I have what I would call a love/hate relationship with the Character Boosts that we've been seeing in World of Warcraft over the past few expansions.
What would you think if World of Warcraft adopted a Battle Pass system? What would you want out of it?
World of Warcraft still functions on the "expansions supported by patches" model, where we'll receive 2-3 major patches (and some accompanying minor ones in between) throughout the course of an expansion, then pay for a new expansion up front and repeat the cycle all over again.
I mean, with World of Warcraft: Dragonflight and the Dragon Isles, we're more or less going to the absolutely last place on Azeroth we've ever heard of.
The rumors ended up being true: the next World of Warcraft expansion is Dragonflight.
This month -- the 19th, to be exact -- we're expecting a World of Warcraft expansion announcement.
We haven't had a new class in World of Warcraft since Legion introduced the Demon Hunter.
I mean, we had N'Zoth in Battle for Azeroth, the Burning Legion and Sargeras in Legion, Gul'dan and the Legion in Warlords of Draenor... at this point, it feels to me like maybe we need a departure of some kind from the experiences we have been having in our WoW expansions.
If the introduction of Seasons of Mastery to WoW Classic teaches me anything, it's that you can absolutely introduce concepts from newer games into older ones, since the Seasons concept is basically life from Diablo 3 Seasons.
At some point in the future, we'll leave the Shadowlands behind, and (probably) return to Azeroth.
Every expansion attempts to learn from the previous expansions.
