And how is Guild Wars doing? last i played it had more balance issues than wow and was far more repetitive.
GW isn't even technically a MMORPG, so I dunno if comparing it to WoW is necessarily apt.
I really hope Blizzard doesn't screw up the BC and Northrend questing areas. I think they are good as they are: enough xp, great story lines and also a lot of difference between the zones.A lot of the old Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms questing areas where pretty messed up. I'm glad they changed that, but the way it is nowadays doesn't appeal to me neither. Everything is way to 'streamlined', almost every zone is one big phasing area. You are constantly going from camp to camp and at each camp you complete about 3-4 quests and then you go of to the next camp.I remember before cata, that when you went at lvl 12 to the Barrens and you reached Crossroads it was like: Here are 15 quests, have fun completing them all. So that was what you did and just by completing all the quests and not turning them in yet, made you ding about 3 levels and another 2 for when you turned them all in.I want those days back where a zone didn't contain 10 different phasing areas.I will definitly give up on questing in WoW when they turn the BC and Northrend questing areas into zones like you see in Kalimdor and EK.
IMO this all sounds like a bunch of bs... The game is horrendously redundant. The only good place to lvl anymore is Outlands simply because the gear is nicer, the areas are nicer, and the quests are more enjoyable. It was nice that they had changed the quests and layout of the old world, but in doing so they made the game terribly linear. It's nice for people with low intelligence who are afraid of uniqueness which this game is becoming more and more like. I still can't believe ppl are constantly asking stupid questions in trade when wowhead could've figured them out in half the time.Honestly this game is nothing more than a cash cow and they know ppl won't leave because they feel they need to stay for friends and stupid crap like that. Face it this game will be the same forever because they honestly don't give a rats ass about you. All major corporations are the same. They have their little representitives come out and act caring to the people and for all we know they really do care. But when it comes time for the money it's whatever is cheapest and best in the short term. Why else was this expansion released with numerous bugs that still haven't been fixed? This game is not going to be intended for the original market but now for coddled children who are too stupid to read a tool tip or too lazy to read a paragraph. Oh yeah and for ppl anxious for D3... Don't get too excited. Every video I have seen it is NOTHING like the original two. Again created for the coddled generation. Honestly it looks like disney is a part of it ffs. Anyways this is the only msg I ever left on wowhead and couldn't careless if you downrate it. It's all true.
