I liked WotLK. I know there were people who didn't care for that expansion but I did enjoy it. I started playing mid-WotLK so that might explain my fondness for the game. When cata came out I was pretty excited for it. It ended up being an ok expansion. My favorite part was Uldum and the whole Indian Jones theme quest series.
I really wanted to get excited for MoP. I played in the beta. And I ended up getting bored with it. So I was leveling a rogue for a while as I waited for MoP to be released. Then I pre-purchased GW2. After their first BWE, I couldn't go back to playing WoW. It just didn't hold a spell over me like it used to.
I didn't buy this expansion. I'm not going to sit here and rant and rave about how Blizzard sucks. When I was playing the game, I honestly had fun and enjoyed my time spent there. But they have made a lot of changes this time around that I just don't like. And of course, they've been promising to update the older character models and still haven't done so.
I honestly hope that people who did buy MoP are enjoying it. I don't think that this expansion is going to slow down the inevitable decline of WoW. The game is just getting old and everyone knows Blizzard's main focus is on Titan right now. After playing GW2, I simply can't justify paying $15 a month in addition to the expansion purchase price just to access to their game.

Good one. Some of us actually l ike WoW too you know.
If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.
Well you should not even care about 0-2 points since only trolls put them with pure anger. Only diffrence is when 0-2 are vast majority of reviews and with some good arguments (at leasat some of them).
I know that Blizzard would not release anything bad in every aspect so I expect that right now MC is just battlefield Trolls vs Fanboys.

+1, it is laughable
I never pay attention to rating. If I am interested in something I wait to see if there are huge reports on technical issues. I think I will choose what I find is entertaining, definitely don't use review sites to make my decisions.
I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil
Launch was a bit frustrating at 11pm in the UK, with mad lag - it was funny though seeing those gyrocopters trying to take off.
Blizz should have this stuff on lock by though now tbh.
That said, I had work next day so I hit the sack, logged in around 6pm the day after, and things were much better. Once I got into Jade Forest proper, I was impressed. Enjoyed the artwork, quests were pretty seamless, and it generally felt good to be back in new content all on one continent - that's where cata didn't quite hit the spot for me.
As for all the panda-rama, what stands out for me isn't the fact that they are cuddly bears - more that they are the chilled masters of zen and martial arts badasses. I could actually feel myself relaxing as I walked around the garden with lorewalker cho...
Metacritic is a joke. How the hell can anyone score ANY MMO just with in 24 hrs of relese? nonsense.

Originally posted by neobahamut20 Originally posted by Psychow Metacritic is becomming less and less usefull as it's users abuse the ratings. Why is it so hard for people to just "play fair" and rate the game like a normal, unbiased, human being instead of a rabid fanboi or hater? I don't think I even look at ratings anymore unless is some obscure indi game on Steam.
This is filled with flaws and unfortunately for you, I like to point out bullshitters.
First, Metacrititc is not less useful nor more useful. It is a popular marketting tool. You seem to not be able to make the difference between a metacritic score and a user score. The metacritic scores are taken from actual critics and averaged out from there. Sure each critic can be bought off to give a high score SW:TOR but it remains widely used as a first glance reference, even appearing on Steam. As Steam is still gaining in popularity, so is the "usefulness" of metacritic. Many will simply not look at a game with a metacritic score under 50.
The user score is where users rate a game. That score, as all user scores has always and will always be completely worthless. Humans will always rate emotionally and bitter users are far more tempted to write off their emotions on a game than happy users are. (The why is explained in a previous post of mine in this thread)
Then you seem to seriously question why people can't play fair. A valid question with a stupid assumption. The assumption that normal humans are unbiased. Everyone is emotional, even those who do this daily and have their perception included in the actual metacritic score. Life is not fair, humans are not machines. In fact, humans are emotional meatbags with an ego. So the question you are really asking is, why can't humans be objective?
Well objectivity is actually a concept taught along with critical thought. A society able to function with a majority of critical thinkers is unknown to mankind. It is far more efficient for those in charge (corporations, not your Dear Government) to keep people emotional. So from day one, you are taught to live an emotional life. As such, you are sold happiness, along with the concept that money does buy happiness, if only for a little while. However, as true as it might be, it remains an excuse, an excuse fabricated through fear. The only ones to blame are your parents as they have failed you. So why aren't people objective? Because they were let down, by parenting failures and so, they never learned it.
Lastly, your nonsensical rambling makes sense, you make a perceptual judgment of Metacritic's usefulness, as it relates to you alone and emotionally state that you dont look at them.... EXCEPT if its an indie game on Steam. So you go asking why people can't be objective and your very next statement is one that relates and is affected by your own personal perception. Well, the answers you seek fellow human, you stare at them in the mirror and yet remain too blind to notice them.

Certainly a possibility. I do know several people I work with who rushed out and got it. I have heard many bad things from them. All of them,(seven in all so we are not talking about a mass population here) are not going to continue playing it. One of them summed it up pretty well when he said, I was looking for a reason to renew that magic I had with the game, but this clearly isn't it.
My personnal launch experience was great. No DCs, no lag, no queues. Nagrand EU. Way better than GW2 for example.
3.3? It could go to 0.1. I would play it the same way. The expansion doesn't seem great, the game is getting older, but as long as it keeps me entertained for some time, I'm ok with it. When I burnout (again - I have been away from WoW since 1 1/2 year ago), I'll leave. Simple. And I'll do it with 0.1 or 9.9 on Metacritic.

WoW has been out for years, it didnt just release. Its an expansion. Doesnt take you very long, if you already know the game, to see whats changed and know if you like the change or not.
You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks~ WC

Seems like most scores are either very low (0-2) or very high (8-10) with hardly anything in-between, meaning MoP polarised people.
It will be intresting to see sales and sub figures for this.
I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
WoW: MoP isn't that bad, but a 3.3 - I see fanatics from other mmo's judging WoWs new expansion.
But I wish Blizz would have went into a different direction with its new expansion.
Originally posted by Axxar They should disable user scores on Metacritic to prevent this kind of crap.
Ah yes, a censored world is much more fun to live in .. unless people disagree . No worries just label them as heretics and burn them at the stake to shut them up eh? :P

You know user scores on meta critic are acurate because the only way you can rate it is if you purchased and played it.
Originally posted by Eazydzzz Originally posted by Nitth It hasnt even been out a day lol..
That could be why the score is so high. A lot of the people giving it 10s probably didn't play beta.
This made me laugh, thanks for that

You have all the answers. Should I kneel??
Lolz....I also bash wow, but do so in the open as that's how I feel and don't hide behind another account as I'm not bothered what anyone else thinks about me on here anyway. However I find that 3.3 is a little high, but then I never bought it so I'm not able to comment on the game play. IMO it will keep Wow afloat for a few more months that's for sure due to loyal players supporting the game. But alas I feel it's still a dead donkey waiting to be flogged.
