well not everyone wants to PVE. I bought this game for a freaking war and have yet to see it since the old days of 2 full raid groups raping main cities. I'm just COMPLETELY disappointed in the path the WOW devs have taken with pretty much every aspect of the game.

I agree completely. The arena system and resilence was what turned me off of WOW the most. I also got bored with it though, as they added armor sets they never really changed anything in the actual PVP content. The PVE content in TBC was bad in my opinion too. It wasn't as strategically laid out as MC, AQ etc.. not to mention the time consumption that a lot of us just don't have anymore. And don't get me started on dailies and farming gold just to get a faster flying mount. I just started playing AOC and it is great so far. If they continue to improve it I will stick with it.

Left wow in beginning of july, took 4 friends with me. All of us went to Lotro. All of us think Lotro is the much better game.

Wow had its days pre BC.

PVP/Arena killed wow for all of us.
The community killed wow for us
The destruction of the paladin from 1.9 forward ruined wow for me.

Goodbye wow. You had many chances to keep your player base. But they are leaving and leaving fast and all the ones i know that left aint comin back expansion and all.

I've tried to go to Lotro a few times but never could get into it. Maybe it's because nobody I know plays it.

After reading up a lot more on the xpac I have decided I will def be getting it.
mainly because I have tried several other MMO's and NONE of them even came CLOSE to wow for me.
So..I have 3 70's and Im still having fun with them...come WOTLK I will have 10 more levels with each of them and a whole lotta fun in the new content hopefully.

I will still however be getting Warhammer aswell.....although i know someone who is playing Beta, and so far....hes not as impressed as he thought he would be.

So...time will tell I guess.

I love WoW. I wish I had more time to play it.

Have tried LOTRO a few times to. It's a great game, just something is missing and it doesn't quite suck me in.

Arena was a very important addition to the game. No MMO can survive off PvE alone, there will always be a potential player base that wants to focus on PvP. Arena brought in a "Fair" system that was still gear dependent, but removed external factors like potions and number differences.

What? Paladins are in check? Wow, that sucks. Sorry you're not vastly overpowered healers anymore. But have you looked at Ret or Prot? THEY'RE VIABLE NOW! Unlike original WoW. Paladin healers still play an improtant role as the primary MT healers, they're still the most efficient.

Hell, run Hyjal without a Prot pally. Its not nearly as brain dead easy.

WoW Player base continues to rise. Granted War still hasn't launced, but even if they take a million players, WoW would still be top of the crop. Its a giant.

Sh*t you don't even need two full raids. My server is relatively low pop and merely bringing a 20 man raid into darnassus causes the server to crash every time.

I dunno I still laugh at ret paladins who ask to be on my arena teams, and I don't think I've ever brought a ret paladin to a pve raid; their dps just sucks. Honestly I've never seen anything good come from that spec; easily the most worthless in the game.

I get some paladins who try to argue "well ret does good in 3v3 in 1900+" sorry I just haven't seen it. In my battlegroup there is only one ret paladin in the top 40 teams. I don't care how much damage you can do and how much armor you have, if your only forms of cc are short duration and have horribly long cooldowns and you can't apply any kind of healing debuff you're pretty much worthless, especially given that once you run out of mana your dps really takes a dump. There's a good reason why this spec is known as retardin.

Now prot and holy? That is a different thing entirely. I love bringing prot paladins to raids, and holy paladins can be used for everything pve and pvp.

I think protection pallies can do as much damage from their protection spells as ret pallies. Every time you hit a protection pally you get hurt.

Good lord how long has it been since you've played WoW?

Ret Pallies are doing some pretty respectable damage these days and in Wrath they're going to be a full-fledged DPS class complete with crowd control for instances.
