    I doubt any one new except a few free trial people play WoW nowadays from lvl 1 up. I just tried last week and it was a very boring experience. Stopped playing my undead hunter at lvl 16 or so. All easy fetch and kill quests, no challenge at all, even with beginner equipment, no interesting story, no funny moments. And I did read all the quest texts. Have to admit I am not really a fan of WoW's art style but even if I ignored that the zones just looked uninspired and bland to me.

    So I doubt WoW gets any new subscribers who start from the beginning. They probably just try to keep the existing playerbase or make ex players resubscribe and the buff up to max level. Which is fine. But for someone like me who likes to enjoy the leveling and not only the endgame it is not the right game to play.

    My significant other started fresh just 2 months ago, her druid is now 112. She has a void elf priest at 72. She still has her 110 boost. She enjoyed experiencing some of the content, some of it was a drag.

    I would love to create a Void Elf alt. Shame it's such a drag to unlock the darn race! :-/

    I absolutely hate the addition of Allied Races. You've got to work hard to obtain something that requires you to start the game all over again to make use of it. Now, you've got to play 'old' content to unlock most of them as well. It's madness.

    I think it's great. They need more things that you have to earn that aren't just handed to you.

    Yeah, that's my feeling as well. People who don't want to play through old content should just accept they won't get access to those allied races, just like they won't get the Onyxia mount if they don't repeatedly visit a raid from Wrath of the Lich King. Want the flishing raft? Get Revered with The Anglers in Mists of Pandaria just like everyone else did.

    The Allied Races are rewards given out for accomplishments and in that respect they're no different than any other reward that needs to be earned.
    The Onyxia mount is funny, I got it but me getting it caused a friend to quit. 

    He had been running the raid for months trying to get it to drop, brought me along (first time ever running it) and I asked if I could roll if it dropped, he said yes. It dropped, and I won it. I didn't realize at the time how low the drop rate was, and that he had been running it for that long, but he quit for a good 2 years after that.

    Until they removed rng crafting.. I am out..

    Consider yourself permanently out as the entire game is built around RNG on top of RNG on top of RNG
    I don't know of a system in game in BDO that isn't RNG. It's actually insane. 

    I personally love RNG crafting or RNG enchantments, but man is it super excessive in BDO.

    I'm still mad that the bidding system in the auction house is RNG on pearl items (value packs specifically). I can't get a value pack because you get pooled into a group and randomly chosen to get it. The amount of bots that buy them instantly makes it such a small chance you get it.

    Free 2 Play, With Pay 2 Enjoy NC Coin Cash Shop !

    $10 Per Plastic Surgery Ticket, while BDO is like $10 for an entire month of character editing...

    Are you editing your characters that frequently that you need more than 1 edit?

    Personally I think the BDO cash shop is pretty bad with cost, the fact that you can't just straight up buy a month of Value Pack and have to spend 20 dollars to get something that only costs 15 is dumb as hell.
