    Wow, people're still playing during the pause?

    I stopped playing way after the Garrosh raid was old, and I noticed now that wow players are STILL into that raid. WTH. Seriously, this should be way into the WoD expansion already, I guess it's like that long wait during the end of Cata when it felt every server was emptying, and every small server was dying, I bet it's like that now or it's masked by the shadow realm-linking effect.

    You assume raiding is all there is in WoW? How limited...

    No idea what you're talking about. Every one of the realms I play on says 'High' during the afternoon. The main cities are packed, even Ironforge on Wyrmrest is busy. People still play and raid.

    Can we please stop with all this

    bullshit?

    If people enjoy doing something, let them. If they don't let them not do it. Getting so tired of this id***ity

    The difference between Cata -> MoP and MoP -> WoD is there are still plenty to do. SoO is more enjoyable than DS and not to mention the FoS for defeating him before 6.0.

    There's also many different things to do from past stuff to current stuff like Timeless Isle, Pet Battles, new PvP gear, etc.

    I've cleared SoO on both normal and heroic a lot of times now, and I will keep clearing it until I get bored and/or find something I find more enjoyable - currently I'm enjoying the shit out of what I'm doing.

    Not only that but as all midcores, he want to be sure that everyone have to know that thinking otherwise is shameful.

    I still find SoO enjoyable. It's the same reason why I've been watching Friends for 10 years, it's enjoyable...

    Your highly personal outlook on how things are vs reality for everyone else do not compute. Not everyone puts all their eggs into one basket when it comes to games, and shocker! Not everyone grows bored and moans like a spoiled little brat just because they've repeated the same content more than once. If people play, they probably have a reason to. If they play without wanting to do so, then they're just "special".

    I still enjoy every raid night with my guild in SoO + everything else in-game that I currently work on/plan to finish before WoD. How the hell can it be something negative for players to keep having fun even during the stagnation of new content that happens between expansions? I'd say it's a darn good thing. WoD will come when it comes, and until then I won't waste energy (unlike some) on being bitter and whinging for more content since I have plenty fun in-game, even if not fun with NEW stuff.

    Farewell Pandaria, it's been a wonderful few years despite the whingers claiming you were too childish for a game known to be whimsical and fun!

    The raid doesn't get old very fast if you play with people you like. You know, the social aspect of the raid.

    And there are more to wow than raids, of course.

    Is OP aware that 90% of all players have not yet killed Garrosh on Normal?
    There is no such thing as "ability bloat" just l2fp.

    I am on a raiding vacation.
    Going to wrap up the last pets of the Tourney and upgrading to 4/4.
    After that I'll probably put my sub on Ice, unless I miss my Draenei too much.

    Ironforge is a cross-realm zone. My servers aren't too terribly dead yet, either, though, there are still many months until Warlords of December comes out.

    I quit about a month after SoO release, been playing old psp games on vita (tactics ogre/fate extra/ff:tactics). I don't think I'll come back to WoW, I started playing ToR again and it's improved quite a bit PvP is actually fun in that game. I can't understand why anyone would still stay subbed after so much time has passed without any significant patch.

    And when it does, activity will skyrocket again.

    Never been sure why people see declining activity on servers as some sort of green light for them to take stabs at the game (not you, in general) and those of us that do keep playing. It's natural, people that have nothing to do in-game cancel until there's new content, and then they burn through that new content until they take another vacay from the game. Others, like me, partake in so much of the content that we find it difficult to run out of stuff to do...T.T

    You don't have to understand it, but that doesn't mean there's not a good reason behind. Just that you're not trying to understand it, for example, do you find this difficult to understand:

    I'm still having fun.

    Well?

    It's the same reason I still listen to music I enjoyed when I was 10, I still enjoy that music. This whole jumping back and forth, falling out of love with stuff and then making sure to announce to the world that I have fallen out of love with it is what I have a hard time understanding...but maybe it's fun to those that do it?

    Farewell Pandaria, it's been a wonderful few years despite the whingers claiming you were too childish for a game known to be whimsical and fun!
