Re: World Of Warcraft?

Does anyone know the subscription numbers for Rift? Or actually for all mmorpg's?
I think WOW probably has more than all other pay to play combined.

Re: World Of Warcraft?

So with the final patch nearly upon us I can say that I never really got into this latest X-pac. I have two level 85s but spend most of my time online playing low level alts. The new low level zones are my most favorite thing in this x-pac but even they are flawed- the leveling pace is too fast, and the challenge has been nerfed too much. It's nearly impossible to die now pre- level 60. I like a lot of the changes they are bringing in 4.3 but what I really want is to see what the next X-pac will be like. Hopefully the next expansion will be more innovative. I feel like the gear grind now is exactly the same as it was in WotLK except that in WotLK the instances were better.

^Too small; DR

Yeah, the Cata expansion ruined the old zones in one detail: Too linear. They are basically now one long quest chain. If you want to enter a zone just to pick up that single quest line with the nice gear reward your SOL.

To answer the previous question. At it's height, WOW had over 12million players. 10 TIMES more than most other MMO's combined. I think WOW is now sitting at around 10 million players.

Re: World Of Warcraft?

I miss epic zones like Storm Peaks and Icecrown.

You know I used to think the people pining for BC were crazy back during WotLK but now I sound exactly like them except I'm pining for Wrath.

I think Vaj'Shir/Vash'Jir, how ever the hell you spell it, is quickly becoming the most avoided zone in the game.

I know I've never gone back.

I'm never going back to Molton Front either. My alts will just wait for the next expansion to gear grind. That was so incredibly boring..

In other news, finally finished the Insane title which I started when you still needed Shen'dralar (which I got), lol. Now I'm really at a loss. Been messing around on RP servers which is fun. Still in shock at how quick it is to lvl an alt and as someone said never die.

I'm giving WoW a break until Blizzard implements cross realm heirloom items.

Re: World Of Warcraft?



Their answer to The Old Republic... is to turn WoW into World of Kung-fu Pandacraft?

So much for WoW. Until this point, I've been okay with Blizzard's family friendliness, but that's going too far. On the plus side, Heart of the Swarm looks fantastic.

What is up with people using Kung Fu Panda as a putdown for MOP? IMO, it's one of the best family movies in the past half-decade (discounting Pixar, obviously), so that's a strong compliment!
