I actually think content development and game design are far better than they were in the Kaplan era. It seems as though every patch another door opens to make content accessible for a larger percentage of the population, and that's great. Not to mention, development hours seem to be more evenly spread across the various play styles and interests people have with the game.Where things have really fallen apart? Stability. I don't understand how Blizzard has allowed things to get as bad as they have, and that they are reluctant to express the exact reasons behind the problems and why they haven't been able to resolve them yet. You couldn't convince me that WoW has taken a backseat at Blizzard based on content or design...but it would be hard to argue that they are devoting the appropriate resources to server health. It's embarrassing, and it will remain a huge stain on Blizzard's record, even if they ever do change course and turn things around.I simply cannot comprehend why the servers have been so much worse this expansion cycle than Burning Crusade. In ways it sometimes seems even worse than launch, especially because the drive to change has apparently stagnated.
