I do so grinding out 20 more levels, and having all my hard-earned epics turned into trash and replaced by greens so I can do it all over again. Oh can we have new reputations so i can grind those out too? Maybe only by quests so I have absolutely no freedom in playstyle and it's all exactly pre-scripted for me so you know it will take exactly 32.4 hours. Thanks, here's my 50$..

Truly we can see that here at Pipedot, we are all great MMO fans. :p

I don't even consider MMOs to be video games, to be honest. Where's the game part? Collecting 40 wolf pelts? "But, the end game is great! Raiding is so fun!", they say. Wel if the end game is so much greater than the beginning, why didn't the make the whole thing the end game and removed the mindnumbingly boring grinding part? Cause they need subscriptions is the obvious answer, but that doesn't make the experience more fun for the player.

The only mmo-ish game I enjoyed was Guild Wars 1. Every single story mission was basically an instanced raid. They followed my advice and it really paid off. Too bad the sequel regressed so much...

Honestly it was better at level 60...Even good at level 60. The next expansion brought the 'no child left behind' act to wow where everyone is covered in epics..even Terrible people. Even people that can only play 1 hour/week. The entire concept that everyone can be awesome(or even average) is flawed by definition... Half of people are below average, on average..

I don't engage much in games where you can grind an advantage. You'd have half of people be below average too if the most important determinant of success was skill, not time spent playing. Guild Wars 1 got you to perfect stats end game gear very quickly. After that it was your skill, build choices and teamwork that got you further.
