I lost all hope of WoW becoming my dream MMORPG (the mythical living/breathing world) but maybe it's not totaly doomed.
In the blue post announcing patch 7.3
, Blizzard wrote: "we’re also designing areas with sandbox elements
intended to be enjoyed even after you complete the main quest".
Sandbox... In WoW!! Now that's something I wasn't expected!
Do you think they're slowly realize that the themepark model isn't sustainable and they *have* to introduce some kind of player-created content if they want to last?
Maybe it will be a test before adding more in next extension...
And what kind of sandbox elements could they add? Probably not housing (won't interact well with the class hall) but what about private-contracts (players created quests), or maybe small scale politics like becoming a local general...
