Player tabulation compares the time span of each version of World of Warcraft

“World of Warcraft” player Tyrsenus made a chart to compare the time span of the current versions of Warcraft, including pre-installed patches, phased overhauls, and the total length of expansions.

Shadowland is in an average position in the total length of the expansion. In addition to the pre-installed patches, there are only two major patches, 9.1 and 9.2, and the length of 9.0 reaches 218 days, which is the longest in the history of the first release. In contrast, Warlords of Draenor also has only two major supplements, but only 103 days of starting 6.0.

Battle for Azeroth is the longest-running expansion, largely due to the delay in development of 9.0 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, delays due to approvals in other regions are not counted here.

Mists of Pandaria’s 5.4 and Warlords of Draenor’s 6.2 were the longest-lasting single patches at 399 and 392 days, respectively.

Tyrsenus’ data sparked heated discussions among netizens, with more than 450 forum comments. The most complained is the version of Lords of Draenor. This expansion has the shortest total length, and the update content of the two major supplements is very limited. Everyone is debating whether Warlords of Draenor, Battle for Azeroth, or Shadowlands is the worst expansion.

In any case, it is indisputable that the Shadow Kingdom has brought “World of Warcraft” to the bottom of history. Many people are pinning their hopes on the age of the dragon. 10.0 brings many gameplay innovations. The second phase will be opened on November 15th. expect.
