Should I Buy (and Play) World of Warcraft?

post #1 of 80
Thread Starter 
Never played this game before (because you gotta pay monthly), just wondering, is it still worth it? Or is it too late?

How many head-fiers are still actively playing WoW? Any Head-fi guild?

Any reason why should I play it or why Shouldn't I play it?

If you want a life, don't play it. If you want to become overweight/obiese, live an unhealthy lifestyle, lose your life and get addicted to a video game, by all means, buy the game.

And I am guilty of the above, I quit about a year ago though before it got too out of hand. Playing 10 hours a day is serious stuff.

Head-fiers don't have life to begin with anyway.

And according to recent studies, 68.72% of Head-fi suffers from obesity, 11.43% has drinking problem, and 5.6% suffers from occassional diarrhoea problem. 25.4% of Head-fi population also has some sort of problem with posting unuseful posts or stupid polls or problems with both.

But seriously, so are there many Head-fiers still playing WoW?

Maybe I came across the wrogn way or unseriously or something, but I am very serious, this game can destroy your life. If you don't believe me, check WOW forums and google. This game is like a drug.

It's okay if it's addictive, that means it's worth it.

I was one of the mindless, left-clicking, Diablo II (and I) drones. clickclickclickclickclick....click...me want unique item...clickclick....

I'm sorry for posting so much in your thread, but I also played D2 for several years like you, but WOW is in a whole nother level of addictiveness.

Just a suggestion, but after playing WoW after Everquest, I realized that it's pretty much the same old, lame MMORPG. I played Guild Wars and I find it to be quite a bit more entertaining than WoW. I'd check that out personally.

I have WoW and I have already installed it but I haven;t got round to playing it yet. Although guild wars:factions sounds interesting as it a MMORG and it involves no subscriptions, is that right?

I think firstly I'll get WoW and then GW if I'm bored with WoW.

So do I have to install an update version of WoW before I play online, or can I just play right away after installing right out of the box?

Don't do it!!! I played from the start, got addicted and finally quit.

It's not that good, it's just an easy way to escape from the real world by putting huge amounts into something that at the end of the day, will contribute nothing to your life in terms of personal development or even memories.

While in some sense this could be said for all games, it's far worse in Wow because of the huge amounts of time it can take to receive gratification. The game is designed so it comes quick at the start to get you hooked, then it gets harder and just becomes a huge time sink.

hey mocok,
did you know that 35.87% of statistics are pulled fresh from someone's aЯse?

Redshifter: But I only trust your stats 38.4% of time.

Anyway, so how long does it roughly take to level up from 1 to 60?

Anyway, if it's indeed too dangerously addictive, I'll just send the game to Adamcalifornia and hope that it will distract him from making some polls for awhile... see, win win situation.

Mock, it could take somebody to get from 1-60 like myself a complete month in playtime (I had a complete month of playtime and was level 40, but I was making large amounts of gold at the auction house.) By a month, I mean when you check how much gametime you have, it says 30 days, or 720 hours. That means you've been playing for several months probably. I think most people get it in like 10-15 days if they aren't slow though.

So addicting I woke up one day and couldn't take the lust to play anymore.

My brothers getting a free copy with his new laptop, I guess we'll find out how addictive it is if he's willing to pony up the $15 a month after the trial period. I personally don't tempt myself by buying online games, I can't afford to waste the time.

No, no, no, no, and no. I have seen waayyyy to many stories of people's lives getting ruined and witnessed it. It is insane what a video game can do to people. It is basically like the crystal meth of video games.
