I believe "true raiding" in wow ended in BC and pre-BC. I raided all the way until the end of BT and Sunwell, then Lich King came out. I played a little at first, quit, then came back about 6 months later. Their new "easy" system let me gear up enough in less than a month and already get into the top raiding guild on our server and down Lich King... after not being active since almost the beginning of the expansion. The combination of the same stuff and the lack of achievement made me say my final goodbyes about a year ago before Cat.

i had/have friends who play this game constantly and who i consider to be among the wow "Elite" (frankly i'd be ashamed to be called that)

They got me playing WoW but i could never get immersed in it, i was swamped with "OH you must have x mod, and x mod, and this one.." then on top of this, the repetative quests, the price of the sub, the kids who play it..Oh, and lets not forget the fugly HUD that seems to be essential for gameplay (esp "raids")

With such a cumbersome HUD, you may as well have a screen of binary.

Needless to say i wasn't playing it for long. Far better ways to spend my time/money. I've never been a MMO kinda guy anyway.

I played wow for about 3.5 years starting on release day. I raided all the hardest dengeouns and had a great time. I just lost interest. I mean how long do they expect people to play a game?

Everything get long in the tooth eventually.

WoW is a great game...... That's what people seem to fail to understand. It's a game, it's not a ground breaking on the edge revolutionary online anything. Blizzard took all the flaws of previous MMO's and made a very well rounded carebear kind of game for players of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy.

I'm very bitter at Blizzard for this game. It's the new trend of MMO's. They completely removed the online community from these types of games and made it completely single player or very brief interactions with people.

I'm quite surprised that WoW held out for this long, but long seen the downward curve of the death of this game. Vanilla was prime, BC added new content, LK watered it down, and Cata is the first "NEED MOAR MONEY!!" expansions. All while they're offering things to the players to increase revenue, such as server/faction hoping and various vanity purchases.

It's a slow death and WoW ruined the MMO genre. Unfortunately I'll keep playing off and on, because it is ultimately the best game on the market for the things I wish to do with a game.

Heres to high hopes for EverQuest Next! NO MORE INSTANCING EVERYTHING!!

I don't understand. WotLK didn't make it "easy", it added an easy option. For the "hardcore", there's always HMs. Yogg+0 and LK25H were harder than any fights that came before them, according to the guilds that got world first in each. As for it being "easy" to gear up, it's strange how people complain when it takes weeks and months of grinding to get gear, but then complain when it gets too "easy" as well. LK normal wasn't made for you, it was made for the average player who never made it into Sunwell and BT.

This is the real reason most people can't accept. You play the game for a certain amount of time, and you lose interest. It's not because the game became too easy or unbalanced or that Blizzard became money-hungry or too lazy. It just starts getting boring.

Until they release Diablo 3, the next Starcraft 2 chapter, "Project Titan", etc.

You will see WoW slowly decline over the next 5 - 6 years. However, WoW /= Blizzard.
