I try to be optimistic. Even when I don’t like what’s happening in WoW, I try to trust Blizzard that they know what they’re doing. That they have a plan and this will all make sense eventually and we’ll appreciate all that’s happened even if we didn’t like it at the time.
We’re in pre-patch, we’re only seeing a beginning of a much larger story. I know this and I’ve been telling myself this nonstop since I saw Teldrassil burn on my Alliance character and had to participate in that on my Hordie.
But I’m still upset. It sucked. And my home in Azeroth is Stormwind so I don’t even have that very deep connection to Darnassus and Teldrassil which a lot of players have. There’s so much sadness and anger and so many people are feeling bad about the game.
I understand breaking a few eggs to make an omelette/great story. Blizz is definitely not the only one to do that, I recently rewatched Avengers: Infinity War and they smashed many eggs along with my heart to pieces and left us hanging for a year until the next part comes out. I understand this. But I don’t know if it’s worth it. And I won’t know until I see the whole expansion.
I originally didn’t want to make a post about Burning of Teldrassil because I don’t have anything nice to say but I want to do this. I want to publish a post about my feelings to remember the bad times we’re having now. And I will come back to it eventually to say if it was worth it or not.
I try to be optimistic and trust Blizzard. Always. But they made it damn hard with this pre-patch.
So I really hope it will be worth it.
