Default WoW - Cataclysm Impressions

September 1st, 2009, 20:46
Ten Ton Hammer have written their impresions on the latest World of Warcraft extension and are very impressed with what is being offered.
The proposed changes to the game that have been announced this weekend is nothing short of a complete reinvention. Many MMO games have needed such an overhaul to try and rebuild an eroded player base or resuscitate a dying world; Blizzard is the first to do it while their game is still on top. Itís akin to a fiery phoenix being reborn from another fiery phoenix. Many were beginning to see parallels to older games that seemed to peak right around the five year mark and then start a rapid descent into obscurity, but Blizzard once again proves to have their finger squarely on the pulse of the gaming world and has hooked up a massive defibrillator to shock a still beating heart. We look forward to seeing these changes brought to market and anticipate new heights for a game that already has reached into the stratosphere.

While I applaud the efforts Blizzard staff puts into keeping their game interesting, it's just too little, too late in my opinion.

The environment has devolved into a "my gear is better than yours, you suck" and Blizzard perpetuates that and it keeps turning people off after they hit max level. The 'raiding' model does this I suppose. Not sure what their answer is, but changing the scenery isn't going to do it.

They've made a fortune on WOW, so I'm sure they're not real worried about it, one way or another.
