hehe, until they bring out big nerf bats and start changing your favourite class abilities and then everyone will start screaming about gameplay changes, then you become very jaded :)

MMORPGs are excellent games, but they do tend to bring out the worst in people eventually. I would really advise though to regulate the time you spend on them, I played Everquest for 18 months fairly hardcore and it does mess up your life, just remember do not substitute the game for real life friends and family. I still managed to keep my social life just, but I knew others that pretty much sacrificed their real life for the virtual and got very hooked up in it :(

My first, and only, online multiplayer game was Unreal Tournament was years ago with my crappy specced PC, and I got owned. I had a go again lastweek now I have a much faster PC and broadband and still got owned. I hate the game now.

Your a lvl 12 already and this is your first foray into MMO's?
Anyone else who's playing WOW just now who also palyed/plays City of Heroes , confirm if this game is easier to play ?
I've spent the best part of 2 weeks on COH and it's taken me this long to get to lvl 19 !
Do you get new powers and abilities every other level in WOW ala COH or is it more difficult to achive new powers in this game hence the quicker lvl upper (new term).?
Been seriously thinking of buying this but not if it's too easy.

Cheers.

PS no offence intended to your gameing skills Dennis , your probably just much better than me :)

Think they are pretty similar in terms of ease of play - I'm lvl 18 in CoH but not played much WoW..just started new char on Zenedar, and got to lvl 6 quite quick.

At the mo, CoH wins for me on a couple of counts

- chat system is far easier to use

- sidekick/exemplar system means I can play with players who are far higher levels and not be wasting my time or theirs. AFAIK, WoW doesn't have this built into it.

CoH might not have the longevity, but this depends on what expansions come out for both games.
