Yeah spending time on forums talking about these stuff is surely as free as playing the gameLove the free time.
Still subscribed, I don't have any intention to unsub by the end of my subscription time either. Loving the expansion so far.
Not yet, but it's probably coming. I only resubbed for MoP because someone else picked up the tab/is paying my monthly sub (it's hard to say no when someone else is throwing their money at it.) and it was fun at first but now I'm at a point where I parked my shaman in Halfhill, harvest my songbells, make my tailoring cloth, churn out my daily darkmoon card, and then log back off. I don't do dalies, because I hate questing and I hear they're 'optional' anyway. But because I don't do them I don't have anything to spend my valor on, so I also don't do heroics because what's the point of getting more valor I can' use? I do PuG raids once/twice a week (maybe an 8 hour commitment at most) and beyond that log in maybe 30 minutes a day.
Seems like a waste of funds, even if they aren't my own.
All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.
As far as other forms of entertainment: Boderlands 2 is proving to be pretty amusing, actually. Assassins Creed 3, also pretty fun. Guild War's 2, still fun (and lacks a monthly fee.) I just bought Stephen King's latest collection of short stories for a mere 5$.
And best of all I'm never forcing myself to do those things so I can keep up with the game (the farm and the daily cloth/card in this case.)
I've been unsubscribed since about the end of the patch 4.0 cycle, or right before patch 4.1. I don't think I'm ever coming back as a subscriber, certainly not this expansion at any rate.
Meh people have unrealistic expectations from blizzard. They have never been in a greater production time with d3 expansions, starcraft expansions, project *m'fing possibly badass new software 240 bit game" titan, wow expansions and patches and possibly a movie with wow's 10 million subs as its main source of profit. But like honestly though they keep making so much repetative content they should just invest in new modes and features each patches, i mean there are some that doesn't require a new software or new game physics to add out there. They just haave to get off their lazy thinking and get creative like honestly solve a problem lol.
Also multi lingual voice actors may be a pain in the ass to schedule too so that may be a delay aswell lol

Fewer people have done raiding this expansion then ever before, it's another thread on these forums you can go look it up. My suspicion is their is a corellation between the slower grind for gear outside of the raid and this. I can't prove it but I suspect that because gearing up outside of the raid is such a pain and because LFR is so frustratingly dependent on RNG that people haven't got their appetites properly whetted for gear. If you don't do dailies the valor in those raids is also useless so the advantage to do them is basically just what drops off the boss. It's likely not one thing that's stopping people from raiding this time around but my suspicion is the slower grind outside of the raid isn't helping this at all. The lack of any PVE progression past 463 without dailies and without the raid is a big problem for a community that's been so used to doing just that for the past couple years. Essentially their enthusiasm for running the gear treadmill this time around is dulled because it's just so slow and it's just such a grind.
I play MoP, but I do play allot less than before. My time on the game has slowly been decreasing.
I loved BC and Wrath. I played almost everyday. When Cata came out I was highly unimpressed. Old content that was just revised didn't do it for me. Then when MoP was released I had high expectations, but they weren't meet for me. The constant faction grinding, the Asian theme, the CRZ....yeah I'm not too keen on any of those. If one day I find that I haven't logged on in over a month, I'll cancel the sub and will look for something else.
Then don't do them. There aren't any dailies that are required at all. This isn't like the past expansions when you needed rep to get the best head and shoulder enchants. Now factions offer so so gear and mounts, neither are needed. The only ppl that might feel like they have to do them are ppl chasing down rep based patterns.
Ppl getting pissed at dailies are the same as somebody yelling at a knife because they keep cutting themselves with it. Stop the madness and don't do the things you don't like to do, problem solved.

Still subbed and loving it. Way better expansion than the last two!
I unsubbed before the end of Cata. Had no intention to play MoP (after seeing how bad Cata was after T11), but was hoping that being in a new guild would convince me to play on. They were jerks, so sucks to be them
Rincewind: Ah! We may, in fact, have reached the root of the problem. However it's a silly problem and so I am suddenly going to stop talking to you.

Audacter calumniare semper aliquid haeret.
In other words the one option I had in the past that fit so well and the play style I enjoyed so much is gone for absolutely NO reason. If they removed the reputation requirement from the valor gear I could stay in dungeons and gear my guy up and not ever have to see a single daily. If I chose to that is. That is choice btw. The choice to never have to do something and never lose out on character progression for doing it. I don't do pet battles because they have nothing remotely progression oriented behind them and I never feel like I lost out. Just like dailies have historically been for more or less their entire existence.
My thing is, ICC was worse. That was what, 11 months (close to a year by a few days iirc) of the SAME content. Yet, no one brings that up anymore. It's like WOTLK was awesome, when they did the same crap. Instead of grinding dailies, you grinded heroics and 10/25 man raids for gear and for emblems. They already have the PTR's out for 5.1. The expansion has been out a little over a month and they already have the PTR servers up, that's the fastest they've ever done it. As for coming out with endgame content, we don't even have all of the raids out yet! What are you complaining for? Did you want every single raid out at launch? I'm pretty sure if they did that (like they did for Cata) people would be complaining that they're "overwhelmed" and "not sure how they are going to get through all the content in a timely manner." In fact, that's what happened in the first tier of content in Cata, they were going to push Firelands out faster and people moaned and complained that "they weren't done progressing yet, and they wanted more time to complete things." So guess what, Blizzard pushed it back, and then people bitch about it again for them "taking too long to release end game content."
You will never be happy with what they do. People will always complain about something, it's either the content is too slow or it's so fast to people they don't feel like they've accomplished anything. You can't have it both ways and one group is always going to be unhappy. You've solved your problem by unsubbing from a product that you don't like. You're done, it's over with, let it die in your mind.
Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.
