OP  8/27/13 12:21:50 PM#1

There are so many people lost  in MMo land jumping from MMo to MMO, and they cant find what they are looking for in any of them...

 

Can anyone give them a reason to choose WoW as their new home? 

Why would we return to WoW?

 

(and no, i am not asking for reasons why i should not return to this game)

My main reason is having to buy the last 3 expansions might be rather steep just to try it, so there needs to be some realy good reasons for me to join.  

 

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations)
Currently playing : The Elder Scrolls Online and Wildstar

I don't know. I end up returning every 6 months or so to leave and unsub within a couple of weeks. Unfortunately there is just nothing else out there worth playing either. I'm really starting to wonder if anyone will ever make a quality MMO like WoW was that I want to play for longer than a couple of months. I had some hope for FF:ARR but since being burned before I chose not to pre-order, apparently that was a really good decision. MY hope is fading for Wildstar, EQNext, and ESO as I learn more about each one. Sigh, maybe MMO's are not for me anymore.

 

At least I still have WarThunder.

I want to be Uncle Owen again.

Like most I buy the new expansion play for a month and then quit again and then every 6 months sub again.
The only thing I can say is that if the rumors of the new expansion are true about it being Burning Legion themed then I am all over that in a heart beat!

I'm not positive, but I think the latest expac gets you all the previous ones, too.

As far as playing again?
- Friends still playing.
- New content.
- Experience how the game has changed.

That is all that come to me right now...

- Al

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

Some people keep an eye open for WoW sales when they offer all of the expansions for like $20. These sales seem to be happening more often too to try to battle falling subs.

Lets say their next expansion is a must have,top-notch product,housing,deep character customization,improved graphics,millions of new items ,challenging game play,servers merged which makes x-server and lft tools crap obsolete and worlds feels more alive again,elites comes back etc...

what else they need?

way to skip MoP for free.

So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.

If DaoC was so fun why don't you just play it?

8/27/13 12:36:34 PM#7

don't know dude, the game is old but it's kind of good. I think the main reason why ppl still play it is because they have spent so much time in the game that they know there way around.

Could also be because the spent so much time on the character that they don't want it to go waste.

Half of the ppl I know that plays wow hardly even like the game anymore they just play because there used to it and that many of the stuff they have have taken so much time to get that it would be a shame to leave it, but they are not having fun anymore. 

It's like this, right now I am watching a tv-show about cooking cause I am to lazy to change the chanel to something good so insteed I am stuck with masterchef crap :)

But still the game is good it's just old and nothing has changed to the better since it's lauch.

And blizzard is the most greedy company of them all charging there players for everything like switching servers and stuff like that. It's just greedy if your already paying a sub and have payed for the game aswell.

For all the money you spend you never get anything new until the next expansion which you have to pay for aswell

That said there pve raiding is easy but good if you like raiding and stuff, the game hasn't been challanging since BC expansion, other then that if you like that stuff you will love it.

PVP sucks thoo it's all who has the best gear that wins and it's boring even when your winning.

Guess I am not promoting my former game that much sorry :)

It's the most polished, user friendly and active MMO on the market.   

 

The WoW Battle Chest (includes vanilla, BC, and LK) is $19.99

 

Cata is $9.99

 

MoP is $39.99

 

So $69.97 for everything (plus sub).

Well, some new classes, two more races, more challenging top level of the game (Personally i am a huge fan of LFG tools so thats where i disagree with you) 

 

But then thats not what is was asking, i am looking to give people like me a good reason to return. I played for 3 years after release, and had a lot of fun..  But most of the things fun in WoW i can find in all those other games.   ]despite that, WoW allways felt special when i played it.. just cant figure out why..

The only reasons i visit occasionally (usually on the 10 days free)

+Is to say high to old friends
+Reminisce about old times.

If it were not for all the work i put in to getting the warglaives of Azzinoth then i would delete that account flat out.

Blizzard pays attention to detail and the engine is slick and the scope of available content is massive.

Yes, you can just level via dungeons if you've been there done that multiple time, but Blizz crafted an interesting and inviting world. They understand pacing more than most other developers and if you notice as you go from zone to zone, the atmosphere and environment changes.

I haven't played in about a year now, and am waiting to hear more about The Dark Below before I decide on re-subbing. But it's just a game that offers so much.

and some new classes and races why not,and keep lfg tool servers and remove those from pvp servers or something like that.

To me they have atleast 1 special thing,some of its NPCs ,i still remember them,their names,what they wear and where,what do they have to say and such.

do i remember NPCs from Tera? ,no ,GW2? no,whatever other "wowclone"? and the answer is no.

+They somehow managed to make strong characters allmost like Baldurs Gate,that is real magic (allmost)

++ meh,i do remember one NPC from swtor,it was somekind of Yoda clone and i remember it because it was so terribly done,cant remember its name or voice i just remember that there was something terribly wrong.

So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.

you can also check what goodies 5.4 brings. they are many and some of them really special.

anyway, i think after all, wow (with its goods and bads) is still the king and tbh, i still dont see any new one in the near future taking its place.

I would go back if I could get MOP for under $15.00. I won't pay more than that for it plus a sub fee. So if Blizz wants me to come back they need to make MOP far more lucrative. Otherwise I will continue to wander MMO free because nothing else is worth playing to me.

The only luck I had today was to have you as my opponent.

8/27/13 3:00:50 PM#15

to raid...that's why i'd return.

 

one year later and it still hurts not being behind my shield, in front of my 25man guild facing a massive boss. :((((

 

the pain is there.

Because you like the game...? Seems to be the best reason i think.

 

Beyond that... Who the frack knows.

 

My personal opinion would be, because it is one of the best overall themepark games on the market. Easy to get in to but with a nice depth and more stuff to do then you can shake a stick at.

 

But in the end, if you did not like the game you will most likley not do it now. It is still WoW and the base formula have not changed... Pet battles are the bomb though.

This have been a good conversation

^^ it's only sentiment and addiction/lack of competition that drives wow. Look at the game as a new prospect and it's mess. e.g. wow storytelling was amazing, so what do blizzard do? They rush you past the stories and levelling and zones. Weird.

rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW (1000 hrs on main mage)> oblivion > LOTR (480 Hunter) > Rift (230 hours mage) > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(900 elementalist)

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein

 

More seriously, probably because they have fond memories of the game, enjoy (or at least tolerate) the gameplay, have friends that play, are curious about new content, and/or some other personal motivation.

 

Plenty of different reasons. I might not like the game all that much, but it's fair to assume there's plenty who still do and would willingly go back to the game after a hiatus to play some more.

You should look up the definition of 'lucrative'

I am Demrocks and i have been wow free for a year but i still have mental breakdowns where i wake up all wet and sweaty and catch a glimpse of me and my friends standing in Molten Core where our raid leader is screaming LOOT THE FUCKING DOGS !!!

 

Seriously tough WoW for me lost its touch after WotLK.

Cataclysm changed my class so much that i dint enjoy it anymore.....Yes i played Warrior....for like 7 years......

Blizzard changed my class so much i just deleted 7 years worth of playing.

Dint bought MoP either as iam still pissed.

 

Tried playing other classes but they dint feel the same as my warrior and i could never forgive Blizzard for that.

I had a great time in WoW, prolly alot better then i had in EQ, Vanilla and TBC gave me and my brothers such fond memory's.

I sometimes still have the urge to just resub and play again, but i know i will leave disapointed again :(

The game core elements changed to much, from all the classes to all the talents, WoW for me personaly isnt WoW anymore.

 

By best raid achievement was a world #16 ki9ll on Thadius with my former guild Imba on Kor'gal server

Achieved rank 13 on my own - no account sharing, i could have made it to rank 14 but would have lost my wife and kids so i took a step back.

WoW was a great game, but its not even a shadow of what it once was.

 

I hope i ever get to play a mmo like that again tough :)
