    I want to but to be honest I think I'll cave the first time we get big information. Plus I go to this website everyday to see news on stuff like 5.2.
    Excited

    Well, I can hardly abandon MMO-C and GenD for several months, so no.

    But I may well stay out of the beta for the next expansion. Which is not to say I didn't enjoy the MoP beta, I did. A lot. However, it was somewhat more difficult on launch to get excited about leveling for real.

    Pretty much the same for me. I could, but why would I want to?

    Considering the next expansion will not be named "Mists of Pandaria" or be about Pandaria/Pandaren, that's an easy, easy, day 1 buy. No need to even think about it.

    i cant, im a spoiler junkie, for example before going to a movie i read all possible reviews, watch all trailers, scenes uploaded on youtube, feedback from people, read the book and any other materials, THEN i go to see the movie : )))))

    Problem is that you'd be quite far behind the rest for a while.

    You can ignore the new designs and areas, but what less than knowing the numbers.

    I personally divulge all the information to myself that I can. It really doesn't bother me how much I know. I like to experience for myself. Granted information can sometime ruin a surprise or a puzzle. Doing it first hand makes it worth while.

    I managed to avoid all news related to ME3 for like 6 months should of just spoiled it for myself so i didn't waste my money.

    I think i could manage to avoid WoW expansion news quite easily.

    I couldn't resist the spoilers. It doesn't have to be an expansion but for example right now patch 5.2 is on the PTR and I want to know everything about it because at the moment there isn't that much to do in-game. Knowing what will come in the future determines what I will do today. With informations about 5.2 I will keep playing and improve my character and so on. If I wouldn't know there are things coming towards us that are exciting to me I probably would take a break until I'm so bored of other games that I will look what has happened to WoW out of curiosity.

    With an expansion it's even more important to me because most of the times I take a long break before a new expansion and when I know nothing about the new expansion there's no reason why I should buy and play it.

    In the past I did very often ignore all informations about upcoming games but since games are often bugged when they are released and I bought some games that were unplayable at start for several weeks to months I tend to absorb every bit of information about a game before considering of buying it.

    It's a lot more fun when you don't know a thing about a new game or changes from an expansion but it can be very disappointing when you get what you didn't expect.

    I did that with MoP. And I have to say, I'm gonna do it again with the next expansion. It really made the experience much more intriguing, immersive and fun.

    Also loved being totally behind with everything. It made playing so much more "virginal". It really makes a big difference. It's funny how people always whine about content getting old too fast, and WoW always just bringing more of the same, yadda yadda - yet they actually know everything before they can even get their hands on the game itself. It's no wonder it feels stale immediately.

    I don't think I could, for one every time a new expansion is announced theres always somone talking about it in trade, and I really dont want to avoid a city for 6 months or so. Also there were always people talking in my groups/raids about it.

    Plus I like to know whats going on.

    Probably not, requires too much effort to deny myself of things that will most likely change drastically or not make it in the game at all. Seems pointless.

    I wonder how it would be to play WoW and never once look at a forum... lol impossibru

    If the next expansion is burning legion there is no way in hell I could deny myself.

    probably. but i usually cave. at the very least ill end up looking at beta screenshots. i try as hard as i can to not look at anything more than that. cataclysm was actually the first time i really followed every scrap of information that came out.

  16. #76
    I can. But I don't imagine actively playing WoW around that time, so I would need to fish for information.

    I read the stories of the people that played PTR to death and were already jaded on release. By contrast the people that hid away from the hype saw it with fresh eyes and got to enjoy something fresh. Thats pretty rare these days. I know which group I want to fall into next expac.
    I was invited into Beta on the second wave of invites and spent 5 months playing daily, and I never got burn out.

    In fact, I still don't have burn out from MoP.

    You either like playing WoW, or ya don't.

    Not a chance. I love reading about content and such before it's out. It's a blast.

    Depends on how serious you play the game. If you want to play competitive, sure. If not, don't spoil yourself with too much -if any- information.

    In that regard I think its pretty rare to not spoil yourself with any information because even on global newssites they talk about WoW. Even on public chats they speak about WoW. In both cases including new expanions. I mean, did he know the name of the new expansion...? So it is pretty much a relative meaning whether you look into the new expansion or not before playing it. This fellow took it pretty much to an extreme.

    For me personally I would like to do this! The only exception is to hear how classes are being updated from a close friend, but no details of spells. More or less "Yeah, DKs will be good" levels of vague detailness!
    i did that ith mists. however it was just ingame stuff. trailers class balance? thats fine. screenshots of a couple places? eh id look at a couple.

    but i didnt do anything in beta except fool around with the character creation screen so i could figure out how i wanted my pandaren to look.

    i intend to do the same for the next expansion
