We all know that World of Warcraft gets its fair share of criticism and grumpy rants, particularly in this Battle for Azeroth era. And while many of those points are acute and well-deserved, today I want to take a recent podcast question and pose it to you: What does World of Warcraft actually do pretty darn well?
I could fill up a pretty lengthy column on the subject myself, but in summation, I would say its accessibility, slick user interface features, music and art direction, and tight combat system are among the highlights for me. Azeroth (and surrounding principalities) has always been a gorgeous and interesting place to explore, and I finally feel some interest stirring inside for Shadowlands after delving into some of the screenshots and videos.
What do you think? We’ve all talked about where WoW stumbles, but what is it doing right and well these days?
