After almost 1 1/2 year after leaving WoW I decided to go back for the expansion (mainly because GW2 opened my mind a little bit about childish designs).

The art-style is not my cup of tea and I find it childish; the PVE leveling is very very easy, but.... the majority of themeparks out there are equally easy and childish.

I had lots of fun in AoC or TSW and those games are a lot more my style; however both are unfinished and... will they ever be complete? Don't know.

Meanwhile, without any kind of compromise besides some temporary entertainement I joined the Panda's cause, I am reviewing old friends and having some nice moments. Will it last 1,3,6 months? I don't know and I don't really care.

So please stop telling other people what to do or play. Stop measuring everything only with your own standards and personnal taste. Learn tolerance.

35 years old btw...

OP  9/26/12 7:57:46 AM#23

i could think of couple skills in the new skil trees allow me to counter mop raid bosses but thats just me, The older gamers well they tell me they hate the new skill tree system. Why? i have no idea. I think they are resistent to changes of wow.

Younger audience have no problem adapt to new skill tree system, and gear grind and pokemon.

Not this sh**t again. You can claim to be as old as you want but you rare eally not unless you learn to respect other peoples choices. That is what maked you grown up and not some numbers on your birth certificate.

About the skill trees... I started WoW with WotLK.

Since then, I remember skill trees where you had the obvious choices, and the talents to avoid; there was 1 "right" build and sometimes a couple of points remained there to some optional choice. So, in theory things can be different now, but in practical terms I don't see much of a difference.

Ok, if you ask me, I would love to have a more complex system, with multiple viable choices and builds; however I don't remember that kind of design in WoW (remember, playing since WotLK). So I don't get the complains...

Oddly enough, im 'significantly' into the 'older gamer' bracket which you seem to think means WoW is not my game.. just because you don't like it doesnt mean everyone feels the exact same way you do, it may be 'kiddy friendly' not a bad thing imo, but as Eve is my main game, i do also play WoW from time to time... it may be gaming on easy mode, but it is fun. WoW imo, is a strictly PVE game, with fun co'op gameplay (dungeons/raids etc)  probably counts a great deal towards why it is the #1 mainstream MMORPG, and has been for years. Besides, isnt it ageist to categorise people as being suitable for certain types of games and not others

They completely destroyed the whole talent trees and came up with an abomination like this! /facepalm

This goes beyond dumbification. It seems the only target audience is 12 year olds from now on. /shrug

I am glad I just resubbed for a month to check out, without wasting money on the expac itself.

I bought the game.

Leveling a Monk between now and Storm Legion.

Sure the game is dumber than ever, but leveling a brand new class is still fun enough to be worth the cost.

I've been playing MMOs since the original Neverwinter Nights on AOL, and I play WoW...I also play Rift, but I play WoW a little more.  WoW is great for older players, since you can jump in, do a raid, and get out in like 30 minutes.  This way you always have time to do at least one raid in WoW hehe.  I do miss when it was alot longer, but I just don't have the time anymore to do 2-3 hour raids.

Windowlicking good. LOTRO still retains its standard complexity and it's where I will be staying, not WoW.

I was talking to some of the older gamers who have played for 7 years in wow have not purchased mop on ventrilo.

If your over 35 years old its time to move on from wow, blizzard made the changes especially skill tree so you can customize to deal with raid bosses or pvp on the fly. You customize the new skill tree on the fly on different encounters. Wow is changing to fit the needs of 20 year olds and college kids. In fact most of my friend who purchased are over 20 years old and are in college. Wow changed for the younger demographic market and no for old wow players, or old mmo players. You guys needs to accept this and move on.

 

Blizzard's goal is not here to retain old 2004 wow players, mop was designed to get those 20 year olds and college kids demographics with mop hence why the changes. They are sheding off old 2004 wow players and get those new generations of 20 year olds market, and it makes sence. Blizzard is smart.

 Not saying your wrong about MoP being aimed at a younger crowd, but if these older vets didn't buy the game, and haven't even tried MoP aren't they baasically making their statements with no facts to back it up? ie "MoP WoW is for kids because i know it has pandas and because i said so."

  I haven't played WoW in years, maybe I'm even guilty of the above as i haven't tried the new lesser choice skill tree system but tend to believe it must be dumbed down from anything that gives more choice.

It's always good strategy to alienate your current playerbase in favor of gaining a new one. Econ lol.

First, i don't like the generalization that "20 somethings" are what WoW is being built for. It's a fact that WoW has a specific themepark mindset to it, and that is NOT dependant on age.

 

Second, NGE much?

A simplistic but effective marketing strategy!

Think of it like the job world; not what you know, but who.  Choose your favorite beverage, and wait for Random Person On The Internet to tell you what game you should be playing.  'Oh no, no dark ale players in here. We're cognac drinkers!'

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.

Oh, I don't know, I have a buddy who just discovered mmo's and more specifically WoW, and he loves the game.

Of course he was a warcraft fan from the start.

He's 45.

There may be some amount of truth to it. Maybe the exact premise of this hypothesis isn't corrent (age), but WoW definitely isn't made to cater to me any longer, regardless of the reason.

From the last time I was in Azeroth, I would have guessed "Maturity" based on the community alone. One bad apple may not spoil the bunch, but wow was trade chat full of a lot of bad apples.
