Well, looks like we have a date for WoW's massive expansion, December 7th. The patch that starts changing things (the mechanics at least) should hit the US next week and EU the week after. At least according to what has been datamined by MMOchampion.com.

 

Should be interesting

If it makes you two feel better, I played it for a couple years and really enjoyed it.

 

But real men play LotRO. :p

No, real men play City of heroes.

Spent 5 years playing that. Eventually got bored. The game was kind of fun before Burning Crusade, pvp at least for my Pally. But eventually got boring even as IRC :p

PvP has basically devolved into arenas almost completely. There are rated battlegrounds, but in general battlegrounds are just honor farms while the "pro's" play in the arenas where certain class combination's are always ruling.

 

They are adding a new mechanic to paladins (holy power) and changing the resource system for hunters (to "focus).

Yeah Arenas are just garbage, the game could do without them. I really do miss the old AV, hour long struggles, using the cavalry, etc. Ah well. I'll have to avoid getting suckered back in by my friends who need healing :p

The devs have actually said they regret the arena implementation.

 

The ultimate problem with lich king is that it was A) very piecemeal in terms of how content arrived, and B) to easy for the dungeons and somewhat for the earlier raids. This would appear to be changing pretty well in Cata.

I managed to keep my City of Heroes going for two years before letting it slip away.....

 

I think the next mmo I'll dip my finger into will be SW The Old Republic.. just to see how it handles.. and to practice my SW Geek-on.. But thats safely some time away..

I played WoW for about 4 years and loved just about every minute of it. All the raids, all the wipes... good times. But there's time for everything and my quota for Warcraft (and just about all other MMOGs as they still haven't reached the quality of the WoW) is full and then some. Game is great but I have zero desire to buy Cataclysm or otherwise renew my subscription. KotOR Online will be my next MMOG, but I still don't know if I play it pure solo as I would any other singleplayer game, or choose to join my old guild and play some group content.

Let's play Alpha Protocol

I played WoW obsessively for a long time and I always admit it. :) It's a good game if you like such games & have the time to devote to it. But for me at least, there's zero interest in it at this point. I respect that they keep trying to "freshen up" the game all these years, but nothing's bringing me back. Thrill is gone, baby.

 

Will also probably try Old Republic. Undecided about it, but worth trying. The screenies look good, at least. heh

I used to run across that bridge 20-30 times a day for crafting/AH selling reasons. lol

 

You're supposed to be able to fly in the old areas with the new, right? That's admittedly a nice thing, if so. And the underwater stuff sounded cool.

wow sucks

Anyway, I've been playing the Cataclysm beta and I must say I am very pleased with it. Although I haven't played the Goblin and Worgen areas completely I am quite pleased with what I've seen so far. The leveling curve isn't too steep (in fact, it should be a bit steeper) and I haven't stumbled upon any group quests so far in the any of the zones, so it seems to be even more solo friendly than previous expansions. The end quests in each zone are (usually) very, very epic. They are also much more cinematic, with the game often controlling the camera for you.

 

Of course, still being in beta, its extremely buggy and sometimes its impossible to progress further in each zone when a quest is broken because almost every quest is interlinked.

No Aram is right, WoW does suck.

 

I gave it three days, hated it, but I do plan on giving it a shot with Cataclysm... I've been challenged to get to level 20 and not keep playing it.

I came up with Crate 3.0 technology. 

Crate 4.0 - we shall just have to wait and see.
