AFR #303 – Can’t quit you

Okay, fair is fair.  I razzed Blizzard last week about flying in Draenor, so it’s time to turn the joke back on us players.  There’s so much negativity out there for an expansion that hasn’t even come out yet (including me– guilty as charged), and we should probably all just lighten up.

The worst, though, is the predictable cadre of people mouthing off all over the internet about how this development or that change is the thing that is going to make them quit the game, cancel their subscription, and take their money somewhere else.  Listen, people, if you don’t enjoy the game, then don’t play.  No one expects you to pay for a game that you don’t find fun.  That’s it.  But don’t expect the rest of us to care and don’t expect your repeated protestations on fansites for a game you supposedly no longer play to make any kind of difference.  Blizzard is not your high school girlfriend/boyfriend: throwing a tantrum and threatening to leave isn’t going to make them change.


  1. Playing in the Beta, it’s pretty outstanding so far! I’ve found only minor bugs that have already been reported. As for the capitols being on Ashran Island not a problem for me as I have 2 hearthstones 1. Is my regular HS that takes me to SW 2. My garrison HS which takes me to my garrison, now if they keep it that way when WOD goes live I could care less about the Capitol being on Ashran (Besides the Capitol on Ashran is still non-PVP).

    • That all sounds really promising. 🙂

  2. I admittedly take pot shots at the writers on the forums, but there is a great deal more to enjoy in the game than just the story. There isn’t a character I loathe more than Thrall, so the whole mess with him running in to save the day when my allegedly inept character gets stunned by Garrosh is vexing. Still, mechanically, I really enjoy playing the game. Beyond that, some of the folks I’ve raided with in the past have been coming back to the game, so there are nostalgic prospects for raiding again.

    • Sounds like the future is looking bright for you.

  3. I’ve never understood the point of the flounce, anyway. If you’re going to leave, leave, and don’t let the door hit you in the ass. If you’re not, FFS stop saying you are!

    • Agreed. No one should be playing a game they don’t enjoy, but if you’re going, just go. Find another game you’d rather play and enjoy it. We’ll be happy for you. But nobody is impressed by you making a fuss about it.

  4. I’m not too likely to move to another game. Firstly, my refusal to ever again use a Microsoft product sadly limits my choices. If I ever get free of WoW the last thing I’m even going to THINK of doing is look for a new MMORPG. Besides, if its not Forsaken, its CRAP!

    • Hey, whatever your reasons, man, we’re not judging here. 🙂
