Is Legion the best PAID expansion for any MMO?

    I honestly came here, trying to find out why people claim Legion is the best Expac.. for me it was Wotlk, with WOD being a close 2nd. I find Legion dull, i couldn't stay behind a month sub, been here since Vanilla, and i feel like this was the least interesting of any of the WoW Expacs - With WOD they got into a lore based content re-hashing cycle i do not like, but with Legion it's so painfully deja vu, i can't, i just can't.. i don't get the fanboyism over this expac. It's not fun. At all. The things i liked about WOD are gone, replaced with a weak substitute.. the lore is recycled, the mechanics are the same old concept but pruned down.. it's boring.

    -FF XIV: ARR is by far the best expansion ever made.-

    That's a reboot, hardly an expansion, but best expansion ever would be indeed either Planes of Power or Shadows of Luclin.

    Legion is the expac that kept me for the shortest amount of time.  It has the most obvious repetition and grind compared to others.  Takes forever to achieve anything and that involves going round the same old World Quests day after day.  Other expacs seemed to hide it a bit better and there was more variety.  This is the pits and it's why my sub ran out yesterday. Not only did I unsub, but I destroyed all my equipment and deleted my character as I never want to be tempted back in as I reflect on the many hours wasted in the game when I could have done something more interesting with that time.  It does suck you in when you have invested a lot of time, but it's not productive and I've come to see that. Looking back, it all seems no childish now and the game is aimed at the younger generation that flood the chat channels with immaturity.  I'm glad to be moving on as the game has served its purpose.
    i feel the exact same about the game nailed it on the head for me i stuck around for the whole wod expac. i really liked the whole quest chain to get your legendary but they f'd that up with legion its dumb now imo

    While I do have my craving's for WoW at times I do think Legion crushed it for me in a way with the artifacts. One of my favorite things was trying to get all the weapons I could for my class and I can't do that in Legion anymore. Wrath was my favorite expansion mostly because I was a fan of Arthas storyline.

    burning crusade was the best but its not exactly had much competition since  has it, since Activision merged with  blizzard it went down hill , and imo its why they wont make vanilla servers because they dont want to admit that when they merged they ruined the game.

    Legion is better than WoD, partly because of the clever way they make you keep recycling content, perhaps without your knowledge. However, it's overall pretty boring. It doesn't hold a candle to Burning Crusade.

    Guild Wars Eye of the North was the best expansion ever imho

    You got me. GW1 was epic as hell. The best expansions period. GW1 is so vastly better than GW2 its crazy. You had so many skills, different builds, combos of classes. And even the Necromancer in GW1 was epic. The necro in GW2 is stupid. But expansion wise...

    GW1 had my favorite expansions of any game. There wasn't one expansion I didn't like in GW1, and they added SO much.

    Since I consider City of Villains an expansion to City of Heroes, I definitely think of it as the best expansion of any game to date..

    If I were to continue listing some good expansions, I would probably say WoW: Wrath of the Lich King and WoW: Legion..

    I'll never know if Legion is the best paid MMO expansion because I stopped playing before I finished Wrath of the Lich King. I'm going out on a limb here, but Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor were not so stellar in reviews, so even if Legion is good or even the best, it certainly doesn't make up for the past decade of crap they put out.

    City of Heroes 'City of Villains' expansion was the best for how much it remade a game the way it should have been and added tons of content.

    ***ADDED AS AN EDIT***

    City of Villains was a standalone game rather than an expansion, but you could buy CoV and add it to your City of Heroes account as an expansion pack.  90% of sold CoV boxes were added to an existing CoH account, so no matter what it was designed for, it ended up being an expansion.

    ***END EDIT***

    Not far behind was one of the best expansions for any game ever - Orsinium for Elder Scrolls Online.

    Legion is by a significant margin the worst of the expansions.  More people have quit playing Wow under Legion than any other expansion.

    You are by no far stretch a moron if you think that. Or you have no clue what you re talking about. The game is very active , and guaranteed not losing the people you say it is, for a person not even playing.

    I got so bored of Legion so quickly.
  • RidelynnRidelynn Member EpicPosts: 6,826
    It's good. I enjoy playing it, and it did bring me back to WoW after a long lapse from Cata/Panda/Draenor

    The best? Eh... I don't even think it was the best of the WoW series, let alone the best of any paid xpac.
  • SirAgravaineSirAgravaine Member RarePosts: 518
    No, Burning Crusade and Wrath were both superior, not to mention other games.

    70% drop in player activity within 6 months of the release of the expac. Can the other WoW expacs claim that too ?
    He didnt say the game isnt active. 
    Maybe YOU should check the facts before you guarantee its not losing people like Ozmodan says.

    I think the best expansion was when SWG added housing and player run cities.  I loved Legion, and played it a lot but wasn't worth renewing my sub.

     I would say Nightfall, probably the largest content wise, loads of new mechanics and overall very fun to play.

    In any case, Legion ain't close and to be honest is it not even Wows best expansion, far from it. It was probably better then the last Wow expansion though. 

    I dunno what Blizz is doing anymore, 2 weeks after an expansion releases the majority of the players think it is the best ever. 6 months later some still think it's great but most seems to see it as neither good nor bad. 6 months before next expansion the majority seems to dislike it, been like this since MoP. Of course one might say it's been like that since Kaplan left as well and that might be close to the problem.

    MMO expansions need to pace the content better, they are supposed to last 2 years or so and then you can't have the players complete most of the fun content in a few short weeks, many player will just quit and stay away until next expansion that way. Compare it with TBC, that expansion lasted far longer and the majority of the players still liked it just before the release of Wotlk.

    I agree Nightfall was better content wise but I don't consider it an expansion since it was stand alone as opposed to EotN which did require the prior releases and was not stand alone.
    GW1 is a great great game. =)

    GW1 is still running and has a decent population last I checked, but it has been awhile.
