    Hi guys

    Just wondering if the AVF crowd still playing and enjoying WOW?

    I still havent signed up yet as im still playing and losing my life to City of Heroes. I signed up in February for 3 months and thought when WOW came out i would have been fed up with COH and move onto WOW , but not yet.
    However having tried all the char types and now taking ages to lvl up im thinking of moveing on to new challenges and was wondering if WOW has the long term appeal i hope to get.

    Any thoughts and comments appreciated.

    P.S If Doktor Weebil reads this i did see you for a nanusecond for the first time as you flashed past me in IP the other night :rotfl:

    I'm still playing and loving it - up to lvl 33 now.

    Which char are you again - add me to yr friend list and say hello.

    I probably would have waved, but had a pie in each hand at the time.

    :smashin:

    PS - if you get bored of IP and Talos, come to Bricktown and get some laughs with the Prisoners.

    My aura is a lovely electric blue effect - makes me look stylish, so the ladies tell me :cool:

    Give me a shout when you are doing your aura mish, if you want a hand.

    EG

    You on Defiant or Union ?

    If you're on Defiant, keep an eye out for Doktor Weebl, lvl 35 scrapper.

    Mainly hang around Founder's Falls, Dark Astoria or Brickstown. Say hi if you see me sliding around !

    No, I must say I got bored of it before my months trial was up!

    Can't say there's much new in it - same old MMORPG grind. I was in a pretty good guild but even that couldn't keep me playing. Until someone does something really different and more interesting with MMO games I think i'll give them a miss personally.

    If you are pretty new to the genre then i'd recommend it as it will be a lot more fun & refreshing to someone who hasn't played through loads of other very similar games.

    Cheers Gthom3. I only know 1 person who owns the game and he got bored quite quickly as well.
    My only xperience so far with MMO's is City of Heroes and im still enjoying this after 2 months but i see WOW is comeing back in stock again after a months absence so was tempted.

    Yeah, i'm not saying it's a bad game, infact it's very well produced and is the most professionaly produced MMORPG that i've played. For the first couple of weeks I was hooked and really enjoyed it but then it just lost it's appeal for me. If you've not really played this fantasy style MMO before then you will probably enjoy this a lot. If you are a DAoC/EQ veteran then you will probably be impressed initially but will then be left wanting more.

    EDIT: As COH is your only MMO experience then it may be worth a bash for you.

    took a 3 month subscription, reached lvl 60 just under 2 months, and then did instances for about 2 weeks and got bored, 1 month wasted,
    theres just nothing to do at lvl 60 after you get dead bored of instancing and raiding

    I found once I reached lvl 40 I became very bored with doing the same thing over and over. Didn't help that there were no new spells/abilities to learn just more powerful versions of the ones I was already using, endlessly. I've now cancelled my subs. It was fun for a couple of months tho!
