    I thought they were working on the pet battle app. It mysteriously disappeared. In good Blizzard fashion, i'm afraid they decided to "expand" it into a full game.

    Did people get this pissy about Hearthstone? I honestly don't remember. This is the same thing, a mobile game with Warcraft branding, there's nothing to be mad about. A shit ton of franchises do this.

    I love this idea. Make it the most egregious pay to win game ever so people don't stop complaining about it but yet are addicted to it and can't stop playing. Blizzard do you need a game director for this?

    Might be the issue honestly. The Warcraft IP doesn't appeal to general audiences like they want it to, but it appeals to MMO lovers. If they focused less on dumbing down their game and making worthless phone shit, they would probably turn a larger profit than they do appealing to people who will never play it.

    People absolutely did lose their shit over Hearthstone because mobile.

    (Diablo Immortal too, but Blizzard deserved it there for being completely tone deaf to their audience and expectations)

    I don't know which particular genre of internet hangup this is, gamers yelling at clouds because we're old and don't "get" phone games, or some kind of gatekeeping for gaming platforms, or just another brand of "stop liking what I don't like," but it's fucking dumb. I have zero interest in mobile games personally but it's a massive market and Blizzard would be foolish to ignore it, especially after the great success of hearthstone.

    "It really is an amazing team!", instead of "It really is an amazing game!"

    On a more serious note, why does Blizzard making a mobile game, or whatever else, be reason to stop playing another one of their titles?

    They have over 10 games on their launcher, yet a mobile one is the straw that broke the camels back? laughable boys, laughable

    your point is? just because something is beneficial to you doesn't mean you should do it.

    Seriously. What is the problem in making a game for mobile? Do either of you somehow think that Activision-Blizzard are pulling developers from WoW's team to work on this thing? Do you also think that Blizzard shouldn't do April's Fools jokes because "they could instead use that time to fix the bugs and better balance the game"?

    Why does the news that Blizzard is working on a Warcraft mobile game offend you so much that you are cancelling your subscriptions? Which, by the way, I personally think you two weren't subscribed to the game already, and are just posting this for 'fake-outrage' points.

    Hmmmm weird that when someone mentions a wow version on consoles people lose their minds about how it could never work on a console because it's such a complicated game with too many buttons (although that's complete bs , controllers have easily enough even for the most complicated classes) but a mobile game being announced and everyone's like "yeah makes sense , sounds good" lmao

    It's painful to hear all of those great Blizzard developers are working on a mobile game. We haven't had a new Warcraft game in over 15 years, and the next in the lineup is for mobile. Damn man, this is so frustrating. It doesn't even have to be Warcraft 4. I'd take an ARPG, new MMO, even a single player Warcraft game. WoW is just so bloated and stale now that it no longer satisfies my Warcraft itch.

    I dont care about mobile games, if thats your poison be my guest. But i really hate to see wow content drought because of this. Sadly thats what we see right now - 9.1 is months away and we are stuck with one raid for more that half a year! Not even raid tier.. one fucking raid
