    MOP, horrible xpac with terrible design decisions...

    So now that the glitter has worn off.... Im starting to think that MOP may be the worst xpac ever, even worse than cata.

    A list of terrible issues.

    1) Daily quests. Forced repetitive boring gameplay.
    2) CRZ. World of gankcraft, and ruins smaller server communities while adding none of the benefits of being on a larger server.
    3) PVP is a complete disaster.

    I just dont see how so many people like this xpac.

    *** EDIT*** I do not play WOW, so please stop telling me how to play (play on pve server, dailies are optional etc.)

    My final score for this xpac is a 2/10 ( a pretty fair assessment imo , and based on things that im reading I WILL NOT be recommending it to my friends.

    1. You don't have to do them.
    2. Avoid CRZ zones.
    3. PVP has always been imbalanced. As long as there are different classes it will remain imbalanced.

    Yeah, ok.
    What are we discussing again? The same topic as yesterday and the day before I guess?

    1. There is always a grind in each expansion. You think this one is bad?
    2. If you didn't want to be ganked you shouldn't have went on a PvP server.
    3. PvP is never balanced.

    CRZ = huge desaster . Absolutly hate them .

    Brawler guild invites depending of the quantity of gold you have = horrible decision.

    1. its not forced u have the option of not doing them, u dont need to spam every single daily everyday in order to keep up with charms just something to do... i think its a great idea
    2.completely agree about the crz just ruins leveling experience and makes it impossible to farm some low level mats
    3.ye pvp has allways been kinda........... lets just say not balanced

    And all that helps the game, how, especially #3?

    1.) You dont have to do them all at once. I focused on 1 rep at a time, and even in a raiding guild thats ok.

    2.) You could either avoid CRZ zones or NOT play on a pvp server. Or move to one of the smaller PVE servers.

    3.) PvP has always been terrible. If you want a PVP environment, you might wanna go somewhere else. WoW has never been able to pride itself on its PvP environment.

    I know you never ever played MoP to give these statements yourself. I recognize your signature; you've hated on the expansion since it's been announced. As far as I'm concerned, you just searched the forums for common criticisms to parrot and are trying to amplify them.

    Anytime someone complains about long rep grinds, I figure they must have ignored or forgotten about Netherwing Ledge. I remember doing Netherwing for a good 30 days to hit exalted or the like (Albeit, with the extra eggs). These rep grinds are mostly a joke compared to that. I'm not saying that it makes rep grinding 'okay because of how it was in BC' but... getting multiple things to Revered within a week or so isn't really all that bad these days.

    Well at least there is hope for you - sounds like your blinders might have started falling off.

    No seriously - different strokes for different folks. I guarentee you that your list of 3 things you hate about this x-pac there are 1 million wow players who when asked to list their 3 favorite things about this x-pac would be your same list.

    Yarr.

    People just can't understand other people sometimes.

    It's like how the people who now hate the game don't understand how so many still love it, and vice versa.

    Ok thanks for your opinion. I am going to go make a new thread about my opinion now.

    Probably cause there is no CRZ in pandaria at the moment.

    I lvled a monk all the way up to 85 (not started on Pandaria yet, as my net is utter crap). I had no problems with CRZ at any time. Some other people ran past me now and then, and I saw some people who took some of the mobs I needed for a quest. In other words, what you should be able to expect from CRZ. The whining has gone way out of proportions over CRZ when its hardly noticeable.

    I'm not a fan of the CRZ. I understand the purpose and it works well, just not to my liking.
    As for the rest of the Expac, I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

    I've noticed an increase of players, but never as much as other people make it seem. Maybe it's just my server, but with CRZ, the world is about as populated as my server's world was early-mid Wrath.

    3) PVP is a complete disaster.

    I just dont see how so many people like this xpac.
    1: People always complained about dailies. Perhaps not as much as now, but they always have done.

    2: People complained that servers were dead. Now that they tried to fix it and openly said there's some technical issues still, people claim CRZ killed servers. You can't have your cake and eat it.

    3: People have always complained about PVP in the here and now. But remember how good Cataclysm PVP was? Or Wrath? Or TBC? Or Vanilla? No, i don't. I just remember a bunch of whining bastards who said PVP was broken all the fucking time.

    That's not to say your complaints aren't valid, but don't make out like it's always been happy happy funtime. It's always been a case of the community bitching and whining about everything, and then using nostalgia to try and make their point seem more valid.
