That was quite a post Soldrethar./applauseI totally disagree with all of it. But nice post anyway.Cheers.
Cata was a good experiment, but it was rushed. Blizzard knew they couldn't put another stop-gap raid in, because they didn't have one ready at the end of WotLK, and they didn't want to disappoint raiders, so (in my opinion) they released Cataclysm too early. The result was a really weak expansion.Mists will bring a lot of people back, though, and make the game a lot more like it was in WotLK. There's just a lot more cool stuff, a lot of new things, a more coherent story because it all takes place in one continent, and a ton of new raiding content. Combine that with the new BGs, the new talent system (which, having tried it, kicks ass), and the sundry other improvements to the game, and it's going to be a good time.For people complaining that the game is too accessible: get off of your high-horse. The game wasn't any less accessible during Wrath, there were just fewer ways to gear up. But, it's not like it was difficult to get geared, get into a group, and down the Lich King. Heck, I played on Mannoroth Alliance during Wrath, and there were groups pugging HM Lich King about a month after it was released. The fight wasn't easy, it just wasn't hard, with that high of a population, to find a group of competent players to do it. Even Blizzard's own numbers back up that fact: more people raided ICC than raided the BWD, Tot4W, and FL.Mists is a damn good expansion, it feels a lot more like the Lich King days than Cata. Like, you just feel like you're always working towards something cool, not just grinding rep for an arcanum or JP for some gear you'll replace in short order. If you haven't played the beta, don't be such a skeptic. It's really, really great.
Something I've noticed about the people who has quit WoW.....Will be back. Lol. They usually complain about something every year, then end up loving the game and start playing again. I'm not saying it will bring back 3.5 million. But it will bring back ALOT of that 3.5. They can't stay away from WoW that easily.
