    The Battle for Azeroth alpha/beta process has been one of the most dramatic yet, with Blizzard taking flat on all fronts, from storytelling to gameplay changes. Today we'll work out why this is happening, if it is overblown, and how some of it might just be Blizzard faking us out.

    What was wrong with: you want a new and better weapon, go raid and hunt for it.
    Not the: fill in the blanks and upgrade to standard we set.

    I just want the WarCraft story to be finished.

    WoD opened my eyes to the fact that Blizzard just wants to keep yanking that chain wrapped around our necks. "Hey! Come over here and fight this WORLD ENDING THREAT!... Okay, now stop THIS ONE! NOW THIS ONE!..." Repeat ad nauseam.

    I don't know how the citizens of Azeroth haven't committed mass suicide from the gross PTSD they've endured for the past 15 years. Hell, I'm surprised they haven't gone extinct from the countless conflicts alone. The real heroes are the babymakers and the food they feed those kids to make them grow so fast.

    Looking back it was more the Horde side of the community pissed off due to once again having them having to kill their warchief.

    The problem with this expansions is its neither "i am an adventurer or a I'm a hero" type game this expansions is a AvH which the vanilla lore has introduced and set in stone. Blizzard WE KNOW the 2 factions fight based on disagreeing. But can we get an expansion that doesn't shit the previous expansion please. Also can you complete your Lores? X amount of years later and each lore ending each death each moment where you felt something in this game felt mildly immersive. Blizzard needs to focus Lore for real.

    Time for a 3rd faction. Perhaps Cenarion, Tauran, Night Elves, Centaurs and southern Kalimdor. Feralas, Desolace, Ungoro. Build a new capitol at Feathermoon?

    Blizzard dont want an engaged playerbase. Maybe if this was sometime between 2004-2008 sure but now all they want is money. They have become greedy and arrogant from their fame we as players gave them. Now that they have it they no longer care. Why do you think in qna they almost never give a straight answer and always either skirt around it or deflect entirely. The answer is simple really. BLIZZARD DOES NOT CARE ABOUT ITS PLAYERS BECAUSE THEY WANT MONEY AND ALWAYS MORE.

    raise up and tell them what you think.

    They call us Dickbacks we call them DONE.
    Do not let them money grabbing Dickbacks walk over you.
    And this is what i have to say.
    I would like to have a 35 euro refund because i paid too much for BFA.
    BFA was and is nothing more than an alpha build and you know this.
    After a month the price was 15 ( already to mutch but still) and thus i would like a refund.
    the burning of teldrassil was nothing more then a scam to get in to your wallet.
    Its HYPE HYPE money money no content and offer a mount for 6 months subscription becouse FUCK YOU.
    FUCK YOU hard and deep and o yea give me more money.

    LFR, Heirlooms, Loot Systems, Insta max toons, cash shop, no need what so ever to level with people out in the world, no sense of an organized community or a game company that knows who they are marketing to anymore..pushing expansions simply because the company went from being renown by all to some capitalistic walmart mutation that just wants your money and banks off your fond memories you've made since vanilla. Blizzard has ruined Azeroth a long time ago. This game is like an ex love that I can't really let go. I know she's just trying to make power moves and thinks she has the upper hand, but the truth is that I'm addicted to her. All these fond memories are enough for me to look over the bad and just roll with it in some way. Someway through legion though, just felt like a different person entirely and now I find myself on a classic server getting to know what I was in awe over when I was just a very young boy. I dont like the new you b
