Man was I hyped, buying novels half a year before release to learn up about the lore. Getting all my friends motivated to rejoin WoW and firing up the game in August whilst having an absolutely stellar time for months on end.
But then, in the blink of an eye, Blizzard, who had 15 years of foresight to prevent numerous issues, decided ‘what the heck its just Classic’ and allowed a poo show to happen.
At least for me, my momentum got ruined around the middle of phase 2 when Blizzard refused to fix the faction imbalance issues we were experiencing.
Zones were unplayable, 45 min run just to enter BRD, you all know the picture. I loved WPvP in vanilla, I loved WPvP before phase 2 and I love WPvP after BGs were released. But I personally believe Blizzaed underestimated how things would be with the increase in server size during the initial release of phase 2.
I’ve been struggling to get back into the game ever since, logging on each week for a couple of minutes at a time and thinking “eh what’s the point”. I re rolled Horde to try them out, had a blast as I found the community to be better, got to level 17.
For those who haven’t had an issue so far, I’m glad to hear! Keep enjoying the game for those of us who have given up.
It’s sad that I had to write this post, but I feel that it shows the current state of the game for other players
