I confess I never have quit playing wow. Probally because when I got my beta invite and went to their site  and looked more closely at the screenshots/ features I decided not to play and never did. I did almost played wow a couple times when friends asked but didn't because it looks like someone barfed out an ugly daoc/eq.

I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you.

2/27/13 12:52:38 AM#102

I quit back in Burning Crusades. 

 

I will never play it again.  Every reason given in the video can be said by any fan of any mmo. 

 

Yes people quit WoW.  I did.  I have friends that did and never looked back.   WoW does what it trys to do pretty well.  I'm not trying to knock it.  But it's pretty bold to say people never really quit WoW.  Do they have the record highest population ever?  No.  They've been loosing subs for years. 

 

People do quit WoW.  All the time, and in fact, never go back.  I am one of them.

I have very little against the time I did spend in WoW, except that the community sucked and the whole quickie dungeon finder mechanic left a lot of bruised egos all around.. but yeah, once you step back from WoW and actually have a better altenrative to play (in my case GW2), you aren't addicted anymore nor are you bored enough to go back just because you've invested so much time in it.  Other than that, I just didn't care for the direction it was going.

The reason I kept going back was because I didn't like anything else more than I liked WoW, and since I already knew how to play... well...

Now the game just looks and feels old.

I only take breaks like right now i'm on break until 5.2. Maybe if some game were to throw me something worth while i'd be happy to move on.

Don't get me wrong WoW/Blizzard can frustrate me to no end, being a shaman player in their game requires me to buy a keyboard and forehead protector every month.

The only MMO games to have pulled me away from WoW for any reasonable duration was Lineage 2 and RFO.

The game feels better than any other mmo out right now, sorry nothing can beat the fluid response WoW offers. As for looks ya its old but the graphic quality they pull out of their antique engine is amazing. They do have some very beautiful scenes.. albeit there are some very ugly ones too.

It was a fun ride while it lasted.

I don't feel the same way.  I tried going back to WoW shortly after playing the GW2 beta.  There was absolutely no reason to play the game anymore since I enjoy the combat systems about most everything else.  It doesn't feel smooth to me anymore.  Almost everything is animation locked.  I remember thinking when I used the skills that weren't "Holy crap, I can use this skill while running, take that mofos!"

Now I have a whole game like that.  *shrug*

I quit 3 or 4 weeks after release and never came back. It's just not my game. I hate everything about it. The leveling, the quest hub hopping, crappy character design, shitty looking armor, bad textures and general low poly world that was outdated even when it released.

So, your statement is wrong. I quit WoW.

Its true for me atleast. I quit numerous times in BC for a couple months at a time for different mmos (LOTRO and Aion) but always went back. Stayed through the Crusaders Coloseum then quit again. Came back before Cata for a month then left. Then played Rift for a couple months then came back march of last year. Played for 2 months then came back for MOP launch as a saw some good improvements. ECT ECT.

Wow will always be my go to mmo. If Defiance doesnt hold my interest Ill probably play it til TESO or Archeage.


Playing: TSW, War Thunder, World of Tanks, and FFXIV.
Waiting on: Archeage, Wild Star, Everquest Next and The Black Desert

I quit WoW mid-Cata. I will never go back.

Multi-season gladiator and fairly hardcore raider (top 50 world)

Best thing I ever did. OK maybe not best ever, but in terms of gaming, best decision was to quit WoW.

My life has gotten a lot better since. I play other MMOs, ones that don't require grind but provide more fun and more skill-based gameplay than WoW.

I'm healthier, more educated and just more sorted in RL than during WoW years.

That game forces you to grind endlessly to keep up, spending hours doing meaningless repetitive things that you really should be spending improving your life, your family, your career and your self.

WoW will be over soon, and for many it is already. It's old, it's ugly and frankly we've all done it all before. WoW is pretty crap now, and unless you have nothing else in your life, there is really no reason for you to play it.

If you have nothing else in your life than WoW, well you know what to blame for that.

Your life will continue for the next 30-50 years and more. Stop and think.

False: I quit WoW. and I have no intention of ever going back.

I didn't quit because "lawlz wow is failzsauce" or because "omfg blizzard keeps ruining it bring back classic wow!" or any of the other reasons everyone always whines about quitting. I quit, simply because the reason I played isn't there anymore. I was a raider, pure and simple. A casual raider, yes. But that's what I enjoyed doing. Going into dungeons, with a competitent guild that was there to have fun, and kill shit. My guild members either quit, or stopped raiding, I had 4 max levels at the time and it wasn't worth a server transfer just to raid so I quit.

Beyond that, though. Its one of those things that just, after so long you get tired of playing just like any other video game. Doesn't matter how many patches or expansions they make people will eventually get tired of it.

Playing
Nothing
waiting for
The secret world
Played
WoW, DCU online, star wars: the old republic, city of heroes, city of villains, everquest, plenty more I'm probably forgetting or aren't worth noting.

[mod edit]

I have personally stopped playing WoW several times now since 2005 because I found the game to have done something I did not like.  For example, the severe healing nerfs in early Cata. Funny thing is, I didn't stop playing even ONCE during Vanilla or TBC, but only when Greg Street (Ghostcrawler) took over. I found myself going back because I thought the game had improved or whatever, and it did for a while, but the next patch they screwed things up even worse. WoW was my first MMO so yes I still have fond memories of it and even some nostalgia, can't really blame me for that.

With that said, I am quitting for good this time. My annual pass expired last month and no way am I going back. I've only played around a month of Mists of Pandaria while I've had an active account for 6 months. This is, by far, the worst turd they've ever put out expansion wise. Faceroll dungeons, scenarios with little rewards, forcing dailies down our throats, ridiculous amount of grind with very little reward, not alt-friendly, Looking for Raid (that a lot of people act like is the pinnacle of end-game ...fuck them), raiding guilds becoming concentrated on a select few servers, Asian-themed expansion being marketed to Westeners, dated graphics, worsening community and a lot of vets quitting are just SOME of the reasons why I've quit. Before it was just simply boredom, now I hate EVERYTHING this game stands for and it needs to be revolutionized or I will never go back.

In the meantime, I've played TSW, GW2, SWTOR, Rift, LotRO and WarZ and I only made it to max level with RIFT and SWTOR (I came close with LotRO, though...too bad the questing and ability delay just killed it for me). The only one that has managed to hold my interest for long is RIFT, where I had 2 max level characters. At its core, though, the game is too similar to WoW so I'm tired of it, too. I'm now hoping for a game that is NOT a turd or a WoW clone. I'm waiting for Defiance and TESO.

I left WoW during WotLK.

Miss the people I used to play with.  Never missed WoW.

It's a good game but after a while (hehe ok maybe more than a while) it all got 'samey', seeing the lich king die in heroic was enough for me. (Still hate the end of that saga, I mean really, really bad ending).
