    To be fair, a Battle Royale mode just as the Battle Royale genre is starting to stabilize (with Fortnite views on Twitch beginning a downward trend) in a desperate attempt to stay hip and relevant is about on-par for the current dev team. These are the same guys who dedicated 6.1 to selfies, Twitter, and a few Garrison updates.

    On-topic: As nice as it would be to get a new, coherent leveling experience that smooths out the fucking Gordian Knot of schizophrenic storytelling that is 1-90 right now, I don't see it happening unless a large portion of the endgame also takes place in the revamped zones to justify all the work being put into them. If the Cata 1-60 revamp had gone over better with drawing and retaining new players, it'd be different, but I recall the devs admitting it didn't accomplish that goal and instead just sort of anal-fisted the story progression from 1-80 into a mess where a character whose story begins after the events of WotLK goes back and experiences the Outland and Northrend campaigns in real time.

    A revamp of leveling is definitely needed. I've thought for a while that this should not be an expansion feature but more of an on going project. Every new patch has 3-5 zones revamped. They could even group them by expansion if they wanted.

    When they did the level scaling they should have made it so that you could level in any zone up to the last 2 expansions, ie everything before Legion could be used to level from 1-100. Then when the next expansion drops, add Legion and make all zones 1-110.

    If they do it that way, then revamping zones becomes much easier, IMO.

    No one in their right mind thinks garrisons had anything to do with housing, besides being a pathetic deflection attempt of blizzard.

    As far as fake developer notes go this is just lazy. I give this fake leak an F.

    The only thing that shows an minimum of effort is the logo thingt. The rest is lazy trolling that show an utter lack of imagination.

    Trolling of this caliber is, to be honest, a disgrace of the fine abstract art of pissing people off on the internet.

    That's the one that makes me seriously consider leaks like this, but then again the Artifact weapon was something that was absurd enough to be true.

    Come to think of it, the two most recent expansions have been ridiculously predictable. While BfA isn't quite "south seas" it seems pretty fanficy as well. Kul Tiras, Zandalar, old gods, the sea, Azshara...

    That being said I still say this leak is complete 100% poorly disguised bullshit.

    Would you care to explain what more would a proper housing provide? I mean apart from the “build it where you like” feature. Guild housing could be more fun but again I find gameplay around housing pretty boring

    Not sure I can be arsed to explain the whole thing once again.

    The main aspects are customization, collection, expression of creativity, showing off achievments, general RPG feeling and they make active use of various ingame activities to achieve the afore mentioned. It starts with constant demand for materials for crafting, even older things and ends with getting trophies from raids, PvP, etc. It get's repeated time and time again in the dozens of threats about housing that pop up here each year, if you actually care look through those. But I can tell you that garrisons are to housing what skateboards are to cars. If all you care about is four wheels, then yes, they are the same.
