    You wake up as blizzard CEO

    It's a new quarter. You take a look at your bank accounts and see that you're $1.3 billion richer.

    Would you make WoW free to play?

    And stop paying my employees? Sounds like a bad business model.

    Of course not.

    No? Why would I do that if the product is still making a profit as a subscription model and is still wildly successful compared to most other MMOs on the market?

    Um I think you are a little confused about a CEO's bank account and a companies bank account?

    P.S No, never, would never happen, not in a million years.

    I'd fire everyone, see how well I'd fair doing every job simultaneously on my own, then sell the stock at the end of the day hoping their still profitable.

    Unlikely...their would need to be a large shift in the customer base before this would even be a possibility.

    No. Why do that when the game still has more subs than all the other F2P games combined? If I did that I wouldn't be CEO for long. Why do so many people insist that it would be smart for Blizzard to just start giving money away? Where are they learning economics from?

    Maybe the game would be better with more low DPS nice guys and fewer high DPS jerks? -- Ghostcrawler, Twitter, 6/29/13

    No, I wouldn't.

    They do not die; they do not live. They are outside the cycle. Your gods are not your gods, outsider.

    So naturally you're wondering if I would retire immediately? Yes. Yes, I would.

    Oh...that's not what you wanted to know? Ok. Would I make WoW free to play? No. That would be the dumbest thing I could do in regards to their business if I became CEO and I would be voted out of the company immediately.

    No - instead I'd quit, take my money and laugh myself to retirement.

    No, I don't see why Id want to kill the game to be honest.

    I'd actually make it go back to BC style, with current "graphics", the new models, the variety of dungeons and zones, but BC difficulty based so everyone get to raid according to the time/effort they put in. (Yes, yes, yes, it's my old story all over again ;p)


    But actually, wtf, I'd go bananas and buy stuff I can't have right now with all that money ;p

    F2P? Never, I would rather retire as a CEO even if I was there only for 1 day before I destroy a game by making it F2P.

    I think I'd be more concerned about how I got transplanted into a different dude.

    No.

    But I would buff Warrior dps substantially, nerf mages in PvP (completely take away Frost Nova and increase blink cooldown by 50%), also I would break the legs of every single Monk character. Stop fucking running away.
