What do you all think?
This is also the exact experience I had, I really didn't like it. After around a year passed I decided to give it another shot and did another trial, the same thing happened. People said to me if I got into it, as in got past the first few days of playing it and not liking it then I would never find myself off it, hmm, I don't know, I just didn't like it.

I'm an EVE player and love the game. You don't need to spend weeks or months getting to max level just to raid. You can start pvping almost straight away and, if you have the skill, you can excel from the moment you start. It's an MMO, so there's a lot of grind but the game is very cruel. When you lose your ship in PVP you lose everything on it, whereas WoW is easy mode PVP. In EVE we call it carebear PVP.
I was afraid I was the only EVE player here! Props to you!

I played WoW for a few weeks, didn't like it. The grind was too different from that of EVE. That and leveling is no fun. EVE is entirely based on player skill, not time played. A one month old character could easily take on a several year veteran. Fittings ("gear") do play a part it in, but not nearly as much with WoW.

Also not nearly as much control, too regulated and restricted.

Yes and Yes. I didnt die a lot and infact my higher level friends help me a lot and I got 3X experience for the trial peroid because my friend had ome kind of bonus thing and still I thought it was just way too slow. The game seemed fun and I get why people like it but the game speed needs to be at leat doubled before I'd be able to sit through all the boring parts.

I hate when that happens. It's a glitch with Blizzard's servers. Try reinstalling it, it should be in your inventory along with heart beat sensors and infrared goggles.

If you like fantasy MMOs of any kind, I can't imagine you wouldn't like WoW.

I have played at least a dozen MMOs over my 15+ years of playing them; WoW is the only one I still play. (Rift open beta tomorrow... get to give another one a shot now!) Most MMOs, I haven't even paid for beyond the initial trial month or whatever was given free, except for 1 or 2.

Having just started a Worgen Druid, I can honestly say, their beginning area and the storyline that takes you through it is the best of any of MMO I have ever played. I know people starting out probably don't want to have to buy the game and all the expansions just to play a Worgen, though, but even the other starting areas are different after Cataclysm and were never hard. (Makes me want to go try a goblin now too!) If you're level 1 trying to kill level 6 creatures, you're probably going to die. (Also, if you died and took the resurrection from the spirit healer "ghost" in the graveyard, you get a 10 minute penalty to stats... go back to your corpse and take the resurrection there!)

I enjoy leveling / questing in WoW... if you think that is a grind, you probably have never played EQ. I know that's a completely different animal, but in that game, there was nothing TO do except get into a group and sit in one spot in a zone (if it wasn't already camped) and pull creatures non-stop for hours to get a FRACTION of one level; no questing, no soloing, RARE gear upgrades... The questing in WoW keeps you moving and earns you gear that will keep your equipment sufficient for the next zones... you definitely don't have to go BUY gear, but as you earn money, strategic upgrades will certainly help. (Of course, my worgen with 4 peices of BoA gear + guild xp bonus has me absolutely shredding everything right now!)

Starting out, you need to decide what role you want to play and play your character accordingly. If you are trying to beat stuff up with your staff as a mage... you're doing it wrong. If you're trying to kill stuff with your bow as a warrior... you're doing it wrong. The first 9 levels are spent pretty much just teaching you how to pick up a quest, how to hit a skill button and how to move around the game. Once you hit level 10, you open up your talent trees and your character will really start to grow in whichever direction you want. Of the 3 major roles (damage, healing, tanking) a couple of the classes can do any of the three (not simultaneously, of course) and most other classes can do at least 2 of them. Even the pure damage classes (mage, hunter, rogue, etc..) have significant differences that allow you to change your playstyle.

You can solo to max level in WoW, although grouping will speed it up a bit and help you get better gear through dungeons. Enter the dungeon finder... once you hit level 15, you can put yourself in a queue to join other people and it will automatically teleport you to a level-appropriate dungeon which will provide you with bosses to kill and an extra reward for finishing the dungeon. Yes, sometimes you get idiots, but for the most part, people know them and will fly through them.

If you have a friend that wants to play as well, or already plays and wants to start a new character, you can link your accounts together through the "recruit-a-friend" function and earn some nice rewards including +300%xp (I think it is) when you level together. As well, there are plenty of guilds on any server that will take anyone in. Here's another way to find people to hunt with and now, with Cataclysm, you can also receive some additional benefits (more XP for quests & kills, more gold, faster movement speed, etc, etc...) as well as get you into some more dungeons and raids or even PvP (you can still do all those things without a guild, however).

I know this is long, but I enjoy WoW and just wanted to add my thoughts... last thing I wanted to comment on was the graphics. A lot of people rag on the game for the "cartoonish" graphics. The game was never designed to have hyper-realistic looking graphics. In my experience, most games that try to do that still look like computer graphics and never achieve whatever it is they were trying to and usually sacrifice a lot in terms of gameplay. The artwork and design behind the zones of WoW have always been appealing to me. The ambient sounds and background music really enhance the feeling of being in the game. They've put together a huge variety of environments and they do a good job of making you feel immersed in the game. Aside from that, the number of "easter eggs" and references to outside culture is huge. There are plenty of humerous events and things to keep it refreshing. "Camel Tow" quest in Uldum, anyone?

Bottom line, WoW is very polished, pretty well balanced (still tweaking after these last patches), provides massive amounts of gameplay, offers regular content additions (including new raids & PvP for free after an expansion), is well maintained and is the most successful MMORPG ever (by a huge margin). Is it for everyone? Obviously not... but with 12 million subscriptions, they must be doing something right.

Ya I could never get into it. I had a friend play with me till I got till lvl 48 then he quit and most the people on there are rude so I cant find someone to play with most of the time.

I gave up after a month just seemed like a huge grind for loot that I didnt care about.

You need two things to make WoW enjoyable.

1. WoW-pro guides leveling addon w/ the guides. It basically tells you what quests to do etc. to level up quickly.

2. A guild.

It's not hard to get either. The fun in WoW is from the end-game raids/heroics.

I like WoW mostly. Haven't played in a couple months though, just haven't felt like it. I'm going to go ahead and call BS on the dying to wolves within the first 20min. It's practically impossible to die in the starting zones anymore. NOTHING aggros you, NOTHING links. It didn't used to be that way (like when I started). But they made the starting areas a complete cake-walk about a year or so ago. So unless you just plain suck at gaming in general, there's no way in hell you died repeatedly in the first 20 min.

I'm not saying you have to like the game, god knows I hated on it constantly until my friend bugged me to play with him and I got started. But at least come up with a better excuse. You don't like it, fine, don't play it. I tried EvE for a couple weeks, it was cool, but I got bored incredibly fast because all of my time was spent offline, waiting for my Learning skills to max out (and now they've done away with the Learning section completely lol).

Some MMOs just don't click with people, and that's fine. Hell in the past 7 years I've played... 10 different MMOs and only 3 have really clicked with me.
