Finally ready to call it quits, realized today after almost 8 years of playing that I just didn't enjoy the game anymore.
MoP ruined this game for people like me, I have a family, and I cannot and WILL not be forced into doing dailies across all my toons or hell even ONE toon in order to progressively gear my characters.
The new loot system for LFR, Sha, etc is completely unbearable, constantly seeing 28g pop up across all my toons gives me ZERO incentive to continue grinding out the casual content I am used to.
And its not like I havent given it time, I leveled nine classes to 90, and going through the same content over and over wasn't so bad, its the point where you get to 90 and you are pigeon holed into grinding dailies over and over or PVP'ing (which I do NOT enjoy). So I canceled today, which is saying alot because I play alot and used to enjoy this game massively.
Some will flame me, blizz will probably close the post, but truth be told, if they don't address these things soon there will be many following suit.
There is definitely legitimacy to your post, and we've been reading a lot of the feedback players have been sharing lately as we evaluate our endgame progression systems. Even as World of Warcraft evolves over each expansion, and as happy as we are with the experience we crafted for Mists of Pandaria, we always know we can do better.
Having said all of that, I'm just not personally sure we can design a game that's going to feel fresh and rife with content every time you login, if the expectation is that the average World of Warcraft player will have nine level-90 characters less than two months after the expansion's release. I really don't mean this as a judgment of how you choose to spend your time, either. But when considering everything you said in your post -- you mention needing time for family and enjoying casual content -- your noted (or implied) play time really sticks out.
Another sticking point is you brought up being forced to either do dailies or PvP. Why? Looking only at progression of character power at 90, do you not want to do scenarios, dungeons, or raids? What pushes you into reputation progression such that you feel you have to do it x9 and burn out on the game?
It's not that people don't want to do instances or scenarios or raids, it's that if you do the instances scenarios and raids you absolutely have to do the dailies to get rep in order to spend those vp s or you lose out. No one wants to spend the time and energy getting a currency that is just going to go to waste because they've not yet completed that really quest rep grind on their 2nd or 18th 90. My computer is near constantly crashing, or I'd have more than one 90 already and be doing raids on one of two of them, and be in the same boat as the OP, and while that isn't going to make me quit, it's going to really put a strain on my love for the game, and I do know quite a few people who have let their account subs lapse because of it.
I'm wholeheartedly concerned about the current state of he game, as it does not seem to be very alt-friendly anymore, quite disappointing not only for myself, but also for nearly everyone I know who plays this game.
