I feel I should be recusing myself, since I do not have the strong feelings for TBC expansion, however I enjoyed it very much. I always cringe just a bit when folks call it their favorite expansion, I think because I found the mechanics and design still in a polishing phase where players could game mechanics to OP levels, and certain other classes just had to watch and accept it. But to my point, I also believe it gave the player base a certain expectation that WoW would begin satisfying Sci-Fi interests. I love the Draenei, Outland, and especially sci-fi themes and environments. But I have to fully support when Blizzard lets those aspects wiggle lazily in the wind while they bead in on more fantasy-oriented themes. That is what the Warcraft universe is. I like me some steampunk, and you get glimmers of that to, but even just in small doses. If they want to make another expansion that takes place wholly on Azeroth again, which is the planet that without TBC would be the only playable environ since Warcraft, then I got their backs.If the World of Warcraft story is brought to its eventual fate over the course of 18 more expansions, then I do have to believe we're going into Space/The Twisting Nether. I don't reject it, and will definitely love it, especially with everything Blizzard is learning about game design and where the art is going. I liked TBC, but I don't look at off-world adventures as a necessity. I suppose I just hold onto the planet Azeroth as being the accepted focal point of the game. ...Lost my train of thought.
