To me, it felt like when Blizzard catered to the super casuals. WoW was always a casual game compared to the hardcore MMOs like Everquest and Final Fantasy XI. However, when Blizzard catered to the instant gratification fanbase, the heart of of Vanilla, some of BC, and a bit of WoTLK eventually faded and went away. Sure, the game stayed popular and is still one of the largest fanbase in any MMO, but the game eventually became an empty shell of its former self. I never really felt the same with WoW and rarely play the game. I sometimes go into the new WoW for a month, but I quickly quit.

It happened when you grew older and more jaded with a game you playing for years. Familiarity breeds contempt. The game you remember never existed, but you were young and had a ton of time to ay so it seemed different. Add to that the heavy nostalgia glasses and you end up believing the game you loved lost it's way.

I don't know. I mean, I was 18 years old when I first played it and now I'm 29. It's not like I was a ten year old playing the game and just longing of wanting my childhood back.

It's a witch! Burn it! Away with you and your logical and well thought out response!
