    Brawler's guild, for me at least, is horrible and not fun.  But I'm not a challenge player, never have been and this facet of the game seems to be all about just beating a really hard boss solo.  Fine for those who like it, but I just can't stand it personally.

    Why in the world should something labeled as "Legendary" be simple to get?  This is why MMOs are basically garbage now because it takes no effort to get anything anymore.  It should take you months to get something "Legendary".

    legendary should be harder not easier, otherwise it's not legendary, pvp is more fun now than ever before and is not so reliant on popping cd's n bursting, requires more strategic teamwork, n that goes for arenas rbgs and WPVP, only minor issue iv come across is the weekly quest with battlefield barrens, iv been lookin forward to the garrosh went crazy line for a while, n I just don't get the sense of accomplishment or anything moving forward yet, I realize more will come out in 5.4, but I was inda hopin for vol'jin to move closer towards it, or maybe build a diff city or sumthinfrom the "ashes" of razor hill.  Not a major city of course, itll still b razor hill, but have a random cosmetic change while we'r grinding all these resources, other than that I enjoy this patch and look forward to more

    You obviously have no idea which quest line I'm talking about here.  This quest http://www.wowhead.com/quest=31473 is the one that annoys me.  I don't mind it taking a few months, and apparently it takes like 6 weeks per legendary quest arc, so that's quite awhile, but I'm not a hardcore raider so a quest like the one in that link just makes me log off.  I don't think that was their intent do you?  I'd think they'd rather have me playing and having fun.

    Again, this is another case of people thinking time spent = challenge.  When the 2 are not anywhere near each other.  Time spent does not make content challenging.  IMHO.

    GhostCrawler is doing a great job. Making tons of money for blizzard. Sure he ruined the game but hey The guy really knows how to polish Turds.

    Screw leveling games, give me something with "End game" at the beginning of the game.

    Ghostcrawler's accomplishments: millions of paying customers have quit with him leading design and more Hello Kitty Online on WoW with Kung Fu Pandas. How does this man keep his job?

    When they are bleeding customers left and right every way to try to get new players or ex-players back and promote your product is a good idea.

    and yet when games do make legendaries super rare, you get nothing but wow players that scream and whine to make it easier to obtain

    Umm...you do reslise that MoP was released in Sept of 2012, and not a single player has the legendary gear yet, right?

    If thats not "takes months to get", then god help us lol

    Never played Vanilla and farmed Molten Core for the sides of the book for Thunderfury did ya? competition for items is a lost art.... ah well..., at least now you dont have to face off against everyone else to get a shot at the item.. its "random" ,  sure, but at least you know you will get it eventually.  Complaining about a " Legendary" item is pathetic... you do realize that for it to be a legendary item there is usually only a handful of them or the even better ones.... Only one! be thankful they have the hamsters hammering out the replicas in the back  halls of iron Forge.....

    Played: UO, LotR, WoW, SWG, DDO, AoC, EVE, Warhammer, TF2, EQ2, SWTOR, TSW, CSS, KF, L4D, AoW, WoT

    Playing: The Secret World until Citadel of Sorcery goes into Alpha testing.

    Tired of: Linear quest games, dailies, and dumbed down games

    Anticipating:Citadel of Sorcery

    WoW's not my taste anymore though I do like LFR, I just dislike the daily quest routine doesn't feel like a game anymore felt like a job. WoW clean since early 2013.

    Possibly going to play FFX ARR.

    no other choice but to laugh at such a statement.

     

    incase you ever find ANY other mmo with a similiar ammount of subscribers AFTER THAT TIME running. lemme know about it.

    yep disliking the daily content also.. seems the devs had a lack of content so used dailies to fill in.. a complete waste of data IMO.....

     

    On another note, i recall someone mentioning all the classes have CC abilities now.. and while this is true the utter lack of CC needs in dungeons and raids is still exceedingly evident... It looks like the future of WoW is PVP focused 

     

    Talent tree wise I am not a fan ... players complained about cookie cutter templates.. wonder how they feel about it now since blizz truly made it cookie cutter with so few useful talents....

     

    the RNG system leaves alot of player  frustrated.. not only for the drops for the legendary quest line but even upgrades can be a mind boggling experience. I know I had to run LFR 50+ times with the use of the elder charms and still haven't gotten the bow for my hunter... yet I have two guildies that have gotten it in as few as 3 runs. It is very frustrating. I understand its random but as I said.. leaves alot to be desired.

    LFR's are fun, havent tried the pokewow... not interested in brawlers guild... the 5.3 scenarios are a heck of a challenge and fun as all hell.

     

    WoW isnt for everyone, but theres alot of slamming that happens in these threads and the forums. You dont like it,.. great, im sure theres alot of players in WoW who could say the same about any game you my play.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all, I've always thought this was one of the main reasons for WoW's success. What is a surprise is how other developers seem determined not to learn this lesson.

    That and no one seems to get the spell casting down. Any other MMO i've played has laggy, unresponsive spell casting, character movement. WOW just flows, and spells go off when you push the button. And no my computer is not lacking.

    Where in my post did I say your game was bad? The comment was that Cataclysm is widely regarded as the worst of the wow xpacs. The lore follow up from WotLK just drifted off into....wherever it went.

    As for the population, you bring out the worst xpac and the population drops - significantly. There's a correlation there somewhere. It is ok quoting a random 8 million number - however accurate or otherwise that maybe. The question to ask is - how many of those lost subs would have been retained if the original lore and content quality of the game had been retained?
