    Blizzards Greed and other more fun mmorpg´s...

    I can´t see the reason to pay every month for a game and on top of that pay for the expansions. I mean we pay every month for the game so they can continue to develop and improve the game do we not? Or do we just pay so much for the service and the GM´s??

     

     

    Playing now - GW2

    Playing soon - GW2 and Darkfall 2.0 :)

    Pretty simple for me really. I was tired of playing it. Played it a long time, had a lot of fun, met a lot of nice people regardless of what everyone says about the community (remember folks assholes are everywhere not just in WoW). So I noticed I wasn't logging in anymore and quit. Not the first time that happened and I'm sure not the last.

    Cataclysm. 

     

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    WoW just got boring for me. I distinctly remember standing around Dalaran one day and thinking "Why do I even login to play this game anymore?". That was the day I quit.

    New games, WoW just became out-dated and worse as time went on.

    Exactly..  End game was a mind numbing meaningless treadmill..  One tier after another after another..  If the game promoted the OPEN world moreso then the private instancing, and focused on social gaming instead of cliques I'd still be playing.. but oh well..

    I got sick of scheduling my life around a game in order to get the best gear.

    I found a direct correlation between the time I spent logged into World of Warcraft and the decrease of my ability to reason or perform simple tasks.

    The more I played, the dumber I got.  So I quit before WoW removed enough of my neurons to render me incapable of saving myself from certain dumb.

    there's something wrong with my wow account? Oh no!!!

     

    @Kadepsyson: if you truly believe what you rote, you didn't remove yourself on time. Might as well keep playing.

    I think what I "rote" and what you "rote" in response clearly substantiate my claims.

    When it became a second job and not a game. 

    "For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"
    ~Lord George Gordon Byron

    while english is my third langauge, that missing 'w' was a keyboard error...my failure on that part. I won't try to excuse it as a language problem. :)

    edit: keyboard's old. it doesn't always do what I want it to do. especially in the WASD area...:)

    5 new level`s for $40 seems like a ripoff to me

    I felt Blizzard and it's developers had lost touch with what I enjoyed about the game. I also felt with the amount of money coming in they should have been providing conent on a much better release schedule than they were and had grown lazy overall.

    When my account was inactive, I was just a regular guy. Once I re-activated  I'm doing Quantam Physics. Go figure...

    I play currently, but have left the game for long periods of time. Each time it's either because End Game became boring, or (most recently) because they changed my class in a siginificant way to negatively affect the way I played with my friends. We had a decent 3's team, nowhere near top ranking but we had fun and we stuck around 1500-1600. Then Blizz changed each of our classes in a massive balancing sweep, and despite 3 weeks of trying to adjust we just couldn't seem to maintain an even win/loss ratio.

    I'll likely leave again when they completely rework the classes for 'balance'. But for now the new content has been a blast.

    This^^

    But before that I left WoW a couple of months before Cataclysm because I was tired of the whole gear grind. Got sick of doing the same thing every day just to maybe get that one piece of gear I wanted(or needed according to all the elitists out there).
