What happened to my aunt? She's almost 40 now and it's like she doesn't even play recreational sports anymore. Why is she dying?
Intelligent and interesting thread, I expect a highly constructive discussion.
Today ilvl is a good indicator for gear because Blizzard changed the way items get stats and you can easily say that an item with an higher itemlevel will be better than an item with a lower.
Also to the topic what happened with WoW.
Yes I can see that there are a lot of other hot topics on the frontpage but I think that's because people got more efficient. What hot topics did we have in the past? It was all about strategies about bosses, guides, theorycrafting and so on. With very good datamining and a lot more knowledge about the game and its mechanics people can start theorycrafting before a patch hits live and can tell you hours after the PTR goes live what will change and what will be the best gear for which class.
Every time when there's a hotfix or a new patch for the PTR there are a lot of new threads in the forum with a lot of people discussing things and like 6-12 hours later it's over and everyone goes back to normal.
“the old days of WotLK”.
its your interest in the game thats dying, probably because you have been playing for 8 years. its NORMAL, don't be afraid to let go!
10mil subscribers compared to any other MMORPG is certainly dying. Alert Blizzard to dissolve what few players they have left!
