I played Vanilla WoW in Summer 2008 and got bored of it within 3 months, I got up to level 45. I then played it again on 2 seperate occasions on 2 seperate account, was bored within 4 months on both occassions and don't have access to any of my original accounts anymore, not a big deal, only had 1 main character for all of them anyway. I ended up playing world of warcraft for 452 hours total.

The reason why I am tempted to return so often is because I really like WoW's lore and faction oriented pvp. What is really important to me in a MMO is lore, if a game doesn't have lore I am interested in then I probably won't play it unless there was something unique about it like sandbox features or unique gameplay. I thought about Archeage but it is so pay to win and such a grind that I doubt I will ever play it. Then there is TERA, the major problem I have with TERA is pvp is not so faction oriented, you can do Alliance pvp but in the game world, every guild is in one of the 3 Alliances but that does not matter in world pvp since you can become an outlaw and guilds are able to fight another guild of the same Alliance. 

This is what leads me back to WoW, since it has faction based pvp/world pvp, Emerald Dream is also a high pop World PVP server and the only World PVP server that has an almost even number of Horde/Alliance on it so it would be the best one for World Pvp.

Does anyone think I should return to WoW? I tried playing it earlier this year but leveling was so boring, I guess the only way to know for sure would be for me to play WoW for about 50 hours so I can experience end game raids/battlegrounds/arenas and world pvp at max level. I suppose this would be the only way to determine if I wanna play WoW again or not.

My wife and I, after a year of subscription and going max level, just unsubscribed from WoW for the time being.  

 

We've been playing off an on since BC in 2006, but I don't think we are going to return for quite some time mostly because we felt like after max there really isn't much else that entertained us.  We were all about the lore as well and it just kind of fell flat on it's face by 6.2.  Questing in WoD was really fun.  We also had some alts we were playing on the Alliance side that were around lvl 45 that we just couldn't get through anymore.  The age of the old quests really show after playing the later expansions like MoP and WoD.  Plus we just started to experiment with another MMORPG  together (we only played WoW together) and with the new and approved TESO, it made it even more difficult for us to carry on since the game is mainly based on stories and lore.

 

Do as you please.  No one else can say what you should and shouldn't do.  But I will say if you played before and got bored, then what will there be different that will keep you going in the game?  It's one of my favorite MMO's of all time, however it does show it's age especially if you've been playing any other MMORPG or RPG lately.

 

*edit: spelling

Sweet!  Looking forward to hitting up Tanaan Jungle and Hellfire Citadel.

Remove the pirated Win8,install the win 10 preview,and then you'll have win10 for free when they launch the OS.

 

This is what I would recommend also.

However from the sound of it, as of today, that may not be the case.  They retracted the part where they said you would be able to upgrade from a preview build and keep it.

Yes, just get a clean install of the preview build.

When you mean clean install, just run the Windows10InsiderPreview.exe?

https://insider.windows.com/

I mean clean install, as in...you won't be able to upgrade.

If you have Windows 7 or 8, you can actually upgrade to the beta with a patch. It is like installing a patch.

If you have windows XP or Vista, you can't do that, you're going to need to use the ISO file afaik. (will require a USB stick / DVD or any device which can be used as a boot drive).

Gotcha.  Well, if you are an insider with a preview of Windows 10 with a non-genuine version of Windows 7, I just wonder if upgrading to the preview of 10 will allow you to have the full version at launch or will it switch over to a non-genuine version of 10 when released?  

 

It's kind of confusing since they said "As long as you are running an Insider Preview build and connected with the MSA (Microsoft Account) you used to register, you will receive the Windows 10 final release build and remain activated," but just today they retracted the 'remain activated' statement.

Thank you

If you're looking for the most players and activity, look into Atlantic.  Atlantic has always has been the most popular shard.

This will most likely never happen.  A couple of years back they talked about bringing back an old school shard and even took a poll.  However the people that voted were current UO subscribers and most of them said they would have no interest in an old school shard.

 

Plus, which is the best time period to go back to?  Everyone has different opinions.  Some say T2A, some say Renaissance, some even say launch UO. 

 

Ultima is still very much more in depth than most on the market, so you can always go back and have a house, a boat, adventure, etc...  Most game don't even offer most of that.

That's a shame, and I think a lack of positive feedback that had more to do with the small audience that knew about the opportunity more so than based off the merits of offering a classic server.

 

Had EA did just a little bit of outreach & marketing of this offering, I think they would have had a better reception. 

 

If Lineage 2 can muster up 10s of thousands of gamers interested in a classic Korean grind fest.....mostly because of it's open sandbox nature (similar to UO), then I think EA surely could muster enough interest to support a private server....ESPECIALLY given the fact that it can't cost all that much to support / maintain a game like UO (relatively speaking).

I think what EA sees is a game that cost hardly anything to run and to upkeep yet is still pulling in a decent amount of subscriptions to maintain their cost.  It's probably the reason why we don't see much done to the game anymore just because it barely makes anything yet barely costs anything.

 

As much as I would love to see a UO2, it just will never happen; especially in the form that most UO players would like to see it.  Gone are the days of traditional MMO's.  Hell, even WoW's formula is extremely outdated and not hardly replicated anymore.  These 'MMORPG's' of today are purely about action and single player than escaping in another world.

 

It seems like if we want a more traditional mmorpg, we have to look at kickstarter games and we all know how that goes...

As long as your in a guild, I would say yes, any mmorpg can be a social experience.

 

My most social MMO had to of been UO for sure, mostly because I felt like my characters life depended on it.  Making friends in that game was essential to being able to stay alive.

Pretty sure that is for Black Mesa Source.

Correct. 

Originally posted by Hoplites

unlike other MMO's that age with time, this is the first that has made playing content at level cap more painful and reduced replay value.

What a shame.

.

 

 

I support no flying in WoD by a long shot.  Overall I feel so connected to this expansion rather than the last couple of ones soley on the purpose that I have to fight and think my way through the content rather than fly over everything and drop on the objective.  

 

Flying was fun when it first came out.  Then it became a reason to by lazy and not experience all of the content.

EVE Online would probably be the best example of most social MMORPG today.  Every time I log into the game, the chat is blowing up with great conversations, people helping new players out, and corporations.  

 

Dare I say it, World of Warcraft is really social too.  Sure, trade chat may be more like general chat, but sometime there are some good conversations in there, other times it can get pretty brutal.  Social none the less.

All I can say is that I'm glad I never gave them even one dollar.  And to think I was about to.

Great to see some activity from a member of a gaming team, let alone the CEO.

 

With a market filled to the brim with kickstarter games and MMO's releasing what seems like every week; what is there for someone that has been in the MMO market for over 17 years that I cannot find anywhere else?

This will most likely never happen.  A couple of years back they talked about bringing back an old school shard and even took a poll.  However the people that voted were current UO subscribers and most of them said they would have no interest in an old school shard.

Yeah man, I have to agree with people here.  That feeling will most likely never be filled again with a MMORPG.  I've been playing MMO's since 1999 (16 years) and my first was Ultima Online.  Even by time 2004 came around I was already looking for that next mmo to fill the void that UO left.  Like WoW it was just a shell of it's former self.  Still to this day I have yet to achieve to find that perfect game.  Everything changed so much, by time WoW came out it was all about theme park games and never focusing on the actual 'living' in the world.  Hell, like you said, games have changed so much since 2004 now too.

 

The best thing to do is just accept it.  There will be no other that will do the job like your first MMORPG did.  With that in mind, I was finally able to enjoy the games for what they were.  I had fun in WoW too because of how  different it was to UO.  I suppose the closest thing that has given me a feeling like UO would be DayZ on an RP server.  

 

Good luck mate and just learn to accept it.  You'll eventually either find something that will make you feel at home again or you will never find it.  I've been gaming for 25 years now (shit turning 30 sucks) and there are only a few games that give me that rush feeling or that I can go back to and play over and over again.

Lord British's Ultima Online is the longest lasting MMORPG at 17 years old. I think it outweights one bad release.

 

 

However Ultima Online has been doing well for the last 17 years. Why focus on the small negative?

Enhance skills like ESO after lvl 91.

Archeage housing/castle building sytem, but without pvp.

Possible planting and farming and raising animals but not sure.

Same old rant from the same old closed minded people.

 

WoW: WoD is by far the best MMO experience out there.

Coming for an old school Ultima Online player, WoW is basically the best there is which is why I've been back for over a year now.

 

Ever since 2003 I have been looking for that 'next best thing' MMORPG and have literally jumped from MMO to MMO until 2013.  That's ten years for waiting for the best thing out there and most people do not realize that WoW is just that.  

 

Back in 2003 there were not that many MMO's to play and not a whole lot of them were coming out, so you had to wait for awhile to try something new.  That I did and as everyone else I played WoW when it released for a year or two and I didn't want to play in such a 'carebear' MMO.  So that's when I started jumping around, browsing forums waiting for the next best game.  Everquest 2 was suppost to be this greatest game ever and it was pretty awesome when it released, but after a couple of months I realized how much better Blizzard did with their game.  I remember trying Guild Wars, which filled a void for a bit, then waiting a year or so for Vanguard to only be upset with the uncompleted game, jumping to the Age of Conan bandwagon and absolutely loving the game until you realize how unfinished the level 20 and up world was.  In the meantime, Star Wars Galaxy died so no going back to that.  Games like Mortal Online and Darkfall just didn't do justice to what UO had really done to the genre.  Of course in the meantime I've went back and played Ultima over and over, probably a total of 15 times (give or take).  Went over and played on EVE Online, love the game but at this time in my lift I don't have the time to dedicate myself to such a hardcore game anymore.  Tera, Aion, and rift were either coming out or already out and I was in the beta for Rift.  Both games, while interesting and satisfactory, just had this Korean feel to it I just couldn't get into.

 

At this time I was giving up on MMO's, completely.  I was convinced that the genre does not cater to me anymore.  Having not played WoW since WoTLK my wife and I decided to pick it up and then it hit me like a bag of bricks.  This is the game that I have been looking for, for so long.  It had an outstanding art style.  Moving in the world felt real and you felt connected to the world (not just a character running on a plane created by people), the music was top notch, story was just astonishing and it worked with my lifestyle.  So since 2013, I stopped looking for that MMO and realized that WoW is it for me.  Yes, I miss Ultima Online like mad and wish everyday it was how it used to be, but I've came to peace with that being an era that has come and pass.

So there you go, that is my story as to why I play WoW.  Of course, do realized I did not put all of the game I've tried in there.  Elder Scrolls, WildStar, FF14 (Great game btw), Guild Wars 2, Star Wars Old Republic, The Secret World, LotR, Ryzom, DC Online (hated that game, hah) to name a few.
