    Figured this might be interesting to some.

    Blizzard and Netease were working on a mobile WoW MMO. I say were because they cancelled it.. As the tweet says, it would've been set in the WoW universe but at a different time period.

    Interesting what could have been. Though as it would've been a mobile MMO and seeing the stuff with Diablo Immortal...

    I think we're better off without that game existing.

    The time adventure quests are a treasure.

    We even get to meet ourselves.

    These renown reward tracks make me so excited for Dragonflight!

    It's all about world content, exploration, professions, and immersion. Brilliant!

    Hey guys. I was thinking about the time skip described in the new dialogues between Lorthemar and Thalyssra/ Mathias and Genn.

    Do you think that could mean we will see Vol'jin as a Loa sooner rather than later? As well as Lakali for example (the Loa that we haven't really met yet, that was being munched on by the final boss at the Tirna Scithe dungeon).

    I don't think Lakali was ever mentioned to be Azerothian.

    C'mon, it has been 2 weeks since his initial release. It is obvious that his first model was a placeholder.
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    Even then. It's a deprecated questing mob that never had anything more than the bog standard default Gnoll model. Getting a unique model is already kinda pointless unless we should expect more Hogger related content.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    I read the article. Some of the choices made by the company are really weird.

    I heard its codename was Neptune > which makes me think of water. Which would've actually probably been a good thing around this time or next year to release. I mean all the Aquaman stuff going on but mostly the new Avatar movie. I've been down with the aquatic scene. Probably one of the various reasons I dug BFA. Which means I wouldn't like to see it repeated in WoW so soon. Still as a spinoff if it was good enough.. I might've actually attempted to try out a mobile game.

    Then I heard about another project that got cancelled called Orbis. If it was executed properly, it might've done considerable well. Both projects.

    I just don't understand why they went with the choices they did. I heard the Arclight rumble took some heavy influences from another mobile game. I really wouldn't know. I just have no incentive to try it by looking at it. Some others might tho.

    All that aside what I gathered from different articles was that the partner has been unreliable and incompetent. Which most definitely would have some dire circumstances for the company. I wonder why they continue to partner with them if every project has rather been cut or not meeting expectations. Maybe they should focus less on outsourcing if it has such poor results. For the company and the consumers.

    Oh that's a good point, I'd forgotten about that possibility! Though there's still all the Loa we helped rescue along with Vol'jin right?

    I don't get it. Why did they create a fully unique model for him when he is dead and not relevant anymore? We have characters that are playing way bigger roles in Dragonflight that did not get their own unique models. Make it make sense.

    Because he's gonna be in the time travelling content they're making. Several maps have been added, including one called the Gnoll Wars

    Then I guess that makes him relevant at least.

    Gnoll wars was before WC1 so he was not alive back then.
    Also it currently looks like that you just quickly race through this Gnoll Wars map and don't really do anything there.
