World of Warcraft

Blizzard has, to many gamers’ chagrine, created a game so devastatingly addicting that it has been used as a benchmark for many other games namely that of Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (Try saying that seven times!). This boom in World of Warcraft has also spawned a plethora of other games that try to imitate or those that try to deviate. More can be said on this topic but to redirect, World of Warcraft has created its fair share of patrons that have faithfully subscribed be it hell or high water.

This has resulted in a super class of gamer only known to mortals simply by their massive collection of mounts, transmogrified weapons and impressive number of titles. Not to mention the awe inspiring sparklies that usually accompany them. Now! Warlords of Draenor, a new game expansion, is soon to be released and I’m sure that I’m not the only one here that has all but googly eyes to go try it out.

My question is, can a new toon, knowing that it’s just a few months before the expansion release, play catch-up? Not in the sense of the multitude of items or accolades or vehicles but in the sense that the game would still be entertaining because one can actually compete at the highest levels known to World of Warcraft gaming? Whether it be in a Battleground or in a dungeon, can a player actually catch-up to these WoW demigods that walk the universe of Azeroth? Hence this experiment and hence this noob logging in. Updates on this undertaking will soon follow and It is my brightest hope that subscription doesn’t run thin.
