Having run out of things to do after cataclysm and refusing to accept the panda tween demographic this game now panders too my sub is finally ending. The 1 year for d3 thing tricked me like many others which is why I have lasted this long.

World PvP was some of the most fun I had over the years. So to recreate it I'm using the glyph of disguise to flag alliance for PvP in redridge. "One of these gnolls is not like the others..."

 I know it sounds like noob baiting but the full heirloom folks fall for it just as much. So far the perfect end to a very long wow career. Yes you can have my stuff, if you are on Arathor.

If you're reading and posting in this sub-forum, have you really quit WoW?  why so serious?

This sub forum is like an AA meeting; I need reinforcement that the game is still bad so I don't fall off the wagon.

Do people actually read posts "by sub-forum"? I've been using "Show unread posts since last visit" since I signed up. :P

I successfully resisted re-installing WoW just a couple of days ago, as I was listening on Skype to a couple of friends doing PvP. Then I gave it a second thought and went "Hmmmm. Nah."

The game really isn't a fundamentally different game from the one I played for seven years, I'm not going to call it a bad game, it isn't anywhere near one of those. I was just tired of it.

I just tried that and it has posts about politics and SWToR in it.

I have the same reaction when people don't know that the little yellow boxes are links, though.

If you go by that criteria, you'll never play another game of any sort ever again.

Every time I returned to WoW since launch (at least 1-2 times per expansion it always seemed), it depended on what the current end-expansion's attraction was since I know that is the destination I will end up living in once rerolled.

Classic and BC were both awesome, plain and simple.

When WotLK was end-game, I leveled up again and looked forward to it because it continued somewhat in the vein of BC before it (but imo not as good since the over-simplifications had started by then).

When Cata was end-game, I leveled up and didn't so much look forward to end-game as see all the changes throughout leveling and fly around the Old World a bit.

Now that MoP is end-game, and I already played a monk and rogue to max to see the content and grind, there is no desire whatsoever to level up again any more with that as the destination. Or to pass through that expansion again if yet another expansion comes out later.

MoP killed my usually-renewable interest finally. I can't even start leveling in a game with an expansion to pass through that I hate the very idea of encountering again.

If I want to look at WoW now, I just log in to Feenix once in a while for classic or BC content.

I'd still be playing if it was BC even though the race choices were terrible. Not pandas terrible but still. Story stayed important for that content and even wrath. I even liked the world questing overhaul in cata.

For me though the real killer was dungeon queues. Now you can level to cap without ever leaving a city. That killed the PvP servers. The excitement of leveling in the world was gone. I could quest for days and never see anyone to skirmish with.

OK its also pandas. God what in the hell were they thinking.

I liked the panda/Asian theme. I did not like the grind, and that the thought of running every single one of my alts, which is one of each class, to cap again was soul crushing.

I've resubbed several times, but I don't think it's happened since before the first expansion.

I actually liked world PvP. The BGs were cool too, until I hit the 50-60 tier...Not sure what Blizzard was thinking allowing max-level full-purples derps to PvP against people still leveling up. I think getting randomly killed by lame Hunters is what finally did it for me.

I think having pandaria be the sum total of the landmass was a mistake.  Pandas were fine, like them or not but it was hard to make players care about panda lands and they stuck it in our face non stop.  I didn't mind personally but I can see how it'd be too much.

Agreed, Panderia killed it for me because no matter how they tried, it's just not WoW, it's Pandaland the themepark. Spacegoats I could handle, it was loosely built into lore and then retconned.

Pandas were an April 1st joke by Samwise that got taken too far.

Exactly. I have a friend who's massively happy playing and I read her posts on facebook and think "hmm maybe" then come here to get my head straight again.

I got most of the way through the leveling experience which was enjoyable IMO, and the new art is all fantastic.

Then I saw what the endgame was shaping up to be, concluded that Blizzard had actually learned nothing from Cata, and unsubbed again.

I know.  It is literally amazing how many people freak out about Pandas when Taruen have been around since day one, and while Playable Worgen are relatively new, the creature has been around since day one as well.
