I love MMORPG's, especially fantasy PVE MMO's, and no MMO has ever had as much polish and run so smoothly as WOW. The art style is rich and the colors vibrant. The class system is simple, yet excellent. There are tons and tons of things WOW did just right.
But I cannot bring myself to play WOW, much as a I need an MMO to play. "Phasing", "cutscenes", "linear storyline gameplay" just grate on me. I mean really grate; nerd rage stuff. Seriously, I'm almost gnashing my teeth when I see what the new dev team has done to this game.
Any time I send a character out into the world, I wonder what phased portion of the world I am in or am missing, and feel my character must be completely out of sync in this manner with the rest of the population. The game just feels disjointed now, like it is no longer a world.
WOW was a great game, but until they scale back this overuse of "phasing" and handholding (really control over how you play), I cannot bring myself to resub. I really think the new dev team has gone down a very bad design path with this game.
