World of Warcraft: Six New Realms Open

StraddenStradden Managing EditorHalifax, NSPosts: 6,696Member

World of Warcraft opens six new realms just before the expansion launch.

We've opened six brand new realms, and with them comes the introduction of a new battlegroup: Emberstorm! These realms are new non-transfer realms and as such The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj are closed and the realms will not be available for Paid Character Moves for six months. We invite new and old players alike to join these realms and begin fresh adventures in Azeroth.

    Im not going to race to 70, I dont see the point. You pay to enjoy a game, take in the scenes, why rush?



    Its just so sad WoW has such an anti-social community. :(

    Eh, our guild is already talking about what ELSE we will be doing besides playing WoW next week.  We are looking forward to another launch... in which our particular server was DOWN for the first 3 days of release.

    But yea, in all I think the advice to step away from the game and do something else is the best.  Vacation time is over once the servers get more stable.

    If the expansion is every bit as bad as I expect it to be i'll be more than eagerly looking forward to some of the new launches in the coming months.



     It will be fun to explore the new lands but, with 7 level 60's i doubt that many more than 2 or 3 of then will ever see 70 or anything close to it. I went from being an Avid Blizzard fan to pretty much anti Blizzard over the course of the last two years of broken promises, inept coding and server management and incompetent game management from Blizzard.  I



     think it will be good to get away from the game for several months (if not years) i'll probably not ever buy another Blizzard product again however seing as the whole company has hung its hat on WoW that is not likely to be an issue for me or Blizzard.

    Well that's what you get when you make a game an item-based grindfest, everyone is out for themselves.

    Getting ready for BC, hmmm.

    Well, when I play BC, I will be sitting in my new house drinking beer I made with my new Mr. Beer contraption.

    It took me a year and a half to hit 60 with one character, so I won't be holding my breath for 70 anytime soon. I'm actually looking forward to starting a new character with one of the new races. That way I can try out shaman AND jewel-crafting. And, you know, have another alt. I'm not addicted. I can stop making alts anytime I want. I just need to try out this class. And profession.

    Oh man, now I need to go make up an alt.

    Let's see... I'll be ....

    Transfering 3 of my characters to Arygos because Blizz let Draka get so overcrowded we've had to live with 800+ queues ..at least its a free transfer, but a pain in the arse to do.  But that's OK ...because I cancelled my accounts last month... so that I can...

    Play DAOC for awhile ....went back in November, been having a great time killing people in the Battlegrounds... working off some of the pent up agression I got from WoW's pvp...

    Noticed that Vanguard is in open beta...hmm... why not?  Time for something new.....

    Take down the Christmas tree...its starting to stink....

    Waiting to hear my son swear next week when he can't get into BC and play cause his server's crashing....

     

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    I'll be hitting 60 tonight with my shaman and pvping to my little hearts content to get my epic 1h warlords axe before BC comes out.  Will also prolly mess around in beta some more until they turn it off LOL.

    I'm not buying the Expansion at first but I'll still be logging on just to add to massive queues and lag problems Blizzard still hasn't managed to fix after 2 years.     I look forward to helping make this release every bit as painful as the original release and watching the hordes of people endlessly complain about crashes as though that will make any difference (or has EVER made any difference) to Blizzard.

    Eventually I suppose I'll but the expansion but only because WAR isn't scheduled to come out until the end of the year, so I'll have that long to putter around in WoW before I switch games.

    You should be spending the last week before TBC to contemplate why you want to continue doing mindless raids. Because T3 has become obsolete?

    I won't be buying TBC and will soon be closing 2 of my 3 WoW accounts. (Leaving the 3rd for my son who is still having fun with it till he leaves when WAR comes out.)

    I have recently gone back to playing DAoC.  I need a game with good PvP and DAoC has the best.  I'm having a blast on one of the classic servers and am happy to be back.  So unless WoW does something about it's horrible sub-par PvP I'll be blowing holes in keep walls, ramming keep doors, and storming the keep fighting off the Albs and Mids, RAWR!  Seige equipment FTW! 

    Can't wait for WAR to come out.  Looking forward to new kicking RvR in the Warhammer universe :)
