Ok I admit this has been a bad week for me, at least in terms of WoW time, FF13 was released this weekend and it is cutting into heroic time.
And no Doz, I will never admit it is a waste of money. now as far as FF12 I will.
Del appears needs time to take a break from WoW. BOO! At you!!!!!!
I find my time in WoW, I am just sitting around a lot…my priest does not need any badge gear. I dont like to PuG things. I could chain heroic…but for some reason I am not as comfortable with it as with it as paladin. Healing is something I understand, WoW tanking not so much. I would heal on paladin, BUT NO gear for it. except for a few pieces here and there.
Is…maybe Del starting a trend? (Probably not but its fun to pick on him.)
1.) as weather gets nicer people do not feel the need to sign in as often.
2.) IRL issues?
3.) Burn out. It happens…
4.) other games to play.
5.) “nothing” to do, when raids are on “farm” people get bored faster.
I am interested to see how guilds/Blizzard will cope with these issues, especially as guilds get thru ICC, and the weather becomes nicer.
Blizzard appears to be trying the “tease” approach. They are giivng up bits and pieces of info for the new expansion and a new instance to run soon.
With the new instance, will it be enough to keep people in Blizzard’s grasp? I dont think so. It appears to be short like, EoE, and Sarth. Wham, Bam, Thank you Mamm kinda action. As other have mentioned toward the end of BC, Blizzard added Sunwell?
Now if Blizzard did something like that, they may have a better tool to keep subscriptions higher, and fight the trend of: “oh look a new thing to do”, reupp, and then unsub when they are on “farm”.
By giving teasers out about the game, they are keeping hopes and expectations high. But with a farout release date (I think when I last checked Amazon is showing a ship date in November, *checks again* hmm now no date), this buzz will phase. For Blizzard’s sake I do hope they can get a quality product out faster. There are quite a few other MMO’s coming out that will eat into Blizzard’s fans.
Final Fantasy 14 online (I know i will end up buying this)
Cat Girls….nuff said.
Star War: the Old Replblic (will also be getting this as well)
Jedi, sith, and lightsabers. Win.
The Secret World.
Looks impressive, but its made by Funcom, so less see if they will fail less then with Conan. The pseudo modern world aspect is cool. Definitely different, but will need to see if will jive. Look at the failures of anarchy online or even matrix online.
Also i am a pissed i have to work this weekend. At least I will get a 3 day weekend the following week. What to do with it? Visit out of state friends?, play more WoW? who knows lol.
