    I don't play anymore and my sub is paid out for a few more months, actually well into 2013. I just don't like the game anymore. I would play again if they changed the reputation system from a daily thing to something else. So I keep an eye out here on mmo-c

    A advantage that not necessary to progress. Serious raiders will want a advantage, thus you must earn that advantage. Gemming/enchanting yields smaller rewards so the cost is smaller, usually farming materials or straight up buying them from other players or having guild-mates/alts that make them for you. Talents & specialization have a much bigger impact on your characters abilities than gear. Dps'ing as a Prot Warrior will have nowhere near as much performance as a Arms Warrior in Dps gear. The same could be said for a Arms Warrior trying to use tank gear to tank and being out-performed by a Prot Warrior with a lower itemlevel.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    "I never heard about anyone caring about mob drops, really. Got to be the dumbest reason to cancel." your english being as terrible as it is, my taking your opinion seriously would have to be among the dumbest things i could ever do.

    No matter how many threads the OP creates like this and no matter how many post in this thread, it has ZERO relevance to WoW player populations.

    99.9999% of active WoW players play instead of post on meaningless website discussions.

    The only ones left here stranded on a forum are the WoW bored ones.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Kung Fu Panda? April Fools joke race? Pokemon?

    That was my train of thought when they announced MoP. Instead now its...

    Why in the world would somebody who IS STILL PLAYING WOW, open a thread called "Cancelled subscription?"?

    Also, if you are one of the people saying "If there's enough votes than it's representative of the population - it's how statistics work!", please don't ever cite your knowlefge of statistics again. (yes it's true that a RANDOM SAMPLE will produce a range of results that are indicative of the actual population. What you have here is not random, and is an extremely poor sample)

    Why is it that when someone unsubs they feel the need to announce it to the world?

    Shut up and stop polluting the forums with your whiny garbage.

    Move on. Play something else. Leave those of us who enjoy the game alone.

    If somebody hasn't said it yet, we won't get new updates on Subscription numbers until the next Activision conference call in early February.

    MoP's subs rose to 10 mil, but they were sneaky (as predicted) and released the expansion 1 week before the quarter ended.

    I just read OP's post history.

    Your boredom is obvious. Go find something productive to do - like play WoW!

    Depends on how they announce it.

    For me, when I quit, it was a detailed review giving exaclty what I liked and didn't like and what I thought needed improving. I gave mine as a means of providing feedback, hoping that (if enough people said the same thing) that one day that Blizz would change their game around to bring me back. And it did for me... I hated Cataclysm with a passion... and came back in 4.3 when they started changing/fixing MANY aspects I hated about Cata (search my forum history for reasons... don't want to derail this thread). And as much as I love the gameplay details of Pandaria, I had to quit as CRZ changed a fundamental aspect of my game that I love (No, I don't play on PVP servers... those that do play on PVP servers deserve what they got. :P)

    For others... as pointed out above in other responses - it's just a moment of rage/pendulum swinging to make one feel self-empowered. :P

    This is a complete joke. "Serious" raiders are complaining that they have to do 20 minutes of questing a day to remain competitive?

    I'm sorry, but "serious" raiders re-level entire professions and use holiday buffs, just to gain a tiny edge. They have stables of alts just for practicing encounters.

    Reading whining over dailies seriously makes my jaw drop. What game do you people think you're playing? Guess what, I despise leveling professions, yet I do it on all my characters, as do you.

    Daily quests and reputation are a part of PvE progression, just like they have always been. They've been made slightly more meaningful, but they have always been a way to get a gear advantage.

    Wrath babies crying for rep tabards are itching to turn this game back into the "sit in trade waiting for LFD queue" glorified chatroom it had become. No thanks.

    Please elaborate. I don't understand how CRZ has changed anything except made leveling zones feel like they did back in BC, instead of vast, empty single player levels.

    That's a matter of opinion (in fact, you're the FIRST person I heard saying "it brought it back to BC levels"...it doesn't feel like anything like BC at all to me) to me, they feel less fun and less alive (perpetually filled with lots of random greedy players that are not part of any server community =/= "alive" in my book. It's like launch day, every single day... with no community or cooperation.)

    I don't need to elaborate as this topic has been done to death on several several SEVERAL threads over the past 3 months. If you haven't opened your ears to those comments by now, then you probably won't listen to a word I say in response - will you? :P

    And, as I said with Cata, I do not wish to derail this thread into yet ANOTHER Anti/pro CRZ thread. If you want my opinion, go read my posts made in other CRZ topical threads.

    You're kind of mean and hostile to anyone who so much even suggests that they are no longer playing WoW or dislike WoW. Sounds like you have more of a problem than the poeple you're making assumptions about.

    That's the thing for me, WoW used to have the perfect mix of dark gameplay with cartoonish graphics but epic country sides. I didn't have a problem with pandas being the new race but when they announced pet battles I was pretty disappointed because the game should specialize in what they are good at, epic content. If I wanted to battle pets I'd play pokemon because thats what they specialize in. So much time was spent on pet battles that, I believe, it took away from the game.

    I feel really sorry for you if you really believe that, especially in the world we live in.
