Anyway, I think this still applies to WoW somewhere, as you have to buy the addons to keep up,
so youre practically paying for having the possibility to obtain new stuff, which overshadows your
previous equipment. Its has been this endless circle, that finally drove me away from that game.
True that but that's somewhat similar to the idea i had when i typed that whole gospel out.
Power creep is somewhat necessary, but if it's too fast it breaks very very easily. WOW has power creep but gives enough time between major boosts for the majority of actives to catch up and enjoy the stuff they got before new stuff shows up.
