The End of the World (of Warcraft)

My WoW account expires in a few hours, and I just killed Deathwing and completed the Dragon Soul raid. I saw all of the content currently in the game, completed the story.  I’m done.  Finished.  I did everything I set out to do last December about this time.

And so, after seven years (I started on Malygos during release week of WoW in 2004), lots of friends, fun, and frustration, I logged out of Azeroth for the very last time.

So thank you, Blizzard, for the last seven years.  You made a good game.  A great game.  It’s just not the game for me anymore.


This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

  1. What a great way to leave an mmorpg. You can walk away with a sense of accomplishment that you “finished the game”.

    I get a terrific buzz out of finishing single player games and it is one of my greatest problems with mmorpgs that they are specifically designed so you can never finish.

  2. I think you got too attached with the game and are not feeling happy that it has come to an end. Please share what the game was all about.

  3. All good things come to an end. It is then that you realize its importance. May you get the game again for free!
