Patch 9.1 PTR - Korthia Zone Preview
Korthia is a new zone added to the Maw in 9.1 where a bulk of the outdoor content will be taking place. It is relatively the size of Nazjatar, possibly a bit smaller. This is the city of secrets, with lots of architecture seen in Oribos.

    hmm, really not sure if this works out for a patch, that will stay for 1/2 to 3/4 year. i assume next bigger stuff we see for wow in 9.2 will be xmas 21 or later. hmm, looks very „low cost mode“ to me. not „WoD mode“, but... hmm not very hyped tbh. but we will see.

    Adding such zones is not a way to design a successful patch. If that zone will become the main content for 6 months, with maw being second major zone, expect big loss of subscribers.
    could be true, in conjunction with the overall state of the game. i am curious how this works out, 2 months after patch release. it dont have to fail. but i would not bet my last shirt on it.

    Hardly. PoE may have delayed the PoE2 Beta but of course in the end, all it is is a sequel that just adds on to PoE base game anyway so there's no big loss there and in the time that Activision has taken just to finally put out it's 1st big patch for SL, PoE has put out at least 2 or 3 major content patches on a regular basis keeping players engaged in a game. Of course, it's no surprise when GGG was created by some of Blizzard's former employees and make a good game.

    Clearly, Activision doesn't listen to players' opinions cause so many like me quit wow. Your question really does prove the point that many have pointed out that they don't listen because if they did, they wouldn't have left a lot of these systems like "adventures" in the game that many players told them they didn't want. Anyone that defends them really are new players who don't see how bad WoW went downhill after Lich King ended. WoW will end soon enough as do all games after so long.

    Uh huh. You quit, therefore everybody quit. After all, you are the center of the known universe and there isn't a possibility that people like a video game you don't like. Can you just admit that you're not upset about the game changing, you're upset that Blizzard had the audacity to change the game without checking with you first? How dare they!

    Full new story, new classes, complete system overhauls, ect. It’s a absolutely massive loss and it’s been pushed back by two years at a minimum.

    The equivalent in wow would would be pushing the launch of shadowlands back by two years but still putting out smaller patch’s and that’s a way bigger delay then a smaller patch being delayed a couple months.

    So ya exile is an awful example to use as they are further behind then blizzard by a lot.

    You are as dumb as you sound. You can look through HUNDREDS of comments and threads on the site of people saying the same thing that they quit the game because of activision not listening to players.

    TIL the plural of anecdote is, in fact, data.

    Protip my dude: For every player who unsubs because they didn't get listened to, there's ten players who stayed subbed because they were listened to. Unless, of course, you somehow know the reason every WoW player has ever quit (and, coincidentally it's exactly the reasons you think they did).
