I've pretty much quit for now. I don't mind the grind but I was looking forward to all the new BFA stuff like Warfronts and Islands but they're a massive disappointment. When I logged in the other day and saw that 7 day timer on top of knowing there would be another 7 days of Warfront "contribution", I stopped logging in. Maybe I'll be back for 8.1-2.

Doing dungeons and raids again would be OK but a bunch of stuff on the GCD slows combat down too much, abilities were pruned and we got nothing new in return, and even getting loot isn't exciting because of the mess of worthless azerite traits. It all just makes the core gameplay loop feel worse than Legion, and I couldn't think of anything to do right now in WoW because it was actually fun instead of feeling like a chore.

I'm playing ESO right now, but more for a lack of anything new catching my eye. Crowfalls on my short-list of stuff to try but I'm pretty done with paid betas and early access BS so I'm waiting on a full launch.

I agree with you Hawkleberryfin.  They brought some of the best parts of Legion which is great but the new BFA stuff is disappointing. I am hoping for some good changes with patches but it seems the devs just have a big disconnect with the player base.  The only reason I log in now is a few world quests here and there trying to unlock Mag'har Orcs.

Warfronts would have been much better IMO if it was actually PVP.

Yeah it is really stupid.  The whole expansion is this Horde vs Alliance theme yet one of the big features, Warfronts, is a boring 20 minute PVE encounter.

I hope they make Warfronts PvP at some point. At least do what they did with Island Expeditions, add an option for a PvP version of the map.

As much as I want it I doubt it’ll happen. What’s ironic is this is suppose to be the AvH expansion but WARfronts doesn’t have any PvP.

Yeah, I kinda stopped when all I had to do was WQs and the final story arc.  I couldn't do THAT because I couldn't get a dungeon queue going when I'm usually on.. now granted I wasn't super persistent (like twice heh).  But all the fun from the quests - which I REALLY enjoyed - was pretty much over.  And to get those classes I want I'd have to go BACK to Legion to grind out. *sigh*  I don't think I got enough faction to continue with actual quests in Zandalar either. bleh.  I just despise faction grinding.  Just give me quests and I'd happily do those.  WQs are NOT quests.. they're cheap repeatables.

I can honestly say I really enjoyed the story this xpac. I raided a touch, but either I'm getting old or raids are just not as engaging as they once were. I unsubbed and uninstalled. Not much point in chasing haste upgrades for content I'm not really enjoying.
