    I would definitely say WOD had a worse storyline since it was so random and pointless. However the BfA storyline is just plagued by bad writing and the decimation of established characters. Art and music team carried pretty hard at the start of BfA, however even that seems to be falling off with the gloomy and re-used assets coming in 8.2.

    It isn't as worse as Warlords is, but it IS a carbon copy of MoP's.

    Honestly Yrel being a warlord that uses the light to convert her enemies and grow her own army to protect her people from another genocide is actually a very good idea and concept to take with her, it's not totally evil but neither lawful stupid like Anduin, I want more characters like that.

WoD is still frankly worse but BfA is one stupid ending off from tying with it in terms of quality.
    It technically wasn't even time travel per se as it wasn't even our timeline(Nerzhul's wife, Garrosh's mother, etc). Legion screwed up more in terms of time lore than WoD did.

    The biggest problem with BfA is that we already saw this story. The story would be WAY more acceptable if MoP had not happened.

    WoD, on the other hand, was just a mess. I mean, looking closely at it's story is like staring at the abyss, but the abyss ends up sending you to the past.

    She wasn't converting enemies. They made peace with the orcs and then basically said everyone had to be infused with light whether you wanted it or not. That MADE people her enemy when they refused to do so.

    I don't really think of any leg of WoW as having had a story. Too half baked and sparse, even at its best. It's little more than wallpaper.

    WoD's story literally took amazing characters and turned them into loot pinatas, and interrupted the story mid-way. Anyone pretending otherwise are just 100% on the "hate the current game"-train.

    Cannot beleive how much a couple years makes people forget how awful WoD was in comparison to what we have now

    Did you saw all the war machine the orcs brough with them or their bloodlust? There is no way all of that shit was built in 2 weeks, besides it's also play into something Golden has tried to hide in the alliance races which is the racist view they have toward horde races and after BFA that posture should be more visible(if Golden leftist views weren't in the way). Yrel isn't perfect by any definition of the dumb superhero that a lot of americans like but the orcs aren't exactly pacific people and even Kairoz mentions he choosed that timeline because the orcs are even more bloodlusted than the MU ones.

    I think one of the reasons why the story in BFA feels so lackluster is because of the huge amounts of time before we're allowed to progress through it.

    It seems like they wrote the story like you'd write a movie but we're only allowed to watch 10 minutes every few months or so.

    This is precisely my thoughts on the matter.

    Each patch should be a meaty chapter with a beginning and end. It does not feel episodic, it feels like dad has to stop mid chapter because it's bedtime.

    Nah I think one of the major roles is the parallels the writing team is doing with MoP(which everyone knows where that story went) and with the time-gating is the icy of the cake

    It is a really BIG cherry on top of the cake tbh. I remember Ion saying that he wanted this xpac to have story-driven content... And we have remarkably little story as of now, barely enough as to get our toes wet.

    So like a tv-series then?

    Nah, I get what you mean, there could be some less timegating when it comes to these questlines.

    This isn't really a fair comparison to BFA, then, since the halfway point hasn't hit yet. If we're talking about the launch + first patch, WOD's story held together just fine; it only really started to fall apart at the midway point when they clearly abandoned the expansion. BFA has had zero story for the launch + first patch, which makes it infinitely worse. They look to be headed in the opposite direction of WOD, however, in that the story is about to get better in 8.2. But thus far, BFA is the worst no question.

    I really can't decide since they are both fairly depressing and forgettable, I get no drive from either of them.

    Yes, WoD was absolutely awful. I disliked it a lot. Here's the difference:

    WoD's story, for all of its faults, was largely self-contained. Yes, we got things like the "One Legion, many universes" nonsense, Thrall became even more intolerable, and so on. Even with that, for the most part, we can just pretend WoD never happened and it simply didn't impact the overall story enough for us to be punished for doing so.

    Conversely, BfA is not self-contained. We're torching characters left and right in order to peddle some ridiculous narrative. Even after BfA ends its impact on characters, and the overall story itself is going to continue.

    More like being sent to coal mines mid chapter.
