Pros Warcraft Setting in a MMORPG
Cons Lag Mixed with Bugs
Summary Well, when WoW first came out it was loaded with bugs. The game would crash constantly, servers were always being taken down for repairs, it was a hell of a mess. Now they seem to have a good chunk of the servers fixed, but the lag is still there.
Overall World of Warcraft has the standard feel of what has become the world of MMORPGs. Like City of Heroes, Final Fantasy Online, Star Wars Galaxies, and the MMORPG's that came before those, WoW has the same look and feel even though it's a different setting. While I do agree that the graphics in WoW are extremely beautiful, if you've already surcome to boredom with one of the affore mentioned MMORPG's then this isn't for you.
On the other hand if you have played one of the mentioned games and are an old fan of Warcraft then this game is definately for you! That is, if you don't become angered by lag. Unless you are an extremely well off individual using a T1 connection and a state of the art computer you will notice some stuttering in gameplay when moving through some of the more popular cities, and sometimes even some of the half-empty ones.
My only real issue with the game, besides having to pay every month, is the fact that the server lags. In this day and age there is no reason for it. There are known "private servers" operated by the average "joe" with an average PC running up to 1000 players with little to no lag, which leaves me wondering what is wrong with the billion dollar company hosting this one? Doesn't make much sence to me, unless they're running on the cheapest server they possibly can get away with, thus the rating.
Pros This is the funnest game I have played in a long time, and definelty the best MMORPG out there on the market now
Cons you may lose friends/job/family from playing this game too much, its like crack!
Summary This game is honestly too fun for its own good. Luckily I have RL friends to play it with who crack out more than me so I dont feel as bad when I play all the time. If you like computer games or MMORPGS play this NOW!!
Pros MMORPG, KILLS TIME QUICKLY, INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS
Cons BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE, ACCOUNT BANNED FOR HAVING FIRST NAME FAKE DESPITE PROVING EVERY OTHER DETAILS CORRECTLY, IGNORED BY CUSTOMER ASSISTANT WHO DOESN'T REPECT A CUSTOMER (I BET HE WOULD HAVE IF IT WAS SOMEONE RELATED TO HIM!)
Summary I CALLED THE BLIZZARD WAITING HELL LONG TIME TO TALK ABOUT MY ACCOUNT GETTING BANNED FOR NO REASON. MY REAL FIRST NAME IS DIFFERENT BUT MY SECOND NAME IS REAL IN THE ACCOUNT AS WELL AND I HAVE EVERY OTHER INFORMATION THAT BLIZZARD NEEDS FROM ME ''HOWEVER'' THE CUSTOMER ASSISTANT GUY KEPT TELLING ME IF I DON'T SEND HIM MY ID WITH ''RUNA'' NAME ON IT, HE WOULDN'T UNBAN THE ACCOUNT AND SINCE I KEPT ON TRYING TO EXPLAIN, NOW MY TICKET HAS A MESSAGE BELOW SAYING '' IF YOU KEEP ON CALLING WITHOUT HAVING ''RUNA'' ID, THEN WE ARE GOING TO BAN YOUR PHONE NUMBER!!??? AFTER PLAYING MORE THAN A YEAR AND WITH 3 85 CHARACTERS AND OWNING A 25 LEVEL GUILD AND MORE THAN 500K GOLD, THEY BANNED ME FOR HAVING MY FIRST NAME FAKE!
I WANT TO ASK BLIZZARD IF YOU CHECK ALL YOUR CUSTOMER'S ACCOUNT THEN MOST OF THEM ALMOST 99% WILL HAVE THEIR FIRST OR LAST NAME FAKE OR BOTH. OBVIOUSLY IT'S A GAME AND WHY WOULD ANYONE PUT THEIR REAL INFORMATION IN THERE? THE ONLY REAL INFORMATION WE PROVIDE IS WHEN WE PAY YOU BY OUR ''BANK CARD'' AND ''ADDRESS'' WHICH OBVIOUSLY WHEN I ASKED YOU TO CONFIRM, YOU COMPLETELY IGNORED. I CAN NOT CALL BLIZZARD CAUSE THEN I WILL GET BANNED AND I CAN NOT GET MY CHARACTERS AND MY YEAR AND MONTHS OF TIME I SPENT IN THE GAME.
I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IF SOMEONE WOULD REPLY TO MY REVIEW IF THEY KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS OR IF THERE IS ANYTHING I CAN DO ABOUT THIS BECAUSE I WANT BLIZZARD TO KNOW THAT THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS BAD AND CUSTOMERS LIKE ME SHOULD BE ABLE TO JUSTIFY THEMSELVES AND NOT GET ACCOUNT BANNED FOR NO REASON.
IF BLIZZARD JUST WANTS MONEY AND NOT CUSTOMER'S SUPPORT THEN I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY.

Summary Here is a day in the life of WoW: Trade chat, Players making accusations that other players are sexual predators based on toon names or new players asking questions in trade chat... Trolls who routinely creat new characters, yet are not smart enough to create an original they just change the spelling to get around WoW's anti haraasment tool called ignore....
If you enjoy spending money to experience all of the above by all means have fun...
