Why is WOW soo.. emptyy! - Page 3

post #21 of 42
Play horde...I don't really understand it, but even on the low populated servers Horde ussually was out numbering Alliance 2:1

The game sort of feels empty to me as well mainly because there is no global chat channels. Like i think the LFG channel should be global based on your level. That would limmit the ammount of people able to talk in your LFG so there won't be constant spam.

WoW is the most populated of any MMO, but I would not play on anything but a server that reads as medium population in the character creation screen. The low and new player servers litterally have like 2000 players total on them while on a high population server you can have that many people or more in a town at one time. They really should merge most of them together...but then they wouldn't get the money for character server transfers.

It really depends on the area. WoW is a huge game and your bound to end up in an area and be the only person there (in the low level areas at least). It was like this even a year ago when I was still playing.

If you wana play with others at level 10 you can start PVP, and at level 15 you can start doing Random Dungons with groups of 5 people. The matchmaking system groups you with people from a number of different servers so its usually decently fast, it usually instant though if you are a tank of a healer.

Usually I would quest while waiting in the que. I'm not sure though if you get this as starter edition though.

I saw more people 80-85 but that was when people were still leveling up for cataclysm I guess because after that when I was leveling up mining in the 80-85 areas the only time I saw people outside the towns was when they were camping rare spawns or something.

I got bored after 2 months. Most people who play WoW literally suck. They'll gloat about playing for 4 years yet play their toons like they've been playing a week and constantly cause raid wipes and the people who know what to do have some kinda ego because they can actually play the game as intended lol, the whole community is just hilariously awful

How's this in any way different from games such as CoD, Battlefiled 3 etc?
In matter of fact what multiplayer game do u know that don't cause ego?

There is a lot of that throughout the game, but then again, there is a lot of that throughout every MMO. Regardless of which one it is, there is only so much content that they can create before they have to start repeating themselves on some level, in this case the type of quests, being "gathering" or "killing" quests where you have to complete a certain number of the same task before being done. Even SWtoR has faltered when it comes to this. I played their beta and it is by far the most immersive storyline and questing system I have ever played in a game. If you strip away the lore and the voice overs though, it's just another go here, kill x or gather y and return to me when done type of scenario. It's almost unavoidable.

Where WoW excels is in end-game content. The raids are by far the most competitive PvE environment you will find in pretty much any MMO, and the BG's, when you find a good group as just as fun and competitive.

Yeah, it's gonna be a grind to get to the max level to experience this stuff, and even then, it's gonna be hard to find a group of players who are actually skilled enough to do everything (heroic modes in PvE, higher ratings in BG's). It took me a long time to get to where I am doing heroic modes, mostly because I had to create a team to go there with me and guide them along the way though.

If you want to not sit through so much of the droll questing, go download an addon called "WoW Pro Guides" and make sure to get the leveling packs with it as well as an addon called "Tom Tom". It is an in-game addon with guides that will tell you where to go, what quests to get/turn-in, what to kill, etc. It will help you get to 85 faster than almost any other method so you can experience end-game content.

I kno starter doesnt allow u to join guilds and stuff but am i missing out on something? When does the fun start!
WoW is pretty much tired old and dying. I got bored of that game a long time ago, save yourself the pain and just not playing it anymore.

The Old Republic is coming out 12/20/11 (next month) if you want to start playing a MMO.

Honestly level 85 is when the game starts IMO. Most of the leveling content is boring until you get to the Cataclysm areas. Just stick with leveling and once your 85 there is a lot more to do. If you buy the game you will most likely be able to join a guild of an alt and you can start leveling with other people and lower levels. Out of curiosity, what class/race and server are you playing on?

While you can use dungeon finder for low level instances, WoW is pretty much a single player RPG until the higher levels. Since the Cataclysm revamp those 1-85 levels go pretty quickly - which is a shame because the leveling storyline is actually pretty good in most zones. All people want to do is race to 85 as fast as possible and enjoying the story and experience be damned.

I played wow for about 4-5 years and I can tell you this... STOP PLAYING NOW! Its such a time sink and a waste of time. I raided with some of the best players in the world and got the best gear and it was not worth it at ALL. Trust me.

WoW always got fun for me at 35+. Just do lots of dungeons and get them blues.
