WOW is okay solo, albeit pretty repetitive. Cataclysm dumbs it down for the under-13 crowd with a 3-minute attention span, however. BGs and dungeons with random strangers is agony. Hoppers, idiots, children,, Rambos... all with the tactical and strategic planning skills of a gnat. I gave up playing COD and other FPS games online because of the hoppers. WOW is just another game full of them, so I avoid the multi-player episodes until they put an age and IQ qualification on the game. I figure you should have to pass a chess-based skill test before you're given a password to play with adults.
