It is my own fault, I'll admit that. I saw an 8 hour downtime scheduled for yesterday and figured maybe we would be getting flying. I figured wrong.
It made me happy thinking flying was coming because it would allow me to do the things I waned to do but I didn't want to run around and do now because it would take so much more time to do so, like get all the pet battles on T2 done daily and finish off the pristine artifact digs. Stuff like that is something I was looking forward to doing when flying came. Stuff I wanted to do, but not stuff that was worth fighting my way through mobs every day to do.
There is a huge difference between fun and annoying and flying is the key. Doing that stuff and fighting your way back and forth to everything is annoying, flying around and hitting the pet battles and dig sites only is fun. At least for me and I was really looking forward to doing just that yesterday but I was let down.
I made a fun, and hopefully humorous, post yesterday to welcome flight and when I saw that there were no posts anywhere saying flight was added as the day went on I was saddened with the realization I was wrong, flying was not being added, we had a 8 hour downtime for nothing. I felt let down once again by blizzard because something that we should have had months ago, check that, at launch of the expansion, was still not added to the game.
I did not even log on last night, reset day or not, I did not care. For all I know they could have added flying and no one made any posts about it. I never logged on to even check for myself. But I find it unlikely that flight would be added and no one said anything, so I am glad I did not log in last night. If I did, I would have just felt let down.
From back in beta when we wrote post after post about there being no content at level 100 and blizzard still released the game with nothing to do, we were let down.
When we filed bug reports on beta that the garrisons kept crashing, with so many fewer people, but they assured us it would be fine when it went live, because apparently if it crashes with 100,000 people doing it than it will surely be fine when 10,000,000 try right? And we were let down.
For all the people that excitedly looked forward to bladespire and karabor after it was announced they would be our main cities, even if I happen to agree with their removal as we spend all our time in our garrisons anyway, and ended up seeing them removed. They were let down.
The scaling of raids were so dreadful, and people mentioned it over and over. 10 man normal felt closer to the hardest heroic boss than it did a normal fight when you compared it to the exact same fight with 30 people on normal. But what did they do, nothing, or tiny bits that are still not enough and to late after it was released. And we were let down.
The people who looked forward to ashran and had to wait for 2 or 4 or 6 or more hours in queue to get into one. They were let down.
They released a content patch that was almost completely content free with 6.1 and expected us to accept that there was a lot of new content added to the game, when in truth everything in 6.1 was either a fix, something that should be been included at launch or something that should have been held back so it could piggy back on a real content release. And we were let down.
There is the customer service, that I admit is stellar at times, that seems to be getting worse over all. Even more so when I put in a ticket about a problem and the response I received said "that sounds like a problem, you should out in a ticket" as the reply to my ticket. And I felt let down.
There are the voices that speak for the game telling us we are getting flight, then we are not, then we will see, then it will come in 6.1, then we will see, then we are not getting flight all, then we are getting it in 6.2.1, then 6.2.1 passes by and 6.2.2 is on PTR and it is still not here. Back and forth and back and forth they lead us with never really telling us anything. With these mixed messages and false or misleading statements made to the public most people have lost all trust in anything they tell us. And we were let down.
I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that this expansion has just been filled with one let down after another.
I am tired of being let down, I am tired of feeling as if blizzard does not care any more, I am tired of being lied to or mislead over and over.
I don't know why it is that I am still stupid enough to believe things will get better but I do, or I hope. I don't know about anyone else, but I can not wait to turn the page on this expansion and be done with it, because to me all this expansion will ever be remembered as is one giant let down. Legion can not come soon enough if you ask me. Lets hope that isn't an even bigger let down because I am really tired of being let down.
