Might be old but meh :)

"The year is 2010. You have been playing this game for 6 years already (or less if you started later than release of WoW). You are male/female in their mid twenties.

Blizzard has just announced that World of Warcraft servers will be shut down in 2 hours for good. Meaning an official end of World of Warcraft. Every boss has been beaten, every encounter has been raided. Archimonde was killed. So were Titans and most powerful creatures in the game. There are several expansions already, and The Burning Crusade seems like it was so long ago. There are several big changes to the game, such as new races, new classes and even new factions. New Battlegrounds, new massive weapons, and new ways to fight...like capturing Orgrimmar/Ironforge for several days until the opposing faction groups and fights it back.
You are level 99 (you are highest level and the cap is raised to level 99 in the last expansion)


It is very rainy and cold outside. The kind of weather where you are very sleepy and do not want to go outside. It is Saturday morning, and you have no plans for the weekend. You have no homework/job work to do. Basically, the whole weekend is free for you.

You just logged in to start having fun and play for the whole day, and Blizzard just announced the news about shutting down. You realize this is not April's fool joke because it is being posted everywhere (forums, in-game, WoW website, cnn.com, google.com, ign.com and every single gaming website)
You have exactly 2 hours from the moment you received the news.

You just thought and realized that you wasted 6 years of your life playing this game (less if you started later). All your items will be gone in exactly 2 hours. All your achievements you have collected in the past 6 years will be gone in 2 hours.

And now ladies and gentlement, the ultimate question:

WHAT DO YOU DO IN THE NEXT 2 HOURS. ANYTHING YOU WANT TO MAKE THE FINAL MOMENTS OF WOW DEFINING. The next 2 hours will be your last in the game and EVERYTHING will be gone."

What would you do in those 2 hours? :)

If it was something I really loved in 2010, I'd set up a private server, with proper hosting etc and keep the game going.

There was no WoW, you wake up to your real life from the dream that you thought you were playing WoW.

Also, wouldnt it be smarter by blizzard to close the game during the maintenance?

I would do as tsarina, get people i wanna stay in touch with's mail, or something followed by playing on turiels server while waiting for WoW2 ^^

Same thing we always do at the end of a MMO. Try to take over the world.

Sell all my stuff, empty out my bank, and buy the whole server as much booze as possible ... Alliance will have to come drink with lvl 1 alts or something tho, sorry!!

And after that, prolly wait for WoW2 ...

Is there seriously anyone out there that will take until 2010 to realise this? Is there seriously anyone that hasn't already realised this?

Achievements? Pah!

Anyhoo, in the extreeeeeemely unlikely event of me still playing WoW in 2010, I'd probably:

/g Oh well, that was fun - cya

I would stand for 2 hours straight dancing naked in Orgrimmar, as a statement that Im not leaving. Heck, it worked in AB, so why not now? :)
Then at the last minute before all goes dark i would "/w Solkaner you suck" and start looking for IRL friends. I'd prolly start by looking for ppl on forums from my hometown and arrange a meeting from there to make the transision as smooth as possible. :P

1) Check my order for WoW 2
2) See if anybody on my long list of friends on the server, I didn't already have contact info on, was online.
3) Verify that I were already in the WoW 2 beta.
4) Log out. Log on WoW 2 beta.

The above was fairly close to what happend, when EQ gave place to EQ2. Only they didn't shut EQ down, and it's stil limping along like a shadow of it's former glory.

Btw .. EQ2 sucks. Apparently they didn't learn enough from the mistakes and the snafu in EQ. Scary ..

Bunneh
21-11-2006, 10:14 AM
EQ2, aint that done my Sony? There's why it's so shit - Sony. I really enjoyed SWG, but they killed my pets, they can all go to hell now!

I would first slam my head in the wall, then sit in a corner until Warhammer online is launched.

I'll probably be too busy leading my cat army against the injustices of the world to notice.
