The age old question of whether or not World of Warcraft is for casual players has reared its head once more on the game’s official forums. Battle.net user Neuriki states that he is a proud casual gamer of the MMORPG World of Warcraft. However, because of the schedule of his life, he can’t partake in certain content like Raids, and he can’t join a Guild because they only do Raids at a certain time, and if you can’t do their raids, you can’t be in the Guild.
He lists other grievances as well, but it all adds up to him not being able to enjoy the game to its fullest.
“So from a casual perspective, the game is bad and literally don’t know what to do besides quit,” he states.
In response, several World of Warcraft players offered options to help Neuriki out. A common suggestion being to move to a new realm so that he can have a better experience and meet people who play during the hours he does.
Another suggestion was to go onto the subforums and ask for people’s hours and availability to see if there are hours who share his play sessions.
Others though dismissed the idea that the game is bad for casuals. One even stepped up and said that though World of Warcraft has flaws, as a casual gamer himself, he was still enjoying it:
“I wouldn’t say that the game is bad for casual, I’d say that for how I play, it’s very good but with flaws of course,” said player Yuheria.
