    Need a time killer for the download of 25Gb..? How fast (slow?) is your internet connection if you really need that? Not to mention, that time killer has to be downloaded as well, and you might need a time killer for the time you download the time killer :D

    I wouldn't play WoW for any pvp reasons, League of Legends is far superior in that category. Just be prepared to mute your own teammates.....often. If you want the MMO type pvp Guild Wars 2 is much more balanced then WoW but also gets old quicker due to lack of rewards.

    COD Quake Unreal Tournament  Gears Of War Halo.

    There are lots of PVP games that are more about skill than TIME=reward,albeit COD has strayed from it's roots.

    Time is the exact same thing as Pay to win,becuase you spend more time and money to get ahead of someone else.ALso GEAR in general is a bonus to win factor that is not related to skill.It is actually  the one blemish i don't like in FPS pvp games,the armor pickups,i wish games didn't have them.

    I'm not huge into FPS games i've tried Black Ops and Halo 4 but i'm just to addicted to the MMO pvp side ,  and while i grew away from WOW from playing it since Beta , i find myself not enjoying any other game that i download or buy all i can think about is WOW , but to me it was ruined after Burning Crusade more so when Cataclysm launched.

    I just reinstalled to take advantage of the 10 day free thing they do if you haven't tried cata yet.  I had a lot of fun being back but I won't resub.  It was more of an awesome nostalgia trip because I haven't played since a little after TBC launched.  Only thing that sucked was I had no idea what I was doing with my lvl 70 war and there's so many new systems in place it was a bit daunting.  Gotta say though, for as much shit as it gets there's a reason it's still going strong.  Namely, it's a fun game, and if you want a themepark MMO you'd be hard pressed to find better at the moment.  Game is in desperate need of an engine upgrade though.  I figure they're not doing it because they're focusing on their next big thing (atleast that's what I'm hoping for).

    Not an mmo but an arena deathmatch game, Bloodline Champions super unique quality competitive pvp game, its a cross of WoW arena with a top-down style of a moba.  Only problem is lack of players unfortunatly.

    why would WoW need an engine upgrade? it is the way it is so the most amount of people can play it without having to upgrade their computers.

    Just came back to try out Mists of Pandaria and whatnot. Enjoyed it, bought the expansion and resubbed after the little trial thingy. Got my priest and death knight up to 90, enjoying it.

    No idea how long I'll stay subbed this time, maybe my average of 1-3 months, maybe longer. Lots of content and new systems that I haven't experienced yet that I really am having fun with, though.

    Game has been going for 7 years now, most people playing it have already upgraded their computers to some degree.  As fun as it is, the game is an eyesore right now.

    thats where you're wrong. most people playing it have the shittiest computers in existance. the reason that is so is because thats the stance blizzard took with WoW. if WoW were to upgrade their engine, millions would have to upgrade their PC and millions would NOT upgrade their PC just to continue playing WoW mainly due to money reasons.

    I've never been a really big WOW supporter, and always thought the graphics left much to be desired, though I understand due the performance problems a complete upgrade would bring.

    However, I have to say, the Pandaria zones look excellent. It's still Warcraft, and the infamous art style, but trust me, there's many newer games that are more of an.. "eye sore" than Warcraft.

    I'm starting to kinda feel this way i played Guild Wars 2 for a month and just hated the game, made WOW look really good, and the last couple days i've been eyeballing wow and this morning started installing itr.  I'm gonna give it a try , dunno how long i'll play but im pretty stoked about Camelot Unchained in the future as well as Elders Scroll Online but just need that time killer till then
