    Where? I'm only seeing a comment on outward appearance ("seem to dislike") and no denigrating language at all.

    Calling someone's opinion a bunch of bullshit is not problematic to you? Well I guess not.

    The expansion should have been a Northrend revamp with the Maw as the only Shadowlands zone we visit in regular gameplay. Maybe Oribos as well.

    All the Shadowlands denizens would have instead come to us. Most of the Shadowlands stuff would be left up to your imagination, beyond the fact that there is more to it than just the Maw.
    Stuff like the Kyrians would not be explained much beyond them existing, and the Mawsworn being Kyrians who have allied with the Jailer.

    While we would lose out on a few cool visuals like Revendreth, we would also not have to see the Shadowlands overexplained and would instead have the mystery of how the Shadowlands actually functions left to the imagination.

    Pretty much all the relevant plotlines could be brought over wholesale as well if that is an issue. You would just not be able to do zone specific stories. But the return of Kel'thuzad as a leader of Maldraxxi traitors, the defection of Kyrians, permanent death of wild gods, and reveal of the Dreadlords, are all plotlines that could be done just as well outside the Shadowlands.
    Imo I would have made the Shadowlands NOT be a separate realm. Death itself, like every other force in its pure form, would be unknowable. However I'd have the Shadowlands be a transitive plane; a shadow of reality. In short, I'd have it be where we literally go in game when we die. Combine this with a Northrend Revamp and have the different places of the Shadowlands essentially be places were reality and the realm beyond the Veil are different. Think Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver or Legends of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Dying in this revamped version of Northrend would not disable your abilities, it would be how you'd travel between two different versions of the same zone (utilized to create all manner of interesting puzzles for solo exploration). Covenant abilities or whatever would have been about traveling back and forth between the two realms.

    They added a new Beta realm called Valdrakken, perhaps an endgame testing realm?

    New expansion, new stat squish.

    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    Cue four months of wonky scaling making soloing legacy content impossible.

    I would not mind to have same numbers as in SL for ever.

    They're adjusting ilvl and stat curve to be linear from 1 to 60 instead of suffering from BFA endgame bloat at lvl 50 so it will be wonky for couple fo builds now.

    This. Wowhead has a good graph to show what this means.

    Frankly? No. Opinions don't have any special right to not be called out as dumb.

    It's normal. Notice how in SL it's more or less linear from 1 to 50. We will see same sharp increase in 60-70 now. Funny how some people view this or XP changes as "fixing game".

    It's not a squish, it's rescaling for leveling.

    if i can level 70% faster through 50-60 then it is a win because SL leveling is garbage

    Afaik you don't even need to set foot into the Shadowlands becuase Chromie doesn't punt you out until you're 60 and ready to jump straight into Dragon Isles. Wonderful as I'd never enter that horrid realm willingly, even for just a couple of hours.

    Looks like the color palette was picked by someone colorblind. Hurray for diversity I guess!
