still better than pandaria intro
A fine summarization of the communityYou're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...
War is deception, a game played best from the shadows!
oh god that MOP Intro was Insanely slow lol , I remember staying up all night playing it.. got through eventually..
Cata i went to the underwater zone and it was almost abandoned. Half way threw the quests i could swear i was the only one in that area.

Yeah the servers at the start of MoP were so bad we just did dungeons the first night 'cause they're on different servers. I couldn't even get off the boat it was so bad.
Romire: I remember that UI! I used to use that for Darsithis when he was still a blood tank in Ulduar/ICC (I was blood tank before it was cool)
Yeah, I had already played through Vashj'ir in beta, and knew it would be underpopulated, so I left Hyjal out. Didn't play on release night for MoP, but I heard it was quite laggy in Jade Forest.

Oh man, Hyjal was a clusterfuck. I didn't know that there was a command for interacting with NPCs so I accidentally attacked enemy players only to get smashed by the neutral guards over and over.
I remember that UI, too! I thought it was really cool at the time, but in the end it just took up so much space, just made my own instead. Nevertheless, the design of it is quite neat.
Didn't experience any lag/clusterfuck whatsoever in Jade Forest, tbh. Although, I did login 30min past launch, but that shouldn't have had THAT much of an impact. There were quite a few people, but nothing close to what Hyjal was.
Hyjal? Vashj'ir was way worse.
Enjoy 50 people being on the boat, and the tentacles bugging out so that you just get thrown endlessly sideways until you die from fatgiue, or so much zone lag that you drown before the Draenei shaman can cast the bubble on you to save you.
And don't even get me started on having to loot that god damned shell for the sea legs quest.
Well Hyjal was really cramped, but I remember I somehow managed to get ahead of the questing crowd for the most part. I think it was because I was a boomkin I would tag things from far away and kill them and sometimes kill a big group to make it go by faster. I finally laid down to take a nap and when I woke up from my nap everyone was finally where I was which was Deepholm or Uldum. Don't remember honestly now.
I was Alliance on the start MOP of it, and I was one of the first on the copter thank god! Once I got off the copter and out of jade forest, I was actually pretty lonely all day until I hit 90. I would only see a few people here and there. I assume most of everyone was stuck back on the copter. LOL.
However Wrath was by far my worst experience on launch. I tried to quest with my 70 hunter on the Horde and I couldn't ever get anything tagged for myself for the quests, so I tried my Alliance boomkin and couldn't do anything either. So I made a DK and for the most part had a blast. It was still super cramped but not like Northrend was. I remember being an unholy DK with unholy blight, it was awesome back then <3 They were so OP it was nothing to pull thousands of mobs and not die. Hahaha, I also remember a time when blood DK's were DPS too before they were THE tank spec.
I didn't set foot in Hyjal until my 10th alt, probably 3/4 of the way through the expansion lol. Would do Vash'jir, run instances, and eventually hit twilight highlands to finish up. Though by about the 5th or so alt, I just ran instances for the most part. The later ones I decided to test out other zones. Vash is still one of my all-time favorite zones in the game, such epic questing, and doing so underwater was awesome!
I hit Vash day one, and didn't have much of an issue. I know that there were a LOT of people out trying to kill the freaking whale instead of leveling that first day lol. I got to the outer zones of Vash by day two, and there weren't but a handful of people out there total. No contenders for anything.
