Take the Serena challenge
the heroics are extremely underwhelming. why make content that does not last?
and gear is a major part of MMOs so dont come to me with that challenge mode BS
I have begun to wonder how much the "red and blue" (horde/alliance) in Warcraft model after the "red and blue" (republicans/democrats) in real life, and how closely some events in the geo-political world have been mirrored in WoW.
Its my least favourite expansion so far sadly. Oh well...
I like some things they did but overall I'm disappointed.
There is nothing wrong with WoW's graphical fidelity. :/
MoP looks great.
'Lord Sargeras, sweep your molten fist through this world, so that it may be reborn in flames and darkness!'
'So the light's vaunted justice has finally arrived.'
'Boldly said. But I remain...unconvinced.'
- Pet battles
- Lore all through the world in the form of objectives that rewards you reputation and achievement points.
- Farming mini game that's well done and fun to do in the downtime.
- Increased the distance you can see.
- Higher level of detail in the world.
- Ground textures are higher res.
- Lighting system and shadows were improved.
- More control over texture blending.
- Ambient occlusion (SSAO) was added.
- Cross server zones.
Now lets talk about that last point for a moment. Yes its a bit flawed right now and needs some changes probably. But lets talk about the innovation behind it. Its in my opinion the biggest innovation in MMORPG history. Since without loading screens it simply switches your server to group you with other people. Without you even noticing it, that is something no MMORPG out their is able to pull off.
Yup elitest jerks was such a lovely site with its cookie builds that really made you feel like a special snow flake. And about that last sentence you wrote there i dont believe that at all..-The talent system is so sad and basic it's not even funny I used to feel as if I were playing with lego blocks now its mega blocks. Everything is so basic it's not the same WoW im used to where I sat down and figured out good talent combinations unlike majority of players I didn't surf the web for the most viable spec
Not unless you wanted to be the optimal player, you would have done research.
Do research you would find out their is more to it. And even then he wanted more control something that is now pushing him over the edge. Making him do things that are no longer honorable and im glad we are getting rid of that "thing".-The story is not epic in the slightest I am not fighting a demon hunter, I am not fighting a lich king, I am not fighting an ancient dragon I am fighting a faction leader.......and the worst part is I actually thought garrosh was awesome and loved how they developed him you saw him grow and now hes gone all apeshit /golfclap. I don't get it I really don't if I remember correctly he scolded a horde soldier for bombing a village saying how it was not the honorable way and now ********* SPOILERS************ he makes an atom bomb and drops it on an alliance base....thought he was against this kind of tactic???? this is just dumb
Another thing you didnt do any research for did you? They are actively looking at ways how to improve them and they are all in R&D its even on the front page >.>-Character graphics being so old. Seriously I play this game for one thing and one thing only MY CHARACTER and I want him to be awesome looking I want to be able to walk around without a helmet. I think its so silly blizz keeps coming up with the excuse o we don't want people to miss those old polygons that look like complete crap give me a break and give us new models already I'm sorry but they make more than enough cash to incorporate this.
Awh this argument its for childeren did you even play mop? im going to go with no.. and you havnt done any zones or are the person that doesnt care for story anyways. In which case you have no rights to complain even. If you would read the quest pay attention you would get a way deeper feeling of story and lore in MoP beyond you staring at a rabbit which is not childish just blizzard being goofy. Something they always have.It just seems like they marketed this expansion for children and tried to make a quick buck and don't be like but it has mature themes!!!! please bambi had mature themes most kid shows do. I mean come on they spent time on pet battles!?!?!!? which is so boring they could have implemented ogres as a race for horde instead of a lazy shared race or again gave us newer models anyways that's my 2 cents any other warcraft fan feel the same? Anyways if you have fun with the game by all means have fun just saying the game to me has fallen off the map for good.
In the end i find your post "hillarious" it comes across as a rant and not negative opinions. You simply state stuff without backing it up. Or providing ways you would like to improve it. The whole post is just a flame fest from an angry person, who A either loves to *fill in the word* or B bought the game and hates it so much he wants others to confirm it.
Next time try to write something constructive. I mean seriously you didnt even list one point you wished to improve or how you would improve it.
Besides this you also clearly showed lack or research from your end, you didnt even try to find information that is readily available (even on the front page of this site).

Pet battles is pokemon only different there is no pet battle league "Yet" and it has different monsters *then again pokemon is up to around like 500 if not more now so they mite be the same*.
but hey that's just my Opinion
Edit: To make it Innovative they needed to do something different with it and they didn't its WOW's version of pokemon. "Gotta get them all Wowe'mon*

They didnt just plug in a red cartridge and suddenly pokemon were in WoW. But this by far isnt the only new thing lol.
I think my disappointment was inevitable as I've been off to play newer games who have innovated within the genre. Comming back to wow is like getting smacked in the face with a deadfish....
dont get me wrong, its not bad, as wow expansions go its pretty good, a massive improvement on cata right off the bat.
But I am having trouble getting used to the wow wway of doing things again, resenting other players because of mob tagging and shared quest items (got ranted at earlier as I jumped into help someone and tagged some mobs....my instinct is now to jump in....must learn not to be helpful in wow....). Static combat (I keep hitting my dodge key and wondering why I dont move!) and so on.
No, as a wow expansion its good, as an MMO.....it feels dated. Thats not to say it cant be fun, but I'm not sure how long I can ignore the really antiquated mechanics of wow.
O Everquest II added a LFG system....its been done that's not Innovative. wow barely even changed it right down to the battles and how they work is the same. Only difference in the battles is u can't use 6 or 7 *w/e the max was* but it plays out just the same. level stops at 25.
Me personally i feel pet battles is a water down version of Pokemon battles just a really bad rip off.
The game is fine, is it much more different now then it was 5 years ago? Not so much. The only big problem with WoW now is that it's running on a very old engine, and blizz har squeezed out all they can from it /=
I personally do not like the new revamp they have done. I don't even remember what talents I chose, mainly because they no longer matter. This is what Blizz wanted, I just don't understand why /=
