I had stopped playing diablo 2 a few years ago but recently started playing agian. Iits because a bunch of my friends have been playing warcraft and its got me back in the mood for one of those games. I love diablo 2, its got a great storyline, but compared to what i've seen with warcraft, everything else is alot weaker. Problem with warcraft is i don't want to pay monthly. Well my question is, i've got diablo, so should i be content with that, or is it worth it going with wow

I'm play WoW regularly, and have also played Diablo 2 in the past. The monthly fee is well worth it, the fun and regular content patches pay it back. Don't get too addicted though.

Meh, I don't like WoW.. reasons:

1) So you want help to kill a said monster, fine and dandy but normal responses are from people:

You have to be in our clan first.
I'll help as long as I get all the loot.
We don't help noobs.

2) Monthly Fee.. I don't like feeding the new EA.

3) Some heroes are godlike and stupid uberly ridiculous items are unfair, and both will trump you. It really doesn't seem like you can kill anyone else if your hero is underpowered as most Blizzard RPG's are like, same goes for their MMORPG. Whats the fun in killing just monsters and low level characters?

4) So whats this Burning Crusade? I take it this is just like another money making scam from E..*cough* Blizzard by getting people to switch and making billions more in dollars.

5) Servers are always dead with Blizzard.

6) Warcraft gives bad names to other fantasy stuff, now people will associate 'fantasy' with Warcraft. Warhammer for example was ripped for being identical to Warcraft, but guess what? it came before Warcraft and ripped them. Guess it's another thing to go with the Space Marine/Terran Marine lookalike competitions.

7) I hate Blizzard.

8) What happens when I reach the highest levels of levels? Theres nothing more to it after that unless you like role-playing, and role-playing in Warcraft is just.. urgh.

9) I hate Blizzard.

10) Stupid lame adverts saying 'JOIN 7!!! MILLION PEOPLE' we know already.

11) Half naked elves which at one point were all over the Blizzard website and were in the stupid lame advert said above.

12) Blizzard customer support... hello? ..........

1) He said a bunch of his friends are playing already, so he can get all the help he needs. Also, I don't know which server you played on, but it's very easy to get the help you need by asking around on mine.

2) Monthly fee is something you wont escape for MMORPG's the size of WoW. New additions, new servers, free updated content anyone?

3) The current hassle to get into 40-man raids to take down the strongest bosses and get the best items will be alot less annoying in the Burning Crusade, since you can set dungeon difficulty (at the cost of item quality of course) and the maximum number of people in a dungeon raid is reduced to 25.

4) In fact, the Burning Crusade delivers a lot of new content beyond level 60, which means your 8th argument doesn't exist anymore. Sure, you have to pay a few dollars for the expansion, but this does bring you a raise in level cap, new races and dungeons, new areas, new items, new professions, new outdoor challenges and more PvP diversity.

5) Simply not true, my server is bustling with activity on both the Alliance and Horde side. If you choose to play in a low-populated server, that's up to you.

6) Bad name? Association is not a bad thing. In your argument, Tolkien gives a bad name to all modern day fantasy worlds because they took parts from it. I admit, Warcraft is not the most original world out there, but it works well enough for the game.

7) Apparantly.

8) When you reach level 60, a whole set of dungeons and raid-instances is opened for you that give you acces to strong items and other advantages. However, these dungeons are to be entered in raids of 40 people, which can make it tedious and annoying to communicate. Most raiding guilds have effective ways of communication though, and should you wish to join one, all you need to have is a bit of time and teamspeak. I do in fact agree that the WoW endgame could've been alot better. Thank god for the Burning Crusade.

9) Apparantly.

10) Welcome to the rules of advertising. Show off what you have. How else can you get more players?

11) What would you prefer? Half-naked Tauren? Again, it's just advertising. No reason to hate the game for that.

12) Blizzard Customer Support is splendid. Game Masters get back to you in reasonable time, and the forums are full of moderators to answer your questions.

Starcraft ... Ah , the memories.
I'm still playing Wc3: TFT.
About the monthly fee in games : It pretty much has to be there. Though I think , that in the future , games will be free, And I mean FREE . Totaly downloadable from the internet. Not in the near future , but later on.
The gamecompanies won't be able to "fight" against the "pirates".
So instead of that , they'll put commercials (sp) in the games. Not like : You're playing a clanmatch , and when the round's over , a McDonalds commercial plops up.
I ment more like : Posters ingame. Big flashing posters.

I plaw WOW...

Howsabout we get someone to set up a Revora Guild on WoW? I've been thinking about doing that for a while, but I've been waiting for the right time to pounce. And besides... I'd like to know who plays before i go around asking if people would be in for a RevWarcraft Guild. If we get enough people behind the movement, I've been roaming around Ironforge for the past few days and probably in the future (upping my Mining and Engineering), I could set it up pretty quick and then nine other people would have to sign the charter and we'd be good to go.

If you meet me:

Have some courtesy,

Have some sympathy,

And some taste.

Use all your well-learned politesse,

Or I'll lay your soul to waste.

Alliance, Hydraxis Realm, N Am Server, Night Elf Hunter Lvl 12 w/ lvl 12 Nightsaber Stalker pet. I started playing 2 weeks ago for about 1 hour per day.

Anyone here a High-lvl Hunter w/ Engineering skill? I wanna make myself a "Guardian" (that's pretty much a pet but it's a robot...) but I dunno how.

Well the few guardians that engineering will make you aren't exactly tough or anything. Just get the engineering and mining skill and start developing. I do suggest a Beastmaster's talent build for leveling your hunter though.
