Who did wrong? The advertiser hired to sell the game or the consumer who put faith in advertising?

that is reason 1, 2, and 3 in my book.


beer snob syndrome if you will.  look at eve.  (for a long long time i played both wow and eve).  Its pretty universally considered a good game, but its model of accessability is the opposite of wow's .  you NEED to be the kind of person who will pre-research your decisions, read forums, and not give up after the first dozen or so hours of gameplay before eve really grows on you.  in other words you need to e a gamer.


wow is also a good game but you can literally play it to some capacity even if all you have played in the past is bejeweled, learning as you go if you are so inclined to learn.

I'm a gamer - an old gamer. I like WoW just fine. 

I played EQ the year of release - I hadn't even played bejeweled and I did just fine with it - by the end, you would even say I was 'uber'.

I played EVE and thought it was mind numbingly boring. I'm glad it turns people on - but not me. That doesn't mean I'm not a real gamer. I go to forums, research my decisions and don't give up after the first dozen hours or so of any game I play - even WoW. Some car enthusiasts get into classic muscle cars. Some get into antiques. Some get into car building kits. They are all car enthusiasts - the one's working on formula 1 racers aren't necessarily the 'real' ones.

I totally resent it when people act as if I'm not a 'real' gamer, because I like WoW. I don't think you have to be 'leet' to play EVE, but I think a lot of people who do think they are - but to the rest of us, you are still just playing a fantasy outer space video game - no need to be cocky about it.

For me, it is all about:

"#4) The Stupification of WoW Since Vanilla"

I freaking loved Vanilla Wow.  The challenge level in the end game content was decent and it actually took a little effort to get to that end game content.   For me, that's what makes an MMO something I want to play long term rather than just for a couple of months--a sense that I actually have to put some effort into what I'm doing from the start of the game onward, every time I play it, for years on end.


I don't hate on WoW even now, but when I am critical of it, and the reason I no longer play it, is all about how stupidly easy the whole game got.  I'm still bitter about it too.  I think many old vanilla players are bitter in that regards.  Something we really enjoyed got changed to the point we no longer enjoy it.   So of course it comes across as "hate" sometimes.  Bitterness and hate are hard to distinguish.

"In another 10 years, we'll all look back on today's version with nostalgia as well."

You couldn't be more wrong in that regards.  I do not play today's version, I have never played today's version, and I will never play today's version.   Try again.

Even as a retired hardcore raider I still go back once and a while to see what's happening.

This same amount of anger has been going on for like 6 years, at least some of you guys are persistent. Persistent and failing.

I think a lot of you guys should learn to live with the fact, that WoW is still the most popular MMO, even over F2P garbage. Some  of you have been complaining about WoW for over 5 years, or ferociously defending your game to get people to try it. Amusing effort, nothing gained. You guys lost this fight years ago, live with it! :D

I enjoyed WoW through the first 2 expansions. But for some reason, when Cata launched, I felt it was time to go.

Gaming should be about fun, not gender equality.

How many times does this have to be said; Popular does not always equal quality. Is McDonalds food high quality? Are garbage tv like Kardashians high quality?

Hell no! WoW may be popular but a high quality MMO, it is not. It is dumbed down POS, catering to the lazy, ignorant masses.

This article seems to forget the hate of kids too young (cause Blizzard doesnt care to enforce the 13 years or older policy and let 6 years old fuck around the dongeons) and the monthly fees and expensive expansions... WoW is a milking machine for the bank account. THAT is the reason why I quit after so long. Just doing the math (over 3000$ over 5 years) made me taste puke in my mouth. If only Blizzard could come with a better plan for the next game maybe I'll reconsider playing a monthly fee, but wow is never getting back on my computer anytime soon.

That is if you're gullible enough to believe they have 7 million subs.

When I left, my server was practically empty as well another server I had alts on and this was a month or two before that stupid dumb panda garbage came out. Since then even more players have abandoned that sinking ship.

So, to believe they have 7 million subs is to believe you'll get wings to fly.

It use to be good, but it's become SOOOO dumbed down and it just has no heart anymore... Plus I can't stand dps meters and spamming a rotation... feels like playing a calculator. And they have yet to offer balanced pvp.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

There are a couple of things I would like to add:

1)  Love it or Hate it any mention of WoW, ANYWHERE on gaming sites, sparks conversation and debate.  There is a reason for that

2)  Like it or not, WoW introduced an entirely new player base to the genre.  Which IMO would have died out by now if now for World of Warcraft

3)  WoW was / is a very good game.  Doesn't mean its for everyone but anyone who says a game that controlled, and still controls the MASSES, isn't good is just being biased and not looking at it objectively.  No game has ever done what WoW has done in terms of online subscription gaming; there is a reason for that

4)  Before you go off the deep end on me; I hate casuals

I'm a retired hardcore raider myself...I still watch the progression races every single tier!  I don't like what WoW is now so I don't play it anymore but that doesn't mean it still isn't a great game for millions of other players.  All the hate this game gets is completely uncalled for.

But it wasn't Vanilla, The dumbing down started with patch 2.3

i remember that patch

Many elite creatures and quests in the level 1-60 experience have been changed to accommodate solo play.

LOL.  Let me stop you right there.  That was funny.

The only thing I hate about WoW is that I can't go back in time and start fresh.  The first time I went to Darnassus and saw someone riding a tiger blew my mind.  

Blizzard has tried to keep up with the times. They steal almost every good idea that other games come up with and implement it into Warcraft.  They did get lazy with the daily quest hubs, or that could be because they listened to the die-hard addicts that praise everything Blizzard does.  "I can do unlimited dailies over and over? Thanks Blizz!"  Sound familiar?

I hope they stop listening to the addicts and make the game a little more fun with the next expansion.  Don't let WoW addicts beta test. The response will always be the same: "Great job Blizz!"

7 Million subscribers pay 15/month? Lies!

WoW is a good game because it got the themepark right for the casual player.


But it also destroyed a up and coming market with making other companies wanting to try and gain that same success.

All other MMO's released after WoW all tried to copy the themepark and they all failed, one even tried to turn a sandbox game into a class and level based game. SWG anyone ?

Only now are we starting to see signs of the industry innovating new ideas and systems in mmo's because they now know there is no chance of creating the same experience without being WoW.

TSW is the first mmo in years to be daring and innovate new ideas. It is a really good game that got a lot of bad press which is a shame because it is unique and I love how they have done the missions and how you need to use google to research some of the answers to them. The game rewards you for exploration as well as you find new missions this way because not everything is handed to you on a platter like a themepark quest hubs.

ESO looks to be the next mmo out there that is going to break the themepark mold and try a hybrid type game style with a DAoC pvp system. Their skill system based on the single player games and a pvp system that has the ability to change the landscape people play in.  I hate battlegrounds that WoW created it took the reason to pvp away.


Age of Wushu although F2P has also moved away from that WoW feel. And is trying something new, and it kind of works. It is also a nice game and being free to play everyone should at least give it a try.
