You're right. it does mean something. That WoW is an addiction. I've played it--almost couldn't stop. It's not all the hype... just addictive.... somehow. >.>

i dont understand my friends obsession with WoW. i play it now and again but it's hardly the best game, and certainly not the best gaming experience for newcomers.

When i was first introduced to WoW my friends totally overwhelmed me with addons..."Lightheaded" "QuestHelper" "spammenot" "CTMod" "FUbar" etc, etc. and because they are such addicts and its all second nature to them, they didn't understand my confusion over how to operate the addons - nevermind grasp the game mechanics - talk about blind...

This experience put my initial judgement on the game on a very low level...



And the ugly looking HUD in the game, ugh. no thanks, top this off with the "must-have" addons/mods, frankly it may as well be an entire image of binary. When i see these images it makes me question the entire games identity....

i'd be much happer with TES: Oblivion anyday.

My first char, and main one ( i also have a lvl 1 bloodelf...) is a Draenei Hunter, which, apparently, was a very bad idea as its considered a crap class. that character is now level 40+....

Another thing i disliked alot was the fact that when you pay for a month, its not actually a month's play time, but a real-time month, regardless whether you play it or not....and at nearly £10...that is steep, so when i pay i almost feel obligated to play!. this is probably why there are so many players in the first place.these people are not addicts, they just don't want to waste thier money.

This game is overrated. its a decent game, and i do enjoy it, but i don't play it on a regular basis.

1. Well that is a really ugly UI, but that's a custom one. The default UI looks fine.
2. Hunters are fine, definitely not a crap class. They're godly in battlegrounds and great in dungeons/raids.
3. The subscription fee isn't that much. It all depends on how you look at it. For me, I give up going to the movies once a month (2 hours of entertainment).
4. Mods are overwhelming when you start, yes. Just pick up 1 at a time until you get the hang of it and grab another. That's what I did.

Out of close circle of friends, all of us have played it properly at one point.
One had an account with 2 level 70's, then got banned for "racism", hes now got another 70 on a new account
Another had a 70 and a 60 and was banned for "sexual harrassment" (he said a gnome was cute lol) and he now has another 70
I'm the only one who doesn't play anymore, and i only stiopped cos it was stopping me doing any college work.
moral, don't start

Say yes to Uwe Boll imo so we can all sit down and laugh at the comedy movie of WoW or Warcraft. It'd be the best thing ever in my opinion due to the utter fail that it would be.

I think WoW can actually be fun to play at times, especially if you have a few friends on. I really don't mind the cost or feel cheated in any way.

I played Oblivion quite a bit when it came out and while I think it's a fantastic game in many respects, I don't think it holds a candle to WoW. In comparison, Oblivion is just lacking flavor to me; like eating dry toast. WoW has that Blizzard charisma that I've loved since StarCraft

So did anyone read any of the comments that were at the bottom of the article?

I'm betting more than a few of those people play WoW. There were lots of "EPIC" and "owned" (insert p instead of o at own peril).

Go home wow kids. Get a tan.
