Theory: Blizzard noticed their more (delusions?) hyped expansions tends to get fewer subscriptions, so they want to maintain it (because they overhype) at a lower level.

I have high hopes for next expansion if the full team is trained by the end of WoD.

I can't wait for the new and improved 16 month content drought.

I have high hopes for the newer and more improved excuses for delays, broken promises, and cut content.

The way I see it, Blizzard is out of excuses after this.

If they fail to deliver on WoD and the following expansion, it might be too late for them, and that isn't something I want to see happen.

They will definitely have egg on their faces if they fuck up as royally with the next expansion as they have with WoD.

Should be interesting to watch, if nothing else.

A focus on the Loa could be cool since we could get into really old Azerothian lore from back before the Old Gods were put down. The Loa have been around since Azeroth first formed after all and they created the trolls if the vision from Shadows of the Horde is right.

One thing I've been wondering for a while now though is what is the thing with Zandalari and ravens. The prophet you fight while levelling has them in his attacks and there are ravens all over the Zandalari section of the timeless Isle which have a fair bit of health and fly off when you attack them.

Since WoD's problem was a huge influx from Titan that messed everything up, I don't expect things to be as awfully managed in the next expansion. There shouldn't be any more internal shake-ups like that.

It's one thing to have problems and voice your concerns, but when you endlessly bitch day in and day out about the same tired old shit, it honestly makes me wonder why you are even here. Generally when somebody doesn't like something, they stop caring about it.

And on that note, SoL is a forum I no longer enjoy. So, I'm done here. And I genuinely think the people who have absolutely nothing at all positive to say about the game and, the people whose posts are composed entirely of whining, really consider leaving (or at least sticking to non-WoW sections). Because if you truly get no enjoyment out of WoW, then why are you here?

With that said, goodbye.

I'm optimistic as well, but recently Blizzard always seems to find some reason for their poor delivery. I just really hope they can get back on their feet and start producing more content for us to enjoy without having to make excuses.

There's something really funny about this.

Sargeras corrupted the Eredar? Illidan is suddenly crazy and all-out villainy? Magtheridon was merely imprisoned? That's it, I'm quitting.

Muradin lives? Arthas purged Ner'zhul from the Lich King? The Scourge barely controls Northrend? That's it, I'm quitting.

Malfurion is the new king of the Night Elves? Most storylines in Vanilla are rewritten? Stormwind's Park district gets blown up? That's it, I'm quitting.

Pandas, pandas, pandas, pandas? That's it, I'm quitting.

That's not quite what I said.

Personally, I will continue to play WoW until the universe implodes. My previous statement was more along the lines of... Blizzard has very little time to show the WoW community that they can live up to the expectations they have set.

So basically, Blizzard just blatantly lied to us. That's nice.

Faction war can be done well, but Blizzard has half assed it and it has predictably flopped as a result.

Oh my god guys, just stop following game development, it's clearly some experience of all encompasing misery for you guys since you can't seem to let anything go. You'll be so much happier lol.

Yes, a game company not living up to its word and then lying blatantly about it, and we're at fault for not liking it. Welcome to the new gaming, people.

You're at fault for obsessively monitoring thing that might not end up going your way, in addition to not being able to get over things that don't go your
way.

Life goes on man, either enjoy the game as it's gonna be or stop playing it and stop worrying about it.

If companies say something, they gotta live up to it. And if they can't, they should be honest about it and try to work on making it happen later. Not throw out weak excuse after weak excuse and lie after lie, and then tell people that they should deal with change after people find out that they've been lying.



And good way to preserve the status quo. I'll remind you of that "enjoy the game as it's gonna be or stop worrying about it." mantra if I see you with character model qualms, class nerf qualms, or hell, any type of qualms that can realistically be changed for the better but hasn't been when 6.0.2 drops.

Do you know what I do when I have qualms about this game?

I, usually metaphorically sometimes literally, turn towards THE METRIC SHIT TON OF OTHER MEDIA THERE IS IN THE WORLD THAT IS CREATED TO POTENTIALLY ENTERTAIN ME.

Why the hell would I shitpost on a fan website? Sometimes things I like go a different direction than I want because I am not in charge of them. That's fine; it's frustrating, but it's fine. Because sometimes I go to the store and the thing I want is sold out. Sometimes I start flirting with a guy or a girl and they have a boyfriend or girlfriend. Sometimes I order clothes online and it isn't quite what I thought what it would be. Life goes on. I can't get hung up on shit like that, my life would be absolutely miserable if I did. There are so many fucking games on this stupid turning planet why would anyone spend so much time hating just one.

I'm okay with that. If he's okay with lying developers who create false expectations and then blame the player-base for those expectations they created, unwilling to owe up to their own mistakes and face the consequences for they themselves stoking the fires and hyping things up -- if he's wiling to let gaming studios do shit like that without any form of consequence, that's okay. But he shouldn't mock people for not being like him.



Some people actually care about being lied to by a company that they pay. I didn't pay my Blizzcon ticket to get hot air blown up the ass. I don't tweet devs on Twitter to hear untruths.

So basically, don't hold a company responsible for spreading falsehoods. Just deal with it and gobble that shit up or move on? Seems like a wise way to make sure all other media goes down the same path.


And nice going, demonizing a post simply because it doesn't praise Blizzard. You taking lessons from Quirnheim now?
