    The FPS genre was new to them but in the end Overwatch is just a 6v6 simplified version of TF2.

    But you're right. I wonder when was the last time Blizzard innovated...

    As an investor ATVI looks great. Company is fine as is. Potential massive upside with future Warcraft Pokémon Go.

    As an old school gamer Blizzard is 100% dead though.
    As a professional investor let me assure you that atvi is NOT a good buy. It’s ea and ttwo are better buys within the sector.

    Take atvi for example: they are a company reliant on two aging franchises (cod and wow) and both have hit new low points with fans and will likely see falloff year over year. Their failure is not investing in new gamers for the future.

    Ttwo has red dead, gta, and borderlands for 2019. Ea has fifa and made ultimate team money (don’t sleep on that $) while atvi has... wow classic and mw4? Atvi has nothing for 2019 that is gonna bring in big money

    They are NOT dying at all.

    But again if you lose nearly 20% of your players over all your games in 6 months then there's something going on. That's not out of the ordinary when content is being thrown out for those games.
    LMFAO! your funny.

Someone in this thread even said "consumers know the real state of blizzard shareholders know nothing" as if the SEC isn't a bunch of absolute bloodhounds. WoW, Blizzard, ATVI - none of them are going anywhere, no matter how many YouTubers make clickbait videos saying everything is dying.
    As both a pro stockholder and gamer; there is a small nugget of truth that gamers will be more in tune with game companies and news than stock investors. Many of my stock friends mocked my hard for getting into game stocks last decade but I sold last October and would caution against investing in atvi. Ea and ttwo are worth holding because of their steady cash flow for the foreseeable future, but atvi is in a world of hurt.

    Blizzard is actually the one good performer in the atvi portfolio. Not all of them are winners though and the only game profitable for Blizz atm is wow. Which will need heavy investment to win people back. Secondly, as expensive as wow classic is to redevelop they will never see that money recouped because it comes with our current sub fee

    The issue with atvi vs something like ea, is that atvi put all of its hopes in a few franchises that are inevitably fading away. Bo4 is the most despised cod ever, and even though it sold a lot at launch, it’s prwctically dead now online and only there to abuse whales. Wow and cod aren’t popular enough or gaining ground anymore, and since they legit have no other title worth playing in 2019, they are a poor investment.

    Meanwhile, ea has madden and fifa ultimate teams which each generate more money than cod and wow combined. Atvi doesn’t have the luxury of sports titles to carry them yearly. Even ttwo is a better investment from a pure investment standpoint.

    Atvi does not really have a major aaa title this year not named wow classic or cod mw4 and that’s a disaster for shareholders

    I said on the market. As in the PC game market. You could even compare it to other games that have a full box buy in price + a subscription.

    The cash shop is a fucking DISGRACE. Stop defending it.
    I'm not defending the cash shop, literally said it in my first reply to you. Read properly, please.

    Again, WoW's cash shop is nothing out of the ordinary, as in the PC market. I'd say it's fair to say the other two contenders for the top MMO's of the moment are ESO and FFXIV, right? Their cash shops are basically the same in essence (services & cosmetics), but ESO's cash shop makes WoW's cash shop seem passable when it comes to MTX's for example, ESO even has loot boxes lmao. Literally, WoW cash shop nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to PC games.

    It is indeed a disgrace, but it is what it is. Such are the times.

    Yep. Just put a 10 sec CD on it or something, and while we're at it: Make it baseline.

    There's several talents where I'm pretty sure if they were just baseline, nobody would mind. Spirit Bomb was insanely good for a good portion of Legion and is really good in BFA, too. The abililty is fun, interacts well with the build, the only "problem" is that you can spam it like crazy.

    As such: Give it a short CD, make it baseline. I doubt any DHs would mind, and we could get another talent that maybe just reduces its cooldown and increases its damage or something if you don't wanna reinvent the wheel.

    Oh well. Won't happen, class changes before an expansion are rarely a thing.

    I can deal with it as is for now but we definitely have the right idea, the cooldown just has to be low enough that we can keep the debuff up.

    Ok, now try to say what you just said, but in English. Us mere mortals cannot comprehend your obviously more advanced language.

    You certainly have the intellectual capacities of a typical Blizzard fanboy, that's for sure... All hail Asmongold, immarite?

    On average wow is about 35% higher, but where it really matters is wows insane price for server transfers and race changes, two huge money makers.

    Over 8% of players departing the monthly use doesn’t sound very good, considering there were more losses reported in the last review.

    Something all of the three games I've mentioned prior share are name change services. In WoW and FFXIV, the cost is $10 USD, while ESO's service costs 2500 crowns (their cash currency), that's about $20.

    The prices of other similar services are in line with each other as well. Pretty ordinary pricing, if you ask me.

    It sucks, but that's how modern gaming is.

    These financials shouldn't be too surprising. They were able to trim the fat. They've had a few Overwatch events with skins. WoW had a couple events with purchasable mounts. CoD had some events.

    yeah can be debated on how great OW overall is, but I like the game. It was also something new they did.

    At this point it looks like Blizzard is done being innovating. They will pump out content for the current games they have a kill it off when its no longer a moneymachine.

    I bet we will get something mobile related in the warcraft or starcraft world this time around.

    Can someone tell me how are they counting those MAUs? Is this the number of players that logged in to any game during the quarter?
