[Joystiq] Blizzard buffs the bejeezus out of WoW's Scroll of Resurrection - Page 4

post #31 of 60
SWTOR just came out, and no one remembers when WoW was released?
The only people who played WoW when it was released were those who knew about Warcraft. It took another year before WoW really got going.

SWTOR is a better first release game. Come back in 2 or 3 years then compare both games.

Well then... seems like I'm going back to WoW after all. too good of an offer to pass up
post #33 of 60
If Blizzard would put out "Classic" servers I would consider going back. Imagine that, BWL = best gear in the game. Vanilla WoW just for the good times. Even with southshore pvp biggrin.gif

DAOC did this and the classic server was the most popular one thumb.gif

That's a very broad statement though, of course people will disagree. There are plenty of games that have sold more copies than WoW, but WoW has made way more money. Neither of those matter to most people. My favorite game, Super Metroid, didn't break any records that I'm aware of, and certainly fewer people have played it than WoW. I will agree with you though, that WoW is a great game, but different strokes for different folks, some people don't even enjoy MMOs, or RPGs.

I played WoW for a month, never liked it. It's probably because I had been playing MMO's long before WoW came out so it didn't seem like anything special to me. Somehow this seems really sad, like a generation of games has ended. But at the same time we have so much to look forward too.

The irony is, this is precisely why it's dying.


Was never a WoW fan but damn, even i can see the mistakes they're making with it. The introduction of the "Panda" race really put people off. People just don't take it seriously anymore (And clearly neither do Blizzard), those that do are young kids. Kids who arn't old enough to pay for their own WoW sub. The community sucked anyway, but now it's even worse. There's no reason to go on there.


I had a lot of friends (of similar age) who liked WoW and played it religiously. They'd frequently try to get me into it but i couldn't. It was boring, the quests were all the same, not my thing - i don't really like MMO's to be honest. Glad it's dying.

no offense to those who love WoW but this is a perfect example of one of the many reasons i disliked WoW. Seriously instant max level @.@ WoW created the new geenration of "casual+ lazy" mmorpg players who just want to play a mmorpg and get quick instant gratification without any effort in their part. I mean why play a mmorpg if you don't want to play it? This is like playing a generic console rpg and putting in some cheat codes to get max level or skip to the end of the game, what about beginning and middle of the rpg? do people forget its a role playing game?

This is like:
-playing final fantasy game/ and or any rpg for that matter and adding a button in the menu to beat the game for you. lol

I could go on but don't want to make this into a bashing thread but seriously people why is everyone so worked up to reach cap so fast a rpg is about enjoying adventures through your characters development not "call of duty casual generation" i want quick fast dumb down instant gratifications and enjoyment. Worst of all is that every single mmorpg released after has turned out to be a crap fest/clone and don't last long.

I wish they make mmorpg like the old days such as ff11/everquest/etc.

I somewhat agree, but to be fair, when you get to level 80 the game isn't over, there is still plenty to do at that point.

This is so tempting to get back into wow now, I just need someone that is willing to use a scroll. Any takers? I have been missing wow since I quit before Cata was released but I didn't like to direction they were taking, I might be willing to get back into the hardcore raiding scene now with this.
