What is World of Warcraft?

January 18, 2020


hello guys and welcome so today I wanted
to do an introduction into what is world of warcraft now to a lot of you this
might be like really silly and obvious but there are some you never know who
just don’t know what this game is so originally while the Warcraft came out
in 2004 and they’ve been celebrating 15 years worth of you know live service
endless expansions they’ve had the Burning Crusade they’ve had Cataclysm
they’ve had mists of pandaria they’ve had warlords of Draenor they’ve had
Legion now they have battle for Azeroth they’ve announced the next expansion
Shadowlands so this games been going for a really
long time now the reason why that this game is exceptional is because they have
done a great job in defining the different elements of what makes an
MMORPG so MMORPGs or massively multiplayer
online role-playing games now the thing with while the Warcraft is that they did
such a good job that most MMOs actually copy from the formula of World of
Warcraft so the fact is you can walk around the world freely you can fly you
can go most places in the game after the Cataclysm expansion came out they
revamped the original zones so you can even fly in those as well and based on
my final fantasy xiv audience by to do a comparison like at the moment you know
how you can fly in the new expansion areas like heaven sward and storm
blooded shadow bringers but you can’t fly in the original round reborn zones
while the Warcraft actually had that same issue back in the day but then
Cataclysm came along and they made it so you can fly literally everywhere but
they have gated content as well in World of Warcraft so you can’t instantly fly
in a new expansion area once it comes out you have to work your way through
the zones and earn the ability to fly in the everyw news on but it’s still there
now the again a difference with this game compared to a 14 is that the global
cooldown as in the amount of time it takes for your abilities to happen is
lightly in a second whereas in world inform
Final Fantasy 14 it’s like nearly double that so it means that when you have
combat in the game the amount of key presses you’re pressing is a lot more
rapid and but for me personally that makes some form much more exciting PvP
so I would rate the PvP system in world of warcraft to be higher than Final
Fantasy 14 just for that reason because it’s really really fast now because
there is a massively massive world in this game and they’ve had so many
expansion every expansion came with a new continent a new zone a new planet
and new whatever it’s now made the game after so many expansion seems so huge
and so like such a I don’t want to say a mess but so massive that it’s actually
difficult for new players to get into and also as well even if you and you
play and you get into the game there’s gonna be so much of the old content that
you just skip over like you can literally power level and skip entire
expansions were for content like so Burning Crusade the first expansion it’s
like at the time we spent a lot of time in Outland and the Burning Crusade and
so on but now when you level up a brand new character you’ll probably skip those
ten levels in like an hour or something or even less so and what has happened
with this game is that it’s fallen into a way of the players are so nostalgic to
the old air of the game when it first came out
burst exploring the world like the world was a lot bigger because it it was a lot
harder to get around you couldn’t fly everywhere you have to travel everywhere
on foot you couldn’t like get around as easy there’s always a threat of other
players and so on and it was also way way way harder to
level up now for that reason and that reason alone they decided to release
while the warcraft classic because people players of this game were begging
for it for years and years and years and years I basically said the game was
amazing when it came out 2004 it was challenging the world was a
lot more of a threat it made the game a lot more satisfying when you got to the
end level and did the on game content and so on whereas now is so easy it’s
ridiculous and they added other features to the game which a lot of players just
didn’t pick up on much like the garrison system and things like that
now talking of the positives of the game I really enjoy the game so I’ve always
loved World of Warcraft the reason I stopped is because I played it too much
so you can see that on the screen I’ve got the title
Mithra the insane because whenever I play any MMO I rather than have loads of
characters who are mediocre I have one character and I make it as
awesome and epic as possible so right now like if you look at my reputations
tab they’re not that great but back in the day all the way I put on my son
Pandaria I would be working on stuff to the enth degree that’s why nearly all of
these are capped out in terms of reputations each one of these had to
give a reputation for example to get the title the insane back in classic days
you have to do most of these to exalted it was very very hard to do so that’s
why it was a justifiable title of the insane because I spent a ridiculous
amount of time in this game in order to do that but because I was so focused on
one character then allowed me to do that now the good thing about while the
Warcraft is that let’s say you play the game you don’t know anyone else who
plays the game you’ll knew you’re a lone wolf
whatever whatever you want to call yourself then there is so many features
in the game that allow you to play with other players without having to actually
interact with anyone so for example there’s a dungeon finder there’s a
looking for raid system so you can do the dungeons you can do the raids you
could do nearly anything in the game the battlegrounds all of it without having
to even talk to other players but if you want to really excel and push the
content to the furthest you can go like mythic content
the hardest raids and so on then you will probably need to link up with other
players to a certain degree but it depends how far you get like with any
MMO it depends how far you get into it now with every MMO it’s never too late
to get in while the Warcraft has been out for 15
years it will probably be out for another Fae so do not ever think it’s
too late to get in and every time there’s an expansion of the game there’s
also a rush you know there’s also like all the servers will crash because the
amount of players logging in will be insane and so on now the story or law
behind the game is centered around a conflict between the Alliance and the
Horde the Alliance are the let’s say the humans
the gnomes the dwarfs the general original races from Azeroth okay so they
are the Alliance the Horde are actually made up of orcs and other let’s say
outcast races who are from they were originally from Outland
and then they came over to Azeroth through the Dark Portal and the conflict
has been going on for a very very long time now the difference with war World
of Warcraft and the original Warcraft games is that it’s one story one
continuous story so you can go back through the old Warcraft games to read
the old law and it’s relevant to the world of warcraft law whereas in final
fantasy which I explained in the previous video
each Final Fantasy game is a separate story so they have similarities like you
know they have talked about crystals they’re caught by a fire and so on but
they are all separate whereas Warcraft and World of Warcraft
is all the same big world and Blizzard who make World of Warcraft or made
Warcraft they have really cultivated a very interesting world was a lot of
interesting characters now the problem is as well as a a lot of these key
characters from the past they’ve killed them off you know they made them bosses
in in the game so like this Illidan there’s all these bosses who were in the
main law of the old Warcraft games a woman killed off but as a convenient
use in the next expansion called Shadowlands
you’re gonna visit the afterlife of warcraft called the Shadowlands and they
said you will be able to offend essentially a link arc with probably
every single person you’ve defeated in the past so it would be their excuse to
bring back like all the bosses and all the everyone you’ve ever killed now when
I was playing the game back in 2004 like some what 15 years ago I was in
university I was still in my late teens about to be early 20s and so on and the
community of world of warcraft was very toxic very childish like you know you
tag a mob with someone else was going for and you’ll be berated and so on
these days it’s not the case anymore it does just doesn’t happen anymore in fact
the game really encourages people to be nice to each other and so on but I also
think that that’s fundamentally down to everyone who played the game originally
who has nostalgic value has been playing the game for 15 years they’re all 15
years older you know I mean so you’re not gonna be hopefully you’re not gonna
act the same way you did when you were 12 when you were almost Fae you know I
mean so it’s a game which has really really pushed the envelope so many times
at the moment as you can see like some of the areas in in this game at the
moment are very very quiet because everyone right now is playing World of
Warcraft classic they’re not playing as much of the retail game so if if you
hear people talk about world of warcraft retail they mean the main game if you
have that than talking about classic you’re talking about the classic servers
of the original content of the original World of Warcraft and there is a
thriving streaming community behind this game so maybe you’ve seen mention of
sodapoppin or has been gold or any of these huge massive streamers who called
serve a enormous audiences and they you know they have a really good thing going
just based around World of Warcraft so sometimes I play other games but most of
the audience stemmed from this one game now there is a thing for me where I I do
sometimes question what would have happened for me for this channel for
everything if I just stuck to wow I never played Final Fantasy 14 I was just
a WoW player who knows what could have happened maybe I would have been bigger
maybe I would have been more well-known who knows but at the same time the
reason I decided to change over is because I was playing the game too much
on my part now so I played the game pretty much constantly between classic
launched in 2004 and mists of pandaria is launched in like what 2012 or
something like that so for like eight years straight and after that I just my
brain couldn’t take anymore because like I said I just played one character I
really always pushed it to the other degree and so on so I always had I had a
growing desire to just try something else and do something else cuz as a
gamer I’m always looking for new things that’s why every single day I’m
releasing a new what is video for a different game or a different franchise
but the reason I wanted to make this video is basically to give recognition
and give testament for how great a game World of Warcraft is so I am hoping to
return to World of Warcraft and get level up to level cap before Shadowlands
comes out and then I’ll check out Shadowlands now there are some people
who have this feeling especially in the 14 community that it’s almost as if
people talk like you can’t like both like if you like 14 you don’t like Wow
or vice versa and I was like I like both simple as that now but the problem is
with mmo’s is their time to play both probably not but I do this full-time and
I can’t have more than one MMO at a time so that’s why I barely touch this game
but again my subscription is still active my subscription is still active
for 14 but I’ve not really even touched this game even in this expansion so you
see I’m still level 110 the maximum right now is 120 so but I think some at
some point I will like I said I will level up this
there again to get ready for Shadowlands now I did previously make a 14 vs. wild
video and like I said I reiterate what I said in that video
they’re both great in their own way PvP and the law is better in this game the
story driven narrative the graphics the music is better in 14 but both will give
you an amazing experience if you’re looking for an MMO to play now given its
age now like I said this is a 15 year old game it’s it’s lasted the test of
time very well it looks great it doesn’t look amazing not by today’s
standards and by the time the PlayStation 5 or the next generation
comes out its gonna look like trash but the thing of this game is is it’s the
fun so for example Nintendo games they’re not that they don’t graphically
look amazing not even at all the point is the fun so this game is fun to play
and there is a lot to explore and so on B there is some voice-acted cutscenes
some but they’re sort of few and far between whereas there’s a like compared
to 14 there’s barely anything but there is a huge world of the and there’s a lot
of characters and because the characters I would say the character World of
Warcraft are more infamous than they are within 14 for example but you have your
Lich Kings the office:meta fills the brawl surfing
Sylvanas you know these are names which ring true in to probably all gamers
whereas characters like Lois wah and mint philia but you’re probably only
gonna know them if you actually have played 14 you know I mean so that’s the
the thing so generally guys I really like what a
Warcraft I would say if you’re interested if you’ve always wondered
about the game give it a go as with most mmo’s you can try it for free you can
play it see if you like it if you have friends who have played it in the past
talk to them see if they’ll play the game with you and so on show you around
and things like that and generally as well it’s just the
positivity guys simply try it you don’t like it try something else there’s
thousands of games out there so on but like I said I just wanted to give
recognition that this game is great I really enjoyed my time in this game I
will revisit it do it you can never really permanently quit any game for me
personally unless you’re dead quite simply I’m a gamer for life I was you
know I I was a gamer when I was eight years old I’m almost 35 I’m gonna still
a gamer now I’ll be a game of when I’m 60 plus so that’s a thing I don’t think
I’ll ever stop being a gamer so that’s the that’s the thing so it’s to answer
the question what is well the Warcraft World of Warcraft is the greatest MMORPG
that ever came out simply it has not been outdone a lot of ml of RPGs have
come close and a lot of them copy the formula but war the Warcraft is the
greatest simple as that so anyway guys that’s it for this video if you liked it
