World of Warcraft stands on the shoulders of giants in the cut throat industry of video games. It peers down every now and then towards its other MMO competitors and has a little giggle. It is well deserved because World of Warcraft is one of the best games ever created.
Just recently blizzard celebrated World of Warcraft’s ten-year anniversary. Which is a huge achievement and lifespan for any MMO on the market. World of Warcraft has gone head to head against all it’s competitors, yeah subscriptions did fall for a while but most players who went astray found them selves running home to WOW.
After reading numerous articles and watching the World of Warcraft documentary ( looking for group) I suddenly found myself reinstalling the game after a four year break .A few weeks later I purchased the Warlords of Dreanor, WOW’s latest expansion that has everyone talking.. and well playing.
I played World of Warcraft four years ago. I wasn’t a “hardcore player”, truth be told I didn’t even do a raid (I hear the gasps of shock already). I just loved the world and possibilities that came along with it. I played what most people call the boring Human Warrior, my skills were basic but it still tugged on my heart-strings every time I logged in. The design in this game is fantastic, the lore is interesting and the players are passionate, that’s what had me willingly pay a monthly subscription in return for more time in this rich, addictive and immersive world.
That was until I hit the brick wall. I became bored, I was constantly dealing with hassle from more experienced players for being a “noob”. I may not have played the game to it’s full extent but I still loved spending time there.
My friends who I played with left the game and it soon became a single player game for me, it was supposed to be the game to bring me to like-minded players. I felt like a small fish in an ocean of busy and more experienced players.
What I want is to get back into it again but to take advantage of everything that is offered to me. I want to play with a great community and do all the things I have missed out on.
So guys any advice or tips?
Is any of you still playing or are you also tempted to get back into Azeroth?
