Want everything you couldnt get from world of warcraft a few months ago? want easy to get gold? want easy fast mounts? want easy mega armor and weapons? well now you can!!!

since the new major mmo's have came out WOW has turned into a big candy store where everyone gets everything they want for nearly little or no trouble at all. The only way for WOW to survive and keeps its simple customers is give them tons of goodies and shovel content patches out at an alarming rate (they can afford to with the french developers they have).

Although few will see the content only lasting about 3 days worth of "new fuzzies" look, Blizzard france will continue to shove all the yummy goodness they can down the throats of their subs to try and keep them from migrating to the newer, better mmo's.

I agree with you 100%, this is pathetic.

When I started WoW up about a year ago I made a new rogue. Without any help at all I had 90g by 30, and at least 150g+ at level 40 simply through mining and skinning.

Of course, I've long since quit so this doesn't effect me, however...

.. this is just silly. First they make it so that players can get easy epics through the arena, with time. Ok, no big deal there -- it takes forever unless you buy a team.

Next they hand out S1 for honor. Now, I did actually like this change but again it's all about making it easier.

Now they are giving players mounts for less than half of the normal price, and at 30? WTF.


If WoTLK follows this current trend WoW will be dead by the end of it.

if you hate it, quit playing, there's plenty of other good MMO's out there that don't do this, I played wow for a while, it sucks. Runescape has a better plot then wow. If you don't like the direction wow is going dip your feet in the water of some other MMO's. Most of them have free trials on their websites.

you assume too much. i havent played wow in 4 years, 4, countem, and guess what, i dont play any mmo's. though i do dabble in call of duty 4.

i do however have many friends that still play and constantly hear the laments and gripes watching them play, hence my knowledge, hell, my brother even plays the new aoc, i hit his house for dinner once in a while and he even gripes about this one.

life is too great, i am having too much fun being retired and fishing. i will leave the games alone till one comes out worth a spit.

I -wish- they'd bring back the white epic riding raptor for the Trolls. I was literally a week away from getting mine when they removed them from the servers.

That's literally the only thing I really want in WoW anymore.

Yup this is pretty sad, I quit playing after they introduced the Isle of Quel'danas daily quests and got an epic flying mount in less than two weeks of just running around killing crippled mobs 5 feet away from the quest givers (I had some savings but not much, just to specify I didn't go from 0 to 5k gold in 2 weeks).

You know what, though? It works for Blizzard's finances, these are very popular changes and they have no reason to stop going in that direction; to each their own.

I hate getting continual new content. So annoying.

Doesn't everyone already have 15 70's? So why does getting mounts at 30 cause problems?

If you're HARDKORE you aren't playing up another alt. If you're not, this makes the game more fun. If you *are* HARDKORE and you're grinding up an alt, you're only gonna spend a few hours in the 30-40 range anyway, so what's the difference?

The days of "Wow! That guy has a mount! Holy cow!" are long gone. Now it's about encouraging alts, and new people. I don't mind. New content is new content. People will always claim every new MMO is better than WoW, but until WoW's numbers really start to drop, I think they're better at MMO design than we are. ;)
