    I don't see how it CAN be the best expansion.
    Numbers..Numbers..Numbers

    Maybe play the game and find out from EXPERIENCE

    maybe it's because it's 2 different people posting 2 different opinions?

    Unless you are just looking at the pandas
    Maybe in the future I'll flesh out some philosophy on theme, but for now, one thing that makes me cringe is that this storyline could just as easily have been told without Pandaria and without Pandaren.

    Actually in some cases it's exactly the same person. I won't call anybody out but yea they hold opinions that aren't contradictory in the extreme.

    In MoP you have endless stuff to do.
    quantity =/= quality
    For people who do not enjoy any or most of the things you listed, it is not the best expansion. Any other opinions you would like help seeing the other side of? Favorite color perhaps?

    I did. Unsubed from it even faster than I did in cataclysm. Was bored in record time. Many others will be I feel and the more the better frankly. The developers will get their heads out of their asses and do something better. In the end people like you will probably support them anyway so it's win win.

    It helps to have a peaceful place and war comes to it to further show the effects a war has on the land. However you can't pleas everyone

    I don't pvp anymore, there are various degrees of broken, and it's always been so, so no matter how extremely broken it is atm, if you're surprised or upset I don't know where you've been the past six years.

    Overall, though, I think it's a great expansion *launch* as the rest of the expansion could suck major donkey balls if they put as much effort into each raid as they did with DS, which I'm pretty sure was designed by the dev's children on bring your kids to work day. There are certainly more things to do but not everything appeals to everyone. I've actually been playing less so I don't get burned out, so I don't do much atm outside of raiding, the new dailies and capping valor. (used to be an altoholic, I currently really don't care about alts). I understand people not playing because it's the same old thing with a new skin, because it pretty much is (with a few new features), but as for the people that think it all-out sucks compared to other expansions, I really can't agree.

    I played it, way to make wild false assumptions.
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.

    oddly enough I tweeted something very similar to ghost crawler and got a response that explains much of their philosophy for this expansion and why it simple cannot be the best.

    @Ghostcrawler Do you want people to be entertained or do you want people to grind? For many the two are mutually exclusive.

    Do you wake up in the morning and say "Today is the day to be bitter of a game I no longer play and bitch on it's forums"? Just because the developers are no longer designing their game for your enjoyment doesn't mean they have their heads in their ass and are putting out terrible content.

    Yea because none of it was rewarding enough for me to do. Being bored because you don't like what's being offered to you is WORSE than being bored because theirs to little of what you loved doing. At least in the latter I enjoyed myself. In the former I abandoned the game so fast because everything was so god damned slow and nothing rewarded me enough.

    Do you wake up in the morning and say "today is the day to be bitter about someone posting on a forum for an opinion that I can't do anything about anyway" The developers never designed the game for my enjoyment. They have simple turned in a direction I don't like.

    I already argued with him in the "QQ wow is dead" thread as I'm calling it. He calls the players blind but doesn't look at himself.

    If you don't play wow, why are you even here ?

    It's like me going to the Tera forums, bashing it for the hell of it and getting people angry.

    I call you blind because that not what that other thread is about. Your just so god damned hyper sensitive that you can't accept any slight criticism and furthermore you need threads like this one to cheer lead to make you feel better. Look I can say lots of good things about mists. It's just not enjoyable for me.

    Right... cause others cannot enjoy what you don't. Pathetic...

    If it's simply them turning into a direction to something you don't like then how is it them having their heads in their ass and doing a bad job?

    It would really further this discussion if you gave reasons and arguments instead of just naysay...but whatever...

    So, in short: the internet.
