    I'm looking forward to it already :)

    My only request is that this time they release it in NZ on the same day as in the US.

    Yay, I've been wanting to go to Northrend since rumours of the first expansion started leaking out.

    For some reason this makes me want to think that they're nearing completion on SC 2. :cool:

    I sure hope they don't get into the same routine as EQ currently is, ie. a minor expansion every six months that adds almost nothing to the game. Burning Crusade was pushing it by adding very little content for the price.

    I have to agree, I hope they don't let WoW get too fragmented. They should be generating new content to keep the subscriptions flowing in, not worrying about 'expansions' IMHO.

    Huh? BC added 11 new zones and heaps of new instances, and was cheap too. I'm confused.

    Burning Crusade turned me away from WoW. Although this expansion sounds promising, I hope they could add some content that would get casual/people-that-don't-want-to-invest-so-much-time-into-one-game to play it. Getting drops from raids has never worked out for me and every guild I've been with disbands. My friend has been trying to PvP his way to epic which seems to be the best option, although requires a decent investment still.

    Alot of people think that Blizzard should be able to finance these "expansions" in the same way as the normal patches, i.e., through subscription fees. While I think that would be a better way (I pay less :), no fragmentation of playerbase etc.) Blizzard knows it can charge for them and subsequently will.

    A mere ten dollars less than the original retail price of the game is a bit much for an expansion that contains less than a quarter of the content of the original game. I know it's only my opinion, but as much as I love RPGs, these MMOs really seem to lack something for me.

    Ah. I'm not in the US and the pricing was different here, I think BC was 60% of the cost of the original.

    Hi

    "Welcome to Northrend!
    Please collect 15 magic ice":p

    Well it will the same farming cycle, what's the point, it's not even fun anymore,

    level cap to 80

    And 1% of the WOW players haven't ever discovered naxx!
    they put new content witch reqier hardcore raider and to be in it you need good gear(the farming cycle which is why i have stopped playing WoW)

    I hope Warhammer Age of Reckoning life up to the hype.
    It will be more casual friendly.

    My flame of love for WOW has fizzled out. Before I would have been very excited about this news, but all the fetch and deliver quests have left their mark. O and getting reported to a GM for saying Masturbate didn't help much either.

    City of Heroes on the other hand has caught my eye.

    I am looking forward to this expansion. It does get old questing for xp/gold/etc. and raiding endlessly for purples that are outdated 2 levels into the next expansion; but I've been playing Warcraft since the original and I enjoy the story in the games (regardless of how they have to be altered/manipulated every so often). WC3 and WC3 The Frozen Throne were lots of fun for me. Now that game and story are going to be the basis for an expansion.....so I can't wait :)

    Am I the only one who doesn't care about this and wished they'd announced Diablo 3? :mad:

    RRP of £30 in the UK, bought mine online day of UK launch for £18 - price dropped to £10 with a few months of release.

    Pretty good value i reckon, although thay could have gave away a months free play.

    LOL

    Not allowed to type Peninsula either.

    I agree, BC added very little dimension to the game. Besides new instances, races and zones the basic game is STILL the same, the "updates" were cosmetic and didn't do anything new for the whole WoW experience. You still do the same things in quests, PVP and instances BC just added more of the same thing except it looks a little different and there were some critical hardware support Blizzard finally got around to update.

    I was very disapointed with WoW BC and I guess that's why I've stopped playing..... And I guess I wont be buying another update.

    Mhm, then I finally went and played in Hellfire Citadel the other night - had an amazing time! :D I guess it's all about expectations and styles of gameplay. I'm firmly casual.

    As long as Blizzard doesn't pull an Apple and say "we had to take some key players off the Starcraft 2 team and put them on the WoW team..."

    I played WoW from the beginning until right before the first expansion and I'm so glad I stopped. Its the same old boring quests over and over. It started off as such a great game and now its gotten pretty lame. Bring on Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3!

    And maybe make another Warcraft title besides WoW, Warcraft 4 anyone??

    All I can say is what others have said. They need to add some content to both the Original and the BC to also offer new challenges to the veteran players and more for the new players to entice them to buy not only BC but the new one. I bought BC and still have not found much use for it yet! "You Listening Blizzard!"?

    Bill.....:apple:
