I hope developers see this, and feel bad about themselves
Take a look at what just happened. We learned there is no new content in WOW coming to live for many months but a WoD expansion type mount has hit the cash shop. Then recently we also learned of blizzard opening jobs for micro-transaction designers and thinkers. That store is about to expand massively.
What cash flow can blizzard tap into and do the least work will be the status quo for the coming many months (if not years).
Like I said earlier, the way I see blizzard is it was a company that used to make great games for gamers which brought in big money.
Now they make mediocre games for big money only.
I sadly see WOW expanding that philosophy but at a much slower pace than say, D3 so gamers will not see it coming till its much to late. It's very much the boiling frog anecdote.
I love you.That's probably because you were one of the many terrible players that didn't know their class, and therefore was excluded from guilds and dungeon runs. Of course nowadays you can be terrible and have all the gear in the world so I'm sure you're having a blast.
Yup. Time is money. Blizzard knows this and exploits the fact - rightfully so, it's what their players generally want. And what the players want is not an MMORPG, it's a cash shop with pseudo-raiding.I sadly see WOW expanding that philosophy but at a much slower pace than say, D3 so gamers will not see it coming till its much to late.

Just wait to see how much they make off of Hearthstone.. £1.49 for one arena run? Lol nty.
Players these days just want the world to be their whored-out oyster.BRING BACK THE MMORPG
