Just saw this....really makes you think doesnt it?

doesn't make me think anything other than someone got a group of people together for a screen shot, then one person decided to take a picture of him self.
Yeah, the graphics really have improved since way back when. Who'da thunk?
Makes me think, I always had duels outside IF back then, and often we could chase hords trying to go info IF, but not to often (Back then my server kor'gall was high pop, with great pvp)
One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
I reckon the first is a screenshot the paladin took of himself and his friends / guild.
Now he's the only one left playing.
I can semi-relate to that, most of my friends eventually stopped logging on sometime during WotLK.
That the graphics are still the same, Except for the gear! Small improvement though :P
Oh no, you must mean it makes you think WoW is dead. Right. You're right, of course. WoW is dead, and we're all having fun playing LotRO, DDO, Aion, RIFT, WAR, AoC, SW:TOR, or any of the other since come since gone failed-to-grow MMO's, and we're not here, on a WoW site, discussing WoW on WoW forums.
It makes me think that 8 years have passed since i started playing WoW. But nice try OP .. we all understand your subtle intentions.
I guess u still maintain contact with every people u knew up until now on your real life if not then by your definition real life is dieing ..
I have a tip for u ... make new friends. Thas the circle of life. The real good friends are very rare and even among those only a few stay on your life for some years.
If anything it also makes me think u have problems making friends and knowing new people.

Although i havent played it, there is I believe enough info to form a valid opinion.
To give my opinion on the new WOW xpac..... Ive played enough wow to know MOP is a complete disaster..... I visualized playing it in my head and it was bad.
Everything else are online buddies or aquaintences. Of which hundreds have passed me by in recent years.
That in both screenshots there are no dwarfs...despite you being outside ironforge? >.<
giggle about the fact that Pally and Warrior PvP Alliance Set are the same except some colours.
Horde PvP Sets are way better.
Too often, we are mistaken for druidic types. perhaps that's true for some shaman, but do not let yourself be plagued by the ignorant belief that we are always peaceful.
Nothing about what I do is harmonious. I command the elements to my will. There is nothing offered in return. I would have it no other way.
Never assume an ogre's stupid, that's when they'll get you.
There are many levels of acquaintances. Some of them may seem like friends, if you for some reason lack true friends. Online acquaintances are just that. They may very well graduate to the level of friend, but mostly they're just a passing social contact you have.
Not everyone has true friends, friends who you've known for years, even decades. Friends you'd do quite a bit for. Friends aren't there just for you to have fun with. They're not something to kill time with, and they're most definitely not something to make your own life better with. Friends are people who come into your life and just refuse to give up on you regardless of all the fights you have with them.
Whereas family gains their status without really deserving it - and in the case of family you can decide not to have anything to do with them as they do not deserve any status in your life "just because", friends are given their status by you. If you think someone is deserving of your forgiveness and patience, then they may very well be a true friend. However, true friends may just deserve much more.
Sure, if you spend eight years in a computer game chatting with the same people every day, they "feel" like friends. Even if you've met them RL once or twice. That just isn't the case often.
Point being, losing a guild may feel like a huge thing, especially if you have no contacts outside your computer, but unlike losing a true friend, you'll get over it eventually, and sooner or later they're just a fond memory.
I've left behind me a couple different social groups whom I was acquainted with for half a decade to a decade, but after a while, they just disappear into the alcohol-preserved mushed up memories in my head. My true friends, the ones I've had my ups and downs with for a good two decades now, they for some unexplained reason still want me to come spend time with them every once in a while.
Obviously, if you were very young when WoW started (10-15 years old), you've grown up with WoW, and eight years for you is a lifetime, and thus social contacts created in that time feel so much more special. For someone a bit older, like me, eight years feels like one day. I was 26 in 2005, I'm 33 now. I haven't changed at all, the last eight years are a blur, and it feels like no time has passed. I already had my friends eight years ago, and I wasn't looking for more.
That's what that picture made me think.
Teamwork and reputation was something to hold dear back in World of Warcraft. If you wanted to aim high, you needed friends, and teamwork with others to succeed. If you had a reputation of being nice, helpful, skilled or being friendly, you could go far, because people wanted to play with you.
The reputation of being nice was needed due to not being able to cross-server anywhere. There was no cross-server grouping.
There's not much of that left in Mists of Pandaria, neither it was in Cataclysm or Wrath of the Lich King. There's a small amount of teamwork left only for heroic raiding.
I get it, all his old "friends" stopped playing so he took the pic alone, but this is the internet, make new "friends", most of the people from my vanilla days stopped playing too, but my friends list is as big as it ever was, it is what it is.
