Review of World of Warcraft Legion the SIXTH expansion since 2004. After spending a few weeks playing this game and leveling to 110 I then began the end-game process PvPing and... PVEing...WHAT??? ME<<< PVE<<<???!!!?!? That is fucking right...fuck this expansion and here is why...
Subjectively speaking, I am highly disappointed in this expansion and I am an old-school vanilla WoW player. What does that mean for those who played this game since 2005? Simple, MOVE ONTO ANOTHER MMO but that is highly unlikely since the MMO genre is dominated by Blizzard's titanic World of Warcraft and no other MMO developer could ever break through the subscription numbers. Today in Legion the gaming community is dominated by snot millennial's who do not understand game play mechanics because they did not play 10 years ago when true gamers understood their class mechanics and role. The HK system is taken away and gear is unified, universal, and has no statistical meaning in player versus player. The HK system is gone. Now when you enter a PVP, Arena, Battle Ground, or group, your stats are universally adjusted.
Before Legion, the mechanics set the game apart from the average shithead player from the more serious gamer which, I subjectively believe that this game has destroyed all hopes and love of the original game-play.
Now you have to PVE in this expansion to PVP. WHAT THE TITTY-TROLL FUCK??!?!?!
This is annoyingly accomplished by finishing and farming story line reputation in the zones of Legion. Since PVP gear has been eliminated from vendors if you do not understand the system then you never played World of Warcraft.
Warlords of Draenor, the previous expansion was solid. Blizzard retained the 10-12 million subscribers for a few months, separating the average peasant player from the players that were more competitive. Blizzard took too much away from the game in this exapnsion. What set WoW apart in the MMO genre was the PVP system, to retain and attain higher tier gear which, set that person and player apart from the masses. YES, sometimes that created the elitist mentality however, there was a sense of accomplishment that you rose above the peasants and masses as a WoW gamer.
CAN YOU PLAY YOUR FUCKING CLASS?!
Before Legion, the proper player versus player process was queuing into the battleground, you farmed the respective Honor Kills (HK) and that was used as currency for the base PVP gear. As the player progressed you would also farm tokens for higher level tier PVP gear in rated and or, arena-type game play. This really set the game style apart from those who could not play their class. In piece of SHIT LEGION, you have masses of players who do not understand class mechanics and objectives. Although from Blizzard's point of view, the developer eliminated countless of talents and abilities in this expansion to simplify the game play. I have found, as well as other serious WoW gamers, this overly simplified the experience because now a lot of abilities are missing from classes that old-school World of Warcraft players are used to. A player used to get out of situations by utilizing class mechanics, now this game is less situational, you press six abilities and you're done. Some gamers like that but the more experienced gamers are left screaming out loud because this expansion fucking sucks!!!
