    Blame the purple haired fatty women and young male hipsters at blizzard for that

    In all honesty, I too had a feeling of "this is cool, but feels more like a new game than Warcraft". Which isn't a bad thing, just something I noticed.

    Now frankly? I'm sick of seeing existing races "showing up and building towns" in EVERY freaking new zone we encounter. It legitimately ruins the game for me. I'm sick of human and Orc architecture, and I'd legitimately be happy to never see buildings from either faction ever again. I like the idea of "exploring unknown territory", and when there are already settlements, it kills that vibe.

    I do wonder what the Shadowlands will represent for WoW long-term, though. I suppose D&D long prior established the idea of visiting "different planes of existence", so it could work. I think the Shadowlands feel way too "Good vs. Evil", though, and that's a recurring problem with WoW. Would be nice to see them abandon these "big narratives", and focus on actual world-building. I believe it's one of the reasons The Mandalorian is so well-received.

    It was also alluded to multiple times in past expansions and storylines, with proper buildup leading up to it, and wasn't abruptly introduced into the story as shock value.
    Blizzard's cutting corners again? Yare Yare Daze...

    Shadowlands doesn't have any of that. It's all completely different to the point where it feels like I'm playing some chinese knockoff of wow.
    Even the loading screen looks more like something out of Narnia and that movie sucked.
    Also, the fact that they added a bunch of existing characters that just sit in a corner in Oribos doesn't help.

    This is my main gripe with the expansion and wanted to ask if anyone feels the same way.
    TBH the afterlife seems way too much like Azeroth IMO. Could have gone weirder.
