Fury Warrior with full BOA gear in BGs from lvl 10 through 29, after that it becomes …not all that much fun anymore.

Tooling around on a 71 feral druid tricked out in mostly BOA and AH stuff, learning PvP all over again in BGs. I never really became good at PvP, plus the spec kinda held me back a little bit maybe, so I’m hoping this learning experience will enable me to take my main and kick some butt inside cities for a last movie. Or not.

Still unhappy with the way they went with instanced content and cross-server content at the expense of server communities and the WORLD of WARcraft. I never really cared much for the “craft” part of WoW. But I did care about the WORLD and the WAR.

Now I’m in BGs fighting people named “Television” and “Hahahahaha”?? “Ipwnsomuc”?

Not interested in playing long-term anymore.

Happened on some interesting tidbits about how Alterac Valley and WSG was originally meant to be *IN* the game-world, but they had to go the instanced way since they couldn’t make it even remotely fair. Which is understandable. Hat’s off to the developers for making a great game that’s insanely successful.

Funny how I’ve been playing for five years, mostly on, a bit off – and I still consider myself a PvP noob. I have flashes of brilliance though. Winning a 3v1 against higher-levels on my Fury Warrior in WSG. Sure, gear was a part of it, split-second timing and stance-dancing another part. Jumping from the bottom to the top of the WSG flag room is kinda cool, too.

EDIT: “Turdnugget”, “Analdespair”?? Have fun guys, you all enjoy this game. Are you seriously telling me it’s too much for Blizzard to disallow terms like “Turd” and “Anal” in the character name creation filters? You gotta be kidding me. Or maybe I’m just too old and cranky and don’t realize that “It’s just a game”.

The following is the text of what I originally wrote as my reasons for leaving the game when the Acct Mgmt page asks you why. Apparently it’s too long and the page just reboots when you put this in and try to cancel. So I’m posting here and trying to cancel without giving a reason or somesuch. Acct time runs out June 30th iirc. Hopefully by then I’ll be well on my way to do the irl pvp thing.

.

TLDR: Lack of a “WORLD” in the world of warcraft. Plus pushing the enforcement of server rules, naming rules, forum moderation onto the player base. Specifically the Naming Policy, with grumpy old me just not happy with seeing people run around with racist or sexual or massively-high-ASCII names.

Log in.
Teleport.
Instanced raid.
Instanced arena.
Instanced BG.
Instanced dungeon.
Teleport.
Log out.

Sound like fun and interesting MMO story-driven gameplay to you?

Take away the teleports. Make BGs a part of the open world. Make raids a part of the open world. Make flying mounts just as dangerous as ground mounts. Give everyone a way to dismount people hovering afk. Give everyone an auto-parachute. Stop faction transfers. Promote server communities instead of battlegroup anonymous instanced content. Stop people posting on alts.

What’s the lore justification for being able to click a button and teleport out of a dungeon or Wintergrasp?

You’re right, there isn’t one. It’s not a story anymore. It’s not a world anymore. It’s just a collection of instances with some fancy scenery in between.

You ban me from the forums but prefer to keep the anonymous alts posting hate and vitriol. Good luck. I’m sure you’ll be very successful with the convenience now-first-last-and-always crowd. RP rulesets that aren’t enforced unless players complain??

How many character names do you expect me to report every day? 10?
100?

At which point does too much become TOO MUCH?

Players on Normal and PVP servers are there because they don’t care if someone is named “Darthbunny” or “Arthasxxlol” or “éûzzøolπ”. But there’s absolutely no support whatsoever of naming regs on RP and RP-PVP servers. “Turdburglar”? “Skinheadswp”? “Analboi”?

You push ALL of the responsibility for this onto the playerbase, and I’m not interested in fighting that uphill battle anymore. I no longer care about the environment on my server, since every single dungeon and BG I go into has people from different rulesets that I only see for a few minutes and then never again. Seen a few names now with one or two normal characters and the rest high-ASCII. What?

World pvp.
Tight-knit server communities.
Rivalries. Vendettas. Faction pride.

Congratulations, you’re hugely successful. But this game isn’t for me anymore.

Minor issues:

Tauren on flamingoes and dragonhawks. Graphics clipping. Invisible walls. Easy Raider ™. Lack of an Algalon unlockable encounter in ICC. Stop-gap stuff like the Argent Tournament. Lolburstlolpvp. Homogenizing classes. Overloading my UI and my skills at macro’ing together the 20-30 abilities I use on a regular basis in or COMING OUT OF cat form. And now you want to just add some more stuff? Mushrooms?? Life Grip? (A.k.a. “Griefer’s Paradise”). Greater Internet F***wad Theory haven on server and other forums. Sure the game is tons better now than it was back at 60 and pre-60. But it was also a WORLD back then. Now it’s just a collection of instances with some fancy stuff in between.

TOTAL CLUSTERF***:

Disc priest (pretty much any priest that you don’t specifically KNOW to be Shadow or Holy – i.e. most any priest that didn’t just step out of a raid instance or that you see in Shadowform. Yeah. GG brother.)

Paladin – forget it dude, even if you get the drop on him when he’s at 20% health.

DK in Frost Presence? Swirling bones means he’s Unholy. Diseases that last for OMG how long that you can do almost approximately jack squat about. Diddly-squat. Gargoyle. Stunsalot permanent pet. Unless you think you can get the kill in the first ten seconds or he’ll forget to self-heal for 40% of his health with Dark Pact don’t even.

Resto Shaman

Resto Druid

…unless you vastly outgear them or have mad skills. Everything else is at least POSSIBLE.

Yo, dude.

30 Core of Earth

60 Gyrochronatom

60 Fused Wiring (120 Essence of Fire, 90 Delicate Copper Wire (180 Copper Bars and an alt with lvl 1 JC))

240 Mithril Bars

30 Truesilver Bars

30 Heart of Fire

30 Big Iron Bombs (45 Iron Bars + 45 Heavy Blasting Powder + 15 Silver Contacts)

Now go make 30 each of Lil’ Smoky and Pet Bombling (schematics easily had after 30min of googling the drops and running Gnomeragan) and send the BOE pets to all the people who have ever helped you out on the server. I guarantee that the vast majority of them will be happy and like it. Hop to it.

WHAT? YOUR MAIN ISN’T AN ENGINEER??

Loser.

Go switch professions to something that’s actually FUN. You know, like this game used to be?

“You can be the most badass cowboy on the entire fucking battlegroup but if people don’t like raiding with you, you’re going no where.” – Kastille

I’d rather not work with a RL who cares more about “his” loot or “his” legendary than they care about progression or the other 24 raiders.
.

“Trust me, man – if I thought us doing this [to get jackass his something for the Legendary on un-killed progression boss rather than wait for next week] was going to be the difference between killing him (her, actually), I’d say fug it! But it won’t, and we don’t have to do anything that holds us back on dps, we just have to do [this and that and yada yada special procedure early in the fight that slightly lowers our dps] …” – roughly paraphrased.

Trust me, if I thought me not being there would be the difference between killing the boss or not, I’d change my plans and not /gquit.

Ok, that last part was a bit facetious. But that’s about what I was told by several different people when I said we should just try to kill the boss this week.

I’ll be almost exclusively world pvp’ing until I either go away for Army fun or Cataclysm hits. Yeay.
