Hard to change a decade of habit

I literally grew up with this game, starting like a month before TBC pre patch. I've seen the game go from pure joy to absolute trash. I -want- to continue to play. I really do. I love playing with my friends pwning some noobs and just generally having fun.

I did the same thing in cata, where everyone I knew includding myself quit because the game just wasn't fun. I came back for MoP and enjoyed it even though I got perma banned twice. It's friends that make this game worth playing.

Ever since WoD Beta I knew my class was going to be an absolutely nightmare to play, but had hope for prot and it was fun as hell. Then they nerfed it two weeks into the season and I was forced back into one of the most boring specs every concieved.

Then I proceed to queue up and not play for half of every match. I mained last season as WMD, one of the absolute worst comps that you could play. We had to play every match perfectly, with a single mistake almost always turning into a loss. Every match needed to go like a flow chart, with one step out meaning disaster.

While we're playing blitz chess the enemy is playing uno with savestates. Watching people make emberassing mistakes and win like nothing happened just because it's RMD or shatterplay puts such a bad taste in your mouth that you can only take so much before japanese shit porn looks tastier then the garbage that blizzard is putting out.

I want to enjoy the game like I've done for the majority of the last decade. The game balance can be absolutely awful, but as long as my class is enjoyable to play and I have friends to queue with, I'll keep playing. Right now I haven't logged on in over a month and let my sub finally expire as I never updated my payment method from a card expiring.

I'll play legion 100% just to see if they fixed anything; and when it becomes obvious they didn't give a fuck yet again I'll probably be done for good

It's a vicious cycle, the best thing that ever happened to me was when I quit for a few months in WOTLK and all my ingame friends quit aswell.  Coming back after that, it's never been the same, but it's been easy to walk away, which has been better for me in the long run.

If anyone on this site makes fun of anyone for enjoying this game, whether it's frustrating or not, is a delusional douche bag.  Because it's either you are still playing this game you obviously enjoy it but wanna sound edgy and cool by calling it shit.  Or you don't play and you still lurk the forums dedicated to a game you don't play anymore which is more pathetic than actually enjoying the game in the first place.

I'm not really a lurker but I would like to share why I pop on the forums from time to time.  I quit a few months ago and on some slow nights, when there's nothing on netflix, my girl is busy, schoolwork is done, yes I consider renewing my account.  I pop on AJ to check out the scene, balance, community, and general wow activity.  Afterwards I usually take a depressed long sigh, then I close AJ, open up pornhub, run one out and head to bed.

Edit:  I'd say I pop on the forums once every couple weeks.

if they implented TBC arenas right this instant, would you really enjoy it? :)

Yes, and all mages/hunters would quit the game immediately.

Hunters were tricky and clunky to use, mana bar and mages had to setup burst.

This game is shit and will always be :)


The only way to fix wow is to kill it.

Rebuild game from scratch with same concept but better game engine (lower global CD system i dunno), more skill shots, movement/positioning based abilities etc.  Remove the easy access crap and make people grind UBRS all over again.

I don't understand why they wanted to "dumb down" the game for today's more sophisticated gamers.  Less buttons = good, removing skill/difficulty to execute abilites = bad.

I was just playing hearthstone and realized something that wow needs; that it had in the days of tbc/wotlk.

Class customization through talent trees.  

A huge frustration is lack of customization and no way to alter your class to "counter your counter".

If you are playing hearthstone and you are getting pissed getting shit on by aggro pal and face hunter decks.  You can take your favorite deck; REGARDLESS of class, swap a few cards and have a fighting chance.
