This week, you’ll learn about Ryan’s history with the game, which doesn’t span from vanilla WoW, but is still long enough to let him say things like “back in my day.” A lot of the discussion centers around what Ryan wrote recently in his review, “Battle for Azeroth continues World of Warcraft’s legacy as an excellent, but safe MMO,” where he wrote:
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth has been given the unfortunate task of following up Legion, one of the best received World of Warcraft expansions in the last decade. Where Legion saw players go to space and fight hordes of demons, Battle for Azeroth brings the conflict back to Warcraft’s core: the Horde versus the Alliance in all-out war.
Thankfully for World of Warcraft players, Battle for Azeroth does almost everything right, and even succeeds in places where Legion failed. But in other cases, the expansion is left feeling a bit safe compared to its predecessor.
