The patch also includes a boatload of balance changes, UI updates, and graphical improvements.

Like I said. I do not have the the self-control others "claim" to have.

I have also met some amazing people through WoW. So amazing in-fact, that they paid for a round trip cross-continental flight from Vancouver to New Hampshire so we could meet in real life. And it was a fucking shitshow of an amazing week. I love New Hamsphire. A multi split $900us Dollar ticket, an epitaph of a beautiful social gaming community.

FFVI is one of my favorite games of all time. There is a difference between playing FFVI once in awhile and posting about it somewhere, vs having to be online 3-4 times a week for 4+ hours to raid to feel like you've accomplished something in WoW. Fighting a boss for the 40th time. I feel this is an argument I won't win, but I hope you can understand at least where I'm coming from.

Your statement about some trading WoW for another game may hold true for some. But I, hopefully forever, learned from my experience. I'm not spending 4-8 hours a day playing one game just so I can keep up with everyone else, anymore. I still would have met the people I mentioned through my best-friend, as he would have continued playing WoW despite me not being there and introduced me later. I would have have developed the exact same relationships whether or not I had ever played WoW.

Your throwing one addiction for another. if you really want to quit you need to stop playing games altogether and don't ever post on here about it again.
If your addicted to the game, yea it's usally a bad thing. But over the years i've spent a lot of time in game. I met a lot of cool people and talk with a lot after years, even went and met up with a few in person. If I hadn't been playing wow I'd have just been playing some other single player game and never met these people or had the fond memories of it. Even now I don't do the hardcore raiding I used to, but still log in and chat and have fun exploring the world and things that change. All you people talk about "freeing" yourself from WOW but then go and play other games instead just need to keep it to yourself. Some people know how to moderate their playing of a game to enjoy it and still go do lots of other things.
