Why I am quitting wow for an extended period.

Before the uneducated sheeple masses, (or fear mongering puppet stooges) hit up this thread with their garbage input, I'd just like to say I do not care. You don't rustle me, and you are just wasting your breath. Odds are, I won't even read it.

I am making this thread post because I WANT TO.

Now that that's aside, first and foremost I'd like to say I've been a pretty loyal world of warcraft gamer since about 2004. I fell in love with the game, got addicted, and so on. Sadly the game isn't what it used to be. I mean, its still fun and all, but its the players and community are what ruins it. (the majority of players are this way and probably a majority of the world population too) Allow me to explain, in fact, you don't have a choice, because I am going to explain anyway whether you like it or not, after all you are still reading even if its to flame me, (in which i will not waste time reading).

To do the highest level of competitative pvp, it requires you to either lead or join a rated battleground. Great right!?, after all, our loving creators gave us this wonderful tool to help find people to form raids and do rated battlegrounds. Right? Sort of..

The sad realization and truth of it is that the player base is so toxic, from my vast experience, that it literally is killing the game and drowns out any fun that once existed, to the point in which people no longer actually want to login, which is why I plan to back SOTA on kickstarter and start playing that instead.

In the last year plus of wow, I played a lot and I loved it, but now it isnt the same. I would still go back to doing RBGs, because I like to kill horde, but the negativity and drama still lingers quite heavily, every single time. If I go out of my way to write in the description that negative people will be kicked, it takes an extra hour to form.

In the last year or more I probably was in about 2 groups that was ever pretty cool and fun. One was an astrophysisist leader or scientist leader who was talking about science inbetween queues. Otherwise I am just trying to win an RBG with 9 idiots, who at any given second, will start arguing, trolling, yelling, fighting, or disrupting the raid in one way or another. Or just going against the strat caller and doing their own thing, quite reminiscent of the population of Earth don't you agree?

People also don't listen and they do their own thing ALL the time. It is actually pretty funny. When you question them, they freak out. If you propose a simple why, or a yes or no question, they get all loud and combative, and they cannot answer it.

Sure you could argue that I can hand pick 9 people and form my own premade group. I don't have the time to invest in that though. It's amazing to think a year has passed since the expansion. I got into this game and it felt great to come back. But quickly I realized the people are not going to change, they are still going to be idiots, mean, inconsiderate, not understanding, doing whatever they want, trolling, and ruining the fun and even make people quit the game. I am sure they are proud of that too, because a lot of them hold the griefer stance and proud of that. Now it is important to realize that I know there are some positive people out there who are awesome, most likely ascended into the 5th dimension or higher. But they are not easy to find and play with.

I will miss this game and maybe I will come back briefly or for a while in the expansion, or waiting for that long awaited 'wow2'. But in the mean time there are other options, other games, where I don't have to feel so drowned by everyones drama and negativity and toxicity. Doing yolos isnt the same. Trying to find 10 positive people to do RBGS, who want to have fun and stay clear of drama, is nearly impossible in this day and age, or will take a long while to achieve.

PvP in this game is really fun, the most fun in any game I ever played beside the video games I create and play and test in the astral realm, but after a while one gets burnt out and a break is required. Hopefully the rest of the drama negative fear lovers will wise up, ascend and start treating people right.. Then I could rejoin wow and it would be awesome. But yes there are too many sheep and puppets everywhere..and I wish it would change.

I am gonna run RBGS tonight to get the last of them out of my system. Anyone is welcome to join who is 731 item level+, and if you are not a troll/griefer. Love you all, take care! May the light be with you!
Any post that starts by trying to insult its readers isn't going to be received very well.

Of course, the post condemns the community while you demonstrate facets of the type of person you wish to not play with.
Can I have your stuff?

Sounds like you have control issues, dude.
I am commenting in this post BECAUSE I WANT TOO and you can't stop me! This is now a thread about why the color red is pretty and should be considered for all accents. Red is the new Black. Not Orange, not green, RED.

Viva la RED revolution!

I was not trying to insult anyone. I was IN FACT, insulting all the lower vibrational negative entities that play world of warcraft.

Thank you,but I like the way I started the post more! Yea, pretty much, but I go into more detail if you decide to read the whole thing!

Sorry but I am not giving my gold away this time. Because I probably would just be giving it away to one of the trolls..

Perhaps I'd give it away to some awesome 5th + dimensioner.

You go into more words, but there's not really much more detail.
didn't need the wall of text, let me paraphrase:
"I'm leaving because everyone else is a stupid jerk!" [\thread]

Okay. Are you an English teacher by the way? No I won't go into specific details of player names, what happened, when, where, how. No point. So if this appeases you, I went into more 'Words' Fine.
No one cares why you are quitting... pretty damn arrogant to think that anyone would.

You are going to need to add a TL:DR section. Most of your post is just you rambling on and on to get one or two points out.

Yes you do, otherwise you wouldn't have typed out your manifesto.
