    Honestly I would even be happy if they atleast allowed us to buy additional slots for our accounts.
    I would pay the full price of an expac to double my character slots. None of this "whole other account, whole separate sub" nonsense.

    I have a LONG LIST of stuff I want to know about. At the end of the day, there's only ONE thing I care about more than anything: Give me a Map of the Dragon Isles (and zones), please! I just want to see them!!!

    IIRC, they said they were far along into development, alpha could be rich

    I recall having a Continent Map for almost, if not every, prior expansion? Not knowing what the Dragon Isles look like on a Map drives me nuts!

    I'm not denying that Alpha/Dragonflight development "could" be VERY far along. However, even then, I imagine Blizzard would want to do a very specific/targeted test (initially) with the first LIVE build. For example, if they gave us 2 classes to test, and 1 leveling zone, that isn't to say they are WAY behind on everything else, they may just want to do a specific test ONLY on those 2 classes and 1 leveling zone.

    I have my doubts that could ever be balanced in a meaningful way.

    Seems to ripe for abuse, for one. Then you have the issue of having no accountability. What do you do when some DPS have tagged the same mob but can't meet the DPS threshold? You can't see who it is and you can't kick them, so its kind of inviting an environment of rage like you see with Shifting Stargorger in ZM.

    I feel like the maps are extremely under rated so I'm right there with you with the map excitement. Seeing new maps in a new ptr or beta build is always exciting to me.

    And people fall for it every single time.

    Not having all classes ready four months before launch feels pretty far behind though. This is one of the most important things to get it done right and at the start of the alpha they're still contemplating about talent trees without even having a first round of them ready? Uhm.

    At-least for me, the most exciting (initial) thing to see first is ALWAYS the Map(s) for the new Continent/Zones.

    Wow, I thought that it’s pretty much common to share that map excitement if not, I join the map club then!

    Everything I want to know about is Dracthyr/Evoker related.
    Their talent trees.

    How customizable the Dracthyr ‘barber shop armor’ is, since (from last we heard) they cannot wear/transmog a lot of normal armor.

    If Dracthyr can be their own mount outside of the Dragon Isles. (Outside of the “DH+ movement they mentioned)

    I think unfortunately its one of the downsides of them revealing and presenting the new expansion like that compared to the old BlizzCon panels. Even if there isn't polished map yet, normally we get a image of the concept and planning art they used.

    Unpopular opinion (maybe), but I am ALWAYS excited for a new expansion (doesn't matter if the previous expansion was good or not). IMO, nothing beats that excitement of the Announcement, Alpha, Beta, Pre-Patch, and official launch cycle. As others have said before, a new expansion will "usually" be exciting and fun (no matter what) for at-least that first month or so.

    Was excited for MoP because monks could roll... excited for WoD for new character models, excited for Legion because of pretty much everything, excited for BFA because of allied races and the zones, excited for Shadowlands because of the customization and now excited for DF because of new talents, dragonriding and dragon isles.
