Gamers Will Continue to Give Blizzard Their Money
SANTA MONICA, CA – A recent report estimates that 8 million people subscribe to World of Warcraft, an MMORPG that Blizzard will begin downsizing. Parts of the game that are now considered luxuries and inevitably upset millions of subscribers will be removed. These luxuries are well known as WoW exclusives and the changes will not be well received.
“This is how gamers will react: Blizzard will cut back anything that initially brought gamers to the MMO, which will make it unbearable to play and not worth the subscription; people will continue to pay because they are addicted, and then they will continue on with dailies, PUGs and crafting,” Blizzard President Michael Morhaime told staff. He added that players will sound off their frustrations on any social media platform they choose before returning to the game they love to hate because “If you hate a game and quit, and you go back to it, it’s yours, if you don’t, it never was.”
Every six months, gamers can expect more changes to WoW, worse than before. The first proposed changes include merging PvE and PvP servers and doing away with servers classified by language or region. Six months after this change has taken effect, they will do away with switching factions as players will have to learn to deal with what they have created. They will also be doubling the price per account. Blizzard execs have been assured that the addiction among WoW gamers will be too strong for people to quit the game permanently, and that no length of being clean will prevent an inevitable relapse.
