Honestly, I am constantly in severe emotional pain and the only thing that can take my mind off it is indeed warcraft. Watching movies, listening to music, watching anime, reading mangas, all those things have just become more painful over time and incapable of numbing me down to where I can survive this pain. Even in my sleep I am not safe from it. With world of warcraft I can escape, it's the only option.
>>26290133 I'd agree with you if it was 2004 but WoW is pretty much a solo experience now. Even when you interact with others it doesn't register as human interaction, trust me. The way the game is designed right now, other people might as well be NPCs. You can even get into a mythic guild if you're good, log on TS and be the silent guy, no one will care as long as you don't fuck up. And unless you want to do mythic there is 0 need for you to interact with people, grind some gear, go to the group finder tool, queue up, get invited, do the bosses, gg. Or farm bgs if you do pvp.
>>26290133 It is though because it boils all social interactions down into a very basic form. No body language or facial expressions. Just words and a /dance. Why else are these games so populated by turbo nerds and autismos?
>>26290095 God damn, I feel like I could have typed that myself. My brain chemistry makes life incredibly painful, constant crushing depression, horrible intrusive negative thoughts and intense loneliness. I play video games 24/7 and it helps slightly but sadly I've already like 200 games in the last five years, there's not much else left besides obscure indies (which are great in their own way but I've played so many of them.) Triple-A games are so incredibly generic, it's just saddening. I take kratom all day to cope with my brain. Do you know what could have caused your depression? For me I think either heavy metal toxicity or just poor genetics.
>>26290163 this is a filthy casual wotlk-baby opinion the game died with wrath of the lich king, no, it didn't "with le lich king" it died when the expansion released if you think otherwise you're casual scum with shit opinions, wrath was the expansion that destroyed the game, every aspect of design philosophy and every feauture implemented that has been in detriment to the core warcraft experience which made it the amazing game it was at release started with WRATH
>>26290199 I honestly don't know because I actually have reasons to be like that, my life is pretty shitty and I am severely traumatized from a """relationship""" years ago. So I can't tell if something is wrong with me chemically or whatever, if anything I think I am just the kind of person who is doomed to feel like mud no matter what.
While I agree that Wrath was the beginning of the end, Cataclysm nearly turned it all around. Dungeons were hard again, questing was completely revamped and 85-90 zones were fun, crafting was stable, raids were the best since BC, and a great soundtrack. On release, it was a love song to vanilla. Unfortunately, wrathbabbies whined on the forums and they nerfed it all to shit and never dared to create challenging content again.
>>26290207 Nope I started playing in 2005, and the game died with the addition of LFR. The whole community of needing to band together in guilds to experience content fell apart. WOTLK was stupid, but it was still WoW, it still kept to the basic game model that made it work.
>>26290247 I half agree with you. If anything, what you're saying just reinforces my statement because wotlk didn't just destroy the game it also destroyed the community, hence rendering warcraft beyond saving because after that point even if blizzard was killing to fix it, they wouldn't be allowed. This game quickly went from catering to the lowest common denominator to having a playerbase comprised mostly OF the lowest common denominator.
But for me, no matter cataclysm did it wouldn't be warcraft anymore. The aesthetics of the game changed too much. Sure I appreciate the new graphics too, especially Pandaria, but it's a different feel, it's like comparing sex with your average gf that you love to sex with a 10/10 prostitute. Sure, the latter is enjoyable and mindblowing but at the end of the day the former is a more fulfilling experience. Just look at what happened to Brill. It went from being the iconic forsaken aesthetic to something like Tim Burton backdrops. Is it cool? Sure, but it's not what we fell in love with.
>>26290247 I loved the Cata launch and tier 11. It felt like the game was going in the right direction again, but unfortunately the developers caved to the 13 year olds complaining about difficulty, who wouldn't even stay subscribed when the next Call of Duty game came out.
>>26290267 Nowadays these pics make me sad >Hard to find erpers >Have to casually introduce it into conversation IC-ly on any server other than Goldshire >Tfw you don't know if they know where you want to go with it
Needless to say I'm a virgin and this is the only thing I got but it's such a hassle now since the game is full of normies
>>26290291 oh you mean the basic game model of queuing up for an extremely easy dungeon, teleporting to the instance, clearing the thing in 10 mins without exchanging a single word and being teleported back to the city where you were jumping up in circles? that basic game model? LFR is just LFDMKII, ofc it was a gigantic offense to the game but it was just a continuation of the game the LFG tool in general, CRZ, the quest helper on the map, those are the broader things that destroyed the community and the experience of the game did you know that the actual instructions in the quests have been removed? I was blown away when I realized that after trying to level and alt ironman mode recently. I tried to interpret the quest text in a way that helped me identify my objective and it was simply impossible, it was just flavor text WoW is an rpg where the quests don't actually tell you what to do, because they've replaced all functionality with interfaces
>vanilla WoW >girl in guild whispers me telling me I'm cute >we bond, eventually becomes long distance gf >several months later get kicked out of guild for not socializing enough with other guild members >gf dumped me and did a cam show for my best WoW friend >months passed >went on different servers to try and replicate what had happened, but fix my mistakes >that whisper of "I think you're cute... don't ask where that came from" never returns >quit weeks before TBC released
>>26289375 As someone who's 13/13M, it isn't a solo experience, you can pug the first 5 bosses on mythic easily enough, but before the ring/valor upgrades Gorefiend was actually an aids encounter, even with 20 competent players.
I must admit you could play it solo, farm old raids, visit every zone, complete Loremaster, it has enough entertainment for a solo playstyle for a good few months. And if you can stand solo BGs I guess some more hours into that.
