    The problem arises because half of the time, what they say in interviews goes directly against what you see in-game, or are such wild, poorly thought statements ("one Legion across all different timelines", anyone?) that you can't help but to think WTF was the guy thinking when he said that in public.

    I don't understand this hate and desire for things to burn either. I quit back in early Legion, and I still am not hoping that WoW will fail, even if I never intend to play it ever again. Just petty idiots and losers being petty and mad. I just hang around a bit to see what's happening... I wouldn't really consider them worth noticing, let alone making a thread over.

    Sometimes I feel "problem" is that game is developing at all. They sit unhealthy amount of time to catch pixels, then they doesn't have that time/passion anymore, but game is moving on and no one gives a shit about their past achievements.

    And people with inflated ego that still have this time to play game (so mostly streamers) get this awful habit "this is how things should be run, Blizzard is so stupid nowadays" like they know how to run game cause they play it 10+ years.

    WoW is a video game where you slay internet dragons for imaginary loot. The countless red shirt guys on this forum pushing their glasses onto their noses and saying "WELL ACKTSHUALLY..." are not the crowd that their outward facing press junkets are designed to be targeted at.

    I mean its internet 101 these days.. if "you" don't like it then it must burn because the universe has only one purpose and that is to serve "you". Usually comes from people that need the government or their parents to help pay their bills to keep that one bedroom flat dream alive. Not to much to worry about to be honest.

    Well what do you expect from players that played this game for 15+ years when they feel shat on? (but you could always quit if you don't like the game waaah).., well it's not that simple is it? WoW is like a 10+ year relationship where you have the good mixed with the bad but you are always on the edge but can't make up your mind (P.S. I do feel they dropped the ball on Shadowlands, TBC ftw)

    Thanks for unironically proving my first post in this thread correct I guess.

    Blizzard has been underpaying staff from before Activision it was only a matter of time before that would effect the games.

    We've been over this already. I am the protagonist of reality. If i like things, they should exist, if i dislike things, they shouldn't exist. If a thing is good or bad is solely up to my discretion. I am the arbitrator of objective quality. I am right, and you can only be right by agreeing with me. I am based, and you are not.

    I mean tbh I've lurked these forums since before I quit during the end of WoD, and watched these forums for years until I came back for SL briefly (no i didn't quit again due to distaste for the game, just got stuck in a scenario where i needed to find a whole new guild for my current life's schedule). When you're so used to checking them for years, its honestly weird not checking them on occasion.

    The ones who seem to take blizzard's actions personally though definitely need to check their priorities though.

    I have absolutely no problem admitting that I enjoy seeing people who have upset me fail. I don't care if it's childish, spite feels good.

    The game is flawed. The game doesn't receive as much development input as it needs. But if your "criticism" is nothing more than some burning desire to see the game completely crash and burn along with everyone who plays it...then that's not healthy.

    Ultimately, why are you even here. #TouchGrass.
    i don't want the game to fail. i want it to thrive. the issue is it will never thrive under current management. so if the game needs to fail to finally get new management, great. if wow ends up dying because of the fail, that would be incredibly sad but i'd rather have wow remembered for when it was good and fun and not the mess it is now. i.e. i'd rather the game die right this instant than see it destroyed anymore.

    Who's to say the game isn't thriving right now?

    As others have indicated, Blizzard's in an impossible situation in terms of making the playerbase happy, because the playerbase itself is so diverse. I've played since basically the beginning (started about a month after launch) and I'm fine with the way the game has evolved. As long as dungeons and raids are done well, I'm happy. I like the focus on more competitive gameplay. I'm not the best player but gaming is fun to me when I have a challenge to overcome or when I can find ways to push myself.

    Now if pvp or good traditional rpg storytelling is your thing, I don't know why you'd stick around for this game. It seems that other games do it much better. I don't know that either of these things were ever the strong point of WoW to begin with, so being agitated about something getting worse that was never good to begin with seems fruitless.

    the massive lose of subs a few months after the expac comes out starting in wod. people only unsub when they don't have content. this means people don't think there is enough meaningful content outside of end game. notice how vanilla, tbc, wrath, and cata (to an extent. cata started the whole nerfing entire raid tiers) didn't lose massive amounts of players in a short time frame? if blizz can't even keep a steady amount of players, the game isn't thriving.

    It is as simple as quitting. It is entertainment. If you don't enjoy it then stop playing. There is no reason to keep trashing it like many people do even if you felt betrayed by the developers.

    Clearly Blizzard has a lot to learn from this constructive criticism.
    you are generalizing way too much.
    also blizzard ignores all feedback even constructive. they only care about money. they have a lawyer in charge of WoW who is pro mythic and hates alts. that should say a lot.
    the report systems sucks and the mods are bias.

    That isn't an indication of thriving or not though. The game is working on its 17th year now. There are millions of ex-players that likely come back and try an expansion to see some of the new content and quit. You always have that launch surge with any game and there are many that likely treat it as any other non-mmo game where they play for a few weeks then it gets forgotten.

    Vanilla, TBC, and WotLK was also 15 years ago. The game came out at the right place and time. There are a lot more options now a days with a lot more popular genres then an MMO. It is why games like Fortnight, Apex, etc can become overnight superstars. Right design in the right place at the right time.

    Oh, Blizzard stopped releasing their subscriber numbers yet you somehow still have access to them. Care to share your source?

    When "ignoring feedback" simply means "not doing exactly what I think is best," it's hard to process that take seriously.
