Today I realized something; I can't bear this game any longer.
I've been playing it for a long time and off, and recently i've been playing a lot with my real life friends and my brother. They're all lowish levels, and i'm the only 60 out of the bunch. I've made countless alts to play with them at their level, and leveled with them...but they keep making new toons and so do I.
I've played every class but a priest until level 30, and than my friends start leveling their other toons, so than I decided I would too. All the while, forgetting I have a level 60.
Well, I got poor one day, and looked through all my toons to find something to sell.. my level 55 friend was in AV at the time so I said, "what the hell". I started loving it, and than over the course of two weeks or so, started playing (only AV, didn't want to deal with fighting people in all raid gear again like I did in the 60 bracket), and just having a blast. I decided i'd play so much i'd get a HWL weapon and than possibly level in Outlands.
Well, I did. I got HWL Pig Sticker, and logged into Outlands for the first time. My game started being all choppy, for the first time EVER. Even in peak hours in any main city, Horde or Alliance, I NEVER lagged at all. But now, for some reason Outlands makes my mouse and character lag, and so my reflexes are slower. I power through a few quests, than take a break and eat dinner. When I log back on again, I think to myself. Jesus Christ, this game sucks so horribly.
I'm standing there at in front of a quest giver, debating in my head whether to take the quest or not. I really, REALLY, don't want to. Every quest is exactly the same. EXACTLY THE SAME, and now I have to do about a thousand more before I start having fun again(PvP)? There's no way. I don't even know how I did those few quests....I honestly don't. I've grinded the same shit(it honestly is all the same, don't lie to youreself)that all use the same moves, and I always end up doing the same moves in the same order to kill it.
For 60 levels, I don't even know how I got to 60 anymore without my friends playing(basically the only time I have fun is when my friends are on) with me, but that isn't the point. I'd usually log on some of my alts, playing with my friends, counting how many times I have to kill x of these, get x of these from the same guys I have to kill x of these for...blah..blah.. I only leveled to PvP, I only had fun when I would PvP. Now i'm sick of AV, the only BG I can do.
Okay? Level an alt? Did that.... Raid? That means i'll have to get into a guild that aren't full of elitest pricks which is very, VERY hard to do.... level to 70? FOR WHAT? Why would I level to 70, doing the same exact quests? I'll have to go up against raiders, in my (if i'm LUCKY) BoP blues, that will essentially own me up doing the only thing I like doing.
In conclusion, I can't stand this game anymore because of its' weak overall PvP system, boring quests, and complete and total itemization and imbalance between levels.
How is this game even fun anymore?
