Op/Ed: World of Warcraft Expansion and Change

Posted Tue, Jan 29, 2008 by Shayalyn

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes! (Or Not!)

This week Byron "Messiah" Mudry takes a look atthe rate of change in the World of Warcraft. Since the Burning Crusade has been out for a little over a year and no date has been set for the Wrath of the Lich King (WotLK), are players still okay with the rate of change? How is the rate of change viewed, and is there is enough to keep players happy and playing?

While the game changes, it does so either based on class in the forms of updates or in the form of raids for high level guilds. Lately Blizzard  has also started updates in the way of PvP rewards. However many of  these mean very little to the average player, who either never sees a  raid. Even to raiding players, most have never seen all the raids, since there are very few guilds capable of running them. This means that most  new content is focused on a very small groups need for progress. While this is important so that there is an elite group that all players aspire to, it is also equally important for the normal player to have  new things to do. For many this could be solved by new instances and new daily type quests on a more regular basis.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
