MoP isnt over yet, or did I miss something?
MoP > WLK > TBC > Cata > Vanilla
While I had loads of fun in vanilla, looking back at it without all the nostalgia, it was a pretty basic game and lacked a lot of good features that we got in the last few years.
Current pc (Dec 2007)
CPU Intel Q6600 @2.4GHz | Cooler Zalman CNPS8000 | MOBO Gigabyte P35-DS3L | Memory Corsair 4x 2GB DDR2-1GHz
GPU MSI GTS 450 1GB | Storage Samsung SpinPoint T166 (320GB) | PSU Chieftec CFT-650-14C | Case MS-Tech LC-402 Blue
TBC -> MoP -> Vanilla -> Cata = Wrath (Wrath slightly behind Cata because I can grind my way through Cata, but I can't even log into any characters who've reached the Wrath levels)
I never played the original Warcraft games, so my interest in the Scourge and Arthas was pretty low to begin with. What bits and pieces got shoved down my throat during Wrath pretty much turned me off of the expansion forever. It didn't help that the voice distortions were EVERYwhere, made so many different NPC personalities sound too much alike.
I guess the Burning Legion's threat felt more like a threat, while the Scourge's threat felt more like flirting. Cata at least introduced a lot of really neat pre-60 content, and didn't hammer away at a dead horse throughout (which could also be described as having a very disjointed story). MoP's just been basically fun, not too painful to level alts through, and has some variance in the tone of the stories told - it's not a complete downer from start to finish, it's been a while since they touched on that.

I feel like this expansion was okay but was very different to what wow is, or better, used to be like.
I felt very distant because its complete new story (apart from soo which rocks) and i didn't feel one moment in thecexpansion that i knew what i was doing. The race pandarian for me is not appealing, i like the race but i stikk dislike that they are playable as that means those pandas will still be with us in alk coming expansions and i dont like that. Im kinda a conservative guy, i like being stuck to the lore from the books but i understand blizzard needs to explore new stuff. I felt closest to lich king and bc. Cata was okay and cata did the needed things.
Mop is just too weird for me, also the reason i stopped raiding very heavily. Being dominated by dailies ruined the wow experience.
Sorry but this is the expansion i dislike most. I have py hopes up for the burning legion expansion that is rumoured to come, which will get me back in to it i think.
TBC/MOP > Cata > WotLK.
Classic is not an expansion so not including it.
If they can pull another expansion like MOP I'll be quite happy.
Everyone has so much to say

The CotD came back with a force and began to infect EK and Kalimdor and the attacks on the cities etc. Necropolises were down from NR and there was the full scale attack on EP via Ebon Hold. The full scale attacks on Org and SW were the point where we geared up for war and pushed them back to NR and decided that it was time to take the battle there. I mean the whole Pre WotLK events were so much larger than the Pre BC events.

He was saying he played for 2-3 months. He INSTANTLY decided one day to quit after those months. It wasn't a should I shouldn't I moment that lasted weeks. It was "enough of this I'm done".

Gonna stop you there and say yes it was handed to you. You had to do about 3-5 extra tasks outside of what you were already doing. It was handed to you compared to some other legendaries. It changed 0 fights in raiding. It made it to where to join any serious guild you must have it because it was available to everyone. This legendary was perhaps the worst idea with the best intentions.Cloak: Honestly, you can call it a welfare legendary, but I don't, because it does actually take time to get it, and if you played from the beginning, it spanned across the entire expansion, that is not something handed to you, much better than random 0.1% drops. +
Next legendary? Limit it to 1 player to get a drop per boss but any class. That way it removes the 2 unfair things that normal legendaries and this current one have done: It's open to everyone and it's not given out en masse.
I started in wotlk wich i think was the best expansion i have played. Cata was a disaster but with MoP Blizzard really stepped it up again!
That's 2-3 months to make the decision. Not instant. He may have finally arrived at the conclusion "instantly", but it still took him up to 3 months to get there. Don't twist the words.He was saying he played for 2-3 months. He INSTANTLY decided one day to quit after those months. It wasn't a should I shouldn't I moment that lasted weeks.

In terms of atmosphere/raiding/fun-ness->> MOP
In terms of lore---->Wotlk (big arthas fan and warcraft frozen throne so may be biased)
best pvp fun---> TBC/Wrath
PVP has been atrocious in MOP, the worst by far from any expansion.....absolutely horrible with instant ccs, constant lock-downs/stuns/ bursty as hell OP classes.
I'm a big pvp fan but my god i unsubbed from how unplayable it as at the moment; they need to separate pvp and pve buffs/nerfs and it would finally fix everything!
bring back Wrath style PVP!
flawed poll is flawed.. it assumes we played every expansion. And if it assumes we didn't, then the results are meaningless.
Free-To-Play is the future.
it`s hard for me ranking the expansions on any way. i liked the way raiding was back in vanilla and tbc, because people weren't that focused on perfomance and everyone helped each other without thinking about personal progression. on the other hand though this difficulty increase with each expansion (you could say you just now the game better) is fun as well.
the raid i enjoyed the most until now was ulduar. you have to note that i never was a hardcore raider but for the first introduction of hardmode raiding i was quite seccuessful in ulduar and story and architecure was quite cool.
as i have struggled finding a raid in near complete pandaria and all patches in between were a mess it's hard for me to call MoP good. Although you had too much to do i still think the dailies in the 5.0 patch were the best.
So i would go with the following:
TBC > Vanilla > Wotlk > MoP > cata
All being very close (how ever only if you take in my favriote content of each expansion). There are always everywhere downtimes.
