Yet the game doesn't appeal to me at all... Never understood the point of the game and that it looks worse than Battlefield 2 lol.Quote

It's an MMO. If that's not your thing then of course it won't appeal to you. They shoot for low requirements on all of their games to support the broadest player base.

At high resolutions with everything maxed the game does look decent, but still leaves something to be desired. I think the WoW style Blizzard has used for the game has aged well, but I'd love to see something from them that pushes the envelope in the graphics department. Then again there are people in my raid group who can barely run what the game is now on low settings. In an MMO, player population is more important than eye candy.Quote

The added eye candy isn't that interesting to me, just glad to see they are constantly tweaking/refining their game engine.Quote

I thought you didn't play anymore Dice? I have Mists of Pandaria Collectors box didn't bother with WOD just bought the expansion I hung Tolemac's mages robes up at the beginning of this year after 4 years of being an Officer and Raid leader in Big Guilds. The game has changed so much and lets face it you can literally not be in a guild and still raid as you can do this cross realm now. I'm not too sure if I will ever go back to WOW. If I decided to I would possibly realm change from Defias as it's got more and more Toxic
