    People actually claim 25+ is "old" ? W t h.

    OT : Move to other games or take a break if no other game is appealing at the moment? Why is that even a question? Does the OP actually think they would go into mass depressions and lose the will to live?

    Really old? At 25? I assume you are under 10 then to be saying that

    Maybe "chocolate Rift" raiding was like vanilla/TBC WoW, but the current SL Rift raiding scene looks like a mess.

    This is a ridiculous thread and seemingly born out of total boredom, mods please bury.

    So this was less constructive than the "jump off a cliff" or "be blinded by the sun" posts? I'd argue that wanking it is not only more constructive, but also a lot less harmful to yourself and other than inflicting blindness upon yourself or committing suicide.

    LOL then there is no hope for me, I'm 30 , suppose I better go collect my pension lol.

    As others have said, they would probably just move to another game.

    Me personally I'd be sad to see wow end, but such is life, I would more than likely also find a new game to enjoy, though probably not as much as WoW

    On topic i can imagine the more professional players would swap to a game like LoL or starcraft 2 etc to keep their streams profitable.
    Ya they prbly just play LoL or Dota. F2P games are becoming the thing now a days.

    Most of these guys play to be the best of something. If not wow, they'll find something else for sure. They would be pissed at first but they would get over it.
    HM SWTOR Raiding or Raiding in TERA , Hell even if GW2 got Raiding and added Trinity in them that would be a option too.

    I would agree there, its not a very good alternative, but it is the next best alternative at this time. But with Final Fantasy 14 ARR / Wildstar & Titan that could change soon. people could just wait for those games than pick it up again.

    a

    Recently I have read a few threads about how insanely dedicated top end players get in both raids and PvP. The level of dedication they display is immense. Heck, some of them make a living on youtube videos from WoW or being really elite PvP players. So it got me thinking, what would they do if it just all suddenly ended tomorrow? All their time and effort, gone. Not willingly I might add.
