It is a great open world and no matter how much endgame can get repetative, I find myself back in the game because of it.

WOW was hated by this site as a selling point. And now they get the backlash.

Every dud published by a few idiots holding some basic scripts in their hands got promoted by this site and the end result is that now everyone has a headache.

Cheers.

2012 was the last year of the innonvative concepts and they failed BIG time. As from now on: it is shut up or play WoW.

Hi

Maybe you shouldn't blindly adopt other peoples opinions?

Also, if you've got anxiety and depression escaping into an MMORPG is probably going to make you worse in the long term.

Might want to address your actual issues instead of hiding from them.

There isnt anything out there as smooth, well put together, and able to run on a commodore 64 like WoW. Every game that has been put out lacks something that wow has. Play the game. My server has omg 1000000 people on it and keeps getting better.

Better late than never! I've been playing mmorpgs for a long, long time and I can say with confidence that WoW is the touchstone of this genre. Haters be damned. Not many mmorpgs have the polish, content and charm to keep so many players hooked year after year. It was the first mmorpg where I felt progression didn't hit that proverbial brick wall I experienced in all the mmos before it (except for UO). The point where a level gained switches from being a foreseeable goal to being slower than grass growth. Annyway...

 

Enjoy it while you still can. I know I did. But all good things must come to an end and for me raiding at endgame sealed the deal. And I have no desire to ever play again.

I hate WOW bcs i played it and i feel its ugly, has a bad art style, broken gameplay promises, is boring to death and the reason mmorpg gaming degraded into the sad shallow state the genre shows today.

WoW was a great game and i would probaly stioll be playing it if it where not for hte fact i have had enough of blizzards protection system being more useful to hackers then players, i have lost more then 3 account plus one for starcraft 2 and another for diablo 3, i never gave out my password or info but all 3 got hacked and i have tried to many damn times to fight through what blizzards claims is a custmer support for me to ever want to try agian.

this is why i will never play any blizzard game agian, but if not for this i would prob still be playing WoW

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to
Proper Grammer & spelling are extra, corrections will be LOL at.

So you think this is Blizzards fault...none of the blame could possibly be your own?

 

Does your free / $7 authenticator work?

Wow, can't believe you said that. 

You clearly have no concept on the complete and utter void that is depression. You don't 'hide' from depression, you don't escape from it, you don't cover it up. 

Its not like you wake up one day and go 'oh my life is bad, i best do something to make it better' and then you go and do it and your life gets better. It is about having absolutely very little control of your own mindset, for many sufferers imagining a world or an hour, or a day to where you can do something to make you feel better and tackle issues simply does not exist. 

Ive suffered for around 6 years, of course I work also and you get better at managing the symptons as time goes by, obviously medicine helps balance you too, such as fluxontine or in my case citlopram. My counseller said to me that any tool or resource you can muster to give your brain some peace from itself, a form of escapsim is a god-send. Depression for a lot of people can be fatal, for me, it very nearly was a few times. 

So I say to the OP good for you mate, have as much fun as you can get. 

For the record, MoP has been a good xpac, better than cata anyhow.

WoW is the most hated MMO ever because its the most popular MMO there is. and anytime something gets a fanbase large enough it becomes "cool" to hate it. You should NEVER just follow the crowd and at least experience things before making an opinion on 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.

For a while WoW did become boring.

 

But I've noticed that with each expansion a new facet is introduced.

 

For example, archaeology was introduced, and now there are pet battles. There is now weeks of new content just for each one of these different facets. Therefore, there are now different ways of leveling and playing the game. 

 

I don't think there is any other game that come close to WoW's diversity, but I couldn't say that a few years ago.

You could say that all games (except maybe sport) are "shallow time wasters" - socially and economically speaking. 

It depends on how you play a game that matters.

If it's just to rest and re-charge for a bit after coming home around dinner time, I think that's ok because it's not as if you'll be particularly productive around that time of day anyway.

I agree - Darkfall is a great game BUT the server will be wiped soon and everyone will have to start again from the beginning!

In contrast, my main character in WoW was born shortly after WoW's release in November 2004. When you think about it, that's truly amazing. The skills I picked up in 2004 are being 'built upon' today.

I hated WOW because I was told to hate WOW!

Well then, I suppose this is an important life lesson, regardless of  "WoW".
