After reading this thread, im still not convinced that MOP is any good.
Based on the feedback im seeing around the net id give it a 2/10. Although i havent played it, there is I believe enough info to form a valid opinion.
Graphics are horrible.
World is static and boring.
You havn't played mop? Sorry you opinion is invalid. Please try again, even you're arguments are stupid and all i hear is i hate wow and i don't play it so to justify why i don't play it i must convince everyone that wow is terrible and dead.
From someone who has actually played this expansion and every other one, so far i feel this has been the best expansion to date.
Graphics are amazing , the world looks so good that when i go back to cata zones they look terrible.
Dailies are optional, even raiding heroic bosses i only do certain daily hubs a day so i don't burn out (plus people bitched and moaned for something to do outsite raiding/pvp).
Also i still feel its WAY to early to judge the expansion, right now its great but its still the first tier. I thought Cata was pretty good with the first tier as well so take what people say and this QQ op with a grain of salt.
I don't get it. It's not enough that you hang out here to bash on the game, but now you want to make up fake scores based on no actual experience with the game?

Help control the population. Have your blood elf spayed or neutered.
Be careful about using the t* word, though. You could just as likely get infracted for what you wrote as the OP for this whole thread. Which is one of the problems with MMO-C, IMO. People start bait threads to get people to react in a way which gets them infracted. I see it happen way too often.

Aurust. Dear god. Just quit playing WoW. You've been posting nothing but vitriol for a long time, if you don't like the game anymore, go elsewhere.
Once you go troll, you never reroll. -heard on cynicalbrit.com. Epic.
OP can't address issues specific to the expansion because he's never played it. This is just a generic bash-WoW thread he started under the guise of a critique of an expansion he has no experience with.
1 and 3 are completly in conflict. if you pvp why the hell do you grind dailies for useless pve stuff?
2 and 3 are in conflict. if PVP is imbalanced how the hell can you tell if you call it world of gankcraft and can't defend yourself against some 8-14 years old ganking your leveling alt? you don't have a main like he does?
CRZ is great I hope I get to gank you for your qq.
This expansion has been my favorite so far.
Pandaria as a continent is leagues above BC/northrend and def above the garbage that is cata.
Tons of pve content
PvP is mediocre but that's always been the case aside from the first half of BC.
Profession system is better than wotlk/Cata. BC had a better system.
Leveling speed and dailies just need adjustments.
Even though im having fun with the game, i think this is so far the worst expansion, dungeons are too short and easy, raids just plain suck fights are too straight forward, questing sucks, pvp is more unbalanced than ever. CRZ is the worst thing that has ever been implemented into wow, in my opinion they should simply merge servers. LFR is slowly killing normal mode and hm raiding its making it feel less rewarding since you can get epic gear in lfr anyways. The asian theme is getting old really fast the music blows compared to previous expansions.
Im still having fun with the game but not with the content that came out in this xpac. Oh btw the two new bgs suck too, just like pretty much everything in mop.
Another factor is the gating that goes on. When you are leveling you can quest as much as you want and always get exp toward your next level. Quests just dont all of a sudden stop after you do a few quest lines and reset the next day. So your not limited on how fast you can progress and can go from 85 to 90 in a few days.
Reaching your goal that quickly makes all the boring quests tolerable.
Now if we look at dailys these halt your progression only letting you do a certian amount per day toward leveling whatever faction your trying to gain rep with. So they limit how fast you go from neutral to exhalted. Just like players wouldnt want to have a daily cap on exp gains, players dont want daily caps on rep gains. Players actually want to consume the content blizz gives them because it isnt the content that they like its the rewards. And blizzard is doing a good job of keeping rewards from players this expansion and players dont like it. But why should blizzard dangle a carrot in front of you within arms reach? They want to retain subs. And they know only a miniscul percentage of players would unsub because they dont like dailys. The rest are gonna spend more time in their game so that they can get the rewards they love. And the longer it takes to get those rewards the more players are gonna keep playing.
So basically what im getting at is you have been questing your whole life in WoW. If you dont like questing why are you playing an MMO. Most MMO's have a tone of quests, alot of MMO's are built around quests. If you dont wanna quest stop playing. Quests are part of RPG's deal with it.
That being said i agree that from a raiders perspective i shouldnt be required to do daily quests to gear up for raids. Thats what dungeons should be for. Isnt that why you put dungeon tabards in blizz? because the raiding community hated daily quests and would rather run dungeons for rep? Good job taking that out. Yea i know you dont want ppl consuming your content too fast to you have to put up gate after gate after gate and claim that its because we will complain that theirs too many raids to do but in reality only noobs on forums will post that and most of them are trolls that dont even raid or arnt skilled enough to raid successfully anyway. Last i checked your last good raid tier was the first tier in cata. 3 raids we could go in at anytime. And last i checked it worked out just fine.
Im so happy im not playing WoW anymore because i would hate having to do all those dailies since all i do in the game is raid.

I'd argue that the opinion of someone who makes aggressive claims about their feelings on something despite the fact that they haven't actually tried the thing they are critiquing while simultaneously arguing with people who actually have experienced it is a pretty good example of an invalid opinion.
The only reason there are ever any problems in an expansion is because Kalgan still works for blizz. Fire him and all will be better.
1) Dailies are not mandatory. Personally I only do a few each day just to get 90 charms each week.. You need to do like what, 6-7 dailies a day to get that. And even that is not "mandatory".
2) CRZ is awesome, stop hating. But then again... opinions and all that.
3) This is the only one I agree with you about.
