    I'm voting 7, while I love a lot of the ideas being proposed, I want to see what weird way Blizzard decides to make them untenable before I decided to be hyped or not.

    An example being the conduit changes at launch, where were they limited? What's fun about that?

    Not saying they will, given their track record, but NOW they should have no excuse
    Idk if you have payed attention to the alpha or not, but balancing is not even close to the only thing they need to work on.

    This is a straight up early development alpha by everyone’s definition of the word, and they have just months to finish.

    I find it hilarious a lot of people kept saying “just wait till we see alpha we didn’t have blizzcon this year so I’m sure it’s way further along than we think”.

    It’s 100% not further along than we think. At this point they better set some groundbreaking deadlines and fix the game faster than anyone has ever seen this company do before or they will 100% delay it. It’s not looking great at this moment.

    Gonna be a 3 for me. While there's some aspects of it that could be good if executed correctly, there's even more ways Blizz could fall on their face in terms of design choices. Given the past two expansions, I'm more inclined to lean towards the latter. The burden of proof's ultimately on them, and what Blizz has shown of it so far hasn't had a single true "WOW" moment in general for me.

    The fact you've had this opinion since at least early 2021 and you're still here talking about how bad the game is and so on is just so comical. Glad I bookmarked your post history page 6~ months ago.

    Sure, game is dead to you. See you in DF. See you on these forums in 1, 2 and 3 years from now.

    No, just no. It would get 1, if it had no dragonriding and no new crafting system. It would have 3, if it still had something like Torghast/Warfronts/Islands.

    The Drakthyr race is simply the ugliest thing since leper gnomes.
    The crafting systems looks like Blizzards new token-sales endgame with supporting raid crafters with many coins.
    The world looks like a mix out of "everything green and popular".
    The ending is obvious. Kill Murozond. What a surprise!
    The dragonriding feature is nice, if there wasnt the grind which will enable it.
    The engame misses Torghast-like gameplay (and no, you do not need another borrowed power system to have gameplay like that)
    PVP is still unfair and gear-dependent while the limits are quite lower.
    The endgame is still focused on premade raids and mythic+
    World quests will still be dull and uninspired. You really think who is the target group of sending gnomes into the fire over and over. I especially mean which of it was meant to be fun.
    Renown will still be time gated.

    The expac is clearly a deevolution of the worst expacs Shadowlands and BFA. And the devs simply are too blind to see that. As usual.

    I never understand people like you. Can you not wrap your head around someone following the release of a new expansion of a game that they have played for years but don’t like the current state of it?

    I haven’t played retail since early-mid legion but I have always been on forums either discussing classic or watching retail development to see if it has changed into a game that I like again.

    Like does saving another posters history from 6 months ago of them doing the same thing like…. Prove something to you? I’m really not sure what you think this does?

    Not incredibly excited, but at least it seems that its going to be a lot better than Shadowlands. They got rid of most systems and try to bring back more of vanilla WoW's aspects like huge zones and talent trees. But its still very much lacking in (new) content despite adding both a new race and class.

    6 - I am optimistic. I am just waiting to find the catch where there is some gimmicky time gated bullshit that prevents me from doing the content I actually want to like there has been in the last three expansions.

    Most of what I have seen so far makes me optimistic. It seems they might have learned from some of their mistakes. I'm hopeful but I haven't played any of Shadowlands so who am I to say?

    Sounds like you have issues letting a game go and feel the need for others to give you confirmation on your feelings. Towards a game. On a fansite. For a game.

    Sheesh.

    After BfA, Shadowlands and Blizzard as a whole during the last years, wow needs to start making a lot of changes that appeal to me so that I can care to even go back to the game.
    This world don't give us nothing. It be our lot to suffer... and our duty to fight back.

    Don’t need confirmation from anyone? I just like using forums to discuss things I’m interested in. Such as games I have or want to play. You’re projecting super hard here pal, I’m not the one literally bookmarking what someone else said half a year ago to prove a point that they…. Disprove of how a game is going? That’s really strange and I’d steer clear of criticizing anyone for just simply stating their opinions on a website when you’re sitting here not only bookmarking past statements, but also remembering the username of these posters so much so that you recognize them when they post and remind them that you are stalking their posts.

    Bud…. Come on.

    My hype level is 2.

    The one and only vaguely interesting thing about Dragonflight is the dragon riding, which could be good but so far looks to be very disappointing.

My worry is that the lack of screaming is that there is simply nothing to scream at. The amount of content and stuff to do isn't exactly big. Then again, it reminds me of the older expansions (pre legion).

    Its going to be fine. *huffs copium*
    Pretty much this for me too. Taking a nice long pull of the copium and hoping for the best.

    I voted 3. Seems like it's going to be a rushed filler expansion, dracthyr make no sense being super soldiers built by deathwing when they look so fragile and dragonoids already exist. Nor does them having glam rock/scene girl visage forms make any sense. They literally sound like a 12 year olds fan fiction oc. Dragon riding seems like it will be a borrowed power that's abandoned next expansion.

    Good to see the majority being hyped for the expansion.

    Schadenfreude is addictive. I'm loving watching Blizzard and the game struggle.

    No, you won't see me in DF unless something very unexpected happens. If they make some big public mea culpa about the bad design philosophy that led them to SL, an d explain how that's all changed to a new design philosophy that I can accept, then I may come back. Just seeing them change details? Sorry, I have no trust in circumstantial evidence of a putative change of heart.

    3_instead giving us 8 new dungeons in m+ we only get 4 new and 4 old rehased one
    4)they are bringing back toxicity in form of removal of personal loot - guilds will again extort loot from players
    5)its rushed like hell - everyone know that it should be summer/autumn 2023 release - instead we will get another beta launch devoided of content.
    6)no casual friendly content was announced yet - its still usual content only for top 5%.

    so far my verdict is - i will stick to playing FF14 primarily - nothing they do in DF will bring back casual crowds back to wow.

    8 for me. Much of what they're doing is what IMO they should be doing. Taking WoW back to some basics, working on enhancing what we have & making it better with things like Dragon Riding as opposed to trying to force us into endless grinding, and a plot that's likely to be mostly fun dragon stuff as opposed to 25D Sylvanas Chess. Plus we've needed a new class for a while & the Evoker sounds like it absolutely plays differently than the other DPS/Healing classes out there. If it comes out as it appears to be, it's just WoW which is what we've wanted for a while.

    There's definitely a few things that could be better. I'd love to see someone get a tanking spec to add in potential new tanks, and only having Male BE & Female Human visages is kinda weird. But overall I think it'll be fun!
