Watch yer back!

This is my "Goodbye to World of Warcraft" post*.

Goodbye to the game, and to my blog, goodbye to wowhead (anyone remember thottbot?), WoW forums, guild websites, EJ, druid how-tos, tank how-tos, raid strats, gold-making ideas, tradeskill power leveling lists, leveling guides, wowprogress, wow insider and reading other blogs that are wow-specific. I'd like to specifically thank some of these because they made the game better for me, but I could go on and on. Thanks for reading and for those who commented. *This originally was supposed to be a one-line goodbye.

I've always liked the dwarf npc's "Watch yer back!" so its my choice for goodbye. However when I pair it up with my R.I.P. MS-paint masterpiece I realize it looks like the orc is about to ambush me. I'm not going to change it, it's funnier thinking of it that way.

Watch yer back!

When were these comments made?

"Won't you people ever get tired of running around a world, finding some monster, and hitting it over and over and over again until it dies or it kills you?"

"it is NOT a viable fantasy game, since so few people are actually able to do what they REALLY went there to do: PLAY. Instead, it's hours (or in some cases DAYS) of time spent..."

"I left xxx not just because it was boring, but because of the rude jerks"

"I haven't completely quit the game, but am seriously thinking of doing so."

"I am tired of all the kiddishness that goes on. I am pretty much in the same boat ... I am just tired of the jerks, idiots and morons"

"yup its boring, i keep playing. whatever."

"I think it's a cool place to chat or to smack around mobs, so long as you have some form of fun"

"Just goes to show you that the more simple something is the more simpleminded drones will flock to it !"

"hearing the incesant DING from morons everywhere. we dont CARE ok. and for the folks that say grats… /SMACK you all suck too. go away! lol"

"the expansion after expanison added when lots of broken stuff never gets fixed… and all the nerfs that have been inflicted after they have been in implementation for 6+ months."

"ive been playin fer bout 9 months n all i have to say is that its the best online experience i have ever had!!"

"I spent 1 month playing xxx before i realized it sucked. I kept telling my self once i leveled up it would change, it would be more exciting, There would be a bigger goal then just leveling, but guess what there wasent. "

When were these comments made by various people? Just the other day?

Nope, I found these comments in a forum from 2001.

So obviously they weren't even made about World of Warcraft if you were thinking that.

Nope, these were complaints about Everquest.
