Wrath of the Lich King-New WoW expansion?
« on: July 31, 2007, 05:09:31 pm »
Yeah that's right, the name of the new expansion to World of Warcraft will be "World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King"
The ones that spoiler this information is Germany's software rating organisation, called "USK".

Yesterday they added a game called "World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King (GC-Demo)" to their list. GC is the "Games Convention" in Leipzig.



Now since most people won't say that this is proof enough, going to http://wow-europe.com/wrath (the European site of WoW) gives you a "permission denied" error, while going to http://wow-europe.com/adhjshkajd gets you a "404 error". (same with http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/wrath)

Originally, Blizzard wanted to announce this on the BlizzCon, which starts in 2 days. Also, since it says "GC-Demo", there will be a playable demo of it at the GC in Germany.

So, WoW: WotLK, eh? long name.

Only one thing to say:

Nooooooonewraceshahaibetyoujustthoughtthissaidno


On a more serious note, why don't they just let the monstrosity die, I mean, work on Starcraft 2, thats what people really (deep down) want.

Not really. WoW is a still-increasing income for Blizzard.

We can all rest easy knowing that they won't do this to Starcraft.


They know better than to try that....

haha, that would be brilliant!

Also, I will not buy any more gaming cards or expansions, any more. given up wow long time ago.

It's almost like smoking(i think), so addictive.

ugh my hate for WoW has increased, I still say they should have just stuck too keeping WoW a strategy game gawd. Wrath of the Lich King is just going too be based in Northrend probably with about 100 quests related too this.

"Greetings Hero, we are in dire need of warm clothes up here I know you have slain dragons, killing demons and heck even beat Illidan but right now I need you too go and deliver this package too my brother too the north"

*Several Minutes later*

"Ah my brother sent you this package did he? Well it appears some of the contents are missing, listen I can give you some gold if you go out and collect 20 Pelts for me"

Actually, near later game its more like, "I need you to take this Griffon and go bomb the hell out of the demon army, if you do I shall give you an enchanted sword of fire" or "I need you to invade the stronghold of Black Temple, kill all of Illidans generals, meet up with Maiev and kill The Betrayer."

The bombing one was a good one but other than that there all simple kill and bring back head or pendant quests. They really need too do something more original, I dont see how people havent gotten bored of it yet hell Ive visited the boards everyone has a stress level of 85% or much higher if it kills you so much stop playing the game. ???

Well i like how theres going to be more character customization. Theres not going to hundreds who look like you on your server. The new class sounds intresting. I think that was needed more then more races in the burning crusade. Lets hope that this expansion will add something that really shakes the foundation of wow and breaks out of that standard mundane mmorpg.

I've already played it and it seemed to be the same stuff, although I only played for like 20 minutes and most of it spent placing talent points and buyin spells. I am actually considering restarting my account.

I played a Warrior and a Rogue took me about two years too get them up too 60 and I must say there were barely any moments where I even said anything out loud. I was horde and I just found the game so repetative, there were some quests like the Counterattack mission that was awsome but besides that it was going by the rinse, wash and repeat system.

I have no idea probably somewhere in the range of crap to none. Although also recently the game tries to download a patch all it does is download the patch downloader but doesnt download a patch it does this every time i try and play the only way to play the game to to hit play for it tries to start downloading the patch.

Actually, I went to blizzcon and there was a playable demo. There wasn't really anything except a starting area and a few quests. There was also a 10-man raid (zul aman I think). But, the new features for the expansion sound cool.

The video card could cause the crashes but the downloading sounds like a firewall issue.

Does anyone think that the death knight is sort of the reverse of a paladin?

Also a 256 geforce 6100 should be enough to handle a wow? I played before with slow results but i dont know if i should place all the blame on my connection.

I'm running with no Graphic card the game runs but crashes every so often. I imagine a piss weak card would be still enough to play the game.

WoW runs great with my Radeon 9600XT so you should be fine with your 6100, as I think yours is newer anyway.

A good connection is vital, apart from that I think WoW is mainly a drain on processing power and RAM, and most of the people I know who play it chat on MSN and surf the internet whilst playing so it's not even that.  You have to admit... although WoW is a boring drone after you've been playing incessantly for days on end, it's magnificently developed and I have little complaints about technical issues.

I remember they were originally going to implement hero classes into WoW vanilla but couldn't implement them, so they put them off until a later date.  I'd imagine there will be more hero classes implemented in further expansions, I mean, there are no other continents for them to add so there will probably be more of a focus on hero classes and the like.

I work a full time job  and play in my spare time. I do as much as anyone else on the game they even have things implemented that reward breaks.

Also over 9 million people disagree with you about it being a bad game. Its nice to have an opinion but please don't treat it as fact.

At least Blizzard make sure their products are of high quality, and don't go through with projects unless they are completely satisfied with them (see Starcraft: Ghost).
