Shutting down all their servers. Every single one. If they shut down every WoW server in existence, I'll stop playing.
A year of SoO.
P.S. currently unsubbed until WoD
nothing but empty space here bro. move along now.
No new content available - done everything I wanted / was aiming for. Oh wait that's what's happening right now !!
Aaaaand that's also why I'm not subscribed any more, will be when WoD comes though...since you know : new content
As for something that would make me think "damn I'll never play this game ever again" I really have no idea, I'm pretty open minded as long as things keep me entertaining. The biggest deal breaker would just be me losing interest.
Removing lfr. I raided for 8 years and I have no interest in ever raiding again. LFR lets me see the content and if it wasn't there I would have quit for good ages ago.
Angels and AirwavesCHVRCHΞS - Motion City Soundtrack - Bombay Bicycle Club - Los Campesinos - Empire of the Sun - HellogoodbyeEbonheart Pact - Dunmer - Nightblade - Laethys - High Elf - Assassin - Frostmourne - Undead - Mage - Sea of Sorrows - Norn - ThiefBorderlands 2 - Mechromancer - Battlefield 4 - Engineer - Diablo 3 - Wizard
for me it was when they decided that my playstyle wasn't one they wanted to support. I was happy being overly casual. playing every class with a plan to do so in each faction. I'd be perfectly content in welfare epics as I had been for expansions past. they took away welfare epics for the most part. running all my toons through all of the leveling content to get lfr ready just became too time intensive and it was frustrating that it felt like artificial slowing of progression, only being able to make a slight bit of progress a day requiring many same old boring days to achieve something.
I used to want to just get my toons leveled and geared comfortably enough to not hassle over lowly world mobs and then probably start some leveling guilds and help other players. I guess they thought that it was more important to keep all the players who complained of boredom with something to do by slowing the rate at which they could progress than it was to allow this casual to just be happy to play casually with no intention of leaving because I could always find something to do or wait patiently for something new to come along.
I think the guy who said wow will die a death of a thousand cuts was right on and that that's what has been happening for some time now. I wouldn't be surprised to see blizzard lose players just in the short period of time prior to allowing flight again come this new expansion. they push the envelope and every time they do they push some players on the game board.
I forgot. since I tended to hate being forced to interact with the terrible people wow players could sometimes be, and used the nice open playerless world to come down from bad experiences, when they started merging servers was one of the last straws for me. increasing the players fighting over resources I also saw as another attempt to slow player progression.
not sure anyone has read to this point but other things that really got to be and just helped build resentment towards the way things were going was gold expenditure. sure you could fairly easily have the gold to afford to pay for flying again when you hit level cap but it felt like such a rip after all you've already payed to be able to fly to have to continue to sink money into it. and the more toons you play the more you've spent obviously. it really ticked me off that after the redo of the old world all of the creatures there up to 60 had a chance to drop grey items worth mere copper. you may find it funny that this bugs me but I really liked leveling new toons but when they would fill up there bags with now literally useless garbage rather than something with a reasonable resale value of sat least silver pieces it felt like another slap to the face.
an expansion with no flight, no new race, no new class, few new mounts and a limited type of "player housing" that only lets you build orc mud huts would be a dealbreaker to me.
