Have you played WoW lately. Troll haven and birthplace of the modern eager. The reason I am going to let my sub expire.

WoW is my drug of choice... I won't lie. Even though I don't play it much I hate to see it go. It had a nice run.

Guys, seriously. FFXIV hasn't even been out a month and we are already complaining about end game? WoW has been out for almost a decade now, the only content it has is end game. I want SE to spent the first year getting the beginning and mid game content full, then put a big focus on end game. If you already have completed dark light sets, then get a job or something. Geez.

pretty much this, my highest level class at the moment is a 25 weaver.

as for the people saying WoW is dead, it still has 8million subs, more then any other MMO on the market. Not to mention the expac thats comming out. its always like this at the end of an expac, people finish the content, move onto other mmos or new releases that are out until the next expac drops.

You've misunderstood my post. While the 54% has been artificially pumped, the game has been unequivoqually going down. One can easily research on google trends a reliable normal distribution of its popularity showing a peak (let's call it 100%) being around the WotLK release and now being around 15 to 20%, where it was right after it was first released, like it went full circle, I expect it to be going down or at least being propped up to 15% max of its peak with each release unless something drastic and fundamental changes, also a ton of the subscriptions right now are bots and second accounts for the auction house, a phenomenon that didn't exist in the early days to that extend.

So far the complaints have come from a very small group of players who level capped in 3 days, and have apparently beat everything. I doubt they have, but they see FFXIV as a traditional MMORPG instead of what they devs have created. I"m perfectly happy finishing up my sub classes, and crafting classes till next content patch.
