Watch an advertisement for every expansion (BC --> Mists of Pandaria). Every single one claims it's the "best expansion yet" hahaha! I found this kind of funny.

To be fair; it may well be the truth this time.

The same reason everyone who ever comes out with an addition/sequel brands it as "The best yet!"

To get people to play

Because people aren't smart and this is what advertisement knows sells things. It is pretty funny though.

Not to derail topic but I always found it funny if someone bought the PSP Go because it was essentially the same as the 3000, more expensive, and removed the ability to buy from anyone except Sony. It had a few small enhancements like size and weight but other than that nothing...

People still bought it because it was the new thing... Drove me nuts...

Well from a non fanboy PoV, they're right. Each expansion adds more and more features to this game. Technically making it the best.

Because, the devs like to think they're getting better at this the more they do it.

Every expansion has been an improvement on the former. I think the problem is that people are tired of the grind of mmos.

They're quoting reviews for each of the expansions, not just claiming it.
