Why is WOW soo.. emptyy! - Page 4

post #31 of 42
If you are playing the free evaluation up to level 20, most of your social options are limited anyway. you cannot truly experience WoW with the restriction imposed by the eval.

Also, most of the people you will be playing with at your level, should you get the full version and hop into the dungeon finder system, will be alts of high level characters, with no patience for someone learning the game. They just want to get to level 85 ASAP and grind out gear.

WOW has many aspects to it's play. It can be fun in many ways. There is a great social aspect. You can work to make money off the auction house or you can do progression and go after the big bosses. It all takes a bit of time though when you are first starting out.

If your on a low population realm there are less people around. if your using the free game and it's limited capabilities that can also limit many things in all aspects of the game including only letting you get to level 20.

Your just starting. I would offer you be patient, work to level and consider moving to a paid full account if you have not done that yet.

A lot of people have opinions on this game as you have already seen. Some are vehement haters and others love the game and a lot of people just don't care one way or the other. The fact is every one likes different games and such. Don't let others decide what is fun or not fun for you. Find the aspects that work and go for it. If you want some information on your realm or help completing things here are some web sights:

http://www.wowprogress.com/
http://www.wowwiki.com/Portal:World_of_Warcraft
http://www.tankspot.com/

When it come to Warcraft you are not to late. Just get involved and have fun.

For me WoW stopped being enjoyable about a month AFTER getting to 85. Once there (at 85) you can do some cool raids and run fun heroics, but once you've done that.... It becomes sooooo boring.

Honestly the ride up to 85 I found to be the most entertaining. So, I wouldn't be in a hurry to get there, enjoy the ride up to 85. Because once your there... there is nothing but a bigger hole to fill you time with...

So, when does the fun start? Depends on your definition of fun...

Looking back, I don't think it was ever "fun".....

LOL

Obviously you were enjoying it while you were playing?

I still play now, all be it not as much as I used to. WoW can be alot of fun if you group with a few mates, even if you get to know a few people through the game and add them as friends.

Also, I'm pretty sure that you wouldn't have gotten to choose what server you go into with the trial pack? And that they actually limit how much you can interact with people in the trial. There are defintely more populated servers, even at low levels.

Lulz... I bet you were on the Paragon team huh?

I can't get enough of all the "Waste of time, RL > wow derpuhderp" haters in here.

Just because you lamos can't hold down real life and a game at the same time doesn't mean others can't.

I raid, currently 4/7 Heroic in Firelands, hold down a 40 hour a week job, pay for my car, house, bills, put money in my 401k, and do everything else you tarts who claim it's impossible do.

Well you should play during an expansion release because it seems lots of players start making the new races so you can find others during that time. Also it depends on the server population and timezone and lastly most players are at the max level. I stopped playing since BC so I am not sure how it is now:S
