First of all I want to salute all of you who join this post and tell you that I expect opinions on this new change to World of Warcraft both bad thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif and good thumbsupsmiley.png and if possible do the poll as well smile.gif .

On 25th of September the WoW expansion will arrive together with many changes, but the most important are:
-Dungeons, Raids, and Battlegrounds
-New zones
-Scenarios
-New class
-New cap level

Everyone is very excited and there is a really big campaign going on, but this expansion is similar to the other expansions since Burning Crusade, I believe now it's more about marketing and investing money in commercials than in the game. In 2012 WoW has around 8 mil players down from 12 mil in 2008. In addition most of the MMO these days go free to play and WoW is the only popular MMO which keeps a cost/month to play the game.

I have been playing Wow from 2004 to 2011 on Retail and on Private servers as well. The most enjoyable and entertaining period of playing Wow was the patch from Wow to Wow TBC since then I feel like all the expansions are the same thing under a different name and color,
I was thinking that the success of new expansions stands all in the new class and continent created, but how many continents and classes can you make?

The system spec in Mop have doubled from Cataclysm( I compare the recommended specs because that how the games should be played)
256 Mb video card to 512 Mb and dual-core processor. Some people still have bad system specs but they enjoy playing games, as and advantage the technology is cheaper now but it still requires and investment if your computer is outdated.

What I think think Blizzard should do with WoW in the future is make it free to play, sell in game miscellaneous pet or object something that doesn't increase the power of the character in game. Focus when they make expansion on PvP expansions and on PvE expansion separate servers and expansion. More competitions and contests plus charity events, the community gives a lot to Blizzard so Blizzard should give something back to the community.

Sorry for any mistakes or statements you don't agree with you are free to express yourself.

Respect Greenlace !

The problem with wow expansions have not been that they are all the same to me. It is their needless changing of fun classes that make them less fun. I quit wow during cataclysm because the expansion ruined the paladin for me and I had investd so much in items for him that it annoyed me to play alt instead of him lol. I may give mists a try in a few months after I have heard max level opinions from friends that still play. Bl2 can keep me busy in the meantime.

It's a win because tons of kids will buy in to this same easy crap content. So Blizzard will pad their pockets with millions. I wish games like this would die already, but there's too many people out there who love games where they don't have to think.

I know, I meant that they should bring more things to sell to cover the cost of unsubscribers. Maybe the concept to buy your own house in WoW for example smile.gif

looking forward to mists. Been playing since Vanilla beta.

I think mop will bring some good things, for one your going to see them release content patches faster now I guarantee it with GW2 out and how Rift has been pumping patches and now a huge expansion.

I don't see it hurting blizzard at all. I mean people have to remember the game is 8 years old now, some people have simply moved on, only left to flame WoW. Just take what people say about wow or mop with grain of salt.


For me the game has grown up with me. It came out when I was 19 in college and I am now 27 and now that I have a wife, a child on the way, a dog, and I am a homeowner with a full time job, the game has become accessible to me "growing up" and that's exactly why I still play it and get enjoyment. It is accessible especially with LFR(yeah it's not hard but at least people can do raids on their own time and still SEE end game content).
