It is silly that much development time from FryeJacob's blog

As much as BFA was awful, the HoA was not a bad system when they fixed it up and they could've easily done more with WOW Classic TBC Gold that moving into Shadowlands. Hippity hoppity the HoA currently absorbs anima congratz problem solved we don't have to scrap it for something different .

Why don't you just base it SW/ORG and enlarge it with every new xpac rather than moving from Garrisons to Order Halls to this fucking ship to Covenants. Have a garrison type instance in SW/ORG. Plan about it being used longer duration, new growth released and you can build the expansion special building that'll advance the narrative. Or the NPCs just show up to progress the narrative. Having it as instance in the large cities will fix the"everyone is in their garrison" issue.

It is silly that much development time has spent on growth specific material. Island expeditions. Warfronts. Like at what stage in development did they decide to give up on warfronts? Or when did they figure out that warfronts weren't likely to function as planned. It turned out to be a major feature of the bfa growth and imo was largely a dud of a feature. Same with islands. It's a huge waste of money to design a system that only lasts an expansion.

I agree that the HoA was a fantastic system. It's so hard for me though to get round the idea that blizz knows what they are doing when they implement a system. They put systems in half completed intentionally. Take a look at the legendaries at legion. Participants were stating, making posts on official forums, so the machine they had been implementing for legendaries was terrible and was just going to upset the participant base. Silence. It was set in as is and of course, people were upset. Some had 2, most had 1, some had none. Even those who had at least one didn't always get what they wanted/needed. It required the whole growth for them to put the system as it should have been from the start. They know but for the interest of MAUs they add in buffs and changes to systems to have people to remain or buy TBC Classic Gold come back.
