Re: World Of Warcraft?

Well yeah, not liking Star Wars to begin with would be a problem, but not a reflection on the quality of the game.

I haven't played since Jan...but I notice some comments on various sites that the game graphics are showing their age and in general people are tired and moving on to things like 'Rift' and I am sure when the Star Wars MMO comes out more people will leave WOW.
With every new MMO that comes out people make that prediction. So far it hasn't happened. WOW still has the highest sub base. I think TOR's subscribers will be made up of KOTOR, Bioware and Star Wars fans.

I have generally enjoyed the game and when I can play(pay for a month) make the most of it...I enjoy the races and the lore...my question is; Should Blizzard rebuild WOW from the ground up as a new game? Instead of just adding expansions on top of expansions. I don't know what the future of WOW is so forgive if there is news and info making this thread irrelevant.

[edit] I should add...I do think the graphics should be updated a bit and I really wish the character creation was expanded...I mean there are free MMOs that have more options.
Blizzard is already working on an MMO called Titan. I don't have any idea what that game is about, but their focus as far as new game development goes will be that. I agree WOW should have more options such as better character creation and a form of player housing. Since these things have been asked for ever since the game came into existence, I doubt they will happen. I don't know why, but there it is.

Re: World Of Warcraft?

^ Titan is supposed to be an MMO-FPS, or so I've read. So not really a WoW-replacement.

Re: Mists of Pandaria

I'm optimistic about it. Some things I read from the Blizzcon coverage that resonated with me:

A) A stronger focus on fun. Cataclysm on the whole is not a very fun expansion (in my opinion) and was certainly not all that fun on release with the harder-than-necessary Heroic dungeons being the main problem.

B) Multiple paths to advancement. Valor points from dailies. Raid finder for easy version raids. The time has passed when I wanted to commit to a raid schedule but I'd still like to see the content.

C) New huge continent with no flying till 90 (yay), loved this in Wrath.

D) Melee healer. Healing is my favorite spec and playstyle and an all-new way of healing is very exciting.

One thing I'm not sure about but I hope they fixed is that heroics should not be so dang long as they were in Cata. 2 hours is too long.

Anyway, I will definitely be checking it out.

Re: World Of Warcraft?

Finally got into the Diablo 3 Beta today. It's very nostalgic so far.

Re: World Of Warcraft?

I'm loving patch 4.3 so far. Finished all 3 of the new 5-mans pretty easily last night. They are really fun. This morning I transmogrified my Jaina's Staff to the old plant-based model that was a quest reward at 20, looks very druidy. My ilvl is not high enough to try raid finder yet.

Re: World Of Warcraft?

I will ask this here...is there a non-MMORPG similar to WoW? Like maybe something on a console? Like an RPG(in a medieval fantasy world) where one can create a character and do quests...without the social aspect of an MMO?

Re: World Of Warcraft?

Yeah, quite a few. You have The Elder Scrolls IV:Oblivion and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, both of which are sort of like MMOs without the online part. Then you have Dragon Age 1 and (to a lesser extent) Dragon Age 2.

I'd recommend all of the above, and there's also a new one, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, which goes on sale in a few weeks for consoles.

These give a very similar experience to the MMO gameplay but, like you said, minus the social aspect. For me that's the best option, because my gaming time can be very sporadic and I'd never have the kind of consistent gaming time to actually be social on an MMO and make it worthwhile.

Re: World Of Warcraft?

I like WoW but I just don't have the funds to enjoy it. I hope by the time MoP comes out I can upgrade from BC to MoP and enjoy a few months of play.

That's Curt Schilling's studio and there are some really talented people working on it. I've heard nothing but positives about that game.

It's also supposed to be the fore-runner to an MMORPG based in the same game that they are currently working on.

And I can't recommend Skyrim enough. Gets a bit repetitive to look at after a while, but it's a very deep and fun game that you can play in many different ways over hundreds of hours. Definitely worth the money.
