World of Warcraft Patched

The World of Warcraft Patch Notes show that version 4.0.3 is now live in World of Warcraft, offering "The Shattering of Azeroth," in preparation for the upcoming Cataclysm expansion for Blizzard's MMORPG. The patch also includes a boatload of balance changes, UI updates, and graphical improvements.

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.

I dislike many aspects of MMOs like WoW but I can appreciate the social opportunities they offer. Not that useful if you're still young but as you get older it gets harder to meet people and you'll find yourself growing apart from older friends just due to the realities of life. After college a lot of your social circle tend to split pretty quickly due to marriage, careers and whatnot but after a few years of WoW I had basically replaced a lot of the losses with new friends, many of them local.

I play WoW hardcore casual. I don't devote all my free time to it, I still have fun, and I have decent gear. That said, I really only PvP. Running the same dungeon over and over again hoping for a drop is not my idea of fun.

I found the PvP to have balance problems too often to really be enjoyable. I always felt like I was being pushed towards certain builds to be competitive but that was a few years ago, maybe they've improved it since.

I dont know how people even play WoW in moderation, as it is a game that is specifically designed as a time sink and 99% of the high-level content REQUIRES that you spend a significant ammount of time every day to even see this content.

I'm sure there is a large number of people who can do this but I suspect most of them aren't really the core gamer type to begin with. I'm also sure there's a fair number of people who claim that they can keep a decent balance but don't really know what that means. Put another way, I've seen very few people who are strong enough to admit they play far too often than they should and no one wants to be seen as a "loser" or something. So of course forums are going to be filled with people claiming that they have found the uber balance with the game, their 100k job, 1000 friends, trophy fashion model wife and BMW
