    BFA started off dogshit, but ended being pretty fun.
    Shadowlands started off lukewarm and ended lukewarm.

    Key difference is that, unlike legion or BFA, shadowlands doesn't have the over-the-top final tier scaling where everyone is doing stupid numbers. Legion's double legendary and fully unlocked artifacts, as well as BFA's corruption gear and essences, basically turned even the most casual player into a steamroller. All shadowlands is getting for its final season is an ilvl bump and the privilege to run old content.

      Also Shadowlands got retarded tier in the last patch with some specs like destro and survival just tripling their damage from it

      Thanks for putting into words what I felt was missing from Shadowlands. Just even more proof of how fucking shitty that expansion it is.

        more like half of people only remember the first patch because they unsub after that, the other half only remember the last patch, making it impossible for these two groups to come to consensus

        Yes they do. They complain because 99% of the system they add are initially horseshit, and are either made good after the fact (M+, Legion Legendaries) or are just deleted from the game (Azerite gear, domination sockets). People praise legion for legendaries because they're basing it off their experience post-tomb when acquisition was largely fixed, or praise AP because at that point you got 10 trillion for just sneezing. BFA gets shit on for AP because they completely reverted on its acquisition, and also tied it to something that was significantly less interesting or fun than an artifact weapon.

            wowhead comments are a worse barometer for community opinion than even Ganker. Imagine the type of subhuman that would create an account on that website in order to then comment on posts, and then ask yourself if you'd trust such an entity's views on anything.

          It wasnt even touched until 7.3.5
          Tomb was when you gambled on broken shore items then hated yourself if you did other content and reset your bad luck protection early for some shit legendary
          >or praise AP because at that point you got 10 trillion for just sneezing. BFA gets shit on for AP because they completely reverted on its acquisition
          They changed it from amping up the AP gained to lowering the cost to level, functionally the same without the d3-tier number inflation that players literally complained about
          And end of BFA had targetable essecnes (they were always targetable actually), Azerite and Corruption yet doesnt get the pass Legion did that even at the end had pure RNG for the NLC
          There is exactly 0 consistency in the complaints

            Legion gets a pass because the rest of the game was enjoyable: good raids, M+ being a brand new gameplay loop, a narrative that at least scored points because it was just nostalgia wanking, etc. People were willing to look past the initial shitfest because actually playing the game was fun. BFA's early additions that weren't just brought over from legion, islands, battelfronts, azerite gear, sucked so much ass they were basically ignored or replaced by the first patch

              >good raids
              EN, ToV and ToS were all awful. Antorous was aggressively mediocre
              >M+ being a brand new gameplay loop
              CMs but we overtuned the rewards
              >a narrative that at least scored points because it was just nostalgia wanking
              This is just a roundabout way of saying anyone defending legion is 60 IQ
              >islands, battelfronts, azerite gear, sucked so much ass they were basically ignored or replaced by the first patch
              All of those continued to see updates. We got a 2nd warfront, heroic warfronts, azerite gear got expanded and remained core, new islands were added and new rewards to islands were added

    Path 8.3 with buyable corruptions was actually really nice, I never had so much fun in WoW as when I maxed out stats with corruptions on all pieces of gear, felt like cheating. I could literally carry epic bg by myself and end up with 200+ killing blows.

            At least it felt like Warcraft, unlike BFA and SL.
            >piss easy open world
            Who cares about open world difficulty? Are you some kind of casual solo player that only does dailies and world quests?
            >every single post launch dungeon just terrible for m+
            Yes, but post launch dungeons being bad is pretty much norm in every expansion.

    Blizzard took all the wrong lessons from Legion which is why BFA was shit. Shadowlands was an attempt to fix the issue without actually listening to the playerbase(covenants, soulbinds, etc) but a atrocious failure. Dragonflight looks like it's another attempt to fix the issue, if they fail again it's over.

      Dragonflight is unironically exactly what the game needs right now: some fanservice to keep the casuals placated while they unfuck the core systems by rolling all the various borrowed power shit into the talent trees instead of having it be borrowed power.
      As long as the talent trees and the raids end up being good it's on track for being one of the best expansions.
