I miss the old Wow world style

PaddyspubPaddyspub mcpherson, KSPosts: 104Member

Restarted after MOP came out and so far its ok, but when I go back to the old world (1-60 zones, Cata 80-85 zones).  If just feels like Wow but MOP zones and the current exp just feels like an asian version of it  (no offense to asian players or culture).   I also think they made alot of mistakes like too many dailies,  gated rep gear, slowing lving past 85,  alt-unfriendly, etc), also flying unfriendly  (cant fly when you died, wtf!)   But also did make some good changes like the zones are pretty i guess.

Anyway just my 2 cents.

Tbe Repopulation will be what SWTOR shouldve been.

    I couldn't play the 80 to 85 content in Cataclysm, so you've done better than I did. I did play through the low level content though and thought it was a pretty good job. I don't think anything will really capture the feeling of the Burning Crusade though, especially the island that I can't remember. Oh well. At least I have the experience of what it was like to play through it when it released. :-)

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!

    I got through the 80 to 85 content - once,  2 years ago

    I have no interest in ever doing it again,  it wasnt fun

     

    prior to Cata, I had 80s of every class because I enjoyed leveling in WOW

    regardless,  WOW is still fun to many players -- but I don't enjoy PostCata WOW

    About two weeks ago I reactivated my account since early Cata and started a monk; really enjoyed him up to level 80. Once I got to Hyjal, I couldn't even force myself to finish one quest and logged off. I got on my 85 pally and started leveling him. I will most likely do sporadic leveling of my monk so I would be using just rested xp to get to 85.

    i did something similar a month ago

    I got my monk as far as 75 and stopped playing because I did not want to experience Cata again

    Iam glad i played from 2004 to 2012.
    I have great memory's of almost every aspect wow offered.

    Warsong gulch and early AV
    Tarren Mill / South Shore
    Tyr's Hand i believe its called ? where we farmed gold ? massive fucking gank spot with elite mobs ^^
    Early raids like MC / BWL / ZG
    The community was one of the best, on Korgal at least we had so many guilds farming raids....it was lag fest from start to finish.
    Grinding Rank 13/14 with guild m8's

    It was a great era, and blizzard cared.....for us.


    TBC....epic expansionprolly the best expansion when looking back at all of them.
    OP druids OP warlocks OP rogues OP Hunters OP Warriors evrything was fucking OP
    Fucking Shockadins :)
    Leveling trough TBC was great, pvp going on almost everywhere.
    Farming gear was fun, even for alts.
    Farming shit for netherdrake oh hell yeah epic days. damn egg's !!!
    Dungeons on hardcore mode
    Raids on hardcore mode
    Crafting was good for most profesions
    Arena's where fun even with its flaws
    Battlegrounds where fun to
    Twinking was fun also !!!
    Overal TBC still owns a special place and a very good job done by Blizzard


    WotLK.....Hero class....big mistake
    PvP was less fun for some reason
    Raids dint feel the same for me anymore
    Ghostcrawler took over the lead......
    nerf buff nerf bufff nerf buff nerf buff....drastic class changes incomming, often changing the classes for the worse.
    It was still fun, but it never picked up the momentum TBC had....
    Average Xpack in my opinion.


    Cataclysm...No class would ever feel the same again....
    To many game breaking changes.
    Core mechanics of classes who i loved where never the same anymore from that moment.
    I quited 2 times within 6 months.
    Each patch i felt more detatched from the once epic World of Warcraft...
    The magic of Azeroth was depleted....empty.....but it could still change for the good.......untill they announced Mist of Pandaria...
    The final blow was given and a bitter vet would retire.

    After playing on 5 Servers for many many years....my Axe was burried and my Sword would never pierce a Gnome again...

    But many fond memory i still cherrish....If only....GC was not in charge and Tigole would still have leaded.....
    Maybe it would still be one of the best mmo's out there :)

    fuck i got carried away again !!!

    Same here, I think Cataclysm totally ruined the feeling of the world but also the questing in "old world".

    I had 5 level 80 characters in WotLK, because leveling was fun back then.

    Only 2 in Cataclysm (my main DK for PvE, and my Feral Druid for PvP).

    I have only 1 in Pandaria and don't intend to level another, because the leveling experience in Pandaria is the worst in WoW history... everything is totally linear, you have no room for improvisation, for exploration.

    I wish they would start a couple of servers with the pre-Cataclysm WoW world, or at least restore some of the ruined areas to their old state slowly, like e.g. rebuilt the Dam in Loch Modan, which was one of my favorite low level areas when the lake was still there and which is completely ruined now.

    Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2, The Crew, SotA

    Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

    Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO, SW:TOR and GW2.

    Me too. I have so much nostalgia for the old pre-cata zones.

    If you didn't get to help open the AQ gates....you really missed the fun part of WoW

     

    an entire server pushing every day to open up new content... constant fighting in the sands between factions for resources... every level helping.  It was FUCKING AWESOME.

     

    and then you go into AQ..... and get your face stomped... then you come back and for more.

     

    Twin Emps... I will miss you.

    I have to disagree with that. TBC was just the beginning of the downhill slide for Wow.  Guilds died because of all the raids dropping to 25 mans, resilience was introduced and that was the end of all fun pvp in wow.  Flying mounts did have their fun, yes I got a netherdrake. In the vanilla stages I raided everything, cleared all content except lvl 60 naxxramus, which we were on the 4 horsemen. I raided 3 times or so in TBC and that was enough, I ended up just quitting the game until Wrath came out. I did enjoy Wrath far more then TBC but it was still nothing compared to the game in its original state. When I was playing my Grand Marshal human warrior or my undead High Warlord warrior I was enjoying killing people in all forms of gear, be it pvp or pve. The indroduction of resilience sort of destroyed pvp, nobody stood a chance against someone in full resilience gear when they had pve gear on at that point. Yes, there was a ton of grinding to do in the beginning, but that never changed throughout the game at all. I quit for good during Cataclysm, long before they even released Deathwing.

    In a world of sharp knives, you would be a spoon.

    uhh... this would be awkward. lol  I'm sure that they chose an asian-type theme because of the pandarens. they have been around a while and they needed to make a scene.  :P

     I'm partial to Lich King.

     

    Main Reason is because of possibly the best class I've ever played in an MMO.  The Death Knight.  2H Plate Wearing, Disease spreading class of death.  The perfect blend of Melee and magic for me. 

     

    I know I am in the minority here but it was the 1st expansion where I actually enjoyed raiding.  Naxxramas was amazing because it was accessible, fun and had the right blend of depth and accountability.  Plus I loved the 5 man heroic deungeons, gear was decent and the bosses were fun but not overly hard.  I have never been a fan of wiping over and over to figure something out, ala the BC way.  I prefer to actually go in a dungeon and beat it with minimal focus. 

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    This is pretty much how I feel as well. TBC was cool, it was nice to finally have new zones to level through and new instances to explore, but once the new wore off it just wasn't as fun.


  • SinakuSinaku Austin, TXPosts: 481Member Uncommon

    When they changed the old 1-60 zones it pretty much killed WoW off for me finally :/ I have only played the free trial of MOP and it wasn't enough to bring me back. I was bored after about 2 hours. Sad day...I use to have a lot of fun in WoW.

  • NizurNizur Austin, TXPosts: 1,417Member

    I would say TBC was the beginning of the end for me as well. I loved vanilla WoW despite its drawbacks. I had a crap ton of alts and enjoyed leveling all of them. So many good memories and our guild was going strong. TBC hit and it was fun at first, but I quickly grew tired of it. The raiding just wasn't as fun and our guild fell apart. Leveling seemed more tedious, and I only managed to get two toons to max before I couldn't bring myself to do it anymore.

    I unsubbed before WotLK came out. Resubbed a year later and maxed one toon before getting bored and unsubbing again. Resubbed again right before Cata for nostalgia reasons, but only lasted around 1 month once Cata was introduced. I hated it. I haven't subbed again since. MoP just looks like more of the same.

    Actually for me it would be enough to go with vanilla/TBC ruleset - exp, gear farming, no rbg, dungs and raids that feel at least a bit tough

    I'm with you, not for the simplicity though, special modes for bosses and then heroic modes were actually quite challenging, coming from someone who got his Ulduar mount at the right level and with the right gear. Introducing different difficulty levels so more people could experience the raid content everyone pays for was actually a stroke of genius from Blizzard. Fights like Prof. Putricide Heroic are some of the most fun and challenging ones in WoW history.

    I'm with you because I simply believe that still right now, today, WotLK is the best expansion ever released for a mainstream MMORPG, be it for solo, group or raiding content. The amount added was tremendous, yet the game wasn't as linear as Cataclysm made it, and the quality was top notch. And yeah, playing a DK was great, just the introduction instance was worth at least trying that class.

    WotLK, right now in 2013, 5 years after its release, is still the best MMO expansion ever in my top list. I'm still waiting to see a better expansion released for any existing AAA game. I had my best time in WoW during that expansion.
