Now did WoW game play change for the worse over the last several expansions? Or are you just tired of doing the same old thing over and over again? Hey, more content must equal more fun right? Well not if you're still pressing the same buttons that do the same things. This is why its time for MMOs to evolve away from the WoW model, not try to stick to it like SWTOR.
No contradiction at all. I enjoyed that original experience because it was actually difficult. Not even 1% of guilds on any given server will have downed cthun during vanilla, heck not even every server had him down, I think maybe 10-15 servers did. So you assume wrong, my problem with the game was not on minor gameplay changes (I still found the gameplay fun), it was on difficulty and the rate that content released. And only reason I mention rate was because the content was easy, so it was downed fast and the dev's couldn't keep up with the rate they needed to introduce new content. Instead it should have been less content and more difficult.
So yes pretty the same buttons is just fine, I played AoC for quite a while, and it was fun, but it was also annoying as hell being melee in that game, sometimes I wanted to just relax.
