    Add–on delights old players with its complexity and incline to the past. It also offers an ideal start for new players. [Issue#248]

    There is no doubt that Warlords of Draenor is one of the most innovative and well done expansions achieved by Blizzard.

    The reason World of Warcraft has proven to stand the test of time has everything to do with its ability to cater to a wide array of different types of gamers, and Warlords of Draenor only pushes the envelope even further.

    The new expansion of the Blizzard MMORPG has a lot to offer: a great storyline, the new garrison and the boasted "back to the roots". If you're looking for a reason to return to Azeroth, well, you've found it.
  5. This time, Blizzard offers excellent content for WoW players. Warlords of Draenor doesn't bring revolutionary changes. But it makes the World of Warcraft experience even deeper with great story-telling and new Garrison system.

    Warlords of Draenor brings you back to the roots of World of Warcraft. And it feels good. Draenor looks good and brings a cool new storyline, with lots of new content and of course garrisons. It's too bad the game isn't very challenging and didn't add a new race.

    By far the best-looking World of Warcraft expansion yet, and it's filled with quality content. However, the character and stat overhaul has left the gameplay feeling a little too simple and rote.

    I changed my initial 2/10 to a perfect 10. Now that the glitches are away, this game is simply the BEST WOW since Vanilla.
    Quests are crazy
    I changed my initial 2/10 to a perfect 10. Now that the glitches are away, this game is simply the BEST WOW since Vanilla.
    Quests are crazy dynamic, Challenge is back. The art is stunning, the music is awesome and quite frankly I don't know any other game that took me by surprise as this one,... except perhaps Vanilla WOW...

    Good God what changes Blizzard has made.

    I spent 58,00€ only to witness not one but THE worst game start in modern gaming history. What is starting really good with interesting questsI spent 58,00€ only to witness not one but THE worst game start in modern gaming history. What is starting really good with interesting quests and a dark atmosphere quickly turns into a disaster. Virtually everything is broken right after the player finished the prologue. The game suffers by phasing-bugs, the gigantically announced garrison is nothing more than a bottleneck every player is forced to finish. This in particular results in hundreds of players waiting to finish one specific quest. Some of them for more than 24 hours. There's tons more to list, like unusable quest items, de-spawning quest mobs and extreme lag issues. But let's finish this with a simple bottom line: Invest your money into something useful and stay away from WOD. Expand

    The first thing is there is no technical support at all. Tickets is the only way to contact them if you have an actual problem. They willThe first thing is there is no technical support at all. Tickets is the only way to contact them if you have an actual problem. They will acknowledge the problem and do nothing about it. They have built a system to shield themselves from the customer while they provide no support. The game areas now are very small and to fix this they do things like take away flying to "make it more immersive" meaning we built a small area being lazy and this is how we are trying to combat it. You can unlock flying but its a long achievement to do so once you do this you realize how small the new areas really are. Since prepatch for legion the servers are plagued with crashes and resets almost everyday. During this the raids. dungeons, and quests reset randomly sometimes. Which Blizzards reply is "well keep trying it". This game could still be good but apparently they have gone the route of provide little content and get as much out of the consumer as they can. They now also sell mounts and pets you cannot get in the game for a bigger cash grab. Expand

    Catastrophic launch from one of the best mmos in the last 10 years. This expansion is just a former self of the legendary Burning Crusade.Catastrophic launch from one of the best mmos in the last 10 years. This expansion is just a former self of the legendary Burning Crusade. While the launch has been truly bad, game itself is much worse than just mediocre. This is a big step backwards. WoW series aren't the biggest rpg series in the world, and they for sure never got that RPG element in the game. Expand
