This Is Why I'm Okay With Not Playing the Beta

Tuesday, April 10, 2012


Personally, I really loved Cataclysm. A lot of people complained about it, but I had a lot of fun with it. But then again, I spent most of the expansion leveling Alts, not raiding. I went from having 2 80s and a 70 something to having 6 85s. I had 5 characters now I have 10. And I've done a bunch of different stuff from all corners of the world. I tried to hit every Horde zone and do everything, in different orders, as different classes. I've enjoyed myself.

I guess I see where people are coming from. How much fun would hanging around as max level be? I don't know. I'm not really into raiding. I don't have the schedule to do it. Plus, that would make me a huge nerd. I almost wish I was a huge nerd....sadly though, I'm not. I'm not sure there was a terribly large amount of things to do at max level. I really dig it now, but that's because they introduced raid finder and transmogging.

They introduced some really great features in Cata. Raid finder, Transmogging, and other stuff (that I may attempt to think of later) have really created a different game. I know that lots of people are quitting because it's different. However, I would respond and say that the game needed to change. If a game stays static and doesn't innovate, it gets abandoned and eventually it shuts down. Innovation is required for a game to continue to be good. Don't slam Blizzard for doing that.

What’s especially funny to me is that when Mists releases, there will people being like “Man I liked it more in Cata when …….”. No matter what, people will always be nostalgic for a time, if it sucks. Rose tinted goggles, yo.
