    WoW slowly stepping into in danger zone

    With Genshin Impact making over $100 million in two weeks, recovering the full cost of developing and running the game and the rising popularity on twitch despite there not being much of a social feel to the game, what will happen to WoW when more mmo games are released in 2021?

    I don’t get why such a cringe worthy game like genshin impact is able to do what it did in two weeks both in terms of monetary gain and popularity...it’s no wow killer, but the more it grows the more it overshadows wow and that’s only just one new game...

    Can blizzard devs please listen to the players and not remove all that is fun from the game?

    Can we please have our fun back, namely the stuff recently removed from the game and make some changes to the overly restrictive plethora of systems?

    Edit:

    Just an FYI, it’s not about GI. I only used it as an example of what is to come.

    Some of you asked me to be specific on what “fun” was it that the devs have recently removed or changed not to the players liking (proven by negative feedback). To name a few:
    1- legion legendary effects disabled (why not just restrict them to Legion content only, same with artifact weapon powers)
    2- getting kicked out of chrome time at 50
    3- the time it takes to go back to a covenant
    4- rank 4 essences removed
    5- adding option to disable xp gains as solution to Chromie Time kicking players out
    6- AoE cap for a pure dps class (hunter)
    7- Conduit Energy System (why not treat it like the standard class talent tree and let players swap at will?)

    Is this the next "wow killer"?

    As to what will happen, probably nothing, like the last 16 years.

    So what does your title have to do with the post itself? It's more about Genshin Impact's success than WoW "stepping into danger zone", whatever that means.

    Those graphics are amazing.

    I mean, they have to scrap the current WoW engine and do something at least on the level of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I know they are trying to upgrade the graphics in the current engine but it really doesn't cut it.

Space platforms as in Starcraft. Just a totally fantastic tileset & theme that I'd be very keen to explore. They could do some wild things.

    Never heard of this game, so I Googled it, and now I'm probably on some sort of watch list. Very weird and creepy.

    How is it weird and creepy? It just looks like a anime-style game.

    I've said it before but I'll say it again, the only thing that will kill WoW is WoW.

    I don’t get why such a cringe worthy game like genshin impact is able to do what it did in two weeks both in terms of monetary gain and popularity...

    I haven't played it and only see screenshots but how is it "cringe worthy"? Is it the dialog or something?

    Why do you care how other MMO is doing anyway?
    If you enjoy WoW, just play it and if you don't, just quit.

    it's an anime-botw, with massive funding, with an addicting game play loop and plenty of content to do at launch, and its the type of game anyone can play.

    as far as money goes, well, it's a predatory gacha-game that launched in several countries, of course its going to bring in money.

    its only cringe if you dont like anime. a lot of people like anime

    It's because it's a new game and the same thing happens with most new games that are popular on twitch. I'm not saying it's a bad game, but you have to remember that this game is only a few weeks/months old and WoW is going to have it's 16th YEAR anniversary next month. How many other subscription based MMORPG's have lasted as long as WoW? I've seen some try, but in the end they don't keep up.
    Most likely the wisest Enhancement Shaman.

    Lol Ion’s revenge for wow ruining his lawyer career eh. Slowly and sneakily kill the game...

    A rush of people playing don't mean jack... just like Apex Legends. That game quickly hit obscurity despite it being so popular initially.

    Hype trend, nothing more.

    Plus Genshin Impact isn't an MMO...

    How is genshin impact a cringe worthy game? What do you have any thing against Waifu collector gacha games?

    Genshin impact also have cross platform with the mobile version.. so does this mean you are against all Gacha games like Azur lane, Arknights, Girls frontline & Fate?
