    For me, they can add all they want to BFA, but I'd still pick WOD. Why? because I actually ENJOYED my classes back then. I tried every single class this expansion desperately searching for one that I found fun because I no longer enjoyed my main of 11 years (hunter, I liked ranged survival, it's been downhill since legion but at least in legion MM was passable for me, also Hati :3). The best time I've ever had with my hunter was in WoD, meaning that's one of the top expansions for me regardless of all of its obvious shortcomings.

    WOD was the issue of loving my class with not enough to do.

    BFA is the issue of loads of stuff to do, but I don't enjoy playing any of the classes enough to want to do any of it.

    I've never stayed subbed for an entire expansion since MoP, but I've never unsubbed faster than I did in bfa. I was ready to quit after the first week.

    The beta for BFA was the first beta that killed my hype for an expansion's launch instead of raised it, and I've played every beta since wotlk.

    While Cata had a larger amount of content than WoD I still consider it the worst so far, but even in Cata and WoD I bought the expansion and played sometime, in BfA outside of beta and free trial I haven´t even considered getting the expansion and by the current state of the game and future content that has been promised I will skip this one completely.

    My absolute best memory of character progression was playing my healing priest in Cata.

    At the start of the expansion I was disc but I switched to Holy when disc was really bad. And I had no mana! None. It was something like 5 casts of greater heal = oom.

    My rotation was optimized for minimal mana which sometimes meant chain casting heal and jumping to interrupt if not needed. It was brutal. I basically never used flash heal.

    I saved up and bought the dark moon trink, which gave me like 20% more spirit, and the valor point one which was another 20%. Every time this happened I got a bit more powerful and I could be slightly more aggressive using my spells. Then I got the 4 piece bonus which was another 20% spirit but also slightly changed my rotation. Disc was buffed and I started swapping based on what seemed best. It was great. I also got to experiment with new abilities - barrier for disc and chakras for holy.

    Compare this to what I experienced in BFA as guardian. Nothing changed at all as I geared up. The numbers kinda went up but usually that coincided with the number requirement going up so it all felt the same. There’s just nothing there.

    I'm curious what MMO-C thinks. What's worse? BFA or WoD?

    For me: WoD still is bad even though BFA is getting closer and closer to it.
    No need. My thread already settled this.

    A great many announced plans were just abandoned for no obvious reason, other than they couldn't be fucked. The fact that it only got two raiding tiers after taking forever past Orgrimmar to arrive, and forever to arrive at Legion, just made everything even worse.

    So long as BfA doesn't do that, it cannot drop below Warlords.
    I quit full time raiding in WoD, so lack of raid tiers, though there was 3 different raids, doesn't make or break WoD for me. Whether raiding or not, it's about stuff to do, WoD gave me stuff to do, and the Garrisons specifically where not a let down, but a surprise enjoyment. Again, I don't care what is "promised" during the pre-lease hype phase. I only judge what is delivered. I don't care that 10 raid tiers and magic pony rides are promised and got cut.

    I'm not saying WoD was awesome, I just don't view it as terrible, I don't view any of the Xpacs as terrible. They all had their pros and cons and I liked some more than others. I still think it is too early to declare BFA worst ever, though it's possible that they add more stuff and most of it is just blah like IEs and Warfronts. Raids alone won't make or break BFA, because WoD had great raids.

    After 8.1. BFA is much worse than Wod

    This may be the first expansion I skip all together. Maybe when it's on sale near the end of the expansion so I can start the next one on release day.

    Hands down BfA is worse, mainly for one very important thing. The class feel.

    Yes BfA has better designed content, nicer zones, better quests system, Mythic + dungeons, etc...are better in BfA.

    But the BfA classes feel gutted, generic, hollow, and zero fun to play. At least in WoD my character was still a bad ass and FUN to play.

    There is not even a comparison between them... WOD is miles away from this major patch of legion called BFA.

    That was literally all of the meaningful new content WoD had to offer from November 13, 2014 to July 19, 2016.

    Next week, BFA will have already had more content in its first four months than WoD had in nearly two years.

    Get real, people.
    And yet, it's still garbage.

    WoD had the benefit of coasting on whatever they didn't manage to dismantle from MoP. BfA is the victim of now 3 consecutive xpacs of bad class design. So even though the content is being produced, it isn't enjoyable. Also azerite = aids.

    I still think it's quite odd what happened to WoD? Why did Blizzard cut so much stuff? WoD looked like half an expansion rather than a finished product.

    I enjoyed Tanaan. I enjoy nothing in BFA

    BfA purely for Azerite. It's fucking dreadful to design classes around these items when they don't change gameplay

    They said they greatly miscalculated how long it would take to get all their new employees trained and integrated into their workplace, which slowed them way down when they swore they would be faster with all the new hires. I don't know if that was the case or not, obviously, but there was clearly a point where they decided to put their eggs in the Legion basket and abandoned WoD.

    I had great fun in Wod, was one of the last in my guild to stop playing. Never bought Bfa, no interest in a Wow without PvP gear and servers.

    WoD was an unfinished product which is unacceptable.

    However, the new content/systems which BFA has brought to the game are ridiculous + they have destryed many specs. Classes were playing fine in MoP and WoD so why did they have to change them so much.

    I've unsubscribed from BFA in November, WOD had me longer. I feel something is missing in BFA and the class design is awful. Everything gutted.

    WOD almost killed the game,BfA is still fun and fresh.You could compare BfA to Cata or even MOP but its far from WOD travesty.
