD DO ANYTHING TO BRING BACK VANELLA PRE BATTLETGROUND WOW. YOU PEOPLE DIDNT KNOW HOW GOOD YOU HAD IT, THEN YOU RUINED IT, WOW WAS A SANDBOX/THEME HYBRID NOW ITS JUST A  MCDONALDS/DISNEYLAND HYBRID.

YOU ALL RUINED WORLD OF WARCRAFT, I HATE YOU ALL A ND I WONT GIVE UP UNTIL VANEILLA WOW IS BACK, NOMATICS NEVER GIVES UP, NOMATICS NEVER FORGETS. VANEILLA WILL NEVER DIE, THATS A TRUE GAMERS MMORPG, YOU WANNA STAY WITH YOUR THEMEPARKS, WELL YOU CAN STAY WITH THEM FOREVER, WE GON  BURY YOU THERE.

I, too, am a fan of whitney hutton, and I believe this post could be one of our civilization's greatest achievements. Bravo good sir.

I can't help but feel sorry that this is your alamo for what an MMO should be. I'm sorry, but Barrens PvP where you can completely choose not to PvP (because it's a Horde area after all) seems so insignificant.

 

 

On a side note, the only reason no one will ever capture what WoW did is because they had first mover advantages. It's like saying "will no soda beverage ever be able to outdo Coke?" The answer is a resounding, "No". It's all a matter of being the first into a market - Take a business class or two and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Except that WoW wasn't the first MMORPG on the market.

I daresay Everquest  back in 1999 did a very good job of "capturing that one moment in time" very well for me.  I still recall the mainstream media publicly debating the merits and flaws associated with "Evercrack," with stories coming out of people losing their jobs and their families because of their "addiction" quite frequently.  Even Rush Limbaugh got in on the action.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

WoW is the only MMO that captured that one moment in time for me.  That momemt being, when I felt my braincells dying at the horror of a game and community they were enduring.

GTFO with this garbage. Who cares what rush limbaugh did. Everquest stopped becoming evercrack when World of MaryJane was released.

For me, it would be Rift's beta events.

 

Man that was epic. War was everywhere. we were overrun with mobs of NPC destroying everything in their path. also the Bosses use to wander around. So there were bigg fights. the invaders wasnt just elite NPC. they were boss elites. scary stuff as a low level. the only time I felt that again was when Ember Isle was introduced for the first time. Total Epic. the fights were harsh....

No what?  Are you saying he played a different beta and experienced this?  [Mod Edit]

Not sure how zerg fests and random server crashes/fps lag was considered fun or even good World PVP but sure. WoW has never really had good world PvP and never will. And i did play WoW from the start, was the first priest to 60 on Horde side Chromagus, next up was Remy. I even remember me and a 50+ warrior named Jovan being the only two over 50 for about a week, and grouping with low 40's in Marudon when that was the best instance because BRD was a messy pull and bugged and Upper BR was still closed. Yep, those days. When the best achievement was getting that dam fishing pole. When raiding Rag was freaking hard and long taking days to clear. Now that's all a blur. But honestly I had better pvp in DaoC in 1v1 duels or in Frontier. Oh well, memories........

Sigh MMORPG.COM frequentors and their absolute dedication to semantics. Again, take a business class or two and you'll know what I'm talking about. It's not about being the 'first', it's about being one of the first to do it right.

 

What the OP described could have very easily been observed in UO, Everquest, DaOC, Asherons Call, Anarchy Online, Shadowbane etc etc . But this person first recognized this in WoW, because it was the first POPULAR MMMO where they experienced it.

Many Mmo's had classic moments way before WoW.

I have a lot of great memories of AC and UO.

The difference is WoW introduced those moments to a larger audience.

Probably you was one of them.

Well done OP! :)

My fondest memory or first moment in WoW was I was with my son and we were both about levle 5 or 6. We came up near Maestras Post from the north heading around the corner towards Astrannar and there were 3 horde players coming towards us. This was our first ever WoW confrontation and I will never forget the battle. We lost fairly quickly, but that excitement had me hooked and I will never for get it. I too would love that feeling again! I salute you Vanilla WoW! 

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.
