I haven’t been playing much WoW lately, partly due to family issues, but partially due to boredom. And it seems I’m not alone. While flicking through my feeds this morning, I found both the Game Dame, the Rambling Bear and the Three Druid Noob describing how very bored they are with WoW right now.
My problem is this: I’ve pretty much nothing left to do but group quests, and there’s rarely enough guildies on at one time to get group quests done. Plenty of instance running left to do – but few enough people around to do it with. We ran Kara on Monday night with 7 people on Attumen and 9 for everything up to Opera. And I can’t even blame Age of Conan any more – most people gave up on it and came back to WoW. I can spend the odd hour putting half a level on an alt, but it lacks the enjoyment I get from Leaf – I really am a one toon player at heart.
So, have Blizz completely messed up this time? Wrath is still months away, yet more and more people are just running out of things to do in Burning Crusade. Will their player base drop catastrophically before they get Wrath out?
