    Everyone's quit. Nothing but Twitter users left playing the game. Those people are happy to spend their paycheques on anything that has at least one sparkle in it.

    I mean, why do you think Blizz keeps adding pet battle dungeons as main features for a patch?

    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.)
    Dude, we have Classic now with TBC pretty much Confirmed. No need to talk expansions.

    probably because of that lame, cringeworthy, second grade like cinematic.

    I am hyped! New magical area's, this time the afterlife or the journey after death.
    They could add soooo much more area's to this vast infinitive world.

    Thinking OP just created the thread to stir things up, he hasnt replied to any of the posts in the entire thread.

    And we're going on 6 pages now so...


    On topic I am hyped, but we havent gotten any info in a very long time now either.

    Because there are no exciting features. No new class, no new races. There's no real wow factor imo. I'm not even excited about what I've seen of the story so far, because it just seems like Sylvanas fanfic.

    Do you think the 4 difficutly, Season oriented and boosting community for HC Nya for 40$ worth of tokens, is good for the game?

    Is BfA gearing a good system?

    If getting ilvl is not what is supposed to make the game fun, what is? Arena Rating? R.IO score?
    4 difficult is very good for the game, allowing everyone to have a difficulty for them
    season oriented? yes, the game has been this way since vanilla. every time a new patch comes out, the older patch is earlier, and catch ups are added.
    Boosting community? again been inthe game since vanila, i think its bad for the game, but its been in the game since vanilla.
    no bfa gearing is bad, but that is being fixed in shadowlands.
    if getting ilvl is not what is supposed to make the game fun what is? it... it is fun, wtf you talking about?

    That's exactly the reason there isn't any hype. They've showed us (or at least talked about) all the major features of the expansion already, and it's been founding lacking. Badly lacking.

    There's people who'll try to claim that what they revealed was just a teaser and they're secretly hiding all the good stuff. These people are just straight-up wrong, especially given Blizzard's track record in the past. If anything, features will be stripped away instead.

    You watch. This thread will go 50 pages. Especially when someone mentions that the reason why we have heard nothing is because it has been delayed till 2021.

    What do U think tbc is? The reason why tbc is being mentioned is because classic is dead.

    I would like you to expand on what makes getting ilvl fun to you.

  12. #112
    Well there's a 2000+ page thread about it but hey what do we know
    They always told me I would miss my family... but I never miss from close range.

    A) There's no info about it except what we saw at Blizzcon, which wasn't a lot.
    B) BfA has driven away a lot of players, and Blizzard will need to work hard to gain their trust back. No one really gives a shit because after BfA (and Legion too, to a lesser extent) people are just assuming it will be dogshit again.

    Maybe there will be some hype once we actually get more info. Blizzard more than ever has to prove it though. Talk is really fucking cheap. I don't have much faith that Shadowlands will be anything other than more grindy MAU bullshit.

    Shadowlands gameplay elements look boring as fuck. The zones look like rehashed Legion zones. And they retconned large swaths of the lore that has caused the expansion to look like a giant pile of trash.

    I'd wager some posters on that thread have posted pages on their own, my group of friends were hyped for BFA, they all saw it for what it was quite early on, only 5 of us or so made it to 8.1 out of a group of 20. From the BFA trailer to release our group was really getting on the hype train, as for Shadowlands, we all watched the cinematic and honestly no one has spoke about Shadowlands since then, but the talk about TBC recently has got our group deciding on servers/classes etc, so at least blizzard has that going for them.

    Because BFA was a complete and utter fucking disaster from start to finish (and so was Legion as far as I'm concerned due to the butchering of classes, among other things, which makes the last 3 expansions trainwrecks from my PoV and 2 out of 3 from most others) and we know nothing about Shadowlands.


    We have no reason to be hyped and every reason not to be at this moment. That's why there's no hype.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.

    What makes it fun for most people?
    That it is progressing your charecter.
    have you ever wondered why clickers and tycoon games are SOOOO popular? because of the constant progression.
    speaking of that i have a craving for rollar coaster tycoon...

    I mean if WOW is that bad as a product they obviously wont spend more money on it and they will slowly cut the budget .. nothing really new from this point of view so there will be less features but basically same product .. new zones, quests, raids and something on top of it. We dont have now things like a new PVP system or artifacts etc.

    So i think that alpha is not needed that early now .. do u think that they have same or bigger budget than i d say 2009 ? Definetily no ..

    I think its the opposite of not a lot of information but instead the information about the expac. is blah. We know quite a lot about Shadowlands actually(as much as we did about Legion and BfA).

    We know the Story
    Where it takes place.
    Class design for the most part

    The third thing in particular is why you do not see much hype.

    Class design will not be changed but will get some "borrowed" power yet again which will add a general button or two and passives that are not at all class/spec specific. Getting some ncie niche spells back that will ultimately mean nothing in endgame PvE and may have some impact on PvP.

    Most people are waiting for Alpha to drop in hopes that there will be a little Classes changes to fix Classes but in reality there probably won't be and alpha won't really bring the game hype. Heck, People are mreo hyped for Classic BC and all they got was a hint to it just because BC had much better Class design.

    Ultimately we actually do know quite a lot about Shadowlands its just theres nothing about it to be excited for. Any new news they could add at this point would mostly be visuals.
