Be that gear, achivements, mounts or whatever. And at some point ppl will not quit just because they have spent so much time on it anyway.
    Speak for yourself. What the hell does "best gameplay" mean? I think people are playing MMOs because they like it. You're trying to prove how people are playing MMOs because it makes them addicted, which is simply ridiculous. Again, it may be true for yourself. You're trying to make it look like it's the case with everybody who plays WoW.

    What's wrong about providing long-term motivation? I thought that was one of the positive aspect of a good game. MMOs are naturally long-term-orientated. They're good at that. What's supposed to be wrong about that? Of course I like collecting gear, mounts etc. It's fun. I like the continuity of it. I don't do it because I have some retarded feeling that I have to. And I wouldn't do it if the actual gameplay in WoW wasn't that much of a blast as it is.

    You're not only labelling developers as ruthless manipulators, but also players as mindless sheep devoid of reason. You would do good to reconsider your overall paranoid mindset.

    The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

    MMOs survive on getting their players to do the same thing over and over again and WOW is an absolute master at it. In a single player game would you repeat the same action day after day in order to attain a single item?

    He means the guy that made the claim that 5.1 included stuff that didn't make it in 5.0.5. That would be me. I based my question on the Upgrade system being delayed to 5.1, icons for Archeology being delayed, Hunter aspect changes being delayed, Sporebats using "Mind quickening" aura, etc.

    I never claimed Landfall was supposed to launch at 5.0.5, but a shit ton of other stuff should have. It didn't because Blizzard were pushing the game out to hit GW2.

    So what you're really saying is that they launched their game too early.

    Agreed. I don't raid for purples. Sure, I'm happy to get better stuff and advance, but it's the raiding itself, that feeling when Bosses finally fall that is fun. Playing with nice people is fun.

    You do know that there are single player RPGs that involve quite the amount of grind? Then there are games like DIII, which essentially are single player too.

    This thread means nothing... Do people even read the quest text? Even in jade forest they say the fleets (5.1) are going to be there in 2months.

    lol sorry I don't want to be a douche but it's funny how Americans always need to use <sarcasm> or /end of sarcasm tags to show other Americans that they're being sarcastic lol

    look if someone doesn't get that you're being sarcastic then they're dumb and not worth replying to

    Duster you seem to be...somewhat like a girl friend who keeps going back to their guy that they still like and have some sort of addiction or need to bash WoW or what not. Just move on from Wow. Either way this quote isn't a big deal.

    Whatever, Haters will hate.

    5.1 was planned to always been 2 months out and they released it at the perfect time and they worked on 5.2 at the same time.

    The person who made that comment is obviously unaware of what 5.1 actually was and if they actually played through the Main Jade Forest Questline, they would understand the whole reasoning of 5.1.

    GC answered that question perfectly.

    And?

    I'm sorry but what exactly is the issue here?

    are Archaeology Icons and a minor buff to hunters being pushed back considered an attempt to sabotage GW2's launch? ARCHAEOLOGY ICONS!!!!

    even if that was blizzards plan ( which i HIGHLY doubt, cuz that's moronic ), there's nothing wrong with it.
    Gamers are too obsessed with the death of games. Imagine if all that energy was channeled into the LIFE of games.

    Q: I'm coming back to WoW after a 6 year break. What's changed?
    A: They found Mankrik's wife.
    I had a good giggle when I saw the second one. I also had a giggle when I read the first one too, but it was the question that caused it and not so much the answer. Damn, I wish I knew where some people get the mush that spews forth from their mouths.

    Yeah, and Ghostcrawler & the other Devs make up the Head Council of the Illuminati who are using WoW as a brainwashing tool in order to stealthily recruit millions to their new world order on the day they reveal themselve.

    I've heard it all before buddy.
