    You know, player housing can be used for socializing, right? And people want to make it their own, not template generic faction base v1.0.

    They already drop so many resources on three other minority groups, why not the rest of the player base?

    because it sounds like you can get player housing for free. and ofc, for free everyone takes everything. but since Blizz invests already that less in all the other features, the poll question should be:

    Do you want player housing, when loosing even more typical content?

    or maybe something like

    Do you want player housing, instead of a new class?

    Acting like „yeah, we get a full featured xpac, way better than SL and player housing on top of it“ is hillarious naive. a feature like player housing is a tradeoff. and i would be more interessted in ppls opinion, when they not get something (regardless if player housing or a simple mount) for free, but have to accept tradeoffs.

    its hillarious to ask this. it’s the same as if i ask 100 ppls, if they wanna get 50cents for free. noone will say no. but if i ask them, if they walk 2 miles down the street for it, you get a way different result.

    imo.
    By your statement, the poll would have to have A LOT of selection options then, for the OP can't know it, so, you want the poll to be something like

    I have a sub, and I want housing at the cost of a raid tier.
    I don't have a sub, and I want housing at the cost of a raid tier.
    I have a sub, and I want housing at the cost of a class.
    I don't have a sub, and I want housing at the cost of a class.


    etc etc etc etc etc....

    I can understand not caring for it, but why would anyone be against it?

    do you think you get it for free?

    ppls act like they live in lala wonderland and missed the last few years. Blizz already invests less and less in wow. if you get player housing, you have a huge tradeoff. lets say you get a new xpac. no new zones, just some reworked old world, 3 dungeons, 1 raid per year. no new class. no new features. no good story or no story at all. but player housing. do you still want player housing?

    acting like it’s just for free, on top of a great xpac, is hillarious and naive AF.
    What? World players already sacrifice for Raid/M+/PvP players, you make it sound like adding housing is a new loss.

    Okay, but then we had expansions like MoP which gave you a new class, new race, pet battles, brawler's arena, a huge new continent, the farm, two islands with quests and things to do, a bunch of solid well loved loved raids and then suddenly you claim Blizzard to not being able to provide new content that would be on par with the above? Why do people claim getting one thing robs us of another? Blizz has proven they can provide more than one feature in an expansion without the rest being bad. Especially since Blizz claim to have the biggest team ever.

    The claim "it will cost us a raid tier" is just so fucking old and tired at this point because it's all up to Blizz what they want to add and they can if they want as MoP and Legion has proved.

    First they have to get wow good.
    All right, gentleperchildren, let's review. The year is 2022 - that's two-zero-two-two, as in the 21st Century's perfect vision - and I am sorry to say the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself, run by a bunch of double-masked tripple-jabbed sissies who stand with Ukraine.

    Are these the bits of content that people would rather have? Housing is permanent, it will take some resources to implement, but after that you can build on it in EVERY expansion by just adding bits here and there. It's has so much more longevity than any of the systems listed above, and it would not just last one expansion.

    You can not care, but how many of you really cared about any of the systems they've introduced lately anyway? The game boils down to raiding, PvP and M+ (which I highly doubt would change due to the inclusion of housing...); How much do you really care about the new systems that they add? Exactly what content would you want in its place? 'Anything' isn't an answer, give me an actual idea.

    I would take a system that I wasn't huge on but would add to the game over expansions any day, over a system that I probably won't care about that only lasts for one expansion.

    Read my post a few up (Posted 11:15).

    What exactly do you think we'd lose for Housing? Housing would last forever, not just for one expansion. We would be losing something akin to Torghast or Island Expeditions for it.

    Fair enough if you don't care, but I honestly think it's asinine to not see the benefits of housing. Frankly, I stand by what I said; It being a 'waste of resources' isn't relevant. We pay a lot for the game, it's Blizzard's job to make the game good. Just because they want to churn out an expansion every 2 years doesn't mean I should consider that when asking for new content, that's on them. I would rather wait 10 years for the dream expansion than have them rushing them out, but I agree that that's naïve to expect.
    If I could sacrifice Visions of N'zoth for player housing, and take Warfronts too, we're done with that, then I would be happy.

    The player base is so fractured and salty that the game will never reach an overall "good" statement anymore without investing development to lead the game forward for more people than just the raiders, PvPers and M+ runners.

    Garrisons would have been an awesome evergreen feature, but instead they screwed them up and then threw the entire idea out rather than fixing it. Come to think of it, they do that a lot.

    If its gonna be a carbon copy of the garrison, no.
    But if its done the same way as FF14, Lotro, Swtor and any other game with an actual solid player housing system, then yeah I would be down for that.

    Especially if it opened up the possibility of stuff like trophies from bosses being on display and such.

    Nope, never cared about player housing. But then again I don't think I'm your standard MMO player. I play WoW bececause the Mythic raiding is some of the hardest PvE content you can find and that's literally it.

    The Garrison had a lot of great assets and potential.

    100% the same here. It could open up so many fun avenues for decoration & customization, & breathe life into WoW's almost entirely forgotten content.

    My dream player housing would be ArcheAge, but no games seem to dare copy that (Your housing is actually out in the world).

    I'd go with a better version of FFXIV, their current setup is shit, but the content is great (items and sizes).
    LOTRO's version is adorably out of date, but it works, but's too linear, with little less freedom than FFXIV in the house.
    Played SWTOR before housing, so not experienced that.
    Wildstar's housing had GREAT potential, alas, the star burnt out too fast.

    And this is a good example of someone having found his/her home within the raiding category, enjoying themselves with the content they seek out from WoW, but player housing is more or less something needed in the 'world' category of World of Warcraft, for others to enjoy, like you, and the other groups are the minority to the content but flagged as the 'big boys'.

    I really dont care, so i voted for no. The time and work could be put in other Projects. Dont see any reason to do housing in wow/mmorpg overall. You either have small home that fits your class/in the world, or you have a way to big and to fancy home that doesnt fit into the world.

    So i dont need housing. And that is said by an big animal crossing fan.

    Yes, from the grave is the correct statement, but it to me, didn't beat the system and setup of ArcheAge's housing.

    FF14s concept of districts is great. Limiting them is weird.

    Indeed. That is the main bad of them, of course, there are other smaller problems, but the limitations are the main issue.

    Raiding/PvP/Mythic+ already expanded the cash shop, so, nothing new. There is a chance they would copy FFXIV's shop on that, as they are notorious on that part.

    If it brings in all the revenue and new/returning players that all the forum posters claim it'll bring for all these years now, then sure.

    I'm not going to ever use it myself though.

    I mean..theres nothing in the cash shop you NEED for raiding PVP or Mythic+
    you don't get gear from it at most you get a level boost the only things in game that is expanded by the cash shop is mount collecting and pet battles.

    Player Housing I can see them making it EXCLUSIVELY in the cash shop or all the good shit is there and occasinally something you get for "winning 10 pet battles"

    Well, of course, housing done the right way won't cost you extra.

    The token is there, and I can almost say with certainty that the majority of its sales are raiding/pvp/m+. It feels like nothing in the store can beat the token anymore in the sale, maybe server transfers.

    And if they added housing, they would be stupid to make it exclusive for the store, unless it is some dumb design like some of the mounts.
