My eyes bleed because of dailies... I do nothing but those..
Yet I still play it :/
Blizzard - you sinister evil warlocks, you put a curse on this game or what? O_O
It obvious people are quitting now. There is no longer a 3 hour queue to get on illidan lol.
MoP is definately better than Cata in alot of ways, but the initial "shiny-ness" of it is definately starting to wear of for me. I like the new zones, pandas, raids and dungeons.
I haven't had time for pvp as I would like. And I'm gettting VERY bored of doing dailies, sitting at 600+ lesser coins...
What doesn't kill you, only makes you stranger
Seeing as we're barely a month in, people seem awfully quick to judge this as the 'best expansion'. Blizzard have 17 months left to hold off the pitchforks with dailies. And considering how cataclysm went so bad based on its final patch alone, we know the company is capable of a heavy jay-turn when it comes to their pandering quality.
If anything, I'm looking at other MMOs though. WoW is wow, and that is what I'm bored of. I think I'd like to try something different. Like SWtoR.
i think in most cases its the fact that the game is very old for a...game, so people who have been playing can easily find a reason to quit.
sure did for me; WotLK was a small step away from what I enjoyed about the game, Cata was a slightly larger step, then once I heard the next expansion would be about panda bears and pet battles, that was the final straw
22 miles of hard road
33 years of tough luck
44 skulls buried in the ground
Crawling down through the muck
Personally to me, it has made it a tad easier. The main thin that keeps me around is friends always trying to get me to come back and I usually do. I just need to tell them to piss off
You were a hardcore raider and didnt think levelling wasnt always simple and easy?... you didnt reach 90? srsly? and you were a hardcore raider... you levelled one char your entire life or something? cause i dont know a single semi-hardcore player without 2-3 max level toons. and you couldnt even reach 90 on a single toon.
MoP is far more addictive than any previous expansion, due to the huge amount of daily quests and other grinds and time sinks. This can make giving up easier or harder; it's certainly different, but whether it's easier or harder to quit will depend on the person. (Tobacco is more addictive than caffeine. But more people quit tobacco than caffeine; there just isn't much reason to quit caffeine.)

I quit WoW less than two weeks into MoP, so yes.
MoP is really about daily quests. There is always another daily quest to do. Always. The world is full of never-ending things to do. Raiders are upset because they try to use "time management" and "schedules" to raid a lot during certain hours, but to completely avoid WoW during other hours, and do different things. But addicts who just live on WoW 18 hours a day won't mind MoP at all, and neither will super-casual players.
I don't really know what kind of game you've been playing if you call this dumbed down and simple. It's been one of the toughest expansions with the most hardcore content available ever thus far. If it's that simple then go try either Challenge modes or heroic raids.
This is not directed solely towards the OP, I've heard this before and I just don't get why anyone would consider this expansion easy.
Tier 11 - 25man -13/13hc (world 220)
Tier 12 - 10/25man - 7/7hc (world 144)
Tier 13 - 10/25man - 8/8hc (world 91)
Tier 14 - 10man - 6/6hc - 4/6 hc - Quit raiding
I even endured Cata.
But come CRZ and not even one AOE.
From the #1 Cata review on Amazon.com: "Blizzard's greatest misstep was blaming players instead of admitting their mistakes.
They've convinced half of the population that the other half are unskilled whiners, causing a permanent rift in the community."
Here's the template:
I can't believe what blizzard has done, this expanion is a joke. <insert_last_expansion> was so much better, raids were hard and rewarding and pvp was more balanced, not as good as <insert_old_expansion_you_started_playing>, when everything felt epic. Now in <insert_current_expansion> everything is aimed for casuals, it's so dumb. I wish blizzard would make WoW as it once was, but I don't see it happening. <insert_current_expansion_feature> has ruined the game for me and I'm seriously thinking in canceling my sub.
I like wow even more.. I remember the last months of cata.. Since I had annual pass, I continued to play the game but it was so rarely and I mostly logged on to say hello to friends and so some bgs and maybe lfr.
Now I have something to do when I log on. I got the playstyle of doing whatever I want to do. If I dont feel the urge to do dailys, I dont. SOmetimes I just got to do something in the game even if I dont want to, but I try to keep it at a minimum..
Maybe thats why I have been playing wow since classic? Taking everything into moderation. Though I have been pretty obsessed with wow in periodes.
Right now im sitting at a sweet spot with wow. Always something fun to do online, and I can choose between several fun things. HC dungeons, scenarions, bgs, arena, raid(normal & lfr), dailys, questing in general(Like work on loremaster), work on proffs or whatever.
ANYWAY. Im very happy with wow and wont quit

Trying to classify everyone who currently dislikes the game as haters and throwing them into the same category only shows your ignorance to criticism, especially if your opinion differs from theirs.

well I havnt quit but ive got a lot more motivation to do so, im waiting to see how long before blizz change the stupid rep grind things, I dont want to play a game that feels like a sodding job. we`ll see if anything changes within a couple of patches time but yes, mop so far, the way blizz are approaching certain things? they could potentially ruin the game for a lot of people.
