The Weekly Raid: One Week In, What Are Your Thoughts On Battle For Azeroth?

World of Warcraft's 7th expansion launched last week and it seems the MMORPG king has secured its throne one again. Battle For Azeroth has seen strong sales, including pre-orders ahead of projections. As of this writing, World of Warcraft is the #3 most watched game on, trailing behind Dota 2 (in the midst of its annual global championship), and Fortnite.

We here at are divided on the game. While I have played it almost non-stop since release, quickly hitting 120 and eagerly gearing up for the upcoming raid next month, Omer hasn't been quite as drawn in. The pull of Final Fantasy 14 proved too strong, with WoW unable to pry him away from Square Enix's MMORPG.

This week, we'd like to discuss what Blizzard has done right with Battle For Azeroth, what its done wrong, and most importantly, how the now 14 year old MMORPG compares with newer rivals. This includes FF14, but also games like The Elder Scrolls Online, Guild Wars 2, and others.

If you've been playing Battle for Azeroth, join the discussion!
