well your dumb for thinking that you were going to get an M- 14 with a reddot and a grenade launcher on it and you wasted the time to download install all the patches and everything so goodfight

Edit: Ugh, I didn't read the second half of this, but it's even more retarded than I thought. So, you don't like WoW and MMOs because they're not first person shooters? Nice. If I want to play Battlefield... I'll play battlefield.
LOL, that's how most PvP MMO's are. It's all based on what gear you get when you PvP. Whoever has the better gear wins. I sucked at WoW? LOL, apparently I only played it for 20 minutes and I never even bothered much after that. Because you know everything about me because you're me right?

Actually if you don't see it, I'm comparing PvP balance regardless of a game. MMO's are all based on gear + stats, whoever gets the best gear wins. Why do they they do high level raids? For gear. Why even get high level in the first place? For raiding to get gear. Why quest? To get gear. Basically to win you have to spend more time getting better gear to beat everyone else.

Sounds more like you're just WoW raging, LOL! Oh noes, I have to defend my favorite games from outside hatred. And if you couldn't read I did not mention anything specifically about WoW.

Meh, PvP on most MMO's are dependent on how long the person spent getting gear for their character and aren't based on skill. The only balanced PvP I know of is DCUO. A level 8 can beat a level 30 now that's what I call balanced. The lowbie is not left helpless. That's why I like FPS better, a lot more balanced nobody is going to be better because they have better gear or higher level. The winning portion is dependent on the person's skill in how they can handle weapons, their strategy, and teamwork.
I don't see a WoW in there, do you? Reading comprehension fail.

So it's illegal now for me to compare anything? I'm no allowed to compare PvP content? So does that mean I'm not allowed to think freely also and I should confine my thinkings to your specifications right? Like a hivemind right?

Read the quests, indulge in the story and you'll have a lot more fun in the game. The lore is actually quite fantastic.

I think WoW is a great game if you are just getting into it. It definitely offers the best questing experience now imo with phasing and cut scenes. A lot of stuff to do and collect for new comers. Lot of 5 man dungeons, mounts, and achievements. You can also level through PvP if that is what you like.

Being a long time player though, it has run its course with me. I was at 9k achievements before Cata came out, raided all through WoTLK and had most hard modes done in ICC. After hitting 85, I just felt like I was right back where I was, staring at another two years of raiding or BG queuing. I just feel like I done it all, been there done that. The expansion just doesn't offer anything truly new or refreshing to me, just the same blueprint with reused ideas every expansion. I did like the guild leveling and achievement system but I am not going to stick around just for that. I definitely enjoyed most of my time in Azeroth though.

Because saying that things are retarded is a good enough reason to be right? Right?

And if you couldn't comprehend my previous post before that I was replying to Furious Porkchop who mentioned that people hated BC2 because of levels and weapons and didn't honestly give it a chance. That's where I mentioned levels and weapons don't matter because the game is balanced. Where then you replied why do I keep comparing them implying that I did it several times before already but did not. The only thing I compared in that one post was PvP balance aspects of several games.

The OP should specify if he was talking about classic WoW, otherwise known as the real WoW, or the expansions to it, otherwise known as a PoS.

I tried WoW a few years back when a roomie tried to get me into it. I was OK, but when I asked when it got fun and I could start really playing with other people he told me it should only be a FEW MONTHS.
I pretty much just got up from the computer and said I didn't have time to grind for months just to get to the fun part.
Anyway, recently the GF got me a fair headset for xmas, so I tried to start getting in contact with some old friends from another state I grew up with. They got me on vent and have been playing WoW on and off for years. They had all just jumped back in for Cataclysm. They convinced me to get a trial account just to see if things were any better.
They were MUCH better. Leveling is apparently WAY faster than it used to be, and I linked my account to a long time friend which gave me X3 experience so I got to 60 in about a week of playing 3-4 hours a day. It slowed down quite a bit after that, but I was hooked.
And to those that complain about it looking bad...I guess I disagree. I got the DX11 command line, and got Radeon Pro to get crossfire working, and it looks great to me. It may be low poly, but the attention to detail shows me that this game has been crafted from the ground up. This game makes me almost think ART at times when I get to a new zone and see just how much time and effort must have been paid to it. The music is top notch as well, it's almost something I could listen to outside the game. And one of the reasons it's so popular is due to the fact that almost any machine can run it. I also love the sheer number of things to do and accomplish. It's like trying to get Achievements on LIVE or Trophies on PSN x1000.
MMOs may not be for everyone, and to some people GFX is more important than gameplay.
Just my 2 cents.
