Gonna say I like what you said :D
AurallWow on 5. Jun. 2017.
This describes exactly how I feel, man. I didn't start until TBC was already underway, but the point is still there. It's weird, but WoW tought me that the feeling of hard work paying off is incredibly nice. Getting stuff with 0 effort or based on sheer luck can and will never replace that, which is why I dislike the current state of the game. Hopefully someday we can have that feeling back, somehow. Regardless of that, I'll keep following you. Love the content, love the stream. Keep doing what you do, man!

16,17,18 yo all do drugs and fk bitches while you are making a video for "them" hoping that they will experience the same stuff you did 12 years ago CmonBruh.This game is old it will never be the same and nobody cares about it.
Austin Marsella on 5. Jun. 2017.
Thank you for this video Zack. I felt the exact same way and always had a hard time explaining it to others but you said it perfectly and really helped me to even fully comprehend my own emotions regarding the topic.
Pete on 5. Jun. 2017.
Asmon, I really like this video. As a 14 year old who mythic raids, and plays this game a lot, these words really resonate with me. I appreciate your opinion, and you are an inspiration ( in the wow sense, I dont want a lair...)
Tyler Liley on 5. Jun. 2017.
Speak the truth brother, i've never really thought about this. This hits the nail on the head man, this is what I feel like i've lost a lot of interest in WoW and a lot of other games like LoL.
Happytremereinc on 5. Jun. 2017.
thank you for your strong words. I am with you. vanilla player who thinks the game has lost some of it's player building items.

Love this video man. I'm 17 myself and have been playing since I was 9 years old, back in Wrath. I experienced the same experience that you described about realizing that I'm more than just a kid in school that didn't have any skills - that I have the potential for something more. I love your videos and your streams because you and me are alike in many ways based on the experiences and stories you've told all of us about, and it's amazing to find someone who's one in the same. Thanks for all of your content and thanks for being awesome, dude. :D

When people get personally pejorative about a subject they are either jealous of your success or they are trying to get your goat and make you change your style. You are right to ignore these people. To get personal, "jus trash".
Bucur Cristian on 5. Jun. 2017.
Ur guides are great and ur style is unique. Love ur videos. Keep it up!

couldnt have said it better myself. "The opportunity to succeed and the privilege to fail. Because without one, the other doesn't matter." somebody frame that shit
Greg Myers on 5. Jun. 2017.
You are not alone!!! There are life lessons and real world skills that can be gleaned from this game. I support your notion to continue a positive environment focused on the frame of mind depicted in this video.
Manuel M. on 5. Jun. 2017.
I really love what you are saying in this video. I have started playing video games when i was 13 years old (now 22) and i also started with mmorpgs, not WoW tho. And when i think back or talk to my friend about these old times, this nostalgic feeling is coming back and it feels incredible. I think it is kinda sad that we will never experience that same feeling again, but its a great experience that we have shared and lived. And what it all comes to in the end: i rather have to remember that feeling, than if i wouldnt have experienced that feeling in the first place. thanks asmongold for doing a great job, because you love what you do.
rykerkmartin on 5. Jun. 2017.
I was never that person trying to be hyper "successful" in WoW raiding, but I liked the fact that things had to be earned, and me not earning them didn't bother me. I prefer the idea that the end is hard to reach, because it means you're always progressing in some way. I was never part of some crazy good raiding guild, I probably could have. I found that I could lead raids pretty well, and study encounters to the minor detail, but it was just fun being part of a group that took longer to get through those things. It meant we always had something to raid, and even if we failed it was a learning process, not a 9-5 job, but you have to have raids be difficult enough for some people to actually need to make it their 9-5 in order to complete it, or its not going to last. You said it best, you can't win if you can't lose.

Fuck yeah, man. Love it. Keep doing you, boo.

hopskotch I still remember ya from way in the day. don't even worry about em.
toxicwasteman on 5. Jun. 2017.
Amen. kids new to this game today will never know the endless grind to max level, loaning money from a trusted guildmate to ride a SIXTY PERCENT LAND MOUNT AT 40, running through Wetlands, Arathi, Hillsbrad, and finally Silverpine JUST to attempt a 5 man Shadowfang Keep at level 20. Those were the days, man. When people say Blizzard made this game easier for casuals, they weren't lying.
RockerBoy20045 on 5. Jun. 2017.
Been playing since vanilla, never reached max level until TBC came out.. but I know exactly what you mean. I miss that feeling of going home and entering a different world, no matter what happened IRL, I could be someone else and prove myself in whatever small way.. I wish the current generation could experience this (in official legacy servers)
Purple Crayon on 5. Jun. 2017.
Totally sums up when I think is the reason the game isnt quite what it used to be. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy it...but the top is entirely too accessible. There's zero sense of wonderment. And I think it has nothing to do with its age. The games balls got nipped off.
Matthew Wuttke on 5. Jun. 2017.
Strangely Mr.Asmogold. what you described for what motivates you to play WoW is the point I am at as to why I am currently raiding in Legion or even doing PVP in Legion. I didn't start in Vanilla or TBC like you did, but I got my first character to 100 during Draenor got a feel for end game content and then realized how much I hated my class. So I picked a different class and stuck with that one all the way until prepatch of legion. When demon hunters came out, I put as much effort I had put in to my major Draenor character. Since Legion dropped, I have had to pug for anything I got. My guild would raid on nights I couldn't, but it would push me to want to be best at what I could do. Yes raiding with your guild is fun because its with your guild, but with pugs, you get the feel of your time and effort going into downing a boss for something you may or may not have wanted, but it gives you a story to talk about and less of "Oh yeah a guy traded it to me because I died 15 seconds in".

The Concan on 5. Jun. 2017.
Only sad thing is that this has been said for 6+ years and blizzard havent given a single fuck. But i completely agree with what you're saying. I'm a but younger and i started somewhat late into vanilla. I reached level 60 on my warrior about the same time as silithus was released and i didnt really get into raiding until the very beginning of TBC, but i got the chance to start raidleading when i was 13 years old and i got to do it for 5 years and that portion of my life was most definitely one of the most important. Also, i'll never forget all the people i got to play with during that time.

TL;DR?
Skyhar on 5. Jun. 2017.
Holy Shit Asmongold that was the best video i have ever watched and i myself am a casual player and that i know what it is like to earn things and not just get like that i have been playing since Classic and i'm only 18 years old so i know what its like not getting what you need and trying to do farming for Hrs and Hrs of my times has been wasted but i know that will eventually accomplish of what needs to be done and i don't complain about it. Thanks so much Asmongold you have helped me for so long that is why i subscribed to you. Love your Videos man and thank you.

Chase Brown on 5. Jun. 2017.
I quit hardcore raiding and playing WoW at the end of the last xpac but I still watch your videos because of your outlook and ways you express your desire and passion (even rage) for this game. Please keep doing what you're doing.
Elias Gabriel on 5. Jun. 2017.
That s exactly what i am looking for in WoW. Sadly in Legion i feel like nothing is a reward because everybody gets everything... the only thing that feels like you accomplished something nowadays is quantity...
Derick Roach on 5. Jun. 2017.
I enjoyed this video, I agree that the reason WOW numbers are down is there is no motivation to continue playing because everything is given to us and it feels like you don't have any real goals to work toward. I remember being in stormwind seeing someone that had an epic piece of gear thinking holy shit that motherfucker is bad ass, the rest of his gear may have been blue and green but it didn't matter that fucker had an epic. Blizzard had lightning in a bottle when the people who ran raids got the best gear. I wanted that gear and was willing to grind the raids to do them. I understand that Blizzard wants to cater to a bigger audience however if they don't stay its for nothing. I also believe that Warglavies of Azzinoth is 100% drop on demon hunters I got both pieces in two attempts.

Literally just had a convo with one of my best friends, whom also plays WoW, yesterday about how much we loved growing up with WoW. So thank you for this and the many videos you've posted. Keep doing you and what you love <3
pascalmyscal on 5. Jun. 2017.
Keep it up Asmondaddy You are one of the reasons i still enjoy WoW and you are also a good guy. You are different from all the others in this community but honestly your points of view matches mine. I may not be a Vanilla guy, no. I started in WoD 3 months before end. And i have always liked dungeons, maybe because im a casual but in a game like WoW there are 4 types of players: Noobs, casuals, mythic raiders and Asmongold. Seriously everytime i watch you stream or videos i can actually tell you are just better but im beginning to accept that i will never be that good, but im happy with myself i never do any tacs wrong and do really good damage on my tank. I have always played tank since Legion came out. Paladin and Warrior i dont have time for anything else. But what i would like for Blizzard to add is hard things to achieve. I may sound like a noob when i say this but first week of Return to Karazhan i went in there with my friends and we played for 5 hours and we got to Moroes. The
Sean McMunn on 5. Jun. 2017.
Hey Zach, I feel the same way man. Started raiding at 15 in Molten Core, and back then I was the main puller which was a big deal and me some 15 year old was leading a 40 man group. The game has always been about the friends you make and I feel like hey have done an ok job with keeping that aspect alive. However I hate the loot gambling aspect, my guild is nearly done with Mythic Gul'dan but I already have the BIS loot from him so I don't even care if he dies... this system is rampant, and really is to the detriment of the game. I see that as the "80%" of the problems right now in wow, with the other 20% being LFR, CRZ, PVP loot, and meaningless achievements.
JK2DuGalle on 5. Jun. 2017.
This is the reason people have moved away from games like WoW into games like League of Legends, Dota2, Overwatch etc. There is room for casual players to just play those games for fun, but then there is also the sense of accomplishment of climbing up through the ranks and with many sweat, salt and tiers they've managed to get to a high enough rank where they wouldn't feel like just another kid/person, but that they are special in a way. Shame Mobas/FPS and competitive games in general are the only ones that have those nowadays tho.
Mark Criss on 5. Jun. 2017.
I'm constantly disappointed at the amount of hateful behavior online. I appreciate that you are able to put that garbage aside and keep doing what you do in the face of it. Personally there's no way I could deal with it myself. It gets under my skin way too easily. Just keep your head up and know that the vast majority of people who follow you appreciate your work.
