not going to pre-order it but I will try get into the alpha/beta to try it out. the 'new' talent system looks great as does the crafting changes... + who doesn't want to be a dragon?

I thought the new talent system looks a lot like the original talent system o_O

Are Acti-Blizzard still utter scum though, or is all forgiven?

Nah, maybe forgiven when Microsoft take over until then... not so much. Once Kotick is gone basically.

Aye, not impressed with what I've seen so far, just more of the same with a different coat of paint. Reckon I'll give this a miss until 2-3 months after launch, when people figure out what the cracks are. At this point they have to do a lot to beat FFXIV because FFXIV is shitting all over them from every conceivable angle.

Why do people still line up to be taken up the chuff?

Get rid. WoW is absolute shite, and you have to pay for it. It's literally the same thing, over and over and over again. The story is absolute pap. The company that produces it just wants to milk the ever dwindling playerbase dry. That's it, that's your use.

Bu, bu, but my friends play it! They also have several messaging services.

I dabble now and again but I ONLY buy subs for gold, got about 8 million gold left so outside of buying the expacs it costs me nowt to actually play it. I'll never pay a sub again for WoW, not unless when Microsoft finally takes over it becomes better... chances of that happening though? slim to none.

I'll likely buy a token or two/three for the nostalgia when WOTLK Classic comes out, bout it.

It is not shite though in the last few patches you can feel the positive changes in their decision making.

Are you in the Alpha? I watch a variety of streamers both positive and negative towards WoW but the one thing they currently leaning towards is that this xpak has the right beginnings.

I understand that once people get on a hate train it is difficult to get off. I also know that many of the streamers I watch played FF and rejoined the WoW community during the Zerith Morris content patch….

What is good is that those who went to play games that are not WoW is that they now have valuable comparisons including that the grass is not always greener. Interestingly Blizzard has invited some of their buggest critics to this alpha.

I have had a superb amount of fun in Shadowlands - there were issues with pacing and timelocked content not to mention the systems were complicated however life started to improve with Zerith Morris now we are in the final patch with season 4 starting in August which we know will be short due to the release of Dragonflight.

The one thing that always happens as release date gets closeris that those on the hate train become very vocal as if to qualify their own decision making.

For those of you who do come back for a month or two give me a shout and you are welcome to join us for that time - we are now old so only do heroic raiding and M+ pushing keys between 15 and 20 dependent on individual skill level.

Nah not in the Alpha, I've just been looking at some Twitch streamers that are now and again. My issue with WoW these days is just that no one I know plays it anymore, so I'm always sat with my thumb up my arse doing nowt.

I'll play, to get max level, pug raids, not do any M+ and then spend 1 month farming mounts and crafting as I always do. Maybe roll a new thing and level it up somewhere else.

Beta is starting talent trees are all out (although they need a little bit more work) it's looking good!
