There's the WOW community I was told about!

 

Heck, I just wanted to share my story. Sorry.

Even though he's clearly got a GW2 sig, you're going to use him to insult the WoW community? Think long and hard what volumes that speaks about your intelligence and ability to think logically.

I wasn't paying attention, but my coworker that has played since the start was the one that told me that the community is bad. In game at least as far as I have gotten, they've seemed ok.

At least you're being an adult about things and apologizing for mistakingly insulting an entire community instead of blaming another person (completely unable to defend themselves) and ignoring any responsibility you have for wrongfully slandering an entire community because you can't bother to "pay attention" and you want an excuse to put down a  complete group or strangers.

.... Oh wait.

EVE, and has been around since 2003.
Of cours,e it doesnt revolve around pink elves and cows with swords, still it's full pvp with full loot on.

I think you got confused by the cynicism of the mmorpg community and mixed it up with WoW's. The WoW community can be bad but their awfulness is usually blown out of proportion. Almost every triple A mmo has the same amount of trolls and assholes as WoW. Try posting your story on WoW's official forums and you get mostly positive reactions.

He is clearly poking at the so called "bad" community malarkey people here speak of when they refer to the "WoW" community. And I found it as a double HA! Defining both the negative attitude this community has for WoW thus referring to it as a "WoW" community (HA!) AND pointing out the negatively flippant attitude of people like dadante666 (with his "so?" statement) that exist in any and all communities whether they play WoW or not (HA! HA!).

Most people are just regular people wanting to have a good time. The asses you are thinking of are called "the vocal minority", as the name implies they are loud and there are few of them.

New players will find plenty of accomplishment, it's us old dogs who have done it all and seen it all that find very little, dont forget that.

I think the attatchment to LK was pretty much because we knew Arthas from WC3. For most WC3XP player playing wow the story pretty much ended LK died. 

It's time for the baton to be passed to people who don't know that Warcraft is a strategy game.

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

I do apologize for my blanket statement of a community. I am enjoying the various aspects in the game. It is truly a beautiful game. I came from City of Heroes and enjoyed it as well. I felt the community is what made that game so much fun. I am beginning to meet folks and enjoy this one as well. I have tried EVE as well but dang! it's a lot harder to learn, but also a beaufitul graphics game. I am a SWG Vet and an original 1997 Ultima Online gamer. I hope this game is my new home!

Welcome to the world of Azeroth.  Many here don't like us WoW players, but that's ok, they're just jealous of our game's awesomeness :)  It only has more people playing than all other MMOs combined...that's all :)

I'm not jealous, it's just that you aren't actually better for playing WoW or worse for not doing so XD

I've always settled on a pvp server but this time, rolled a new char on moonguard jst for a change lmao.

Anyways, hope u had fun ingame, cya xD.

i have to say op you are in a right game , none of these cheap copies on market can reach what blizzard have reached during the years with wow, ofc it a walk in the park right now with easymode everything but there is so much things to do, than just questing. and taking TERA fro example here heh let me laugh and hard cheap asian grindfest with no tab targeting? yea but your crosshair is still in the middle of the screen and you can move you just turn your camera whats the revolutionary in this?

it wasnt even from the start. so op im happy for you since there is none YET out that can take you in like wow can with massive lore behind aswell!

 Mm Wow players are ok, the community spirit is a bit suspect.  WOW is a  great levelling experience, but once you hit max level, well we all know about the 10 minute instances with no chat/LFR zerg and endless dailies to get underpar gear and the ultimate requirement to commit to a raiding schedule to get competitive gear.  You are confusing the number of people who have bought the game to the number playing online at the moment :)

there is no commintment anymore with competitive guild runs as you can now run random fromed raios and in my experience as wow community calls them pugging and it sucks well for those random raids ive done they havent sucked, its been working niocely, so where the commintment? i can just hop in and que do something else while i wait and iff i go .

 

also wow community spirit? same spirit lies behind all the communities its just in different form. for example everyone ssays lotro have great community well in my experience there is no community at all, general chats are silent as grave and still often if one asks somehting hes geting the same bashing like if that person asks noobish questin in wow general chat channels.

 

this is just a territorial war between the games you liek and you hate in general ( you as player )

 

cheers

 Not correct, random pugs do not give access to top tier gear or the full raiding experience, i.e the boss fights are tuned down to the a low level and even have skills removed because blizz know that pugs break up when there is a difficult encounter that can kill a raid too many times (well documented by Blizzard).  You can pop into a zerg LFR though.

also wow community spirit? same spirit lies behind all the communities its just in different form. for example everyone ssays lotro have great community well in my experience there is no community at all, general chats are silent as grave and still often if one asks somehting hes geting the same bashing like if that person asks noobish questin in wow general chat channels.

 There are mmorg communities that are not full of Jaded and aggressive/offensive chatting.  If LORT community is lie that as well then agree that community is also fouled.  Its not ok just because other communties are the same.

this is just a territorial war between the games you liek and you hate in general ( you as player )

 Indeed (its actually the corporate greed exhibited by Blizzard I hate)

cheers

When I first tried the Gnome, I laughed and almost quit immediately but then I realized that it is sort of out there away from normal fantasy games but coming from CIty of Heroes, it is right on target. I just wanted to share. We love this game and as soon as I get my taxes back I will create a second account and get the $59.99 version!!!!

So you basically hated the game and didnt even tried it, right...
