    Yeah keep telling that to yourself. I'm sure she has a completely legit noble reason to ally with Azshara and seek Knaifu. Technically she can be just a simple Old God worshipper, buuut that's about it.

    No, of course I don't.

    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.
    - July 19, 2019: The World First Race on a single channel, before counting across the board, has more viewers than Asmongold.

    Yes in the fact that I didnt care about WoD, it had no urgency or seeming effect it was so disjointed we are chasing an orc across time bug whoop. It was boring and I lost interest.

    BfA however throws us into such a massive onslaught at the start and then dials it down to nothing so it is the flipside they pushed too hard to make me care then forsook that so I feel betrayed by BfA which makes me mad and pushed me closer to uncaring about the franchise as a whole anymore.

    So in short, WoD = Stopped caring about the expansion. BfA = Stopping caring about the game as a whole.

    As much as the faction conflict narrative sucks, at least BfA has Old Gods and the naga - plus Mechagon turned out to be a fun surprise. If WoD's story wasn't incomplete (Orgrim and Durotan in Gorgrond and Yrel's "dark secret", for instance) I probably would have said it was better.

    Or she just wants to destroy the Alliance by all possible means.

    Nobody is negatively affected by the planet dying. Nobody is affected by a planet scale war right after the Legion invasion. No panic, no poverty, no anti war protests, barely any opposition to the death worshipping warchief.

    WoW writing was always fanfiction level at best, but BfA is porn level.
    Those lemon stealing Horde have no idea what's coming!

    Faction conflict aside, Zandalar and Kul Tiras were kul. I also think that Nazjatar and Mechagon will be good but I am afraid that Azshara will die too soon.

    War campaign, however, is unnecessary mess of plot armors, going out of character, stupid ideas and repeated storylines. If the story quality isn't enough they made the war campaign extremely short(10 minutes for patch for Alliance, 20 minutes for the Horde) and timegated. Also, where is the voice acting?

    Is that alliance bias? Or horde bias? I can't keep track of it anymore

    Even if BfA was as bad as WoD (which it isn't), it wouldn't be as bad as WotLK!
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > Legion > MoP > BfA > WoD = WotLK

    As subjective opinions go, BfA's been negatively messing around with stuff I've always cared about, so it's worse offender for me.

    Coming out of WoD I still liked my faction and was interested in its future. As of BfA, the more it goes on the more I feel like I'll have to dig through the garbage to maybe find something I'll still like. I sincerely hope I'm wrong though.

    To be fair, whatever issues WoD had, the story was not one of them (except maybe that thing at the end with Grom). The zones all had cohesive stories with good cinematics "rewards". Honestly, I like that setup better than most of legion and BFA zones, if nothing else for the epic cinematics. I still go back and watch those every once in a while.

    For BFA, I am hoping there is some cohesive overarching story we mostly have not been able to see due to some sort of twist coming. Of course we won't know that, and whether it was worth it/works until that comes or doesn't. So far it's mostly been interesting zone stories that don't really connect as much as usual, as the main story is basically still "horde vs alliance, even if we have to make characters completely insane to make it happen".

    BfA’s story is the worst it has ever been.

    WoD was short. It wasn’t able to fuck up nearly as much. They did more damage with tweets they posted at the time than they did in game.

    Also the storytelling in the leveling zones of WoD was pretty good. Even if the stories were average to meh.

    I’m really hopefully they just kill her. If they don’t want to make her a raid boss I’d hope Bane crushes her head with his big cow hands hopefully after she kills thrall. I’d also be fine with her living and becoming a villain, but thrall dying and bane growing a pair is my preferred ending.

    Pretty much, yeah. The only part of WoD’s story that is definitively worse than anything I’ve seen yet in BfA is Yrel and crew instantly making friends with the Orc that was happily murdering his way through Draenei men, women and children an hour beforehand.

    Not only is BfA’s story worse, it actually has a negative impact on the main continuity, which WoD really didn’t.

  16. #56
    WoD was better. BfA storytelling is disjointed, and the factions fighting makes no sense whatsoever. Also, the Horde keeps saying they are honorable when they killed thousands of Night Elf citizens including children. If Sylvanas isn't killed at the end of this horrible expansion I think it is a failure of storytelling.

    Dudeeee u mark my words. We have a Kerrigan coming. Can you imagine the state of these forums if they kill her or let her go scott free? We already get a horde identity crisis thread twice a day I can't even imagine what would happen if they turn her into a raid boss.

    WoD was the first expansion in my WoW-Life since 2005 where i was turned off from logging in on some days because it just did not draw me in. At all.

    With BFA, it is like 10times worse. Because this story is not only putting me off right now, it is damaging the lore and characters of the entire franchise so much that it is pretty much impossible to ever come back to a more sensical level after this, short of a full blown retcon.
