Take a stand, quit wow - Thomas Jamison
Take a stand, quit wow
you know its amazing, since I quit two things have happened that may have driven me to quit wow.

The first, new races in the expansion, WTF, how much damn effort do you have to put to make new races, a fuckload thats how much, look at all the wasted time and effort that went into silvermoon and the exador, new skins, cities, zones quests, emotes, amanations etc etc for what, nothing, no one with 1/10 of a brain should give a crap, let me say this plane, RACES ARE NOT CONTENT! When your raids suck just like they do now (not one but TWO joumger worms!!!) in the expansion know where that dev time went and despair. If you want to play as race X just do a modle swap, its not that hard, just goodle it, you can easely change what you look like just by fidlying around with the files a little.

Second, THIS BULL CRAP, I love wow radio, hell if you only listen to one wow podcast its Blue Please with out a doubt. Just un-fucking believable that Activision (and it was Activision, you can be sure of that) would see a tiny sight blow there crappy overpriced coverage out of the water and freak out like this so close to the con.

For these and other reason including but not limited to the total dumbing down of your game and the amazing idioticy of the majority of the player base who STILL cant raid this dumbed down BS content. I implore all who read this to quit, find a better game, support a company who gives a crap abouts its fans and encourages them to be better instead dumbing it down for everyone.

Oh and Activison, I'll now wait to buy Modern Warfare 2 used before I give a red cent to you.

Since you are a raider, and have been around since launch (or pretty close to it), I understand your feelings. But for me as a casual, with lots of alts, a lot of this stuff is good news to me. I think that you have just been playing so long that you have lost all the fun in the game because you have done it all. I think eventually WoW will kill itself to the point that you will probably be able to solo the entire game, raids and all, with Epics that are sold by vendors for minimal amounts of gold. As for now, I'm still having fun with the game. Developing my characters in my head and the minimal amount or RP I can do with Brent. ^_^ Once SW:ToR hits, we will all meet there hopefully. Starting from scratch in a new environment could be good for all of us.

A parital respectful disagreement.

Races are content.

They are not END GAME content, but, as is obvious (and understandable) from your frustration, that's not WoW's focus any more, not really. New races add diversity, and depth. They add a new approach to the game, giving causal or new folks another possible hook to keep coming back. I enjoyed the hell out of the draenai starting areas, and people still keep saying flattering things about the blood elf starting zones. I find lore interesting, though frustrating in it's fluidity, and will likely roll a Worgen on day one. Your example is a bit fallacious, though, in that all that effort on starting areas was "wasted" in a completely different expansion, or are you comparing SSC, Tempest, and Hyjal to "Not one but TWO worms?" In fact, you should be comparing the Tournament to Z'A, which featured not 4 but 5 god-mode trolls....

That stunt with banning fan transmissions, though, is truly bullshit, and you're right, it's a sign that Activision's (dark) influence over WoW is growing, when they let DirectTV push them around in their own convention. Greed over fans.

I agree with Mil, though, in that TOR can't come out fast enough!

Re: A parital respectful disagreement.

I actually never got to run ZA but to the best of my knowledge it dident have BS jousting fights and was composed of more then a single room.

I dont know how close you follow wow mems but "not one but two worms" has become a wow meme about lazy content.

I should have a witty responce to the rest of your post, but I'll let the Biscuit answer for me cause I just got off work and am tired and sore.

Re: A parital respectful disagreement.

I hear sleep is a good thing.

And I know about the "meme," Bliz even used it as an achevement.

As for ZA, all I know is people last expansion were doing nothing but bitching about "God, bliz, ANOTHER troll dungeon, god, you suck," Sounds awful similar to me.

As for the Tourney, I'm not denying it's a lazy mid-xpac effort (And the raid doesn't have the jousting, btw), just that your comparison was off. *shrug*
