And I couldn’t care less. Read all about it. I’m a two MMO max guy and I’m foreseeing the immediate future to be occupied with WAR and Eve. Even if I keep WoW active, I’m not sure I’ll run off to Northrend and step onto the next treadmill. And knowing Blizzard, I can probably safely assume that I’ll have another year or two to cap and explore Lich King before the next expansion (if there is one) will ever see the light of day.
I gotta think that ol’ Blizz is feeling the pressure by timing this announcement (and quite a few other recent announcements) on the heels of every major WAR event. Three days before WAR’s general release and just before the holidays. Not since release have they managed to get something out the door in time for the holidays. Go them.
There’s an old adage among runners about “hearing footsteps”. When you’re in the lead and you start hearing footsteps, you never turn your head to see how close the competition is or you’ll lose the race. Hard to imagine that Blizz is feeling threatened by WAR, but they certainly seem to be in “reaction mode” (whether they are or not).
Even the cancellation process seems reactive to WAR. I must say, I’m a bit surprised by Blizz. Rule #1 is never to admit that you have competition because there are no competitors in your class. Rule #2 is to run your business so Rule #1 is always true…
Meh. I’m just grousing because I’m burnt on WoW and can’t log into WAR for another 8 hours.
