Falling off the wagon?

It's been about two years since I stopped smoking crack playing World of Warcraft. I played for about two years before that and had a good time. Its a very fun and engaging game, and the lore is impressive. Exploring new areas, taking on new challenges, and playing in a massive game was a blast.

Then I hit the level cap. At that point the only real way for me to progress was to grind daily quests and/or start raiding. Raiding would have required a guild, and since i didn't know anyone on my server, I figured what's the point? Raiding also requires dedicated time slots for gaming. Like a job. I didn't want playing games to be a JOB.

Blizzard has increased the level cap and added new content since I last played, so I could start up with the latest expansion and continue on to the new areas. But eventually i'd hit the same limit, and be in the same position. Hardly seemed worth the investment.

Blizzard being blizzard they wouldn't give up, they wouldn't let go once they got their hooks into me. How could they pull me back in though?

This is how.

The next major expansion will basically revamp the whole game from the ground up. The previous new game experience will be completely redone. Areas will be remade. Quests will be new and different. Essentially it will be a brand new game, one I can start from the ground up and experience all the parts I enjoyed the most.

Jerks.

So yeah, I'm strongly considering re-upping when it Cataclysm (as the new expansion will be named) comes out. I won't play as much as I used to, but I have a couple friends whose guild's I could join up with. Blizzard you crafty beasts. Maybe I'll be able to resist the games siren call. But that is looking highly unlikely at this point.
