    I keep reading it trying to figure out what stands out to people as good and I just can't find it. Unless any kind of level squish is regarded as good at this point.

    Also I chuckle at "soft reboot." A 30 year time skip and basically removing all expansions sounds like a hard reboot that's just missing the 2.

    Finally guessed the expansion right for the first time since MoP.

    As much as it seems fake, I like some of the stuff and some of it makes sense.

    If we're getting a level squish, it would make sense to also bring in other drastic changes related to that (no more faction split, world revamp etc.). And while I don't know if it is gonna be a 15 year timeskip, I know that it's finally time for one for some fresh lore to develop. Some people, including myself, have been wanting a timeskip for the past couple expansions.

    Maybe we should just start an Azshara rumor anyway, no matter how nonsensical it would be.

    I love this leak, and I would love it to happen, the only thing that I dislike is having again 2 factions and no possibility of playing with people of the other faction for raids/dungeons

    People are still automatically dismissing leaks as fake? Haven't y'all learned your lesson by now?

    (I don't know anything but am taking all leaks in completely neutrally this time around.)

    I can only speak for myself but I’d say it’s because while we may have an idea on “big picture” things (such as possible faction unification or level squish or world revamp or time skip) when the leaks start detailing those points it looks very amateur.

    Though I’m sure some people will meme how Blizzard is being very amateur.

    I also think people have already speculated so many different avenues that WoW could go that I’d be hard pressed to find any leak that is actually surprising. Most we see are based off what’s discussed on forums, but did anyone expect “the south seas expansion” to end up like BFA? Or even come close to that?

    I don’t recall but it’s also been a while since the leak season for 8.0 happened.

    We could also have N'zoth win and the next Exp be about us running away and finding a new base to fight back from.

    Given that necessarily most of the "leaks" are wrong, that would be the most logical position, actually. Far less chance of being wrong.

    And the closer we are to Blizzcon, the more "leaks" we will have. Last time we had like 3-4 threads poppin off each day.
    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing...

    I choose not to dismiss or trust the leaks, I feel like that is a far better experience these days. The only things I am willing to trust/dismiss is stuff I can verify which is basically nothing at this point because there haven't been many leaks found through mining except for the fact an 8th expansion is being worked on.

    Seems like there is no repeat of the mistake when they added a Kul'Tiras armor in Legion yet. Not much to go by.

    Only "confirmed" stuff we have is that there will be an expansion and that there will be a level squish.

    Even the level squish I can't personally confirm because I didn't get the survey. That's how skeptical I am this time around.

    I mean, I'd like a complete overhaul myself.

    But I can settle for Dragon Isles

    I don't think it's that bad tbh, and WoW could use a shift from the old H vs A conflict. We'll see I guess, we'll see!

    Honestly, as long as they give me a plausible world revamp I think I'd swallow every pill.

    "Faction pride" exists and I don't think removing factions would be a good thing though. There are several MMORPGs with just one faction and they always felt hollow to me. I am not pro stupid faction war like we've seen in BfA but having two factions with opposing views and agendas is good and healthy imho.

    I'd agree on the fact that it was good and healthy, but now it has grown kind of tired. If there is an opposite faction, which is playable and let's say purely evil... then it might freshen things up.
