    Yeah, this perpetual blaming of millennials for everything bad that happens in-game, and otherwise, is getting really old.

    More on topic, what OP is proposing might work, sure, but as a separate game. Something like old-school RTS's such as Majesty FKS, or even Master of Orion 2 - but certainly not as part of WoW. Mission tables are bad enough, even in their current, neutered version.

    In addressing the OP, there may be an audience for it somewhere. As a previous poster noted - basically you're looking for the equivalent of a movie or watching someone else play. If all you're doing is watching it be played and not actually playing, it ceases to become a game and just becomes a viewing experience. I pray that games never evolve to that level where all you do is press "play" and then sit back and watch the result.

    To be fair, in the games I do play which have auto battle, the hardest stuff is simply not autoable. Mainly because the AI is just too stupid (using skills on CD when you actually would need to use them to iframe incoming attacks for example). Aside from that though, it's basically "Seeing how your team handles (difficult) content", based on the decisions you made earlier: Characters to use, equipment for said character, maybe equipped skills and whatever else there is in terms of management.

    Now if you referred to games where you actually have to grind for god knows how long: Those are just running in the background while I do other stuff. I basically only look at them from time to time to see what I got so far.

    There are several games like this, go play those and leave WoW as it is. This would only do one thing - shove it further into the dumpster.

    possibly the worst gaming trend of all time. i've heard people actually argue to me, being completely honest, that it doesn't make sense for them to buy game X, when they could just watch a streamer play X, and "get the same experience"

    designing anything with the twitch aspect as the central focus will result in something i will not touch. not out of principal but because it's boring. i will never understand someone who watches someone else play a video game and finds that to be an adequate replacement for actually playing the game.

    Just direct those people to Twitch or Youtube, they can watch the story and the gameplay there.
