If there were NO cheating, updated content and were very minimal server issues then maybe JUST maybe a SMALL fee wouldnt be so bad. What you posted is the jist of what a ton of people said to justify paying for WoW. I remember it being so bad that I was over 200 people deep waiting to get into my server. I remember my ping being so bad I couldn't even move and lag in major citys was just horrendous. Sometimes I couldn't even log in due to the server being down. I, my friend, am NOT paying 15$ a month for that crap. The ONLY thing I can say about WoW is that they are keeping up their end of the deal on content updates. But the updates so far arn't worth the money I paid them, that and with the horrible service everywhere else I couldnt even enjoy them.
