Default To WOW or not to WOW?

I'm debating on whether or not I wan't to start playing WOW again... seems to compel me for reasons unknown since I'm a hardcore FPS gamer...

However, I really do enjoy playing some moderate MMO's... Guild Wars seems very shallow to me since I've played through Nightfall, some Factions and Prophecies...

I've played WOW before, didn't really enjoy it, but that was probably because I was still quite a low level... thus I couldn't raid, pvp, go into dungeons etc.

The 14.99 monthly seems quite ridiculous... I might just pickup xbox live again and go play some H3 online

nah, I've played before, didn't really get addicted unless I was doing something that I couldn't pause or stop without having to start all over

I still love my FPS' just trying to find some variety :P

lol... that makes me want to play more... there must be a reason why people love playing it so much... its one of the few games "non-geeks" play... ridiculous, some "ghetto" kiddos where talking about their level 60 rogues and such... apparently they get geeky kids to lvl them for them lol

Don't waste your $15 a month. IMO live and Halo 3 would be a much better decision.

hmm... I guess I'll have to decide on my own, maybe the 10 day Burning Crusade trial will tide me over to the Blizzard side...
