    Doubt it, but why is that even restricted?

    It would be an absolutely valid complaint though. Why shouldn't you be able to turn into any race given that is the defined skill of literally every dragon?
    Few players choosing to be a gnome dragon wouldn't make the claim that Chromie is an oddity for choosing a gnome form any less correct.
    Most dragons choose humans or Belf appearances, and this would absolutely be the same in they became playable in WoW.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

At the end of MoP we were down to 7.5 million players. in Warlords of Draenor we dipped down to ~5 million players, and Blizzard decided to stop doing subscription announcements around that time.

    Given that WoW lost 7 million players between 2011-2015, I'd imagine we're quite a bit lower than those 5 million over these past 7 years, even if we assume that the decline stopped being as sharp as it was before.


    Blizzard's definitely focused less on WoW past couple of years so they've probably found ways to cut corners and cheap out to keep it profitable for longer, but we can't be all *that* far away from the line that crosses into unprofitable. WoW has a fraction of the playerbase it once had.
    WoW's highest playerbase was during Cataclysm actually. I always like how Wrathbabies love to count the entire first year of Cataclysm reaching the peak as "WotLK"

    It's weird how there are no apparent image leaks of this supposed new class.

Further, there's a large audience of MMO players who highly enjoy technology classes, so bringing in a Tinker would attract that audience as well. An audience who might not be currently playing WoW because there isn't a class that appeals to them.
    It's demanded by a minority of the player see on fansites, honestly if tinker gets mentioned over a potential caster class my purchase and continued subscription would not be secured and I think many others would feel the same.

    Except that its proven science that people prefer the known to the unknown. WoW fans are no different. They'd rather have something known become a permanent part of the game than something unknown and untested. That's just common sense.

    On Blizzard's part, it's a MASSIVE risk to implement an unknown and untested race and class concept into the game. Again, it's common sense for them to bring in something that has an established fan base within the community.

    At this point I dont even know if I believe theres a new class, if the talent trees are legit they might aswell just have put all their work into that to update all current classes, but we'll see later, I really do hope I'm wrong because I want a new spellcaster D:

    But we saw humanoid forms of the new race. So you say the screenshots are fake?

  17. #48177
    God, if they can’t be every race, which is 100% going to happen because of all the customization needed, we’re 100000% going to get “Chromiegate” where people shit on the concept.

    If people would think though, they would understand the hassle playing a real dragon PC. Armor clipping, invisible hit boxes etcetera.

    I believe all of those numbers include China. I think a Blizzard rep mentioned around 2019 that retail WoW is about 70% Chinese players
