I am a kind of casual player who has a limited playing time and I play during a bit odd hours so joining a guild for doing more organized (scheduled) content is out of question…I do not complain about this, my playing time is my own problem, but for solo players like me, I feel in Legion I had much more things to do than now in BfA.
The quest chains were longer, there was other current content for solo players to complete, it wasn’t so fastly consumed so to say. Right now, if one doesn’t pug M+, what he’s left to do? Farm eggs for the new hs toy. It feels the game started to offer too much in terms of “collectibles” and much less in terms of more engaging content. Even in MOP, I spent an awful lot of time on the Timeless isle and had great fun, with groups, farming frogs, etc.
I don’t think the game is kinda dying. But it’s fluctuating between offering “nothing new” during one expansion, and then offering new enaging and interesting content during the next one, then again, nothing…When the game continues to not offer enough new and engaging content, and keeps bringing only collectibles besides the already boring concepts of dungeon-raid-arena-bg, then it will be truly dead.
I have hopes about 8.2 with the new zone, I think this is the kind of content we need to “fresh” things up.
