    Some people also need to learn '>' means greater than.

    Vanilla > Wrath > TBC > MoP > Cata.


    Why is it everyone assumes people who didn't like tbc never played it?


    Mmo-cs hardon for tbc is getting really tiring.

    Well, we don't know what those people did in ...say..TBC. If you didn't raid, was there THAT much to do on a daily base? You couldn't even easily get into heroics, you needed to grind out REVERED with a faction attached to a dungeon and then the heroics needed people you trusted. From my experience the only sort of Puggish raid experience was eventually Kara.

    Sooooo.....with much much lesser raiders, there were like 95% who didn't raid. Wouldn't be surprised if some of those consider TBC the worst.

    The thing that surprises me is that WotLK gets the least votes for worst expansion. Not because I dislike WotLK - rather because it got so much hate on this forum. But ofc the "poster base" changes as everything else does.

    So, in short: the internet.

    I'm gonna go off-poll and say Vanilla. Yep, that's right, the original game content was SHIT. Cataclysm vastly improved most of it with its revamp, made it not 'gouge out my eyeballs' bad to level in. Burning Crusade is right behind it, that content is so moldy and craptastic now it sticks out like a swollen boil on the game's ass compared to the more refined questing seen in Wrath and onwards.

    Pandaria easily. Heroic 5 mans becoming so useless and so uninteresting. Daily quest grind is the only thing we have together with dumbed down and uninteresting raids that means nothing now. No tactics in either is needed, no focus, no nothing, no need for others. People moaning and crying wanting to play an MMO as a single player game.

    Or you can take that persons opinion at face value and believe them rather than try to belittle it?

    Vanilla had some huge downpoints but I still enjoyed it as it was new to me and I had a great guild and group of friends. I could not go back to that playstyle or state of the game though.

    Agreed. And the hardon for Wrath is getting stronger, despite the huge amounts of QQ going on while it was current content. People even QQ'ed about Ulduar!

    you misunderstood the topic of the thread.
    What is the weakest expansion? not which you enjoy the least, but what is the weakest, or another word the least value expansion.
    ragardless the fact that vanilla is not an expansion, it can NEVER qualified as the weakest. Vanilla had

    - 9 new classes - (duh, there was nothing before) no other expansion ever add 9 classes at once
    - 60 levels
    - 8 races - no other expansion ever add 8 races at once
    - 20 new zones
    - 30 new dungeons
    - 4 new tier of raid
    - 9 new professions
    Well you get the point, a complete whole new world.

    No expansion can compare in term of content. how can that be the weakest? the only way you would consider vanilla having the lest amount of new content is that you rush through it.

    Again, i think you misunderstood the topic.

    actually that's completely wrong. most of the content from WoW is a complete cut and dry paste from WC3. hell we STILL use images from wc3 in MoP. and stormwind guards? lol.

    saying that vanilla on it's own was this spanking new game is completely wrong as a lot of the content wasn't even made at the time. that being said content != fun. vanilla had some really broken as fuck mechanics that nobody wanted. i think if Blizzard reverted MoP back to vanilla standards (lol pally buffs) the majority of the playerbase would unsub because of how fucking awful it was

    op simply asked in your opinion what was the weakest overall expansion, if you count vanilla as some sort of expansion of wc3 roc/tft then i'm in agreement. vanilla had the worst balance, the worst gameplay, and some awful design philosophies that i'm glad we got rid of (the 3 hour BRD trips were sooooo fun)

    Id say the worst xpacs would be Vanilla& Burning Crusade...why? Because they didn't get lucky with their release dates. Anyone remember what happened in Nov of 05? Well, Xbox 360 came out. You had cool things like Gamerscore achievements, Xbox live, and a myriad of games where promised to be released in next few months.
    Same thing with TBC, games like Gears of War/Halo3/ Cod4/bioshock simply overshadowed them...2006-2008 was pretty much THE year of consoles. And I am glad they did, does anyone remember what a pathetic excuse for pvp was burning crusade?


    Plus playing WoW was frowned upon at that time...when I told a few of my close apprentices....dude, do you play WoW? He said...bro you are a f@ggot. Go back to playing Diablo 2 but I am not touching that game and especially if its sub based. When I told him I preordered an Xbox 360 he complimented me and said he'd come over more often...maybe because he just wanted to use me since he wanted to play on the console. Now this isn't a Xbox360 praise site , but well, WoW was out for a year, it was old and it was getting repetitive. Plus, what do you think more fun is for a 13 year old kid. Slaying dragons or screaming though a mic how bad does his team suck and what they are a bunch of no good bundle of firesticks. And you had Gamerscore..something WoW didn't implement until 3 1/2 years later
    . To top all that off I wasn't allowed to raid because I was too young, no one wanted to pvp with me since I was too young (notice the general stereotype) and I was also playing alliance....sorry to break anyone's nostaligia, but this is what it was.If you were still TBCing around, you missed some of the best years of console gaming.Can't space because my phone at work sucks.

    I didn't think blizzard could make a bad expansion. Then mop came out. I don't like it.

    I personally would vote Wrath the worst but Cata was so bad at endgame, I couldn't ignore it. Since over 70% have voted Cata, which wasn't a big surprise, I'm more curious what the vote would be without Cata.

    Cataclysm by far, but I still wouldn't call it a bad game. Bad relative to the other wow expansions but not bad in comparison to other games.

    I think it really does speak volumes
    Yeah, Cataclysm sucked and WOTLK was Awesome!!

    The worst game(not sure you can call it expansion) was by far Vanilla. Then Cata. Then TBC, Then MoP, Then Wrath

    Keep in mind I have probably been playing as long as anybody, started when game came out, sure I have taken some breaks here and there.

    For the most part I am guessing the people that like Vanilla either
    -Never played Vanilla just heard how great it was
    -Didn't have a life, and only played WoW, because truthfully, you could only play WoW if you played Vanilla, considering it took 1 year to go from level 53-54.(Kidding)
    -Forgot what the game play was actually like and how broke it was
    -Forgot what a time sink the game was, rewarded no skill, the philosophy back then was, play a lot and get rewarded. That's it.

    Mostly the game has improved each expansion some cool thinks they have added.
