I started playing WOW in November 2004 and quit in Aug 2005. Never looked back
Your theory is incorrect
This game is a joke, I quit after level 35 I was angry at getting killed by Orks when I finally got off Darnasus, I knew I needed to level up some more doing some easier quests but I thought to my self "What is the point of this game"?
Went on 2 Private servers and quit within 4 months on both. I just get bored of it. What I like about WoW is the Lore and the amazing looking world but the gameplay is horrible and graphics cartoon like. Have I quit for good? Yes, the theory is wrong. I have thought about returning but there are other games I rather play like Skyrim mods.
Originally posted by Thane a) there are people who know what this game can / has to offer and b) there are people who played it because other people play it, to be part of the hype a) hardly leaves. agreed. b) thinks the LFR tool is everything, and after completing it they think their game is done
a) leaves because they are not new to MMOs and don't find the game particularly challenging or enjoyable
b) are probably the ones that stay, because they are casual and don't know any better.
Well, I played WoW from Burning Crusade to the middle of Cataclysm. I had a real good time and enjoyed it. But after these years i realized, that the game went into a direction I had less fun with. Things like the "dumbing down"/ lack of epic quests, the massive difficulty loss in every aspect of the game (well, ok, not PvP) and finally very poor raids and stories like the argentum tournament or most of the Cataclysm Lore.
Finally, at the start of MOP, i never wanted to get back. I left this game behind. It truly is not for me anymore.
I have been off WoW since Cataclysm, BUT I did go back during cataclysm to kill deathwing which took a couple of weeks.
I seem to go back at the expansion release and level my character but when I hit essentially the same endgame again I just can't be bothered with it any more, I have made that many characters over the years that levelling from the start doesn't even appeal.
I could stick it out if my old guild existed but everyone went there seperate ways and it's hard to recreate that once it's gone.
I was playing WOW during the first 3 months of release. Got to level 60, saw where the game was headed with raids and gear grind. me and a friend decided to see how much 'fun' the raids were going to be (had heard talk of just following orders, no freewill, DKP etc...) so we both joined a raid, Pretended to follow all orders, did absolutely nothing during it, still got DKP....total bore fest.
Quit after my 3 month subscription ended.
Never went back.

I would imagine doing nothing is boring hahaha, what did you expect to happen if you didnt do anything?
Back in vanilla WoW you could carry people that done nothing in a raid pretty easily, you still can in the LFR level of raids but if you tried just tagging along pretending in any content from the burning crusade onwards you would be found out pretty swiftly.
Total paid time in wow for me is 4 and a half years spent from release and forward in various sized chunks of time, haven't had WoW installed since shortly after the release of cata and haven't played it for over 2 years, obviously haven't bought MoP nor did I consider it beyond a possible time filler to GW2 before either release dates were confirmed.
I'm not coming back, not to the WoW we know atleast so I don't think the title is accurate.
3 years of WoW-free and going strong
Quit WOW before the first expansion TBC haven't been back have no plans of returning. Now I did return toEQ2 for a bit.
I play WoW for about 1-2months years ago and then was so bored I deleted everything on the account and the game off my computer and then toss out the game.
I dont even remember the email I use for it anymore.
Awesome video! (at least the commentary...even IF it is about WoW)
I quit WoW 6 months before MOP because of MOP
It isn't even installed on my system anymore!
Sadly, I still have a stupid subscription until April because of Dialbo 3....

Yes, No, Yes. In that order.

Actually from my experience that's very far from truth.
Everyone quits WoW at some stage of their lives. Sometimes people comes back, a lot of times they don't. However the good thing with WoW is when some leave usually there is enough newblood to replace it.
That and plus sometimes people quit playing WoW but just don't cancel their sub, for whatever reasons.
Originally posted by zenryoku I quit WoW years ago and have no regrets. After the Diablo 3 fiasco, Blizz will never get another dime from me.
I DIDNT LIKE THE GAME! WHAT A FIASCO!
