Battle for Azeroth has a lot to live up to thanks to its stellar predecessor in Legion, and for the most part it delivers.
Even if its new loot system is a bust, Battle for Azeroth is a vibrant expansion full of wondrous new locales to explore, characters to meet, and stories to tell.
It may not break new ground in comparison to the preceding expansion, but Battle for Azeroth provides a wealth of activities for players to enjoy and experience
The greatest testament to Blizzard's design in this expansion is that it's worth wading through Battle for Azeroth's seemingly endless and frustrating grind, all in the hopes of helping your group of four friends push their keystone up one more level than you thought was possible — at least, for now.
Faction politics are the backbone of Battle for Azeroth, but the real victories are the friends that you make along the way.
Or will Blizzard just give us more of the same, because I am completely fine with that at this point. Stories so interesting I've defected to the Horde to make sure I get to enjoy them all? I guess I can live with that.
Battle for Azeroth launches strong by renewing the conflict between the Horde and Alliance. Blizzard offers two very different experiences this expansion with each faction having their own storyline on unique island nations. It's an enjoyable expansion during the leveling experience, but endgame currently has some issues with sparse weapon drops and clutter stemming from the new Azerite gear system. There are improvements to be made here, but what's available at launch is still very good.
Battle for Azeroth isn't my favorite expansion but it's definitely up there.
Battle for Azeroth is more of the same, and that's what many World of Warcraft fans were looking for. Doesn't invent anything new and there is much that he borrows from something that appeared previously on the game, but worth returning to Azeroth to discover the history, insular expeditions and the Warfronts.

If you've completed the story there's still a lot to do in this world, of Warcaft. New dungeons with fun themes and locations are enjoyable to grind through and PVP is always a fun whether you're casual or hardcore. The world, of Warcraft is bursting at the seams with stuff to do. Don't Like PvE? Try Pet Battles. Don't Like Pet Battles? Try PvP. I'm a pretty casual player and the thing I enjoy doing the most is going back to old content and playing through it solo, for the first time.
Battle for Azeroth is a good expansion for World of Warcraft, with not so many improvements in gameplay, but a lot of new contents to experience and enjoy.

If Blizzard manages to keep up the momentum it has built here, the future's looking strong for the ruling monarch of the MMORPG. I'm not entirely sure who's looking at World of Warcraft after fourteen years and only now deciding to jump in. But if you are, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better time than right now.
We won't know the full quality of the expansion for a couple of years, but Battle for Azeroth is off to a strong start.
While World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth hasn't been my favorite expansion in the franchise, it brought with it some great new dungeons, fantastic new raid encounters, an excellent new story, and gorgeous scenery. I have hope that what is lacking, or "not working as intended" will be adjusted over time. My love for the game, and the thriving community I have built within it are what keep me logging in week after week.
World of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth sets out to win back old players and draw in new ones with an increased level cap, new zones, and a restructuring of PvP.
There are few games I love as much as World of Warcraft, which is why I'm delivering some tough love to Blizzard, which has a lot of work to do to set Battle for Azeroth on the right path.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is a good expansion with an interesting story on both sides, quests, new mechanics and game modes that relies too much on the achievements of past add-ons.

In World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth the pending apocalypse may not be canceled, but it's temporarily tabled
Battle for Azeroth is a solid follow-up to Legion that'll keep fans happy - if only for the new continents, War mode, and dungeons. Time will tell if the rest of the features will give the expansion the shelf life it needs.
After 14 years, Blizzard still knows what's at the heart of WoW, while proving it's not afraid to try new things. While not every new feature is a home run, the expansion's tighter focus on "the war at home" reminds players about what made Warcraft so popular in the first place.
