Honestly, there's a huge amount of problems. First and foremost, the game is almost 9 years old. All of the content from past expansions is dead. Everyone has played through it hundreds of times, and whereas 85 out of the 90 levels is old content, the game has grown dull for the most part. The community as a whole changed drastically during Cataclysm. The majority of the people who play now are just !@#$%^&s. I remember playing during WotLK, and even if I asked the most stupid and obvious question, trade chat would blow up with kindhearted answers. Now, it's nothing but insults and trolls. It's really a drag. What's more, LFR is dreadful. Having a once-a-week chance to get some gear, if it even drops, against 24 other people, who are different each week, it's the biggest pain in the ass ever. It should work just like DF, where you can do it over and over again and be eligible for loot each time. The amount of dailies that are required for rep and gear is atrocious. The graphics are outdated. The cost of Character/Guild Services is extremely expensive. Adding levels to guilds ruined that experience for me, because now people just want a level 25 guild, nothing else matters... Killed the chance for smaller guilds to thrive.Some changes that would be nice:-Refurbished graphics/animations-Either free Character/Guild services, or a limited weekly amount of free services.-Removal of name restrictions. Names should be restricted to Accounts, not servers, using our BattleTag ID.-Cross Server trading of Heirlooms.-All races should be able to play any class.-All hairstyles should be available to all races. What is limiting a race from styling their hair a certain way?-Along with that, deeper character customization: Height & Weight, Eye color, scars & tattoos, first and last names (like every NPC in the game...), etc...-Faction selection for all races, just like the Pandaren. Maybe I want to roleplay a Blood Elf that defects from the Horde and joins the Alliance, or a Worgen that has a darkside and wants to aid the Horde instead.-Gathering Professions should be Secondary Professions, and we should be able to master 2 Primary Professions (without sacrificing the skills to gather what we need).-Removal of guild levels, or a change to how they affect the guild. Perks should be awarded individually to each member based off their rep with the guild, that way, someone who has just joined a guild wont get the perks until they have worked towards the guild and proven themselves.-Individual Class Specializations for both PvE and PvP, so that people will quit ^&*!@ing about something that works perfectly fine in PvE being overpowered in PvP...I could probably think of more, but that's all I got at the moment!

Yea Wow is certainly near its Deathbed. Might even become a Free game in a online Vault, who knows. I played when Wrath was starting around 3 or 4 years ago. I don't remember the "good" days of wow. I just recall Wrath being the best, I was pretty disappointed with Catta as it just did't feel fresh like Wrath, and I loved MoP until the you hit 90 an theres very little to do. Really, if there was one thing I think Blzzard should do is start there program team an create new instances. Thats one thing they did't do so great in Mop. There was very few instances in Mop as good as the one they had I feel they could f done better. most expansions have over 12 Instances an this mer 9 Dungys is not even close much compared to Classic an BC, another thing they outa do with the whole Phase thing is start upping old zones. All they gota do is set the mobs a higher level, add a few quests an bingo you get something to do in a Area you might of skipd in your leveling days. I mean they put strangely placed high levels in like level 30 zones an such, I loved how they brought 85 stuff into Strangle thorn, but to my disappointment that did't last long. My complain is that Blizz needs to stop dalies an find a way for the high levels to do something that not grinding. An not battle pet type stuff, I mean stuff that wil catch our eyes, Outdoor pvp events, random events that start up in worlds, more out door raid boss's. Any thing but more dalies. As a few ohers said using 9 lv 90s for rep grinds is not fun, maybe manage it so they all can share rep bars, an yes the Phase issue, I'm not really caring about it, whats the point of choosing a realm when you wil still be seen on another sepreate realm right? It also screws up my 2 seater mounts making that just useles. Wow was considered my favorite game of all time, it passed up even my consol game which i never thought that could happen. But I will stay with Wow till its end if I must but I just want to see improvement not just Lazy add ons. You need to think about your players Blizz an not just about the money. I just don't think Blizz cares as much as they used to, Sometimes I think they might be becoming there own race of Goblins. >.<
Indeed. LFR, Dailies, farming Charms, all this ruined WoW. Before, WoW was all about logging in and having fun - and even hardcore raiders didn't have to invest ALL their time. Now WoW is 90% responsibilities - go do that LFR, go do those dailies, go get those charms... I'm sorry, but I used to be a hardcore raider, have some realm first achievements, but investing 5-6 hours a day in WoW was enough. With all the rep farming and all that bull%^&*, I now have to invest 9 hours + in order to progress properly. I'm sorry Blizzard, but this "log in periodically and do bull&*!@ in exchange for free gear" tactic is not going to work. And LFR. God, how much LFR ruined raiding. I won't even begin.
Alright, tell me how something that is on a completely separate lock keeps people from being able to do pugs? I see groups on Earthen Ring most Saturday nights hunting for T14 instances, and the old 'need heals for Throne of Thunder'. I've been a part of some of those pug groups, and I've watched as they crashed trying to use the LFR tactics in Normals(such as standing in the beam for Tsulong all the time rather then just running through to drop their stacks).
Nope - not interested in telling you, as I'm not a Raider and have no direct experience of it. Go read it for yourself over on the wow forums.Cheers.
So you have no stance then? Beyond what apparently 'hundreds' of a player base made up in the millions say eh?
