    I agree with @OP completely. I haven't played much in the last few expansions (although I liked Legion a lot). But this has me playing again, I doubt I'll end up sticking around super long, but I'm having a lot of fun.
    I think I've had enough of removing avatars today that feature girls covered in semen. Closing.

    A extreme minority would be like under 100k subs, if you think BfA is under a 100k then you're...well lets say silly.

    I could psend hours pvping, but still have meaningful stuff that pops up.

    And best part of it, the zones also have a storyline that this doesn't interfere with.. It is getting better blizz. Better.

    It reminds me a bit off classic. Finally another feature I like about this patch is that the empty cavernous zones of uldum and Vale of Eternal blossoms actually have some meaningful activity. Great way to re-use a zone.

    I say this is pretty much carrying on from Naz'jatar and Mechagon.. except that i feels a lot better in 8.3 when the zones are actually that large.
    Agreed. Having a blast in 8.3, and I was previously not a fan of BFA. Great patch.

    Alternatively, I'm guessing you just like making mindless and baseless claims.
    I can just imagine Blizz HQ now ... "Well everyone, 8.3 must be a dud. Mozu on the forums said so, so it must be true".

    We're all posting on the same forum aren't we? This is MMO Champ yeah?

    He claimed someone else was a vocal minority. I provided him an example from this very website that he is. Since he is vocal too.

    Have you ever considered that YOU may be in the vocal minority?
    this right here is spot on,people dont usualy come out and scream that they like something,they do so when they dislike it,its why twitter sucks and affects stuff in media so much,a small very loud minority,yeah this xpac hasnt been great,and 8.3 started off as a buggy mess,but with all that fixed,its a pretty decent end patch content wise

    I can't stand any more chores. I will get AotC for N'yalotha and then unsub. The "maintenance costs" of my toons have skyrocketed in 8.3, and it doesn't look like I will be off the hook anytime soon to do what I actually like. It's frankly worse than the so dreaded Vanilla grinds - at least those aren't timegated to hell and back.

    10:1 ratio of being vocal. For every 10 that voice complaints, only one will have praise. That doesn't mean there are 10 times more in the dislike pile.

    I enjoy the zones, the rare farming, the mini quests, the mount camping, the raid, horrific visions, pretty much everything about the patch

    except corruption, the end cinematic and how the story turns to absolute dogshit at the very end. Danuser couldn't sew story threads if there was a giant twinky at the end to wrap his greasy fat hands around

    I hated the Timeless Isle when it was current content and I hate all subsequent iterations of it. I don't think there's much else in this game I hate more than having to camp for "rares."

    I think there's definitely a lot of stuff to do in 8.3, lots of various activities - from hunting rares, to gearing up for Visions, getting reputation, and so forth. Not what I'd call a stellar patch, but insofar as keeping busy goes its definitely got things on offer. If this is your thing then yeah, I think you're really going to like it. The raid is also pretty fun, and I like the encounters and so forth from a gameplay standpoint.

    And that folks, is how you attempt to pass off your opinion as fact, without having any fact to back up your opinion.

    Unfortunately for you, I exist. He is not awnsering himself. He is simply providing anecdotal evidence to back up his statement. Does it hold up in a neutral arguement? No, but he has all the evidence he personally needs to know that the content he loves, is shared by his particular circle of friends.

    Yes, WoW's population is low, perhaps the lowest it's ever been (I haven't bothered to check for numbers), but that is not a case for your arguement. That is simply people who no longer get an opinion to how this patch's content is, because they have not experienced it. You have to experience something if you want to critique it.

    And to your third point, i'm playing, so you're already wrong. I get what you're trying to do. You want to emphasize how you feel about this game, by engaging in hyper-bole. But you're just engaging, instead, in sheep mentality. You either were told that the content is bad, or just want to see it as bad, and thus, you believe it so. You might at one point find yourself enjoying it, but then immediatly repress those feelings because your particular flavour of streamer or YouTuber told you it was bad, and you dare not form your own opinion that is contrary to theirs.

    If you truly and genuinely feel this way on your own merits, however, then please, leave. There's the door. No one is forcing you into this abusive relationship, and I think I speak for most here when I say, we're tired of reading your bullshit.

    Love it, but there should have been more of it. More revisited zones, more dungeons with Ny'alotha aesthetic, more N'zoth, more closure.

    I love it when people say things like that, never realizing that what they're saying is closer to: "Well, my 100% anecdotal evidence (that I pulled straight out of my ass, but shh) is wholly logical and scientific. Whereas tons of actual evidence is meaningless because it goes against my personal opinion, and anyone who brings that up is the actual dunderhead in the conversation." <puffs on pipe while wobbling head>

    But hey, everyone you know in the game is playing the game! Imagine that!!!!!!!!!

    I never said it was a great patch...but to pretend that WoW only has less than a 100k subs which to me is what "extreme minority" feels like, is silly.

    Notice how he had to cherry pick that sentence against everything else. Because if he bothered to read more of the post, he would of seen that I call to attention the presence of Anecdotal evidence, and it's worth in a neutral conversation.

    Not once in my post did I state anything clear as fact, or opinion. Just what is. The context that he lacks to explain or offer up counter reasons or contradictory facts. He just says something, and expects it to be taken as gospel.

    Not once did he provide any evidence, and now, later on, he pretends that he already has.
