[Joystiq] Blizzard buffs the bejeezus out of WoW's Scroll of Resurrection - Page 5

post #41 of 60
My career in WoW burned bright and quick. I played back in the Vanilla days before BC came out for about 6 months. I did enjoy it while I played, but quickly saw that putting 4-5 hours into raids was just too much time to justify cutting out real life activities. I did max out in that time and was able to be a part of taking down MC, DWL, and the jungle place (can't remember the name). When I heard about the whole Panda thing I instantly knew that WoW had jumped the shark. This game is plummeting back to earth quicker with every mistake Blizzard makes.

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.

It's because Blizz sees the scroll as an opportunity to get one of your buddies back into the game to play with you. If I told my friend he really needs to start playing WoW again, but we wouldn't actually get to do much playing together until he leveled for the next month, that's a hard sell. But if I tell him we'll be at the end game grouping for heroic dungeons and raids by the end of the week with this scroll, that's much more appealing.

I agree it does come off as a desperate move, but I see where they're coming from.

Panda's will be in the next expansion due to a "joke" of sorts that devs made to gamers in WCIII:Frozen Throne. They aren't just pulling cute fuzzy bears out of their butts for giggles and attracting children.

Kind of like the secret cow level joke/rumors in Diablo, and the addition of a secret cow level in Diablo II.

It's the kind of thing Blizzard does.


On Topic: While this won't get me to play, its a hell of a deal, especially for people that had a few level 80's already and want to try out a new class in Cata, but don't want to grind again. The free upgrade to Cata was somewhat tempting at first, but EVE is so much more fun, that I couldn't split my time between both.

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

I so miss that...

Classic servers will come, don't worry. Once WoW is below 1 million, I'd expect it. (We're still years out from this point though)

I think that would be a day late and a dollar short, they should honestly do that now, and i would bet Blizzard would see a surge of people coming back.

I have heard of this being spoken about from time to time, but nothing official.

I do know before every expansion (even BC) a "Classic" mode was suggested by players, (numerous times) each time it has been shot down.

I think it would be a good time for Blizzard to have some classic servers. I would honestly renew my subscription.

They won't do classic servers until they're done with expansions imo. Because then no one would buy the new expansions smile.gif
