“When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.”
The Genius of Classic WoW
Help me out here. Is it possible that Classic WoW will be the answer to all of Ion’s problems?
I was reading The Last Chapter Guild’s post on June Gaming Goals with a citing of two different points of view on Classic. Then, I wondered “what about Blizzard?”.
If memory serves, Warlords of Draenor got a lot of criticism for not enough content. So, Ion decided that several things needed to be done; including better pacing of content releases.
We also saw a dreary endless solution of filling power bars designed to keep us logging in every day and we hate it. The AP Solution was soon seen as a masked attempt to keep the Monthly Active User count up and looking good for investors. A goofy metric if you ask me, we subscribe by the month.
The genius of Classic is that it is married to our main account. And, when we are bored with WoW, we will go play Classic and keep those MAU numbers cooking along. I know that I’ll do that, I like this game a lot.
For me, I have never fallen for all of the other games like Overwatch or that card game. In fact, I’d rather fish in Nazmir than go to another game. But, the step over to Classic would be easy and fun when the current game drags.
In the next expansion with Classic at our side, I expect a return to the good old days when I could level my healer to “raid ready” and park him. Then I could jump on my hunter and go adventuring. It really was a good way to play. Finishing things is so important!
So, come August, do you think that Ion can finally relax?
