I honestly wouldn't recommend this game to any returning players anymore. New players might enjoy it but can't see old players getting anything else out of it than hot, steaming pile of disappointment.
Thanks bro, Did you play in Cata on Stormscale? Your nickname looks familiar. I'm not sure if I didn't duel with you then. I loved old Stormscale pre-MoP. Durotar full of PvP players so you was able to practice duels with every class and every spec 24/7. People say that Cata was bad expansion. I agree it began the downfall but it was still good compared to MoP and WoD. At least I had the most fun of WoW then as I had great guild and I've met a lot of my real life friends. One adviced me what to study and I'm even working with him in the one company. Good old times.
