OP  5/05/13 11:53:31 PM#1

I started my young gaming days in vanilla wow, and I started my raiding days in Kata(BC). 

 

I'm young(19) and can't tell you that I know as much about games as most of you do, I won't pretend to. I don't "respect" the godly games that most people speak of. I party, I go to a major SEC university, and I have a pretty sexy, imo, gf. So... if you don't care anymore I understand.

 

Also, I am drunk typing this. As I usually am when I want to go back to WoW. 

What has happened recently is that I've noticed myself getting sick of all the changes to WoW. There are stupid guild levels that have destroyed the guild concept and community feel to me. There are heirlooms(which I have abused) that make leveling a joke, on top of being rested and having a lvl 25 guild. Let me just say that these things aren't enough for me to consider going back.

 

I have been a die-hard raider in every game I have tried, but nothing even comes close to the quality, fluidity, and logics of the WoW raids that I have come to know since BC... But this has somewhat tapered off since the baby-style gaming inititated in late Wrath.

 

Please, let me stop ranting.

TLDR: I'd love to find a person that notices what I love in WoW(honestly community and serious raiding with chill people, not a bunch of up tight douchebags) and can convice me to come back.

OR, I need a friendly guild. Whether it be RP(I like this shit for some reason, maybe cause I'm weird and used to get my escape through weed and now can't), or it be serious raiding, if I can find a guild that is accepting, friendly, and has an old-school sense of community that I haven't found since Cata, I'd LOVE to come back.

 

I can provide a great leadership presence, I have played every single class ingame in a raiding aspect, but none in MoP.

 

Thank you for reading this or replying, whether you're hating or not, gracias and happy cinco de drinko

This post is really all over the place!

All i can say is, if someone has to convince you to play  you probably shouldnt.

Ya sorry about the all over the placeness I am a confused mind.

 

"If someone has to convince you" is kinda funny to me. If someone has to convince you to do anything the answer shouldn't be "you probably shouldn't". I'm not gonna be a jackass and give you 100 examples but I'm sure you can imagine. This is a forum and I want to get some conversation in here and I think people have some good or not so good points to discuss

I understand 100% what the OP is saying. 

I think you should leave the good memories where they belong ( to the past ) i understand yoj feel nostalgic about the good old times but that kind of friendly atmosphere you are looking for will be found in futur release. WoW is finally getting old and getting into it mid expansion is a pretty bad idea imo. 

If you absolutely wanna go back to WoW i suggest you wait for the next xpac

Just wait for next Expansion to get back into it...rumor has it that it will be Burning Legion with Demon hunter as new hero class but eehhh take it with a grain of salt.

I tried this game 6-7 times since it's launch hoping to get into it the way everyone else did... I never found it fun and always found myself drifting off while trying to level.

Edit: That being said I still respect the enjoyment this game provided to tens of millions over the years.

Leave Wow as a fond memory and continue to enjoy being 19, on a major college campus and having a good looking GF.  If I were in your shoes WoW and raiding would be the last thing on my mind.

Go make some mistakes on Friday and Sat. nights instead . Plenty of time to play MMOs when you dont have anything better to do. Enjoy having the social life that college offers while you can. =)

Do not return.....over the past 8 years everytime i came back i saw that WoW became worse and worse...
Not only the game itself, but also the players left playing WoW.

I have retardedly fond memory's of WoW from Vanila trough every Xpac, but the best ones are still:

Vanilla
TBC
WoTLK

Cataclysm i have zero...
MoP...dint even bother anymore


cherish those fond memory's you have m8, WoW lost their best developers a long time ago to Project Titan.
And it shows......

Logic, reason and fact do not supersede human nature. Ignorance reigns without justice.

Mists of Pandaria is a great expansion.  They've been releasing big patches every three months, and the only complaint I've seen from people is that there are too many dailies and it isn't an alt friendly expansion.  It's also a lot harder to acquire gear this time around than it was in Wrath or Cataclysm.  Slightly easier than it was in Burning Crusade.

 

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

Hi

I enjoyed WoW, but I'll never go back to it because I know it's not the game that I remember.

I'm with everyone else, if you need convincing you should probably not return.

 

I do and don't agree with the opinion that the game has gotten worse, I think that the game was at its best TBC/up to Ulduar in WOTLK, but Cata was a disaster of casual friendliness.

I do believe that MoP is a very solid expansion.

Love the game and probably always will, but as has been said, if you need to be convinced to come back then that means you also have some doubts about it. I think unless you feel completely compelled to log back in and take up the reins then it is probably best left alone until you get that urge. 

It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.
