    Default Can Pretty Models Save WoW?

    I've played World of Warcraft for more time than I like to admit. It was... scratch that. is the game almost every other MMO takes key from.

    With the new expansion, Warlords of Draenor , they're going to be be updating the visuals of the game in an attempt to modernize it. The new models are looking great- on par with lots of today's new games that share a similar art style. But is that enough?

    I don't think so.

    Like I mentioned, the game is going to look good. Just looking at it, you're not going to think that it was released a decade ago. That's where the rejuvenation stops.

    With no announced plans to modernize the actual gameplay, WoW is, at heart, the same game people have been playing for 10 years! It's the same gameplay that other developers have essentially been copying, tweaking, improving ever since.

    Playing World of Warcraft: WoD looks to be the equivalent of a 20 year old playing with a shiny baby toy. They may pick it, give it a shake but then they realize it's a f*cking baby toy.

    The gameplay in WoW can't even come close to comparing to the games that were spawned because of it. It may appeal to people who have never played a decent modern MMO but it's most likely not going to bring back old players or convert players who are already invested in another MMO.

    I personally won't be buying the expansion.

    Yes. "Save WoW."
    As in the game has been in decline the last few years. Declines that have persisted despite the last two expansions.

    To Save WoW would be to halt the decline and possibly result in long term gains.

    Why do they need to change the formula when they still have several million subscribers, and are making billions of dollars off of the game? Not to mention, they've experienced an increased subscriber base since the announcement of Warlords of Draenor. Honestly, anyone who thinks WoW is dying anytime soon is deluding themselves.


    Currently playing: FFXIV (Elucifer Arclight, Leviathan server), LoL (Trash Tier Waifu, NA server), SMITE (Zacewing)

    "They've experienced an increased subscriber base since the announcement of Warlords of Draenor."
    It's unique phenomenon that that has occurred every time Blizzard has announced an expansion for WoW. The last two expansions have shown this to be a short term increase.

    Sure, It will take WoW a while to die, but there is a continuing decline that if left unimpeded will lead to the game not being profitable enough for Acti-Blizz to maintain.

    I'll take it you might've played end-game of one xpac?

    And WoW is ****ed, they will keep losing more and more unless they stop catering to whining children's every woe.
    I was pretty excited to play WoD until I read that they are removing all stuns, silences, fears etc.
