    I think the only people who cares for a wow killer is who still play wow, most don't even care about it
    FOR HONOR, FOR FREEDOM.... and for some money.

    You can't remember an expansion where people complained about class changes....? You weren't around in Legion or something? Demo had to sit through the entire expansion being utterly garbage and Destruction didn't get 'fixed' until half way through. Arcane and Frost mage were pretty much garbage dps wise unless you hit a perfect storm of a situation. Warriors were....warriors. Shadow priest is still garbage and will remain garbage in bfa according to Ion. Dunno where you've been my friend. It might 'seem' more controversial cause they 'gave' a lot to classes in legion but honestly people are so stupid that they didn't even realize that Blizzard took a lot of crap away at the start of legion only to give half of it back (half of the stuff in your artifact 'tree' was from glyphs and old talent choices). They're pretty much gonna do the same thing with azerite armor, so people are gonna QQ until they see it and Q less later on. Its obvious WoW is running out of ideas but people seem to be happy as long as they are spoonfed SOMETHING.
    Demonology got a revamp in Wrath of the Lich King.  Affliction got a ton of changes that expansion, as well.  Havoc was added to Destruction in the the ICC patch, IIRC, and that's ignoring the sweeping changes they made to that spec from BC (Sunwell-era) to Wrath.  I'm sure other classes saw fairly robust changes then, as well.  Class Revamps or major changes to class mechanics are not a new thing.  People complained about them back then, too...  90% of Warlocks were Destruction up until ICC.

    Every expansion, burnt out players with no other viable options (because 98.6% of MMORPGs on the market are vaporware, IMHO) complain that the expansion is killing WoW.

    WoW is like 14 years old.  It's dying of old age.  There is no magic there, just a bunch of people wishing for a miracle whenever they release an expansion or content patch.

    Hell I remember ranting on this site about the end being near with the WOTLK changes so I quit before Cata I woke up my old account to farm some mounts and stuff during Legion and I was taken back how AWFUL things had gotten, so that lasted a month, I can't imagine it possibly being worse than that. Dear God in Christ what did they do to Shadow Priests...... oh man I don't have the blood pressure for this anymore.

    You can say what you want its very popular on twitch, ingame its croud. Most of them just game and dont bother talkin about the game. 

    Wish I would still enjoy it :(

    On account of seven servers being used and the rest being tossed aside as ...well just servers that have two people on em.

    Also know what else is popular on twitch? RL Workout videos so honestly you using twitch aas a prime (ah ha!) example is basically just saying "hey everyone I don't know what I'm talking about over here looky me".

    Activision was a slow poison at first, and I thought Blizzard was big enough and made enough money to hold them at bay, but it turns out Activision decided to stop auto attacking and spam Mutilate while popping a Thistle Tea this last year.

    I've never seen Blizzard, be less Blizzard-like than it was in 2018. They've had their ups and downs, but it was just fail fail fail all year. They're a husk of an amazing company at this point and Activision gutted them.

    World of Warcraft is a virus, not a bacteria. It's not going anywhere you gotta live with it. Go take your meds and keep the outbreaks to a minimum.  :D

    Blizzard is putting everything into reviving Classic. They may come out with BC, and Wotlk, but that is where it will diverge. Past that they will make new content for Classic. Otherwise Blizz wouldn't be putting all this effort into building it with the modern WoW engine. It is going to be a long term MMO.

    Classic is going to be the WoW killer.

    While I agree, I also think it's more of a revitalization not just for WoW but the entire genre.

    Can't wait to see what happens. My obvious bias for classic WoW aside, I hope we see some numbers from Blizzard on how well classic does.

    Expect to see some shady trophy numbers within a couple weeks of official release, imo.

    Vault-Tec analysts have concluded that the odds of worldwide nuclear armaggeddon this decade are 17,143,762... to 1.

    they also allready said that some specs will not work as intended untill patch 8.1, for a Blizzard game that is plasphemy..

    That's really bad but typical for Blizzard and WOW expansions.  They announce dates and stick to em regardless of quality.
    Remember back in beta and the first three expansions... Blizzard's motto was "It will be ready when it's ready!"  and the trade marked "Soon!®" we always joked about.  They definately lost touch with what made them great.

    Since WoW Classic is the WoW killer, shouldn't we just call it the WoW Rejuvenator?

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    Anyone that played Everquest for any length of time knew that in time WoW would have its issues...The reason why? Expansions......Just like in EQ, certain expansions will be gamebreakers for some of the people.

    Well, I would say certain shifts in gameplay focus to cater to certain audiences or appeal to new audiences while alienating or angering other audiences that usually happen with expansions.  

    The other thing, and I think this is a big one people miss all the time, is that I have a hard time getting into older games that I used to like but have too many expansions because of tons of reasons.  I'm assuming this is true for many others too.

    LotRO and EQ2 are two games I like but never play because of expansions.  When LoTRO did their progression server I got back into it, but knowing the progression was going to go so fast just killed it for me.  If they had two years between expansions I would have been able to get into it.  Four months had some sort of mental effect on me that just excluded me from being able to get into it.

    Agreed, I can't even Dl the game. I can't even remember the last expansion I tried to play.

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.
