1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.
2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.
3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

This is what I find funny about the WoW playerbase, as a whole, not just you OP.

No one sees the hilarity in that? no one? Okay..
PlayingNothingwaiting forThe secret worldPlayedWoW, DCU online, star wars: the old republic, city of heroes, city of villains, everquest, plenty more I'm probably forgetting or aren't worth noting.
Posts like these are plain circle-jerks. It's like saying "If you could go back to highschool and reunite with your HS girlfriend" would you do it?
Your HS girlfriend was awesome, then she changed, you both changed, went off to college and did new things. You're a different person now than you were before and probably wouldn't enjoy what you liked back then either.
It's the same reason your grandparents say "Remember the days when we use to hike 5 miles to school and gas cost 5 cents a gallon?"
I'd like to go back but I can't drag it out any longer. They're attempts to fix things that aren't broken have killed what enjoyment I could find in the game.
It's ugly and the world is lifeless now to boot, especially once you've memorized EVERYTHING - it makes it feel like wondering around your own garage in boredom. Not big on themeparks I guess, or elves and dragons and such nonsense.
Been poking around in TSW - it needs alot of polish but it's pretty enjoyable. Combat is good, skill/progression interesting and flexible (up for expiermentation like WOW was originally)
Didn't buy it yet but I think I will end up going there permenantely.
Originally posted by Zylaxx Only way I'd go back is if they quit pandering to the masses and make true old school MMO features. Guild halls, Player housing, explorable content, Alternate Advancement for skills and abilities and some other sandbox features. They would also need to transition over to a horizontal gear scaling and do away with vertical progression.
So basically turn it into something that it never was or was promised to be. Also you can say you want the original expansionless WoW back all you want, but at the end of the day that wouldn't satisfy you. Find another game.

It's not as simple as that.
It's because of the "EZ-Mode" mentality. Vanilla and TBC had the content. But it took time to get through it. You had to build up, there was a logical progression. in Vanilla and TBC.
Come 3.1, it got all screwed up. They sped up the ride. faster and faster, you had to burn through it, all the while completely making previous content irrelevant. I've said it before, When you have to release 5 man instances with better gear drops than the 20man raid instances in the same level to compensate for the gap for new or under geared, the game is broken.
It's not that they gave us what we "bitched" for.
It's what they gave us was #$^%&@ broken!
In a world of sharp knives, you would be a spoon.
For Vanilla, I'd go back for nostalgia's sake.
40 man raids? Hella fun. Nothing like it since. Those were the days. Molten Core, Blackwing's Lair, Ahn'Qiraj... *sigh*
And then they could follow through with TBC and I'd keep at it provided I find a fun enough guild to run with.
If it was up to The Burning Crusade, but before The Isle of Quel'danas. That was some of the worst rep-grind that was added up until that point.
As a matter of fact I consider that the turning point of where Blizzard statered releasing Rep-grind like it was actual content.
That, and if the got rid of Arena and focused more on Open World PvP and Battlegrounds.
Personally I could give a crap about Deathknights, Goblins, Worgen, Pandas or even (the) Cataclysm or the Lich King.

IMO, I believe the turn for the worst started with the intro of "EZ-Mode" Which if memory serves was patch 2.3. This included sparkly quest objectives increased XP gains 1-60 etc etc.
Go back before that, and I'd re sub today.
All hail the Barn Owl! oh.. and the RED SQUIRREL!!!
Wouldn't have the time to play on vanilla servers anymore. Farming runecloth for bandages, juju's in winterspring, BL buffs, zandalaar buffs, ...
Not to mention i can't stomach wow's combat anymore. Too old and too static.
Done with Bliz and Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street

Hell no! That game is done.
