Reminder to take the BfA uproar with a grain of salt

Although it is widely accepted that the game currently has problems, I’d like to emphasize the importance of thinking for yourself. Ask yourself: “Do I sincerely believe that Actiblizzard is deliberately driving this multi-million dollar game into the ground?” Although people with negative opinions are significantly more vocal about it, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are the majority.
As for the problems frequently talked about the next patch coming next Tuesday will address many of them, including but not limited to:

  • Azerite traits
  • Azerite gear availability
  • Class tuning
  • Professions

Call me an Activision shill or an alt of Ion all you want; freedom of opinion is by all means justified. All I ask is to be more aware of the threat of mass hysteria. A mob mentality is the last thing this prestigious game needs.

I think it’s understandable if some people are mad, but I wouldn’t throw them all into the conspiracy buckets.

You can still love Blizzard, love WoW, and think that BfA is lackluster. You can also think BfA is great, as some do. The feedback is always coming from a place of wanting to see the game be better.

8.1 won’t address all of the concerns, but it will address some of them. Is it enough? No of course not. There’s still a lot to do.

I see what you’re trying to say, but I don’t think assuming that anyone having anything negative to say automatically believes the idea that “WoW is being purposefully driven into the ground” is what you should be doing to try and get that across.
