    Covid-19 response? Lol. Gosh, the entire world is being suckered right now by these global elites pushing this shit causing a lockdown on the entire planet. Wake up people. This is all bullshit that has been blown of proportion to cause society to turn into a bunch of government wanking hermits. Get outside, live life, open your businesses, and start being free people. These corporations that are going with the flow of this are falling in an orderly line with this agenda that has been set in motion years ago. Head up, people. This ain’t shit.

    I think you dont have any idea of what you're talking about here.

    Point me to where I said anything about chinese players playing on west servers, I cant find anything about it in my post.

    Activision is down 30 mil which I expected because all of their recent titles have been trash. but Blizzard MAUs have been a flat line for years. The only new thing they released in 2019 was Diablo 3 on Nintendo Switch so I don't think it's that bad. 2020 will bring Shadowlands, and likely Overwatch 2 beta by late 2020, that's going to push the numbers up big time.

    According to some other site, COVID has been good for the gaming business overall. "While Activision Blizzard reported net revenues down about 2% to $1.79 billion for the quarter ended March 31, net bookings -- the total amount consumers spent on the company's products without deferring revenue as required by GAAP -- were up almost 21% year-over-year to $1.52 billion."

    It is interesting, because (not least according to this forum) it is retail that is incredibly grindy...AP, Paragon rep, doing the same chores to get the right TF / WF / corruption....mounts etc.

    On the other hand, ppl nowadys hit lv 60 very fast and faceroll the raid content.

    What exactly is there in Classic that is grindy and where is the quick reward in retail?

    Does it? On worldofwarcraft.com for example it says only 2020

    Yeah, I'd say Classic has more of the easy rewards for people to enjoy. I'll have to work far harder for the best piece of gear on Live than someone does on Classic. Nevermind shit like new reps every patch, RNG on RNG, mounts, M+ etc.

    I see the appeal with Classic's reward systems, even if they're not interesting and far too lacking for myself.

    It’s all depending on what they excepted. If they expected 40 millions less then 30 millions is a good result.

    As someone who works in health care and has a wife that works directly with COVID-19 patients, I can say you are part of the problem and pushing conspiracy theories is against the rules.

    Not sure where is says that. It says it is doing better in the east, which you guys have claimed as fake accounts for years, while retail is doing better in the west, which you guys have called the real accounts for years.

    Hello everyone,

    I hope you are well and safe, considering the Covid-9 situation.

    So for the younger generation and those of you who are moving into mid management to high/senior management positions and you need to present to the troops in a positive way as to not cause and infractions or low morale here’s my quick guide on how to do it:

    “Challenging times”
    “The question really is..”
    “Unforeseen difficulties”
    “Strong signs”
    “Positive pattern”
    “Remarkable upturn”
    “Unprecedented”
    “Overall viewpoint”
    “On course”
    “Viable options”
    “Restrictive scenario”
    “Balancing the workload”
    “Predefined goals”
    “Future investment”

    You can use any of the above in practically any context to make something out of nothing, and in this case a hourglass running out of sand.

    Cheers,
    Dec

    Blizzard is not stupid despite what many think. They announce dates a d time frames when they know they can hit them.

    D3 for Switch was released in 2018.

    Under 1 million subs would guarantee downsizing of the team, less content, and f2p, so yes in this case, yes it would matter.

    Indeed.

    Instead, they've hired more people for the development of the game during BfA. That's a good thing.

    Blizzard will see a person who subs on March 1 and March 29 in the same way from a financial perspective. That money has already been realized.
    1. Yeah 150 million... You know how little of the world that is. Here is how much of the world population that is. 1.9273633103860166
    Just about 2%

    2. So no, having 150million people in lockdown does not mean even a slight minority of them will come to wow, especially since the areas at lockdown were not really blizzard main audiences. Atleast till end of March. And no, a ton of people joining at the last few days does not suddenly kick up their metrics. Cause they need to be joined for awhile, people playing for 1 day do not count. They do not track those people, as they see them as just pop ins.

    You know Chinese people don't HAVE to play on Chinese servers right? Just like how the EU and us don't have to play on EU and US? Do you really fucking think the Chinese gold seller bots that have been in the game for 15 years is a hoax?
