10 days before I'm sold to World of Warcraft, HELP!!!

I don't want to pay the monthly sub! Save me community! : )

I just wonder if there is as engaging multiplayer game out there for the free to play player...one where I have purpose playing and progressing a character...

I know there is a big playerbase on these forums that is not fond of World of Warcraft, but what else I should be fond of, really?

    Just do this:

    RUN FOR THE HILLS!!!

    I hear that the community there is quite awesome. Oh and everything you do has meaning(or it should). Anyways...

    :p

    As to your question, what does this part mean to you:

    "one where I have purpose playing and progressing a character"?

    I ask this because there could be QUITE A LOT answers to this one. Some are content with doing it in IP they prefer, others prefer to do it in company of others while third enjoy doing as the part of greater whole(story). And there are quite a bit others not to mention hybrids. And all the answers are correct because they are FUN TO YOU. Can't recommend anything without you answering this one.

    If you don't want to pay a sub, don't.  Stop playing MMOs until  you find one you like.  Stop acting like the world is going to end because  you can't sit in front of a computer screen bashing pixels for hours a day.

    It's really not that difficult.  Don't like the games?  Stop playing them.

    Played: UO, EQ, WoW, DDO, SWG, AO, CoH, EvE, TR, AoC, GW, GA, Aion, Allods, lots more
    Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
    Now Playing: None
    Hope: None

    Ya, I second this!

    TSW would be my next choice I think, but I am going to try the WoW patch and see what it is about.  I usually only hang around for about a month anyway, and it should be a fun time. $15 isn't bad really. /shrug

    Thx for the suggestion. I would be curious what exacly GW2 offers at endgame that would keep me busy for a good amount of time. I know its endgame has been highly criticized.

    Also I am hoping by now if I would ever consider buying the game the price to drastically drop. I enjoyed GW1 a lot but decided to skip GW2 this time.

    What type of endgame do you prefer? It's hard to suggest anything when for all I know your favorite past-time could be building super computers or sniffing glue while you watch It's always Sunny reruns. :)

    I feel the safest answer is EQ2 as it is similar to WOW, with tons of content to experience.

    Why do you want to quit WoW and what would stop you from quitting it if you don't find another game?

    I guess I just don't understand this mentality of continuing to play something that you don't enjoy.

  • HricaHrica Mocksville, NCPosts: 1,125Member Uncommon

    play WoW

    at least you can login, . .crank the graphics up...and be entertained by barrens General chat if all else falls

    Well, the end game in GW2 is no different than any other game in all honesty. I don't really think they will drop the price much less than $50. It is a great game for the price considering it has no sub.

    But honestly, since you really aren't sure, you should probably just re-sub to WoW, and in a few months you will have paid for that copy of GW2. Blizzard loves our cash! :) I will be giving them mine again soon.

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    Try EQ1, EQ2, Vanguard, Runes of Magic, Runescape.. They are all playable to some extent without monthly fees.

    Rift, GW2, TSW

     

    At this stage of the game, I could not recommend WoW to even my worse enemy.

    But WoW still has the best endgame.

  • MaelzraelMaelzrael Las Cruces, NMPosts: 354Member Uncommon

    Rift, Gw2, Swtor(ftp version is trash though), Aion, Tera, Age of Wushu, FIREFALL(I like this one a lot), Secret World. Star Trek, DCUO, Planetside 2, Neverwinter..  And I'm sure there's more.

    Yeah I felt like GW2 was a fantastic ride up until max level, but that the game really offered no reason to keep playing past that point.  So while I'm mostly positive about GW2, it's not a game worth playing longterm.

    I personally work to 80 just to get started in GW2. I guess it depends on who you are and what you are striving for in each game you play! :)

    I've never gotten so much from a game for so little money.

  • MindTriggerMindTrigger La Quinta, CAPosts: 2,596Member

    TSW is infinitely more interesting than GW2, IMO.  Better yet, go get GW1.  It has more soul than both newer games combined.

     

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    Just play what you like and feel it will give you fun. No matter what others think about it.

    As for the Sub, you do realise that an MMO sub is in many cases Less than a single Movie Theater Ticket right?

     

    If you pay the same amount for 2 hours of entertainment to watch a movie, why is it too much to pay the same amount for many many hours Sub for a month for entertainment playing a game?

    Rift is the best so far out there.  Graphics, Gameplay and Endgame are all very good.

    A MMO that was once subscription is your best option. Come to think of it for most players that would seem to be the choice they have already made.

    If you really have to play wow, go private server cause blizzard doesn't deserve your money.

    Blizzard is to greedy for my taste, you pay alot of money for nothing and everything you want to do (little things like switch server) costs money and there is a sub.

    Go private and cheat them of there money.

    Here is a good example for what happend to me, some man in a foreign country hacked my acount and sold gold on it so I got a mail that my acount was comprimized. So I contacted blizzard and they informed me that me and my acount was banned for ever and I had to buy a new game.

    Yeah that sucks but it's not the worst part, they kept charging me anyway for the acount every month.

    I had to go to my bank and inform them to stop giving my money to this greedy company cause it's not like I could login on my acount and stop it myself cause Blizzard had removed me as an user.

    There you have biggest ripoff company in the world and you shouldn't donate anything to them.
     

    I think everyone how has played this game have been hacked by a gold farmer many times and thats just enoying. It shouldn't be like that in the biggest mmo game in the world for 7-9 years.

    Buy another game if you really like wow then buy Rift cause its so much better.

    I personally don't like or play Rift but thats cause I don't like wow either and they are very much alike in UI and stuff so its easy to get in to. Rift is a much better game any day.

    peace out

    GW2 Rules :)

    If you want to play WoW but don't want to pay a sub then go for one of those things which cannot be spoken of. I've been back totally NOT playing Vanilla WoW with normal progression rates and loving it.
