Guilds can shield you from the general public of WoW.
I agree with Sammy. If you have a guild (a functional one that raids), they put raids on the calendar, you sign up and all you have to do once at the level cap is show up, do the raid, log off and that's it. There's nothing else to do, really, except dailies...maybe.
That limits your interaction with the poor general populace of WoW. Guild members are "cool" and you only hang with them. You port right to the instance in most cases, so you don't even have to deal with all the zone chat.
Having to deal with idiots, for the rest of us, is part of the game and is one of the reasons I'm done with it.
The WoW community was horrible to being with and has only gotten worse.

You think this attitude is any different from the "brownnosing elitist assholes" (whatever that is supposed to mean)? Just because you take the polar opposite point of view doesn't make it any less obnoxious. Most WoW players either play solo or with their friends. Many of them are perfectly civil and will be receptive to requests for help, grouping for dungeons, etc. All of the complaints you have made about the game stem from your own attitude and unwillingness to try to get along with other people.
Almost NO good guilds have a large group of members that act high-and-mighty or better than other people. Players you encounter who belittle you or act rudely for no reason are usually pretty awful themselves and should simply be ignored. The vast majority of the time they are simply trolls - same thing, ignore them. Unless you play on a very low population server, you just aren't trying at all to meet like-minded people to enjoy the game with.
If you're just burned out on the game or don't enjoy it anymore, just cancel your subscription and stop playing. No reason to whine about the community and make broad generalizations when you're talking about a very specific and vocal minority of players.
I'm nost sure if I'm in a different WoW game but this hasn't been my experience. Pretty much anything you do and your worth in the game is dependent on your gear score. If you are not decked out in purples you might as well sit at the back of the bus. This game is really bad. I had all chat turned off except for guild chat. Yet you go into a pug and it is 50/50 if you will get a group of assholes. I had a group try to torment me into leaving because my warlock had a mp5 dagger. It was all I could get at the time and was in there for another dagger. Then they stat watched me the whole time telling me I was terrabad, horrible a baddie, go kill my self. I just laughed. It didn't bother me but it was pathetic. They finally kicked me just before the final boss. Wasn't any big deal as I said I laughed at them. That type of experience is cery common in WoW pugs. Yes I did group with my guild 99% of the time but when you pug it is pathetic to see people act like that.
Even though the community there sucks it didn't bother me much. My point is how pathetic and uncivil gamers are and especially WoW gammers.
I don't play WoW any more not because of the community but because I lost interest in it.
The only game I've played that is worse in attitude is Global Agenda. The community there has to be all the rejected banned assholes from WoW.
account canceled and expires on the 28th...I just hate I wasted $80 buying 2 copies of the xpac. I HIGHLY doubt I'll come back to WOW. I just don't find it fun any more. I might play if it were free, but in its current state the game is NOT worth $15 a month sub fee.

lawl what a baddie :D
I was doing extremely well when I quit. I was a bear tank for PvE and within a month of cata I was doing heroics without using CC anymore. In fact I started doing raid heroics just as I quit. I also hit 2300 rating in arenas.
I like the direction they are taking endgame content (e.g. heroics are no longer faceroll) but the middle game content, or that which you do while not raiding, was just getting so boring I couldn't stand it anymore.
World PvP took a turn for the worse once they started buffing the guards in the pvp hot spots. Basically the devs were just saying "We don't want you to world pvp anymore unless you go to one designated zone called Tol Barad." Bleh. Can't gank in faction cities because the guards just rip you apart. Can't gank in neutral towns for the same reason. IMO they may as well just make all servers PvE servers. I only did arena just to get gear for world pvp, so there was not really any reason to do arena anymore. Same thing with BG's which I got really tired of.
Overall the game is just pants now, not for me anymore.
I stopped WoW after we had ulda on farm status and my dk was already on his final tier set items (collected all), then i got bored and i quit -.-
but one thing to note is..during weekdays the guild i was in was very pro, so we raided on nights 2-3 hours. we leave sat/sun for anything we want to do...on sat/sun nights we might clear the rest if we haven't....
i lost interest when they killed lich king/arthas.
Waiting for WoW 2.0 with engine updates/etc...and i mean an actual engine update...not some lame dx11 features /etc lol.
I was on blackrock pvp :)!
for the HORDE!...
lol i still have my warrior who hit HWL pre tbc ^_^...

I started playing this again for a few months earlier this year and returned to my usual casual guild. We were just starting to clear the 10 man dungeons when I once again realised I had a second job farming, grinding and raiding. So I packed the bloody thing in again.
