Hey everyone.

Here's a collection of thread titles from 2005 alone. Yes, 90% of these are just complaints (except for a few). I just thought it was interesting.

You can visit any of the sites, but the threads unfortunately no longer work. Just thought the titles told an interesting tale of how WoW has progressed.

And yes, this is only 2005.

you can't assess the health of the game based on GD

^ This y'all.

I love the way that people dismiss all criticism because there has always been criticism.

I don't think you're seeing the point of this post if that's your only take away. OP also even stated it in a response in this thread where they said that "GD doesn't showcase the health of the game". That's the point, not that criticism is being dismissed.

i remember when a warlock asked Ghostcrawler about potential nerfs.

he replied, "To the ground!"

Lol classic


Wasn't it in a comment about Rets that "To the ground!" was born?

It was Ret Paladins specifically, I still haven't fully healed from that heartbreak.
