When Blizzard changed its platform from PC to Internet, it fell. Don't deny it no one can.

I’ll never forget this. In 2004, when WoW was erupting, an Origin employee who worked on Ultima Online was telling us that Blizzard was finished. This was contrary to Blizzard really skyrocketing as a company then.

He said, paraphrasing, “World of Warcraft will change the company.” We all know this is true. While some argue about the art styles and lore issues, the truly significant change was the shift of Blizzard changing their platform to the Internet. After WoW, all their games became Internet based.

There entire company focus shifted from good sp games to what we now call services.
