In Topic: would 500k suffice? @holinka

who cares about sub numbers when they make more money than ever?

 

 

Just because they are converting their "good will" into liquid doesn't mean they are doing well.

 

Blizzard's ability to print money was almost directly tied to its reputation among the gaming community which is now being severely tarnished. They can't keep pissing off their players, or eventually something new will come along and people will forget why they ever cared about Blizzard games.

it's not about dropping the ball. If you study the market a bit, you might find out what they did to the game was to attract new players. It's all about making the most money out of it and not to satisfy the old "pvp community"- despite I would love if they did. But you gotta be realistic about changing the way this game will develop. If I needed to place a bet, I'd set my money on more and more retard-friendly approach. It's not just "Holinka".

 

Blizzard spent the last 5 years throwing away their subscribers in an attempt to get people who never wanted to play in the first place.

 

WoW was made for a specific audience.

WoW became wildly popular to that audience.

Blizzard stops catering to the audience that made the game wildy popular.

Blizzard attempts to appeal to an audience that has no interest in the game.

Game dies.

 

My friends and I are literally the perfect customer for a game like WoW. We would stay subbed every day of the year, buy all their stupid store mounts, buy transfers/faction changes/race changes. Yet none of us play the game? They messed up really bad.

 

The fact AJ is dead also says a lot. We have the worst battered wife syndrome ever. ("Season 21 will be different, I promise they will listen soon...")

Hey! Another typical aj post. "They don't care", "fire x", "wow is so bad right now". Let me school you kids for a minute: in all the expansions and every season people were always complaining. It was never good enough. Season credits were never given within the same season.

 

You must have some seriously low standards if you don't think they have dropped the ball the last few years.

It really says a lot about how bad the situation has gotten when I first saw about this on the WoW subreddit. That place is the biggest circlejerk ever, and 99% of negative opinions about WoW are buried instantly - yet whenever something negative about Holinka gets posted it is actually upvoted. 

 

My new goal in life is to get a job at Blizzard. Not for the money, or the prestige - but simply because, apparently, no matter how bad you are, you keep getting paid indefinitely.

 

It is really sad when I look back how things went over the last few years. We tried so hard to bridge the gap with Blizzard, but in the end they just don't care.
