I explained why it's bs, you just didn't read it. For nearly a year now you CANNOT die in a starter area unless you LEFT it and got attacked by monsters you weren't supposed to be fighting. Every enemy in the starter area is yellow... aka they will NOT attack you unless you attack them, and they don't link with each other. Therefore, unless you completely and utterly fail at the combat aspect of the game, it is impossible to die in a starter area in the first 20 minutes

right back at you.

Well technically if you go and attack something then you can just sit there and let it kill you.

I remember before they beefed up the health regeneration in early levels that if you didn't wait enough time between attacking creatures even if they were non-aggressive that you would still die because your health didn't go up fast enough.

Well, they added that pretty much around the same time they tamed down the starter areas. That's also exactly why I included the comment about "utterly failing at the combat aspect of the game". Unless you simply cannot grasp the combat mechanics, or even simply watch your own health bar, it is impossible to die in the starter zones.

wow ruined mmorpgs. mmorpg makers have to cater to the wow kids in order to make them feel comfortable making the switch. and since apparently wow is the only mmorpg that they have played, they think they did it right. fail.

oh, and wasd movement is just about the WORST idea ever. i wont go into it, but those who have played a lot of mmorpgs will know whats up. the left hand is made for hotkeys, not walking forward.

I don't find it fun at all. Seen the "intense" level 85 run throughs even and still wouldn't find it fun.

So first you say WoW is too easy, but then you point out that it is challenging to use WASD as well as hotkeys... which makes the game harder. So which is it?

Personally I hate point to click movement. It makes the game feel like a RTS. I tried playing Silkroad once and I just couldn't put up with that point to click nonsense.

Besides you can enable point to click movement in WoW so what is the big deal?

Played nearly a dozen MMOs, and WoW did a LOT of things right. Did it do it the best, no, but they did it everything well enough that they have millions of players. My favorite MMO I've ever played was Final Fantasy XI. Much harder and much much more unforgiving than WoW ever was or ever will be, but it had a much more personal feel to it.

No MMO will ever get everything right for everybody, it's impossible. WoW just happened to get enough of them right for everybody to have the biggest playerbase.

Also, WASD is perfect for movement, it's natural. Unless your combat rotation is retardedly huge (in most cases that's a caster, and if so, guess what, you're typically not constantly on the move) you're fine. Also, on that note, Razer Naga ftw, love mine, even for non MMO games.

Still, I don't have anything against people for not liking WoW, I enjoy it (although I haven't played in 2 months, RIFT beta has been keeping me busy). I'm merely arguing to the OP that he either tried it over a year ago and just now decided to post, or he's terrible at combat and watching his own health if he died MULTIPLE times in 20 minutes in a starter area lol.

I felt the same when when my buddy first started playing and I was into FFXI. I watched him raid and do battlegrounds and pretty much thought meh. Until the first time I did them for myself. Watching and doing can produce 2 different feelings about something. Not always, but they can.

When I first started playing a friend recommended in to be, so I tried the trial and didn't like it at all. I stopped playing it after about the first ten minutes.

Then I gave it another shot on another server, met a person who helped me level from 1-20 which back in the day felt like forever. I got addicted, bought a subscription and it was just a go from there.

I play every day if I get the chance

i started playing wow about a month ago. It is not exactly fun. Gameplay is extremely repetetive. I made a paladin tank and it is so stupid. Just stand there and, thats it. yea you have to hit a few buttons but nothing that makes me feel like its fun. I tried mining and blacksmithing and it doesnt make the game better. All i do when i play is random dungeons and when I get really long one i just quit out. I can only play wow in small doses. Nothing in the game makes me feel like im actually thinking. heres my set up. hit 3,4 (2 for large mobs, 1 for single enemies)(repeat a few times), 6,4 3 and so on. If my healer is bad then it gets fun, other than that, no energy management, no moving, and let me not dare to pick up my loot because i would just be called a noob and that i am slowing everyone down. O and don;t ever say you don;t know what you are doing, it's just a grief parade after that. I play on shatterd hand, horde side and this is always the case.

In my opinions WoW is a glorified chat room where little kids come to greif people who actually want to play. Its like every patch nerfs some over used skill. I guess when you have a game like this you have to.

I still play WoW every now and then with my nephew but there is no way in hell that i could every be "Addicted" to this game. I just dont see the "OMG. THIS GAME IS EPIC".
