I have reactivated my WoW account after hearing about Cataclysm. WotLK is a great expansion, if you disregard the fu**ed up pvp and I am having the time of my life. It is time for a graphic overhaul of Kalimdor & Durotar. Cataclysm seems like a solid way to make this fit into the World - I can't wait to see it :)

I hate WOW because I still havn't even gotten a 60! I start playing for a month, get bored, deactivate ym account, then 2 months later, i have the most uncontrollable urge to play it again with a new character, must have 6 lvl 30s and 40s....

World of Warcraft Vanilla 6 million players Burning Crusade 9 million Wrath of the Lich King 12 million Cataclysm 16 million (aprox) Sounds like they're doing fine to me.

@Muffin_Monster2 Destroying the lore? You're an idiot. Because lore progression is destruction in many minds. Also, Diablo three surpassing WoW? I'd like to know where you got these statistics. And yeah, blizzard isn't gonna scrap a game with ~11 mil subscribers, have fun with your life.

Thx Muffin for proving that you lack of every possible business knowledge, and thx again to at the same time talk about how people are retards to play the game and pronounce yourself on the gamelore. You're a true asset to this comment section and plz keep posting it's always fun to read that some low minded kid that only make his opinion from game sites feels sorry for wow players. Now go grab a business book and find out why blizz is not dropping wow ... poor kid.

I just wanna say that anyone who is gonna buy this game or is playing WoW to this day, ur retarded, and i feel srry for u. With this expansion they r completely ruining the Warcraft lore, its extremely disappointing, whats even more disappointing is they r pushing back Diablo 3 till 2011, and on almost EVERY SINGLE GAMING SITE Diablo 3 is greatly surpassing WoW, so imo, Blizzard should just scrap WoW completely

LOTRO is superior to graphics of WoW.but people say that WOW is the MMORPG to go with.LOTRO is great.dont go by gamespots reviews of the game made a few YEARS ago.LOTRO has updated,changed,and had basically turned the game into a 9. something with the addition of moria ,which is just inceredible by itself,and the TON of free updates over the years as opposed to WOW that charges with its updates.And im not talking small updates with LOTRO.Im talking HUGE area maps to the game..Thats whats great about these games.For intstance.The Shire.completely redone.the designers can keep going back over and over to make areas already made better and better.I highly enjoy the LOTRO.any fan of the lotr genre will enjoy its MMORPG.....when i first considered choosing between WOW and LOTRO..the only thing that won me over to LOTRO online was the graphics.Even those have had upgrades over the years.with directx10.....the game is ABSOLUTELY beautiful at high settings.Adventuring alone ALONE,is a joy in itself.Not putting down WOW,after all,ive never played it,but highly recommend LOTRO if ur through with WOW.

WoW..... or as i like to refer to it now after a year and a half of play.... "The carrot on a stick"..... picture this.... you (the WoW player) are the Mount.... Blizz is the rider of that mount (you).... the carrot on the stick is WoW.... every time you do something that you think is really cool ( armor up grades/kill a boss etc.) ..... they ripe it away to make it worth less with a X-pac....i guess they will always have a ride in to town, on the backs of the people to stupid to see what is happening to them... Please WoW player ask your self "Is this game fun enough to be worth $180 a year".... then stop the control they have over you... then we can move on to stop-ing the trilaterale commission, the console on forein relations, the buildiburger group , the illuminati, the federal reserve, and every other group that exerts control over yours and my lives with out you even knowing it.

entiendo a todos pero solo espero que no se trate de vender "cantidad" por "calidad". Si mas adelante agregan a los murlocs para la horda y a los hombres morsa de Northrend como nuevas razas, me habre dado cuenta que Blizzard llego a una "pared" en WoW. y deben de pensarlo de otra manera.

"though this realy looks awesome" hehe - rofl. this graphics is really not state of the art - and it really doesnt look awesome. ever seen other mmorpgs? but what should they do - they cant break change to actual graphic-standards because of the original graphics - they would loose lots of players

@jmaxdeathscythe are they raising the amount of money we need to pay every month? they dont need that much money! they got to much!

Kingvar

kinda funny that they announce this patch before even releasing "The Lich King"... though this realy looks awesome

$15 may seem a little steep, and I'll agree, I don't ENJOY paying it. But when you think about the fact that this will be the third expansion coming out at a biannual pace, and that they update the game weekly, they have a decent number of people constantly monitoring this game. Someone's gotta get paid and someone higher up has to make money

I think the ideas blizzard has been spawning most recently have been less than satisfactory, at least in my on little world. I believe that the other three WoW titles were perfectly fine, but this cataclysm "thing" seems too much for me, what if I like the old azeroth? Goblins and Worgens as playable races!?! Gay...Deathwing? Sweet. But, it seems that blizzard has run dry with ideas to keep the WoW audience satiated, so now they must turn to exotic ideas that may not be the best for their industry. But these are all my own speculations.

ace070590 If you liked the game keep in mind that you have to get the first two expansions and the original game if you want to play this one.

You know, I've never purchased WOW, but I recently tried the 10-day trial and I must say that I did enjoy the game a lot... and after seeing this expansion pack the game keeps on sparking my curiosity. I am just confused, however, on why exactly you have to pay $15 a month to play this game . . . I know Blizzard is just trying to make money and the game is very intricate, etc, but $15 a month for one game seems a little steep (I am not trying to down the game in any way). As of now, I have Xbox Live ($50 a year) with some good games that have kept me entertained. So I guess you could say that I do want to get WOW, but at the same time, for a more inexpensive price, I am content with my Xbox 360. It is a weird situation but hopefully what I said makes sense...

The music is great don't complain its not like you have a choice on what the ingame music sounds like... you could always mute it and play your own music.
