Blizzards lack of caring for older content and WOD have turned me off from the game I have loved and lived for many years. It's been 2 weeks since I logged in and I just can't bring myself to do it. -2 more subs very soon I'm afraid
5.6 million is still the largest MMO playerbase, but that is now. At this rate, I expect they'll be at 4.9M in Q3 and 4.5M in Q4. I think we're seeing the lowest numbers since Wrath. I bet it will be 10M again after the next xpac, but quickly dip back down to 5 again.WoW has been going downhill for quite some time. I don't think the raids have been as good since BC, unless you count Ulduar. Each expansion they introduce more features that kill class customization, community, and turn the game into a long grind. The only major idea that's been any good the past 3 expansions is pet battles. Honestly, the game is too far gone and we need WoW 2, not 7.0.
No wonder, with what we have seen in the last few expansions. Sine the Lich King came out I feel WoW has totaly stagnated, the contents has been made simpler and simpler, easier and easier. Well, it's all down to what kind of players you want to attract, those who play for a while and then move on to something even easier, like a "free to play" anime thing, or those who enjoy something wih substance. A WoW where there's only raids to do after you've finished exploring and doing the quests, not exactly my dream world, and maybe that's where they loose the most, the players that aren't good enough to do mythic raids, like myself, or those who are so oodthey get tired of it? Wow's dead, it's just too stupid to understand it. Maybe time for Blizzard to stop beating an old horse and get a new one?
"While these numbers are quite low by recent standards, numbers should be bouncing back up with the expansion announcement at gamescom."After seeing the lack of enthusiasm in the gamescon audience and the "been here, did that, meh feeling" I felt at the end of the feed, I finally think this is Blizzard's "jump the shark" moment. I've been a player since Alpha and love the storyline, but with WoD's time travelling and the AU, it's just lost its flair. I haven't even skimmed the surface of Patch 6.2.
Just fine with warcraft taking a back seat to other games. Old content is fun to roam around amidst. Some folks don't have 10, 20, 30+ hours a week to play. 2-5 hours per week still garners great fun with the game and there is plenty at that pace for years....
This is why I am currently playing other games right now. WoW has just lost me as a subscriber. There are just too many things I dislike now about the game and its just boring as hell.
WoD was actually not bad at the beginning, but when the Selfie cam came...6.1 NO CONTENT FFSSOMETHING SHOULD BE HERE BUT NO :-----[6.2 Its good and nice, but it should have come later and it should be called called 6.4 .Please blizzard re-make the sub system OR delete it! Deliver all content you promised us in Legion and do somthing withthe graphics.
I'm so sick of blizzard's PR-themed statements , like 6.2 being "one of the largest non expansion updates"...Seriously blizzard? The only patches that come to mind that aren't "larger" than 6.2 are 4.1 and 6.1 (btw am I noticing a pattern here? :P ) .Anyway back to my point. As long as blizzard doesn't attempt to solve fundamental problems with wow like lack of class PVP balance and continues to relinquish the MMO part of the game, the subs will keep going down.
After all these years, today i've ended my subscription. I know Blizzard Entertainment does not cares about my drop in the ocean. But it ends like everything. Untill this day, i've played this game and i've loved it. I've never and ever written "Doom is Coming" to any site.Today, i just give up, deleted the game from my pc. Because of after whole long years, i've got a banned account. The reason is a virus in my pc, they told me i've used a 3rd party program. I've submitted the virus scanning results but .... they really didint given any kind of "care" about what i am saying. And i understood what was going on, they only care about the cash. Not me, not the customer, Only $. For a game, it is more than it has to be. And i've understood that they are a money monsters which we are created. That is all, they are no more than this. Now, life is at outside, i'm going to taste the Autumn with my extra roasted coffee without a concern of "oh i've a raid tonite, i need to be at home at 8pm.". Goodbye everyone, it was nice to play with you all.
