The new playerbase in wow, caution to all players. Personal story. - Page 4

post #31 of 56
Wow community sucks nowadays. Too many kids, psychos and cavemen inside.
post #32 of 56
WoW community is aware of what happens in real life? I am amazed. wink.gif

When one of my friends was playing vanilla WoW back in 2004-2005, all he talked about was WoW this and WoW that. How his clan raided last night and how he wanted me to join him. The game must be boring to play now.

I simply never got into the swords and dragons and wizards and all the other unpronouncable characters.We had a kid in class that could tell you the most minute detail about WoW but he did not know what kind of gpu was installed in his computer (or cpu for that matter) .Really made me want to join up.

That is the player base this game targets. It was created during the PC boom when the prices dropped so low with eMachines and name brand pre built systems everyone could afford and were all setup and ready to go that all you needed to do was turn the thing on and you were connected to the world.

WoW is that easy. It takes no real skill or strategy to be an average player and make your way to the level cap without ever once grouping with another player. I was in the game the first two years and took numerous characters to level 50 (cap back then) and never once did I ever party with a single player or join a guild.

Don't knock the kid for playing a dummy proof game, he just fell into peer pressure and advertising like the millions of others who flock to a game just because it is the most popular. In the mean time very creative and challenging games go under because these drones can't play them instantly so they rip them to shreds in forums and reviews.

Welcome to the last ten years of internet gaming.

Have you played DotA? Every game is like a mini version of "go kill yourself" insults but they need to be said before the game ends tongue.gif

DotA2 is much better, but back on topic:

Last time I played WoW it wasn't anywhere NEAR that bad. That is really a shame to hear.

I just quit wow for good tonight. I've had enough of the so called players that the game has attracted lately. I was in guildchat just chattering away with people when someone said something about "what do you think about america". I should have known better than to get into a potentially political conversation and kept my mouth shut but everyone else was commenting so I commented as well. I expressed my opinion, which is not positive to say the least. I dislike the way my country is going and that is all i will say here as I know politics is not allowed on these forums. The end result was almost everyone online in guildchat attacking me, a few making dirty comments, and one flat out telling me to kill myself for my opinions. This statement to kill myself was followed with detailed instructions. Then an officer in guild tells me i am offending the guild and need to stop. At this point I had only been defending myself against the person who told me to kill myself, and I was told to stop defending myself and I could either leave or be kicked. I chose to take both characters out of the guild and just quit playing altogether.
Apparently it is perfectly acceptable behaviour these days to tell people they should die or to kill themselves when they have a difference of opinion from you. This is the type of trash that makes up the wow playerbase these days.
If you are remotely emotionally unstable and have had serious problems with suicidal thoughts and such as I have I do not reccomend this game to you as it is full of the most hateful things I've seen in awhile. The people are horrible as evidenced above. Don't waste your time with this one. It is full of childish wastes of space and If you are an unstable person you will pay a price for what small enjoyment you might get out of this game.

Am i the only one who noticed this and that he also hasn't replied?

i think actually suicide is a logical and prob naturally sound thought. after all, humans are only consumers (currently) we are the extremes of everything in nature and we tend to lean towards evil (currently perceived evil)

not saying this guy should kill himself, im saying dont criticize him for a very serious thought that if given to a judge who was tasked with saving the earth, would sentence half the population to this demise
for the greater good

not criticizing...seriously concerned, a couple years ago a kid on the bb misc said he was going to commit suicide then posted a live stream of him doing it. It was legit and maybe if someone would have talked him out of it....well idk but to the OP life is already short is it really worth making shorter? Obviously there is something you want changed atm it may seem impossible to change but surely there is another solution to your problem other then suicide.
