I've been playing since Vanilla and this is the worst state I have ever seen the game. People are arguing about whether WoD was worse, but WoD had decent classes and raiding, just nothing else. This has a cool looking world and nothing else.

Definitely a shame.

Yeah, artistically, it's stunning. Their best effort thus far. But that's where it ends. Azerite is a piss-poor replacement for Artifact Weapons, except you lose more gear slots to it. Questing is about as fun as alternating shoving bamboo shoots under your fingernails and twizzle sticks up your pee-hole. And we're still stuck with the highly unoriginal and very non-engaging daily world quest system.

I'm waiting for either a new expansion or the release of classic. I have given up on modern WoW. It's unfortunate since I have been playing since vanilla, but I owed it to myself to not force myself to look for any reason to log in aside from the fact that I paid 15 dollars for the month.

That WoW still exists continues to surprise me. Seriously, hasn't everything been done by now? I never managed to play a mmo for more than three years, how this is still going after all this time...

I had no idea it still existed. I stopped playing right before Wrath of the Lich King got released and I somehow never heard of any further expansions since then.

Typically I play each expansion for a month or so but this one just didn't appeal to me. After hearing from friends who did play it I am glad I passed on this one. I don't think I'll pre-order any blizzard games for a long time the way things are going over there. How the mighty have fallen.

I still enjoy the social, and competitive, aspect of raiding. Obviously, this expansion I have not participated in that at all, which is why I have not been playing, but if I were, I think I would still enjoy it.

I enjoyed the expansion a bit even did a bit of heroic raiding but, I got bored of it a lot faster than legion. Which I think is because I found the post leveling quest chain in Suramar to be a lot more interesting. Probably because faction war expansions tend to disinterest me greatly. Though all in all I’m usually not a fan of mmos because grinding never feels satisfying, in my opinion.

Also making a divergent horde storyline like they plan sounds like it will be confusing confusing to figure out what is the cannon choice. I guess they may just make both storylines active at once based on different non descript adventurers choosing different sides. I usually enjoy every wow expansion for a month or two and, I did enjoy this one to a degree just compared to legion it didn’t get me as interested.

I hate it. I absolutely hate it.

They made Feral druid just utter dogshit until like a couple weeks ago, but by then the damage is done. I just can't bring myself to struggle to catch up to literally all the other classes.

The game became to easy and to lazy. As many others have stated so many times the game was best during its BC and WOTLK days. With so many changes diminishing so many options of what your character could do, making the grind unsatisfying and the game story has gone in such a crappy direction it is uninspiring to even care what happens anymore.

It has become a milking cow for a company no longer appreciating its player base.

But in real honesty through my eyes - the game just sucks to anyone who was around during its early years. What made the game special: the story, the character decisions, and the challenging game play - it's all gone. Being social doesn't even matter anymore either when the game does the work for you and groups you up in dungeons/raids where you don't have to say a damn thing to anyone.
