I thought I’d enlighten you all with a bit of our native Midland dialect in the title. Hope you all enjoyed it 😉
The primary reason for this post, unfortunately, is to announce that we have unsubbed from World of Warcraft for the time being.
You may have read a few posts back that we, especially I (Mrs B), have been really bored with the content left available to me. I have achieved *most* of what I am able as a solo casual player with limited time for play. I even ventured into much-hated PvP in a desperate attempt at re-lighting the beacon of interest, but it just didn’t happen.
As with any game, especially one that you pay a subscription for, value for money is a huge factor, and paying £18/month for a game you are logging into once a week for an hour of challenge modes just seems like a tragic waste. It was mainly this factor that played the most important part in our decision.
Don’t misunderstand us, we are not unhappy with the service Blizzard provide, but just bored and need an extended break. We WILL be back, definitely before Warlords, and most certainly be very excited for the new content. We still love you, Blizzard, but with few lines of progression left available to us as casual players, we have to draw the line somewhere.
It does make us sad that we hear of many people going down the same route. It also makes us a little cross (for want of a better word – we aren’t really cross people!), that Blizzard implies it will get content out quicker then makes no more utterances about this over the 6 months following. It seems like recently, the company has been drip feeding the community information – Artcraft, blog updates etc – to keep the public at bay. But is it really working? We think not.
Yes, we all want a quality product, and yes, we all want value for money. What we don’t want is coining of a catchphrase (yes, looking at YOU “Soon TM”) which is then used to fob off the public and a year between any content release. There is a fine balance which I think most of us could argue just has not been reached. Moar communication please, Blizz!
As for the blog, we’re a bit uncertain about what to do – should we blog about the other games we play, would people be interested to read that? Or, just start it back up when we return for the Warlords pre-expansion hype? Let us know!
