Saying that a game starts at max level is also saying it isn't any good before that point.

If it's no fun until max level, then they should just start everyone at max level.

Kara was definitely one of my favourite raids, along with ssc.

Plus all of the attunement you had to do back then made it better.

I wear my champ of the naaru and hand of a'dal titles with pride (well, I did).

I used to own two copies of the collectors editions, spent a good 1+k getting a sealed one and an open one. Got about 7xx out of them both when I parted with them. Game was like an addiction to me at some points. Glad I quit it and haven't looked back. Money I would have spent monthly on that game i've bought many other games with I can always play and to me, that is a good enough reason to not play anymore.

Only way i'd play again is if I could setup my own server, had a group of friends to play with and wouldn't have to pay the monthly fee.

To each their own, I never knew anyone who played it personally and played it alone most of the time.

I never got into WOW, at the time it came out, I was already into Neverwinter Knights, Half-Life 2, Starcraft, and of coars Diablo II. When I first saw WOW I found that It was targeted toward all audiences, as to where the games I was playing where Darker in story and appearance. One thing that stood out with WOW was how cartoonie and hexagonal it was. That on top of a monthly fee for what I was seeing, I think sort of turned me off of the game... and from the looks of it, I'm glad I have never got into it. When Diablo III comes out on the other hand, well... I might as well forget about seeing the light of day... ever again.

you should see my D2/LoD collection ( or just my diablo collection in general ). Once I get my full room desk/wall done, i'll grab a snapshot of them all laid out for viewing goodness.

I've watched dozens of people destroy their real lives over WoW, I never got it either. I tried it for about a day one time in 2004~ish and again last year, it was terrible the first time and terrible the second time.

Watching others play it tirelessly, it seems like they play for the sense of belonging to a group more than actually enjoying the gameplay (if the amount of mouse-smashing and screaming at the monitor is any indication).

The main reason some people stay is to just hang out with some msn/yahoo/skype/facebook friends and generally have fun trying to annoy goldshire (horde) or crossroads (alliance). I personally play to enjoy pvp and to enjoy the festive events such as brewfest with a few friends. I quit raiding back when gruul's lair came out and i waited the whole day before we ended up wiping anyway. So i generally avoid raid's because of that one experience... Also it was a hot day so that didn't help my mood either.
