Playing on alts and working on Seeker of Knowledge title. May jump back into pet battles. Haven't done them in forever.
Lots to do in WoW. And the only other game I'm playing is Hearthstone so...
The dungeons are amazing. At least they were until they stopped caring, roughly around the time Mists dropped. They didn't put any time or energy into updating the dungeons as they should have (every other expansion, IMO) so the result is the dungeons feeling stale and people rushing through and not letting newer players take the time to experience things properly and/or learn. As for the amount of continents, uh, again, WoW's had a few years to have that much stuff. Wildstar, which was just released, has a huge and expensive world to explore. Rift does also. And Rift's collection/artifact system is far superior than anything collection related WoW's come up with.
Numbers aren't everything. If you go by numbers, 50 Shades of Grey is one of the best series of all time. If you go by numbers, Rihanna is a better artist than Cher, Prince, Aerosmith, and Guns N'Roses. If you go by numbers, Frozen is better than Pirates of the Carribbean. Do you see how that logic is faulty? Just because something is popular, doesn't mean it is superior.
Check your numbers. None of other MMOs currently on the market have "zero official subscribers" or else they wouldn't be on the market. LoTR, Rift, Wildstar, etc. are still thriving. They may not have millions, but they have devs who care about their players enough to actually speak TO their players and not down to them. They are way more polished IE graphics of 2014 quality and not 2003 quality. I could go on.
You need to check your sources before throwing out dribble like that.
Sorry but LOTRO, RIFT and around 2 billion others have ZERO official subscribers. They are integrated into their number of free to play mechanics, camouflaging things all over the place.
The fact of the matter is that these sub based launched things transformed to free to play without ANY official subscriptions at all. Sure you can take some premium options, but these things are quite hidden for the public to be known under an avalanche of FREE TO PLAY mechanics.
They are free to play things, just like Farmville 2 or Hearthstone. But they LACK any decent multi million players like these 2 examples and they come FAR behind in active player numbers WHILE being FREE...
Go figure how much they stink.
The avatar movement in LOTRO always was a laugh and always will be. Rift was a bleak mini copycat of WoW the day it launched with appaling game play and an incredible absent Lore.
Rift had 99 full servers at launch as a subscription based game, now as FREE to play it crumbled to ... 15 half filled servers world wide in less than 2.5 years.
-----> Comparing free to play with official only subscription based games is like talking BS all over the place btw.

And no, you cannot count level 20 and level 30 AB as 2 separate BGs.
This is even more stupid than your normal drabble.
Pokemon FC: 1091 - 8286 - 2221 Aman Add me
I accidentally let my 6 month sub tick over, so yeah...
As such, a far better solution than raise some gear" between a lvl 20 and a lvl 60..."
I might say again that numbers speak for themselves IF FREE to play MMO's have far less players than WoW subscribers.
You have to be a complete idiot if you want to talk player numbers in FREE to play games and compare them with ... WoW only subscribers.
As stated: Diablo3 has only a box price and it sold 20 MILLION already. These figures are nowhere to be found in the WoW competitors.
That's a sign of how much worse these copycats really are.
We knew it back then in 2008 and we know it now. The difference is called quality.
We play quality. You may go down town with the free stuff.

Like crossing seamlessly zones in an open world play and not even having a basic form of human/animal transportation.
I mean, every time you face a loading screen to go visit something as trivial as a city gate.... your immersion goes right through the window.
And I thought Invisible walls everywhere were left behind in the 90's. 2D forests were brilliant in Tabula Rasa ... too.
Someone should mention to GW2 developpers the fact that the human kind has had animal transportation and mounts for 10.000 years already. That is "content" far more than putting a question mark on a hastely created dude in a corner of a closed zone.
To have some EXTRA stuff is nice, to scrap everything is being cheap.

Raiding H-SoO, doing pet battles, and doing flex/normal raiding on alts. Plenty to do.
Only 800k what?
I have read this thread and I still got no clue what OP is talking about.
It's bad. There's very little to do and what there is, isn't really interesting. It's like an unpleasant job. I am continuing it solely on hopes that WoD will make whatever little progress I am making now in rare mounts, etc, worthwhile. There's a serious risk it won't.
Playing arena with my 1000000 alts ofc. and making gold for WoD there is a lot of stuff to do really... :P
Seems lots jumped into defence mode, but there was never no attack!
This may for the first time since the fourth week in vanilla, I stopped my two active accounts! to put it quite simply....I ran out of steam, the fire went out.
I do not ridicule any one for playing any game they enjoy!
Was I shocked that wow only lost 800k ? yes I was, but my main question was and still is valid.
What keeps your fires burning.
Thank you to those who posted honest......GOOD LUCK WITH THE DROPS
It's not even full 11 months since it was released. And it usually takes at least 2-3 months to consume all content. So you should be looking at 9 months of no new content at the very best.
I really hate when people start putting in random numbers.
Don't try to backpedal on being another "cancelled my sub" elitist. You put it out there, gut up and stick with it.
