Anyone could have and did predict that there would be negative response here no matter what Blizzard did, and there was negative response. In fact, the fact that it isn't overly negative speaks a lot that the expansion isn't bad. I mean, I haven't seen any "im quitting wowz!!!1!" threads yet.
The fel blood has to happen, all the corruption of the orcs has to happen and the old story has to happen. It's an expansion to go back in time so the future can stay the same cause there not going to redo the current content.
That kind of expansion makes my stomach turn. It was good for a dungeons or a singular raid but an entire expansion based on it just so they can reuse some old characters and lore.
I'm just not sold yet.

I would just like to add that while I am excited for a new expansion to World of Warcraft, I was in fact underwhelmed with the reveal. I kept waiting for the new race/class and there was none. I wondered what the new technology would be, and saw nothing. It looks like a big patch to me.

Free-To-Play is the future.
But because there are no new classes or races it's "underwhelming". The reaction is as predictable as it is boring.
Also, I never said you shouldn't post nor did I ever try to stop someone from posting. I am smart enough to know forums will always be overly negative towards everything and I can't change that culture. It's why I don't post that much in the first place.
waiting classes talking before giving any opinion tho , beside HEROES OF STORM !!!!! screw wow
We'll see what the upcoming period will reveal about the game and maybe I can get excited.
1) MoP was pushing the story forward, so I was expecting something to push the story even further into gigantic events (Argus, K'aresh, Nathrezim homeworld, N'zoth + Azshara, Burning Legion + Sargeras, Fallen Titans+Rebuild Final Titan). Now, can someone please explain me how we move forward by going backwards in story-telling?
2) And why the map of "Draenor" is EXACTLY the same like OUTLAND in TBC? Did that world explode to pieces or not? So... what is the difference of Draenor and Outland? Just some flying rocks and jungles? Where is the new world feeling? Is this again a Cataclysm revamp or something?
3) Garrison feature is a guild city? Or just another farm-like that instead of growing crops I will "grow" NPCs to do stuff for me, which is implied atm on the blizz website?
I am so confused for this expansion as I was never before for any other...
Well, it didn't actively make me angry or disgusted like the MoP trailer did. Does that mean it's better or worse?
"In today’s America, conservatives who actually want to conserve are as rare as liberals who actually want to liberate. The once-significant language of an earlier era has had the meaning sucked right out of it, the better to serve as camouflage for a kleptocratic feeding frenzy in which both establishment parties participate with equal abandon" (Taking a break from the criminal, incompetent liars at the NSA, to bring you the above political observation, from The Archdruid Report.)
I'm really glad there are threads like this... saves me the headache from ever going back to WoW. I just don't understand why some players want WoW to become a worse game. From their perspective, they think it'll work, but they give no logical thought into how the new class/race/feature will affect the game. At this point, the only thing blizzard can add is races. If they had another class, you might aswell ask blizzard to make one class and based on the way you play, you gain different abilties... yea that's an entirely new system, but they might as well since class diversity is pretty much gone. I used to log into WoW during TBC and smile thinking about how unique my class was. I knew melee loved me for windfury totem, they loved me for my strength totem etc. I actually served a purpose in a raid because I had abilities no other class had. Like w/ shadow priests and being mana batteries, you never see that shit now. "We need kings!" Uh we have a druid... "We need bloodlust!" Uh we have a hunter...
I'll leave WoW to those that currently enjoy it, because it seems that those same players don't give a damn about the game and don't really care what direction it goes in. I fought for WoW during cata... I forced myself to play it, trying to find the light in the game, but it was gone. Rehashed PvE content, broken PvP seasons due to MMR glitching, new players begging for features that would literally ruin the game.
Most likely the wisest Enhancement Shaman.
