Okay okay okay, so I know I must be fucking insane for having really enjoyed Cataclysm. Part of it is probably because it was the first expansion that I really played (joined at the end of Wrath and didn’t even hit 80 on my first toon til a couple weeks into Cata) and most of it is probably from my
obvious love for Deathwing. Every time I hear people talking about how awful it was they simply mention that 4.3 was a bust because Deathwing was downed on like the same day of the patch, or the day after I don’t remember.
I really liked Cata though. I enjoyed the leveling, I enjoyed the dungeons, I enjoyed the PvP, and I really didn’t mind 4.3 at all because I liked the new dungeons and only did LFR so I wasn’t super disappointed with how quickly the raid was completed by actual raiders. My only beef with Cataclysm was that they took what was a potentially amazing villain and just kind of made a mockery out of him in the end. Deathwing in the books is what made me crazy about him, by the end of the story, he was kind of disappointing.
I was looking at this poll, and the only thing below Cataclysm is Vanilla (which surprises me because people always talk about how AMAZING Vanilla was right?). So why do people hate on Cataclysm so much?
