    for me personally, no hype at all. why ? simple:

    - when i look at todays blizz, i assume next xpac is next cash grab transport medium for tokens, paid services, shop, etc
    - when i look at todays blizz, i assume next xpac is next cheap shit cost effective production
    - when i look at last xpacs, i assume next xpac is next round of same grind, same shit
    - when i look at last xpacs, i assume next xpac is next round of same recycling shit
    - when i look at last xpacs, i assume next xpac is next round of same cheap lore
    - when i look at last xpacs, i assume next xpac is next round of bad class design
    - nothing that hypes me of existing informations (because not really anything new, no class, etc)
    - no alpha or further informations
    - no reasons to believe, above points are wrong

    there is maybe a 1% hope, that next xpac has somewhat more quality in content and class design, since they argumented a bit in that direction at blizzcon. also slight hope for better alt gaming.

    but since i lost any hope in blizz and foremost the wow team, i have 99% other percents for the points above, that completely kill every possible hype. so, no, not hyped at all.
    By reading your post i consider myself lucky
    Because i only like to PvP and WoW is my MOBA game.
    So i almost never get tired of playing.

    I just did today 5 conquest point caps with my Brewmaster Monk in 2v2...got 1450 rating ROFLMAO, im happy for it

    no special reason. it just sounded like you wanna say „ey, the ppl will come and then your hype comes“. and i just thought by myself „yes ppl and hype will come, but just half the ppl, so hype will not be that giant“. thats all. nothing special here.

    I'm actually pretty excited about the stuff they announced at Blizzcon. I'm also excited to see how M+ continues to grow and what kind of stuff they'll add in upcoming seasons - new dungeons to learn, new keys to run. And new raids. That's pretty decent value from a expac. Looking forward to it.

    Hearing nothing for 5 months has killed the hype for me a bit.

    you are right. it should be „...imo, a lot of players have not so big interests in...“. this way it would be better worded and not exclude ppl like you. not EVERY one on this planet has enough from current wow concepts. i dont wana generalize here.

    you are the living proof that my statement was too „i know what ALL ppl think“...

    thx for clarifying

    There's so few videos about it.
    There's such little online discussion about it.
    There are next to ZERO Blueposts about the expansion.
    Even on these forums, you can tell discussion is at an all time low. At this rate, Shadowlands will be BfA 3.0, just as Bellular predicted.


    Was it how it was marketed? Was it Sylvanas? Why is it taking so long to see an alpha or beta? Maybe Blizzard is keeping it under wraps for now because they have some huge, exciting announcements for it.. ? (Doubt it.)
    TBH, what about the expansion are we supposed to get excited about?

    It has 5 new zones, a city, Sanctums (which sounds about the same as class halls, but only 4 this time instead of one for each class), a never-ending dungeon which will definitely be more repetitive than is being sold, and some tweaks to leveling.

    Seriously, that's it. No new class and no new races (not that allied races were really new races either). Nothing about big changes to classes, just adding some abilities back...which potentially makes it the 3rd expansion in a row with the same class approach.

    The expansion really does smell like Legion 3.0 (or perhaps Legion 1.75 for the most cynical among us). There is no indication that Blizz is putting anymore effort into this expansion than they did with BfA...in fact, there is some indication that Blizz is putting even less effort into Shadowlands than they did for BfA.

    This. I know some people on these boards lose their shit when I compare WoW to FFXIV, but there is no half year long empty shit.

    The reveal is spaced over 3 events in three consecutive months. Sometimes after the last reveal we get the x.5 patch which is always a lead in to the next expansion. Said last patch comes in three part in three months following each other to make sure you have something new to play even two months after the normal sized last patch. 3 and a half months after that, the new expansion launches.

    The lack of hype is just one of the many harbingers of a failed, filler expansion, you mark my words.

    What is there to be hyped about? New zones, dungeons, factions, raid, lore? Taken for granted, long ago. No class, no races, no nothing. Just a potentially interesting tower.

    Ah yes, the promises to "get everything right this time", only no specifics, as usual. And more of the same lazy design - no tier sets and timegates just two examples. Paired with the usual, non-apologetic Ion's approach of "we like how BfA turned out", we got a recipe for disaster: the worst expansion yet.

    The game has literally been raids + dungeons for the past 15 years, so I don't much expect a new expansion now will radically change the concepts this late in the lifecycle. So yeah, it'll most likely be pretty much what WoW expacs always tend to be.

    Oh and the theme looks pretty dope as well.

    Things we know about Shadowlands:

    -has zones for questing
    -has max level zone
    -same classes (likely no changes)
    -mythic+
    -raids
    -pvp
    -has a tower for fighting
    -Owls


    Why would anyone be hyped?

    Edit: with the exception of the last 2, basically the same game we've been playing for 4 years.

    If blizzard did that people would screech out of their lungs about timegated content.

    because we have nothing to see yet.
    As a content creator let me step in for a moment

    1. "No videos about it"- cause there is nothing to make videos on. All the info at blizzcon was made to death, at this point we need something to actually play to be able to make videos on it
    2. "Little online discussion" - again, cause its all been spoken about, we cant theorize all day every day, it gets boring, we are waiting till alpha/beta and then discussion will come back up.
    3. "ZERO blueposts" - again cause nothing is out...
    4. "All time low" YES CAUSE THERE IS NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT cause we are waiting till the alpha comes out so we actually have stuff to talk about.
    should we talk about lotr 7? its not out yet, nor is there litwerally 0 info about it, but we gotta talk about it, or else lotr is a failure.
    also BFA 3.0? what was BFA 2.0?

    Why is it taking so long? idk if you know, but the world is in a pandemic right now, everything is at a stand still...


    With the alpha on the horizion we are prepping TONS of shadowlands videos, writing scripts and ideas, with simply stuff just needing to be plugged in, and stuff finished, text fixed and footage added. But right now there is no intrest, cause there is no actual content.

    we need something to actually talk about... to talk, cause right now there is nothing to talk about that is not old news.

    idk if you know but alpha isnt usually something we "have" it is something done by friends and family, usually tight knit.
    it seems like, or is likely atleast that with shadowlands they may be keeping alpha hidden to just the people, and will skip straight to beta, which for example
    Legion=august 30
    Legion beta= may

    oh shit your in the alpha? wow man, lucky you.

    This is pretty much it.

    Nothing to discuss.. and to speculate is fun to a certaint point then it becomes a bowl of headcanon which no one realy wants.

    Their biggest talking point at blizzcon was "Player Agency" and this is by far the worst issue the game has, so I am excited but we don't know much.

    I am worried it will just be the same shit new expansion. World quests, daily emmesaries, M+, 4 raid difficulties, "Seasons" with catch up mechanics, people selling boosts for Token gold (techincally P2W)... I don't see any evidence any of these things will change, and it's really heartbreaking for me personally.
