First of all this is not a compare game thread i was (Quit 7 months ago) a wow player myself. Recently im been playing different games in which I have enjoyed specially because is something different. I myself was one of the top hunters raiders in my server finished and cleared Cata but after that there was really nothing much to do for me. I tried pvp got bored having to farm so much to buy pvp gear, some friend i don't even understand the fun on farming mats all day. Guess people really get very into the game sometimes may a little too much. Well the reason I wanted to try this post (This my first time). Is because i ask one of my friend a simple question. What would you do when wow ends, his reaction was so bad is like i cursed his mother. Is true that WoW is been with us a long time but as well we all know everything has an ending. At some point we have to reach the end of the story before it gets dull for everyone. Myself enjoyed WoLK more than Cata it had a more impact on the story and it fits for me i even considered that as the end of the wow story. If you play the Warcraft 3 you would know what I mean. I still played Cata wanted to play before i decide to look for something else it had its boring and also very fun moments.

This was release long time ago this was also where everyone found out about the new Blizzard project called Titan. This chart has been out long time ago so maybe still true or some dates have changed. Just consider this true for a bit and follow the discussion. If this is still true WoW will end with 5 expansions. If look at the charts the date for MoP is not exact but is close this would be considered the 4 expansion. That leaves the number 5 that considering the chart will be released end of 2013 with the release/announcement of the unknown game Titan.
(Remember to this chart is outdated so this dates can be different in real life and we are just considering the chart still true for the discussion. They haven't been an update about this info to know if still valid, but true i dont see blizzard creating an expansion after lv 100.)
Myself, i think that after MoP it will be a battle with the old Gods and Sangeras. Considering that WoW subscriber totals have been declining with every new MMO that comes up, still with 10m I'm still there pretty sure there will be players by the time the last expansion hits.

So consider this reality for a bit and tell what would you do after you kill the last raid boss in the last content in the last expansion.
Would just stay there and repeat stuff over and over ?
Would you move on to better stuff or games ?
Is it hard for you to believe a day without WoW ?
Other interesting feedback....
Whats the thing in wow you enjoyed the game ? (I mean the mechanics, not the social aspect)
What things you seen in other game that can make WoW more enjoyable for you ? (I know there is always something you cannot play the game 5 years and not wish so that blizzard would add a feature you saw on another game.)
If you decide to quit in the future or already did like me. What game your playing now ?
This is not to offend or critic the game like i said i played and left but that's me not you. I'm very interested to read about your feedback.
