World Of Warcraft Cataclysm A Cataclysmic Failure

Well its been a bit over a month since the newest expansion from Blizzard the creators of World Of Warcraft Cataclysm and I thought its about time I gave a review and some opinions on this newest release.

Now what can I say I feel like I got conned out of sixty bucks World of Warcraft Cataclysm is a Cataclysmic failure. Now I would like to get into some of the reasons why I feel this way. There are many bugs with questing in one case I was unable to quest in a zone because none of the quest-givers would give me the quests, sending in a ticket gets the response of we are aware of this thank you. This is a common response to numerous bug reports even though the game did go through a beta testing period.

The biggest problem though are wait times for dungeons for regular ones it averages twenty minutes for Damage Per Second classes it gets even worse at the heroic level with on average forty five minute wait times, this gets even more frustrating with the kick system being abused it's not uncommon to wait 45 minutes to help out in a heroic dungeon only to get kicked at boss fights. So on average you Que. wait 45 minutes play for a bit and repeat, this is in no way fun and really limits how you can progress in the game.

Now some might say try going the player versus player bit for gear, well the random battleground wait times average again about 20 minutes, so again its becoming wait play for a bit wait some more, in no way in my opinion is this a fun gameplay experience.

My advice to anyone that has not bought the expansion is keep your money and wait at least till you start to hear that Blizzard has made some moves to address these gameplay issues and for those of us that all ready spent the money well get ready for a really cataclysmic gaming experience.

 I'm interested in your thoughts did you have a the same experience or did you have a good one? I want to know feel free to leave your comments.
