    I'm not saying this justifying blizzard or anything. but isn't there a chance that the man had enough & wants to retire? blizzard did indeed shift their strategy with cost cutting. But we have to understand that this is a company. They will be trying to maximize their profits whether you like it or not. Mobile market is huge gold cow. even shitty games makes millions there.

    All i'm saying is that you have the right to paranoid, but you can only speak with your wallet.

    When were the "suits" not in control? When was this golden era of Blizzard gaming when they weren't a company?

    People just use Activision as a convenient scapegoat for anything they don't like.

    also why is this in the classic subforum

    What about the 100s that have come and gone since 2008? They have nothing to lose to say it's happening. Yet they all follow the same views.

    It was never my intention to make this mistake. I edited my post to correct that.
    Yep! Fortunately it's just art assets. Honestly I think they're doing a pretty damn good job, though as people have mentioned, there are some minor changes here and there that would make the readability of units a little better (like adding a white rim to the footmen's shield/slightly toning down their shoulder-pad size, making the 'colored bands' on some units stand out a little more, etc.).

    Link where can I buy CE achievements and gear? Thanks.





    Source?
    You do know, that micro transactions doesnt instantly mean P2W? They sell mounts, and transmog pieces. Just as ESO does, but none of it is P2W.

    Just buy gold and the piece from AH.

    They sell levels. That is P2W. They sell gold. That is P2W. Any time and moment you insert a coin inside a game and gain in-game benefit it's P2W. There's no slippery slopes here. Some idiots think they can move the goalpost but their arguments always fall flat once you point out that no game in the world really is P2W because they're not literally buying end credits.

    WoW is and has been P2W game for quite a while.

    Just replying to my part.

    Let me get this straight, a game that is end game focused, sells you a boost to not even level cap, and you consider that P2W? What have they won compared to me? A max level mythic geared warlock? I levelled the good old fashioned way. What bonus do they have I do not?
