OP  3/23/12 1:33:51 PM#1

In a new interview at GameSpy, Blizzard's World of Warcraft team sat down to chat about the game and what may lay in store for it in the future. In one particularly significant quote, Lead Quest Designer Dave Kosak said, "I can't say any more about that, but I'll tell you that we're not going to significantly change up WoW at any point in the future."

The thought is that people have an expectation of what will happen when they enter World of Warcraft and the team wants players to meet that expectation. They want them to know the basics before they ever enter so they can concentrate on the environment, the story and not the mechanics.

Kosak continued, "When you get a quest to kill ten things, that lets you be your class, and you know exactly what to do, which means that you can concentrate on the story, concentrate on the atmosphere, concentrate on chatting with your friends. You can really be in the world."

Now if they'd undo the last 4 years of "improvements", I know I'd be happy.

With 10 millions subscribers why change things drasticly? look at apple and the ipads, nothing really changed from the first Ipad yet the new Ipad still sold millions in a matter of days.  People like familiarity change something and thy freak out.  "slowly slowly chatchy monkey" as they say.

Considering their top talent was taken off of WOW, this is what I'd expect anyway.  It's far easier to maintain the status quo.

Aye, people playing the game are still pretty much happy with the gameplay so why would they change it?

I've heard the talent trees lack complexity and interest. If they won't change this then I won't be returning. It's a pity though.

I love how he defends kill 10 x quests... just shows how out of touch these developers have become.

It'd be a massive mistake if they were to drastically change the game.  Look at how well it still does after all of this time.


You'd be an idiot to try and change anything big while still holding the greatest amount of players in your pool.

This guy is completely lost, and somehow doesn't even notice it.  The drudgery of kill x/y quest design, among several other things, are where Blizzard is leaving the door open for competitors.

It makes sense from a business point of view. Theyve decided to save any innovations for Titan. They know that wow is seven years old, and the only chance of keeping it milked is counting on nostalgia (itll be the first mmorpg for a lot of people) and that means keeping the core mechanics intact. Even if they only keep 10 percent of their base in 5 years doing that theyll make more money than many other mmos. Theyll bet on titan to try to keep the other 90% . Good business for Blizzard, a shame for wow. The mmo market is finally , slowly moving in other directions, but wow will remain where it is. A pity.

They've already catered to the lowest common denominator, claiming they will not implement anymore significant changes is completely irrelevant at this point.


What else is left to dumb down?


- Stats are being removed again with this next xpack, and some are being folded into one.


- Threat is basically non-existent now.


- Gear gets thrown at you the moment you hit endgame.


- Raids can be pugged with a large percentage of success.


- Battlegrounds are still AFKfests with very few legitimately competitive players participating.


- Arenas....


The list goes on and on and on, I could spend an hour coming up with examples. The game has had it's day, I'm sad to say, time to take it out to the barn like an old sheep dog and put it out of it's misery.

They may be leaving it open for competitors, but I have yet to see any competitor take on the challenge of changing more than a couple quests to something unique. Almost every MMORPG = go talk to X NPC, go kill Y monster, over and over and over.


WoW does at least have some fun mechanics in their quests...most online games don't even bother with that much. I wouldn't consider myself a fangirl, but haven't found anything I enjoy more.


In any case, just because you aren't having fun with something, doesn't mean other people aren't. Plenty of people are still enjoying WoW, new and old players alike.

Really 1million for just NA and EU? lol.. what purpose does your post have exactly? There is no point to it even the haters aren't that obvious.

There is no reason to drastically change things. I like what they're doing in MoP. Adding a ton of new content and new ways to play.
