    It's honestly difficult for me to choose.

    The leveling experience was pretty great in all of them. But after that, they all fell off REALLY fast.

    But if I had to choose one over the others, it would be BfA simply because I played it more and did enjoy the time I spent there. But I took a LOT of time off during BfA.

    WoD just didn't have much for me to do as a non-raider and SL feels like a never ending list of chores to do, especially as someone who enjoys playing alts. I log into SL and just feel overwhelmed with tasks to do to get to where I want to be, as someone who's not in a super active guild and therefore having to rely mainly on dungeon queue and luck of finding Mythic+ groups to gear my characters. It's not fun, at all. I used to feel compelled to resub once the LFR Wing 4 opened up and could see the entire new raid, but with the amount of crap to get through to get geared enough to even queue, and the amount of time it takes, I CBA to do even that. Even with the Korthia catch up gear....that means I have to actually spend time in Korthia, which is awful, as it yet again just feels like a chore list.

    Warlords by far, why? while there was lack of content, the raids were fun as hell and classes werent butchered for wierd fantasies (outlaw rogue, seriously if i wanted to be a pirate i would mog my gear to look like one. Survival hunter, why they made it meele i will never understand and they ruined a specc that been loved and cherised for over a decade. Demo lock, do i need to say more?). Seriously, i gladly have wod over BFA and SL any day.

    People dislike systems and "mandatory" grind. WoD had none of that nonsense. If you were a raider this expansion was golden, just like MoP.

    BfA. Despite it's flaws, 8.2 was one of my favorite patches

    It's a tie between WoD and BfA for me, all of the expansions pale in comparison to the others released (like MoP which daily quests for valor, reforging and PvP being the biggest complaints) with Shadowlands definitely being the worst in all aspects while WoD suffered from Lack of End Game for a long time and an unsatisfying cut short expansion when the story still had potential and direction to develop (SL's really doesn't) while BfA had some pretty terrible systems with Anima Powers and Corruptions (yet not as bad as SL), dreadfully bad writing in parts and wasted characters (SL still tops that by assassinating entire expansions worth of development). Yet it's hard to point at one and go that was worse. Though WoD did have the better leveling and garrisons were interesting at the start before it quickly went downhill while BfA had problems from launch.

    Yeah I'd rather have nothing than a bunch of shitty systems. Seems that a lot of people felt the same way and unsubbed.
    What's different this time around is that now there's actually a viable alternative game. This time there's a very real possibility that the people who've been let down again and again are gone for good.
    MMORPGs are a huge time investment, most people only have time for one. Pissing away your customer base like Blizzard has done since Ion took over is a really bad way to run a game of this genre.

    WoD had an entire patch for twitter integration and a selfie camera (which, by the way, has been broken for years now). The Mythic tier sets for the last raid were ugly as fuck, and Tanaan Jungle makes Korthia look like a masterpiece.

    As bad as SL is, it cannot touch WoD in terms of suck.

    SL - > WoD - - - - - - - - > BfA.
    - Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle… and wonder if we’ll ever get the chance to kill him.

    WoD hands down. I actually played the entire expansion, I enjoyed PVP immensely during this xpack.

    BFA and Shadowlands barely held my attention for a combined total of 3 months (between the two xpacks).

    WoD was shit but at least it had the good class design of MoP.

  12. #172
    WoD leveling was great. Garrisons were fun and had a little seed of potential there, but they wasted it.

    gameplay-wise it was the worst at the time for sure, pruning was literally no fun allowed
    ...that's just my opinion, anyway.

    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    i can't believe we live in a timeline where even wod has rose tinted goggles.
    SL is the most enjoyable of the three. by far.

    WOD. At least I could just raid log and tend the garrison garden for all my supplies.

    And as I said, I have no interest in that content. No other end game activity requires you to do others to be sufficient for it. If you do normal difficulty dungeons or raids, getting normal difficulty gear, you will never randomly come across mythic difficulty bosses while doing them.

    You mean the mandatory grind of getting a legendary ring on any character you wanted to play? All SL has is renown, dunno why people keep acting as if it's a grind when its so quick to do.

    WoD was absolutely the worst.
    Raid or die being the absolute worst thing to be stuck with. Both BfA and SL beat it out solely because of M+ alone. The amount of guilds that just collapsed because of the mythic raiding change too, which just escalated the faction divide issue.

    No, but you WILL play with other players who have chosen to raid heroic or mythic, and they will greatly outperform you. If you want rated, competitive pvp it exists - you can do that content, blizzard provide it for you.

    Blizzard have offered you a solution to your "problem", rated pvp, and you CHOOSE not to play that content. This is on you, no one else.

    That's a flat out lie. The pruning happened in WoD: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/ne...-garden-of-war

    Legion tried to counterbalance the pruning by giving players new stuff through Artifacts.

    WoD didn't have much content, but we could play alts for variety, on the other hand, SL's Jenga-tower of systems makes even thinking of doing all that again on an alt a very off-putting notion...
    Pretty much this. When I started to feel a bit bored with the content in WoD I levelled my WW monk pretty much entirely through arena skirmish and had an absolute blast because back then even low level characters felt more fun to play than max level characters do these days and Blizzard hadn't aborted their PvP community yet so people actually queued for skirmish even in low level.

    I mean specs like Frost DK lost ~15 spells going from WoD to Legion and glyphs were removed. You bars were absolutely barren when the pre-patch hit the servers.
