Still, how long do you think this craze will hold? I have no interest in joining now because it's too late and there are already millions of players who've reached the highest level possible and me doing it would bring me no satisfaction. Maybe there are others who think like me, and won't join, or some players may stop playing after a while. With each expansion pack, Blizzard is unleashing new features, places and whatnot. In the end, however, it's the same old thing which doesn't really appeal after a while. So, any guesses as to when we will be saying, R.I.P.?
QUOTEi got borred and deleted the stupid imaginated, game which there is humans with ears like martians and eyes like cats and other sh*t. biggrin.gif
The game got famous for those "ears" and "eyes" only People want to escape from reality and that is why they get absorbed into fantasy lands like World of Warcraft. There is another famous MMORPG called Tibia, which uses old-generation 3D graphics, and is free to play (although players who pay for subscriptions get additional features). It is also similar to Wow and is a fantasy land filled with all sorts of strange creatures and the players' characters are all funny and weird. It is games like these which turn out to be bigger hits. Half-Life, which is based on real life, is also popular, but it couldn't match the popularity of WoW because it is too realistic
Come to think of it, fantasy and sci-fi games, books, movies, etc have always been the biggest hits in their respective fields. It is the imagination of the developers which makes these things so appealing.Good examples are Star Wars, The Harry Potter series, and of course World of Warcraft! Real-life counterparts of these works never catch up to the amount of success made by the fantasy works. It's undeniable that after sometime these things get boring and repetitive, but the initial excitement is always wonderful. In the case of WoW, it seems a lot of players still have that excitement intact, which is why they're still playing after so many years. Players like Бојан get bored after the initial excitement wears off and there are lot of players who leave the game after sometime. But WoW's fanbase is so large that even if these bored players leave, there will still be millions left playing daily!
I only wonder when all these players would get bored!! Blizzard is promising new content always but that hardly increases the appeal of the game. Now Warcraft 4 is also rumoured to be in the works. Will the Warcraft bandwagon never stop?! If it doesn't, there's no huge loss except loss of time, but if it does stop, I'm sure it is not going to happen anytime soon now.
I remember I used to play Starcraft and thought it will never be boring, but after some years it did same as with Counter strike, but I see that a lot of whom still play Counter Strike, and how old it is?
I think when people grow up, get a job, gets a wife and children, they don't have to much time to play World of Warcraft and if they don't get bored from playing it, usually they don't get a wife
"...Achieving something that no one in theReal world really cares about."
As opposed to all your play-throughs of Warcraft III and any other non-WoW games you play/have played? The world really cares about all you've done in those games, huh?
People play games like WoW to have fun, not to accomplish something grand and amazing in the real world, and you are no different, even if you'd like to pretend you are. Hell, at least WoW players are regularly interacting with real people, which is much better than spending hours playing a single player game, which never seems to get quite the same "loser with no life" reaction that playing WoW does.
"The players who've been playing from day one till today must beWondering what they've achieved in these years. All those hours they spent levelling up and collecting virtual goodiesCould have been used for something more useful."
Do you sit up at night wondering what all those Warcraft III playthrough's have got you? Do you look back on your life at all the game playing, TV/movie watching, and any other "pointless" (insofar as you seem to be defining it) activities you've done and think "I could have been doing something more useful!"? No? Then why would you expect a WoW player to be doing so?
