The Daily Grind: How would you judge WoW Legion’s launch?


MMORPG launches seldom go to plan. Trainwrecks are inevitable. Never spend a vacation day on an MMO release date — that’s the conventional wisdom.

And yet World of Warcraft: Legion has rolled out pretty darn well, or so it appears to me, with only the blip of a DDOS to mar the experience.

Then again, cynical players have observed that Legion is probably several million players short of the overloaded Draenor launch experience.

How would you judge WoW Legion’s launch? How does it stack up compared to other WoW expansion launches — and other good launches throughout the genre’s history?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
