The Good Old Days
First off let me give some credit, I hear through the blogosphere of all the asshats that we find on LFG. What about those that do there job. Last night I was in a pug so fantastic, I never wanted them to go. If I screw up with spelling, and I forgot one person, cause I’m doing this off the top of my head. It was Iconiq, and his friend Pally on Manneroth, Poppilee a Hunter from Medivh, and Negal a Tree Druid from Durotan. We went into UK, and got the job done fast, real fast and professional. First boss the Prince dude, we downed in 24 seconds. I just like giving credit where credit is due.
Ok lets get to the meat of my discussion. The WoW of 5 years ago, is not the WoW it is today. Inspired by this post by Mach. Tanking isn’t the same, but then I thought. Nothing is the same as it was. This MMO has evolved so much, it’s almost not the same game. I think Blizzard has watered down this game so much, it’s starting to get to the point where I feel it’s like a Free 2 Play game.
Maybe I’m just getting old, and having played this game for so long I am resisstant to change, but I’m not sure making thing easier is the best course of action. The reason I play WoW so much is I am invested into this toon. This little guy of mine, I spent time on him, trying to make him better. I spent hours upon hours of farming, and raiding trying to get the gear I need to make myself better. Know how many times I’ve been to MC, and BWL back in the day. On my tank do you know how many crotches I had to look at, more then a cheap hooker giving BJ’s that’s for sure.
I don’t want to get all nostalgic, but I do want to point out that this game is evolving into something different, I haven’t quite made up my mind if I like or dislike the changes as of yet, but it IS changing. Where we end up, I don’t know. I do look forward though to see where things go. I was starting to lose hope with Trials of the Champion, but then ICC hit, and my faith restored somewhat, then I saw Neutral Defias Thugs in Northshire, and my faith knocked dow a peg.
Bottomline I just worry WoW will be flooded with Morons that don’t know how to play becuase things were too easy.
