    Has anyone else got bored in WAR yet?

    I was all hyped up and desperate to play WAR when it came out. I forked out £60 for the collectors edition. For the first few days the game seemed awesome, there was lots of people around and PQs were fun. Now wherever I go its empty, occasionally i'll get a party of 3 of 4 people to try a PQ and we'll wipe. The scenarios aren't all that fun either.

    I'm seriously reconsidering reactivating my WoW account now that WotLK is only a few weeks away.

    Anyone else having thoughts like this? Maybe its just my server thats empty in my level range or maybe my class sucks (Goblin Shaman).

    Are you on a low-population server? And are you in a guild? Seems like your complaints center around the lack of people to do things with. While it's only natural that you'll find less people in the higher-level PQs than you will in the first few ones (where there are only a handful to choose from), I don't have too much trouble finding an active one if I'm trying. I do play on a high-population server, however (Phoenix Throne). You can look for open parties that are doing PQs, or you can make your own, or you can just invite people the old-fashioned way (via tells and the chat channels), if you're really into doing PQs. The other solution is to find yourself a guild, so that way you have a pool of people to play with, and you're not as dependent on chancing across a big group of people doing a PQ to complete one. Also, Scenarios are a lot more fun when you're going into them with an organized party. So guilds certainly add a lot of enjoyment to that aspect of the game as well.

    But to answer your question: no, I haven't gotten bored with it yet =). Scenarios and Open-world RvR are a blast. For me at least the unpredictability of facing off against human opponents (rather than predictable AI) keeps my interest much better than level-grinding an endless succession of monsters just standing around waiting to get ganked. Could be just me though .

    I have not yet acquired the game but I would imagine the 'emptiness' would be due to:

    1 - Increase in space (the starting and first few tiers would be more cramped then later in the game yes?)

    2 - Disinterest in PQ in comparison to Scenarios and other PvP

    3 - Your server being a low pop server

    As stated by Hasten, joining a guild would ensure you have lots of other people to interact with.

    I'm thinking its a low server population issue (I'm already in a guild). I'm going to try a different server and see how it goes.

    Thanks guys.

    nope i ahvent got bored playing the game itself, the only thing thats boring me a bit is grinding through PQ's. Where i am there are not many players despite it being axe bite pass with a high population count. I havent noticed many peple and have completed a PQ since about chapter 5. Now at chapter 10 (elves) and for the previous quests im just grinding to get the influence rewards.

    As for a guild i have been asked to join two and found them full of annoying people who just flooded me with stupid comments so i left both about half an hour alter

    il put up with the grinding and just keep soloing if it ensures me a bit of peace

    I did get bored with the game, and to be honest I am so burned out of it that I probably won't play it again. My issue was more along the lines of playing it, seeing it, and being involved with it for 9+ hours a day, nigh on every day for just over a month. Just goes to show that if you try to turn play into work, it really does turn into work, and it burns you out. A shame, too, because the game is brilliant.

    That's what I tell everyone I meet who thinks they want to be a porn star.

    If I had simply been playing it to play it, I likely wouldn't have gotten tired of it. But I was literally seeing it the entire time I was working, 9 hours a day, and wasn't always playing it in that time. I don't think I've gotten tired of a game just from playing it yet, thankfully!
