    There's no reason to insult a majority of the playerbase by calling them "Spastic". Also, I play because I want to, and not because I feel I'm forced to - so no, not "Milked" in any way. I play the parts of the game I enjoy, and ignore those I don't. Simple.
    I definitely don't feel forced. I haven't maxed valor on a single toon in over a month (though I do usually hit 300 - 500), I sometimes cap conquest on my PvP's, and I level alts and do LFR...sometimes, if I feel like it.

    Exactly my point. People are crying that there's so much content they are "forced" to do. That's utter rubbish - there's tons TO do, if you want to do it, I think people have just lost sight of the fact it's a game, and should be played for fun. It worries me.

    theres tanking mechanics in vaults thats difficult for a pug? :S

    stoneguards - taunt off each other, morchok - taunt off each other (well until it was stupidly nerfed and outgeared)
    feng - taunt off each other and use a crystal, zon'ozz - tank and spank
    gara'jal - taunt off each other and kill an add in spirt realm, yor'sahj - taunt off each other
    spirit kings - tank and spank, move from crap like the rest of the raid, hagara - tank and spank move from crap like the rest of the raid
    elegon - tank and spank while moving off the platform like everyone else, ultraxion - taunt off each other watch debuffs and push a button
    will - tank adds do the easy as hell dance, blackhorn - tank adds, tank boss occasional taunting off each other
    spine - tank either bloods or amalg
    madness - tank corruption and taunts off each other.

    so please explain what these pug killing tanking mechanics are thats killing your pugs given the above comparison to dragonsoul

    I've been hearing this same argument over and over again, it's been said many times why players on even semi-competitive raid teams are expected to max out their valor each week along with doing a myriad of other things that keep your character's performance competitive. Just because YOU do not understand why that may be doesn't mean people aren't feeling that pressure.

    You have LFR for that, there is your pug.
    I'm very happy about the upped difficulty of the normal modes, they are perfect for my guild.
    Also there is more to do than ever before.. great!
    I don't feel milked at all... the dwarf-quest doesn't count. <_<

    I'm not entirely sure what your actual stance is, your grammar isn't the best I've seen.

    In relation to the thread title though, no I do not feel "milked". I have more to do than ever before at the same cost of subscription.

    Someone can always spin having more options and more things to do in an MMO into being "milked".

    Explain the difference between content that is milking you and content you can't finish too fast.

    The whole ''I feel forced into X'' is actually getting on my nerves. I remember when REAL gamers enjoyed the sense of acomplishment when they finally got through something, Blizzard learned that from Cata there was no sense of acomplishment, outside of Raiding, like at all. People like the OP, are the kind of people that I really wish would not play MMOs, from what im reading, he doesnt know what an acomplishment is, he just wants to be handed everything because he has GOD knows how many characters.

    I dont recall who said this, but im fucking 100% in agreement with this and is sad that the WoW community and the MMO community in gerneral is driveing away from this. ''Remember, while convenience is nice, accomplishments are rewarding. Accomplishments with too much convenience may not feel rewarding.

    (Also, is this guy actually complaining that Tanks have to follow mechanics in LFR? God forbid they make you use your brain once in a while.)

    Who here feels MoP introduced new ways too to milk the player base. It's alt unfriendly, it killed trade chat PUGS - which 80% of the population loved doing (number I pulled out of my ass), now they force you to join a guild to raid. What if you hate guilds and anal retentive people? You could always pug. Well they introduced new tanking mechanics in vaults to kill pugs. You need tanks with some brains, which this game doesn't have. DS(deathwing raid) was boring, but everyone pugged, it was great design. I feel they killed pugs to keep medium to good players in LFR to keep the (spastic Casuals)happy and subbed.
    Here, made it readable for those who had troubles reading it before.
    And no, I don't feel like it. I am having fun on my alts, and I do not feel it is better or worse than any other previous expansions in that matter. Also, what is stopping you on making a trade chat pug? So far I haven't really noticed a GM preventing me from doing that. But why can't you find one? Maybe it's because other people prefer the way it is done now? Queue for LFR and get in, while doing something else, instead of being stuck in a city to watch the trade chat until something suitable comes up.

    And thank you for calling me a spastic, as a casual I highly appreciate being insulted, it just warms the cockles of my heart.

    Why do people keep claiming that MoP is alt unfriendly? Hell I have more raid capable max level alts now than I did through any of the other expansions combined.

    If you feel milked, then don't let them milk you. It's a very simple solution.

    If you had 10 alts in normal and heroic DS gear, you are far from casual. And use some periods. Damn.

    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

    I won't even attempt to parse out the original post but to comment on whether or not I feel like I'm paying too much for what I'm getting the answer there is a clear no.

    In addition to that I should point out that the subscription rate has never been raised in eight years which means that the game has never been less expensive than now in terms of real dollars/whatever.

    As for pugs? Yes, there are fewer and that's largely because of LFR and because it's early yet in the expansion. While I used to enjoy doing a pug now and again, the whole business of getting it organized and pug leaders who didn't want to take anyone who wasn't already over-geared along with people faking achievements, etc. isn't something I miss very much. I'm hoping that as we progress into the next tier and gear improves some the pugging scene will return a bit for normal mode raiding.

    Early expansion is never a good time to be pugging in any case.

    You've already made threads and posts about this. It seem like you already quit. How can you possibly feel milked if you don't play the game?
    You fucking what mate?

    Just another person who probably didn't quit, but can't stand not getting his way, and unsubbing isn't an option. So he's probably made countless threads on the official forums about the same thing.
