    He actually believes BfA is a success according to his Forbes article.

Most of the time it's because his opinion doesn't line up with the opinions of threads he posts in and because the mods of this forum are most of the time a joke and just instantly ban people instead of actually looking at the reason.

    Well... if you are just balancing the books it made profit so by definition as much as it sucks it was a commercial success.

    Nope, it was never this bad. It's a fact, you can't argue with all this negativity everywhere. If you can't see I don't know what to tell you

    In fairness the lack of player agency was always the problem with WOW as an MMO. Of all the MMOs out there WOW has always had the least amount of agency. For example, talent trees in WOW were far simpler and less elaborate than many other MMOs of the time. The WOW talent tree basically only allowed you one option at a time out of 3 as you onlocked a talent tier. There wasn't much to it. The only reason that Vanilla gets the praise it does is because leveling from 1 to 60 and exploring all the zones gave players a sense of agency, especially when it came to gearing. You could target specific gear you wanted based on quest rewards or dungeon drops as you leveled so you felt that at some level you had some control over your progression.... Not to mention one of the other things that WOW always benefitted from is art direction. The cartoony nature of the game as a direct descendant of the RTS was much more pleasing than the clunky attempts at realism in other MMOs. By being cartoony and stylish it always had the advantage of avoiding the uncanny valley (uncanny chasm) of other games.

    The problem was that as time went on, these problems only became more obvious as new expansions came along and the leveling experience got shorter and newer game play mechanics got added for end game "options". But the problem came after WOD because prior to that the main end game content was still dungeons and raids. And up until cataclysm many of those dungeons still had mechanics that mattered. Outside of that the only other end game content was dailies and rep grinds which for most still gave a sense of player agency because they provided certain guaranteed rewards once you reached a certain reputation. And nobody minded these grinds because most of the rewards were purely optional. The order of the cloud serpent, the Shao Pan, the Tillers and so forth all were not required for progression for the most part. So players still could "play their way" through the game at their own pace, doing the content relative to what they wanted to progress on and spend time on.

    Then came WOD and Legion. With WOD they added the "auto-accept zone dailies" or at the time called "bonus objectives" which represented a change from "optional rep based quest grinds" to something that was almost mandatory with a reminder in your face that you couldn't ignore. And this presented the beginning of the change to the current model of World Quests no longer simply being dailies that unlocked optional rewards not mandatory for progression. This was the main selling point of legion that you could always "progress" your character through these "near mandatory" world quests which were required to advance your characters progression. These were no longer "optional" but required to unlock the newly added progression of artifact power. And in BFA all these things came to a head because no longer are artifact power gains noticible as they were in legion, leading to the feeling of less player agency than before.

    Not to mention on top of all of that, they introduce an expansion based on "faction war" but PVP is absent from almost all of it, which again goes back to a lack of player agency, which has always been there, but now is more noticable than ever because of all the other game play changes made over time. Warfronts rotating over time means no matter what you do you cant win and you cant lose. So what is the point. Somewhere in this system should be the concept of territorial control like they had way back in the Burning Crusade and Halaa. If you attack a town your faction should own it until the other faction takes it back. None of this rotating control nonsense. But that is a side effect of removing PVP servers and adding phasing and sharding to the game. So there is no server identity anymore, so you cant do territorial control combat in the game based on fixed server populations.....

    /preach brother, the game is easily in its worst state and I still have a soft spot for wow. Some fans just don't want to be told that the game is in a bad state.

    Nah I missed out on a frustrating time gated rep grind designed to extend my sub length. If you liked it cool. I didn't because of terrible zone design and no possiblity of immersion due to time gating. If you are going to make a story I should be able to play through all of it in one session or at least consecutive sessions. If I have to way days or weeks in between guess what. It's not going to be enjoyable and will be quickly forgotten.

    This whole time gating turns reps from something you can expierence into a daily chores you must do so that you can return to enjoying yourself. Combine that with the most difficult to navigate zone I've ever been in, no flying, and roaming elites that will fucking wreck you and no thanks.

    Time gating a story is bad. Boring shore is a good example of this and why content put forth since then has been utterly boring.
