All the crossrealm stuff. My favorite thing about these games is the server communities, especially on PVP servers. Wow really is a lobby game now, no hyperbole.

Sorry I just had to interject with a lol. World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria banner around this page:

"BEST EXPANSION YET"...PC World. 

PC World. PC World!!! A company that sells shit, mediocre computers and has virtually no gaming involvement whatsoever. Is that how deep into the barrel they had to scrape to find positive endorsement?! Really?

Traditionally you can always tell how crap a movie is going to be by the quality of the endorsement on the poster. For example if it proudly boasts tabloid newspapers like the Daily Mirror or Heat magazine singing its praises it's a guarantee it's gonna be bad. I think PC World is now the gaming equivalent of that.

What killed your wow account?  Real life?  Another MMO?

 

Once Cataclysm hit, I grew tired of the game.  rehashed mobs, recycled instances, a toxic community.  I personally felt I paid 40 bucks for a downgrade.  I dabbled with it for a while but totally lost interest in it when A friend introduced me to Company of Heroes.  It was shortly after I discovered how good that game is that I canceled WOW.

 

How about you?

the day they released pets and mounts on cash shop .

pretty much real life to be honest .i ran a guild who was on a RP server and been only semi hardcore(only 2 raids a week) actually got  most of the horde first and a few server first.

i had to leave  during  TBC time to attend to real life and when i returned some  months later the guild had lost most of the people i was close to and fell in a state where it was actually run by a loud mouth teenager who used to be the back up tank for the secondary tank(lol) and in a poor state.

I started to rebuild it ,ironically me and a few guys inherited it as a hurriedly build guild by a  raider from another server who created the guild to try be top dog and could not get it hardcore and quit and we rebuild it then as a semi hardcore raid guild.

But without the friends it was not same and i left only to come back in cata to solo for 2 weeks and quit.

guess mmorpg is only as good as your friends .

Pretty much same as OP. After BC the game just went downhill. Really bad development past BC content.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

How about you?

I quit 3 weeks after I hit 85 in Cata.  I found myself doing more of the same, farming gear to go raid so I can farm gear to do the next content raid.  That style of MMO is so 2004 and I grew as a gamer wanting something more.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Hackers, at least according to my email every other week.

Really? How did that happen? Never happened nor to me or any friends or people I know.

Mah, I guess because I do not click on every mail I get that warns me my account is under investigation and "click here".

Always wondered how is this possible. I got bored usually before any maxed out alt, but in swtor, wow, rift, ... i have ALL possible combinations maxed out and was always fun to level and compre them all. Maybe you should try to find another game.

There were a couple different times for me. The first was BC. Making raids smaller, the direction it just went. Was in the top guild on the server, but BC just destroyed it.

Came back later with wotlk. I enjoyed my time for a bit. Found a few friends from the old days and had some fun. Did a lot of different things than before. Even got mount obsessed, went back and did a lot of grinding and got 100 mounts, hehe. Kind of wish I did all that on something other than a rogue though. Really wished they added in housing so I could have all the mounts lounging in the yard.

Eventually quit because of crap like gearscore. Ugh, just hated what people turned into.

Did try it later on,next couple expansions when I got free time or really cheap, but it has been simplified too much for my taste, streamlined, and just not the same. Not bad experiencing some new content, but endgame stuff is just not as fun as before.

I can agree on that, definitvely have decreased socialiying. But on the other hand, I like to say if somebody want to socialize, should do it far far from keyboard, with real friends.

Also I have been subbed much longer in i.e. wotlk with lfg than would otherwise. Before was 10 hours lfg-ing to play 1 hour, with lfg tool was like playing 10 hours and 1 hour lfg-ing. Amazing. Because of time schedule i could never afford to raiding, despite I play in media 5 hours per day, but in smaller chunks of time. Guilds? Working only if you have real friends in. Otherwise is just for show.

Is lfg bad thing? Not for me, is one of best things ever invented for mmo's. Despite this mean less "socializing".

Two things killed WoW for me, the number 1 problem with WoW is that it has a Toxic community like the OP already stated. The biggest majority who play this game are not normal sane people, they rather give you grief than help you out like a normal person would. F*** Trolls and F*** Jerks.

The other problem with WoW is account hacking, I just so happen to be a victim of this myself. I came back to the game once to recover my account which was banned but because I left it for too long, most of my stuff I had (gold, special items like pets) it was all gone forever since Blizz can't recover stuff past a month. Bull***!!! I swear, I did not get my account details stolen from emails, I'm not that stupid. Then Blizz come out with those stupid Authenticators making logging in more of a choir, give me a f****** break...how is this suppose to make the account safer???

To my guess, since I haven't subcribed to WoW for a long time, it's probably been hacked again by now.

Also I never understood why we needed this Gearscore garage although I've never leveled a character past level 63 to experience this problem.

WoW should have been Warcraft 4, not an ass-ridden online playing Barriens Chat game with the worst account security ever...

You level way too fast and because you level way too fast you don't even get to enjoy the experience. Once you reach max level the only real option for pve is to gear grind which I find pretty boring.

Agree on that. Have less problems as I'm altholic and have now 7 lv. 90, 3 lv. 88 and monk 66 ... having a blast with all alts. But leveling is so fast one must skip to many quest chains. Ok, can do at any time, but it is not fun doing quests lv. 85 when you are 90. In this regard I prefer GW2 where level of player is adjusted to questing area.

gearscore and getting kicked out of dungeons for that killed my wow account.

i am wow-free since WOTLK expansion.

GW2 will keep me busy for at least another year (maybe two).

OP: "toxic community" as you say.

 

My guild all moved on to other games, mainly GW2. I don't have any RL friends who play. It was hard to start over with no friends and no guild. It was easier to meet people and decide on a guild after grouping with people I met in the general community back during TBC. These days, the community was downright unpleasant. 

 

That's not to say there aren't good guilds in WoW. It's just harder to meet up with them if your not in a guild. The random spam invite thing is kind of hit or miss. Mostly miss.

 

I like the people I meet in Rift and TSW a lot better.
