It’s a tricky question of course, because World of Warcraft is what you make it to be – which understandably is different for everyone. Battle for Azeroth has definitely divided the WoW player base like never before. But now that some months has passed since the expansion launched, is it fun for newcomers or returning folks? It is. It’s a subscription only game, so not everyone has $15 a month to burn and you want to keep that in mind. For new players, it’s also daunting to start now, considering the 15 years of content out already. Luckily, if you’re thinking about jumping in and need some convincing, here’s a few words to help. 5. Classic Yet Modern You may have read that above – WoW is indeed 15 years old in 2019. Many, myself included, recently jumped in to expect an aging game. To some extent, a large majority of WoW’s early level content is old. It feels draggy, and it definitely belongs in the 2004-2008 era. There’s no … [Read more...] about Is World of Warcraft Fun To Play Now That Battle For Azeroth Is Progressing?

The cat’s out of the bag as Blizzard has announced that the final two Allied Races are coming to World of Warcraft this month. Players can at least, play as the Kul Tiras Humans and Zandalari Trolls. We’ve spent the last 6 months or so in Azeroth fleshing out the world’s story with the Battle for Azeroth expansion. That’s a much needed precursor which in some way explains why these two races have been delayed for so long, in addition to technical issues. Nevertheless, now that it’s finally here, this are the steps you need to take in order to unlock World of Warcraft’s final Allied Races. Have a Level 110 On The Server You Play Incredibly straightforward. In order to unlock World of Warcraft’s final two Allied Races, you must have a level 110 character. If you’re a current player already at the cap of 120, this is a non issue. If you’re new to the game, then yes this can be a slog. However, keep in mind that certain players based on … [Read more...] about How To Unlock World of Warcraft’s Kul Tirans And Zandalari Trolls In 5 Steps
Last week, MOP’s Justin (friend to man and beast alike) posted his list of MMOs he would recommend people play. It was a pretty good list! It wasn’t the list I would have written, but that’s why we’re separate people and not a single fused mass pulling ourselves along on withered, inhuman appendages. That would cause lots of problems in our respective marriages, for one thing. Also, it’d probably render us ineligible to collect multiple paychecks. One thing I did not ask, however, was why he didn’t include World of Warcraft as a game he would recommend, even though some of our readers wondered it aloud. I would think that the reason for that would be pretty obvious, given that it was a list of Justin’s recommendations. But because I do love being contrary, there’s a good list of reasons why no one, ever, should recommend World of Warcraft as a game to be tried. Under any circumstances. Let’s even make it a nice round dozen … [Read more...] about Perfect Ten: Why no one should recommend World of Warcraft ever
World of Warcraft remains the king, long live the king. WoW is arguably the most popular and genre defining MMORPG of our time. At its height, the game boasted 12 million active subscribing players, and paved the way for all future games in the genre to draw inspiration from, be it game mechanics or world design. While the game no longer boasts that amount of subs, WoW has no plans on dropping its subscription model for buy-to-play or free to play, which many of its competitors have done to stay relevant. Here are the top 5 recent MMO’s or “WoW Killers” that took a shot at dethroning the greatest MMO of them all. Wildstar In 2014, all the hype in the MMORPG universe centered on the launch of Wildstar, a sci-fi fantasy MMO that was dubbed the quintessential WoW killer which will eventually set the new high standard in the genre. Developed by former World of Warcraft developers, the game set out to overthrow WoW, and features a fresh approach to combat and with its … [Read more...] about 5 Modern MMORPGs That Couldn’t Challenge World of Warcraft
This is the full version of entries that have been published in the last week! I just thought it might be nicer to have everything in one huge entry instead of in separate ones (either way: You can find all entries in the category labelled “rift vs. lotro vs. wow” on the right). The topic I wrote some time ago about “Rift vs. LotRO” is still getting readers almost every day. Unfortunately, it is probably not the kind of topic they were looking for. So, since I’ve played both games (at least for a little while), I thought I would make an elaborate posting about those games. I’m also going to throw in World of Warcraft because, apart from playing it as well, the big majority of MMO gamers have played the game or know something about the game, at least. :) (After starting to write this, I realised how long this entry would be in the end and decided to split it into different topics to be posted separately. So expect a posting every day for the next few … [Read more...] about Rift vs. LotRO vs. World of Warcraft – a closer look at all three MMOs (all entries in one)
