World Of Warcraft (WoW)
Another Blizzard made MMO, however unlike Overwatch it is an MMORPG, which you probably already know, since it's been around since 2004, and is one of the most
talked about.. loved and complained about MMORPGs. World of Warcraft, or as everyone calls it, WOW. WoW has had a lot of changes since its initial release date
which makes sense as, an MMORPG that doesn't change with the times, ends up dying. However it changing is generally where a lot of negativity regarding WoW actually
stems from, because change can potentially ruin your favorite classes,
completely mess up PvP content with unbalanced classes, like one class being overpowers (*DK*), and another being underpowered (*Warlock*). This is the same for PvE content
as well. With your favorite class being nerfed, making you perform sub-par in PvE related content and therefore not required for Mythic Raids.
Now this isn't really an issue with WoW itself as it is with the raid leaders or players. As Blizzard is constantly buffing and nerfing classes, it's too hard to keep track of what's
good or what's bad each month, so you can pretty much play whatever class you enjoy, and have fun watching flavor of the month players struggle.
In WoW, the max level is 110, which I know is a lot of levels, and to be honest it can be difficult for a new player, one who hasn't played this before to be intimidated,
or generally find early levels boring. As, well.. It can be! As early level content is outdated in comparison to Legion content. But if you can sit through some boring levels
then WoW is a fantastic MMORPG. It has a massive world to explore, filled with content, it has a huge selection of dungeons for most levels, and raids as you get through more content.
World Flying, 5 whole continents, Which are Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Pandaria, Northrend, and Broken Isles, That's not including the planet of Draenor, and the Outlands.
Now I briefly mentioned the general complains regarding WoW, and they are valid as it can be annoying getting your character nerfed, however generally WoW is considered by a large majority
of people as having a toxic community and to answer this, being a long time WoW player myself I can say, that yes, it can be depending on your server or in what setting were talking about. As I've found the players in WoW
are more Toxic in regards to PvP. Whereas I've seen more friendlier players enjoying PvE content. However it's not as toxic as publicized. Or at least not in my experience and that of the people I know.
Take that as you will.
Now World of Warcraft has 12 classes, some of which are race locked, however both factions can be all the classes. I don't feel like I need to go into much detail regarding classes
as I feel most people generally know what they are. So I'll leave this section simple.
As most MMORPGs, WoW has dungeons, which can be set on a varied difficulty, and the same goes for Raids, for instance, Naxxramas 10M Normal, or Naxxramas 25M Heroic. Or for later raids, even a Mythic difficulty.
difficulty isn't the only thing that changes however, as the general mechanics of said raid can change, AKA a boss uses different skills or more skills. These dificultys also give you better rewards however.
Generally, The reason WoW is still such a popular, MMORPG that's still going after all these years, and after all these changes from its original state, is because it's just a pretty fantastic MMORPG. It definityly has flaws, so many. However
The negative does not out way the positives. And this is why you'll find WoW in so many top lists, just like this one.
