or alterative title: Anyone else miss the good ol' days of vanilla and TBC?
I just cant keep up with the changes to this game over the years and I feel this is another change of direction from Blizzard........ and imo its not for the better.
Ok let me level with you first, I've played WoW on and off since 6 months after vanilla release. I played and loved the hell out of it in both vanilla and TBC but found I became bored easily in WoTLK and Cataclysm..........MoP unfortunately continues that trend for me.
Part of it is I don't think I'm part of the target audience these days. I think the WoW I knew and loved is dead and buried and in its place is a completely different beast. The inclusion of pandas and what I can only describe as pokemon style pet battles has just tipped things over the edge for me and it seems blizzard are more focused on attracting new younger players into the game than appealing to its older players.
From beta the game seemed pleasant enough however with the more child like appeal to it I think my time in Azeroth has come to an end. Its still a great game but for us vets who loved the original game and TBC I fear this is a step too far. I may pick this up once its in the bargain bin further down the line but until then I'll be making the switch to GW2.
Anyone else in the same boat as me? Or are you happy with all the changes?
