The WoW Killer!

Posted on 11/16/2013 by with 2 comments


Firstly, let me say I don’t play World of Warcraft now, I did along time ago and it wasn’t for that long of time. I just got bored with it, because I didn’t know anyone who played so I gave it up. I do occasionally get in to try the latest update and to see what is new for expansions, but I’m not up for dedicating too much time to it right now.

Now that I said that, just to clear up I am not a WoW hater. I feel like WoW to me is like a shirt that I outgrew so I just don’t play as much as I used too.

So I finally after checking all the facts I have found the elusive WoW killer, and if you read on your will find out for yourself.

The Killer!

I can’t remember how many times I heard this game (insert game title here) will be the Wow killer. I have heard this so many time and amazingly WoW is still standing. How can this be?

Of course you can point out that the game is in decline since it has been losing subscribers. It’s not like there abandoning ship, just a few dropping out here and there.

What is it that makes Wow so Popular?

You will get so many answers if you ask World of Warcraft players what makes the game popular. From the people who I know here are a few of their answers.

I have a friend that likes Wow because of the stylized or cartoony graphics.

I have a friend that likes it because he thinks it’s easy to get into game play.

I have another friend that plays it because his friend that he doesn’t see very much of plays it, so he get in to talk to him there.

I would say that one reason that it is still up and kicking is because they have a dedicated team that keep pumping out expansions and new content.

I am by no means a World of Warcraft expert, but it is obvious that Blizzard did their homework when they designed WoW and its expansions. Even though the game is in slow decline it is still very profitable. During the last 3 years we have seen go from 12 million subscribers to right now about 7.6 million still a very impressive number.

We don’t know what the future hold for WoW but I’m sure it will be around for a long time.

The WoW killer exposed!

I thought originally the free to play games have and could do some damage to WoW, that may be the case that is slowly bleeding it of players. I would have to guess this is most of the subscriber loss.

There can only be one choice when it comes to picking what will be the WoW killer and that was quite an easy pick, it is World of Warcraft itself has to the WoW killer.  Blizzard will have to shoot themselves in the foot and the only ones that destroy the great thing that they have going, but that’s just my opinion.

So today I ask you, what  will kill World of Warcraft?

    WOW is so popular because when it came out it was the most polished MMO on the market. It retains a loyal following as many players don’t want to abandon the years worth of work they have invested and friends they have made online. Who will kill WOW? Probably Blizzard when they decide to make a new MMO or time as people gradually tire of the genre.
