I remember when at one time I was very much in love with World of Warcraft. I remember when I was looking at the screenshots of the game when it was in development and that I was playing Warcraft 2 and 3 over and over and over because I could barely contain my excitement to actually BE IN AZEROTH. I think my old computer actually hated me for playing Warcraft so much *laughs*.
2004 rolled around and here was Azeroth and all its beauty. God it was awesome. Risk and reward was worth it and it made me excited to see what else Blizzard could come up with. You actaully learned so much about your class and it was just fun to be in Azeroth. To feel like a part of the Alliance or Horde. And who could forget about the 3+ days of Alterac Valley? Ahhh...so wonderful and grand a time it was. What's next, Blizzard?! was all I could ask.
The Burning Crusade in 2006, I think it was. Sure, there was some murmurings about space goats and emo-elves. But the expansion was great (though secretly I was always a fan of this expansion. I always liked Outland and I'm not sure why). There were somethings I didn't care for that came out of The Burning Crusade. Like how roles of the classes had started to die out. But it was still enjoyable. And the battlegrounds just felt...not as fun as they once were. Maybe they'll do better in the next expansion?
2008 and here came Wrath of the Lich King. Death Knights? Cool! Who doesn't love Death Knights? Ummm...wow. There are alot of Death Knights. Ok, to be expected. Wait....I have to learn my class all over again? Why? And what's up with this phased zones? Mmm...ok. Story is ok, I guess. Wrath Gate was beautiful and Zul'Drak was a nice zone. Mmmph. Something seem out of place here. This isn't as great as it once was. Another 10 levels and now I've got to do more runs for gear? Why am I farming faction again? This is getting monotonous.
2010 and Cataclysm hits. Ugh...here we go again. They story is good, but now I have to learn my class.....AGAIN?!?! Christ Almighty come on! And why is my class even MORE worthless than it once was?! Yeah, other than the story, this expansion is a Cataclysm. And now another gear grind/faction grind. Crafting sucks worse than in Wrath. Battlegrounds are just zerg fests. Ugh...this is the best that Blizzard had to offer?
2012 and here comes the Mists of Panderia tomorrow. I didn't preorder it. I'm not even subbed to WoW anymore. Seven years since the launch of the game and enough was enough. When I watched BlizzCon last year, I just couldn't feel excited for it. In fact, I think seeing what I saw just made it worse for me. I felt disgusted by what I saw. The new talent tress, to me, feel forced with no real sense of choice. I was never sure what they were trying to accomplish with the new trees. And watching BlizzCon it almost had a feel of people saying: What the hell is this?
I'm just curious if you guys, or how many of you guys have the same feeling as I do. How many of you just don't feel the excitement anymore? How many of you are excited? Can you feel excited for what WoW has become or what are you feelings on this? Where do you think they're going with it?
