    And don't double post. Every time you double post Blizzard brings back a dead character back in an upcoming expansion.

    Talking about why WoW might be a bad game isn't a discussion about WoW?

    AHA! That's why there's so many "resurrections" now adays. I almost started to think that the npcs of WoW finally figured out how to go from the graveyard back to their corpse.

    Besides all of the bosses in WoW being way to big, and the ONE boss in TBC that SHOULD be absolutely immense beyond imagining is the one boss that is slightly smaller than the rest... GG....

    and besides his being invulnerable to damage during the whole scenario in WC3...

    There was absolutely no mention, appearance or hint at the presence of the Eternal Dragonflight... which completely disregards the lore of the Caverns of Time....

    the Raid should have focused on attacking the Human/Horde/Night Elf bases alongside the Scourge because the Dragons were protecting them, and then protecting Archimonde from being distracted as Malfurion got the Horn of Cenarius so things could play out properly...

    As for WoW being boring. I agree... I played that game on and off for two or three years and, though it had amazing potential, it was never realized to any great effect. I did enjoy exlporing when there was still exploring to do, and i did enjoy doing instances with friends. But mostly, that game sucked. The focus on everyone getting the same gear was saddening. I always wanted to create a unique and interesting character, and WoW does not allow for that... The world was also way to small, all of the town are necessary to visit, there are no random towns in the wilderness (which really takes away from the warcraft feel) and the main characters are generally hard to visit, lazy and boring or barely a part of the game at all.

    I miss what WoW should have been...

    Admittedly, i still feel the lure of it, and i may get WotLK with my neighbor and play to 80 and make a new character, but i have my doubts... even he is bored of it... he has like, t5/t6 and a high level guild and 3 70s and like, four brothers who all have 70's and play with him... he has everything one could ask for in that game...

    WoW is a fun game to some extent. However, I do also however think some aspects of the game is rather boring, such as leveling, even if it is necessary. Grinding, farming, getting ganked, dailies, farming rep, farming, farming farming.... "World of Farmcraft", I don't like it, but I know many other does, so I shall not flame it further, it is a great game, but an official ass-raper of lore.

    Blizzard rapes the lore in WoW because they can, because they own it. Even to the disdain of fans across the world.

    The game is fun, but a lot of parts are tedious like farming, leveling, and dailies. (As mentioned.) And for those that say people playing WoW have no lives, that's true for a lot of the ones that do. But some of us are able to detach ourselves and have higher priority when it comes to stuff like parties and hanging out with friends. I personally would never give up hanging out with a bunch of friends on Friday to raiding.

    All MMORPGs like WoW have some kind of grinding in it.

    Newsflash nobody gives a shit about the lore neither the fans do, they want to Kill Illidan and Arthas, and not care why did they kill him.In short they want fat lewtz!

    The only people that care about lore are Role-Players and we all know they're a bunch of No-lifers.

    Oh yeah, and regular WoW fans totally have lives too.

    BS, if you play WoW PERIOD you tend to be a nerd and/or social outcast just because you devote so much time to a game. On the internet.

    And it's generally not the fucking roleplayerss, but the fucking WARCRAFT III FANS that get pissed about the lore because they're seeing their favourite series get wrecked. The mass majority of WoW players have never touched WC3, and as such couldn't give a flying fuck about the lore.

    THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK.

    Oh I just love how people tell their own opinnion as a universal fact. As Brad.Dude03 pointed out, alot of the people who played Warcraft 3 (and previous Warcraft titles) do care about lore and what WoW does to it. Also I've seen some people who have been introduced into Warcraft by WoW, but after learning about the retcons they have began to dislike them.

    I'm sorry but it simply isn't smart to just bend lore as much as you want to make a game, especially when there have been years and years of work into the lore. I mean, Mythic wasn't allowed to just suddenly bend Warhammer lore and do something like "Hey, the High Elves and Dark Elves are now friends!" Now, I'm not denying that they did not bend lore, but they didn't bend it TOO much.

    How would you feel if Blizzard suddenly decided to move the Orcs to the Alliance since they decided that "Thrall and Varian are now best friendz 4evah!", despite all the current lore explaining otherwise?

    So you're saying if you play WoW you have automaticly have no life?
    Thats such a stupid and untrue statement.Don't you understand that to get to level 70 you don't need to play all day every day.
    Also if Wc3 fans don't like the lore of WoW then don't play it.The fact is the a vast majority of WoW players don't care about the lore.
    I admit you were right in correcting me about whos crying about the lore.

    I care about the lore :|

    Which reminds me, what parts are you people complaining about now? They're starting to retcon raids out, so it can't be them I don't think. So what are your major lore complaints at the moment, because I've been happy with the WotLK stuff we've gotten so far

    I cry because Bolvar died, as did the son of Saurfang. But that's okay. They died to the coolest character to exist, who then gets killed by the alliance. That I don't approve of. Varithramas rebelling was only natural, so that was good lore. Hmm... I can't think of anything particularly distasteful that they did yet, except resurrecting Muradin.

    Which was maybe the ugliest possible way to resurrect him:
    "Who am I?"
