[iponz] Blizzard trademarks "Heroes of the Storm" - Page 8

Activision doesnt let them do anything, its a joint partnership hence the name Blizzard/Acitivision. Second they can have LONG dev times because they deliver more than most companies out there. Name ONE game that didnt sell incredibly well. D3 is still going very strong, ya it had issues but its the only game that really did from them and theyve fixed most of them by now on top of more planned.

Research before you post here again.

WoW is still the largest MMO out there with their massive drop recently in subscribers.

You suffer from blind hate at them just because they dont pump out games lol. Id rather they take their time and release yet another gem.

The 1999 release of b.net edition was to follow the release of d2 which was the birth of b.net. it was the beginning of a social gaming platform. WC2 was such a highly played game it was a logical step for them to include it with true online gameplay.

So take your Windows 3 edition and install it on Windows 2000 and see how it works. Just because it has the same maps doesn't make it the same development effort. Though like I said. It doesn't matter...especially what they were doing near 15 years ago. NOW DAYS...They have messed around too much and from all accounts look to be loosing fans and I don't mean just WoW. They really needed a hit with Diablo 3 and we all saw how that ended up. Even with Starcraft 2 there was like over 4 million sales world wide...and now days hardly any one plays it. The rare times I see a match going on an e-sport stream there will hardly be any viewers of it. If Blizzard doesn't hurry up and make something new...and good...they are going to be forgotten and you are going to have to go find some other company to defend for no good reason.

And every knows the distiction between Activision and Blizzard...but their names are tied together. The current situation is like if Chevy stopped releasing new models of cars...you think GM would put up with it? Even though they can't waltz in there and tell them what to do...they would at least be talking to them about it.

Not dormant, but more double accounts, more bots and gold sellers, more people only collecting pets once a week compared to Vanilla.

I'll tell you what, for the last period I played wow I had become a "goblin", it's what they call those that play the market as their main thing, millions of gold and all, and I had realized there are tons of players nowadays that have 2 or more accounts for the express purpose to play the market (mainly for playing also the neutral one at the same time but also for checking them out during raiding), they were virtually nonexistent in Vanilla and maybe even TBC.

edit: Holy crap, that's probably why they added a third auction house these days.

Iv'e always had 2x accounts in every mmo iv'e played. Specially in Rift where you can only play one class per toon... I still have 500,000 plat on my warrior biggrin.gif I would guess that's probably still a metric ton of currency.

I could just never get into WoW... By the time it released I was already doing high-end content in FFXI, which is a totally different story. One of the last great pre-kiddy generation MMO.

It may be renamed but it's still a glorified mario cart meets arcade action pseudo-RPG.
