    Obviously I'm talking about before that was implemented.

    As I said, it varies from server to server. But blacklist was a very real thing. I kept one, and many others pug leaders I knew back then had one, simply to keep people like you out of the groups, to make the whole experience better for the rest of the people joining.

    In terms of systems and types of content available, the game is better now (except for Legion legendaries and titanforging). In terms of feel like an sprawling RPG with a non-linear world, old WoW felt better. Things like world quests are nice and very convenient, but they take away daily hubs, which gave zones new life, introduced new factions, and towns. I miss things like buffs, skill ranks, talent points every level, etc. All of those things were removed for convenience which on one hand is nice, but it makes the game feel less like an RPG. I also miss having more raids with fewer bosses (or those raids with one boss), rather than single raid instances we spend six months in. I also miss the systems they had in the game that combated heavy-handed RNG like reforging and justice/valor point gear.

    Plain and simple the Newness and Wonder that you got when you first stepped foot on Azeroth and realized just how big it really was and how small you felt. Now you just go onto Youtube and someone tells you exactly what to do and how to get there the fastest way.

    Now everything old is memorized and everything new is datamined and analyzed before it is even released.
    Yeah, I think this is mostly it.

    I think the actual game is better these days, but endgame isn't really endgame, its the whole game and that is a little unsatisfying.
    I would prefer to spend more time investing into characters and being excited to reach the next step, instead of rushing to max level, but I understand why they don't want to force players through dozens of hours of leveling.

    Ever considered that being on a blacklist is the reason you didn't run into them?

    Never took me any time to get groups, never was on ignore from anyone, blacklist didn't exist.

    I understand that your autistic fantasy blacklist is what you use to further your arguments, but 9/10 times a "blacklist" was a myth. I have been in guilds with serial ninjas that were notorious throughout the game (one even has a urbandictionary entry) and none of us ever had issue with anything group content related.

    Blacklist is in your head.

    Before group finder blacklist was a thing on many realm forums and your opinion doesn't change that. Not everyone used them but they were a thing. All you need is love.

    ITT: "You can share your opinions. They just need to be exactly my opinions." That's also how you come off to others. I do think you're maybe projecting a bit on the autism? I do hate how it's increasingly becoming synonymous with retard in its use. Mental illness is nothing to make fun off. Get help, you're not alone.
    If you know the candle is fire, then the meal was cooked a long time ago.

    Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, impaired verbal and non-verbal communication.

    Most of the kids here are bereft of social skils.

    I'm an asshole, but i know how to be social.

    No datamining. We didn't know what secrets the world did or didn't hold.

    No flying, the world didn't feel small because you couldn't AFK fly across it in 2 minutes.

    Nostalgia, it was for many, our first MMO, our first experience.

    For many of us who were younger, we had way more free time to just play and have fun.

    Any other answers are rose-colored glasses, nostalgia fueled misrepresentations. You were ALWAYS treated as a hero in end-game, not some nobody. We killed Onxyia and Nefarian and were celebrated in the capitol for it. It wasn't the group finder, it was becoming a huge problem and wasn't fun to hang around a summoning stone while a friend flew to Stormwind or Org to spam the LFG chat, and it was even worse by WotLK. PUGing through it was a huge highlight of WotLK.

    Don't listen to idiots who don't understand why their experience was better. The devs were experimenting and trying things. There were unpopular additions and changes in Vanilla and BC, not just now.

    The major problem modern WoW has is this stupid systems that occupy much of the game (Garrisons/Order Halls/Artifacts) which are annoying, enhanced so by the fact we know they're going to be useless next expansion.
