I have never played it but there are so many at work (Fry's) that do and have been trying to get me to start. I just hate the idea of spending $50 then $13 a month or whatever. So I assume you think its worth it too?

I didn't think so either... I trades some xbox games in for credit and decided to try it.. free for 30 days... after seeing the first intro movie... the 12 bucks is worth the support...

I am waiting for World Of Warcraft to come out ..it is suppost to BLOW FF out of the water they also have combat against other players so that will be cool

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

I hated FFXI online. I am back on DAoC, once again. I have a feeling WoW will be a floop just like SWG.

I just bought it the other night. Haven't played much, just wandering around looking stupid but I can see that it's one of those games that will last forever. I like it so far.

-Watcher- no way ....How man games has blizzard come out with and been a flop?

Warcraft 1,2,3
StarCraft
Diablo 1,2

Blizzard has always put out quality games.. WoW is not going to be a flop at all..When SWG was in it APLHA stage people were saying it is going to suck bad...WoW is in its Alpha stage and people are saying it is ready to be put on the shelves now!!

Actual no...Beta sign ups where the first of the month and beta will last 4 - 5 months...and of course it will be buggy it is only in Alpha right now what games isnt at that stage...and Diablo was a different realm from Warcraft and we all see that game is consider to be on of the greats

I beg to differ I am not talking about worlds I am talking about type of game.... I mean look at Command and Conquer they tried the whole first person shooter and it failed horribly...


but all of blizzards games have been the same game play different worlds...


and what ever happened to Ghost???

Sarcraft was in beta for like 2.5yrs before it finally hit full... even then it was patch after patch...

Ghost is still in production as we speak...they have that on the webpage as well.....http://www.blizzard.com/ghost/

and what do you mean about Command and Conquer that was made by Electronic Arts

and hey Starcraft again was one of the best games ever they are still have Tourneys for that game...Japan just had a massive one for it winner took home like 100,00 bucks!!! nuts

omg dude... okay they are made by different companies but they are the same type of game... same idea just different scenerio...

it will be hit and miss..... looks cool... but it will not blow it out of the water because FFXI and Warcraft will be on two different levels....

WoW looks too static. It lacks anything defining in my eyes. I could just play a hero map on WCIII.

You asses aren't on Cerberus!

If you're not too high level, get your ass to my server I'll supply the WorldPass(es).

I hear you can petition a GM to do a wold shift on you, but I dunno what the circumstances have to be, nor do I know if you get to keep your equipment, levels, quests, missions, items, money, etc... But that could be something to look into.

If I wasn't lvl 45 Samurai, with countless quests, Rank 5, and a damn good linkshell we started ... I'd switch. If you're under lvl 30, with no advanced job ... come on over You can get back to that level in no time

And WoW looks retarded. I'm sure gameplay will be fine, but the watercolor cartoony look bothers me. It doesn't LOOK like a Warcraft game. It wouldn't bother me so much, if it wasn't based on Warcraft ... I mean, if you're going to make an MMORPG based on a currently existing franchise ... you should at least attempt to make that MMORPG resemble the franchise.
