Simply put...substandard product. I know Bliz/Activision always hypes its numbers, especially World of Warcraft subscriber numbers, but let me be the first in a growing number of people who will be turning in my subscription due to World of Warcraft and its inability to address simple gaming issues. The company has become too large and now provides substandard performance and execution. As a long time gamer...welcome to the fail. Be warned if you invest....bad things to come. If you dont have me and many like me to pay my subscription to maintain the earnings, the company will sink. In talking with gamer friends and circles I am not alone...be warned!
Thanks all, and take care.
From what I understand, they want to have current WoW players play both MMOs, so when they relese it won't be an issue whether WoW wanes in popularity or not, it will be whether the MMO meets Blizzard's level of standards and enjoyability to be part of the StarCraft genre. Remember StarCraft Ghost? It went through three iterations of development before the project finally got the axe. Blizzard won't release a title just to make money, they know people expect the best.
well do you have any facts at all to back up that the number of subscribers are inaccurate. I think WOW has a lot of room for growth, I will not be surprised if blizzard announce that Warcraft 4 is underdevelopment in 2009. with that another wow expansion?
Good luck finding an online game without issues... This is a weak argument... What other comparable game is there?... If people leave WOW they will probably go to the new Diablo or Starcraft. lol... Still $$$ in ATVI's pocket.
The fact is WOW subscriptions are at all time highs and growing... The WOLK expansion just because the fastest selling game of all time.
Wow is only one nice slice of ATVI/BLIZZ's pie. And it is doing extremely well and will continue to for sometime. When someone leaves, someone else joins, your upset at a situation that you didn't even explain so no substance there. Starcraft and Diablo will not only pick up any slack from WOW, but will increase the gaming base by a large amount. ATVI/BLIZZ has the gaming market on lockdown and the stock price will continue to climb reguardless. This company is a strong buy, period.
