    I'm pretty sure I will never find the mix of social and endgame raiding like I had in the guilds in TBC...
    That might be the reason many have a fondness to TBC that has depleted since. My friends list was put to heaviest use in TBC, and had some use in WotLK. I'm not sure I've used it much beyond tracking RL friends outside my guild on Cata. It seems to me that implimentations like LFD/FLR have turned out to be one of those "be careful what you wish for" kind of things. While it is nice to queue to play anything whenever you want, it really went to far in that there is no reason to form "working relationships" with anyone, even your own guild. In fact, for guilds that formed around social aspect rather than skill aspects those tools are often prefferable to guild-runs where you might have to teach someone the ropes of a dungeon they have not done before whereas pugs have a higher success rate especially considering the "vote to kick" those expendible, underperforming players.

    WHat makes me sad is that the previous generation of gamers were obviously a lot smarter then we are. Oh well hopefully they will stop dumbing down the content for those going into MoP, maybe by the time the next xpac comes out they will have a easy mode LFR?

    All of those

    Welfare Epics
    Easymode content (WOTLK+)
    Lack of Attunements / Group Quests
    Portals Everywhere/LFD (indluded this point because of LFD, portals are fine)

    Probably this. I think it's mostly a social phenomenon (losing part of the subscribers), though of course there are some players who simply don't like the game anymore/have played it enough.

    Flying mounts never bothered me except when everyone is using the same one (is it really so hard to be unique) ill agree on the easymode content and when the cata hcs were first released i loved it especially since Ret pallys had a viable CC that lasted longer than a dribble of piss (BC Repentance anyone?) and i have now unsubbed because the game is pandering (yes pun intended) to lazys and bads....notice how i didnt say casual? thats because by hardcore standards i was casual yet i raided heroic T11 and T12 (didnt get rag before nerf boo) and couldnt be arsed with T13 after the first normal partly because i killed the boss of the expansion why go over it again
    Those who want never get....those who get never need....and those who need get sweet FA

    Time and an aging player base. You can only play a game for so long before you realize it's just not doing it for you anymore.


    But I don't think WoW is in any sort of "downfall". Definitely not at it's peak, but it's not going anywhere.

    The thing I hate most about WoW is the vehicles. When these were implemented in Wrath I had a fit, and every time I have to use one in-game I get annoyed. Damnit I leveled my class to play my class! Not be forced to use these shotty vehicles in quests and OMFG they're in raids too.

    older generation of players growing tired of the game.

    imho - the biggest contributor is age. How many games have increasing interest/sales 7 years after being released? None?

    Other: People who insist WoW is dying. WoW may not be the 20-year old frat boy that it was, but it is still a respectable middle-aged man who can still throw down if needed.
    Call to arms, the trumpets sound
    Hand puppets storm the base, flags up now cannons rage
    All clowns head for the rear, slingshots fire to the air
    Toy horses start the charge, Robot chessmen standing guard
    Crossfire to the marionettes, Slip into the edge of death...

    Other: WoW hasn't had a downfall yet and probably won't for a very long time.

    How many games demand a sub and payment for each expansion? So yes if you comparing it to normal games, it's really unfair.

    There needs to be another option in the poll like: -What downfall?

  20. #140
    I think players are the only thing in the game that irritates me...and not every player...but the players who complain about how WoW is dead yet they are still paying to play. I've been playing since vanilla...if I am not having fun in WoW I'll quit. It's simple as that.
