Siege of Orgrimmar.. the greatest raid ever ?

General Discussion
Is Siege Karazhan? Then it's not the greatest raid ever. :P
Karazhan and Naxx are my favorite raids in wow so far.
Lorewise? It's got some problems. Gameplay? Well..it looks pretty darn good.
People need to stop living in the past and appreciate current content more. Throne of Thunder was pretty amazing, even for a linear progression path. I expect SoO to be even more satisfying.

Who says? In this quote, you are reacting to things that were said in the past. The past makes up 99.9% of our experiences. Who we are as individuals is rooted in the past. Understanding the past can help us succeed in the present and indeed in the future. Why is the past so bad?

Heart of Fear had some interesting boss fights. But you know what? I hated it. The overall ambience was just too provocative for my taste. That's my opinion. I can have that if I'd like.

ToT was mostly very cool. It was no Karazhan though. I enjoyed the harpsichord music, the opera event, the vertically expansive library, with many, varied bosses. The chess event is the only time vehicle combat didn't leave me moaning that it had nothing to do with my ability to play my character. I pray the day never comes that they demolish it in favor of a level appropriate version but hope the day will come where it has a caverns of time version that shows the place in its alive state and maybe unravel the story of how Malch took it over or whatever. That would be sweet.
People thought Throne of Thunder was going to be the best one. But much like everything with this community I saw more negative responses than positive. Then again it was mostly LFR hate so go figure.

I hope it's better just story wise. I can't describe how disconnected I felt from the threat of the Thunder King even after really enjoying the quest line on the isle.

Well, considering that the majority of the expansion has been focusing on the increasingly crazed son of Grom, and that both sides have suffered under his aggression, I think it might be. Or not.
from what I see it looks really the best raid ever maybe only Naxx or gates of AhnQiraj events were in bar at there times.

what do you guys think?

Considering most people haven't seen it yet, it is a little hard to compare. Hate to say it, but I seriously doubt it will even come close to Naxx 40, AQ40, Sunwell, SSC, BT, BWL or Ulduar.
Karazhan's still my personal favorite though.


This.
Ulduar or bust

I'm not sure I'll ever understand the obsession with Ulduar. The only thing I really liked a lot about that one was the gear sets. Some of the fights were fun, but I would never call it my favorite raid.

ICC had a lot more that appealed to me, considering how much I love the Scourge/Forsaken storyline in both WoW and WC3. I was also in a better raid group at that time, so that may also add to some bias.

On topic though, I'm super thrilled about Siege of Orgrimmar. I think this will probably trump ICC as my favorite raid. :)
I doubt it.
ICC and Naxx will most likely remain as my favorite raids.
Sunwell Plateau will always be my personal favorite

As to SoO well that remains to be seen,, the tidbits they are showing look nice.. but they can be decieving..

Ever go to a movie based on the trailer? And been sorely disappointed .. this is kind of the same thing.. So like others I will reserve judgement til it is done.
ToT was the best raid to ever grace this game, IMO.

Here's hoping SoO is even better!
Naxx and ICC were my faves.

But that's because I love the lore of them. And I'm a Paladin.

Didn't raid in TBC so didn't do Kara. I see a lot of people saying Kara in this thread. I remember reading posts back then about how people were sick of it lol Funny how that works.
It's got its work cut out for it to even be the best raid of the expansion (ToT is amazing), let alone the best raid ever.

I'm a little concerned that there seem to be a hefty number of add based fights that are giving me deathwing flashbacks.

it'll be better...for the Horde that is. we'll probably get something...though not as epic and cool as Horde though.
We get to help Thrall save the world again.

That's pretty much it.
I reserve the right to retain my opinion until I have more data to work with. In other words lets wait for the raid to come out before we start asking if it is the "bestest thing since sliced bread"
