Retcons appeared gradually, but hearing you say it you'd think they went between Dark Portal and Stargate SG1. They didn't. When I mention dialogue I refer to top notch dialogue across the board of all Blizzard's games, which used to be written by the same people. Ever since BC and later Blizzard games in-game dialogue/quest-based dialogue in WoW reflects poor quality writing, with some exceptions, mostly in WOTLK, and at the worst, see farts of crapdaria and Cacaclysm.
- I never claimed WoW came along and changed things irrevocably. I won't continue this argument based on the fact that it's troll bait and pure invention of your own deluded mind.
- Warcraft is a world of pain and fear. Everything always goes wrong all the time. Living on a PVP server allowed you to grow in that fear, and PVE server to a very minor extent. PVP was wonderful and awesome. Ask an old school PVP or PVE player some of her/his fondest moments of WoW group play they'll mention Xroads and city raids. Maybe not you cause you're one of those "eeek my quest giver died my perfect safe fantasy world is ruined". Sorry pal, that's WARcraft, and it's because Blizzard listened/listens to people like you that this game is progressively going to shit every expansion. Crossroads/SS wasn't about zerging towns NPCs, it was about drawing the opposing factions to fight you. But you wouldn't know shit about that you've probably never even experienced it and just read about it on WoWwikki. Hell, you even said it, you would go to Crossroads to kill NPCs instead of fighting players, what more proof do I need?
- People who tell me I'm "whining" or "bitching" or "complaining" or "qq'ing" or any other such lexical field related verb can join the deepest level of hell when they die and never reincarnate and that's pretty much my final feeling on that, since I hate you bastards with a passion, going around forums dismissing everything you see with a typical childish expression in the hopes of making yourself sound more important even though the only thing you're doing is calling them out for caring about something. Burn in hell you bastard, go raise your post count elsewhere, I've dealt enough with you venomous vipers on the WoW forums and if I had 3 genie's wishes one of them would be that you people are never allowed to share your bile in any form ever again.
