World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

The other blizzard topics are toxic as hell. Keep your blizzard hate out of this thread.

Who is playing? I know I am. I have some people's battle tags from here on E. I doubt there will ever be an E guild, but you don't really need it anymore with the ability to group with your friends and hop onto their servers.

You can group across servers?

Yea, (same faction/region - Can't group with someone from the AUS/Latin america cluster, etc)

Cerigo and I grouped up the other day and did a old school raid run for his BWL shoulders and so I could get Astral Walker title on my shaman.

Yup, I play.
Heck, I was at BlizzCon last weekend. It was too hot, there was too much walking, and I had a really good time. ^.^


They've mashed a bunch of servers together, as well as allowed for cross-realm grouping, to help balance out the numbers on low-pop servers and do other things that make questing more interesting. Or more frustrating, if you were counting on no competition. ^^;

I'm "lucky", my sleep schedule is naturally from 4-5am to 1-2p lately. So staying up to experience launch-hour hilarity won't even be a problem for me.

I've been playing as well, off and on. I really like most of what they've done with it so far.

Yeah, I'm extremely impressed so far. I've got some concerns about longevity, but overall nothing but positive experiences in the game itself.

The gameplay's been very choppy and bumpy, but that's expected for any new Xpac launch, and they've also been fending off a pretty severe DDoS attack on the servers, so I won't give Blizzard all the blame for being unprepared.

Aye. It's been a bit rough. But as you said, part of it is to be expected, and the other part of it really isn't Blizz's fault. I don't really worry about WoW's future much, Metzen said they have at least 6 mor xpacs planned and though the sub base has fallen a bit since it's height it's still far and above the most played MMORPG out there. They've done amazing things with squeezing better graphics out of a 10 year old engine.

They've got a bug, and reduced server population caps to stop tripping it, Sin.
Queue's about 4000 strong for me, and ... yah. My morning is good enough, methinks. ^^;

I'm inclined not to worry too much - I've got enough else to do.

There are a few things that have confused me a little with the xpac, namely how quest rewards and followers randomly get better quality. Also levelling black smithing looks crazy with how much I need to farm... And how little nodes give. I'm lucky to get 2 ore and stones a node!

I think those numbers assume you're using your garrison mine. That provides a significant quantity of ore each day.

Would play if it was possible. As it stand, all my characters are locked behind a 3 hour queue. :/ Got 5 hours of playtime in over three days.

I joined the queue at around 4PM. At 7PM I got disconnected, and moved to the back of the queue. Woo!

Still haven't got more than 3 hours of play time... And that three hours was with at least 20 second delay because of server lag.  Cata and pandas was not this bad.

I played all the expansion releases except Mists, and none of them were this bad.

I did get to try out the new content today. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly Blizzard let you go through the boring introduction scenes, so that's good. I'm not sure how I feel about it overall, or if I'll keep playing ... but I sort of got conned into signing up for raiding and challenge mode later on by one of my friends, so I may have to.

Maybe it's just my server, but I haven't really had any queue issues. I hear others talking about it but havn't had it happen to me yet, go figure.

Been in and out of it all weekend. I managed to get my mage to level 100. Positive experiences so far for the most part, launch day bumps excluded. I'm very near testing heroic dungeons. Hoping they'll provide a decent challenge. Cheers all! Gonna level my paladin next.

Been playing it quite a bit, on Earthen Ring I love it. On Argent dawn I find it a messy piece of crap. 3 hours of que, disconnected. Repeat.

I resubscribed to check out the new expansion. I only play very casually though and not all that often. On 93 and pretty close to 94. Argent Dawn was a bit dire at first but the past couple days has been fine. I'm totally obsessed with my little fort though and never want to leave >.> But I need more followers!

The garrisons are quite nice. I find myself really enjoying it. I think blizz will wish they hadn't made it so self sufficient though. I can see them complaining in a few months that not enough ppl are in the cities and the world doesnt feel populated enough.

As long as there are RPers in the cities, I doubt that'll be a problem.

RP in a garrison is a bit ... well, complicated. Doable. But complicated. ^^;
