Is it just me or do you feel this way too?
When i really started to see it go downhill just in my own personal opinion was taking the reward out of raiding. Of course you still get the reward of killing the boss with friends and stuff and thats cool but rewards in games used to make you feel differentiated from the "lower beings" of the world simply because you kicked more *** and put more time in.
The content in WoW has always been extremely fun to me, most of the time it blew my mind. Its all really well coreographed or whatever and only gotten more-so over time simply because they had to make the content available to a much more casual gamer. So the fights are somewhat easier as far as length but the co-ordination required to do the hardest modes in the game is pretty sweet.
Gear is probably the biggest reward. How could it not be? You grind bosses and instances weekly to earn it. So what happens when every single player in the game, casual or hardcore is wearing the same exact gear set with possibly slightly higher or lower stats?
I dont know about you but WoW lost its sense of reward for me when they started handing out damn near raid equivalent gear from heroic badges.
I still played it tho, of course, i made tons of friends and i loved the content, ive always loved the content.
I had full every single tier set on my priest from the very beginning, i grinded that and had a ton of fun raiding it too.
The content in WoW oh man how incredible i think it is.
I wasnt able to enjoy it as much as i used to tho. If youve played WoW as long as i have you may know what i mean.
I still played but i found myself chillin in town alt tabbing and browsing the net all the time.
I dont need to feel "elite" to feel rewarded, i just want to feel rewarded for conquering the hardest content.
The last rewarding feelings i remember are of course killing the bosses with my friends, wonderful people, and getting a mount.
Thats the last reward i remember getting from pretty much every raid.
Theres a lot of incredible things in WoW, the content is avast? i think thats right, whatevs.
To me it just lost its rewarding feeling, a real one, like i actually did conquer a great boss fight.
Not only did they homogenise the classes more and more and more but they homogenised the gear sets. (How do you spell that freakin word?)
Im pretty sure theres more but i need to stop writing now.
I love WoW as a whole but ya know.
