    But, how will it be remembered? Will people still call it the worst expansion ever created? Will people say it was the peak of WoW (LOL)?

    I'd love to hear your opinion
    Better the Shadowlands looking at this conventant abilities fiasco

    levelling and raids were fine.

    azerite and corruption were shit.

    so 50/50 for me.
    This is a signature, there are many like it, but this one is mine.

    BFA was awesome, first time I got into mythic keys with a group of friends, so much customisation from essences to azerite. A good balance of enjoyment and commitment as some people doing dailies every day, but just doing the assault weekly pretty much keeps your progression up to a decent standard. Weekly chest is just one mythic. The speed, fluidity and mechanics of the game at high level mythics is engaging and competitive. BFA is the best wow version ever released to me.

    Being a raider in WoD was nice. No endless busywork to keep up with the demands of raiding, heck, even consumable farming was nonexistent with the garrison garden providing the herbs for consumables. But i can imagine being a casual player in WoD was pretty pointless given that the expansion had very little to do outside of raiding. Garrison missions were also a pretty idiotic expansion feature that came with no meaningful gameplay, but that came to stay so that complaint continues being relevant to date. BfA is the opposite, being a raider sucks - i've spent more time doing mind numbing busywork than actually raiding in this expansion. Consumable farming was awful especially at the start of the expansion, AP grind never ends, much of the gear comes from M+, or in case of 8.2, world quests because benthic. I mean, why the fuck are world quests and island expeditions relevant content to cutting edge raiders? From what i've heard, casual players seem to like having stuff to do though. Classes were also overall better in WoD. Raids themselves have been good in every expansion, that's the one thing wow excels at.

    As an expansion WoD was half baked, but i liked playing in WoD much better than i like playing in BfA. The defining characteristics of BfA to me are busywork and dumbed down classes. And, i guess i'll also be remembering BfA as the expansion where i finally quit after 14 years too, i highly doubt SL will make drastic enough changes to the right direction to bring me back to the game. I don't think i've ever called any expansion definitively the worst, but to me, BfA was the worst expansion so far.

    WoD had a pretty good version of Ret, despite the trimming. At one point we could talent for a 16-yard radius Divine Storm (and pull everything in sight - I swear it reached further than that) until they nerfed it, and DS still did a minor bit of healing. The Legion version where DS fired a secondary version in a frontal cone was nowhere near as good. Oh, and the Hellfire Citadel tier set for Ret was pretty sweet, giving two charges to Avenger's Wrath.

    One thing WoD brought that I think everyone thinks is a good thing - armour is no longer typed as an 'Int' or 'Strength' or 'Agility' piece, but has a main stat for any spec that should be wearing it.

    Or they could simply make them share a short CD on use, so if you use one you can't use another for 20 seconds or whatever. That way you could chain them but not stack them. Or make each one over-write the others. Instead, they chose the option that feels worst.

    That's one thing I like about Resto Shaman healing - it's still recognisable as what it was in LK, when I first hit the level cap with my Shaman. There are some new tools, and a lot of stuff has gone missing in the latest three expacs, but overall it works much the same (though Cloudburst Totem can go and DiaF - I hate playing round a short cooldown like that, and it's really not what Resto healing's been about prior).

    The garden, mine, etc., were very handy for many crafters (but leatherworkers and tailors still had to get mats from exterior sources), but it pretty much wrecked the AH and crafter/gatherer economy and in some ways it's never recovered. Great for crafters, terrible for gatherers.

    I quit in WoD over the no-flight thing, came back when they relented. I stayed subbed for all of Legion, but my play time from when we beat Nighthold through to getting flight from Broken Shore was pretty minimal - just enough to get flight as fast as possible (and thanks to work schedules I couldn't get it as soon as possible, which annoyed me quite a bit - the strict gating was BS). Currently I've been subbed about one month in two for the past year or more, and I've not even tried to find a guild or group that raids at a time where work doesn't interfere, nor PuG raids as I used to. Even raiding, which I've always loved about WoW, isn't enough to keep me subbed - instead of finding a way to raid, I just don't play except real casual with a few even more casual friends. Too much grind, too much all the same.

    Good start to the xpac looked promising.
    All systems and features they introduced were downright dreadful, everysingle one of them.
    8.3 laughable, people saying how fun and immersive the whole n'zoth visions thing was - shows how desperate they are to play WoW because it has to be the most uncreative uninspiring piece of crap I've seen in this game.
    Decent zones, music, theme etc which is quite normal, the rest of it (systems, features, alt freedom, class and spec immersion) is a solid 0/10.

    Overall 2/10.

    neutral.

    i'll remember it as the expansion that ruined alts for everyone.
    No sense crying over spilt beer, unless you're drunk...

    The story was so unbelievably forced and fragmented though.
    What choice? You equip whatever the sim says is best, everything else is trash. If you're really lucky it's not the same set of azerite traits the entire expansion.

    How's crazyland? In what world is visions less creative AND less inspiring than island expeditions? At least visions can be somewhat difficult.

    I think I'd go with worst one so far. There are some improvements to existing features, and I do like the concept of the Warfronts/Islands, but it's very lacking compared to earlier expansions, and I absolutely hate the Garrosh 2.0 storyline. Also, there is nothing to do in 8.3 other than getting a little higher ilvl items. BFA is probably the least interesting expansion from a transmog point of view. At least the music is good, and the cinematics are the best ever.

    mop, never played it
    wod, sub for all of it but only because i bought game time with gold
    legion, subbed for all of it but bot game time with gold
    bfa, unsubbed during 8.2, returned for 8.3.

    mop was worst, then cata, then wrath, then bfa, wod and legion tied, vanilla and bc on top
    Translation: I never played MoP/gave it a proper chance therefore it is the worst.
    You never unsubbed from MoP... you just didn't come back, based on what you're saying.

    I really didn't like MoP at first but later on I approached it openly and actually fell in love with it. It had some of the best lore and story-telling the game had seen since at least Wrath, since all of Cata was an absolute joke. What I played during MoP was maybe the last third/or even quarter of the expansion's time and frankly, I regret that tremendously.
    On top of the lore, questing, story-line aspect, the raids were also incredibly gorgeous, expansive, and well thought-out, and can I just say: Thunder. Isle.
    Stay healthy and safe, my friends. <3

    WoD: pretty much still hated by everyone for too many missed and half assed opportunities
    BFA: will probably be remembered for great starter content (people loved BFA when it launched), but progressively worse patches with a totally shitty finale even worse than Cata's.
    You should realize that the descriptions for WoD and BfA can be easily interchanged.

    Whether WoD or BfA were truly the worst is like arguing which type of poop is more disgusting. Does it really matter?

    As for Cata and MoP, they were terrible considering what had come before them, but the vast majority that actually experienced all of the aforementioned expansions will not put them at the bottom.

    And I did literally lol at the those that voted that BfA was one of the better or was the best expansion. That made my day.

    Thematically it's not bad at all.. in fact it's one of the best. Gameplay wise.. bleh, it sucks. I guess it's gonna be remembered as an average expansion. Sort of like Cata.

    Yeah I guess you're one of those people who criticize others for voting for one political party instead of the other huh?
    You actually inspect people's votes and use that as an "argument"? Jesus fucking christ.

    Yeah, it was better than WOD (for me), it was better than pandaria (for me), it was better than pre-bc (for me), it was better than BC (for me) but it's below Cataclysm WOTLK and Legion.

    DIFFERENT OPINIONS, INCREDIBLE RIGHT?

    In my personal opinion, bfa sucks, I mean I'm playing wow since the last patch of wotlk and Ive enjoyed the next expansion, sure not all has been good but I always found a reason to log into wow. I was super excited for bfa like so many people but since the first content patch I can't fin a reason to log in, I even bought a new pc only to play wow, payed the subscription but I didn't last more than 3 days playing.

    It's sad, I really love this game and I always finding a reason to defending for other people that say the game suck, now I completely agree with them.

    Hope shadowlands will be better.

    I'm sorry for my bad English.

    Island Expeditions is a good idea, with absolutely shocking implementation.
    Jog on kid.

  18. #198
    Neutral feeling to be honest. Definitely better than WoD, I have many good memoeries from BfA, but overall it was nothing spectacular. It was average.

    I will say one thing though, Blizzard really nailed the pre-patch. Sylvanas committing genocide in literally the first 10 minutes of the expansion? That shit was crazy.
    One shot, one kill. This is how I preserve my realm.

    Mag'har, void elves and a couple of N'zoth raid fights (dragons mainly) are the only things I will remember fondly from BfA.

    Always suspected it was going to be a decidedly underwhelming "filler" expansion and I think my suspicions were vindicated.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about Shadowlands. Wildhammer!!!

    There is more than one option. You have choice. Very interesting play with a good bonus low ilvl vs bad bonus high ilvl. In the old version, high ilvl was always better. I don't know how you don't see this obvious fact.
