    Millions of new players incoming? - are you prepared?

    The 'free WoW including WOD' and free 1 month subscription promo seems now near universally included with the price of the film ticket. Are you prepared to 'welcome' the masses of casual tryouts on your server? Alternatively, as an existing subscriber, what are your plans for this free second account?

    Nothing, since they removed the boost from WoD.

    Let's try to be as toxic as we can with these "n00bs" so that they leave our game and it keeps dying! Yeah!

    Since I'm watching the movie with 2 friends that don't plan to play wow, I will have 3 accounts. Not sure what to do with them. Guess I'll just keep the keys, maybe I convince someone to come to the dark side and give his soul to wow.

    Seeing I am not playing WoW at the moment, no idea.

    I honestly doubt there will be that many people who view the movie that aren't already warcraft fans. I doubt it will bring in too many new players.

    A limited number of theaters in US =/= "universally included"
    Patch 8.0.x.
    -Normal quests reward legendary gear. In addition you can chose the desired stats and item level.
    -Players can now create their own custom titles.
    -Solo Raiding! Players will be able to RAID by themselves no longer being forced to group up with other people in a MMO.

    What's wrong with masses of casual tryouts? I'm ready. I don't think I would use free "2nd account", I already have 3.

    Exactly what this guy said, and most people out there have already tried it once in their life,

    Most of the beginners tend to be nice and innocent as in they don't have any experience. No idea if this will really bring in a lot of players but if it does it will be good to see some of the zones filled again.

    I feel like this will bring more people in to the game than others think. Think about it. After the movie comes out and new generations watch it as well as bring nostalgia back to old players, the opportunity for this to explode the subscriber numbers is immense. This was a smart move for Blizzard, regardless what people think about the company. Millions of people have already played WoW and will most likely see this movie. Expect millions of subscribers to come back, even if it means a short while like WoD. That's all they need really.

    Yea, I don't have a problem with a "I am new and I don't know what I'm doing, but if fun so I'm learning", but I do have a problem with "I am a super pro player but I have no idea what to do with this class, I just want to get it over with so it will generate me garrison gold"

    Suspect it'll be more a case of: Thousands of new players passing through ...
    I do not suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

    I doubt there will be "millions" more people. Few thousands? Sure. Millions? Highly doubt it.

    There are always new generations growing up to adolescency and then adulthood who might fall in love with this game or its lore like we all did once back in time. I started to play WoW when I was 24, now I'm 35.
