Well I'm not a Wow hater. I have two yearly subscriptions. However for the aforementioned reasons I will not be renewing. T E R A has an awesome combat system where you have to shoot like a FPS game. You have to dodge also.

And yet, after being told over and over again, ignorance pursues......

"OMGPANDASAREFORKIDS" "This looks like a cartoon game" "Its a marketing ploy to bring all of Asia!" (FYI, lots of racism there, im sure most of Asia would not buy a game only because it has Pandas) and "*** is with Pandas. They never were here" or " Panda in lore was only a joke"

Pandaren have been in WoW lore a long time and play vital roles in the lore. I dont know what cartoon game you play where you have savage spells and moves and involve bloodshed and lots of killing. The whole marketing ploy comments are so ridiculously stupid, I dont know why im even bothering. Lastly, Im pretty sure Pandaren weren't made as a joke. How would you know they were meant as a joke? You weren't in that room when the lore was being made.

WOTLK onetwobbq PVP ha burst down someone into oblivion in a global, PVE you could pug it all
Nostalgia, humans are very good about forgetting the bad. Most people I knew in high school reminisce about how much fun it was for them. While in high school though they complained daily about how much it sucked. Either their life sucks really bad now and by comparison it was better or they have selective amnesia. Which I think is the issue with World of Warcraft players, they only remember the fun stuff and not all the stuff that made them rage.
Just my 2 cents.

agree. Some of the changes aren't bad at all. the older expansions were grindfests. I'm sure some people enjoy the grind, but for me, having played from Vanilla to Cata, albeit in spurts for the later expacs after BC, I'm glad they did some changes to make it easier. It didn't make sense that only a handful of guilds were doing Naxx a few weeks before BC came out. Granted, I miss little things like epic kiting, but i move on.

I haven't been playing as much as I did in Vanilla + BC, but I wouldn't say it is because of the direction Blizz went with the game. It's just I found other interesting things to do with my time, and subconsciously I don't want to commit as much time in the game anymore as I did in college, which looking back, I hated in the back of my mind, as I chose to forgo more important things.


P.S. LFG and LFR we're so horrible in Vanilla, I don't know how people miss it. (I do miss the funny global LFG chat though)
