WoW certainly is a funny beast. I started playing from launch, then switched to Lotro, but every time a new expansion has come out, I've found myself reinstalling it and reactivating my account. I then play it exahaustively day in day out, but it only takes a week away from it, such as our last trip to the UK, to become indifferent once again. I've hardly touched it since and have gone back to Black Ops and my PS3. I still delve in for a half hour or so, but nothing like before.
I keep meaning to get back into Lotro, a beautiful, well thought out game of which I still have my lifetime subscription.
I wish I could get un-addicted. I didn't play it for almost 2 years...got back into it in February and now am obsessed again. If I lived alone I might never come up for air.

My impression is that the game has been nerfed a lot in terms of leveling up...with dual specs, flying in azeroth, xp for herbalism and mining, mounts at 20. Back in my day, we had to walk till we were 40...and there is nothing more fun than walking through Duskwood from one end to the other to turn in a quest.

I don't think that is such a bad thing. I always hated levelling, which is why I only ever a single toon for years. I now have 4 and play all of them intermittently (given the decreased playing time I described above). I think Cataclysm is the best expansion yet, well thought out and the new (old?) areas are very well done. My problem is always limited to raid or not to raid. My guild has 2 raid groups, but I am not really willing to commit myself for a whole evening. I'd rather drop in for an hour or so, maybe complete a heroic or 2, but even that is starting to lose its appeal once again.

Actually I have no complaints about it. It just seems easy...but the game was way too tedious before.

The thing that irks me is that I cant transfer my characters from the US realm to the EU realm. I had two level 70 characters for whom I have to buy a seperate game for and monthly sub.

Guilty as charged

85 troll druid
85 forsaken priest (main)
85 tauren warrior
85 orc death knight
70 forsaken priest (twink)
+ a few lowbies

Not playing any more though.. Managed to put my authenticator on the shelf about a month ago, and it feels pretty good. I started playing just before BC was released, and have been active in game ever since. That's a lot of hours online..

Might go back on at some point, but as I don't really have time to do any proper raiding due to work, it was getting a bit monotonus. The plan is to take a break from MMORPGs for a while and then see.

But once SWTOR is released....
Not sure if even this will be able to break the back of the world wide institution that is WoW, but it certainly looks promising.

Aye, this could be interesting indeed. I played SWG for a bit, but quit before JTL. A few of my previous clan/guildmates are also planning on getting this.

Re: Any Computer gamers here?

Been playing WOW for a good 2 years straight until Cat came out, I just played the 10-day trial but never renew my subscription since.

Yeah, everything has been nerfed, its hard to play the game now if you only have 2 to 3 hours per day. "I am not prepared" anymore, lol.
