Poll says it all :)

I'd have to vote TBC or WOTLK. I don't think it has much to do with how the balance was at that time even though that's what many players will say. Many players preferred TBC even though it was far from balanced or WOTLK even though it only had arguable 1-2 balanced seasons. I think it has more to do where you were in WoW at that time. Many players will prefer the season they first achieved glad in because at that time WoW was big for them since getting the rating for the first time was exciting. And that time was for many many players TBC or WOTLK. Back then in WOTLK there were way more tourneys and arena participation just felt high, even though DKs were extremely frustrating to meet.
This also explains why many TBC lovers dislike going on TBC servers now, because it wasn't about  balance or gameplay, it was fun because of the community and experience.

I chose TBC for the reason you said, there was less scumbagginess (minus point selling) and the game was more competitive.

Wow will just never have a balanced and competitive season. Two seperate game modes to balance, 11 Classes, 33 Specs it just wont happen, something is allways going to be stronger or weaker then the rest.

Fun wise:

TBC - dogshit boring drain matches agrthrstvzsgtsbsg
Wotlk - uber fun
Cata - very fun
Mop - could be a lot of fun but blizzards attitude towards pvp is just ruining it so not holding any hopes

Popped a molly, I'm sweating.

I think they're all pretty  fun, just appreciate them for different reasons and take them for what they are. It's hard to comparatively  designate one as "better" than the others

I must have been playing another game I guess. I would never think wotlk was better than tbc, in fact not even close. I think wotlk had the most painful arena seasons by far lol.

I think SWP/Ulduar was the best for PvE.

Balance isn't about class equality.  Balance is about game quality.

S5 DK is not quality.  
S5 Arms broken is not quality.
S6 undisarmable bladestorm is not quality.
S7 Beastcleave no nerfs all season is not quality.
S8 caster haste caps is not quality (poor foresight from developers)
S9 KFC is not quality.
S9 4.0.6? disc buffed to the ceiling, warriors nerfed to floor, rogue/dk/healer buffed into eternity is not quality.
S9 mage mastery is not quality.

PVE gear is hated by a lot of players, and SOME inequality can be attributed to it but most generally, the game is shit at times the developers fail most.

S12 cooldown stacking is not quality.
Bloodfear, psyfiend, totemic restoration and many other retarded fucking things should have never made it into this game, beta and PTR allow you to arena for a reason.  Developers continue to ignore feedback, make the changes that they initially ignored and then over-nerf and over buff classes every single patch for the entirety of the game's existence.  The only thing they have done right is learn how to segway patches and expansions into the game without shutting down the game for a week of hotfix and repairs.

in tbc and wotlk, server communities were still a thing and that made them the most fun expansions for me

And TBC, burn spams from multiple classes, fears taking a billion dmg, resto druid set bonus, Hemo ARPrep, mace stuns, resilence broken for dots, legendaries, craftable god mace and 20 other things are just as bad as a lot of the shit in the game today.

actually, its too early to make a statement about mop. the first season of an xpac was never good, and some changes from blizzard are not that bad (no upgrading-system for season13, average fast hotfixes on broken mechanics). imo blizz is doing some things right, some things wrong. they should work together more with the community for balancing opinions, if they do, mop should be a really funny xpac. im excited for season 13, maybe it will be a good season

you probably should have excluded mop from this poll since it's only 1 season in

wotlk ofc, where you actually enjoyed playing 2v2 and didnt crash your rating just to get fast cap at   the start of the week. Ofc classes werent equal but it was for me the most equal of any expansion
