World of Warcraft Cataclysm Postmortem

The World of Warcraft Website now offers a postmortem written by Greg 'Ghostcrawler' Street, who discusses the outcome of the Cataclysm expansion for Blizzard's MMORPG. He says they are pleased with how the 1-60 revamp turned out, but frankly answers "everything else" when asked what didn't work out as planned, adding: "Seriously though, we tend to be our own harshest critics, so it’s actually easy for us to point out things that didn’t work out as expected." He takes a constructive turn at the conclusion, outlining the lessons they will apply from this experience to the upcoming release of the Mists of Pandaria add-on.

From a hardcore raiders perspective the game is just stagnant. I played the game since 1.0 (and beta), and Cataclysm was just a huge dump of unoriginal and boring raid content. Firelands and Dragon Soul were too short, too little, too late. The best tier in Cataclysm was the first tier of heroic raids, and it still doesn't hold a candle to the likes of Sunwell, Black Temple, Serpentshrine Cavern, Ulduar, and Blackwing Lair in terms of environment and encounter design. It's pretty obvious that WoW is on the back burner. My guild killed heroic Deathwing a few weeks ago, and I was done there. Canceled my account and have no intention of going back, and I know several others from my guild have done, or are doing, the same.
