1.0 out of 5 stars Worst XPack ever helped me quit WOW, May 12, 2011
This review is from: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Expansion Set (Video Game)
This is the Worst Xpack that blizz ever came out with! I have been playing WOW since 2005 and I never thought anything would ever make me quit. I was one of the Biggest WOW fans their ever was. I bought all the books, comics, and collectables. This Xpack is mostly like having a second Job only its less fun. You have to Grind 5 times as hard for items just to be able to raid. there is no new content most of it is revamped old content. The new dificulty level has turned the community against itself making doing anything with out a guild a very painful experiance.

The gear is horible to look at, and there is very few dailies to keep you occupied. The raids are mostly set up for the top eliete whom play the game,leaving the casual player base behind. The blizzard Dev team never listens to the player base, they even removed the suggestions tab from the forums. The things the player base have been asking for for years have been completely ignored. The Avitar models are the same since the game came out in 2004.

The game engine is the same it was in 2004, only the environment in the xpacks are new giving the illusion that the game has improved graphics. If you are a new player too the game you are going to be paying well over $100.00 to get all the xpack including this one for a game made in 2004.

The game is loaded with bugs and most of the original devs working on wow have been transfered to the new Titan MMO blizzard is working on thus making the game even more buggier. The GM`s do not pro actively police the servers allowing people to activly bot and gold farm / mat farm / honor farm for items.

The devs have completely lost touch with the community all the requests that have been asked for by long tearm veterans have been completly over looked such as more charecter slots, updated Avitar models for example.

The 2 main specs Tank and Heals have been designed in a way that makes most players fustrated to the point that they have been either shelved by players or exploited for ingame gold for runs, or the ever so popular its my way or ill boot you from the group attitude. This elietest attitude is a complete turn off for new players due to no one giving the new player a break in a dungeon its either you know what your doing or we will vote kick you.

Blizzard put alot of effort into revamping Azeroth for new players, but anyone over lvl 60 will rarely see it due to LFG que`s never having to leave the city. Not to mention that the dev team has essentially made the community an ANTI new player game. If you are a new player be prepared for a sound tongue lashing from the elitests. If you are lucky they will just vote kick you with out calling you every explitive in the book.

The thing that really agrivates me the most is when they took all of our creativity with our classes and made them all cookie cutter spec's... i mean common Actiblizzion why on earth would you take away every thing that we could call special about our classes. now its like playing tick tack toe with your self. and with pvp or as i call it PVCC there is absolutley no fun in it you are constantly frozen stunned and did i mention frozen.

Shared raid lock outs GASP now you can only chose between a 10 man or a 25 man, they only took away stuff only to take more away. And i want to pay $15.00 a month for this? really Actibliz?

There is no events during the year other then the same old holiday events that have been going on since vanella. The only really fun events are the ones that herald the new xpack that brings a reason to the new xpack. So you are spending time grinding dailys, doing the same dungeons and raids over and over and over again. There is simply no creativity comming from the devs team.

In my opinion Actiblizz is just keeping the lame horse alive long enough to have incomming revenue to fund their Titan MMORPG. there is no way any company would let a major game that millions love go this far down the toilet. Actibliz is their own worst enemy, i will never buy another game from them again.

last but not least if you are a parent avoid buying this game for your children at all costs, the community is the absolute worst cesspool of filth, and depravity that the internet has to offer. There is things that you will see, hear, and read that will make you cringe to the point that you cant beleive that someone would be that awfull. The player base almost goes out of its way to be as discourtious as they can possibly be making one wonder why the hang are they playing a multiplayer game in the first place, unless it is their intention to be there just to be mean to others with no recourse for their actions. there are a few in the game that are nice but most of them are leaving for other games.

All in all I thought that there would have been virtually nothing that would have made me quit WOW I was completly addicted to this game but this xpack was so bad it made me quit cold turkey and I never even felt bad about quiting.

BUYER BE AWARE: this xpack is the worst XPack i have ever seen. Blizzard should be ashamed of themselves for releasing this. They are a wonderful company and I have never seen them release any game this bad!

Excellent review, rated yours as helpful but disagree with just one little detail: Blizzard is NOT a wonderful company in any stretch of one's imagination.

Frankly they could have cared less about loot ninjaing, griefing or blizzard fan bois tarring and feathering players that had constructive feedback. ANd they couldn't care less about our displeasure so long as we keep our subs active.

Yeah, they pretty much said in a forum post recently that there is no such thing as ninjaing, pretty much confirming that they want it to happen and don't really care.

The devs are also pretty damn condescending, they didn't just hire the b team talent wise, but intelligence wise too.

You did a great job summarizing the problems many people had with this xpac. I played WoW practically every day for over 3 years starting in 2007. After this Xpack came out I played it for about the first 3 or 4 months then just couldn't take it anymore. I quite cold turkey and haven't so much as even logged in since.

"This is the Worst Xpack that blizz ever came out with!"

Hold out for the worst: MoP is coming out next year with butterfly eating Kung-Fu pandas as a race to play!

I'm finally had enough of WoW, and Cata is my last expansion bought (because a player class can't be ignored for one). Unless they have expansion only servers, it's the last of WoW for me, too.

1.7+mil subscribers lost in one year, and no signs of the bleed of subscriptions stopping. Ever wonder why???
