Again like Mod has stated and what others have accpeted, did you try and make friends??? Did you try to help people out, perhaps go to the battle grounds and kill a couple players? Did you get in a fun guild? If your not grouping and communicating, then this game is gonna SUCK for you.


-If you don't wish to play with others in this game, get a couple (or more) good online firends, or play with a friend you know IRL....This is NOT the game for you-

This is not a single player game. You CAN go out and solo. You can do quests alone and you can go kill endless boars in the Elwyn forest to get that next level. But if your not talking with people while doing this, yea, its prolly going to get old. Go out and get in a guild, make a couple firends, and spend your time leveling up grouping with people and if your not grouping, at least communicating with somthing.

EDIT: Just an FYI...I can't play single player games too much because of this. If I am playing a singleplayer game I am either going to stop after 20 mins, or I will be talking to a friend thats in the same room as myself, or I am talking with over the phone or vent. Games just dont seem to fun if your not communicating with someone.

However, some people don't need that. In a singleplayer game you have a storyline thats forcefed to you so you have somthing to cover up the monotonous grind that you are doing. All the FF's have grinding. Anything where you have levels you will probably end up grinding. This is the same game, except the grinding is longer, and you only get the story if you wish to hunt it out yourself, and you have a chat interface there so you can communicate in the game itself....Its prolly just as quick as CS:S (I do play CS:S quite a lot too BTW) perhaps even quicker because you have to do a lot of thinking quick when you see that warrior getting ready to charge you as you are just finishing up killing your last monster for that quest your on.

EDIT Some more: Also, I just remembered about The Burning Crusade. It adds 10 more levels that take around the same amount of time that 1-60 did. But it also changes the game A LOT. Cap raiding size in dungeons will then be 25. Most of the dungeons will be capped at 10 and if I am not mistaken, the highest raid dungeon is in fact capped at 10....This means an easier time getting groups together and more focus on each single person pulling their weight while going through a dungeon.....this is going to be badarse!!!! Also, as you lvl up from 60+...youll be getting equivilent stuff to the things people got raiding over the last year and a half...I think a much larger portion of the community will now have access to all the good items now Also, the PvP system is being revamped....and it looks to be MUCH MUCH better....go read up on it because I should prolly get back to work!!!

I played with a bunch of people and a really good friend. Good company can't make up for crappy game play. I find it so funny that people say "you have to do (blank) to enjoy the game". If it's a good game you don't have to do anything other than play the game. I've played MMORPGs for about 9 years now and WoW is the worst one I have seen.

If you got to lvl 34 by killing numerous amounts of boars and questing, i can see why you hate the game so much.

Tried Everquest 2 and WOW, i doubt i reached higher then level 15.
My biggest problem was the repetetivnes and the way charaters are limited in item usage (why do i have to be lvl 20 to be able to wear some armour shoulderpads or some sword) i couldnt digest that.. And some of the monsters to kill were rediculous too.. crabs? rabbits? millions of them ...Oh please.

I also dont understand why is 90% of all MMOs based on some magic and dragons crap.

If ya'll loking for something fresh or non magical .

try these.

www.hitechcreations.com (WW2 online flight sim)

www.wwiionline.com (ww2 online)

www.rfactor.com (online car sim)

www.liveforspeed.net (online car sim)


oh yea, and if you like playing games for money (BF2, quake, CS etc).

www.prizefight.co.uk. (i hope this site takes off)
If you were able to buy any armor you wanted the game would be over powered by rich nubs that buy gold online.

Also i think its so dumb to fight about if you don't like the game why post and start a flam war really lol. Yeah you can do it if you want nothing in the TOS but is there any point, no all it does is get people mad. I hate posting in this dumb topics to see a group of people jump on others for liking a game if they like the game more power to them.

WoW Xfire min - 6,360,063 they must be doing something right.

WoW is boring to me. Mostly because I play by myself. For some reason I just cant make friends in MMO's.

Now, there must be somthing I am missing, here, because over 7 million people are obsessed with that game, and reposts say that somthing like 40% are addicted to it... What am I not seeing?
nope, u got the whole thing.. people who suck at games that require skill play WoW cause its the only thing they can do. *generalization*

I find mmorpg's typically boring, too...unless there's actual role-playing involved. Then it's the most addictive thing there is.

Case in point: I picked up Neverwinter Nights because a friend was playing it. I played the single-player game for a few hours, and yawned, then went online, and tried out a few servers. Again, once the novelty wore off, it was boring.

But then my friend introduced me to the server he was playing on. A server dedicated to actual role-playing of the character, and very little emphasis on the power-leveling. You could only speak in-character, and you were pretty much forced to adventure in groups of four. That's when I became addicted.

My wife eventually had to intervene, and I've sworn off mmorpg's ever since. (Thankfully, she loves the Half-Life series, so fps's are safe. )

Yah, thats what Im like.. when I first got it, I was addicted for the first month, then I completely lost interest and I dont play it as much anymore..
