/shocked!

Ok NDA has been lifted…and i will admit I had a moment of girly nerdiness glee. /shoves it back into its jail.

Some interesting things out there…but WHY are they releasing it so early, the NDA that is? This is the closed beta, more then likely a lot of things will be changed. So why are they revealing thing now?

1.) To get our hopes up and RUTHLESSLY crush our souls/hearts with their digital porn clips of zone, skills, and /emotes!

2.) See above – with all this “teasing” are they trying to keep people interested in WoW. This is very feasible. I can see many people getting bored with the current content. Furthermore, with the shortness the RS is, that is not going to keep the extremely bored paying for their WoW SUBS.

3.) Could Blizzard be worried about other MMO’s coming out? I feel that Blizzard did when WAR 1st hit the scene. With FF14 out in December, TERA, and SW:TOR out in early 2011, could they feel some of their territory will be taken? Possibly. SE has a proven record with FFXI, and shit Bioware makes one hell of a game. Both games and even TERA had a lot of people looking at them at E3.

4.) Also WoW is quite an old game now. It is great that it catered to the masses, hence its greatest strength and its greatest crutch. So many people who HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO PLAY IN A GROUP IT IS SO AMAZING THAT I CONSTANLY FACEPALM EVERYDAY. It is TOO EASY to get a toon to 80 and “HEY GUYS CAN I READZ WIF U 4 EPICZ?” But its simplicity allowed casual gamers to get into the MMO genre and made MMO’s more visible to the greater audience. But come on….graphics need changed and all great things need to end. Hence once again – they are trying to shake up Azeroth and give it, in my opinion, a more raw feel, Get back to that animosity between Alliance and Horde, also even between the factions contained with in each side.

5.) They lifted the NDA early…cause they are genuinle NICE people and want to make us happy…..yeah i laughed when I wrote #5.

Some of the teases it did like.

1.) WORGEN MODEL FOR DRUID!!! One thing i did not like was…why why….worgen cat form? Makes no sense to me…why not let them just shift into a WOLF…you know cause that would make sense….

2.) Troll and Dwarf locks….pretty f’ing sweet imo.

3.) Mohawks on Cats and Bears for trolls….looks sweet but hurt da eyes….they BURN!!!

4.) LMAO BLUE and GREEN items with a higher ilvl then current epics…wait…that makes me sad in da pants…

5.) Tauren and Space goat mounts…for their paladins….loooks cool. Elekk and Kodo paladin mounts = win!
(and no my pally with me Belf4lyfe!)

6.) PW: Barrier

What I wish they would put in Cata.

1.) Worgen Paladins…yeah…HAWT!

2.) That GM’s would actually do something about people constantly talking in trade about stupid stuff….yeah i know turn it off…..but come on….people talk about stuff that no self respecting human being talk about etc…..some people should not be allowed to breed I swear. /grumble.

3.) Maybe a new class but not heroic.

4.) Food actually being useful….fish feasts…getting old.

    You are aware that there is a ton of stat food out there besides fish feasts right?

    • July 2, 2010 at 3:37 pm | #4

      I know there is, but seems like not a lot of people dont use them it seems

      • July 2, 2010 at 3:39 pm | #5

        because fish feasts are usually easily available.

        if they werent then people would actually level up cooking and get the other stat food

                  eh its a classic responce to a cooking issue. Anytime cooking is brought up, Tis natural for men to use that line. Its cliche but hey it is mandatory responce.
