I've played a few other MMO's and even more rpg board games.I've enjoyed them a lot but I'd honestly hate it if WoW took up to be more like them. This is mainly because Warcraft part makes WoW special to me. I've loved the lore and setting since Warcraft 2.There's a lot of places where you can make your own story. This game has you playing alongside your heroes and fighting for the cause as the story moves along. Adding a lot of interactivity is fun, but it dilutes that experience to me.Of course, MMO's are generally about choice but a lot of these changes will make the game fundamentally different because of those choices. Blizzard has made its own world and set it up, suggestions like these are aimed so that players make the world what it is. Warcraft really was never set up to be one of those type of games from the start, nor do I think it should be. It's letting you explore the world and even work along side the Heroes of it. The major plot revolves around them and that always take the forefront because the automated game design.Blizzard found this storytelling more appealing than using the RTS format. I agree that it is an evolution of its predecessor. However, when the players start making the game, it'll lose its origins, which I don't rightly think they're willing to give it up.No I don't really think this is that type of game or should be. It's just not the direction they want. I'm happy about that myself.
