    I love WoW - but I hate playing it.

    It's getting at me, because I really love WoW and everything to do with Warcraft. I constantly read forums, speculate about future lore and content, and create my own fan art / fiction.

    Still, whenever I play the game for more than a week or so, I get sick of it and cancel my subscription.

    Does anyone feel the same? Is Warcraft more of a wonderful universe to stay in touch with for you, than it is an actual game? If you've found a way to manage this, what are your tips?

    Well... i really love wow and i like playing it, but i don't know why i get tired of it fast (maybe because my computer is to shitty and don't let me do most of the things), and once i wanted to play GW2 but then i was like: "GW2 looks so cool but.... i like the warcraft universe way too much to just leave it... D:"

    I once said that playing WoW is like eating ice cream with a hot fork.

    Seems you feel the same way, oddly enough though - I no longer feel that way since I stopped the 'must do everything today' mentality.

    I love wow but I started hating playing it after cata, so I just play on classic/TBC/wotlk servers.

    I confess that I still like one aspect of the gameplay - leveling new characters with friends. That's almost like going back in time, and it rocks.

    Interesting views though, guys.

    Ever come across the feeling where you get nostalgic about doing X in WoW and immediately feel like you have to start again?

    Same here.

    I consider myself a lore buff. I enjoy listening to podcast and reading up about the happenings of Azeroth. But at this point in time in my life I need to deticate my time to other things besides gaming for 15+ hours a week.

    It is a good thing that there is a lot of the story you can get outside the game. And you can meter that too.

    I understand the sentiment. I can't say I'm really as passionate about WoW's gameplay as I used to be (though I still like playing it), but I certainly love the universe as much as always.

    Yeah i think that way now and it makes it more fun to play and not just sometime i do all days..., but right now i stopped playing until my next vacation where i plan to start playing again with a friend..., and we all know that everything is way better when you're doing it with a friend

    So, in short: the internet.

    I have played WoW for so long, and I know everything worth knowing about the game, so it doesn’t surprise me or affect me anymore. Which is why I can’t enjoy it. I still like the universe though.

    I go through moments of loving and hating it. Generally I love it when I get a new upgrade, and hate it when I have to do all the unenjoyable parts again till I can get my next upgrade.

    I still love playing every now and then. I just don't do it as much as I used to.
    I also play through WC3 + TFT for good measure from time to time.

    I still love it.

    I still play it.

    I still plan to work for the company who built a game whose story completely immerses me.

    Simple as that.

    Quite the opposite for me - I still enjoy the gameplay quite a lot but the universe itself is attracting me less and less. I miss the days of wc3 and TFT ;_;

    That's the 3rd option mate. O.o

    I haven't leveled an alt in awhile but i know for sure the gameplay at high end is pretty lackluster in the PvP department. I think they forgot about PvP actually. And the story... lol. I came from the Warcraft 3 era, where the story was interesting, so as WoW progresses its even more of a let down. I'm thinking they dumped all their money into raids and said forget the rest. Might as well skip the world and just have a q for raid before you enter the world. Kinda like joining a game of League of Legends or something. They are most def milking it for all its worth, and the problem is that the game is so much more smooth than any new game, you can easily say "well the content is about the same but WoW is much more polished at this point in time". Hopefully they step up their game in the world and World PvP categories and I would love to see the removal of Pvp gear so the players would be brought back together. Surely there's a way to make that happen, and does it really matter where you get the gear? especially if you are bringing the player, not the class or gear.
