I'm still amazed that WoW still has a massive cult following even if the game is now in the road of decline, at it's peak WoW had roughly 12-13 million subscribers, now it's just 9 million. Even with the loss it's still the most popular MMORPG in the world and next year the game marks it's 10th anniversary, still it makes me wonder how much longer WoW will last until Blizzard pulls the plug on this now decade old game?
For me I seem to have a love and hate thing for WoW, I've not played WoW (excluding private servers that is) since the beginning of Cataclysm. I first played WoW back in April 2006 when WoW was in it's Vanilla form, an old friend got me into the game and he was showing me the ropes of how to play and it felt great, I loved the scence of adventure and becoming a powerful hero. Get me wrong, it's a great game on it's own but that's the problem, it's now only good on it's own. The biggest majority who play WoW today give no polite social interaction whatsoever, for what I know you don't really need a guild anymore to do the highest level raids, nowhere days it's all cross server public grouping or PuGs as it's known in WoW. The chances of getting people on your friends list are next to non, I actually had Internet Trolls bullying me in-game just because I used to complain on the official forums a lot, this is because I have nowhere else to share my complaints about the game. I thought WoW was about teamwork and helping others out when they need it, yet instead I end up being a lone wolf who would never get good high end gear, you would think you can do the game on your own maybe by pvp but you'll soon to swarmed to death by fully epic gear people so what's the bloody point if everyone else is trolling 24/7?
I suppose this is why I don't play WoW anymore, because nobody wants to be your friend. We all know a game is much better when played with friends, a game without any is boring.
What I'm trying to say is, I don't hate the game, I hate most of the players and that is why I think I'll never come back.
