    That's not the only problem MOP had.. the dailies at launch were the cause of several burn outs.

    Also, let's be real, Timeless Isle was probably the smallest content patch they have delivered next to the selfie patch.. that place was small with a ridiculous catch up mechanic that required no work at all.

    But, but.. MOP had decent raids and it was the peak of class design. THAT's why people rank it so high. They enjoyed playing their character back then.

    Generally WoW just more boring as it got more dated. Legion was a good expansion, but it's still the expansion of a very old game that's just not as enjoyable to play anymore. Vanilla, TBC and Wotlk was WoW's peak, with strong communities, a more "MMO" feel, and a more "Warcraft" feel.

    Tier 1: Wotlk, TBC
    Tier 2: Legion
    Tier 3: MoP
    Tier 4: Cata, WoD, BfA

    Wrath/Legion > MoP/BfA > Cata/WoD/TBC. The end.

    Going online to waste their time posting on forums is something that many people would never do. That's what I meant by different personalities. When Blizzard listen to the feedbacks, they aint listening to their player base, they are listening to these people have that type of personality.
    I think the most popular shared thing online are cat pictures... I don't think the majority of people would like to have cat pictures hanged in every room of their office. This is kind of what blizzard did.

    I agree wholeheartedly with that list. Wrath is the peak, MoP was a fantastic time too, though.

    We can confirm that Arthas and Pandas are the best of WoW. So far

    Yea mop just needed mythic+, new dungeons, and some of the pvp mechanics in wotlk. Than it would be number one for me at least. Vanish was an iframe in wotlk.

    To be fair - Mists had what was basically the catalyst for Mythic dungeons, Challenge mode.

    First: I started in Vanilla, not Classic. People who started the game in classic play less than 3 months and probably don't know MoP at all. And for me it's not one of my favorites, it's my absolute favorite. 8.0 had an reputation-issue, and it's still one of the top 10 stupid things blizzard made, putting valor gear behind reputations (and was quite quickly hotfixed to relax the requirements; not sure if they removed it later alltogether); but beside of this, it was the best expansion blizzard ever made.

    I think the biggest issues some people have with MOP are simply one thing: PANDAS!

    I hated MoP (aka Panda Island Adventure). Although it did seem to be popular with the less than hardcore crowd, so cool. I would have to agree that Woltk was probably the best overall expansion, especially early on. I would call TBC second best overall, but the best in terms of raiding.

    Cataclysm threw the bar down to a low because of the nostalgia TBC raiders had for 1% elitism then quickly backtracked and went -far- too much towards casuality to the point of it being laughable.

    MoP was the perfect middle ground, like WOTLK it managed to have something for every player, and thats why it worked, alot of blizzards designs from Cata were pushed back to focus on a more WOTLK style casual approach but with hardcore in the mix, adding argueably the hardest raid ever made (heroic ToT) to the mix which at the time was universally praised, MoP was an amazing filler.

    WoD took everything MoP gave us, once again focused on TBC nostalgia and tried too hard to literally bring TBC back with raiding being the *only* content worth doing since even PvP was meh.

    Legion tried to be as good as WOTLK and MoP but only excelled in its storytelling while being mediogre in nearly everything else.

    And BFA again had good story narrative, but tried too hard to rekindle the faction war, something that died years ago back in MoP by rekindling a dead idea.

    Shadowlands to me feels like it will be a meh expansion, neither good or bad but universally considered "meh" like it will do decently to launch but quickly be like WoD/BFA but with a bit more to do.
    The thing is they never really had to "beat" wrath. It had a winning (early) formula that did not need to be screwed with (except for some small tweaks). They should have kept the wotlk formula and just made new content and stories instead of flipping the entire game upside down.

    I know but if they make a mist legacy realm and add them that would be great. I'd never play live wow again unless it took mops class design.

    Didn't show the tower.
    Didn't show any new class design.
    Didn't show covenants.
    "Features" trailer was completely empty.
    Wouldn't talk about itemization because they "hadn't decided yet".

    Oh also - 8.3 has less than half the content that SoO had in MoP. You think a Withered/Chromie scenario, a raid and recycled invasions WQs(third time) will carry this game for 12-14 months? Think again.
    Blizzard is banking on the player base grinding neck, cloak and cursed gear for the next yr+. Everything is heavily gated, wont be able to run many cloak missions, corrupted gear is up in the air if you see it or it roles right and the neck is limited.

    If they ever announce Mists servers, I'd be very, very happy.

    Pandaren were a hard pill to swallow. I pity people who missed out on MoP because they couldn't get past that initial shock of kung fu panda crossed with warcraft. Best PvP ever.

    BC was the best expansion

  18. #278
    For me personally, MoP was near worst. I never enjoyed it and couldn’t go through with it.

    WoD had its good qualities such as story and dungeon design. I really enjoyed it from that perspective.

    My best expansions are legion and BFA.

    But remember before you shit on me and call me a retard that i only ranked them for leveling experience, lore, zones. And everyone has their taste.

  19. #279
    I'm sure it's been said, but multiple reasons why MOP is ranked #2.
    MOP came after Cata which was a shit show and terrible so naturally anything is going to be better
    A lot of current players STARTED in mop, so they most likely are biased
    After MOP came WOD, another disaster. When a terrible expansion comes after a decent one you're going to think "man the last version was so much better"

    MOP is only #2 because blizzard made it seem that way with their terrible 2 expansions before and after.
