[PCgamer] World of Warcraft’s first subscription drop: are you still playing? - Page 22

post #211 of 221
I just started to play Rift, and wow, its so much better than WoW. Almost everyone I've ran into use to be five, six year WoW vets. I'm not shocked that so many people have been leaving WoW. There are better games out, like Rift.

I left WoW for Rift, after six years, and I don't regret it. I tried many mmos during those years. From Age of Conan to Warhammer, and Rift has been the only one that's not only been successful. but is generally a terrific game.

If Blizzard wants WoW to compete again, they really need to do what their player base as been asking them to do for the last seven years. If not, other games like Rift will. But really, I don't think Blizzard cares anymore, they have their new child, titan to focus on now.

What has their player base been asking them to do? There are 11 billion players, some still have different opinions. Some complain WoW is too easy, some complain it's too hard. Some complain about old content being useless and avoided, some complain about Blizzard being lazy and recycling old content. You can't please everyone, and those who complain will always hold the loudest voice.

And no, you're wrong, AoC, Warhammer, and LotRO have all been successful great games. Rift is probably the least innovative "competitor" of the bunch, since it's essentially just WoW with slightly better graphics and random events.

I don't understand this reasoning. People have been getting bored since 2005.

Well, for me it was quite a big transition, I went from ragnarok online to WoW so the experience in terms of 'fun' skyrocketed, then the expansion came out which was just full of fun. Wrath came and everything went to crap.

I play WoW for about 2 months, but the game got way to repetitive. The game in general is way to repetitive. When you first start your character, its the same thing until you hit level 15, then you do raids, which again, is the same thing over and over again. Sure, you can mix it up by using different race/class combo's, but even then your still doing the same raid levels. I haven't gone back, but i'm considering trying RIFT, it looks pretty cool and they just added a trial.

You just described any MMO. There are dozens and dozens of different dungeons to run, there are thousands and thousands of different quests. The are 10 completely different classes each with at least 3 completely different specs. Playing for 2 months, you experienced maybe 2-3% of WoW, and that's being generous.

If you expect Rift to have no repetition, you'll be in for sore disappointment.

Finally someone on OCN who doesn't jump the cool people's hate-wow-for-every-single-reason band wagon.

Rep to you.

I started playing Rift, got a Warrior to 21 and didn't like it. Wanted to give it another chance so I rolled a Rogue, I'm level 19. Absolutely loving it now.

I've been an off and on World of Warcraft player since vanilla release. I would normally play for a bit until I explored all the new content and then quit until another large chunk of content was added then resubscribed. So all in all I played for about a month or two every 4-6 months.

I bought Cataclysm the same week it released and resubscribed. Got to 85 in about a week and played for about 2-3 more weeks to finish off my 1 month subscription. Haven't resubscribed since the my game time expired at the beginning on January this year. I did not like the Cataclysm expansion at all and haven't had a tiny itch to resubscribe to it nearly 6 months later and a lot of "new" content that I haven't even touched (WoW players will understand why I used quotes).

Now all I really play is Battlefield Bad Company 2 and am just waiting for Battlefield 3 to release. Whether I ever go back to WoW after this last game time expiration isn't certain, as of right now I'm not even considering it. I can see others doing the same.
