    Lol, I'm more productive in a day then you'll be your entire life. Why do you stalk peoples profiles, really weird. Like I've said before, answer the post or leave hypocrite.

    I quit around mid cata because of the catering to the casuals and the game becoming so easy, but was planning on coming back for MoP to play with 1 of my friends who says it is decent.

    If I can read enough good things about MoP I will probably reactivate for winter break this weekend.

    Move on. Play something else. Leave those of us who enjoy the game alone.
    Why do you feel the need to post on here if it's garbage? Normal people would just pass it by if they didn't think it was interesting, you don't have to click it unless but I know you're angry at life. Piss off.

    I had canceled previously but now with 5.1 I am back to see if it suits my playstyle.
    If not, then I'm gone again... wait for more changes to come.

    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)
    Nice misquote, I understand you have to forge peoples thoughts to come up with a counter argument because your incapable of thought - pathetic.

    uh? Don't know what to say to that other than do try not to put your strange obsessions onto other people, contrary to what you may think a lot of us here are normal people who prefer not to stalk people like a psychopath. Don't read Catcher in the Rye!

    Respectfully, insulting people that disagree with you isn't the way to get them to change their mind, in fact, its more likely to get them to dig into their position.

    and hyperbole like 'I'm more productive in a day then you'll be in your entire life' is flat out an over-inflated, easily exposed, lie.

    The best way to get folks to at least give you a fair hearing of your multiple polls and threads is to be honest, and you seem to have a problem with that idea.

Even after hitting 90, I pushed more towards finishing Pandaria Loremaster, rather than at the end-game content.

    10 million does seem like a high total, but their snapshot was following the release of an expansion, which traditionally is higher than all other snapshots. I know 900k seems low when you look at it from an end-game raider / arena junkie perspective, but it seems pretty accurate given that the majority of players are actually very casual and don't really care about "I must hit max level ASAP!", playing at their leisure instead. If you spend more time around the people that are "noobs" you'll realize that there is a whole group of people that have a completely different approach to the game. Also, there are a lot of players that keep active subscriptions that just don't play. Those count too, because Blizzard is still collecting their $14.99 a month.

    -------------
    If by worse, you mean dumber and dumber with the same idiotic redundancy, then yes they are. Its actually pretty sad. In the beginning of Wrath and most of BC, the only trolls I really saw were people picking on those that couldn't or didn't do what they claimed and would shut them down -or- people that were trying to flex their "epeen" by bragging about something others hadn't or couldn't do, which people mostly ignored. Occasionally, you'd have that person that just messed with people that acted dumb or talked about how their guild was better than the other guilds (in the case of #1 vs. #2 guild kills), but the troll was often witty and could actually respond with smart remarks that made sense.

    It seems around ToGC and ICC, "trolls" started to change. Instead of the witty person with smart remarks, it became others trying to make a name for themselves by acting like complete jerks and wanting to fight ... no matter how stupid the reason was. Some of them were just plain retarded. Others loved to make racist, discriminatory, or hate-speech comments in an effort to fluster a few people, which only led to their own suspensions / bans due to EULA and TOU violations -or- people disassociating from them, forcing them to transfer, name-change, or main swap. Sure, a cleaver play on words like "Invincible" and "Invisible" is slightly witty and getting people to answer "6 - 6 x 6 =" incorrectly proves someone forgot or never knew Order of Operation, but considering that part of the player-base that frequently talks in trade either has no grammar, can't spell, has low reading comprehension, or terrible math skills, it should be expected that you'd get a few of them to screw up.

    The real problem is that the newer trolls are just plain jerks or actually ignorant people trying to feel less insignificant and stupid. Their jokes are no longer witty, but blatantly incorrect, which they have to try to argue to get continued responses. By the time they've said something for the third or fourth time, almost everyone reading trade has realized that ... yes, they really are that stupid -or- sigh, this "troll" enjoys looking dumb. Some intentionally try to bring up one of the "two things one should never discuss in public – religion and politics." We all know where that is going ... /facepalm. The worst part is, half of them have to TELL you that they're trolls because they're so HORRIBLE at it.

    Of course the occasional idiot in Halfhill stating "Sylvian Warparty is up" or "Gallon spawned" is both ignorant and counter-productive to the troll's actual desires (if Salyis' Warband / Galleon were actually up, they'd want into the raid). Instead, when Galleon actually spawns, the group gets filled by the select crowd that knows how to intelligently speak with each other and PUGs are often left scrambling and upset that they couldn't organize a raid because no one believed them until its too late (and the original group won't tag-share with QQing morons).

    In short, yes, trolls are getting worse at being trolls ... and better at being ignorant and self-destructive. I would encourage people to handle them like this: Right Click > report for (whatever they did) -or- just /ignore them. If you have the Prat addon and don't often put in main names, set their main name to something like "Idiot" for a quick reminder.
    Funny people talk about redundancy of a thread yet feel the need to post on it. You can't be witty when morons like yourself make stupid posts, wit needs wit to counter. If you don't like a thread don't post on it. Given the circumstances when your post is that long you just sound like a retard yourself.

    You quit the game.
    You feel like there is nothing left in your life.
    Get the fuck over it.
    Speak for yourself, you're still playing wow enough to get angry. Posting on a forum takes a second.

    Mod Edit: Please don't insult people.

    wit needs wit to counter
    Since when?

    Though, really, why are you just insulting people instead of discussing the poll data, especially when you've already conducted a poll thus have something to compare against?

    it's a read between the lines statement. There's no point in being witty with someone whose being dumb.

    Still loving it. The raids are really cool this tier.

    The dailies are annoying, but lots complained about never going out in the world, I guess this is Blizz's way of making that happen.

    While the game will never have that fresh feel again where you want to play lots and lots, there is more to do in game than ever. Even the pet battles are a cool idea, once you get over the fact it copied pokemon.

    Terrible game is terrible, sub cancelled few weeks ago. If there are no major changes within few months then I'll just 'move on'. Why force yourself to play a game you absolutely hate nowadays.

    Before MoP's release my intention was to play for a month or two, get some stuff done and then quit. I'm still doing stuff.

    the only official number is 10 million, it may be less it may be more we won't know until the next time they give us the new number. i love dailies, call me a sheep or a fan boy or the gazillion other insults you can come up with but raiding, dailies, pet battles and brawlers guild is what makes the game worth it to me. And of course the guild i happen to be a member of.

    i have nothing against people who dislike wow or have quit. there are a small number of people who when they talk negatively about the game they do so constructively and with actual valid concerns which is when real debates can arise.

    however the vast majority of people who make these threads and post in them piggy back, dont make valid arguments, hate for the sake of hating, and act irrational. many of them completely falsify things and when people prove them wrong they refuse to listen to logic.

    sadly most of the people who do make valid arguments get drowned out by the other people. people who are like a plague not only on the wow community but all gaming communities and they give gamers a bad name and most people would agree that not only wow but the vast majority of games would be better and more enjoyable without them.
