It’s been a long, long time since there was new content. To give you an idea, Patch 5.4 was released in September 10. September. And now its June. Nine months of Siege of Orgrimmar. Nine months of Timeless Isle (which by the way, is not as timeless as its name may imply). Nine months of…. nothing.
And frankly, for the majority of players, nine months is way too long to wait for content. Many players have completed their Siege of Orgrimmar difficulties and stopped running the raid. Timeless Isle is only inhabited on Tuesdays, when everyone wants their weekly Celestials and Ordos runs. Many more players have simply left the game entirely. And WoD is not due for months.
For a subscription based game such as WoW, this is bad. Very bad. Like you are in the middle of a vast desert with no water bad. Blizzard needs to give the players our precious water of content, or we will start dropping off like flies.
But not all of these metaphorical flies depend on this new water to survive. Some of us find older water in the desert that some of the other flies do not look for. Some players, my self included, are finding content new to us within the ten years of old content. We are finding new things to do without needed more content spilled over us.
And, some other flies are just now starting to drink the waters of MoP, of Cataclysm, of Wrath, of the entire game. Some of us are struggling to catch up.
But unfortunately, the majority of the flies are not interested in discovering older untapped waters. They want new, and they want it now. This is an absolutely valid opinion, but these flies need to remember that not all flies feel the same way. Many players fed up with the lack of content are going out and complaining to Blizzard and to each other that everyone wants new content and that everyone will leave if they don’t get it. These flies, these parasites are making a grave mistake. They are generalizing the entire WoW player base to prove their point, and they frankly are wrong.
Remember, these players are also about as influential as flies. Blizzard knows that they are upset, and can acknowledge the problem, but it really can’t go much faster without producing crappier content. And when these players drone on endlessly, they start to be swatted away and ignored. They become pests instead of aids.
If you are tired of the lack of content, then unsub until more comes out. Go play Wildstar or something. But please, don’t whine and complain and moan and tantrum that there is no content. We all know that. With this endless complaints and this endless negativity, you are turning the WoW community into a sour angry mob. I completely understand your anger, but please. Little angry buzzing flies, go find your water somewhere else.
