Blizzcon, or should I say Mehcon

I fear Blizzard is slowly losing it's mojo and the recent Blizzcon proves that point. They keep on milking their cash cows with new expansions for World of Warcraft and Hearthstone. There are no new games announced, fan favorite Warcraft 4 and Diablo 4 are not even teased. Starcraft 2 is done and will become free to play title. There is nothing that really excites me with Blizzard games anymore. Yes, I play Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone almost daily, but that is only because I need my multiplayer fix.
Diablo 3 I haven't touched since Necromancer hero pack, Starcraft 2 also. Overwatch will have some new heroes and maps, nothing big. Heroes of the Storm is not even worth mentioning. What can I say, Blizzard, pull your shit together or it is downhill from here.

Honestly, I do like the new expansion for World of Warcraft. I'm a WoW gamer since Vanilla and that one was the best. Horde vs Alliance. The crap they brough to us with Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor and Legion were just pathetic and wasn't the essence of WoW at all. But with this one I have hope again.

Just one more thing to say.... FOR THE ALLIANCE!

Clearly fans of WoW are happy with the expansion, wish I was a long term Wower to join the fun. I would pick the horde if I played the game :)

Well. I'm happy with the expansion. Just very curious on how they go back to basic. We've been fighting common enemies for 4-5 expansions already. The horde and alliance have been fighting back to back this long already. What ignites the fury again? Just wondering :D

Horde is pretty amazing to play and I have a horde character but nothing beats walkin into Stormwind as an Alliance!

I had one character on lvl 54 Pandaren Hunter just to try the game out, I ended liking it, but that monthly subscription was not for me back then. Now I feel there are many decent MMO's without monthly subscription and I would always pick those over subscription based WoW.

The monthly subscription sucks indeed. And there are some decent MMO's out there, I've tried them as well. But... I dont know.. WoW keeps lingering and is still the best in my opinion.

They added a token that you can buy for a great amount of gold and turn it in for playtime. I haven't payed a subscription in a year or so. But it requires some farming and knowledge on how to get gold quickly ;)

As always I like your work
Thanks for sharing
I hope to have time to play the game

Thank you for stopping by.

Honestly, Blizzard has been shit for a while. For me the golden days ended since they launched Diablo 3, probably earlier when they only did WoW stuff. Now that company is plagued by lootboxes and SJWs, so ... frankly, I couldn't care less if they fall one of these days. It won't happen too soon though, ... unfortunately.

Either the existing games and their expansions make enough money to to prevent the need for new IP, or it's not making enough. Alternatively, they're investing in a major project that is taking a VERY long time. And when it comes out - we're all going to need to upgrade our gaming rigs.

Well clearly they want to milk those cash cows and from business perspective it is not even worth to create a new game. Maybe next year they will announce something big but I wouldn't bet on it.

Me neither. But cows grow dry. And if you're not ready..

Blizzard got some nice game but i always preferred Hideo Kojima games.

I am so hyped for vanilla and new expansion, that I forgot about Diablo...they really should make next sequel, necromantion pack doesnt count!

·

Yeah necro pack wasn't enough to keep people interested, Diablo3 is done judging by the shape the game is in right now.

Great post, Upvoted please stop by and help spread the steem on my last post it would mean allot!
