I must say, I've seen WoW fans in a tizzy before. I recall when the WoW fans were up in arms over the Mists of Pandaria debacle. I, however, have never seen the legion of WoW trolls ban together against one, single game in all my life. That day has come. The game? Wildstar.
I've been following these forums for quite some time now, and I've been in WoW's, looking at the topics going on. Nothing but Wildstar Mudsliggin'. "The cartoon graphics suck". "Wow is stylized realism, not cartoon!" "Game looks for children". "But WoW has an expansion about Pandas..." "MoP is not about pandas... it's about war". (written as is- didn't correct a thing).
I have seen comment sections in WoW news flooded with how much of a better game WoW is than Wildstar, how Wildstar is a WoW rip-off, pretty much all the comments pertaining to defaming Wildstar and not talking about their own game. This carries over into their own forums. Honestly, I'm surprised Blizzard hasn't added a "Wildstar Haters Ball" forum thread.
I have to say- it impresses me. When most of the bad reviews for Wildstar are "Just play WoW" or "I can't put my hand on it, but something about Wildstar...", then I have to think, Carbine must be doing something right.
If Wildstar didn't have the potential, the legion of WoW trolls wouldn't even bat an eyelash at it. But the groupthink in that community is so toxic, that it's leaked into this one, and into Wildstars own.
On the Wildstar forums, there is an isht ton of haterade fueled posts. They all resort back to "THE GREAT DIVINE WoW" being the one and only, blah blah blah.
It's like watching an ex-girlfriend/boyfriend spread rumors around in High School. These people are literally taking time to get access to the Beta simply to fill the chat with WoW posts, and to get on here and make one of the many hate posts we see on here.
We've heard every reason why Wildstar sucks. Cartoon graphics, out-dated combat (huh?), WoW was first, someones life was too stressful to play Wildstar... it cracks me up. Everytime I read a troll post, I think to myself- "Why are you even here, then?"
Not all WoW fans are like this. Trust me, I know. But the ones that are like this are the ones showing their teeth in these forums, and all I have to say is,
Free promotion, baby! Spend your time in your game talking about another game you have "absolutely no interest in playing".
We'll see you on Nexus soon enough, I'm sure.

"Im ready for
All the comparisons
I think its dumb and its embarrassing
Im switching off
No longer listening
Ive had enough of persecution and conditioning
Maybe its instinct- Were only animal" - Lily Allen, Sheezus
